Does McCain even know about this? There’s so much that he can say about Hussein that he doesn’t. I’m beginning to be dissapointed in him. He’s missing too many opportunities to wipe him out once and for all. He said very little about Hussein undermining the Bush admin on troop withdrawals, he didn’t call out Obama’s $ from Fannie/Freddie, just too many things to list. Where is he????

OK, but it wasn’t evident. I apologize for rocketing off at you. This is such a frustrating situation and the Democrats are so damn corrupt!

Mac is working the phones in Virginia on the bailout...in other words, doing his job to save our country. Boy Wonder is off campaigning to pump his ego. I, too, would have liked Mac to slam Barry last night on the Iraq undermining and Fannie & Freddie...if he had been too aggressive, we would have cheered but the Independents might have thought him to be a bully. I'm sure he will get this out in his own way—perhaps they are working on getting confirmations.

Oh, and there are two articles on Drudge so he knows, he knows. And remember who is from Missouri--Rush and his family. And he will be more than happy to report this on Monday. Keep the faith. ;)

You spoke too soon. This ad just came out. He did mention it in the debate last night also.

Relax. Obama is going to lose and he is going to lose big.

I hope and pray you're right. But there seem to be a lot of supposedly intelligent people who are buying his BS. It's downright scary.

WOW!! I thought maybe you fabricated the Governor's statement. I could never imagine a governor saying "the stench of police state tactics" or "scandalous beyond words" or "Barack Obama needs to grow up." What an incredible slap-down! I love it. You can see the Governor's statement HERE.

What if someone runs an ad about Oafama’s effeminate, crack head days, the gay old days, when he wasn’t so uptight? Just kidding, I know he has had to overcome his Omomma, and a rough, racially confusing childhood, and other shortcomings, like his ears.

Nice idea, Mr. “Liberal”. People disagree with you, just sick the police on them. Another example of Democrats espousing certain ideals, and doing JUST THE OPPOSITE when it doesn’t suit them.

Please keep this up, Obama. It’s good for the people to see beforehand what you will be really like if elected.

I think people in Missouri should dare these thugs to arrest them for political speech. Those making the threats will be facing felony charges in a federal courtroom so fast, it’ll make their heads spin.

But I bet they can get your ISP address and find you. :(

So if you listen to Obama’s speeches — that is, for as long as I can stand his squeak measly little voice — I’m most of what he’s saying makes him culpable for arrest in Missouri, Pennsylvania and Ohio because he is making misleading statements.

Most recent, for instance, is that George Bush has gotten us into this hole and McCain was carrying a shovel. And the hole that “Bush got us into” happened to have started back in Carter’s days, was perpetuated by nothing other than Bill Clinton and then bequeathed to Bush.

Anything that Obama says t the contrary is a lie and misleading.

The new 'digital brownshirts'

Where is Al Gore when you need him? Three years ago, the former vice president blasted "digital brownshirts" who "harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the president." He meant the mortal threat to the Republic of bloggers and angry Republican e-mailers. But times change, and the digital legions are greater nowadays on Mr. Gore's side. Thus we don't hear much fretting at all about the Obama Action Wire, which, unlike the brownshirts of yore, is actually managed by Barack Obama's campaign to muzzle critical media.

Here's how it works. A message goes out over Barack Obama's Web site with the names, phone numbers and e-mails of editors and producers foolish enough to host Obama critics. With Mr. Obama's extensive digital following, and his extensive fund-raising and contact lists, shutting up the Democratic nominee's critics with a fraction of Mr. Obama's millions of supporters is relatively simple. The digital legions plug phone lines, crash servers and intimidate the advertisers of these media outlets. This must be another instance of the "new" politics that Mr. Obama frequently talks about.

The latest incident, reported in the Chicago Tribune, "orchestrated a massive stream of complaints on the phone lines of Tribune Co.-owned WGN-AM in Chicago. "The offense: The station hosted National Review's David Freddoso, author of 'The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate,' a fair and rigorous but adversarial examination of Mr. Obama's record. Surely, we can't have any of that.

"The Action Wire serves as a means of arming our supporters with the facts to take on those who spread lies about Barack Obama and respond forcefully with the truth, whether it's an author passing off fiction as biography, a Web site spreading baseless conspiracy theories or a TV station airing an ad that makes demonstrably false claims," Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt told the Tribune.

How Orwellian. Mr. LaBolt defends the very actions that prevent WGN-AM and others from airing the facts, as though obstructionism is an "airing of facts."

Note to the Obama campaign: Informed observers don't get "the facts" only from a political campaign. They read and listen to the independent media outlets - the same outlets the thin-skinned Mr. Obama is currently trying to quash.

Hello,

I would imagine that Drudge understands full well that his work, online, could be yanked and he could be prosecuted, to the full extent of the law, should this be allowed.

Did you catch what the video on KMOV stated: The O is a Christian (very debatable) and that he intends to lower taxes on 95% of the public (very, very, very debatable) as the complete truth.

This is more than frickin scary. I agreed yesterday to work on McCain's phone outreach program here in St. Louis Co. Should I be afraid? If I should, I do not care. Screw this and the brown shirts that wish to shut me up.

I would say more, but I would owe lots to the cuss jar.

Obama Campaign is still running the lying ad here in Virginia, where he claims that if McCain had had his way all the old people on Social Security would have lost their SS money in the stock market.

Even Factcheck had to admit the ad was a lie on multiple levels — first that NO proposal effected anybody over the age of 50, second that no proposal would cut anybody SS by more than 25%, and 3rd that only a small part of SS would ever be in private accounts.
