UPDATED!!
More Gigantic SNL Ratings!!
Plus Learn Who’s On Monday’s Pre-Taped Pre-Election Special!!

I am – Hercules!!
POST-WEEKEND UPDATE: Saturday’s Affleck-hosted SNL featuring Tina Fey and the real McCains once again outperformed the overwhelming majority of primetime programming last week. If one excludes one episode, it was the most-watched SNL in 14 years. From Monday morning’s Hollywood Reporter :
Saturday night's show was only upstaged in the ratings this year -- and since 1997 -- by the Oct. 18 "SNL" where Palin made an actual appearance. That show, which averaged a 10.7 rating/24 share and eventually more than 13 million viewers, was the highest-rated "SNL" since 1994.
A spy has the dope on Monday night’s primetime SNL election special:
The show is a compilation tonight. There is new material (taped) -- including the real McCain and Palin in new intro's to clip packages. Also -- there's Amy as Hillary Clinton, some Barack/McCain stuff with Fred and Darrell (who also plays Chris Matthews and Fred Thompson in other taped pieces), Jason as Joe Biden, Kristen Wiig as Nancy Pelosi as well as Will Forte as John Edwards.


ORIGINAL POST: “Saturday Night Live” mastermind Lorne Michaels says Barack Obama had to bow out of two previous booked appearances this season; he missed a sketch with William Shatner in the season opener because of a hurricane and he missed a subsequent appearance to visit his ailing grandmother. Obama this week appeared on “Extra” with Mario Lopez, on MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” and on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” So it would be a little weird if he skipped the last SNL before the election. Word is John McCain will appear on tonight’s episode, but that won’t keep Obama away; the two candidates recently traded post-debate quips at the Al Smith dinner. Michael Calderone at politico.com says host Ben Affleck has been rehearsing a sketch about MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann:
A source described the skit as “savage,” in portraying Olbermann as a deranged person living at home with his mother. Affleck, said a source, became uneasy with Olbermann in attendance at the 3 p.m., closed-set rehearsal.
"American Idol" winner David Cook is the musical guest. There’s also an election-eve SNL-branded clip-show special airing Monday in primetime. The ratings for all things SNL have been spectacular this season, spectacular enough to keep the show on the air until the next presidential campaign gears up in two years. 11:30 p.m. Saturday. NBC. This gets my vote for the most effective campaign ad of the election: And this just made me laugh:

    I mean, he is buds with Kevin Smith, and I'm sure Affleck could use the exposure. When's the last time he did anything good? Maybe a good performance on SNL will put him back on the radar of producers.

    I guess milf lover you haven't seen "Gone Baby Gone". That was a great movie and Affleck's direction was pitch-perfect. That sonovabitch is bangin' Jennifer Garner, won an Oscar for his writing and has shown himself to be an excellent director. So it's Affleck's a ratbastard not a hasbeen.

    I think if I were married to Jennifer Garner and had a new baby in the last couple of years, I'd want to work less and be with the family a hell of a lot more than being out working all the time. But that's just me. Kudos to you, Ben! See ya in Daredevil 2!!! Maybe.

    he's such a cocky bitch. He thinks he's the reincarnation of Edward R. Murrow. And he's secretly in love with Bill O'Reilly. I just hope him being at the rehearsal doesn't compromise the skit.

    by imascooby1985

    He is a damn good actor, writer and director, but most importantly for tonight, the guy is funny as hell. Just watch any of the extras on a Kevin Smith film to see what I am talking about. The image of him in Clerks 2's blooper reel backing into a door and then getting so pissed he chucks his fast food at a playground comes to mind.

    Olbermann on SNL?

    by LeftFoot

    Olbermann on SNL was the most interesting part of that story. I like Olbermann and Maddow. Finger Puppet Theater always kills me. <BR><BR> Olbermann likes going on other shows. He did that follow-up bit on Letterman where he stood back stage in case McBush didn't show up again. Letterman had Biff measure Olbermann's skull with a tape measure because his head looks so freakishly huge. <BR><BR> And what will Olbermann's and Maddow's shows be about after Obama wins? Just listing the conservative lies and atrocities will get old at some point. <BR><BR> Rachael Maddow seems to have a lot more attractive women on her show than Olbermann's. Which is just fine with me.

    Billy O'Lie-lly may be a huge douche

    by Thrillho77

    but so is Keith Olbermann. He has the balls to make fun of O'Rielly for blowing up in between filming, but Olbermann has a track record as pretty difficult to work with himself. Both of these guys could be taken down a peg or three.

    Stop Hating Affleck

    by Crow3711

    So he isn't the best actor and he's made some terrible schlock for a paycheck. I too once despised all that is Affleck. Then I saw Gone Baby, Gone and all that hostility just seemed to float away. I don't think he should ever star in a movie again. But let's face it, the man does a badass cameo (reference every Kevin Smith movie), can be pretty funny and charming (Dogma) and is one helluva Director. I'm not more of a Ben Affleck apologist now. And to be honest, he sits around and laughs at all of his for hating him. He has an OSCAR people. He's banged like all of the hottest chicks in the world, and he didnt have to do it with coke like Ratner, they actually want to bang him. Constantly. I'm just saying that when he's good, he's good. And he has quite a few things to be proud of. I hope he directs again soon.

    GONE BABY GONE

    by BringingSexyBack

    Great film - if he never acts again, that would be fine as long as he churns out some good work as a director. Jennifer Garner continues to be MILFy. I'm sure this'll be funny tonight. <P> What would be great is if Obama and McKKKain had a real dance-off: <P> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzyT9-9lUyE

    David Cook looks like the pregnant "man" chick

    by thebearovingian

    Seriously. Like a chick who decided that she was really a dude in a female body and started taking testosterone to grow facial hair and deepen her voice. Always looks like he's wearing makeup and his face is way too light/white (yeah, I know they do that on TV but it shouldn't be that obvious). The dude has, like, penciled-in eyebrows for pete's sake. CREEPY.

  • Nov. 1, 2008, 4:34 p.m. CST

    Affleck.

    by Harold-Sherbort

    Crow3711 had it right. My favorite "Cameo" of his was from Boiler Room. Even though that movie was a Glengarry Glen Ross "update", his part in that was awesome. Of course not as good as Alec Baldwins, but great in it's own right.

  • Nov. 1, 2008, 4:38 p.m. CST

    Oh, and Olbermann is Prothero from V for Vendetta.

    by thebearovingian

    You remember, the loudmouth, blowhard propagandist framed in a constant closeup snarling as he froths at the mouth while condemning everyone else. He wasn't actually a good guy in the film and Olbermann fits the archetype, no?

  • Nov. 1, 2008, 5:10 p.m. CST

    Keith Olbermann gets a bum rap...

    by Mr. Profit

    I have met him several times. He is the nicest guy. He's smart, funny, and is also polite when he really doesn't have to be to fellow employees who work in smaller capacities. Now the real DBag is Scarborough. He is rude and his gym clothes suck something serious. He wears this ugly ass maroon shirt that looks like it came from 1984. And Mika is also a little witch. Haven't met Maddow yet.

    Loserguy3000: Olbermann gets better ratings than O'Reilly

    by SpyGuy

    Olbermann has been rubbing ratings data in O'Reilly's face all this week, so if Olbermann is pathetic and has no audience, what does that make O'Reilly?

  • Nov. 2, 2008, 12:24 a.m. CST

    SNL--actually impartial?

    by thegreatwhatzit

    They skewered Olbermann, that pompous douchebag? They finally realize that Biden is handicapping Obama? Fey (the ice princess) smiled affectionately at McCain at the conclusion of the skit? All of SNL's barbs are routinely predictable (they still canonize Obama); but tonight they were somehow impartial! McCain actually eclipsed Affleck; I'm seriously beginning to like the guy. I enjoy his self-denigration; Obama is a Hollywood machine (the same Hollywood that spawned AMOS & ANDY and other racist entertainment. Hollywood's "new" condescension is borderline racism).

  • Nov. 2, 2008, 12:25 a.m. CST

    No one watches Olbermann? Really?

    by Mr. Profit

    So why are MSNBC's ratings way up in the 7, 8, and 9pm time periods? Why is it the #2 24 hour news network? Why does it routinely beat FOX in the coveted 18-49 demo? Why is Olbermann's ratings up and gaining on O'Reilly? Say what you will about your personal dislike of the man, but his ratings and the ratings of the network he represents are all on the upswing. While MSNBC may get stupid flack for going to the left, the ratings show that there is an audience out there that agrees with that point of view the same way Fox News' audience is primarily to the right. And add me to the list of people who thought Affleck's impersonation was weak. The sketch went on way too long. It was ridiculous. And I feel that one of the only good news spoofs SNL has done was Hardball back in the day. This shit was lame.

    olbermann

    by maxwell's hammer

    I won't say that Olbermann doesn't have his flaws. Especially as we've gotten closer to the election, he's gotten rather worked up over getting a Democrat into office, and sometimes he goes a bit far with 'gotcha' quotes and willfully (I think) misrepresenting innocent stuff.<BR> <BR> But...<BR> <BR> ...Minus some of that stuff, I think he generally does a decent job of calling out various Republicans and whack-job Conservatives (yes, I think those are two distinct groups) like Limbaugh and Coultergeist on some of their more bizarre takes on things.<BR> <BR> That said, I thought the Affleck impersonation keyed in perfectly on some of his pompousness and the inflated sense of importance that have begun to seep into his "Special Comments". Back when he did a "Special Comment" when something very big needed discussing, those were kind of effective, but lately, their cropping up more and more and they've kind of lost their effect.<BR> <BR> And it is true, in key demographics, Olbermann has been beating the bastion of "Independent" politics, Bill-O.

    O'Reilly clobbers Olbermann (ratings)

    by thegreatwhatzit

    Yep, look no further than IMdB. Olbermann's pathetic hissy-fits briefly gained an audience (much like Mort Downey, viewers tuned-in to watch a train wreck). But the spectacle is over, the tolerance for Olbermann's ranting is short-lived. Again, check IMdB. I'm retiring now; after years of ragging on the show, I finally enjoyed an episode that spoofed both parties.

