Political News That Is Not About Joe Biden

by Juli Weiner

  • If John McCain were tortured, that would mean opening up a freezing, dark can of sexually humiliated and sleep-deprived worms. [Andrew Sullivan]
  • John McCain is the President of house pets. [The Corner]
  • Howard Dean stress eats M&Ms at an airport Holiday Inn. [Yeas and Nays]
  • Age-inflation victim John McCain is actually middle-aged,
    which is why his chief economic adviser wants everyone to work until
    they are 142, or dead. [Democracy in America]
  • Rev. Wright’s half-real new book will just be about the boring history of Obama’s Muslim Church. [Top of the Ticket]
  • Obama caught a luxurious cold in the resort town of Hawaii and is trying to infect New Mexico. [Ben Smith]

Hi Juli, welcome, you’re new here, Barry doesn’t get luxurious colds honey, he gets elitist colds.

The Real JR Revisted August 19, 2008 at 4:45 pm

Yeah. As a NYC Subway rider, I read he wiped his nose then shook a hand and totally went ew.

Yes, I ew’ed.

Since when is The Clap considered a cold?

ManchuCandidate August 19, 2008 at 4:47 pm

McCain’s ahead of Obama with pet owners (dogs and cats). It means several things:
1) Crazee Cat ladies luvs their Walnuts (No shock, see PUMAs.)
2) Hunters loves their Walnuts (Again, Walnuts has been known to bring down flying things, too.)
3) Because he’s a Repub, it means that the bestiality vote’s a lock for Walnuts.

More cowbell.

Not all of us have longer life expectancies. I, for one, with all the drinking, smoking, and buttsex I have, am slated to die in about, oh, tomorrow. Can I collect social security now?

bitchincamaro August 19, 2008 at 4:56 pm

I see what you did there Mr. Sullivan, and I heart you for it.

Neilist August 19, 2008 at 4:58 pm

Andrew Sullivan is ready to “torture” John “Tie Me Up/Tie Me Down!” McCain anytime the latter can make it to the “Sully-Dungeon” located underneath the Altantic’s office.

(Andy looks really cute in that little People’s Liberation Army uniform he had tailored up.)

SayItWithWookies August 19, 2008 at 5:00 pm

So which old-age-exploitative realm of industry did McCain’s economic guy lobby for? That is the question.

TGY August 19, 2008 at 5:09 pm

When Hopey catches a cold, New Mexico sneezes or somesuch.

RuperttheBear August 19, 2008 at 5:09 pm

That’s a big can of worms. FIVE AND A HALF YEARS, ALAN big.

Canmon (the Inadequate) August 19, 2008 at 5:09 pm

[re=63349]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Maybe it’s because Obama ate a dog and wrote about it in “Dreams from my Father”.

TGY August 19, 2008 at 5:44 pm

Also, pet owners are inured to the presence of shit (or poetically inured to manure, whatevs).

Did I miss a photo of our new intern, Juli?

‘Coz I missed the first photo of SKS when she signed on, and don’t want to repeat that mistake.

And horndog guys….

Good job, Juli. You are hyphenating liberally, which is the third leg of the snark stool.

GayInMaine August 19, 2008 at 6:27 pm

Juli! You came back!

I see you still haven’t found the lost ‘e’, though. Have you looked under the bed?

S.Luggo August 19, 2008 at 6:41 pm

— [T]he idea of indexing [social security eligibility] for longevity—making automatic adjustment in the retirement age to reflect increases in life expectancy—has one important proponent. His name is Douglas Holt-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office, and the chief economic adviser to John McCain. —
I drink, I smoke, I drive with my eyes shut and with live bees in my mouth. Does this mean that I became eligible for SS benefits ten years ago?

Hey Barnard,
“Everyone” is a singular pronoun.

[re=63490]GayInMaine[/re]: It’s a Wonkette rule that employees must donate a letter from their given names to the less fortunate. Just ask Ken[t] Layne, Jim[i] Newell or Sara[h] K. Smith.
