Open Thread - 7/21

Ben Smith at Politico summarizes today with two pictures. It's a huge ouch for McCain. No Dukakis tank moment for Obama. McCain looks like he's tooling around with Thurston Howell III, but it's actually a very tan Daddy Bush wearing a turtleneck in July.

Obama looks presidential and McCain...well...McCain looks like a tool.

What's on your mind today?




Perhaps McCain was discussing the Iraq/Pakistan border with Bush. Perhaps he can go visit it with another Blackwater escort like the one he had in Mexico.

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.


I'd guess most of us think we're already pundits, of sorts. Not that the mainstream media seem all impressed.

Thanks for stopping by. I miss the Dome, but between the Pat McCrory love-fest and that FFC guy, it's gotten kind of hard to take.

Does anyone know where Dean will be Friday?

I want to make sure I harass him enough on not forgetting Mississippi while I get the chance :D

Our children need to know that some people fought back, when others collaborated.

I couldn't help noticing

That in yesterdays (or was it Sunday's?) paper, an article about the fact that Dean was coming to town was entitled,
"Dean Screams into Town."

I couldn't help thinking that was a little over-the-top for a serious newspaper. I'd figure it for Wonkette, but a newspaper that purports to be objective? Not so much.

Good catch, Bru

"Objective" indeed.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

So he was before the war before he was agin' it

before he was for it....or something like that. Unbelievable..

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.