    And yes, I do listen to both their shows, even though Limbaugh has been absolutely ridiculous in his 180-degree support of John McCain since Obama clinched the Democratic nomination. I guess "Operation Chaos" only worked in the short-term.

    by Mr. Profit

    Dude I work in ratings research for a network. MSNBC and Olbermann and Maddow's ratings have been steadily growing for the last couple of months. And in key demos they are beating Fox. Fox may claim the overall ratings crown, but MSNBC has overtaken CNN in the ratings and is currently gunning for Fox. You may hate MSNBC but going Left was the smartest thing they have ever done. It was an underserved audience and now that MSNBC is serving them, the ratings are going up. And comparing Limbaugh to Olbermann? Really? Limbaugh yells, talks shit, and is a prescription drug abuser. Olbermann may come off as a bit of a know it all, but when u fact check his shit, you see he's right most of the time.

    by DigitalDong

    You find out they're not facts. That SNL skit put Countdown in perspective. You get half truths. Half quotes. And Olbermann being in love with himself. So much so NBC news is trying to seperate themselves from MSNBC. He never has a deabte with any guest, cause they all agree with him. And most of the claims he smears others with he's guilty of as well. Just in his mind he's fighting for good.

Though, I don't think they have to have some equal make-fun-of rule. Honestly, it's easier to make fun of McCain and Palin, not necessarily because of their politics, but because Obama's so smooth, he makes far less speaking flubs and really doesn't have many quirks.

    TOP TEN "CLASSLESS" ATTACKS FROM THE LEFT

    by Coughlins Laws

    10. Sending army of lawyers to Wasilla, Alaska to go dumpster diving for dirt on Palin. 9. Accusing Sarah Palin of being the Grandmother of her daughter with ZERO PROOF to back up such a claim. 8. Accusing John McCain of not knowing how to use email even though the reason he can't type effectively on a keyboard is because of his war injuries. 7. Having a state worker illegally looking through Joe "The Plumber"'s child support records in an effort to dig up dirt on him. 6. Democrats attaking McCain's POW record and saying he was treated like a "Prince", as if that term wasn't used to mock him. Trying to make the case that 5 and a half years in the rat infested Hanoi Hilton was a walk in the park takes balls. 5. To continously call Sarah Palin the mayor of 8,000 while just passing right over the fact that she is currently Governor of a state is disrespecting not only her, but all the people who voted for her and gave he an 80% approval rating. 4. Breaking into Sarah Palin's email sure was classy, wasn't it? 3. Guys like John Murtha saying that Pennslyvania is full of rednecks and wouldn't possibly vote for Obama. I can give you links to at lest a dozen stories where liberals make the point that anyone who doesn't vote for Obama is a redneck or a racist, even though the majority of this country very rarely votes for the Democrat in the last 60 years and alot of people are turned off by Obama's policies. It couldn't possibly be that we disagree with Obama, we MUST be racist!!!! 2. The liberals threatening riots and even one threatening a new Civil War if Obama is NOT elected. Really classy this line of thinking. Really says what they think of black people. Either they think they are incapable of NOT rioting, or they are giving them marching orders. (Thank you James Carville and Earica Jong) 1. And the number one classless attack on the Republicans coming from a Democrat is the souless Nicholas Provenzo who actually wrote an opinion piece for some online magazine stating that Sarah Palin is selfish and should have aborted her baby, Trig, because the baby is a "financial burden". When to defend this scumbag? Anyway, there's a bunch of "CLASSLESS" attacks from the left. Have a nice election!!!

And before you get all huffy puffy about Palin having spent $150,000 on wardrobes, I din't see you complaining about the millions of dollars Obama wasted on his Rock Concert/Political Rally in Berlin. This man has spent almost HALF A BILLION DOLLARS ON HIS ELECTION CAMPAIGN, BECAUSE HE LIED THAT HE WAS GOING TO TAKE MATCHING FUNDS!!! How many children could he have fed?

Aside from trying to make hay out of the $150,000.00 wardrobe thing I can't think of any. <P> Contrast that with the unending accusations of "Socialist/Marxist", "Hates America", "Not a real American", "Anti-America" that come from the official McCain / Palin campaign. <P> And please use the Paragraph tag.

    Here are some facts about Obama's socialist connections

    by Coughlins Laws

    We know for a fact he was friends with Bill Ayers (forget his terrorism, the guys is an admitted socialist). In Obama's book, IN HIS OWN WORDS, he admitted befriending "Marxist Professors". Obams said he'd like to "spread the wealth around", almost quoting Karl Marx directly. When asked if he regretted saying it, he said "NO!!!" He voted for the banking bailout (although McCain did, too) and Congressional Democrats have promised more money. He has talked about taking over the Health Care Industry. Congressional Democrats have threatened to take over the Oil Industry. So, I ask you, how do you figure Obama isn't a socialist? Will you still think that in 4 years if Obama gets elected and you see how much of the private sector Obama takes over? I really don't even know how it's a debate that Obama will practice socialism...

He named to former Republicans that have attacked McCain and a conservative publication that attacked McCain as the only evidence of those on the Right being "classy". So, I gave him a LONGER LIST of examples of Democrats NOT being classy. The DailyKos and the Huffington Post cheer when Republicans die (see Tony Snow) and advance "CLASSLESS" and unsubstantiated charges about Palin being the Grandmother of her Daughter, with ZERO PROOF of such a charge. I'm just saying, yeah, I see irrational hatred and classless attacks coming from pockets of the Right, but hatred and classlessness is definitely more prominent on the Left. I don't even think this is arguable. The Palin hatred has spread so far into the mainstream you can't find anything comparable against Obama from the right...

    RE: TOP TEN "CLASSLESS" ATTACKS FROM THE LEFT

    by zooch

    Barack Obama has run a clean campaign. His campaign was not directly involved in any of the attacks you mentioned. McCain's camp however, is directly responsible for smears saying 1. Barack "pals" around with terrorist 2. calling Barack a "socialist" 3. attacking Barack's patriotism 4. the "teaching sex education to kindergarters" smears and 4. the robocalls. McCain's camp actually announced they were going to focus on character attacks such as Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright instead of talking about the economy because if they keep talking about the economy they would lose. The kind of smears the McCain camp are using have one specific purpose in mind and that is to try and make people think Obama is "different" and have been at times, although no one in the media will dare say it, borden-line racist.

Barack is a socialist, has quoted socialists, has said he was friends with "Marxist Professors", said he wanted to "spread the wealth around" etc, etc, etc. 3. Who attacked Barack's patriotism?

He also kept cracking himself up. Affleck really is quite taken with himself. Ben Affleck really does not have a bigger fan in he world than Ben Affleck. <P> They really should have put Bill Hader on the case if they wanted a good impression. I think Lorne Micheals or Seth Myers must have some kind of problem with Hayder. He is one of the most talented cast members yet he never seems to get used effectively. <P> SNL also seems to miss that Olbermann has his tongue planted firmly in his cheek most of the time. Where O'Reilly takes himself deadly seriously. It is a demonstration of Stephen Colbert's talent that he can pull off a consistently funny parody of all the TV talk blowhards night after night.

If we took our troops out last summer, wouldn't we have lost the war? She never questioned his patriotism (why are you so defensive?). Obama is the one who has never been for victory. He keeps tauting the fact he's been against the war from the beginning. He was against the strategy that has brought victory within sight (the death total in Iraq last month is the lowest it's been since the conflict began). So, how can you say that Obama wants us to win in Iraq?

What was supposed to be a nailbiter simply hasn't materialized into a very tough fight from the McCain campaign, and the Obama ground game in Colorado is an elite, overwhelming force. When all is said and done, stunningly beautiful Colorado will have two Democratic Senators, a Democratic governor, four or five out of seven House seats held by Dems, and will have given its nine electoral votes to the lanky Senator from Illinois. Chuck Todd made an outstanding point about Colorado and the Republican party's woes: <p> If I were the Republican Party, I'd make Michigan and Colorado my petri dishes for experiments to get the party's groove back. Until the GOP can appeal to secular independents in the West and working class Democrats in the Midwest, they are going to be a minority party.

    the notion that socialism is subversive to freedom

    and democracy is an illusion brought on by decades of hard core propaganda. it exists all over the world in great, democratic, free countries and has been working successfully alongside full fledged democracy for decades, in countries that outrank us globally in quality of life studies. this notion that it's some evil specter related to totalitarianism is an absolute fallacy on the part of those who believe it. and it's a great tragedy that many in our country suffer a much lower quality of life than need be because people so readily cling to these cliched bumper-sticker-slogan ideas about what makes America great.

In some areas you may also have the opportunity to cast your ballot on various legislative proposals.<p>The right to a private ballot means that you have the opportunity to vote for the candidates of your choice and then shut the fuck up about it.

