    Joe the Plumber was on Huckabee’s show:

    Mr. Huckabee said that Mr. Wurzelbacher only asked a question when Mr. Obama happened to stop by his current neighborhood a week ago. Mr. Huckabee asked how Mr. Wurzelbacher felt about the scrutiny he’d received.

    “It actually upsets me,” Mr. Wurzelbacher said. “I am a plumber, and just a plumber, and here Barack Obama or John McCain, I mean these guys are going to deal with some serious issues coming up shortly. The media’s worried about whether I paid my taxes, they’re worried about any number of silly things that have nothing to do with America. They really don’t. I asked a question. When you can’t ask a question to your leaders anymore, that gets scary. That bothers me.”

    That’s right Joe, you dared to question “the One”, and now you see the treatment you will get from this Democratic run “state” media. Talk about a warning shot. Even Ol’ Shotgun Cheney didn’t shoot to kill this bad. – Lorica

    Hollywood’s propaganda assault continues:

    Did ‘Family Guy’ Go Too Far With Nazi ‘McCain’ Pin?

    The animated sitcom ‘Family Guy’ is no stranger to controversy, but on Sunday night the show went into uncharted territory as it seemed to weigh in on the presidential race by likening the McCain/Palin ticket to the Nazi party in World War II.

    In one scene, the characters beat up and steal the uniforms of two Nazi officers. Stewie looks down at his Nazi uniform and notices a McCain/Palin campaign button attached to its lapel, remarking “Huh, that’s weird.”

    Very classy! I’m sure the condemnations from the left will begin shortly.

    The show’s creator, Seth MacFarlane, is an ardent supporter of Barack Obama. MacFarlane has given thousands to the Democratic presidential nominee and the Democratic Party, and even spoke at an Obama rally in Ohio earlier this month.

    You don’t say!! Why is it whenever someone criticizes his holiness Obama it’s a “right wing smear attack”, yet when trash like this comes around it’s “first amendment rights”!!

    Absolutely pathetic.

    Gunshots fired at McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express?

    If this turns out to be accurate it would mark another dangerous escalation in the campaign.
