  • When Obama was the nine-year-old boy-king of the Terrorists, in the 60s, he personally gave the order for Bill Ayers to nuke McCain’s best friend’s living room. [Top of the Ticket]
  • 100% of the Maverick’s dumb teevee commercials are negative. Only 1/3 of Obama’s are negative. [Marc Ambinder]
  • Palin rambles off all the prepositions she knows in addition to the phrase “New York Times” as her response to the question of why Obama’s first marriage to Bill Ayers has anything to do with anything. [Andrew Sullivan]
  • Hooray the White House is pink, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sarah Palin wants to remind you that Obama is still black. [DC Examiner]
  • McCain set fire to John Edwards’ father’s mill, which Americans have been using for centuries to sew the patriotism into flags. And then he shipped that burnt husk of a mill to China, just because he can. [Ben Smith]

    Pink White House?? Elle Woods returns to the capital to make Legally Blonde Three!

  • facehead

    It would be kinda cool if Obama ordered to paint the white house black when he gets in.

  • Tawmn

    Sad that McCain has sent all the dental floss jobs in Montana to the CHINEEEESE!

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    It seems like a bad idea to outsource the making of American flags to China. You know it won’t be long before they cut off the supply and replace it with the yellow star/red field item, just because they can.

    “Join Atlantic Fans on Facebook” – YES

    “Join Atlantic Fans on Craigslist” – NOOOO

    I thought the lights were RED, as in RED ALERT, “we don’t want no niggas livin here!”

    Meanwhile, Palin’s gibberish gives me a headache trying to read it.. I mean, really! I had severe ESL students that could put together more coherent, intelligent thoughts together. She sounds like she is a robot with a random phrase generator running @ full speed.

    And how about that ad spending, Obama’s gone ‘newclear’ in some states!! He is trying to spend Mccain into the poor house…

    [re=126849]facehead[/re]: Vogue was right. Black is the new black!

  • S.Luggo

    “It is pertinent, it’s important because when you consider Barack Obama’s reaction to and explanation to his association there, and without him being clear at all on what he knew and when he knew it, that I think kinda peaks into his ability to tell us the truth on, not only on association but perhaps other things also.”

    The above is a common example of what happens when Alaskan beauty queens attempt translate from the Inuit.

    …everboddy, th’obamaeister’s only half-black, r’member? he’s wat from th’waiss down, but thass th’part we doan never see… tho it does make wun wunder… oh,ne’ermand…

  • CrunchyKnee

    Chinese patriotism sewn into flags is a heckuva’ lot cheaper than that ‘Merican made kind. Think of the billionaires!

  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=126857]azw88[/re]: Red light = whore house. Or taker of lobbyist money. Same thing.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Wow — Sarah’s giving Casey Stengel a run for his money.

  • Serolf Divad

    LOL, that Obama ad reminds me of the American flag I bought not long ago to hang off my deck. The bag it came in stated “Flag proudly made in America. All other parts made in China;” all other parts being the flag pole and the plastic, faux-silver eagle that tops it. I felt only half ashamed of what had become of our manufacturing industry.

    Facts are useless in emergencies!

  • Fear of a Black Reagan

    I think we should evaluate ads as negative only if they have a negative effect.

    So McCain’s ads would only be negative if you’re black. Or non-Inuit living human.

  • jinmoom

    Sometimes Juli is so hip and young that I can’t understand what her headlines mean at all.

  • Sussemilch

    “Obama was the nine-year-old boy-king…”

    And McCain responded by having his neighborhood pal Manuel Noriega saturate Chicago with crack cocaine.

  • DemmeFatale


    Every election has these “undecided” imbeciles that want more “specifics” before they can decide. READ THE WEBSITES, idiots. The purpose of debates is not to spoon-feed illiterates.

    Too bad Tom Brokaw had so many “get off my lawn” moments last night.

    I can’t be the only one that is reminded of Jackie Robinson when confronted with the simple dignity of the Obamas and the enraged right-wingers.

    There, I feel better now.

    That, and they’re in the tank for libruls.

    [re=126879]jinmoom[/re]: btw I’m not hating on Juli, I’m just pointing out how old and uncool I am.

  • magic titty

    That ‘letter’ by Murtagh is pretty much the most vile screed I’ve ever read. No snark here.

  • bluebrazos

    Truth is stranger…Obama is going to make money off of the “that one” line.

    When Barack moves in we can call it the “The That One House.”

    Andrew Sullivan doesn’t know “peeks” from “peaks”?

    Are we sure that the pink White House isn’t to remind us of Obama’s ties to Bill Ayers? Why is breast cancer awareness pink? Does that mean Testicle Cancer Awareness is blue? Must we infantilize everything, just because we have a mental tot in the White House?

    Why am I asking all these questions? Isn’t it Yom Kippur, not Passover?

  • bluebrazos

    [re=126891]bluebrazos[/re]: Oops, jumped the gun. Might not be Obama making money, but you get the picture.

  • facehead

    This is interesting: A review in the NYT of Ayers’ memoir (NOT OSBOURNE COX!!!),

    Strangely (Spooky even) it was published on Sept. 11th, 2001 (wtf?),

    This seems to be where a lot of info about Ayers came out. Basically, he did a bunch of really bad things, admits to it, and got away with it all because the statute of limitations ran out.

  • S.Luggo
  • Cogito Ergo Bibo

    [re=126895]lawrenceofthedesert[/re]: He knew she meant “peeks.” Sullivan is in the tank.

    Reading any sort of attempt to transcribe a Paline quote makes me feel really sorry for anyone assigned to the task. Making actual sentences out of that drivel is an exercise in futility. I hereby sentence Barbie to diagram that reply. If she even know how to diagram a sentence.

  • magic titty

    [re=126899]facehead[/re]: That’s fine. Still has nothing to do with Barack Obama. Ever.

  • RonnyJim

    President Obamma is going to put up a pergola for his rose garden bill signings & decorate it with heavy cotton cloth for photo ops. DON’T YOU PEOPLE SEE?? HE’s Creating a MUSLIN TERRACE! And Michelle will help him – if she rips the sheets instead of cutting them with scissors it will prove she’s a MUSLIN TEARIST!

  • TeddyS

    Obama voted for an earmark for SCIENCE! Astrology, er, that kind of stuff. We don’t want uppity smart people running around learning things about nothing other than Inteligents Desine and then they’ll go out and encourage education in the second largest city in our great nation. Even “those ones” might learn to read. Sarah could’ve bought that SCIENCE overhand protector thingie on eBay for a lot less.
