Does McCain in His "Closing Ad" Still Take A Shot At Obama?

Normally, a closing ad from a Presidential candidate focuses only on him or herself, and not him or herself's opponent.

With that being said, here is John McCain's closing ad, and it is very debatable as to whether he talks a shot at Barack Obama in the last sentence. You decide.

"Don't hope for a stronger America. Vote for one."

The Cinema for 10/31/08: Seth Rogen Is Soon Becoming Another Will Ferell

Photo from the movie, via the NY Daily News
Seth Rogen, i know you want to cash in from "Knocked Up" and "SuperBad", but please stop. You are over-saturating yourself, and this is the second movie in a row, after Pineapple Express, where your original and funny crude humor now just isn't that funny anymore.

Not a surprise most feel "ZAck and Miri" isn't that good:
I have nothing against the cheerfully crude nature of "Zack and Miri Make a Porno." Before Judd Apatow, before "South Park," even before the Farrelly brothers, it was Smith's "Clerks" that exposed the delirious potential of shock value.
But without the wit, raunchiness tends to feel uncomfortably forced. And the moments when "Z&M" works are, almost without exception, the ones that are more sweet than shocking. All the rest, frankly, feel like Apatow Lite.
But knowing Rogen, he is trying to cash in as much as possible. And he is headed on the …

From Mr.Moulitsas today:

Arizona Polling:
Research 2000 for Daily Kos. 10/28-30. Likely voters. MoE 4% (No trend lines)

McCain (R) 48
Obama (D) 47

Early voters (17 percent of sample)

McCain (R) 42
Obama (D) 54
It is so bad for the Arizona Senator that he has to do this.
McCain forced to campaign in Arizona on Monday. I bet he wishes he could spend the evening in Pennsylvania, Ohio, or Florida.
Not on that, but spending time in your own state the day before the last date of voting. Geez Louise.

The home state is already the straw showing how terrible McCain's chances are at this point. But factors in Georgia and North Dakota, traditional and usual Republican, Red State strongholds, also indicate ominous signs for the POW.

Georgia

The Obama Ad Onslaught, Overdrive

First, for those who may have missed the 30 minute ad spot, or "infomercial" (like myself.)

Touching stuff indeed.

And this morning, thanks to the great effort from the always excellent slinkerwink over at the Kos, The Democratic Presidental nominee released two more new ads.

First, a little snide at McCain and "Joe The (Fake) Plumber", with the script following it:

ANNCR: Something's happening in America.

In small towns and big cities.

People from every walk of life...uniting in common purpose.

Barack Obama. Endorsed by Warren Buffett and Colin Powell.

A leader who'll bring us together.

BO: We can choose hope over fear, and unity over division, the promise of change
over the power of the status quo.

That's how we'll emerge from this crisis stronger and more prosperous...as one nation; and as one people.

10/30/08- TWD's Agenda For The Day: SOP Chairman Shows How Out Of Touch He And His Party Is

From the great Jed Lewison:
NRSC Chairman John Ensign of Nevada not only essentially concedes defeat at the presidential level, but also blames voters for the GOP's failures, saying that they have "mistakenly" blamed Bush for the nation's economic woes. The real culprits, according to Ensign? Congressional Democrats and their "overregulation."


Lewison concludes:
Just another Republican living in the state of denial.
Sadly, that still is the case, for me, that is so hard to understand. How literally "out oft ouch" and insensitive prominent members of this party are at this point of their well-known deterioration is stunning to say the least.

Tired of "Socialist" Smears From McCain-Palin, Obama States: "I Shared My Toys in Kindergarden"

Hilarious stuff today from the Illinois Senator in Raleigh, North Carolina.

TPM's Greg Sargent:
Obama is using gentle humor and some un-threatening imagery to do this. He's reminding folks that McCain's efforts to paint the basic and thoroughly uncontroversial government function of redistribution (not to say the proposed tax hikes on the very rich) as frighteningly Marxist or socialist is about as wild-eyed and radical as sounding the commie alarm about kids sharing toys.

