Hi, Morgan! I’m in Denver right now! You are quite right. This is the last day to donate to the McCain campaign. I sent them money last night. This will help them with expenses incurred in the primary season.

Donations after today need to go to the RNC or 501c3 groups supporting the Republicans.

McCain is returning every question to Wallace like he is playing at the US Open.

Every topic, and Wallace has been hard-hitting, has been returned quickly and with force.

Just DAMN!!!

What about Obama's new "Voice" in politics? How he was above all that, for "Change", and against the usual attacks and distortions? Let's see, can't talk about his ears, his church, his reverend, his terrorist political allies, who financed his house, his wife, his wife's alleged new-found love of "this country", his color, his religion, his father, his brother, his muslim upbringing in Indonesia, his birth certificate.... All attacks if brought up, and unfair, mean-spirited, and typical.

He's above all that.

And now these dastardly attacks on Palin.

Yup, Obama and his followers are certainly the same old smear and attack crowd they're so against.

obamby had been sworn in(don't know if it was State Senate or Federal) by placing his hand on the Koran.

That rumor has been out a long time. It has taken several forms. One of the early versions said he was sworn in to his US Senate position using a Koran.

So far, no one seems to have shown any proof.

Exactly,and as poorly as that law suit by lawyer Phil Berg over bomas actual birthplace and legitimacy was put together it looks like it will be heard in Penn.,

Although I am still very suspicious of whether it was ever designed to get to the truth or just put Bomas true identity to rest and keep it well hidden. We shall see.

F&F just had 2 LA delegates on. They got their homes ready, and their families out, then came to the convention.

Just 'cuz they sprang to mind, a couple of links...

From '05...

And recently, on fellow 'Rat Corrine Brown...

This is what I see happening, the story is mophing from reporters salivating over Katrina II into reporter dispair over the fact the REPUBLICAN Governor is doing a better job than the prior Democrat Governor.

By the way what is the senator of LA doing? answer NOTHING.
Senators are meaningless.

Pretty good interview by McCain. He drove home that Palin has executive experience and has actually fought for change and against corruption. Wallace asked hard questions and, other than a couple of minor flubs, he handled them well (one flub was that while Palin was governor, Obama was a community organizer - I THOUGHT that is what he said, he probably meant to say when Palin was mayor, Obama was a community organizer).

And when Wallace asked if McCain was challenging Obama's patriotism, McCain said no, he is challenging Obama's judgement. McCain drilled on the point that Obama was present in the Senate but refused to vote on the resolution in the Senate condemning the Moveon.org Betray-us ad. And that Obama still refuses to admit the surge worked.

True, and in addition there are constant complaints by well placed journalists that the web is constantly being cleansed of most info dealing with Boma. The web scrubbers ar definitely working over time on his behalf.

According to dims/DBM, the pubbies are the ones who send out talking points. That just shows me who really does it.

EEEEEEE

They always accuse GOPs of doing what they do. Their accusations might as well be taken as their form of exposition of what they do.

What I find so interesting is how Ray Nagin et al are suddenly acting like they SHOULD have during Katrina.

Did you all hear that Nagin told New Orleans residents that if they don’t get out they better have an axe. Cause THEIR ROOF will be their only way out!

The city’s not going to rescue anyone, it’s going to assume any citizens roaming the streets are criminals, it’s not going to risk rescuer lives to save those who don’t heed the warning.

There are buses (NOT under water) and plenty of transportation to pick up people with no means. Phone numbers for help are widely available. They’ve got lots of time and the citizens need to evacuate.

Plus there’s Bobby Jindal who is missing the opportunity of a lifetime to speak at the Republican convention but he’s staying firm. As he should and we’d expect nothing less. Still, I’m not convinced that Biden would miss HIS chance to speak should a hurricane be bearing down on Delaware. Maybe he would but from a Republican we expect nothing less.

After the dust clears from Gustav I predict the lies about Katrina being a federal disaster will be laid to rest.

The actions of the powers-that-be for Hurrican Gustav will lay lie in the very obvious manner in the difference in how the two hurricanes were handled LOCALLY.

Brit when asked if it was a smart pick or a risky pick, and he said both. He stated that the GOP base was absolutely fired up by the pick. She appeals to gun-rights voters, pro-lifers, economic conservatives and the reform minded. And that McCain will need a solid ground game that exceeds Bush/Rove’s game in 2004, and he didn’t have the foot soldiers until this pick. The risk is that Palin will flame out.

OMG - Juan just said he doesn’t want to hear conservatives complain about affirmative action again. And said that Palin had no experience at all - even though Chris Wallace led in with the fact that Obama doesn’t mave much experience either. And then just continued to sidestep the comparison.

Juan Williams, “This woman has no experience. Zero.”

That's because they believe the only real experience is to be had in DC. What the rest of us do out in the part of America that doesn't matter, the small towns and all that, is not important. But that is one of the things Americans are going to like about this. We are sick to death of DC as you can see from the congressional approval ratings. We don't want more of that, and that is just what Biden gives us.

Mara dwelled on the gender issue. Said that Palin would appeal to the Appalachian Belt voters, but they wouldn't vote for Obama anyway (she might as well have just called 'em out as racist crackers, but she's too slick for that).

As always, the panel misses the key point when it comes to bread-and-butter flyover country issues (like they did with the illegal immigration debate). Palin will appeal to Reagan Dems, no matter what their gender. And she is a tremendous appeal to those who are sick of corruption but don't know how to go about fighting. Sarah has shown how it's done. Smoke that, Obama.

On ABC, Lindsey Graham reverses the questions on Palin’s experience and brings up Obama’s lack of experience.

John Kerry says Palin will be another Cheney as V.P.

On the panel, Sam Donaldson is ready to punch out Cokie Roberts for talking positively about Palin.

Now take it easy on those of us in the Badger State. Sure, our governor is a liberal as is his lt. governor, but we ignore them like you do. There are a lot of great Wisconsinites who wholeheardedly support Conservative ideals so let's not pick on states. Okay?

actually Nagin is offering the same help he offered last time.

Essentially THIS TIME Nagin is admiting he can do nothing to help.

The evacuation and emergency managment is all on the state level. (somethng that was absent last time)

The only real difference this time is that he is giving police “goon squad” authority for the 10% who ride out the storm.

There are also 7000 National Guardsmen activated. That was the worst problem with Blanco, when she wouldn’t call the Guard or give President Bush permission to use Federal Troops. She was taking advice from Clinton’s head of FEMA, and they were gambling the lives of NOLAers for political purposes.

Guys, there is a report somewhere about Biden meeting with his foreign relations committee after 9/11 where he is just flailing around and he admits it and then comes up with the idea of sending a huge check to Iran!!!!

I can’t remember where I saw this, but I think it is huge. He’s supposed to have all of this “experience” and he didn’t have a clue what to do and the only idea he came up with was ridiculous.

I would bet the farm that Palin would not be flailing around like that.
