Joe the Plumber: Obama ‘Well-Spoken’ and ‘Tap Dances Like Sammy Davis Jr.’ (VIDEO)

with one comment


Where to start? Yeah, Katie Couric does seem to get first crack at all the nut-jobs and “Joe the Plumber” is no different. In his first interview since being made famous in last night’s debate, “Joe” had a chit-chat with Katie Couric in which he tell the anchor that Obama is “well spoken” and that he “tap dances like Sammy Davis Jr.”

What the fuck? Now, if you are wondering whether or not you read that right, you did. “Joe the Plumber” thinks that Limbaugh’s magic negro  is both a good tap dancer and speaks well, too!

Landslide? Really?

Today all the blogs (that aren’t talking about the stock market) are a flutter with talk of a landslide this November— certain polls bear that out.

Republicans Crossed Line with Voter Purge Attempt

leave a comment »

By John Bohlinger – 10/05/2008 

Frank St. Pierre, of Anaconda, fought in World War II. He is one of the most decorated living veterans in America. And yet, on Wednesday, my party — the Montana Republican Party — tried to invalidate his voter registration because he lives in a county with a lot of Democrats. Incredible as this may sound to you, it is the truth.

John McCain Selling One of His 12 Mansions

leave a comment »

Man, things really must be getting tough out there. When a man who claims that the fundamentals of our economy our strong needs to put one of his twelve mansions on the market for a mere $12 million, you know people are hurting.

(Many photos of the estate here.)

John McCain Pays $5,000 for His Make Up

with one comment

That’s right. In addition to not knowing how many houses he owns, driving 13 cars, and walking around in $500 loafers Richie Rich spent $5,583.43 for the make up services of the woman pictured above— according the the Federal Election Commission.

Remember when people went nuts over John Edwards’ haircuts and Obama’s acceptance speech stage? What will the media say about McCain’s make up? I’m betting with the exception of Rachel Maddow or Olbermann, no one says shit.

12 Lies of Sarah Palin

leave a comment »

The pitbull can’t seem to walk a straight line. Here’s the break down in no uncertain terms from the Atlantic:

– She has lied about the Bridge To Nowhere. She ran for office favoring it, wore a sweatshirt defending it, and only gave it up when the federal congress, Senator McCain in particular, went ballistic. She kept the money anyway and favors funding Don Young’s Way, at twice the cost of the original bridge.

– She has lied about her firing of the town librarian and police chief of Wasilla, Alaska.

– She has lied about pressure on Alaska’s public safety commissioner to fire her ex-brother-in-law.

– She has lied about her previous statements on climate change.

– She has lied about Alaska’s contribution to America’s oil and gas production.

– She has lied about when she asked her daughters for their permission for her to run for vice-president.

– She has lied about the actual progress in constructing a natural gas pipeline from Alaska.

– She has lied about Obama’s position on habeas corpus.

– She has lied about her alleged tolerance of homosexuality.

– She has lied about the use or non-use of a TelePrompter at the St Paul convention.

– She has lied about her alleged pay-cut as mayor of Wasilla.

– She has lied about what Alaska’s state scientists concluded about the health of the polar bear population in Alaska.