Another Damning Report Out of Alaska For Palin

Image
Via the euphoric (and gregariously titled) user kissmygrits at the Kos, here is what CBS reported today: Another embarrassing complaint of abuse of power from the disgraced Governor of Alaska.
CBS News has obtained a copy of the complaint that Frank Gwartney, a retired lineman in Anchorage filed last Friday, with Alaska’s Attorney General, Talis Colber in Juneau. “Palin ran on the platform of ethics, transparency and anti-corruption. I’m tired of the hypocrisy that exists in Government and people need to know the truth,” said Gwartney.

The complaint against Governor Palin, alleges Misuse of Official Position: “Gov. Palin attempted to and in fact did use her official position for personal gain by securing unwarranted benefits for her daughters...” All the allegations contained in the complaint are related to state reimbursed travel.

In Alaska, ethics complaints filed against the Governor are confidential. “We can neither confirm nor refute that a complaint has been filed against Governor …

10/29/08- TWD's Agenda For the Day, Part 2: Will Keith Olbermann Fire Back At Campbell Brown?

Last night, neo-CNN continued its petty attack on Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow by having the vapid Campbell Brown spit dishonest venom on Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" last night.

That venom was lumping Keith Olbermann with Bill O'Reilly as partisan "ideologues" who let the party's they support get in the way of giving the whole story, and that CNN is down the middle, like her gimmick "No Bias, No Bull" slogan of a show.

Here's the segment of Stewart last night (who showed why despite his tremendous qualities that he is still a comedian first before even being a real muckraking journalist by letting Brown go unchallenged on her ridiculous labeling of Olbermann) for those who may not have seen it yet:


Unlike some people who championed Brown around here for her interview with Tucker Bounds, or her "calling out" of the McCain campaign over the lack of interviews for Sarah Palin, or her taking offense on the position of "So…

Paul Pierce was certainly emotion tonight, as the Boston Celtics' kicked off their title defense and the 2008-09 NBA season with a gritty 90-85 win over LeBron and the Cavs. Pierce was probably the only player in mid-season form in the opening night contest, as he dropped 27 points. King James had 22 points in an understandably sloppy game to start the season. But may no mistake, the night's real highlight was the raising of the banner and the rings bestowed to this version of the Celtic club.

Out west, Portland Trail Blazer fans had their hearts almost come out when they saw Greg Oden pick up an injury right off the bat in their loss to the Lakers, 96-76. In his first professional game after missing last season because of his right knee, the 2007 No.1. pick felt pain in his right foot, and left the game late in the first half. It was the ugliest sign in a not so good opening night for the upstart Blazers, who have a lot of high expectati…

Photo from allhiphop.com
Last year at Boston's Jamn'n 94.5 FM's annual Monster Jam concert, Lil' Wayne was angry when his microphone was cut off during his performance. So dissatisfied was the rapper when this occurred, that he dropped the mic on stage and left abruptly in total disgust. The fans were not happy that his microphone was cut off, and it was not a good look for all parties at all.

Now, with that history given to you, fast forward to last night. Once again, just like last year, Lil Wayne is a massive part of Monster Jam. He was the co-headliner with Jay-Z, and all was going to be "a-ok."

Only that Lil Wayne didn't even perform. Worst, he didn't even show:
Last night (October 27), Wayne again no-showed in Boston for JAMN's 94.5 Monster Jam.

The clothes-diva news was one thing, and now this. (via the Kos diary of great david mizner)
In convo with Playbook, a top McCain adviser one-ups the priceless “diva” description, calling her “a whack job.”
Whether it is a former Mitt Romney aide spilling the beans here to smear Palin for Romney's chances in 2012, make no mistake about this: The damn is wide open. Even CNN and non-Keith/Rachel shows on MSNBC is covering the story.

Palin and McCain are fighting each other. All a week before Election Day.

10/28/08-TWD's Agenda For The Day: Fixed Propaganda Losing It By The Second

Image
They are just losing it over there in Murdoch land.

