Totally Mavaricky

So after the glow of the most watched nomination acceptance speech in history, John McCain "zings" one to the punditry: Announcing his pick for VP, a greenhorn govenor from the 47th most populist state in the union. You can see the smirk on McCain's face as he watches her accept her role as his VP.

You know on this blog I like to quote John Cole. Here's what I believe is the reason for McCain's pick: "Really, the only way I think this helps the ticket is that the McCain campaign can now feign outrage over alleged sexist remarks at the same time they are on the fainting couches decrying some mythical slight to McCain’s honor."

This is the most cynical VP choice he could have used. Of course the MSM thinks his pick is his "roll of the dice", his maverickness manifest. God save us all.

Thought For Today

"the GOP has become a lawless party of criminals and reprobates"...John Cole

Sums it up for me.

I Don't Think This Will Help

John McCain wants to announce his VP choice on this 72nd birthday. I don't think I would do anything to point out the fact that I am 72 years old while running for President of the United States.

People might sit up and take notice.

Another Right-Wing Nut?

This would never happen at a Republican Party Headquarters.

He would know at least one person there would be packin' heat.

Beware The Wrinkly White Haired Dudes...

I noticed something in the editorial section of today's Memphis Commercial Appeal. See if you can see what it is.
Then I watched Karl "King Maker" Rove on CBS' Face the Nation. I don't know if anyone else noticed that he mentioned the editorial pages in today's newspapers? It's the old Rovian one-two punch we have seen in the last 2 election cycles. All Karl needed was a softball interviewer like Bob Schiefer who he knew would not challenge him on anything he said. You will hear a lot of references to the "editorial pages" of the Washington Post and the New York Times this week.
Also notice how he cut the legs out from under Gov. Tim Kaine who was on the show earlier and is on Obama's short list for Vice-President. He essentially said that if Obama picks Kaine it will be purely a political move.
The fact that this bloated pig-faced bastard is even on my TeeVee on a Sunday morning instead of a jail cell is beyond me.

I just watched John McCain deliver a speach for the Urban League in Fla. Afterwords during the question and answer period when asked about high gas prices he said (and I am paraphrasing here) , " I was just in California and had a meeting with the oil executives and they told me that with off-shore drilling they can get the oil they need into the pipeline to get us off of foreign oil. The price of oil and gasoline will fall very rapidly."

Here is my question. What would be the oil companies incentive to deliver this oil if it is going to drop the price? Why would any company want to make less money? For the public good? Please.

McCain: In the Tank for Big Oil.
