Because, really, the stupidity of the article below is crystallizing at the bottom of the glass. I note with interest today, John McCain’s new tactic of associating Barack Obama with oversexed and/or promiscuous young white women. (Via Jake Tapper, who submitted this without comment, except to casually deflate Marshall’s clumsy attempt to link this to the Ford ad*; then again, given that Jake had previously | Read More »
Obama Pre-emptively Pulls Race Card Then Goes Back to Staring at His Reflection in the Stream
Well done you effete snob, but race has nothing to do with it.* Barack Obama has finally pulled the race card against John McCain and the Republicans. You know, Mr. “I transcend politics” has finally, tacitly admitted he is just a typical politician by accusing those who don’t like him of being racist. “Nobody thinks that Bush or McCain have a real answer for the | Read More »

General Zod will crush Obama under his boot heel
Obama is spending way too much time worrying about McCain’s ads, and needs to worry about his real competition. General Zod is certain to be unamused by the hopechangehope speech in Berlin. The Zod 2008 web site gives the details of how Zod will sweep the Messiah away.
This wouldn’t have been a remarkable article on, say, March 13th.
But July 30th? Not so much. (Via Hot Air Headlines Tick.Tick.Tick.
New additions to the RedState Store
We’ve added to the RedState store. You can pick up a host of items including these two new designs:
Tim Kaine: Not Ready for Prime Time
Rumor is that Barack Obama will soon announce Tim Kaine as his vice presidential nominee; I tend to agree with Jim Geraghty that Republicans ought to welcome such a selection. If Obama chooses to double-down on lack of experience and foreign policy credentials, it can only improve the contrast with John McCain. But why make that argument myself when one of Kaine’s local Virginia papers | Read More »
Taxing the rich.
Yesterday morning on a local talk station, a black business owner called in and said that he is extremely concerned about Obama’s plan for tax increases on the rich. He said, “I’ve worked hard all these years and finally own my own business and am proud to be making over $250,000. I don’t think it’s fair that I fork over a big portion of my | Read More »
Barack Obama ‘s Stealth Socialism
By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Monday, July 28, 2008 4:20 PM PT Election ’08: Before friendly audiences, Barack Obama speaks passionately about something called “economic justice.” He uses the term obliquely, though, speaking in code — socialist code. During his NAACP speech earlier this month, Sen. Obama repeated the term at least four times. “I’ve been working my entire adult life to help build | Read More »
Is it Okay to Vote Against a Candidate Because of His Race?
UPDATED and BUMPED: According to the Politico late yesterday, the Democrats have denied a request by Cohen for money to fight off Nikki Tinker. But, the Congressional Black Caucus has given Nikki Tinker $5,000.00 and additional fundraising support from Stephanie Tubbs Jones. The answer to the question is no. It is, in fact, the only acceptable answer and if you think otherwise, RedState is not | Read More »
There is no proof that Obama wanted cameras to follow him!
The Washington Post and ABC News’ Jake Tapper have a gripe with the McCain camp. Since Tapper has been one of the stars of this campaign’s coverage so far, let’s pick it up from him. Tapper quotes John McCain regarding Barack Obama’s refusal to visit wounded American soldiers in Germany’s Landstuhl Hospital. “I have no idea except that I know that according to reports that | Read More »
Britney, Paris, Barack – what do these three have in common?
HT to Drudge for pointing out this beauty of a campaign ad from John McCain. I take back what I said about JM not having the ‘nads to run an aggressive campaign. It is perfect timing for this particular ad, given The Obamessiah’s cult-of-personality trip overseas. As the Guinness guys say, “BRILLIANT!”
So, let us assess the reactions of the USA to Obama’s Magical Pretty Senator* World Tour.
I’m sure that said reaction will be quite significant. So, starting with Rasmussen, we have a six-point bounce… erm. Back down to two and margin-of-error, huh? :crumpling up paper and tossing it in wastebasket: Well, there’s always Gallup and its 9 8 6 4 point lead. Or, as Gallup put it on 7/23,”modest“… :crumple:
