|Sep-18-08|| ||Riverbeast: Another Republican mental giant...They just seem to crank them out|
|Sep-18-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Speaking of which, did you see Palin's interview with Sean Hannity (no Colmes), where she defended McCain's comments on the "fundamentals" of the economy by referring to the "verbage" several times.|
Apparently she was trying to say "verbiage."
|Sep-18-08|| ||FSR: Palin's college degree is in Communications, mind you. Too bad they never taught her how to say "verbiage."|
|Sep-18-08|| ||jovack: republicans fail so hard
obama is better than mccain by far, but the democrats are no better than the republicans
americans, vote for the green party
|Sep-19-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Democrats fall well short of perfect, but considering the alternative the choice is clear. I get your point, but a vote for the greens or any third party is purely symbolic. |
IMO the best strategy is to fight inside the Democratic party, supporting the Feingolds, Franks, Waxmans, etc., as well as independent senator Bernie Sanders.
|Sep-19-08|| ||drpoundsign: got "Legally Blonde" on tape. "Malibu Barbie." LOL Pallin birthed a mongoloid baby. should used a coat hanger. No wonder there's too much entitlements. I wanted Hillary b/c she can WIN..Florida and maybe some other southern states. Obama could be the African American McGovern and McCain is just plain scary!|
|Sep-19-08|| ||drpoundsign: women can equal us in most Mental games. Bobby Riggs Billy Jean was symbolic only b/c he was already OLD. I'm surprised the WIlliams sisters cannot beat low ranked men. They are too good for most white girls so do not fit in there either.|
|Sep-19-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Against my better judgment, I'm going to respond, dr: Who cares if Palin had a baby with Down Syndrome? It's a private matter (though I wish Palin would respect the privacy of other women to make their own choices).|
And McGovern was the best presidential candidate of the past fifty years. Not the most electable, but would have been the best president. A fine man.
|Sep-19-08|| ||Riverbeast: <Obama could be the African American McGovern>|
First time I've heard that one....Bill Maher said he was 'a tan Kennedy'
|Sep-19-08|| ||GeauxCool: I just read about the baseball statistician running numbers for politicians, http://www.newsweek.com/id/140469 and who is offering a Groundhog-view of both parties' Grassroots campaigns, with the most accurate polls and predictions yet uncovered:|
<Republicans take in out-of-staters too. Busloads of BYU students as well as volunteers from Oregon and Phoenix will come pouring into the state for the final early voting push --- Obama is in a stronger position now than he was immediately before the conventions. We now have him winning the election 71.5 percent of the time, which is about as high as that number has been all year.>
|Sep-19-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Meanwhile, the Michigan Republican party, aided by the McCain campaign, is trying to boot all the people who lost their homes in the mortgage crisis off the voting roles. They don't live in the houses, so they can't vote!|
Of course it's totally irrelevant to them that people who have lost their homes might want a change in the people running things.
|Sep-20-08|| ||blacksburg: <Of course it's totally irrelevant to them that people who have lost their homes might want a change in the people running things.>|
on the contrary, i'd bet they consider it VERY relevant. and they're gonna do everything they can to stop it from happening.
|Sep-20-08|| ||GeauxCool: <>I'm sure it's all a ploy by the GOP to confuse the Michigan voters<>|
<McCAIN>: Will those of you who are not members of the Republican Party cast your ballots into the garbage chute immediately after you arrive, before you write your congressman, if you've just lost the mortgage on your home, unless you've got a younger brother who is going out this weekend as the guest of another homeless voter, in which case, collect his ballot before lunch, put it in your letter after you've lost the mortgage, and make sure he casts your ballot into the garbage chute for you. Now,--
<McCAIN>: Yes, Wymer?
<WYMER>: My younger brother's going out with Dibble this weekend, sir, but I havenít lost my mortgage yet, sir.
<WYMER>: So, do I cast my ballot into the garbage chute, or--
<McCAIN>: I do wish you'd listen, Wymer. It's perfectly simple. If you're not mortgaging your home, you don't have to move your brother's ballot into the garbage chute. You simply collect his ballot before lunch, after you've done your scripture prep, when you've written your letter, before rest, move your own ballot into the garbage chute, greet the visitors, and report to Mr. Viney that you've had your chad signed. Now, sexist. Sexist, sexist, sexist. Where were we? [sniff] Well, had I got as far as the Palin entering the Virginia? [sniff]
|Sep-20-08|| ||Jim Bartle: John McCain, a couple of months ago: "Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation."|
Sounds like really good news for the funeral industry.
|Sep-20-08|| ||GeauxCool: But I thought his plan was to stop all that coffin.
|Sep-28-08|| ||GeauxCool: <Couric: Why isn't it better, Governor Palin, to spend 700 billion dollars helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas, and groceries, allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy rather than helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?|
<Palin: That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. Um, helping, oh, it's got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade ó we have, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today. We've got to look at that as more opportunity. All of those things under the umbrella of job creation, this bailout is a part of that<.>>>
"But...she is a very quick study." Laura Bush.
|Sep-28-08|| ||Jim Bartle: You must be confused, GC. That was Tina Fey's answer in the Saturday Night Live satire.|
|Sep-28-08|| ||GeauxCool: Yeah, it was amazing how her own words fit right into the skit, and NOBODY laughed. |
Posterity: SNL Video
|Sep-28-08|| ||Calli: Tina Fey for VEEP! 10 times smarter and the press conferences would be the highest rated in history. Obama missed the boat on that one.|
|Sep-29-08|| ||missing kasparov: jim bartle I read your post here for sept 19 I got to say I LIKE THE WAY YOU THINK.|
|Sep-29-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Calli: Actually we could have a co-vice-presidency. The VP would make an appearance, only you'd never know if it was Palin or Fey. Sort of like that movie "Dave| with Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver.|
|Sep-29-08|| ||Calli: Kevin Kline for POTUS! He's smarter than McCain and was never a POW. Cmon Republicans Kline/Fey would glide into the White House.|
|Sep-30-08|| ||GeauxCool: This.
"Let Palin be Palin"
"Let Olive be Olive"
|Oct-02-08|| ||GeauxCool: <Olive (untrained in beauty pageant conventions) is a mere amateur by comparison. As Olive's turn to perform in the talent portion of the pageant draws near, Richard and Dwayne recognize that Olive is certain to be humiliated, and run to the dressing room to talk her out of performing. Sheryl, however, insists that they "let Olive be Olive", and Olive goes on stage.>|
