The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

What do you mean it’s not Friday??

  • Remember that Democratic Party split that all the talking heads and traditional media have been harping about the last few days? The one that would destroy the party and its chances of winning in November? Yeah… not so much as the party has officially nominated Sen. Obama. So here’s my message to the main stream media… STFU. Last night, like previous nights, showed a party united in defeating one foe; republicans…specifically Sen. McCain. President Clinton didn’t mince words and said; “I support Obama” while at the same time saying Obama is ready to lead. VP Candidate Joe Biden was on fire, saying, “That's not change; that's more of the same” repeatedly about McCain’s stances on, well, pretty much every issue known to humanity… and then, to cap the evening, Obama made a surprise appearance to thunderous applause and tears of joy. I say we are a party united… we are a party with a goal in mind… we are a party ready to take the fight to the republicans and reclaim the White House...
  • On the docket today for the DNC…Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois... Obama campaign manager David Ploufe... the Pledge of Allegiance by Olympic Gold Medalist Shawn Johnson.. Colorado Governor Bill Ritter... DNC Chairman Howard Dean... New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson... Virginia Governor Tim Kaine... Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky... Colorado Rep. Mark Udall... former Vice President Al Gore... Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin... and the main event; Sen. Barack Obama’s acceptance speech... should be one helluva night.
  • Fox “News” has sunk to a new low (eventually they’re going to have to bottom out and won’t be able to go any lower, right?). The networks Megyn Kelly noted that during her DNC speech Monday night Michelle Obama said; “The world as it is just won't do…” Kelly said; “If you replace 'world' with 'country', you are back to the same debate, arguably, that you have been having about Michelle Obama's feelings about the country.” Are you fucking kidding me???? And they’re allowed to keep their license with this kind of crap reporting? Stop the world, I want to get off…
  • “President” Bush is supposed to speak at the republican National Convention on Monday, but may skip it if Tropical Storm Gustav hits the Gulf Coast as expected. Showing that maybe this president and this administration actually can learn from past mistakes, reports are coming in that “conversations underway” at the White House about whether Bush “will in fact speak on Monday.” (Believe it when I see it, so stay tuned)
  • Sources are reporting that Sen. McCain has chosen his VP and wi—ah who cares…
  • Ad have we mentioned? That it was forty five years ago today, August 28, 1963, that the world took a GIANT step forward? On this date forty-five years ago, 200,000 people watched Martin Luther King Jr. deliver his “I Have a Dream” speech from atop the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. And tonight, Sen. Obama will become the first African-American presidential nominee in the history of the United States… and these words from Dr. King can be remembered; “I have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character.”
