Friday open thread

Posted by: ST on October 24, 2008 at 11:05 am

I always look forward to Fridays but today I’m especially glad it’s here. It’s been a crazy week.

I’ll be back later this afternoon. Got a couple of stories to tell you about two different Obama supporter “road rage” incidents that have happened to me over the last two weeks, provoked apparently by the fact that I have an anti-Obama sticker on my bumper. The first incident I wrote off, but it’s happened again – this morning, in fact. I’m still very mad about it and if I write about it in detail right now I’ll use language I normally find inappropriate in any setting. Need to calm down first.

Quick note: MM’s following the story of the alleged political attack on a College Republican volunteer earlier this week in PA, and notes that the woman’s story deserves a healthy amount of skepticism, considering the facts we know so far. Let me know your thoughts about this in the comments section.

Back later.

    I was hesitant to log it, it just seemed too fa fetched. I decided to wait and see, and sure enough, turns out she lied.

    I don’t know what drives people.

    Apparently Freedom of the Press only applies when that Press kisses the a** of his holiness.

    Obama Campaign Cuts Off Interviews With Florida TV Station

    Barack Obama’s campaign killed all interviews with a Florida TV station after Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, faced tough and critical questions from a reporter at the Orlando station.

    Tough and critical questions?!?!? How dare they!!! It’s not like the guy is running for vice president….er, never mind.

    During a satellite video Thursday, WFTV’s Barbara West quoted Karl Marx and asked Biden how Obama’s comment to “Joe the Plumber” about spreading the wealth wasn’t being Marxist.

    “Are you joking?” Biden asked.

    West replied, “No.”

    Uh, no Joe. We really would like to know the difference between Obama’s economics and Karl Marx.

    Later in the interview West questioned Biden about his comments that if Obama wins the election next month, he would be tested early on as president and wanted to know if Biden was implying America was no longer the world’s leading power.

    “I don’t know who’s writing your questions” Biden asked her.

    What difference does that make, Joe, could you answer them please?

    The Obama camp then killed a WFTV interview with Biden’s wife Jill, according to an Orlando Sentinel blog.

    “This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign, according to the Sentinel.

    I can’t begin to imagine the blood curdling screams from the left if McCain had “cut all interviews” with a news station because he “didn’t like the questions”.

    I never thought I would see this day in my lifetime, in my country. I honestly feel that the decades of liberal education in this country are taking effect. We are about to see the first of many accomplishments of the left wing re-education camps, I mean, schools.