    Obama victory not a sure thing

    by AntoniusBloc

    <p>Don't listen to all the political 'experts' in the news media who say Obama has this won. Recent history shows that even practical unanimity among so-called experts and talking heads could end up being wrong. I'm a New York Giants fan, and last season, every so called expert and talking head in the media predicted the undefeated New England Patriots would crush the underdog Giants in the Superbowl, and we know what happened there. The Giants handed the 'invincible' Patriots their only loss of the season and became world champions. They beat the odds and proved the talking heads wrong.<p/> <p>There was another case where every expert agreed, and ended up being completely wrong: it was the days following the attacks on our country on 9/11. The day when thousands of innocent americans were faced with the choice of jumping to their deaths or getting burned alive, as they made their last cel phone calls to their loved ones. What followed not long after, in the dust filled air, amidst the smoking debris, family after family, husbands, wives, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, came to the site of the attack, with photos and descriptions of their loved ones, desperately holding it up to the tv news cameras present, pleading to let them know that there loved ones escaped this viscious attack,(the type of attack people like William Ayers, Obama's friend, endorses, and believes more should be done, of course to achieve radical change). While the images of people running from large dust clouds and jumping to their deaths was shocking, scary, and angering, it was seeing the desperation of these family members, on the brink of despair, yet hanging on to a thread of hope, that there loved ones, or someone who has seen their loved ones, would respond to their search, this is when it really hit me, an overwhelming and coninuous deep feeling of grief for each one that appeared, as if their loved ones were my own. An outpouring of grief and sadness, and the thought, that somehow, we can never let this happen again. But while this was happening, every expert, from almost every field, and every political persuasion predicted that we would be attacked again, on U.S. soil, in some form or fashion, even if not on the same scale; perhaps in the form of suicide bombers, like those that occur in Israel; they predicted a lifestyle of living with the threat of terorist attacks and living in fear we would have to get used to. Check any news archive in the days that followed, every expert was sure we would be attacked again on U.S. soil. It never happened. That 'fear' of going to a public place for fear of a dirty bomb, or suicide bomber, amazingly after such unanimous expert predictions, is practically non-existent. The place where we still have some hint of that fear and reality of a possible attack is the airport, but even that has diminished. What was also shocking about that day is that once one attack was confirmed, we would then hear about another attack on the Pentagon, then a plane going down somewhere else. Was our city next? Do we want that type of fear to return? <p/> <p>Obama constantly says we have to change from President Bush's policies. Unlike McCain, he feels such a change is necessary in our foreign policy and in dealing with terrorism. Yet, despite economic issues, President Bush has kept us safe here on U.S. soil. Despite expert prediction, he has kept us safe from attack, and given us a feeliing of security. Not only has terrorism been prevented on U.S. soil but has gone down significantly around the world. We are beating the enemy. Afghanastan is a problem again because they have retreated back there, where they started. Obama wants to change this course? Does he even want to change what has been working? Does he want to continue to win the war on terror, or will he allow them a chance to strengthen again? What are we to believe when Obama supported a candidate in Kenya named Odinga who promised to stop the war on terror in that country? What are we to believe when Obama has dinner with pro terrorist PLO members, responsible for many suicide bombers? What are we supposed to think when Obama thinks little that we have killed and captured many al queada terrorists in Iraq; he diminishes the importance of the ideal of freedom giving no value to the fact that our military has freed the people of Iraq. He was against the surge that is leading to success in Iraq, and he doesn't seem to understand the value of having a new ally in Iraq to help in that region, especially against threats like Iran. Yet, Obama did once say that Iran is a 'small country' and not a serious threat. What are we to believe when Obama and his congressional allies are quoted as saying that they cut our national security budget by a huge margin, and leave us vulnerable to nuclear missile attack, especially by terrorist nations such as Iran. Obama claims to be able to gain respect around the world, yet the current French president says Obama's view of international politics is naive and immature. Obama's own VP selection Joe Biden predicts that Obama will surely be tested by our enemies as a result of his image of being weak. Even Hillary Clinton said that it would be unwise to elect someone who requires 'on the job training' in this volatile international climate.<p/> <p>Obama should be clear on exactly what he wants to change in regards to our national security and the war on terror, because of the very fact that despite the predictions following 9/11, the policies of the Bush administration have kept us safe. McCain will continue to emphasize strength while facing our enemies, and to keep up the policies that have kept our homeland safe from attack. What change for the better could Obama offer in this regard? <p/> <p> So, the experts were wrong, so far, that we would be attacked again by terrorists on U.S. soil, and that it would be something we would have to get used to, thank God. Experts were wrong about the Patriots beating the Giants. Let's hope the experts are wrong again about the results of this election, so we can worry more about Superbowl results and less about being blown to bits by a radical terrorist at the local grocery store, coffee shop, or mall.<p/>

It involved a monumental failure of proper liaison between intelligence agencies - which NOBODY in the Bush administration ever had the integrity to admit responsibility for.<p> "The policies of the Bush administration have kept us safe."<p> The policies of the Bush administration caused the unnecessary war in Iraq, (the dictator of which was not an ally of Al Quaeda) and that war has caused US casualties in the tens of thousands. <p> Try using facts and logic in your argument if you want to persuade people to vote for your candidate.

    Regarding zfisk, the whole thing is pretty random. DocPaz and I had identified his TB handle (nevahagin) quite sometime ago. Recently, during one of the recent Superman threads, he posted some moronic garbage and I called him out on it. I also fired a random shot insinuating that I knew who he really was. He must have replied with something really crazy because not long afterwards, nevahagin was banned.<P>Fast forward to the most recent Superman TB. I noticed a couple of posts made by a Talkbacker that I have grown to suspect is another one of zfisk's usernames. (It's one that Xiphos would easily recognize.) So, out of curiousity, I went and checked zfisk's blog. Lo' and behold, look what I found. Not only has he updated the layout, he posted a blog, aimed soley at me, discussing the very thing I called him out on. Needless to say, I cracked up and I'm glad to see that I pegged that bastard.<P>As for DocPazuzu, I sent him the details but I'm not sure of his current TB participation status. Yet, I have little doubt that when faced with the opportunity, he will swoop down and strike like a mighty bird of prey.<P>And yes, BlackCrippler is indeed BraneRobot/AnimalStructure.

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ....if anything should upset people its the fact that WE-- TAX PAYING AMERICANS are covering Joe The Plumber's fat lazy ass for refusing to pay his fucking taxes. He is a mooch off society. The same thing McCain is supposedly trying to combat. Hypocritical piece of shit-- just like with his "I'm trying to combat unfair social security collection" speech while collecting $23,157 in social security benefits in 2007. While his lizard wife is a fucking baziliionare. See that. Out of fucking touch. Don't act like you give a shit about the working man you crusty old piece of spineless shit cake.

    .....as a representation of the fucking joke McCain's campaign was. From the beginning, the campaign was a dysfunctional piece of shit. The fact that they assume American's are so fucking brainless and will swallow the Joe The Plumber bullshit and vote McCain, is absolutely disgusting. <P>Yeah he's just a simple plumber trying to buy the business-- bull fucking shit. 99% of plumbers make less than 250k-- I'm supposed to feel sorry for the 1% that may pay a few hundred dollars extra tax?

    Joe the Plumber

    by Thunderbolt Ross

    Good ol' Joe went out of his way to talk to Obama. The idea that Obama took it to Joe is one of the most moronic things that keeps getting repeated, since it's on video and has been shown a million times that this jackass got Obama's attention, not vice-versa.<p>I've never heard Obama bash the guy, not once. I challenge anyone to find an instance of this. And not something that happened after Joe started shilling for McCain directly, though even then I don't think it's happened.<p>The "victim" in this case brought it on himself, from start to finish. Don't want the attention? Don't get in front of the cameras, douche.

This is not a review of a final film. This is me passing along impressions of the footage I was shown. No more. No less. If that bothers you, don't read set visits. Wait for the final review.

I've been keeping up with Haaretz - recently the government officials have been warning about potential assassination threats against Livni, and there's a battle of wills between Likud and the rising Left. ANY progress to be made vis-a-vis diplomacy with Iran will ONLY come with an Israel governed by the Peace Now contingent. If Likud prevails (and they are not looking so good at the moment), they will sabotage Obama. No doubt. <P> The settlers are now calling for violence against Israeli police, calling them "Nazis". How crazy is that? <P> As I hope for a Democratic ascension in the U.S., I also hope for an ascension of the Left in Israel. A coalition of the two is our best hope for the establishment of peace in the Middle East, which will hopefully spread across the globe.

Robo-calling the man upstairs' direct line once too often, McCain campaign workers found themselves on the receiving end of a "come to Jesus" moment. Jesus himself picked up the phone and told the McCain campaign spokesperson on the other end of the line to "Stop f***ing calling me! I was going to vote for you, but I am so damned tired of hearing Joe the Plumber this and Maverick that, I'm voting for the guy with the Muslim name! Are you happy now you schmuck?!!" McCain supporters may have been better off rallying behind a carpenter instead of a plumber. Apparently Jesus doesn't like looking at hairy ass-cracks. At a rally attended by some umpteen-million people, Barack Obama wasted no time in responding: "There are some of you out there who think of me as the Messiah. Well, actually I'm better than him. Jesus actually looks up to me. So when it comes time to cast your ballot for change in just a few hours, remember to vote for the guy who got Jesus to convert. I'm not running to be your President, I'm running to be your Savior!" The speech was followed by chants of Barack Obama for President! Barack Obama for Savior!"

    McCain crowd in Florida "Disturbingly small"

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Something was missing from the first of John McCain's seven campaign stops today: the crowd. <p> Kicking off the last day of the election in Tampa, Florida, John McCain was welcomed by a roughly 1,000 voters. Compare that to the 15,000 people that President Bush drew to a rally in Tampa on the eve of the 2004 election. "What's up with that?" wrote Adam Smith at the St. Petersburg Times. <p> Even Fox News had a bit of difficulty spinning the whole thing. Carl Cameron, who is following the Senator at every stop on Monday, said the crowd size was likely "a little bit disturbing" for the McCain campaign. He added that organizers had set up the venue predicting ten times the number of attendees.<p> "Last night in Miami Sen. McCain arrived for a midnight rally and had more than 10,000 people in Miami. Today in Tampa, for a morning event, it's a small crowd, only about 1,000. And I can tell you is it looks like it was set up with the perimeter and all for about 10 times this crowd. In addition, you'll note that there are no actual McCain signs here. This is one of the events that is put on, ostensibly paid for by the Republican Party."<p> Later in his segment, Cameron tried to explain the empty venue as a byproduct of volunteers being dispatched for get-out-the-vote activities. But he couldn't hide the fact that the Tampa kick-off wasn't the best start for a long day.<p> "They believe that their 72-hour get-out-the-vote exercise will make the difference," he said. "That is one of the reasons why the size of this crowd is a little bit disturbing for the McCain campaign."<p>

He was 44, and a former senior aide to New York City schools chancellor Joel Klein and mayor Michael Bloomberg. <P> For this reason, the mood in Obama's campaign headquarters is more somber than it otherwise would be. <P> In a statement this morning, Obama said he was "shocked and saddened" to learn of the death.<P> "Terence was a strong force in this campaign, with a positive outlook that brought people together. He was much loved by his team, who often repeated his motto of 'leave no stone unturned.' His enthusiasm, talent, and warm heart will truly be missed. The thoughts and prayers of the entire Obama-Biden family are with his wife and loved ones," Obama said. <P> Tolbert is survived by his wife, Freida, and his mother, Carolyn.<P>

