Update On: Bitch, Bitch, Bitch– Oh, And it’s Good.

leave a comment »

Couple days ago we talked about how McCain’s camp was crying their eyes out over accurate reporting by the New York Times, by claiming it wasn’t even a “journalistic organization.” (See: here.)

Well, turns out it is a journalistic organization after all— and McCain’s not going to like it any better. The original piece that prompted the McCain camp tantrum was about campaign manager Rick Davis’ ties to Freddie Mac as a lobbyist. (You know McCain’s team is run by lobbyists, right?)

Outraged and shocked by the factual article examining Davis’ ties to Freddie prompted this outburst by McCain himself:

“My campaign manager has stopped that, has had nothing to do with it since and I’ll be glad to have his record examined by anybody who wants to look at it.”

Turns out that was just a lie.

Being journalists, the NYT looked into McCain’s claim, and guess what? Davis’ firm was being paid by Freddie Mac right through last month— to the tune of $15,000 a month! (How much do you make a month?) I wonder, what’s Freddie get for their monthly  $15k deposit to McCain’s campaign manager?

Bitch, Bitch, Bitch

with one comment

Big time war hero and his “pitbull” sidekick are doing what all war heroes and pitbulls do, crying like little bitches. (Wait, something’s wrong here. Can you tell what it is?).

Anyhow, the war hero and the pitbull, who are going to follow Osama Bin Laden to the gates of hell (but not to Pakistan, which is kinda the same thing) are crying like little girls today that the New York Times is a “pro-Obama advocacy organization.”

Oh and yeah, apparently the New York Times is “not”, as far as McCain-World is concerned ” a journalistic organization.” Which I’m sure comes as news to the hundreds of journalists who work there.

Seems the NYT is incurring the wrath of the cry-baby campaign because it has the nerve to— gasp!— tell the truth. Not very “journalistic” of them at all. Truth telling! Where the fuck do these assholes get off!

Good God! McCain Even Lying About the Size of His Crowds

leave a comment »

No doubting that since Tall-Tale-Sarah joined Grandpa Simpson in his quest to dupe the American people into four more years of GOP bullshit, the size of the crowds turning out to see him have swelled.

I always attributed this phenomenon to the old axiom that “you’ll never go broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.”  Turns out there’s another answer afoot: they’re lying!

From Bloomberg:

McCain aide Kimmie Lipscomb told reporters on Sept. 10 that an outdoor rally in Fairfax City, Virginia, drew 23,000 people, attributing the crowd estimate to a fire marshal.

Fairfax City Fire Marshal Andrew Wilson said his office did not supply that number to the campaign and could not confirm it. Wilson, in an interview, said the fire department does not monitor attendance at outdoor events.

Then there’s the 10,000 people that McCain’s goons claimed turned out at his rally in Pennsylvania. That number they claimed came from the Secret Service. Yeah, ‘cept the Secret Service doesn’t provide that kind of info— to anyone!

“We didn’t provide any numbers to the campaign,” said Malcolm Wiley, a spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service. Wiley said he would not “confirm or dispute” the numbers the McCain campaign has given to reporters.

Richie Rich Can’t Cut It Without His Bitch

leave a comment »

Reuters is reporting that in his first solo outing without the prom queen in tow, McCain was a flop in Philly and had to cut his campaign stop short after being outmatched by local Obama supporters.

The story goes like this: Grandpa Simpson stops in Philadelphia to try to snow people into voting for him. One problem: No Tall Tale Sarah, No Big Crowds. As such, a few Obama-maniacs were able to drown out the 72 year-old’s speech and the war hero high-tailed it out of town.

The end.

McCain is holed up in one of his many houses, Sarah is back in meth capital of the world.

Bambi Struggling to Make the Rent

leave a comment »

The front page of today’s NYT lays it out: Obama is having trouble raising cash. As is well-known, Bambi & Co. backed out of public financing for the Fall Fight and are now kinda sorta having second thoughts about that. Seems the dough ain’t rollin’ in at the rate expected, and we all know the big-money Hillary people are sitting on their hands. We got the shitty hotel rooms at the convention, fuck him!

In addition to overestimating the Hillraiser’s love, seems Obama’s team didn’t really think about the fact that raising all that cash takes time. Instead being out on the trail extolling the benefits of Obama Love, the man himself is having to take precious time off the campaign to go around to rich folks begging for cash. Not good.

Richie Rich meanwhile is sitting on $84 million of tax payer money, plus he’s pimping out the prom queen in a major way to raise cash for the well-oiled RNC machine. The former beauty queen is expected to be doing the old white men of the GOP 35 times (in group sessions) over the next two months.

Things are getting interesting. Full piece here.

Joe Biden Lights ‘Em Up!!!

You have got see this! The first minute and a half is CLASSIC! All I can say is “That’s what-the-fuck-I’m-talking about.”

Too bad (for the GOP) that the prom queen is too scared to speak to the press, but lucky for us— we got Joe!
