The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Welcome back, hope you had a nice 3-day weekend…

  • Our hopes, thoughts and prayers go out to everyone being affected by Hurricane Gustav
  • Because they didn’t want to repeat their pathetic response to Hurricane Katrina, republicans are reacting overzealously to Gustav… the gop convention convened with a subdued and shortened opening (though, with Cindy McCain and Laura Bush speaking on night 1, it would have been subdued regardless of Gustav)… McCain and Quayle Gov. Palin visited the region to shill for votes help...
  • CNN Headline; “Four Things McCain Needs to Accomplish This Week” (Not responding about being a POW when the question has nothing to do with that surprisingly not on the list…)
  • Joe Biden is taking the high road after Karl Rove called him a “big blowhard doofus.” Nice job Joe.. .allow me to respond back to Rove’s childish attack; “I’m rubber, your glue. What ever you say bounced off me and sticks to you. Blah!”
  • A new USA Today/Gallup poll shows that 64% of respondents are worried that McCain would “pursue policies that are too similar to what George W. Bush has pursued” with 47% being “very concerned” and 17% “somewhat concerned.” (By November the numbers for ‘very’ will be higher than ‘worried’… mark my words)
  • Showing either that she was their second third last choice or that his campaign is being run by a bunch of incompetent boobs, it seems that Gov. Quayle Palin wasn’t vetted completely by the McCain camp. The WSJ reports “while it’s possible” that the campaign contacted people in Alaska to inquire about the Governor, there was “no sign of it.” In fact, one republican with ties to the campaign told the paper that the team assigned to vet her didn’t arrive in Alaska until last Thursday… she was announced on Friday… (One day to vet a major party nominee seems stupid at best and incompetent at worst. Curiouser and curiouser…)
  • Sen. Lindsey Graham (r-SC) criticized Sen. Obama recently for being absent for so many Senate roll call votes… apparently missing the irony in the fact that McCain is the most absent member of the Senate, missing 63.8% of the votes while Obama has missed a paltry, in comparison, 45.5%... perhaps Lindsey should read up on stuff before he speaks…
  • And have we mentioned? That Gov. Quayle Palin has ties with some of Alaska’s most infamous politicians? While she was mayor of Wasilla, she hired a lobbying firm that was able to nab $27 million in federal earmarks and has “close ties” to Rep. Don Young and Sen. Ted Stevens… two of DC’s most famous indictees (Well, with ties like that, she’s more than qualified to be on the republican ticket…)

In 2001 the unpopular Guilliani of NY was transformed into a national hero after 9-11 terror attacks,.....

Today Mc'Cain is working to recycle the negligent Bush administration on account of Gustave...

Are Americans that DUMB to buy such a Change?

First it was 9-11 and now it is Gustav......Why does it have to be war or pestilence for Republicans to spin their cause and performance..

Unpopular Guillianni was transformed into a national hero at the expense of a terrorist attack and Mc'Cain now intends to recycle the GOP with the occurence of Gustave.....Is that a real Change?
