Fox News Metric: Palin Wins Debate, Her Flag Pin Was Bigger (VIDEO)

with one comment

Yesterday morning Fox News declared Palin the “hands down winner” of the VP debate due partly to the fact that her lapel flag pin was “about three times the size” of the one worn by America hating commie, Joe Biden. 

Insinuations about Biden’s patriotism aside, Fox failed to note that Palin’s “pin” was in fact a jewel adorned broach, an item of jewelery usually worn by women— which may explain why Biden wasn’t wearing one.

Moreover please note that in the Presidential debate, America loving patriot John McCain was not wearing a flag pin at all, while the anti-American Muslim, Barack Obama was.

On that day Fox News failed to declare Obama the winner based on the fact that he was wearing a pin and McCain was not.

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.)

McCain in 1998: “Is bin Laden Really that Bad?”

leave a comment »

Well, this is disconcerting. Mr. ”I’ll follow him to the Gates of hell, but not into Pakistan” didn’t really think bin Laden was really all that bad back in 1998, and wondered about the consequences of declaring war on terrorists.

McCain Camp Pushing Pre-Election Wedding?

leave a comment »

New rumor is that that the McCain team is pushing for a pre-election wedding between Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston. I just don’t believe it but here’s the story:

Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. “It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down the race for a week.”

There is already some urgency to the wedding as Bristol, who is six months pregnant, may not want to walk down the aisle too close to her date of delivery. 

As I’ve said before I think there is no way this happens, but I guess you never know.

Why Won’t McCain Release His Medical Records?

leave a comment »

John McCain claims to put “country first” in advertising designed to convince people that he should be President of the Unteid States. Like any product you market, always accentuate the positive and don’t talk about the negative. Is that why McCain, who is 72 years old and has had cancer 4 times— let me repeat that: HAS HAD CANCER FOUR TIMES– won’t release his medical records?

John Mccain’s four bouts with cancer have been with malignant melanoma a deadly skin cancer with a 40% recurrance rate. Moreover, survival and mortality rates in this type of cancer are judged in 5-year survival rates. As in “an 80% chance of surviving five years”, an “40% chance of survival for five years”, etc.

I know McCain’s wife, Cindy, hides all her income tax statements and refuses to release them to the public under any circumstances. Imagine if Obama or Kerry or Gore tried such a stunt? Picture the media’s reaction.

However, that’d be a purely political issue. John McCain not releasing his medical record puts the entire nation in the dark. Regardless of your political party you have a right to know the medical condition of the man (72 years old or not. Four time cancer survivor or not) who could possibly be the leader of the free world for as many as eight years. A man who puts the good of the nation above his personal desires for power would release these records.

Moreover, considering that McCain’s VP is universally seen as wildly unqualified to run the nation makes McCain’s records all the more relevant. Please contact your local and national media outlets to request that they ask four time cancer patient John McCain why he refuses to release his medical records.
