I have no awards for last week yet. Soon to come!
Snugs, when you have graphics either post directly to this thread or freepmail me when they’re ready.
Good morning AB and All. Congratulations to last weeks winners and it appears today will be a good day here.
We are off to Georgetown Colorado today so I won’t be here. I will look in later this afternoon to see who’s having all the fun.
Looks like McCain finally joined the Losers-gang - Gore, Kerry & Rather (all of 'em never accept they LOST).
McCain's dismal debate performance proves it. Forget Kalid Sheik Mohammed proved that water-boarding worked and saved lives. He & Powell should be the deciding-authority of what is torture. Because of his pathetic behaviour, President had to make a deal with his own-party senator(which itself is odd) just to keep his mouth-shut.
He was saying Republicans defeat in 2006 was because of Katrina & Iraq debacle. Right, If President is responsible for Katrina debacle how come the near-wipeout of dems in Louisiana? People were believing Iraq is debacle because of his constant interruption & shouting (remember abu-ghraib) joining with MSM & dems constantly complaining Rumsfeld for everything.
Remember dems were hiding behind McCain for almost an year regarding detainee-interrogation methods? How conveniently he forget Powell destroying John Bolton & keeping quiet about his deputy's leak of Plame while letting WH take all the blame. Powell is the leading advisor for Hillary Clinton now - she revealed herself that & Powell was seen clapping his hands seating in front row in Clinton's Global Initiative summit.
One more important thing. Remember in 2000, when President chose Cheney as his VP McCain said - "VP's job is to attend funerals in 3rd world Countries". In the last debate, there was a question about Cheney's role. Instead, he was showing his anger about his 2000 defeat, saying he was more knowledgeable than President Bush in foreign policy & defense and he is the only person know about everything.
Well, PEOPLE REJECTED HIM & CHOSE PRESIDENT BUSH. Until McCain accept that Reality, he can live with Gore, Kerry & Rather in fools-paradise.
Slay the Nation could be fun today with reps from Obama’s and Hillary’s camps on.
Even dem. campaign people appear interesting than McCain. I rest my case.
Wolfson will be spinning like a top...
I pick a lot of New Hampshire radio stations and you should hear McCain’s radio ads. His big angle is he’ll fight against global warming.
I’d love to be a fly on the wall in that green room.
Let’s see what we have this week...
Fox News Sunday gives us Karl Rove as the guest of honor amd this is likely going to be the highlight of the week had it not been for the President’s appearance on Late Edition (more below). Three months out of office it will be worth noting whether or not his views have changed... but I’m sure someone in the MSM will be watching closely to see if anything Rove says can be twisted to make the headline “Rove criticizes Bush policy.” You know it’s coming.
The Dems will counter with Chris Van Hollen, and we know the speech already: failed Bush policies, no military solution, more health care for the children, yada yada yada...
I’m thinking Fred Smith is going to be the “Power Player of the Week.” Can the AP please quit listing him as a guest?
NBC has Jim Webb, who owes his job to the word “macaca.” (I’m sorry, but as racist and insensitive as they say that word is, it’s just so fun to say.) In a throwback to their classic style, they’re going to literally have Webb “meet the press—” specifically NBC’s own David Gregory and (surprisingly) David Brody, who’s a top reporter for Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network. (Speaking of Gregory, it’d be great to see whether or not Don Imus’s return to the air tomorrow comes up at the end of the show. As we all recall, Gregory went on the air with Imus more than a little loopy a while ago... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-BbjUSAD6w )
CBS has the return of John McCain. We know his gig, and if there’s anything we know about McCain it’s that we don’t know what’ll come out of his mouth next.
ABC has the Huckster continuing his tour of the Sunday talk shows. Both McCain and Huckabee have played this circuit like a fiddle and if I were to venture a guess (and Phssptok can probably back me up here) they’ve had by far the most Sunday interviews from the GOP side of the aisle.
CNN... whoa, hold up— hey, Snarlin’ Arlen! Welcome back, baby! We haven’t seen you in months! (I’m wondering where Leaky Leahy is, though.) Aside from that we have a collection Carl Levin and two longshot candidates in Dodd and Paul. Some sources are saying the President will appear, others no. We’ll just have to wait and see. Finally, they present us with Lt. General Raymond Odierno, one of the top generals in Iraq who orchestrated the invasion, Saddam’s capture, and the surge, all of which have gone far better than the MSM has planned. This guy is an excellent general and I’ll be watching what he has to say.
Ratings coming up...
Global Warming? Senate Republicans (up for retirement) might join with dems next on that as they lost on Iraq.
I bet his spiel on how well The Hildabeaste performed under pressure (hostage situation) will be particularly brown, steaming and pungent.
LOL. He’ll probably claim she was personally directing the cops on how to handle the situation.
Let’s see: 1) how much time they get and 2) whether or not Wolfson will go on a tirade about how Mark Penn was cancelled on FTN a couple of week’s ago.
Oh you can bet on the fact that Wolfson will take up 90% of the time.
Really great strategy during a GOP primary.
Dick Morris as Huckabee Campaign Manager - That would be fun too.