    Here are the answers we need!! From CNN....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    (CNN) -- There's a whole world of people out there, and boy, are they pissed off. <p> The anonymity of the Internet encourages online ranting, from election-season tirades to mockery of celebrities.<p> On political blogs, the invective flies. Posters respond to the latest celebrity gossip with mockery or worse. Sports fans set up Web sites with names that begin with "fire," hoping coaches, athletic directors and sportscasters lose their jobs.<p> And though there are any number of bloggers and commenters who attempt to keep their postings and responses on a civil level, all too often interactive Web sites descend into ad hominem attacks, insults and plain old name-calling. Indeed, there are even whole sites devoted to venting, such as justrage.com (one screed there was titled, "I don't give a flying f***, so f*** you") and mybiggestcomplaint.com.<p> This is not a world Emily Post would want to be caught in after dark.<p> "The Internet can be a great tool," said Sara Black, a professor of health studies at St. Joseph's University who takes a particular interest in online bullying. "Like any tool, it can also be misused." <p> One reason for the vitriol that emerges on the Web, experts say, is the anonymity the Internet provides. Commenters seldom use their real names, and even if they do, the chance for retaliation is slim.<p> "In the [pre-Internet era], you had to take ownership [of your remarks]. Now there's a perception of anonymity," said Lesley Withers, a professor of communication at Central Michigan University. "People think what they say won't have repercussions, and they don't think they have to soften their comments."<p> Contrast that with a face-to-face conversation, or even a phone conversation, where you can judge people's moods from facial movements or vocal inflections, observes University of Texas psychology professor Art Markman.<p> "It's hard to be aggressive when you're face to face," he said.<p> Moreover, he points out, aggression often carries a subtext of power.<p> "A lot of times, real anger is an attempt to get control over a situation where the person doesn't usually have it," he said. In that respect, comments to blog posts are attempts to strike back.<p> Those power games are innately grasped by children and teens, with schools serving as a perennial social laboratory.<p> Cheryl Dellasega, a Penn State women's studies professor, ticks off hypothetical examples that could have come straight from the scripts to "Mean Girls" or "Heathers."<p> "Girls who are getting teased come home and let their [aggressors] have it by putting something on their blog and starting a rumor campaign," she said. And instead of rumors simply making the rounds among peer groups -- which can be bad enough -- "they go out to a much bigger group, a worldwide group. The impact is devastating, and it's as easy as clicking a button."<p> "Kids don't realize that one post can destroy somebody's life forever," she added.<p> Indeed, such incidents have made headlines. In 2006, 13-year-old Megan Meier committed suicide after becoming attracted to a boy on MySpace who then turned on her. The boy turned out to be a hoax created by a neighbor family that included a former friend of Meier's. <p> In August, The New York Times Magazine did a story about trolls, some barely out of their teens, who antagonize others for the sake of "lulz": "Lulz is watching someone lose their mind at their computer 2,000 miles away while you chat with friends and laugh," one ex-troll told the publication.<p> Adults aren't immune by any means. A Japanese woman, angry at her online "husband," killed his avatar after he divorced her. A South Korean actress committed suicide after being harassed by online rumors following a divorce. Celebrity gossip sites are full of snarky comments about stars; reaction from readers is often brutal, turning the story into the online equivalent of a pile-on.<p> Markman is quick to observe that he doesn't believe there's more anger out there. But, he said, "there are more ways of expressing it on the Internet."<p> "We've all had interactions with unpleasant people, but we don't confront them. We take it out elsewhere," he said. "What the Internet has created is groups of people where there are no repercussions with being too aggressive."<p> Indeed, though electronically transmitted anger has parallels throughout human history -- the bitter letter, the village gossip -- the speed at which it travels, and the number of people who may come in contact with it, is something new, says St. Joseph's Black.<p> "[Electronic] media can increase potential for violence in a number of ways," she said in an e-mail interview. "First, it introduces ideas (good and bad) that people may not have come up with on their own. Second, it is easier to depersonalize the victim, facilitating perpetration. Third, aggressive behaviors may be reinforced with points, attention or status, especially in games."<p> Withers has seen that first hand. She teaches a course on the "dark side of communication" at Central Michigan, involving "the mean or evil things we do on a day-to-day basis," as she describes it: cheating, for example, or lying.<p> As part of the course, several of her students work on a collaborative project with students at other schools, and they come together in Second Life, the virtual reality environment. If someone isn't pulling his or her weight, says Withers, others can be harsh in their judgments -- harsher than in real life, because the anger is expressed at the person's avatar. <p> Which led at least one of Withers' students to forget that the avatar was attached to a real person.<p> "One student went off on another student and she was sitting in the classroom a few rows behind him," she said. "He knew she was there, but didn't -- there was that distancing."<p> Is there a way to restore civility to the Internet? Among children and teenagers, say Dellasega and Black, it's up to parents to exercise control.<p> "I think parents need to take responsibility," Dellasega said. "They give kids computers and leave them alone. ... When a child is 8 or 9, the computer should be in a public place. Kids should understand that using a computer is a privilege, not a right." <p> Schools can also play a role, she says.<p> Black adds that parents should set clear rules on behavior and build empathy in their kids by having them reach out to those who are different.<p> As for adults, human nature dictates that people will always lash out at others, whether it's over a perceived insult or simply because of a power differential. Web sites may ban the worst offenders, but they'll almost always pop up elsewhere, using a different name, e-mail address or even computer.<p> "Some people are just bitter and angry," said psychiatrist Dr. Terry Eagan, medical director of the Moonview Sanctuary in Santa Monica, California. "Sometimes, they're against everyone, other times against a specific group. That person can get really stimulated and can say all sorts of horrible things. But I don't think it's not like they didn't exist before."<p> Whether the problem will get control of us, or we will get control of the problem, is in the way we face up to it, he says. Anger, he says, is rolled up with anxiety and fear, and nothing creates more fear like a lack of understanding.<p> "I tell patients that I'd rather know everything about people; information is powerful," he said. "When the climate of the world is more fear-based, it permeates everything."<p>

    Cheney's hometown paper endorses Obama

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    (CNN)—With just over a day before polls start to close, Vice President Dick Cheney's hometown newspaper named their presidential pick — Democratic Sen. Barack Obama. <p> "It is a foregone conclusion that Wyoming's three electoral votes will go to Sen. John McCain. It would be easy for the Star-Tribune to simply agree with the majority of voters in this red state and endorse the Republican candidate for president," the Editorial Board of Wyoming's Casper Star-Tribune wrote Monday.<p> "But this isn't an ordinary election, and Sen. Barack Obama has the potential to be an extraordinary leader at a time we desperately need one."<p> The board goes on to commend Obama's judgement, criticizing McCain's conduct during his campaign and choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate.<p> "If the John McCain of 2000 saw today's counterpart, he wouldn't recognize himself," the Board wrote. "McCain is no longer a GOP maverick, or the war hero whose principles were unwavering. He has flip-flopped on issues ranging from tax cuts to torture in an effort to win over the conservative base of his party. He has waged a dismal campaign based on fear and divisiveness."<p> Cheney formally endorsed McCain Saturday, while at an event in Laramie, Wyoming.<p> "This year, of course, I'm not on the ballot, so I am here … not to vote for me, but I want to join daughter Liz, who is with me today, join us in casting … our ballots for John McCain and Sarah Palin," Cheney said.<p> Obama quickly seized the moment as another opportunity to tie McCain to the Bush presidency.<p> "I'd like to congratulate Sen. McCain on this endorsement, because he really earned it. That endorsement didn't come easy," Obama said at the Pueblo rally.<p> He added that Cheney "knows that with John McCain, you get a twofer: George Bush's economic policy and Dick Cheney's foreign policy. And that is a risk the American people cannot afford to take."<p> Echoing Obama’s latest campaign ad, the Star-Tribune’s editorial board commended him for receiving endorsements from "extremely capable leaders."<p> "It's good to know that he turns to the likes of Warren Buffett for financial matters and retired Gen. Colin Powell on military issues."

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    I don't believe McCain meant "No he is decent family man," as a slam on Arabs. After thinking about it I laughed, thinking-- what you can't be an Arab and a decent family man? But I don't think thats what McCain meant. He was just countering the crazy white bitch's accusation that an Arab basically meant a TERRORIST. So he was responding more to the accusation that he was a terrorist instead of a person of Arabic decent. I know-- it seems a little hokey, but I never once thought that was a racist moment. Though he does have many others that really are.

    You think FDR wasn't an action hero? He was an action hero in a wheelchair! Now that's badass! I am not saying intelligence is a bad thing. Far from it. I think Bush was about as stupid as they come, and it showed in almost every speech he gave. But we needed a strong leader willing to commit to action shortly after 9/11, and he did so brilliantly. He screwed up by becoming overzealous and overreaching in his subsequent actions. Americans got rid of Jimmy Carter in part because he wasn't willing to slam the hammer down on the Iranians holding our countrymen hostage. Carter was by all accounts a very bright guy - a nuclear physicist - but he lacked the gumption the country so desperately needed when our nose had been bloodied. Please don't misunderstand me, I want a President who is a really smart guy. Education is very important. But so is grit and resolve. There is a desire in most Americans for an Action Hero as their President. Americans don't like wimps. I bet you don't either.

