PAY ATTENTION, LOCALS.

One week left, guys.

If you're in Illinois District 13, you should read up on the candidates. Only David Gill, Matt Goetten, and Tim Johnson remain in the race.

A fantastic breakdown by the Springfield Journal-Register about the race.

If you're left-leaning, you'll find good info in there about why Gill and not Goetten is the right guy. That is, of course, assuming that you support things like women's reproductive rights, gay marriage, and the rejection of corporate funding/meddling. Goetten is a centrist at best; Gill is an actual progressive.

I'll just assume that you won't be voting for Tim "Skeletor von Promisebreaker of Notdoinghisjobsville" Johnson.

Congressman Steve Israel, you were chosen at random by me.

But there are plenty of Democrats that I wanted to say this to.

Yeah, I said it to him via Twitter. Because there's no other way for a non-constituent to contact him.

That link should be valid for a few days, before the "tweets" vanish way far away into Twitter's belly.

Here's a list of congresspeople, if you want to tell yours why wasting time with Anthony Weiner's junk was a distraction by both Republicans AND Democrats from things that actually matter.

Love,

benjamin

I know some of these sound vague, but some are pretty damned clear; a list of things that the Republicans want to remove from the stimulus bill. They also want to cut taxes again at the same time, because you pay for things by making less money.

Now here, enjoy some fumetti while I go to the doctor for an arm check-up:




 

*sigh*

"My anti-crocodile spray has worked for OVER SEVEN YEARS."

Then the truth sneaks in as our pResident throws out two words that neatly sum up eight years of foreign policy.


Also, the Internet occasionally confounds me, such as when it asks me to:

I will forgive politicians' gaffes 90+ percent of the time. They have to talk A LOT and of course you're going to trip over words.

I guess I should just be proud that he managed to knock Lieberman's dick out of his mouth after last night's debate.

Wonder what Sarah thinks of his man-on-the-side. Is she just McCain's beard now?

THIS IS WHY I ALWAYS VOTE FOR HIM FOR PRESIDENT.




McCain puts campaign on hold to help with economic crisis, urges Obama to do same.

"There is a time and a place for Sarah Palin to be asked more questions about herself and her qualifications and this ain't either of 'em," McCain failed to add.

The media was allowed to observe Palin and Karzai for less than 30 seconds.
The media was allowed to observe Palin and Karzai for less than 30 seconds.

(CNN) — McCain-Palin campaign officials shifted course Tuesday after being informed by television news organizations that they would not broadcast footage of Sarah Palin’s meeting with Afghan leader Hamid Karzai Tuesday in New York — the Republican VP nominee’s first with a foreign leader — if a reporter was not allowed in to observe the pair.

CNN, which was the pool network for the event, informed the campaign of its decision. The network was then told a CNN producer would be allowed in the room to act as a media representative, just minutes before the photo op was scheduled to take place. However, print reporters and wire services were not allowed to observe the meeting, as they have been able to do at similar McCain events in the past.

The press only caught a brief glimpse of the vice presidential nominee. Palin was seated in a large chair a few feet from Karzai, with a table in between them. Seated slightly behind Palin were campaign foreign policy advisers Steve Biegun and Randy Scheunemann, who are accompanying the governor in her motorcade today.

As the pool entered, the Afghan president appeared to be telling Palin about his young son, who was born in January 2007.

Palin, her legs crossed and at one point patting her heart, was leaning in eagerly and smiling. Karzai, wearing his traditional clothes but without his trademark karakul hat, was also grinning while discussing the child. His remarks were mostly unintelligible as the noise from the clicking cameras drowned them out.

“What is his name?,” Palin asked.

“Mirwais,” Karzai responded. “Mirwais, which means, ‘The Light of the House.’”

“Oh nice,” Palin responded.

“He is the only one we have,” remarked Karzai.

After 29 seconds observing the meeting, CNN and other photographers covering the meeting were escorted out of the room.

Later, McCain-Palin press representatives chalked up the restrictions to a “mix-up, a miscommunication among staff.” The full pool — a print and wires reporter, along with a television producer — was then allowed in to observe Palin’s meeting with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe for 15-20 seconds.

Please
friend [profile] jblaque for a constant stream of truth and information about McCain and Palin that you can use to convince people who are "protesting by not voting" or are actually thinking of voting for them.

For the next month and a half, we are OBLIGATED to be superheroes.
"Increasingly it seems like voters can be split up into two camps: those who'll vote for the sort of person who names her kids things like "Trig" and "Piper", and those who won't.

It's a flippant way of putting it, but it's basically true: those who want someone average, someone like the people they know, and those who think a leader ought to be a little smarter, a little better than the rest of us." --

So I don't get told I'm only picking on Palin:

Dear John Mccain,



DO NOT PEDDLE YOUR PRECIOUS WARES IF WE CAN EASILY PROVE THEY'RE FAKE.

Love,

People Who Very Severely Dislike You
NO, GENTLEMEN, YOU LIE.


Just give me their addresses.

I'd like to visit them.

I'd like to call Karl Rove a douchebag to his face. I'll even give him a list of reasons why I'm doing it.

Oh, and seen in so many places, here's some info about Sarah Palin from a woman who lives in the town she's mayor of.

The town that's ONLY TWICE THE SIZE OF THE TOWN I GREW UP IN.

[livejournal.com profile] donchep  is right:

"You done pissed him off people. This is the pitbull you've been warned about. God, he's awesome."


[livejournal.com profile] city_of_dis provides an excellent view of what any Republicans who understand the concept of fear should look like while watching that:

"For -- for four days in Denver, the Democrats were afraid to use the words "Islamic terrorism."

I imagine they believe it is politically incorrect to say it. I think they believe it will insult someone. Please tell me, who are they insulting if they say "Islamic terrorism"? They are insulting terrorists." --- Rudy Giuliani

=========

HATE SPEECH IS HATE CRIME, RUDY GUILIANI!

MUSLIMS BOMBERS IN PALESTINE: 
TERRORISTS
IRAQI BOMBERS IN IRAQ: INSURGENTS
ISRAELI BOMBERS IN ISRAEL: FREEDOM FIGHTERS.

Don't get me started on those last two, but seriously, Rudy, do you rage against the ragheads every night in bed before falling into a fitful but satisfying sleep?

THEY'RE INSULTING TERRORISTS?!?!
IT'S WORSE IF YOU'RE MUSLIM?!?!?!


NNNNNNNNNGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!

"...as mayor, Palin continued to inject religious beliefs into her policy at times. "She asked the library how she could go about banning books," he says, because some voters thought they had inappropriate language in them. "The librarian was aghast." That woman, Mary Ellen Baker, couldn't be reached for comment, but news reports from the time show that Palin had threatened to fire Baker for not giving "full support" to the mayor." -- Time magazine

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE DICKING KIDDING ME.

"Republicans briefly stopped attacking Sen. Barack Obama for what they call his lack of foreign policy experience to note the historic significance of the United States nominating the first African-American for president.

"It's a tremendous night for America," said Ed Rollins, a Republican campaign consultant who has worked on high-profile political campaigns including Gov. Mike Huckabee's 2008 presidential bid.
"Obviously, my party wasn't going to do it [nominate a black candidate for the White House] so I'm glad Democrats did it," he said. "We're in a real close, real tight race. And this guy has a real shot at winning. At the end of the day, this is an extraordinary candidate."

"We can all share in how far we've come," said CNN conservative political analyst Amy Holmes, who is African-American.
