So, the TeeVee pundits thought it was even. The American people, those with brains, eyes and votes, think I won. Hmm. I wonder who's right?
40% of uncommitted voters who watched the debate tonight thought Barack Obama was the winner. 22% thought John McCain won. 38% saw it as a draw.

68% of these voters think Obama would make the right decision
about the economy. 41% think McCain would.

49% of these voters think Obama would make the right decisions about Iraq. 55% think McCain would.

Yikes. Pssst... John.... looks like you're fucked. This was your homefield subject and you got bum-rushed. All day long, old man. All day long.

The Big Smackdown: First Debate

Spanked that ass... spanked that ass... SPANKED THAT ASS.


Prepping for the Debate

Yo, young ones, I am busy prepping for the debate with the Mummy, or as I like to call it The Big Smackdown. Am I confident? Hell, I've aready ordered a dozen T-Shirts that say "Quit Shouting, Old Man. That Thing in Front of You is Called a Microphone" for my staff of Obamanaughts.

I'm going to rip Mr. McAngry Pants a new asshole.


Uh Oh, Someone is Out of Touch

I wonder if he's said this before? Hmm... If only there was some way, like video or something, to track this. Oh wait...

The Economy is Crumbling

Uh oh, the barbarians are at the gate and they are looking for blood.

From the WSJ:
The American financial system was shaken to its core on Sunday. Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection, and Merrill Lynch & Co. agreed to be sold to Bank of America Corp.

The U.S. government, which bailed out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac a week ago and orchestrated the sale of Bear Stearns Cos. to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. in March, played much tougher with Lehman. It refused to provide a financial backstop to potential buyers. Without such support, Barclays PLC and Bank of America, the two most interested buyers, walked away. Barclays said Monday it pulled out of the potential deal after deciding it wasn't in the best interest of shareholders.
Eight years of Rethuglican rule is coming apart. This is going to get uglier before it gets better.

Yeah, I Finally Called Them Out on the Lies

It's Okay As Long As You Are a Republican

Jesus, is this man really the only one in the media who sees through this shit? What does that say about the state of reporting in America? It frightens the complete hell out of me, yo.


Remember, This Election is Not About Issues

"This election is not about issues. This election is about a composite view of what people take away from these candidates." -Rick Davis, campaign manager for John McCain

My statement, released today, regarding the Old Party convention thus far:

You wouldn't know that this is such a critical election by watching the convention last night. I know we had our week. And the Republicans deserve theirs. But it's been amazing for me to watch over the last two nights. If you sit there, and you watch it. You're hearing a lot about John McCain, and he's got a compelling biography as a P.O.W.

You're hearing an awful lot about me. Most of which is not true.

What you're not hearing is a lot about you.

You haven't heard one word about how they're going to make the health system work - so that when a union is negotiating with a company it's not all just a discussion about higher premiums and you guys can actually start talking about higher wages and benefits.

You haven't heard one word about how we're gonna create more apprenticeship programs like the ones we have here. Or give other people a chance to train in new trades.

You haven't heard one word about getting serious about green and alternative energy. The kind of work that is resulting in all the expansion and hiring here.

You haven't heard one word about how we're going to strengthen unions so that working people get a decent stake.

You haven't heard one word about how we're going to improve math and science education so that we can hire more engineers to create more products in green technology.

You haven't heard one word about how we're going to deal with any aspect of the economy that is affecting you and your pocket day to day.

Haven't heard one word about it. Literally. Two nights. They have not said a word about it. They have not said a word about it. They've had a lot to say about me. But they haven't had anything to say about you.

And the thing that I'm insisting on in this election is that we can't keep playing the same political games we always play.
