I Approve This Message

I'm sleeping, all snuggly and warm, and The Spouse's alarm goes off. I don't mind. I still have half an hour before I get up.

I try to go back to sleep; the volume on his alarm clock is low enough to manage that. I'm almost there and then, eyes still closed, I blurt out "That's a lie!"

There is was, yet another sound bite of McPain telling people Barack "is going to raise your taxes".

Barack Obama is N.O.T. going to raise taxes on you unless you are one of the 5% wealthiest Americans. Show of hands: who here makes a quarter of a million dollars or more a year?

(crickets chirping)

That's what I thought.

Mr. Straight Talk is anything but. He and his trained chimp (yes, I called her a trained chimp but that's not sexist. I didn't say the chimp was wearing makeup) are lying out both sides of their mouths and falling all over their flip flops at a dizzying rate. These people are telling so many lies that even Karl Rove, Karl frakking Rove says they've gone too far. That's like Darth Vadar saying you're too mean.

All you can see now of the Straight Talk Express is tail lights. Whatever integrity John McCain had at the beginning of this contest is officially gone. And that's no lie.

Darth wasn't mean. He was misunderstood.

Karl Rove is a cylon.

Ba Ha Ha Ha (Note no W)

Yes, but how mean are they?

Watched Mad Money with Cramer yesterday. He blamed this whole banking melt down on changes in the SEC rules that encouraged the short sellers (peeps who make money when stocks go down)
to literally trash a stocks price. Like a feeding frenzy once it starts going down more pile on and they do it with margins (not real nmoney) so it goes further, faster. The philosophy is to have free trade with no govt. interferenc. This is the "no regulations academics" at their worst. This is another Enron scandal where any reasonable govt. would have stepped in and stopped this theft long ago. Better yet to have never let it happen.

Just like ENRON it hurts the middle class the worst. Mutual funds have dropped from 15 to 30%. Hope your retirement accounts are o.k. Anywho he ends his show by saying AIG was too big to let fail, and guess what, the next hour we get the announcement that the fed will save it. Yay, Cramer.

Hhhhmmm, hard to get meaner.

Peace

There's some kind of wierd phenomenon going on whereby the Democrats say one thing..anything,..and the Republican's immediately translate that into 'Wouldn't it be good for us if they actually said something else!..and then they just go ahead and act as if it were true.
Then I look at the polls,which generally show Obama and Mccain running about even,and I'm dumbfounded by the fact that half the people in this country appear to be buying it!..Very scary.

I always direct everyone, including Dear Husband (who has agreed not to discuss politics with me because he hearts Sarah Palin and that makes me froth at the mouth), to www.factcheck.org for a nonpartisan look at the various lies and exaggerations coming from both sides. In any case, I get the shivers when I think of Palin and foreign policy at the same time.

Sad state of affairs, the entire thing makes my stomach churn and my eyes bulge-

I can't wait for the debates!!! Joe might not be my first pick for VP, but I'm thinking Caribou Barbie s gonna come out of that looking like a complete idiot.

Of course it's a lie. the scary thing is that half of America seems to believe the lie. I don't get it.

We shall see. I personally thought that NO ONE would re-elect Bush for a second term, but I was wrong on that one, wasn't I?

And I'm sick of hearing that this or that politician is going to raise our taxes. Eventually, they ALL seem to end up raising our taxes, in one way or another. And if Obama WAS elected and he DID raise our taxes, so what? I'd rather use our tax money, higher or no, to pay for energy independence than war in Iraq. I'm willing to pay for things that I think are worth having.

Oh, and you can also check www.votesmart.org for the voting records of politicians. I have found it very . . . enlightening.

If John McCain loses, I can absolutely see him on some news program about a year from now admitting he was lying all the time. (I'm not even kidding.)

you gotta love editing tricks like elipses and brackets... you can turn anything into a quote. "Monica eats...[poo] and a side of [babies] with ketchup..."

"barack obama will raise taxes for [you]..."
