The question was simple: Why are the Democrats so afraid of Palin and her popularity?
The answer was astonishing.
“You got to be kind to the disabled,” Rangel said.
You’d think he’d drop it at that. But he goes on, using a SNL joke as fact:
CBS 2 HD: “She’s disabled?”
Rangel: “There’s no question about it politically. It’s a nightmare to think that a person’s foreign policy is based on their ability to look at Russia from where they live.
Among the many reacting, the advocates for the disabled had the best comeback
“It makes me feel as if he’s trying to put her down, trying to say she’s not good for the presidency or the vice presidency,” said Michael Imperiale of Disabled In Action Of Metropolitan N.Y.
“A disabled president ran this country. He was disabled. His name was Roosevelt.”
There was a response from McCain campaign as well.
Update on Rangel
Ironical utterance while his car was being towed away
“I told you I am not discussing that,” Rangel told The Post yesterday.
“I want to be kind and gentle – please let me be.”
Filing this also under Palin derangement Syndrome – I had to cover it, but not make an entry.
Media is gushing over Sandra Bernhard’s cool new show:
“she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting.”
How so? What is she saying?
Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers
Sandra has black brothers? I guess you get them with the entry in the Obama cult
Funny how I still get chills remembering Jesse Helms’ promise that if Clinton comes to his state, his people would shoot him
Don’t you f***** reference the Old Testament, b****. Stay with your new Goyish, crappy, shiksa, funky, bulls***! [loud laughter] Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you b****! [laughter, cheering, applause]
Yes, we have left it open for interpretation. It is no longer taken literally, you whore in your f***** New Vision cheap-a$$ plastic glasses and your hair up. [laughter] A Tina Fey, Megan Malele [ph] broke-down, bulls*** moment.
There’s a video too
This, BTW removes any doubt I had about who Bushco wants to win this election
A Bush administration official with knowledge of the meeting says that during the meeting Obama stressed to Maliki that he would not interfere with President Bush’s negotiations concerning the US troop presence in Iraq, and that he supports the Bush administration’s position on the need to negotiate as soon as possible the Status of Forces Agreement, which deals with among other matters US troops having immunity from local prosecution.
I already knew that Hagel (majority shareholder in ES&S) was an Obama supporter. Now more comes to light. Explains the media.
Which is strange as it contradicts Obama’s own words
The point is that Obama new that you couldnt split the 2 agreements. So jumped on one that “perhaps” you could put off and at the same time knock the knees out from the other:
That Obama was aware that the two accords couldn’ t be separated is clear in his words to NBC:
So basically he knew that putting one off would inevitably put off the other. That’s like me calling my mechanic and asking him to put off taking out the heads from the motor but go ahead and replace the pistons.
Update September 24
“A few moments ago, President Bush called Senator Obama and asked him to attend a meeting in Washington tomorrow, which he agreed to do.
Update October 10
Mr. Obama’s conversations with the Iraqi leaders, confirmed to The Washington Times by his campaign aides, began just two weeks after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in June and stirred controversy over the appropriateness of a White House candidate’s contacts with foreign governments while the sitting president is conducting a war.
Update October 29
It appears that W’s very partisan DOJ enables another theft for BO
LA Times blog reports the record numbers
An estimated 4.921 million folks tuned in on Wednesday to hear Palin
which were second only to…
The only higher viewership this year for Hannity & Colmes — 4.948 million — was on Sept. 3. And what was happening that night? The nation was awaiting Palin’s speech to the Republican National Convention.
Here’s how the competition did
FNC’s Hannity & Colmes: 4,921,000 viewers (1,391,000 in the 25-54 demo).
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow: 1,716,000 viewers (635,000 in the 25-54).
CNN’s Larry King: 1,646,000 viewers (630,000 in the 25-54).
Gee, maybe in light of those numbers Fox might reconsider that temporary truce they reached with Obama….Unfortunately, when it comes to propaganda, ratings are not an issue
I couldn’t improve on the original title Jonathan Martin came up with
“And today he accused me of not supporting what the Treasury and the Federal Reserve Bank did with AIG despite no evidence whatsoever that that’s what I had said.”
To recap, when I wrote earlier today that Obama supported the bailout, I quickly was instructed by his staff that this was not the case. He just didn’t oppose it, I was told.
Like he used to do in the debates with Hillary, coming in the second and saying “What she said”, Obama finally responds to the crisis – after Hillary, McCain and even Bush did it, by saying “what they said”
Barack Obama’s campaign rally in Coral Gables, Florida Friday was interrupted by a group of about 10 African-American protesters holding signs that called themselves, “Blacks Against Obama.”
Obama originally said the protesters could stay inside the event, but they were escorted out when they would not stop shouting.
Poor media! The protesters were Black – so the accusations of racism are out. I’m sure they’ll think of something! Meanwhile, sexism and bigotry carry the message. Couldn’t have happened to a more hypocritical speaker.
But it’s OK, as Obama wins the football buddy contest over McCain – so, sexism is appreciated
