Weary. You do the work.
Here is my sister’s dog, Huck, and a friend:
I will be back later with some debate threads. I really don’t even care to watch, other than to watch McCain flail wildly about Ayers, now that he has been goaded into actually saying the stuff to Obama’s face rather than cowering behind the RNC, surrogates, and Palin.
That One - Cain
This looks like it could be photoshopped to show a fake expose of a doggy affair ala New York Post.
What a couple of sweetheart pooches. They look a little groggy. Must have caught them before morning coffee. And I hope they made up their bed.
He seems to switch positions on whether or not he’s going to confront Obama about this more than he switches positions on the financial crisis, so I am not sure what he’s planning to do. But if he’s been planning to confront him about it, he better have something good to slam Obama with or he’s going to look like a fool. If he decides not to do it, he’ll look like a chump, and he’ll pissed off everyone who thinks he’s missed the only chance he has left to turn this around. So it seems like he’s placed himself into a now-win situation.
I’m actually eager to see the debate. I never watched the first one, because I am developing this bizarre aversion to watching programs on my DVR. Plus, I hope everything starts to go faster after this is over. Like others have said, it seems like it’s dragging at this point. My friend wants me to go to a bar somewhat near Hofstra to watch it, but from what I’ve heard by talking to people, they shut down the campus and major roads nearby. The traffic in Nassau can be a nightmare regardless, so I imagine it’ll be that much worse because of the security. I guess I’ll watch it home.
John, Brad over at S,N! hopes that the McCain campaign takes the advice of the Cornerites, expressed as follows:
Yes, yes indeed. But when McCain takes their advice and goes down in flames, will Pitney Jr. be as gutsy as Otter was and say “You f-ed up! You trusted us!” to Flounder McCain?
You’d be missing out on what is sure to be the best one of them all. Picture a boxing match; one guy up by at least 30, one more round to go. Losing guy has to go Tyson on his oppo to even have a chance (not to mention bribing the judge, eliminating some judges, flinging poo in judges’ eyes, not counting some rounds where he got hammered, etc).
IMO, McCane will go Rambo on Obama tonite, and either flame out spectacularly, or be declared "Da Winnah in a Landslizzle". Being this is our media, it’ll be the latter.
You cannot….repeat…..CANNOT miss this debate.
I must admit, CNN’s approve-o-meter has got me hooked. I’ll just do what I did for the previous debate — hit the mute button every time McCain starts making noises with his lying yap hole.
My prediction: Nothing much will happen.
Bob Schieffer is an idiot.
McCain is tormented and can’t remember what he had for lunch.
Obama is cool and collected.
These are facts going in. The same facts will be in effect after the thing is over.

I carried this place last night with a tiny bit of help from Canyon Spice and no thanks at all. I facilitated dialogue and affirmed a positive and open environment that embraced diversity and mutual understanding between us and Canada. There was the little unpleasantness with the troll but that coulda happened on anyone’s watch.
Normally I try to keep this stuff political, but Amy has started a YouTube project, and has a trailer up right now. It’s called the Chupacabra Hunter.

FYI, I’m skipping class tonight to watch the debate.
See? This is what happens when you allow gay marriage. Now even unwed dogs are sleeping together. Just look how guilty the one on the left looks. You can just tell she was doing some nasty things under those sheets.
Here’s a fascinating insight into the sort of actions that some in the South think Obama would take as president:
“He’s going to tear up the rose bushes and plant a watermelon patch,” said James Halsey, chuckling, while standing in the Wal-Mart parking lot with fellow workers in the environmental cleanup business. “I just don’t think we’ll ever have a black president.”

Maybe the south will secede again and this time we can nuke ’em.

@Phoenix Woman: And the thought of McPOW being erotic under any circumstances will cause Obama to go down with a near fatal case of dry-heaves. Gotcha.
And if that doesn’t work he can do a little song and dance. Maybe juggle a few wives…
Just remember–south Florida isn’t part of the South. And New Orleans is worth keeping around.
I know how to win flame wars, my friends.
And there will be other wars. There will be other wars.
That sound you will hear is 30 million Americans watching the debate in their living room puking up their dinner.
Could you please turn off wp-pda? I visited this site on my Treo today and while the cut down version was awesome at first glance, it turns out they also truncate the posts if they’re beyond a certain length.
So essentially this thing that had the great idea of making more streamlined pages for PDA users so they don’t have to download as much is forcing me to click on every entry individually, which besides being annoying and slow means I have to download all the comments for each one, so I actually end up downloading more.
If there’s an option to turn off truncation so I can have one page of content I could just scroll through it would be pretty sweet. If not I declare this plugin FAIL and hope you consider getting rid of it.
If he brings up something like catching Osama and repeats that he knows how to do it and will absolutely do it, I really hope Obama calls him on it. What would McCain say in response? What could he say that wouldn’t make him look like an idiot?
Aside from being disturbed by the thought of Grandpa Simpson being erotic, people probably aren’t going to respond well to a serious topic being met with disinterested sarcasm. It would make McCain look foolish and even ignorant of the fear and anxiety that people have over what is happening.
Perhaps McCain is taking a break from watching Animal House and reading this blog. If he is, here’s my advice: he should be nakedly honest and humble. It’s pretty clear that he hasn’t given a lot of thought to this financial crisis, but why not say so? Doing that doesn’t require him to sound weak and ignorant. He should remind people that he understands the basics of what went on but isn’t one hundred percent sure of a solution just yet. He should say that he’s open to more regulation, if that’s what’s necessary, but doesn’t want to rush into things, because he’s sure that while government involvement is sometimes necessary, too much government intervention is a recipe for disaster. He should say that he would do whatever it takes to keep the markets functioning so that businesses and banks can lend and governments can function until a new set of policies is agreed upon. He should say that he’s confident that the country will recover, even if it is long and painful.
@Phoenix Woman: I hope that John sees your comment. He really appreciates what his old sites say. lol
Alright, now I am worried. Dick Morris is predicting an Obama landslide. I thought Kristol criticizing McCain was bad, but this makes me think McCain is headed towards a fifty-state victory.
@Brian J: Please don’t go there. The idea of Palin or even McCain at this point as President is frightening. McCain wants to go into Iran and he still believes that will improve our economy like in WWII. How many factories in the USA are actually making clothes for our soldiers. How many weapons factories do we see. He’s living in a different era.
Why is anyone in the responsible media repeating the supposed Jesse Jackson interview that spews garbage about Sen. Obama’s Israel policy. It was first reported by Amir Teheri, a known right wing nut and liar, in the NY Post.
It was picked up by the right wing blogosphere yesterday and then by Fox this morning. Later, CNN, MSNBC and ABC reported the interview as fact. They all take the quotes at face value and not one of them has asked for tape or video of the interview despite the dubious source. Now Obama and his camp have had to spend time disavowing Jackson. I thought the MSM was supposed to be Liberal? If so, why did they behave like an outlet for GOP propaganda on this?
Not a debate comment: One thing that’s surprised me today is that there haven’t been any leftie blog posts that I’ve seen about yesterday’s election in Canada. Like, every few years bunches of people of a liberal persuasion swear they’re going to move up if their candidate doesn’t win, but they don’t actually seem to be all that interested in the country itself.
Summary: it didn’t go all that well (can’t believe Harper’s still got a job) but it could have gone worse. Let us be grateful for Canada’s spoilers, the Bloc Quebecois.
They don’t want to shatter the weed-smoking, poutine-eating, maple syrup-drinking, gay-marrying, "eh"-uttering illusions.
And yeah, I am also finding it hard to believe that Harper still has a job, but I can see how Dion wasn’t able to really seal the deal.
And the Bloc? I’m of two minds with the Bloc. On one hand, I can see their value on the provincial level. On the other hand, I cannot help but chafe at the fact that a party that focuses on one province and one province only has such a large voice on the national stage. Leaders should not be in the national debate unless they are able to lead the entire country.
I’m not sure McCain is going to be the one to raise the issue of Ayres.
apologies for the misapplied tags. the para below the blockquote should have been included in the block.
Debate, schmebate! Can we focus on the the fact that those two obviously different canine breeds are about to mate?!? That’s not racial purity we can believe in, my friends!
@Melinda: Canada. Canada…sorry, refresh my memory – next to Spain, right?
