Political Fun for 10 Oct 2008

The Palins’ un-American Activities | Since Sarah Palin is pounding so hard on Sen. Obama regarding his weak link connection to Bill Ayers, Salon’s David Talbot hits back with some great points. If you read some of the statements of the founder of the Alaska Independence Party, of which her husband was an active member for years, you’d be a bit shocked: “My government is my worst enemy. I’m going to fight them with any means at hand.” So who’s the anti-government terrorist now?

McCain Loses His Head | Conservative commentator George Will calls out and rips McCain on his recent campaign activities calling him disconnected.

Global Electoral College | The Economist combines polls taken worldwide to see who would be President if the world could vote. It’s a decidedly blue map.

Ciny McCain Says Obama Runing ‘Dirtiest Campaign’ Ever | Yeah. I’m not sure what planet the Senator’s wife is living on, but I have three words: Pot. Kettle. Black.

‘Perfect Storm’ Could Give Dems ‘Magic 60’ in Senate | I’m not sure this would be good, as I think consensus building generally makes for better long term laws. However, after the disasterous years of the Republican Control of the White House and Capitol Hill, we’ve got a lot of crap to undo.

Walking a Fine Line | McCain did come out and try to push this back on Friday, but they should never have let it get this far out of control.

So we have McCain today getting his crowd riled up asking who Barack Obama is and then apparently giving a wink and a nod when one member of the crowd screams out “terrorist.”

And later we have Sarah Palin with the same mob racket, getting members of the crowd to yell out “kill him”, though it’s not clear whether the call for murder was for Bill Ayers or Barack Obama. It didn’t seem to matter.

These are dangerous and sick people, McCain and Palin. Whatever it takes. Stop at nothing.

Garabage Pail Kid version of Sarah Palin | This is just funny. I’d actually like to see someone do all four candidates up this way.

Make Believe Maverick | A relatively biased (especially in the tone of the writer) view of McCain. Strip away the hype and take it for the facts and it’s pretty interesting in regards to the underpinnings of McCain.

    re: Economist global map.
    Thank you for linking. This is perhaps the best demonstration of the difference between those who understand what the United States is about and those who do not. One wouldn't expect those with no experience being United States citizens to get it right, and in fact they don't. Just as one wouldn't expect citizens who despise their country to get it right either.
    Dark times ahead, indeed...

    .I'm stuck wondering what it is, other than sdiuenpsng the Constitution, that would cause all the Senate and Congress to have to be recalled.If it's the money then it's bigger than we know and closer to collapsing than is being said. If it's another piece of the pie that requires them all, what could it be?McCain looked scared when making the statement that he would suspend his campaign and Obama flip-flopped a little too fast and his tone changed. Bush looks like he hasn't slept in days. Something big is coming down the pipe and it ain't water.You almost have to wonder if a foreign country is going to add to the problem or already has.C-