First, they were the nonsense filter between Mark Fudge and the McShame campaign pushing the Ashley Todd story.

Then, after Fudgie posts that Obama "wanted to redistribute wealth" on his site, Fixed ran with the story. Not only a major distortion, but a total desperate lie. Media Matters led to movement of the real story going on:
On-screen text on Fox News echoed the Drudge Report in falsely claiming that Sen. Barack Obama said it is a "tragedy" that the Supreme Court has not addressed wealth redistribution. In fact, the "tragedy" Obama identified during the interview was in what he said was the civil rights movement's overreliance on the courts to pursue political and economic justice.


Finally, nutty nut anchor Megyn Kelly showed how crazy and angry she is when she talks to Bill Burton, Obama's spokesman, yesterday. Boy, was it something to see:

With the Rays tying the game up at 2-2 all in the 6th, the rains were too much to bear for the rest of the evening. So, because of that, a World Series game has been suspeneded for the first time ever.

The game will resume tomorrow at 8pm on Tuesday, and it should set up an interesting dynamic of whether the Phillies can get off to the quick start in the bottom of the sixth when the game resumes tomorrow to finish off the Rays.

Or will Tampa Bay continue on its momentum track from the beginning of the sixth inning to do what they have to do in order to survive.

TPM's 100 Second Recap of the Day for 10/27/08

Always a classic to watch, especially Joe Biden's comment.

The Ugly of America, Part 7: Total correction, Palin Supporter Calls Obama "Redistributor", Not The N-Word

You know, it just isn't surprisingly or even shockingly anymore. It really isn't with this lady. From a rally on Sunday, just take a look:

Palin was so nervous and caught off by that supporter that she just ignored it and continued uttering her robotic talking points (until she becomes all "diva" like and does he own thing). But that is no excuse at all for her not saying a word, and letting that slip by without even a thought.

The Ugly of America, thanks in part to the ugliest campaign ever known to the American citizen.

MAJOR UPDATE : That person did not say the "N-word". Instead, she said Distributor" instead. I apologize for the terrible error in judgment there, and pushing a false report.

Sports Thread #1 for 10/27/08: Mike Singletary's Post Game Press Conference

Absolute classic. In his first game coaching the hapless 49ers, Mike Singletary was highly entertaining (and equally alarmingly old-school at the same time.)

As I talked to James yesterday (and as he pointed out so perfectly), Singletary never pointed out how Vernon Davis hustled back on the interception thrown by J.T O'Sullivan though.

And this, as I started all the top, just reeks of a legendary old school guy whose values and beliefs may not amalgamate well with the new generation of the NFL.

Though if there was anybody in this league who deserves a head coaching job, look no further than Singletary himself.

The Ugly of America, Part 6: Assasination Plan Thankfully Twarted

The ugly of America has a trickle down effect. And today, an unfortunate story about a plot to kill a number of black people, including Obama himself. Thankfully, it has been twarted:
A plot by two Neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinate Barack Obama and kill dozens of other African Americans has been foiled, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said Monday.

Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman, 18, of West Helena, Ark., were charged Friday with making threats against a presidential candidate, illegal possession of a sawed-off shotgun and conspiracy to rob a gun store.

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of the Nashville ATF field office, said the two men sought to go on a national killing spree that included an unnamed African-American school, with Obama as their final target.
John Lewis warned against this. Maybe John McCain should give him a major apology.

In Obama's Possible Last Speech As a Senator, Another Memorable Speech Was Witnessed

Image
If this was Barack Obama's last speech as a regular citizen in the United States of America today, then he certainly closed it out in the spectacular and inspiring fashion that has become a trademark custom of his legendary monologues.

Make no mistake, this speech today was just as great as the ones in Denver in late August, Lansing in July, St.Paul in June, Philadelphia in March, Iowa in January, Boston four years ago, and all in between.

It highlighted the problems of America, but most importantly, focused on how those problems in the past have not stopped the people of this great nation (and may I even say citizens of this world) from getting back up after being so down.