    Media has yet to help us know who Obama really is

    by AntoniusBloc

    If the media doesn't scrutinize him, and we have an incomplete picture of him, how do we know the pictue Obama's campaign gives us, the image they try to paint, how do we know it is accurate? The major media has done a misservice to the public. The scrutinize and attack the VICE PRESIDENT of one party, they scrutinize an average middle class citizen, but the major media does not scrutinize Obama. Where was the investigative reporting on Ayers? About Wright? About his numerous communist connections? About his extremist pro abortion stance? The LA Times refusal to release the video described below is just another example of how the media has failed us.<p/> How can we vote for someone and not know who he really is? <p/> ---------------------------------- <p/> The Los Angeles Times says "its promise to their source prevents the paper from publically posting the video, which shows Barack Obama praising Palestinian activist Rashid Khalidi at a 2003 banquet. <p/> The original article, which first appeared in April, said that Obama's friendships with Palestinians in Chicago AND his presence at key Palestinian community events had exposed why he seems sympathetic to the Palestinian viewpoints on Middle East politics. The report included a detailed description of the tape, but the newspaper did not make the video public. John McCain's presidential campaign Tuesday accused the Los Angeles Times of "intentionally suppressing" a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where then-state Sen. Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading (PLO) Palestinian scholar and activist. "A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi," said McCains campaign spokesman. " . . . The election is one week away, and it's unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama, that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job -- and make public information PUBLIC. " The LA Times just issued this statement. "The Los Angeles Times did not publish the videotape because it was provided to us by a confidential source who did so on the condition that we not release it," said the newspaper's editor, Russ Stanton. Note: I just called them *wink*, and if you hit option #5 "Editorial", the call will just hang up. BUT, I called back *shrug* and pressed option #3 "Display Advertising".... you'll get an actual live person *wink wink*. I simply, (& GRACIOUSLY I might add) said "I strongly ask that your paper NO LONGER intentionally suppress information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi. Is there anyone in management I can speak to, hun?" The gal replied, (verbatim) "ohh, this is like the hundredth call I've gotten like this, one second please." A man then picked up and I repeated my simple request. He mumbled something incoherent & automatically connected me to a recording. Oh, I almost forgot....here's the numba. *wink wink* It takes but a nano-second to call. Just sayen. ;) 213 - 237- 5000 "....my point is that there is so much dirt on Obama that he has lied about and later forced to admitted to - how in the heck has he gotten this far?! It makes you wonder just who is pulling strings here. Read on..... ----------------- Bulletin Message ----------------- Thnx: keith Date: Oct 29, 2008 12:33 PM RE: And the dirty Obama campaigning continues.<p> There's no telling where these contributions originate from in most cases,and Obama likes it that way,he doesn't want you to know how much is pouring in from Muslim nations. <p/> Obama has been mentored by so many unscrupulous characters,Frank Marshall Davis,( an America hating member of the Communist Party USA), Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn(of the "weathermen underground,that bombed federal buildings in the 60's and 70's),Rev. Jeremiah Wright(another racist America hater,that said"God damn America),Tony Rezko(slum landlord,who helped Obama purchase his Chicago mansion,he was also indicted,and convicted on charges he solicited kickbacks from companies seeking state pension business under his friend Gov. Blagojevich. Federal prosecutors maintain that $10,000 from the alleged kickback scheme was donated to Obama's run for the U.S. Senate. ). <p/> And the list goes on,I might elaborate more on it later when I have time....my point is that there is so much dirt on Obama that he has lied about and later admitted to -how in the heck has he gotten this far?!.....It makes you wonder just who is pulling the strings here. All I can say is,if he's elected it could be the beginning of the end for our nation. Obama Accepting Untraceable Donations: Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign is allowing donors to use largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor's identity, campaign officials confirmed. Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged. Instead, the campaign is scrutinizing its books for improper donations after the money has been deposited. The Obama organization said its extensive review has ensured that the campaign has refunded any improper contributions, and noted that Federal Election Commission rules do not require front-end screening of donations. <p/> In recent weeks, questionable contributions have created headaches for Obama's accounting team as it has tried to explain why campaign finance filings have included itemized donations from individuals using fake names, such as Es Esh or Doodad Pro. Those revelations prompted conservative bloggers to further test Obama's finance vetting by giving money using the kind of prepaid cards that can be bought at a drugstore and cannot be traced to a donor. <p/> The problem with such cards, campaign finance lawyers said, is that they make it impossible to tell whether foreign nationals, donors who have exceeded the limits, government contractors or others who are barred from giving to a federal campaign are making contributions. <p/> "They have opened the floodgates to all this money coming in," said Sean Cairncross, chief counsel to the Republican National Committee. "I think they've made the determination that whatever money they have to refund on the back end doesn't outweigh the benefit of taking all this money upfront. " The Obama campaign has shattered presidential fundraising records, in part by capitalizing on the ease of online giving. Of the $150 million the senator from Illinois raised in September, nearly $100 million came in over the Internet. Lawyers for the Obama operation said yesterday that their "extensive back-end review" has carefully scrubbed contributions to prevent illegal money from entering the operation's war chest. "I'm pretty sure if I took my error rate and matched it against any other campaign or comparable nonprofit, you'd find we're doing very well," said Robert Bauer, a lawyer for the campaign. "I have not seen the McCain compliance staff ascending to heaven on a cloud. " The Obama team's disclosures came in response to questions from The Washington Post about the case of Mary T. Biskup, a retired insurance manager from Manchester, Mo., who turned up on Obama's FEC reports as having donated $174,800 to the campaign. Contributors are limited to giving $2,300 for the general election. Biskup, who had scores of Obama contributions attributed to her, said in an interview that she never donated to the candidate. "That's an error," she said. Moreover, she added, her credit card was never billed for the donations, meaning someone appropriated her name and made the contributions with another card. When asked whether the campaign takes steps to verify whether a donor's name matches the name on the credit card used to make a payment, Obama's campaign replied in an e-mail: "Name-matching is not a standard check conducted or made available in the credit card processing industry. We believe Visa and MasterCard do not even have the ability to do this. "Instead, the campaign does a rigorous comprehensive analysis of online contributions on the back end of the transaction to determine whether a contribution is legitimate. " Juan Proaño, whose technology firm handled online contributions for John Edwards's presidential primary campaign, and for John F. Kerry's presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee in 2004, said it is possible to require donors' names and addresses to match those on their credit card accounts. But, he said, some campaigns are reluctant to impose that extra layer of security. "Honestly, you want to have the least amount of hurdles in processing contributions quickly," Proaño said. Sen. John McCain's campaign has also had questionable donations slip through. Dan Pfeiffer, Obama's communication's director, said that "no organization can fully insulate itself from these problems. The McCain campaign has accepted contributions from fraudulent contributors like 'A for You,' 'Adorable Manabat,' 'The Gun Shop,' and 'Jesus II' and hundreds of anonymous donors. " But R. Rebecca Donatelli, who handles online contributions for the McCain operation and the RNC, said security measures have been standard in the GOP nominee's fundraising efforts throughout the campaign. She said she was "flabbergasted" to learn that the Obama campaign accepts prepaid cards. "Yes, a gift card would go through the same process as a regular credit card and be subject to our same back-end review," the Obama campaign said in its response to questions about the use of such cards. Campaign finance lawyers said there is a long history of debate within the FEC about how to ensure that donors use their own credit cards. Election lawyer Brett Kappel said the FEC has never grappled with the question of cash cards. "The whole system is set up for them to accept the payment, then determine whether it is legal or not. And if it's not, send it back. That's what the statute requires," he said

    by Snake Foreskin

    conservatives sat on their hands rather than vote for a guy they didn't like. McCain isn't very conservative himself and choosing Palin as his running mate didn't have the intended consequence of shoring up the Conservative base. So we may see a close election with Obama on top but no real mandate. Of course he's ahead in the polls. His supporters are batshit crazy for him. Look at BSB and Danny and others on here. They practically said he is their savior. That's just not healthy. It's immature for one. And it's going to lead to depression and disillusionment when he doesn't live up to the incredibly high standards being set by his side. I think they should play Jesus Christ Superstar as his acceptance music. Unbelievable.

But don't start dancing on the other guys grave when there are still over 120 million people who haven't voted yet. It's just asinine.

You realize all of these polls with Obama ahead assume that the Dem edge over Repbulicans are about 40% Dem to 30% Rep, right? They are assuming that every single new Democrat will show up to vote. Well, I've got news for you. The most unreliable voting bloc every single cycle is young people. If the youth vote doesn't come out like they think it will, Obama can't win. He is tied or is losing in very other age group. So, get cocky if you want. But just remember, if the same Rep to Dem split that happenned in 2004 happens this year, Dems and Reps about even, McCain wins by 3 or 4 points. It's all about turn-out which the Republicans have been great at the last decade and that the Democrats just haven't been doing...

    "Thank you for enrolling into the French Foriegn Legion. I know you were hesitant on joining but I can assure you the next five years with us will be a big payoff for you. And you do understand, that you cannot back out and that you must fulfill your term here?" "Yes I do Sir. And thank you. I do have one question though. Being that we are confined to this installation, how does one satisfy themselves if we have no contact with any women. I mean what do we do for sex, sir?" "I understand boy. No need to worry there. Come here, I'll show you something. You see that barrel over there?" "Yea." "From Wednesday to Monday anytime you want you just stick your dick in the hole and get and BJ." "Really! Cool. Alright then. Ohh..umm, you said Wednesday through Monday? Well why not Tuesday?" "Because that's your day in the barrel"

    An absolutely stunning 23 year old girl desperately wanted to be rich.....but she certainly didn't want to have to work. She didn't like the thought of marrying a rich guy, because it would only put a damper on all her party action. After a lot of thought, she decided her best bet was to marry some really old rich guy so that her departure from the party scene would be brief. After a good deal of searching, she set her sights on a west Texas oilman/rancher who was pushing 90 years of age. After wooing the man with all she had, they were married. He flew her to Manhattan for the honeymoon, taking her to the fanciest suite in the best hotel in town. After getting to their room, the old man wandered into the bathroom. The girl draped herself in the sexiest teddy she had and stretched out on the bed thinking how after only one night, she was bound to be a very rich widow. Presently the old man walked out of the bathroom sporting the most enormous erection the girl had ever seen, and it was sheathed in a condom. The old man had wads of cotton stuffed in both ears and a clothespin on his nose. Jumping off the bed, the girl asked "Why the hell do you look like that?"..... The old man chuckled and said "Darlin', there are two things in this world that I just can't stand.....the sound of a woman screaming and the smell of burning rubber".

    A 21 year old walks into a bar and yells "barkeep! Five shots. Line'em up". The barkeep lays out five shots and fills them with whiskey. The kid starts slamming the drinks one after another. When he gets to the fourth one, the barkeep covers the glass. "What are you celebrating? No one drinks like this unless they are celebrating!" The Kid gets a big smile and boasts "First Blowjob!" The bartender exclaims "Hells yeah! Now THAT is something to celebrate. Tell you what...an extra shot on the house." The kid waves his hand and says "Thanks, but that's not necessary, if the first five shots don't kill the taste, the sixth one won't either."

    There once was a little boy who was celebrating his 11th birthday. He decided to test his family to see if they remembered his birthday, so he goes downstairs to his father. "Bet cha' can't guess how old I am today", the boy said. The father has no clue and finally gives up. "I'm eleven!" the boy exclaims. Next he goes in the kitchen, walks up to his grandma, and says, "Bet cha' can't guess how old I am today". "Let me give it a guess", grandma says and sticks her hand in his trousers. She plays with his testicles for about an hour or so (squeezing them; moving them back and forth), takes her hand out of his trousers, and says, "You're eleven years old". "How did you know?" the boy asked. Grandma replied, "I heard you tell your father".

She raised him the best she knew how and he turned around and told the country what an ignorant bigot she was. Way to go, Barry. Toot should be so proud. Hell, she probably said she was voting for McCain and David Plouffe held a pillow over her face until she "Toot"ed her last horn. I thought every vote was supposed to count?

    To me he's Anchorite without a secondary education. It's the night before election day, McKKKain and Palin are ratcheting up the fear factor, their side's making desperate moves. I wouldn't expect much better from that side, to be frank. <P> If all they have is to denigrate the memory of a nice old lady who did right by a whole lot of people, then that just reflects the character of the persons they advocate for the highest office of the land. And after the dirtiest campaign in American history, we know them all too well.

