For the last three years, a number of people of both parties have ridiculed the 50 State Strategy adopted by Howard Dean and Barrack Obama.
Recently, the Republican National Committee just . Montana! And remember, that’s money put there because the McCain campaign is outspent because of fundraising limits. Remember when, not more than a few years ago, it was taken as a given that the Republican campaign had much more money than the Democratic one?
Some people need to own up and admit they were wrong about campaign strategy. The Democratic Party has been in denial about this ever since Clinton and the party suffered for two decades. If the Republican Party doesn’t changed their will be .
Leaving you with a photo of a terrorist fist bump training camp taken by Joe Raedle of Getty:
Favorite comment: “Black secret service agent, black car, black candidate hitting a small, white child who is grimmacing in terror. What next America? has begun.”
Hmm, looking at the picture, it looks like I’m going to have to add the Wall Street Journal to the list of liberal rags.
We were up all night at my house working on the school newspaper. It was my house because I was the only person in the entire high school who had a and a laser printer.
The other editors started to complain about which things would be caught by our faculty advisor this time and we would be forced to change. One of them started calling her the “Fat Raging Bovine” or FRB for short. At that moment, I had a gap in the layout that no amount of finagling could cause me to get rid of. I filled the tiny space in with a line drawing of a bull overlaid with the text “FRB” crossed out.
We laughed, and moved onto the next page.
I never did get around to removing it.
I’ll get to the economy stupid after the jump.
Mike Murphy was once the chief political strategist of John McCain’s campaign. He recently posted some zingers about . Here is one:
Q: What’s the difference between a Pit Bull and a Hockey Mom?
A: You can feed a pit-bull for 483 years with 150 grand.

In my state Propsition 8 will try to amend the constitution to eliminate gay marriage. It will most likely pass.
I would normally use this as a launching pad into the utter stupidity of direct democracy. It is a shame that I can vote on propositions that can pass with a slim majority and have the force of a constitutional amendment.
But then others might say that, of course I’d have this view against Prop 8, I’m from or some other assorted ad hominem.
In reality, I think that this shows how far I’ve come.
Teh Gay after the jump
I haven’t watched any the presidential debates because I sort of like my LCD television set and don’t want to damage it just yet . Plus, other people do a more amusing analysis by counting tongue juts and generating word clouds.
This explains why I’m furiously googling what the hell a “” is ().
It also explains why I base my opinion on word-based transcripts and not strange body language.
And it occurred to me just how different the transcripts on McCain’s end seemed between this and the Saddleback Forums. You remember that? It was the debate at a evangelical Christian megachurch in which to be fair the same questions would be asked of both candidates with the latter being in a “cone of silence” which McCain won handily.
On comparing Saddleback to the debates after the jump
It has always amazed me the competency gap between the liberal columnists and the conservative and ones on the New York Times. The gap widened today as New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, has won the Nobel Prize in Economics.
For the last four years on this blog I’ve been quoting him profusely.
(Here is an column he wrote three years ago about the housing bubble that was pilloried by the right wing echo chamber.)
The commenters on Balloon Juice get funny when they get angry.
For instance, this article where John concludes, “And let me be clear, once again, the [Dirty Fucking Hippies I derided and mocked as delusional] were right.” In this case, it turns out the terrorist surveillance watchlist is being abused in the exact same ways they were abused in the sixties.
But the kicker is when a commenter writes:
But that’s not the worst of it. What’s really bad is that our law enforcement can’t take this terrorist watch list seriously. If cops are going in to monitor Quakers and Sierra Club meetings, the list isn’t worth a damn. What are we being protected from? Hiking and oatmeal?
Yep, that’s what I’m afraid of— and oatmeal!
And don’t even get me into Shredded Wheat. That shit gives new meaning to “ashes in our mouth.”
Got this in the inbox today:
Yes, because Blu-Ray costs more, Netflix going to charge more. Makes perfect sense right?
Wait ! What about the much vaunted scratch-resistance with Blu-Ray coatings such as ?
I’ve noticed I’ve had to clean 1 out of 10 discs and about 1 out of every 30 discs are busted, damaged, or unreadable. If we assume discs are rented , that means that a regular DVD disc lasts about a half year in circulation before it needs to be either taken out and a new one purchased.
What’s next? If I put I’ll have to pay a $1 more also?
I mean. Fine, Netflix, , but .