And honestly, I have even done this speech a disservice by just having a seven minute version of it.

The transcript is here for all to see, but let the sentiments of this post from this author continue.

It is indeed ugly, how the Department of Justice has become "Conservative Republican cronies" for a pathetic desperate party obsessed with supremacy and never willing to abdicate the power that the people of this nation don't want them to have.

They will try anything, and do anything, to literally defraud the people of this nation for their own means. It is un-American, un-Democratic, and un-humane from those in the party who preach about "Country First" an "We will protect you at all cost."

Instead, it is their own selfish butts who place themselves before anyone because they don't give a real damn about others. Lacking any altruistic quality, it is all about "them", and only "them."

The Sleep Tme and Rise "n"Shine Thread for 10/26-27/08: McCain Says He and Bush Share The Same Ideas

Probable the dumbest gaffe of them all from John McGaffe:

As Jed Lewison says:
Now let me just ask you a simple question: at this point in the campaign, is there anything stupider that John McCain could have said about his political philosophy than to admit that he shares it with George W. Bush?

Unfortunately, the media doesn't want you to know how stupid McCain's gaffe was. In fact, they are exonerating McCain himself.
Unfortunately, there has been very little news coverage of McCain's blunder, nor of Obama's response. At least as of the writing of this blog entry, what little coverage there was had missed the point, reporting that it was Obama who had tied McCain to Bush when in fact it was McCain who had tied McCain to Bush.
But, as you saw in the video. Obama-Biden won't let this go away so easily.

He pitched well. And he hit REAL WELL.

So well did Joe Blanton hit, that he became the first pitcher to homer in a World Series since 1974, when Oakland's Ken Holtzman did it. And fitting, Blanton's former team?

The Oakland A's.

Still, both me and James believe that the Rays will somehow beat Cole Hamels tomorrow and bring the series back to Tampa Bay (pending a great effort from Scott Kazmir). But even if they do win Game 5, with the way Evan Longeria and Carlos Pena are struggling horribly thus far (no hits for either of them in this series, and B.J Upton's bat has gone cold too), it seems that the Ray of hope for Joe Madden's side will have varnished before reaching the improbable ultimate goal.

Tonight was a back breaker to the Rays' chances, and it sets the stage for the Phillies to win their first title since 1980.

"Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom."

Biden Slams Out of Control Anchorwoman For Questioning If He Is A Marxist

Joe Biden has to reprimand an anchor by the name of Barbara West after he ridiculous line of questioning was too much for the Delaware Senator to handle.

(This is from Thursday by the way.)

For more reaction to this, please see the diary from robjnnyc at the Kos, including this interesting tibit:
Biden so disliked West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

Hey boys and girls (or really really big boys and guys), welcome to this "Satur"Day's installment of the Saturday Cartoon throwback Thread.

Another massive, critical Saturday in college football. In fact, and especially in the SEC and Big 12, that has been the case all season, and will be the rest of the way.

Surprisingly though, the biggest game of the day maybe Penn State and Ohio State in Columbus, since College Gameday decided to go there this week instead of being in Austin for the mammoth undefeated clash between Texas and Oklahoma State, and the elimination "Do or Die" game in the SEC between Georgia and LSU in Baton Rouge.

Make no mistake, we will have a quick preview of the Big 10 game a little later since it is at night time, but the duel 3:30 games of the Big 12 and SEC respectively highlight again how awesome these two conferences are.

No talk about a brutal schedule Texas has: Two weeks ago, it was Oklahoma. Last week, it was Missouri. Today, it is the Cowboys, who are desperate to end their ten game losi…

The Capital for 10/25/08: NY Times Joe Nocera Reports Paulson Possibly Playing Us Again

Image
Utterly shameful stuff that the New York Times Joe Nocera reported yesterday in regards to what is actually happening with the bailout money that the television media isn't covering. But that's typical of our corrupt television, Republican owned media (and General Electric isn't any better, no matter if they put Olbermann and Maddow in to make the "left" happy).