You're intolerant sniveling little pussies who can't take it when someone doesn't hold the same opinion of what you hold in such reverence. In this case it's Barack Obama.

    ... but man, if that's not a banning offense, I've never seen one. <p> Not only is it mocking the dead, its racist, inflammatory, and just plain vile, the very definition of "hate speech". I've seen people banned from AICN for far less. <p> My take, judging by the lack of response to this completely unacceptable post, according to published AICN moderation policy, is that he might have some sort "pass" from the CoC guys, and possibly even an "in" with AICN staff, although it typically takes a while for the mods to react even when policy has clearly been violated. Been here off and on since 2001 and I've said scenario before. <p> I like the tolerance and restraint AICN shows in moderating this forum but some shit needs to be smacked down without mercy.

    They never banned me here, but when I got too vocal about my wife being Asian, and our offense to McCain saying "I hate the gooks", I came back the next day and half my posts were removed. Anytime I used the "G" word, the post no longer existed. And here I'm thinking; "the guy who wants to sit in the oval office can use the word, but I can't? Even in the context of complaining about the very nature of the racial slur??" i say my wife is Asian and i don't approve of the term "gook", and i get censored. McCain wants to lead our country, he says "i hate gooks" and it's cool? anyone who reads this, remember you read it. i won't be surprised to come back and find it missing.

But why do more people seem to read up on who she's dating than read up on what John McCain or Barack Obama plan for the country?

    Here is his statement which is far more nuanced than you give him credit for Snake. <p> "I can no more disown him [Wright] than I can disown the black community. I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.<p>These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love." <p> So your original post was out of line.

Wright as a divisive issue speaks very well for him. Using Wright would have split the country. It would have been an enormous racial wound if it had been exploited. I know that The RNC is using Wright in commercials in PA. But that is last minute and one state only. Think if they had given the Ayers treatment to Wright? Speeches, nationwide commercials, foxnews, etc. It may have backfired in any event, and perhaps it was a political decision as much as personal one. But he did not do it.

    There have been a number of people (black, white, and brown) talking or joking about how the black community is going to be celebrating Barack's election or rioting if McCain wins. Whether these people are being racist I will leave to someone else to discuss. <p> But SnakeForeskin's post was advocating that people don't riot. <p> As far as John McCain and the Muslim comment, it is definitely offensive but unintentionally so on his part. The sad fact is calling someone a Muslim nowadays is equivalent to character assassination. I was hoping either candidate would address this issue and say "So what if he is?" <p> There's not a goddamned thing wrong with being a Muslim. In fact, it would be ENTIRELY IN OUR BEST INTEREST to elect a Muslim. It would certainly take the wind out of the extremist's sails. They couldn't claim any more Zionist conspiracy shit.

    I disagree with you about Snakes intent.

Sorry Toad and Terry, we have to agree to disagree on this one. <P> John Gotti and Al Capone were never caught with blood on their hands, but you know a lot of shit was done with their blessing and direction. Perhaps - perhaps - I should be calling out RicKKK Davis and Nancy Pfucktenthehead more for the way the campaign and their surrogates were inciting race war (real Virginia, etc.), but all roads lead to McCain.

The ire raised against Obama if he made a similar remark would have sunk his presidency. <p> I'm not a McCain apologist, but I do think it's extreme to throw him in the KKK camp the same way it's extreme to call Obama a socialist. <p>

    1. "we just found out" What, you have direct knowledge of Obama's mental processes? You can mind-read? Fuck off idiot. <P> And who constitutes "we" - not you personally, of course, you're only capable of reporting hearsay, twisted for effect.<p> <p> 2. "a proven liar" - in 8 years on this site, I've never seen a stupider, more unjustifiably self-confident pinhead. Your notion of "proof" wouldn't satisfy a four year old. Your alleged "proofs" are distorted hearsay from right wing media outlets.<p> 3. You, on the other hand constantly mis-state facts, distort data and exaggerate opinions past the point of rhetoric. <p> Classic case in point: your lie that Obama "promised to bankrupt coal companies." <p> No sane person watching that film interview could have reached that conclusion. Obama said that penalties should be imposed on coal companies which breached emission controls, and if they continued to break the law, they would go bankrupt. You knew this but you lied about it.<p> 4. "friends with terrorists". Another obvious lie. He attended a fundraiser at the home of a man who had been, 40 years earlier, a terrorist. There is not the slightest shred of evidence that Ayers (who is not Obama's "friend") is now, or has been in the last 40 years, a terrorist. <p> There is not the slightest shred of evidence that Obama is "friends" with any current terrorist.<p> Being in a room with people you, in your stupidity characterise as "terrorists" is not evidence of anything.<p> That's just a lie you chose to tell because you are too dishonest, too stupid and too much of an ideologue to even consider sticking to the facts.<p> 5. You think Obama is a "socialist" - you don't even know what the word means. In the dozen or so countries with a higher standard of living than the US, most of which are unquestionably Socialist countries, Obama is regarded as a moderate Conservative. <p> Yes, you half-wit, he wouldn't be admitted to most governing parties in those countries - because he's a conservative.<p> 6. Haboring a fugitive illegal alien? You obviously don't have a clue about the meaning of the word "harboring". I do. My job is knowing the meaning of words like "proof" "evidence" "guilt" "lie" and, yes, "harboring". You're utterly clueless on all of those concepts.<p> Why don't you piss off, now.<p> You've managed to convert a few uncommitted conservatives to vote for Obama by your inane shrieking.<p> Your job is done.<p> So crawl away with your tail between your legs.

We know for a fact Obama lied about taking Presidential Campaign Matching Funds. We know for a fact that Obama was closer friends with Ayers than he originally said. We know for a fact Obama quotes Karl Marx and has said he befriended "Marxist Professors". The fact that you freely admit here that you would want to live in a socialist country becuase they have a higher standard of living than the US, well, that just means your Communist College Professors have failed you. People for over a century have been fleeing Socialist Countries to come to the US. I want you to name specifically which countries you say have a "higher standard of living" than the US and explain to me why you choose to live here instead of those "socialist utopias". As far a his aunt, Obama's chief of staff admitted that they knew that his aunt was here illegally and ordered deported. OK, Obama wasn't hiding her in his house. Nice defense! You really are funny. You care nothing about facts, you care nothing about ALL of the shady people in Obama's past. You care nothing about Obama's treatment of his starving family. You don't care that he went to a racist, anti-American church for 20 years. You don't care he was friend's with two attempted mass-murderers. OK. Just admit it doesn't matter. Don't try to pretend he's not who he is. He is nothing special. He's just a typical politician. He's had radical associations in his past.

    Oh, and there are reports coming in that voting machines

    by Coughlins Laws

    in Philadelphia were loaded with thousands of Obama votes before the polls even opened. A liberal judge oredered that 4 Republicans Election Workers removed because they were from the "minority party". So, in certain precincts in Pennsylvania, where there is ZERO Republican oversight, machines are being pre-loaded with Obama votes. Are you OK with this?

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 7:50 a.m. CST

    Listen Lost Jarv, you didn't see the video, obviously

    by Coughlins Laws

    Do you want me to link you to the video? Obama said, IN HIS OWN WORDS, "If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It's just it'll bankrupt them..." because of all his punitive green-house taxes. There's no other way to look at it. A coal company can not exist if they don't buil new plants. Tell me how else to look at this?

    by Coughlins Laws

    to bankrupt coal companies, even though he admitted he will. I know this issue is complex and you probably don't understand it, but explain why the thousands and thousands of coal workers in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia who Obama has promised to put out of work should vote for him. Is this issue to complex for you? I won't accept you saying, "read what he said". In your own words, little boy, explain why I'm wrong?

He did not say those words you quoted, you pathetic liar. Look at the video. Get a 4 year old child to explain the tricky bits.<p> 2. Your typical gross exaggeration "Every coal company has come out against him" is, as usual false.<p> A number of coal companies, shit-scared that they might have to reduce profits to their wealthy shareholders by acting responsibly, according to modern emission controls, have grumbled - for blindingly obvious commercial reasons.<p> Name 3 companies which have "come out against" Obama's candidacy. <p> I'll be here waiting.<p> 3. "we know for a fact Obama lied about taking PCM funds."<p> Excuse me, dickhead? "We know"? You mean "I would like to think, contrary to all the evidence" that Obama was untruthful.<p> Are you completely demented? If there was such proof, the whole of the media would be on the story and Obama would have been indicted.<p> I'm sure you don't have a fucking clue about the obligations to investigate known breaches of Federal Law imposed on a variety of Federal office-bearers, but it's bleedingly obvious that the Republican administration would have pursued provable dishonesty in microseconds.<p> 4. "Quotes Karl Marx" - wow! That proves for sure that he's a Communist, right? 5. I "would want to live in a socialist country" - You moron, I LIVE IN A FRICKING SOCIALIST COUNTRY and it's doing just fine. And if you think that Law School Professors are Communists, you're living in dreamland. Law is the most conservative profession here, just like most countries. I was taught by Conservatives, who did not fail me - they just taught me how to think critically.<p> 6. I don't care about any of those alleged misdeeds of Obama because, frankly, they are a bunch of ridiculous exaggerations of trivial events which, you, in utter desperation, have seized upon and pumped up to preposterous proportions.<p> So yeah .. just like roughly 70 million US citizens, I DON"T GIVE A BLUE ROOT about that nonsense.<p> GOT IT!!!!!<p> 7. "Attempted Mass Murderers" ... you are utterly incapable of providing ONE SCRAP of evidence that Obama (a) was or is (b) a friend (you know what "friend" means?) (c) with any person who Attempted (that is, unsuccessfully or incompletely implemented) (d) conduct which (e) could have led to the murder of (e) ANY individual.<p> That is what you have to prove to make good your puerile allegation. <p> You can't do it, because the full resources of the Rove-trained Dirty Tricks Arm of the RNC tried and failed. <p> 8. He's the most promising candidate the US has had in decades. He's not an opportunist, he's a guy who distinguished himself at Harvard and instead of walking into a million dollar job in a NY firm, put a great deal of work back into a community which the Republican Administration regarded as beneath contempt.<p> So, unfortunately for you, that PROVES he's about 10 times more genuine than most other candidates anyone can name.<p> And frankly, unlike many posters here, I happen to regard McCain as a genuine guy and a very meritorious candidate - it's just that it's hard for him to look impressive next to Obama.<p> Particularly with the 10 Billion Ton anchor - the republican heritage of the last 8 years - chained to his ankles.<p> <p> Are we clear?<p> Your Dementia-Fu fails again!

