A turn in the polls
There is finally a lot of negative stuff about Obama making it into the national consciousness. It’s going to have an effect. Obama has always been the candidate of “no come-back” ability. If not for the financial crisis, he’d be getting his ass pounded right now. That crisis is fading as a factor, as everything fades quickly in this information age.
Arrogance, thy name is Obama
The arrogance is that a man as unqualified and out of his depth as Obama could consider himself worthy and ready of the most important job in the world, the job on which the lives of every human being in the world depend, quite literally and without exaggeration, is what is presumptuous and offensive about Obama’s hubris.
In the movie Educating Rita, a naive, honest, forthright young woman is educated to the point that she has a more erudite and polished way of expressing herself and appreciating literature, but she loses her purity and appealing freshness and vitality. When we meet her, she expresses herself in a unique voice and discovers the world of classical literature and poetry with wonder and describes it in her assignments in a very raw, vital, visceral and personal way.
Democrats never lose an election, they are always robbed
This cracked me up (via Wash Times)
The coalition of angry Clintonites has accused the Democratic Party of stealing the presidential nomination from Mrs. Clinton and were further outraged when Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama passed over Mrs. Clinton as his running mate in favor of Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware.
Many of these renegade Democrats vow to back likely Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain or sit out the election, despite Mrs. Clinton’s wholehearted endorsement of Mr. Obama and her speech Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention in which she made a plea for party unity.
Obama and his supporters get whiny when the press stop licking Obama’s balls and do their job
docweasel’s experience as a crime reporter, would certainly be good experience for covering the criminals who infest the political world, and yes, that’s weak, but we’re too tired and lazy to make a new image to fit in with this post, so here’s your thinly associated comic book cover we did 3 years ago — cllck to embiggen
The more the leftwingnuts whinge, the surer you can be that Obama took some serious damage tonight, on top of the Wright Stuff and BitterCling blood loss. And there’s a new article by a Democrat trendster saying Obama will certainly get an clutch cargo classic ass-whoopin’ this fall, the question is by how much?
By all accounts, Obama sucked at tonight’s debate. Righties like Marc Ambinder point out that yeah, the questions were rough and more on the personal level than on policy, but that the personal is at least as important as the policy stuff.
A president is a politician, first and foremost, not a policy wonk. He has people for that. The president has to have the political skills to get the public behind his policy, and the skills to manipulate, stroke and threaten the Congress into acting on it. If he can’t handle questions from news reporters, how is he going to handle foreign leaders during negotiations?
Clinton/Obama 2008 Dream Ticket a Nightmare Scenario for Obama
Hillary the gun nut, and are Hillary’s supporters warming to McCain as the enemy of their enemy?
a girl with gun much easier on the eyes than the Hildebeest
As the nutroots has coalesced around Obama, its become easier and easier to reconcile with Hillary, and feel fellow feeling for her as they bash her and defame her in the same way they have bashed Republicans for years. The enemy of my enemy and all that.
It has made me wonder if there is a collateral feeling on the part of Hillary defenders: since McCain rarely, if ever, attacks her these days, less even than she does him lately, I wonder does it follow that Hillary defenders are seeing Obama as more the enemy, and since McCain attacks him, the enemy of their enemy is…

They especially love to trash the government when the liberals are out of power. But they pretty much seem to think America is the Great Satan and the cause of all the injustice and evil in the world.
You’d have to say, most Hollywood stars, producers, writers and directors seem to despise this country and the people in it.
