Invitations to the rally were sent out to people [...]

McCain Staffers Argue Against Sarah Palin's Fitness to be President

There was a lot of journalistic chatter this past weekend about comments by leaders of the McCain-Palin campaign in which they referred to Sarah Palin as a “rogue” and a “diva,” but most of that talk was focused on the implication of infighting within the Republican presidential campaign. That sort of processual story may be [...]

Voting in Ohio: Desires, Wants, and Imperatives. My Vote Goes To…

As I’ve explained lately, I’ve been an undecided voter in a presidential swing state for the first time in my life. Well, I’ve decided.

There are a lot of things I want out of this election, things I’m not going to get. I want a presidential candidate who is capable of carrying out the duties [...]

Swing This! Help this Ohio Voter Decide between Nader, Moore and Obama

To the right you can see my absentee ballot for the state of Ohio. I’ve requested it so that I can vote by mail to keep the lines short for everyone else on Election Day; four years ago in my precinct the lines stretched for hours.

Latest Slogan for McCain and Palin is Alcoholic: This Time Will Be Different!

Last night, I encountered the latest McCain-Palin slogan on their campaign website:

Peregrin Wood has already covered the creepy cult-like aspects of the phrase “Country First.” But what about “Reform, Prosperity, Peace?”

Reform? Under the rule of George W. Bush and the Republican-controlled Congress, consumer protections were dismantled, civil liberties squashed, lobbyists hugged, ethics [...]

Thomas Muthee Delivers Sermon: Why Sarah Palin for Higher Political Office?

Yesterday we posted raw video and a transcript of the witch hunter Thomas Muthee explaining the religious agenda for Sarah Palin in politics.

Since the raw video is a bit long (and Muthee a bit long-winded), I’ve made a recut version highlighting the central themes of Muthee’s sermon and adding written commentary for emphasis. [...]

McCain and Palin Scrape for Ohio Audience

For a couple of days now, the presidential campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin has been sending me e-mails urging me to come to Vienna, Ohio to help demonstrate support for their ticket. If I would sign up online to get a ticket to see their ticket, staffers wrote, that sure would be great.

McCain Campaign Thinks of Sarah Palin in Puppy, Child or Slave Terms

While the McCain campaign complains that Americans asking questions are not treating Sarah Palin in the regal manner a Queen deserves, consider how the McCain campaign itself thinks of Sarah Palin. John McCain’s senior adviser Charles Black described her relationship to John McCain in this way:

She’s going to learn national security at the foot [...]
