Is this like when your gandparents send you a dollar for your 16th birthday?  I’m guessing whoever makes this new-fangled battery will patent it and buy an island and make Donald Trump their houseboy.

Editor’s note: no offense to grandparents or dollars.  I love them both.

Hey Ted, thanks for the comment and the heads up about Palin.  I haven’t heard much national buzz about her.  I mostly hear about Jindal, Romney and Crist.  For my own personal amusement … how about McCain and Romney standing next to each other day after day?  It might look like me and my ex-boyfriend (boyfriend of eleven days) did while getting our picture taken at a sweetheart’s dance in high school.  Uncomfortable smiles, noticeable distance. I imagine Romney trying to get closer to McCain and McCain telling him to back off while hiking Mitt’s magical Mormon underwear up into the most painful weggie ever to befall a public official.

This kind of sanctimonious, “I’m-so-disappointed-in-you” line is beyond annoying.  McCain says he is disturbed by the “breaking” of an unofficial “promise/pledge/pinky-swear” and  proclaims that we can no longer trust Obama.  Gee whiz Mickey, you seem so sad.  When I’m sad, I like to talk about my own campaign finance clisterphock.  Try it with me, “Hi my is John and I am totally gaming the system in a way sufficiently complex enough as to elude most media soundbites but it is nonetheless happening and fairly slimy.”  Hi John.

John McCain said today, “Let me be clear, under my administration Osama bin Laden will either be killed on the battlefield or executed.”  Does he want to be president or Jack Bauer?  I swear sometimes the republicans don’t know the difference.   Or care.

Oh wait.  It’s not that kind of recycling.  Well let me sit back and put on my big surprise face.

First opinion on this: Pawlenty makes McCain look really old.  Second opinion: Tiny Tim has always struck me as a tool.  Perhaps it was the hair.  Third opinion: our lieutenant governor is whatever is worse than a tool.  Fourth opinion: Timmy won’t help McCain in Minnesota.

The old September 10th mentality card.  I thought being scared into peeing your pants and thus being required to vote for a republican was soooo 2004.   John Kerry and Richard Clarke have countered this argument in short order which is good because this kind of fear-mongering BS has to be handled swiftly and forcefully.  It’s not sexy but reason must prevail.  It’s easier to be scared than to think and the Obama campaign has to move this argument from the bladder to brain every chance it gets.
