Campaign Ugliness

For those of you who still don't believe that the GOP is using race and "religion" in their smear campaign against Barack Obama, go to http://crooksandliars.com and scroll down that first page.  Check out the stuff that the GOP is doing in California.  Check out the things that McCain-Palin supporters were saying about him at a recent rally in Ohio.  It is ugly, ugly, ugly out there.  And it's going to get worse before this is over.

Did you see John McCain on Dave Letterman? I read this in a friend's blog about it. It may be worth watching to lift your spirits!

They got talking about William Ayers and Barack Obama and McCain was spouting his usual BS, and Dave says "Well, isn't it true that you know Gordon Liddy? And McCain is like "Um...uh..Yeah, I've met him..." and Dave says "Isn't it true that you attended a fundraiser AT HIS HOUSE?" McCain was like "Uh...um..blah blah blah" and Dave cut to commercial.

And later he grilled him on Sarah Palin saying that Obama pals around with terrorists and asked which ones. McCain just laughed and said something like "Oh, there are a lot of WORDS said during a campaign...a lot of WORDS..." and had no answer. Oh man. Dave wasn't kidding about the road to the White House runs through his studio.

There's a transcript floating around out there as well as youtube footage I think. I thought this news might lift your spirits!

Only so ugly. Glenn Beck going to Fox News was good news!

The story today is Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R-MN, 06) going on Hardball and saying, in addition to the regular Ayers, Rezko, Obama is a Socialist garbage:

"What I would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. I wish they would. I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out, are they pro-America or Anti-America? I think the American people would love to see an expose like that."

Joe McCarthy would be proud. An interesting side note is that on the Netroots fund raising page on Act Blue for her opponent, (Elwyn Tinklenberg) prior to this appearance, had 60 donors and around $2,500 in contributions. At this time (10:20 ET) he has 1319 donors and $53,440 in contributions.

She was also one of the 3 panelists on Larry King tonight. At one point Lars Larson (a radio talk mouth piece) called Obama a Marxist. Larry asked if that made his side fascists. :)

Of course, McCain standing in front of a Red State (read: Welfare state as they receive more money from the Federal Government than send to DC) and spouting the "spread the wealth" line as if everyone in the audience made $10 million like Cindy McCain last year. Uh folks, they want to take some of John and Cindy's cash and give some of it to you. Figure it out.
