The {Abbreviated} Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

TBWA is not worried about becoming “elites”… we’re already there. Would you like some arugula with today's 'Daily'?

  • “President” Bush has decided to show himself today and is addressing the US Chamber of Commerce to defend the bailout. (Bush is frantically trying to salvage some sort of legacy for himself, which will be darn near impossible. He knows that if the economy is in the toilet when he leaves office, his legacy will be forever tarnished – just ask President Carter – so he’s desperately trying to show leadership… ain’t gonna work. Mr. Bush; we ain’t buying what you’re peddling…)
  • With 18 days to go, Sen. McCain has an uphill battle to make up the polling deficit he’s facing against Sen. Obama… but as I said yesterday, it’s all polling and NOT ACTUAL VOTES. Don’t get complacent…
  • Joe Lieberman says McCain is “on the road to victory”… I say Lieberman is on the road to political insignificance…
  • Second note to myself: don’t fuck with David Letterman
  • Despite feedback that the American people don’t give a rat’s ass about Obama’s so-called relationship with Bill Ayers, the gop has launched robocalling attacking Obama on Ayers… (Is the gop being run by the same people running McCain’s campaign? I’m just askin’…)
  • And have we mentioned? That the candidates appeared together again last night? Appearing at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner together, the two swapped jokes, poked fun at each other and themselves and had some fun. Obama’s best line of the night; “Contrary to the rumors you have heard, I was not born in a manger. I was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father, Jor-el, to save the planet Earth…” (Nice…) McCain’s best line of the night; “Even in this room full of proud Manhattan Democrats, I can't shake the feeling that some people here are pulling for me," he said, before adding: "I'm delighted to see you here tonight, Hillary.” (Nice… it’s nice to see the candidates step off the trail, raise a lot of money for a worthwhile and noble cause and have fun. Now, back to the trail…
