The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

TBWA is not a “rich man” either…

  • After getting ‘Aye’ votes by both Sen. Obama and Sen. McCain, the bailout plan won approval in the Senate yesterday, but that didn’t prevent stocks from falling at this morning’s opening bell.
  • The VP debate is tonight in St. Louis expect one of two things to happen; Sen. Biden will wipe the floor with Gov. Palin, OR, Palin will surprise everyone and offer concise and decisive answers that are well thought-out… (wow, I was able to type that without going into convulsions from laughing. I expect Biden to win, but I DO NOT think that it will be as big a victory as some people believe it will be)
  • If there’s any question at all, any about the objectivity of Gwen Ifill, then replace her… (take away the reason for complaining, then they can’t complain. Leave it, and they’ll question the results)
  • The trial of Alaskan Sen. Ted Stevens continues and yesterday a note was read from Stevens to Bill Allen that read; “You owe me a bill. Remember Torricelli. Friendship is one thing, compliance with ethics rules is another. I asked Bob [Persons] to talk with you about this. ... It just has to be done right.” (Hmmm…that certainly seems to me like someone is covering their ass while angling for something comped)
  • The Senate overwhelmingly approved a nuclear trade deal with India last night that was dismissed by the executive director of the Arms Control Association who said the is a “nonproliferation disaster” because India has never signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty… (Well, that certainly makes sense. Approve a nuclear trade deal with India? I’m sure that will never come back to bite us on the ass…)
  • And have we mentioned? That the lies of the McCain-Palin campaign say are getting more and more ridiculous? Last week Palin said that “Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America”, which made the campaign release a statement saying that “Russian incursions…inside the air defense identification zone have occurred.” Problem with that is, they haven't … at least they haven’t according to the US Air Force. Naturally a Palin spokesperson tried to backtrack in saying that the governor was trying to make a point of the fact that the “geographical location of Alaska has unique attributes.” (Huh? She was trying to make a point about geography and decided that accusing Russia of invading US air space was the best way to do it? How the hell does this woman come up with her answers? Dart board… spinning wheel… whatever McCain says? Give me a break. Maybe I’ll change my opinion above about tonight’s debate, perhaps Biden WILL sweep the floor with her)

The bookies are betting against her. The pressure is insurmountable. They were just trying to figure out what type of drug she should be on to calm her down back at the GOP ranch. If she comes out glossy eyed = you won't be able to say I didn't tell ya so.

In regard to this evening's debate-some how I doubt that Mrs. Palin will have a plethora of intelligent answers to the moderator's questions (no matter WHO the moderator might be). The woman cannot speak to any subject that doens't have to do with Alaska-and even then she's iffy (see the above made reference to Russia).

Biden MAY have an issue with speaking too much. At least he has a clue as to what he speaks about...but I think he might be a tad verbacious. I agree the winner will be clear cut, but not by the margins one might think.

I can't understand why so few people are saying what everyone is thinking? Palin is just not qualified and completely lacks anything but a small town, where is the Middle East mind.

Additionally, why isn't McCain not getting slammed more for his lack of judgment on his VP pick. Clearly a political one that if he were to win would put America in danger if she ever had to step in.
