The Daily Show examines Fox News’ reaction to Obama leading in the polls. The conclusion is simple: Fox is becoming unhinged. According to Stewart, “Fox News: The World’s Unfair and We’re Becoming Mentally Unbalanced.”

New Poll Numbers

leave a comment »

Well, this is disconcerting. Seems for the first time that I can ever remember, NOBODY likes the way the national economy looks. Seriously. ZERO PERCENT of people polled thinks things are getting better in this country. That’s right, fucking ZERO!

American research group has released it’s latest poll data and the results are interesting. Graphs and charts after the jump… Read the rest of this entry »

18x “Fundamentals of Our Economy Are Strong.” (In Video)

leave a comment »

Here’s a nice little compilation of McCain saying how “The Fundamentals of our economy are strong.” Eighteen times over the past twelve months. That means about every six weeks homeboy hits up this taking point without fail. Should probably spend more time reading the paper and less time reading his script. He’s clearly got his lines down pat.

Biggest Flip-Flop Yet.

leave a comment »

Richie Rich has flown over America in his private jet, surveyed the damage and in the course of 36 hours, decided the economy has gone from “strong” to total crisis — in a mere day and a half!

That’s gotta be some sort of Flip Flop Hall of Fame type shit. 36 hours! In a  day and a half, Mr. “I Don’t Know Much About the Economy” decides we’re in a “total crisis”, after all. Gee, what the fuck do you think the first hint was for this stupid motherfucker?

Let real wages fall, number of American’ living in poverty rise, unemployment spike and every thing’s cool. Let some Wall Street bitches lose their yacht money on real estate, and now “it’s total crisis.”

The Meltdown Continues

leave a comment »

After the Government announced an $85 billion bailout of AIG the stock market continued it’s full-blown meltdown today, with shares of Morgan Stanley off 45%, Goldman Sachs down, 25%, and an out-right seizing of the credit markets.

I wonder stupid shit the McCain campaign will sy about it today. Click here and here for yesterdays instant classics.

A Tale of Two Candidates

leave a comment »

Barack Obama accurately describes the failing of our major financial institutions as a “major threat”.

He also had this to say:

“The challenges facing our financial system today are more evidence that too many folks in Washington and on Wall Street weren’t minding the store,” he said. “Eight years of policies that have shredded consumer protections, loosened oversight and regulation, and encouraged out sized bonuses to CEOs while ignoring middle-class Americans have brought us to the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression.”

On the matter of the failing of two major financial institutions today John McCain recylcled his old line and had this to say:

“The fundamentals of our economy are strong.”

Watch it here.

John McCain is Stupid.

leave a comment »

There he goes again. With Lehman Brothers in liquidation, Merill Lynch being sold off for $50 billion to B of A, Washington Mutual and AIG on the verge of collapse, unemployment on the rise, $100 a barrel oil, $4 gallon gas, and Alan Greenspan describing the economic peril facing this country as a once in a century kind of thing, Grandpa Simpson had this to say today:

 “The fundamentals of our economy are strong”

Whether you agree with him or not, what the fuck is he doing repeating that disastrous line on a day like today? Maybe it’s true what he said, maybe he really doesn’t know that much about the economy.
