The party of "honor"

The party of true patriots trying to scare Jews.

Well, when you've got nothing, nada, zip, to run on but theories and ideology which has proven utter failures and led to disasterous consequences, how the heck do you run a campaign?

Well, you lie, smear, lie some more, distort, smear, distract, bullshit, do everything but talk about issues, hide your candidate from the press, and do stuff like the above.

Yep, McCain. He's got so much honor, he's full of it.

At least a few of John McCain's many friends in the media are now starting to turn on him. Check out Richard Cohen's column in the Washington Post -here. Mr. Cohen claims he admired what he perceived to be McCain's idealism and code of honor. Cohen no longer sees those qualities in McCain.

Very true Dave,

There were quite a few scathing commentaries on Palin this weekend, including not only Herbert and Pollitt, but Paul Krugman, Mark Rich, and Cohen.

Seems like a few reporters have decided not to drink the Kool-aid this time around.

I have never heard of any of these reporters. But since you are quoting the heavyweights, here's a better "commentary":
Today I rode the elevator with a first-time voter,18 years old, and she asked me privately who I was voting for and I told her, without a doubt: McCain. I told her that we need a "President" for this country. I told her that I have read up on McCain and I that I've met him and that I know he's the right man for the job. And you know what? This 18 year old girl started nodding and she confided to me that she too was voting for McCain too and that she just doesn't trust Obama, that he “keeps lying about everything” (Her words, not mine) I thought later that she never would have admitted this around her peers. I wish that I were as smart as this kid back when I was 18.

It looks as if the phone # in the article is being used by a rogue not connected with Central Research Services. About a year ago, people were being harassed by push polls from that same #, only then the calls appeared to come from the Obama camp. Others are currently reporting calls from that #, but when they answer, the caller hangs up; some report this happening over and over daily every 15 min. until 9 pm. Central Research Services in NYC is a legit company, so ISTM various others are using that # for various forms of telephone harassment.

Yes media needs to hammer McCain and Palin on all there lies? Why do candidates get away with it. He discusts me. He should wear a shirt saying It's all about me, not what America wants."

Well there ya go Nico. One 18 year old probably freaked out by a guy talking to her while they're trapped in an elevator, and that's the story of the entire election.

Hard to argue with that logic.

And are you SURE she said it was Obama who lied all the time? Because clearly, it's McCain that's gotten absolutely nailed lately by fact check organizations for repeatedly lying about just about everything.

For God's sake Nico, even KARL FREAKING ROVE said that McCain's lying is over the line! Just how badly do you have to be making shit up before KARL ROVE tells you you're going too far??

Noon,
Strange but interesting charges and information, but where the hell are you getting it?

Is it from credible sources? You don't mention.
