Dayum! That McCain is one clever guy!

Remember last night how I wrote about how the leftosphere was trying to paint McCain’s “Celeb” ad as “racist” simply because it had two promiscuous white female celebrities in the begininng of it?  Well, it turns out that’s not ALL the ad was trying to imply … it’s actually much much more sinister than that, […]

 

Oops, he’s doing it again

**(Bumped to the top – newer posts appear below)** Well, Obama unjustly played the race card (more here) against the Clintons during the primary season and succeeded in painting them as closet racists, and now he’s unjustly doing it against McCain (via Memeo): “John McCain right now, he’s spending an awful lot of time talking about me,” Sen. […]

A trend?

A week ago, I posted about new polling numbers that were analyzed by the WaPo’s Chris Cillizza, which indicated that McCain was narrowing the gap in the polls in 4 battleground states: Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  CNN reports today that McCain has narrowed the gap in three more key states: But in what could […]

New McCain ad portrays Obama as a celebrity

Posted by: ST on July 30, 2008 at 8:23 pm » 5 Comments

I rarely post campaign ads, but this one is creating waves, so it’s worth posting: Note the brief images of Paris Hilton and Britney Spears at the beginning as the ad tries to portray Obama as a more a celebrity than presidential candidate.   I think the ad’s pretty on point, but apparently I’m just not “getting it” […]

Obama quote of the day (MORE: QUOTE DISPUTED)

Posted by: ST on July 30, 2008 at 10:15 am » 7 Comments

Via Dana Milbank (emphasis added on the quote): Barack Obama has long been his party’s presumptive nominee. Now he’s becoming its presumptuous nominee.

He ordered up […]

There’s been a lot of talk about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin over the last several weeks as people are weighing in on who they think McCain should pick as his VP running mate.  While I think she is short on experience at this stage in her political career, I believe she has a bright future in […]
