The Monday ‘BushWhack’ing

Rats… it’s Monday already.

  • Will we have resolution to either candidate’s VP race this week? I think yes… and I think it will be Obama… and it will come before the week is done… and the leader is Joe Biden (D-DE), though keep your eyes on General Wes Clark, Governor Bill Richardson and Governor Tim Kaine, who have all spoke out recently about vital campaign topics. Stay tuned.
  • Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain are sniping at each other still over Georgia (the Euro version, not the US version)… Obama’s people say that McCain (and Bush for that matter) were, and are, too focused on Iraq to see the crisis in Georgia forming. McCain’s people say that Obama's initial reaction to the invasion shows that the Illinois senator lacks the toughness needed to be president…
  • Obama raised $51 million in July
  • Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf announced his resignation today, saying; “I don’t want the people of Pakistan to slide deeper and deeper into uncertainty.” What’s more astonishing is that he also said he was national interest above “personal bravado”… too bad someone in THIS country couldn’t take the hint…
  • Further enhancing his jump to the Dark Side, Joe “I Heart McCain” Lieberman (I r-CT)’s staff said that the Senator now regrets voting against Justice ScAlito… (if the Dems win the White House and a larger majority in the Senate, Lieberman needs to be stripped of everything…)
  • And have we mentioned? That one of McCain’s Veep choices was stumped this past weekend? In an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press, David Gregory asked Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal; “What’s the big idea Senator McCain is campaigning on?” When Jindal couldn’t give a specific answer and replied with the incredibly non-specific; “I think there’s several”, Gregory asked again; “Where are the new big ideas of the Republican Party that John McCain is, is championing?” Jindal again couldn’t provide a single answer… and he isn’t the first McCain puppet to be stumped by the question, per ThinkProgress, “Earlier this month, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) couldn’t name a single McCain accomplishment on energy in his long congressional career. Similarly, Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) recently drew a blank when asked to name a major economic policy that Bush and McCain do not agree on.” (Hah!! So much for the so-called ‘party of big ideas.’ McCain is further tarnishing the republican brand… and I couldn’t enjoy it more)