    by Lost Jarv

    Hardly, I had a bit of work to do. I'm back now. <P>1)Of course I have a job, dickhead, else how would I live? But you're right. I don't pay income tax to the US government. Seeing as I live and work in the UK. My wife, on the other hand, who has income from America, does pay US taxes. However, said job means that I don't have time to respond every 3 minutes to your latest outporing of stupidity. I do try to keep up though.<P>2)What you are grossly overextrapolating is that the plants you refer to are those that grossly excede emissions levels. This is not bankrupting every new coal plant. Why do you keep overinflating what is a very valid point? As soon as you start with the laughable and easily squashable hyperbole, you actually diminish one of your better arguments. Stick to the facts (and I mean facts, not facts distorted by some fatuous right wing kaleidascope effect) as they do help you in this case. <P>3)"why the thousands and thousands of coal workers in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia who Obama has promised to put out of work should vote for him". This is exactly a case in point. <P>He has not said he is going to make all these people redundant. This is palpably untrue. He hasn't even said that he'll stop the creation of new jobs. What you are (again) extrapolating is that the green tax will prevent the creation of new jobs. This is uncertain, to begin with, and furthermore is not the same thing as forcing redundancy on X-Thousand American workers. <P>See the difference? However, I will concede, that if your interpretation were the correct one, (which I'm far from granting) then unless they agree on other issues, these people are not best served voting for him. <P>4)Have you not learnt your lesson on challenging others to Prove their intelligence? It just makes you look colossally stupid. <p>5) What's a casualty?

    Rove predicts Obama landslide

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    (CNN) – John McCain and his aides are still banking on a come-from-behind victory Tuesday, but the GOP's most famous political strategist has already called the race for Barack Obama. <p> Karl Rove, the man widely credited with engineering President Bush's two successful White House bids, is predicting the Illinois senator will take the White House in an Electoral College landslide, winning 338 votes to John McCain's 200. That would be the largest Electoral College victory since 1996, when Bill Clinton defeated Bob Dole in a 379-159 rout.

    coal plants

    by Iceman32_89

    <p>it was mentioned earlier about Obama and the coal plants and how the evil democrat socialist wants to bankrupt them.for those who actually seek out the truth instead of listening to Sarah Palin's talking points would know that Obama does not want to bankrupt the coal industry here is the whole obama quote:</p>"I voted against the Clear Skies Bill. In fact, I was the deciding vote. Despite the fact that I'm a coal state. And that half my state thought that I had thoroughly betrayed them. Because I think clean air is critical and global warming is critical. But this notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion. Because the fact of the matter is is that right now we are getting a lot of our energy from coal. And China is building a coal-powered plant once a week. So what we have to do then is figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon. And how can we sequester that carbon and capture it. If we can't, then we're gonna still be working on alternatives. "But...[NOTE: here's where the Western Business Roundtable picked up the text.] let me sort of describe my overall policy. What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade policy in place that is as aggressive if not more aggressive than anyone out there. I was the first call for 100% auction on the cap and trade system. Which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases that was emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants are being built, they would have to meet the rigors of that market. And the ratcheted down caps that are imposed every year. So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted. That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel, and other alternative energy approaches. The only thing that I've said with respect to coal--I haven't been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter, as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it. That I think is the right approach. The same with respect to nuclear. Right now, we don't know how to store nuclear waste wisely and we don't know how to deal with some of the safety issues that remain. And so it's wildly expensive to pursue nuclear energy. But I tell you what, if we could figure out how to store it safely, then I think most of us would say that might be a pretty good deal. The point is, if we set rigorous standards for the allowable emissions, then we can allow the market to determine and technology and entrepreneurs to pursue, what the best approach is to take, as opposed to us saying at the outset, here are the winners that we're picking and maybe we pick wrong and maybe we pick right."

    Did you see Stewart's bit on that last night? All Obama said was that if the coal industry continues to build TRADITIONAL coal plants it will put them out of business because of the penalty for greenhouse gas emissions, and thereby force them to invest in clean coal technology instead. As opposed to the McCain ammendment that will put coal completely out of business because of fuel-switching to natural gas.

    by toadkillerdog

    You have to look at the big picture. The comments were stupid because he admitted that he would slap huge penalties on any new startup coal plants - thus the 'bankrupt' em. That played well with greens, but not with coal states. Also, consider this: Coal is Americas greatest energy asset, and any move towards more electrical cars or use of electrical energy in general, will not come from renewable energy such as solar or wind, at least not in the near future because both of those resources require huge amounts of land - and investment, to return energy, but from coal. Limiting coal production, while calling for more electricity usage will do one thing - raise prices across the entire country, not just in coal producing states. It was a stupid thing to say. <p> I agree that new coal plants should be charged for the greenhouse gases they inject, but not to the point that it will bankrupt them. We need that resource.

I need to go vote for Obama!<p> Did you see the AP story about how "The World" is hoping for a less arrogant America and therefore an Obama win?<p> Here's the article. Sorry if it makes my pst really long.<p> BERLIN - The world was riveted by the election drama unfolding Tuesday in the United States, inspired by Barack Obama or simply relieved that - whoever wins - the Bush administration was coming to an end.<p> From Berlin's Brandenburg Gate to the small town of Obama, Japan, the globe geared up to celebrate a fresh start for America.<p> In Germany, where more than 200,000 flocked to see Obama this summer as he moved to burnish his foreign policy credentials during a trip to the Middle East and Europe, the election dominated television ticker crawls, newspaper headlines and Web sites.<p> Hundreds of thousands prepared to party through the night to watch the outcome of an election having an impact far beyond America's shores. Among the more irreverent festivities planned in Paris: a "Goodbye George" party to bid farewell to Bush.<p> "Like many French people, I would like Obama to win because it would really be a sign of change," said Vanessa Doubine, shopping Tuesday on the Champs-Elysees. "I deeply hope for America's image that it will be Obama."<p> Europeans had a sense of the momentous change that was about to unfold, whether the winner was Obama or Republican John McCain.<p> "America is electing a new president, but for the Germans, for Europeans, it is electing the next world leader," said Alexander Rahr, director of the German Council on Foreign Relations.<p> "We see new challenges coming up, not only Islamic extremism, but a newly resurgent Russia, China, India, Pakistan, North Korea - everywhere there are fires," he said. "And we, as Europeans, can't solve these problems without America. A world without American leadership is, for most Europeans, a world of chaos."<p> Germany's mass-circulation daily Bild lionized the Republican as "the War Hero" and running mate Sarah Palin as "the Beautiful Unknown."<p> In Berlin, Republicans Abroad organized a "November Surprise Election Party" to watch live "how the Republican ticket McCain/Palin comes from behind and leaves the 'liberal elite media' in Europe and the United States puzzled."<p> In much of the Islamic world, Muslims expressed hope that the U.S. would seek compromise rather than confrontation.<p> The Bush administration alienated Muslims by mistreating prisoners at its detention center for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and inmates at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison - human rights violations also condemned worldwide.<p> "I hope Obama wins (because) of the need of the world to see the U.S. represent a more cosmopolitan or universal political attitude," said Rais Yatim, the foreign minister of mostly Muslim Malaysia.<p> Afghan President Hamid Karzai pledged that Afghanistan "will remain a close friend of the United States" regardless of who wins.<p> "The new president will have an impact on the economic and political situation in my country," said Muhammad al-Thaheri, 48, a civil servant in Saudi Arabia.

"It's a sort of pardon of America for its slave past," said Alain Barret, a bank teller in Paris. "It lets America turn an important page in its history."<p> "It would be fantastic to have a non-white president," added Letisha Brown, a Londoner.<p> In Baghdad, a jaded Mohammed al-Tamimi said he didn't think U.S. policy on Iraq would change. Even so, "we hope that the new American president will open a new page with our country."<p> Kenyans made their allegiance clear: Scores packed churches on Tuesday to pray for Obama, whose late father was born in the East African nation, and hailed the candidate - himself born in Hawaii - as a "son of the soil."<p> "Tonight we are not going to sleep," said Valentine Wambi, 23, a student at the University of Nairobi. "It will be celebrations throughout."<p> Kenyans believe an Obama victory wouldn't change their lives much, but that hasn't stopped them from splashing his picture on minibuses and selling T-shirts with his name and likeness. Kenyans were planning to gather around radios and TV sets starting Tuesday night as the results come in.<p> In the sleepy Japanese coastal town of Obama - which translates as "little beach" - images of him adorned banners along a main shopping street, and preparations for an election day victory party were in full swing.<p> Election fever also ran high in Vietnam, where McCain was held as a prisoner of war for more than five years after being shot down in Hanoi during a 1967 bombing run.<p> "He's patriotic," said Le Lan Anh, a Vietnamese novelist and real estate tycoon. "As a soldier, he came here to destroy my country, but I admire his dignity."<p> ---<p> Kole reported from Vienna, Austria. AP correspondents worldwide contributed."<p> First, I hate that they say "The World". Like it's a guy on the street they approached for his opinion. It just sounds dumb. <p> Now I can't say I disagree with needing a change of leadership that will help foster better relations with other countries. But man, that had to be one of, if not the most, one sided, biased and unfair articles I have ever read by what's supposed to be an objective journalist.<p> I'm pissed off that the field of journalism has become so damned biased and opinionated. It isn't what being a journalist is supposed to be. There are too many people out there calling themselves journalists that are really activists.<p> Sometimes it's important to just report facts as facts without injecting your own damn opinion or point of view!<p> That article was embarrassingly biased and was a perfect example of POV reporting, which is basically nothing more than an op-ed piece. They used to confine op-eds to one story, not the whole damn paper!<p> What do you guys think? Am I wrong?

    by Snake Foreskin

    It was tactically stupid and ignorant of the way things work.<p> We need coal because to shut it down without having a viable source or sources of alternative fuel would leave us seriously without an adequate energy supply.<p> Another thing I don't get: If Obama is so influenced by how Europeans do things, why not follow the French model of nuclear power? They get like 80% of their power from nuclear reactors. They are a much smaller country than us, so how are they storing the waste? Just see how they're doing it and see if we can do it here.<p> I know there's a big feeling of "Not in my backyard!" but that could be said of ANY energy source. Do you really want a Wind Farm blocking your view of a beautiful sunset?<p> We are going to keep growing as a country and we need a lot more energy sources and transmission and storage facilities to be built sooner rather than later. It is a problem that isn't just going to go away if we ignore it. It won't cost Obama a lot of votes and he'll still win, but he made a huge mistake in playing to the crowd like that.

