Oh, look: the Drag on the Ticket’s in Missouri.
Via Gateway Pundit. AP How embarrassing for McCain; she barely managed to beat out Kerry/Edwards, from four years ago. Clearly a horrible, horrible mistake on the Maverick’s part. As for Joe Biden? Why, he got at least twelve hundred of the Missouri Youth Vote to show up for his rally…
For your morning enjoyment: Palin kicks Obama/Biden in the face over gutting the coal industry.
Really, media folks: the next time a Presidential candidate casually announces that he’s going to slowly strangle the industry that provides us with half of our electrical power, cover it as it happens. Letting us run with it two days before an election is kind of contraindicated, at least from your point of view. Originally via here, but the link is goofy: try here if | Read More »
Palin’s other base: Special Needs Families.
No word if news of that sent Keith Olbermann into a full epileptic seizure, but the day’s still young: Via LA Time’s Top of the Ticket, which was… reasonable in its coverage of the event, if a little disappointed that the Governor more or less – and wisely – let the immigration stuff slide in favor of talking about lower taxes. There’s not much else | Read More »
Palin rips into LA Times over “THE TAPE.”
But the LA Times didn’t, so now it’s a campaign issue. Thanks, LA Times! Moe Lane PS: I’d suggest that Senators Obama and Biden try to make this story go away in their next press conference, except that they don’t actually do those anymore. Unlike, say, Governor Palin.
“Sarah Palin’s a Brainiac”
Probably not literally, but you never know. The heretic in question is Elaine Lafferty, who is a former Hillary Clinton supporter, former editor-in-chief of Ms. Magazine, pretty decent journalism bio – and current adviser to the McCain/Palin campaign, which will of course permit her critics to redefine her as a traitor to her gender. Yes, I’m aware of how weird that observation looks. It’s a | Read More »
The Soon to be Legendary Jeri Thompson of Team Sarah H&C Video.
Via Gateway Pundit: Personally, I think that Alan Colmes should be grateful. I’m given to understand that normally he’d have to pay somewhere around six, seven hundred bucks to get spanked that comprehensively. Moe Lane PS: Go, Team Sarah.
And *this* is why we all did our happy dance when McCain picked Palin.
Because this is what we wanted, and this is what we’re going to be getting from here on in. I guess that we know now why Biden took the day off – but not what the method is that the Obama campaign is using to keep this from happening again. I’m personally guessing electroshock, but that’s because I’m married to a mad scientist (well, mad | Read More »
Alec Baldwin explains the realities of life to the grubby little HuffPovians.
Mr. Baldwin takes the time to instruct the hoi polloi in the way the world operates: …I wonder, what did some of you people actually think would happen with Palin on SNL? Saturday Night Live is a comedy show. It’s not Meet the Press. It doesn’t “ask the tough questions” or “set the agenda.” It attempts, with varying degrees of success, to make people laugh. | Read More »
Um. No, Elizabeth Snead. You *can’t* shoot your foot off that way.
In the process of reporting on a stock photo grabbed by Newsweek for its cover of Governor Palin, the LA Times snarks: Hey, is that even the right way to hold a rifle? Can’t you shoot your foot off like that? Take a look: Now, if you don’t understand why people are laughing, then I suggest that you show the photo to a conservative that | Read More »
One last one for the night.
Via Hot Air, here’s the next helping: As Allahpundit notes: it’s going to be fun tomorrow night. I figure we’ll see Barack Obama splutter for a full minute at least once, poor fellow. Moe Lane
National Enquirer? Prison Planet? Daily Dish? New York Times, actually. No further comment necessary on my part, I think. But maybe you should read Bill Whittle’s, again.
Boarding Party: Palin’s reinvigoration of GOP enthusiasm.
“Cutlasses out and boots off! Stand by for impact, raking fire from the bow guns, then over the side and into the ship! WAIT FOR IT, YOU SWABS! There’ll be plenty there for everybody! Steady… steady… steady…” “CRASH!” “UP AND AT ‘EM!!!“ GOP Sees Rebound in Battle for Congress Party Hopes Momentum Will Help Limit Losses Like many of her Republican colleagues concerned about their | Read More »
Well, I guess that it’s over for Sarah.
I… I had no idea. (Via Protein Wisdom) It’s all changed, now.
Palin shoots Bigfoot!
From my point of view, it just disappeared one day, apparently to get sucked into some other tabloid – which was just not the same. The heavens might fall, the seas could rise, the sun be eaten by the moon, the Red Sox might even win the World Series… but the WWN never, ever betrayed me. It was always full of the most entertaining nonsense, | Read More »
Palin’s memory better than Gibson’s research skills?
Let’s set the scenario: GIBSON: You said recently, in your old church, “Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God.” PALIN: You know, I don’t know if that was my exact quote. GIBSON: Exact words. PALIN: But the reference there is a repeat of Abraham Lincoln’s words when he said — first, he suggested never presume to know what | Read More »
Boxing Day at Hot Air: A switcheroo on Palinmania.
Nonetheless, anybody who has read Hot Air for any length of time knows that Allahpundit’s the pessimist and Ed Morrissey’s the optimist. Which makes today’s switch here kind of cool. First, Ed, who is echoing Glenn Reynolds’ “Don’t get cocky, kid”: …we have to guard against the same kind of cult of personality that arose around Obama and continues to this day. We want the | Read More »
AoSHQ wants this to be the new Palin theme song.
Although frankly, I like the studio version better: …alas, as AoSHQ also notes, the title is, ah, problematical.
McCain campaign: Hey, we paid for the right to use Heart’s “Barracuda.”
Which they are (Via Hot Air Headlines). Personally, I like this take from the guitarist: And the band’s former guitarist, Roger Fisher, told Reuters last week that the McCain camp’s use of the song benefited both sides: Republicans get “the ingenious placement of a kick-ass song” — and Heart gets headlines and royalties. Part of that money, said Fisher, would be heading to the Arizona | Read More »