Back to this great, but very alarmingly, article from Nocera. It shows how Paulson is being slick King Henry again, and benefitting those who don't even need the money on Fall Street:
“Chase recently received $25 billion in federal funding. What effect will that have on the business side and will it change our strategic lending policy?”

It was Oct. 17, just four days after JPMorgan Chase’s chief executive, Jamie Dimon, agreed to take a $25 billion capital injection courtesy of the United States government, when a JPMorgan employee asked that question. It came toward the end of an employee-only conference…

10/25/08- TWD's Agenda For "Satur"Day: The Pending Schedule

Since it is "Satur"day, and we dont have an overal set agenda for the day to focus on, we shall make The Agenda's Pending Schedule be the set agenda for this October 25th day, So many things to cover, and so many things to do in little time.

From the world of sports, another big Saturday, with World Series Game 3 (which we sadly have not been able to cover on the site so far, and that is troubling)and another Showdown, "Do or Die" Saturday in college football. And yes, we will give special merit to game outside the SEC and BIg 12 today (since College Gameday is for sure showing Penn State-Ohio State love).

We shall also have our weekly Saturday Cartoon Throwback, along with the start of our "50 in 10" State Election Day Prediction Series, putting who is going to win which states and of course, be our elected officials for our government. (Note, I was so "down the middle" in that last sentence that I just had to laugh at that display of discl…

The Sleep Time and Rise "n" Shine for 10/24-25/08: Ignorance (And Stupidity) Abounds In This Women

Last night on MSNBC's Countdown, Richard Wolfe, one of the more benevolent, restrained men in broadcast/print journalism, almost couldn't hold back his usual placid demeanor over the latest mental incompetence of Sarah Palin yesterday. During her "policy making" speech for special needs children that had no detailed policy of any sort, Palin made fun of those "earmarks" about "Research on fruit flies in Paris." Only her understanding of that specific earmark was about as low as her knowledge of what the V.P actually does.

Correction, it is lower. Watch.

Wolfe is tired of the championing of ignorance from not only this woman, but the Republican Party itself. And the fact that this is one of two major parties in America revelling in making fun of important programs such as this is scary.

I'll just say it: The dummy is so damn embarrassing for this nation. She is corrupt, mean, vindictive, and just a person who is a pathetic role model for anyone t…

The Weekly "This is How We Do It" Friday Night Post

You should already know what it is by now:

Music Thread #2 for 10/24/08: The Flashbacks #1 and #2- TLC ("No Scrubs"). Plus, The Hilarious Response by Sporty Thieves "No Pigeons"

1998 was just a massive year in music (which sadly, can't be said about a decade later at this moment). Part of the explosion, especially in the urban world, factored in between TLC's comeback hit of prominence "No Scrubs", and the hilarious response video from rap group Spotty Thieves titled "No Pigeons."

It was the legitimate, battle of the sexes "wa" being waged, and the fight back from Spotty thieves really added to the legend of "No Scrubs" and the mammoth success of the group's long awaited second album "FanMail."

First, here's "No Scrubs"


And now, the response video from Spotty Thieves. And through they never popped off again after this, educated yourself on them if you don't know.

The Cinema for 10/24/08: The Asinine High School Musical Hits The Big Screen. Ugggggggggh

The always excellent columnist Elizabeth Weizman of the New York Daily News gets it perfectly right with her title to her review of this movie:
'High School Musical 3' is reliably cheesy
It is only for the kids, and that's it. Hopefully, this movie won't have another installment on the big screen. It just needs to stay happily cheesy at happily cheesy Disney, where it belongs.

(Photo from moviesmedia.ign.com) Meagan Good again lowers herself as an actress in another terrible role, in another terrible movie.
And speaking of staying put, why in the hell is there another "Saw" movie out? There's already five of these things.

Goodness gracious.

Again, the excellent Weizman sums up how terrible the fifth installment is:It's time to acknowledge that killing off your lead is a major tactical error in an ongoing franchise. Next October, the filmmakers either need to figure out a way to bring Bell back for real, or stop torturing fans with p…