    The problem with nuclear.

    by HoboCode

    TRANSPORT. Which due to the government wanting all waste stored at Yucca would be necessary. Plants can store their own waste for hundreds of years while the government works out viable means of recyclying most of the material. But becasue of the perceived security risk the government wants it all stored at Yucca and that requires transporting hazardous nuclear waste across the country by rail and truck. Not good. In case you've been living in a cave our rail system is antiquated and dangerous. And do you want nuclear waste being hauled on the turnpike next to you? Accidents happen. I know. I work for a chemical and hazmat emergency calling center and we average hundreds of incidents a day involving transport of dangerous materials.

We have let it get out of hand. Government is far too big as it is.<p> That's a big reason why I have a problem with Obama. It's a difference of mindset. I don't think Americans should rely on government to take care of our problems. Obama seems like he wants Americans to "sit back and relax and leave the driving to us!" It's just wrong.<p> The only thing I would allow as far as domestic "spying" goes is if we have other evidence of illegal activities going on. If someone is undergoing investigation of money laundering or funding of terror groups or something, then wire taps and other forms of surveillance might be justified. But fishing expeditions should not be allowed. That's an abuse of power.

They aren't quaint little windmills like you see in Holland. They're hundreds of feet tall and there are always dozens of them. Hell, I hate seeing all the power lines and power stations strewn all about the city.<p> Anyway, my point was that no matter what the type, any energy production facilities are going to make people say, "Not in my backyard!" But they still need to be built. Nuclear seems to have the potential for producing great amounts of electricity in fairly clean and reliable plants. I know it sucks to have one sitting on your horizon. But it would suck just as much to have a big power station there, a coal plant, a bunch of wind turbines or any other large structure.

I, Barack Obama, must be hated by people in Berlin. There’s no more Victory Column great extravaganzas for me. There’s no more fawning interviews with Der Spiegel. It’s going to be hatred from those people. I’m going to be a unilateralist pre-empter, and I’m going to do that, and all the people in the Muslim world and the Arab world that love me and fawn over me are going to hate me as worse than you know what. Okay, I’m willing to do that for a principle."<p> Do you think he’s going to be willing to do that, or John McCain? I’m sorry, but I don’t think that all of that cheap rhetoric about invading Pakistan and a game-changer in Iran is anything other than rhetoric, because I think the problem with Obama is he’s bought into the idea of Vero Possumus, the new presidential seal that he’s promulgating, that the seas are going to cease to rise, that the planet won’t heat up, this is the change that we’ve been waiting for. And he really believe in this Messianic sense that people love him for himself. And he’s not going to be willing to give up that easily.

Let me clarify, because you seem a bit dim, any politician, from any party, who is paralyzed from acting because he fears what half of the people will think about him - the half who did not vote for him (let alone people in a foreign country)any politician who was so paralyzed, would never run for office because he would be afraid - not of his own constituents, but of the people who did not vote for him who would not like him.

    I DON'T THINK HEF WOULD GIVE HER THE SPREAD

    by BringingSexyBack

    She might spread 'em for Guns and Ammo, though.

    Danny, wishful thinking

    by toadkillerdog

    Palin, like her or not, is a superstar in the Republican party. She has already indicated she will not go away, regardless the outcome. The stories that came out about infighting between her and McCains camp came from Mitt Romney loyalists working for McCain. They know they have to undermine her now, and for the next four years, if they have any hope of resting conyrol. She has frightened the hell out of republicans, because she is a genuine star of the conservative movement.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 2:57 p.m. CST

    Nah.

    by Half-Baked-Goggle-Box-Do-Gooder

    Palin will become a FoxNews commentator. I'd bet the rent on it.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:01 p.m. CST

    Okay, fess up. Who opened up a new ID called McGooCain?

    by Snake Foreskin

    I'm guessing Skyway Moaters since he's obsessed with me. I could be wrong though. Anyway, the "joke" was a poor one, but I would never read that post and then go crying to Mommy to ban whoever wrote it. If you are so infantile as to feel vindicated by writing gibberish, write it all damn day. Whatever makes you feel special. Just know it isn't witty, just annoying.

    I CAN'T WAIT FOR NICHOLLE WALLACE'S TELL-ALL ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

    by BringingSexyBack

    She was the McKKKain aide in the middle of the Clothinggate scandal. She may very well be the one who called Palin a whackjob, too. <P> This is gonna be juicy!!!!!!!

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:02 p.m. CST

    UM, MCGOOCAIN'S BEEN AROUND FOR A WHILE

    by BringingSexyBack

    I've seen him in other poli-talkbacks.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:07 p.m. CST

    Palin was fully cleared in the ethics investigation!

    by Snake Foreskin

    You haven't heard one story about that. Not that it really matters. Except now she can go back to Alaska and serve as Governor for a few more years.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:08 p.m. CST

    Depends on how you define safe Snake...

    by Skyway Moaters

    I haven't calmed down one bit, and will continue to lobby to get your slimy bigoted mullet-topped carcass banned until you are, or until I get banned myself for trying, you disgusting scum bag.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:14 p.m. CST

    Palin has no chance against anyone.....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    Romney would destroy her in a primary. And if he didn't run and she was able to get in for the Republican nominee-- it would be pretty easy for Hilary to take her out in 2012. Palin is a very divisive figure. Look at her poll numbers. I think she would do far worse than McCain.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:14 p.m. CST

    See, that's crazy talk!

    by Snake Foreskin

    You are mentally unstable for being so damn obsessed, Skyway. Why are you so full of hate for me? You need to learn to get along with others, weirdo. I bet we'll hear about you on the evening news in a couple of weeks.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:17 p.m. CST

    SHE WAS CLEARED BY THE PERSONNEL BOARD

    by BringingSexyBack

    Big deal. This in no way exonerates her, and she will face some very rough road ahead in Alaskan politics. She even threw Ted Stevens under the bus last week. I think she will fade into the wilderness, only to surface for periodic battles against witchcraft.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:18 p.m. CST

    Snake Foreskin -- are you Coughlins?

    Seriously? You play the victim just like him.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:19 p.m. CST

    Why would Hasselbeck want to be on The View?

    by Snake Foreskin

    She is surrounded by ugly women who hate her. I bet the only reason she stays there is that she's the pretty one. If they brought on a pretty young liberal, Elisabeth would probably quit the show. Good news for her is she'd probably be welcomed with open arms at Fox News. Maybe she could have a show with Sarah Palin.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:20 p.m. CST

    Snake Foreskin -- I'm pretty sure you are Coughlins....

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    The more I look at your posts....the more you sound exactly like him.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:20 p.m. CST

    Play the victim? Who you kidding?

    by Snake Foreskin

    I just don't appreciate being threatened with banning every other post fom this guy. I think it's weird as hell. Don't you?

    Too much talk about being banned

    by WerePlatypus

    Might give one pause to consider that said poster was once banned under another name. . .

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:27 p.m. CST

    I think the silence confirms it. SNAKE = COUGHLINS!

    The embargo is on!! Ignore this fucker!!

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:27 p.m. CST

    Ted Stevens deserved to be thrown under the bus!

    by Snake Foreskin

    Unlike Obama's grandma, who just tried to raise him right.<p> Ted Stevens is a scumbag who took money for political favors. If she hadn't thrown him under the bus it would have been worse for her.<p> That said, I'm glad Palin won't be VP. I couldn't stand seeing her wink at me during a tie-breaker on CSPAN. The good news about this election is that Congress will be so one-sided, there probably won't be any ties to break.<p> And if Joe Biden has another aneurysm, he'll be even funnier to watch on the highlight reels. I swear, he's one awkward moment away from being diagnosed with Tourette's.

    Jesus Christ! I'm not Coughlins! You're crazy!

    by Snake Foreskin

    I know you're just yankin' my wank, but please stop. I skip over every damn post he writes. He's a bore. If I'm that bad, I may join HoboCode in immolating myself on the White House lawn. Of course I'll be alone because Hobo was only going to do that if McCain won and we know that ain't happenin!

    Palin is done if they lose

    by Hawaiian Organ Donor

    I don't think you guys are taking her lack of a medical history seriously enough. And if you think some intrepid reporter won't be able to do some digging and come up with the truth then you don't give enough credit to the press.<p>Between the dirt her campaign handlers will have and what is sure to be a bomb hiding in her medical records, Palin is done. Believe me.

  • Nov. 4, 2008, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Uh, I'm not throwing the ban threat around!

    Skyway Moaters was. Amazing how this gets all twisted into some surreal episode of The Twilight Zone and I am accused of being other posters and throwing around the ban threat. Damn, you are a bunch of pussified freakaloos!

    All of you guys defending coal

    by Skyway Moaters

    ... fired electricity generation are so woefully ignorant about climate change that it would be laughable if such a mindset wasn't so dangerous to all life on the planet. There's no such thing as "clean coal": http://tinyurl.com/5rtr74 <p> Get this straight you nihilistic dipshits: If the entire human race doesn't make a RADICAL shift away from carbon emitting fossil fuel power generation very, very soon this place is toast. The entire biosphere could begin to collapse in as little as 50 years, extinctions on an apocalyptic scale. This is not a matter of opinion. The world’s environmental science community is in nearly unanimous agreement about the knife edge on which the planet is poised. The only real differences amount to little more than semantic details. The "deep marine layer" is already in trouble, (where the oxygen comes from boys): http://tinyurl.com/66h8yt <p> If we don’t all wake up and wean ourselves off our addiction to fossil fuels, and I mean like YESTERDAY, never mind that they are finite resource and we’re going to run out anyway, (assuming there’s anyone left around to burn the stuff), will render this planet a lifeless rock. You guys are like the proverbial toad continuing to sit in the saucepan as the water begins to boil…

    by DANNYGLOVERS_DICKBLOOD

    ...when Obama is announced the winner tonight at 11:48 PM, that he will lunge in the air flinging his arms back and forth like a furious 9 year old, until they crack back into place. And then there will be a moment of solace when he realizes for the first time in over 30 years he can lift his arms straight up above his head!! HOLY SHIT!! HOLY FUCKING SHIT!! He'll be giggling as he jumps up and down before hitting the floor and slumping over on his side with open eyes.....dead from a massive heart attack at 72 years of age, on November 4th, 2008........
