citius, altius, fortius
This night is so rocking, PBS is having a seminar on first ladies.
McCain was a POW? Who knew?
We're 45 seconds into this video, and it sucks. It's like they want to be Ken Burns but have no idea how to be anywhere near compelling.
He more to do? He had three more planes to wreck!
Reading directly from the book. Filmmaking at its finest.
i am starting to wonder if i should consider McCain's military service when making my decision at the ballot box.
I didn't see the Democratic show on the tele. Did they use the teleprompter in the same way?
he COULD have returned from Hanoi a broken and bitter man?
I heard John McCain and Chuck Norris got into a fight, and John McCain bit Chuck Norris' head off, ate it. And all Chuck Norris could say was "Thank you for saving America."
Minx, the teleprompter is universal.
"true success" in Iraq. this thing is getting Dada-ist. no wobs, i don't think it'll upgrade to the situationist level. though they did once opine that the Watts rioters were the true descendants of dada.
Little known fact: McCain wrote Delta Force, and Chuck Norris's character is based on the Maverick's maverickness.
Do you think McCain looked like the guys in Rescue Dawn?
i am still a little confused about john's military record, however.
McCain lived in a box? Who knew?
Is that Fred Thompson freestyling?
This voice-over sounds like a weird "Dukes of Hazzard" lead-in...
that's minx's alter ego.
He's shorter than I expected.
That crowd doesn't strike me as going wi... zzzzz
fucking "dank box." jesus fucking christ.
The "dank box" is where I keep my weed.
It's like a light of a new day...
50 minutes of McCain. I'll apologize now for nodding off.
Just wait - halfway through he's going to throw all the liberals off his lawn.
wow, so he decided to ACCEPT the nomination.
Uh... is the background green... again?
Every time they show Cindy, all I can think is "a McCain win would be a real boon for Amy Poehler."
Wooo Dark Days!
the love between this man and his rich wife is indeed palpable.
I hope he gets mean with the green screen on.
How do you get from land mines to the first lady?
as for john mccain's daddy? HIS life, HIS love, and HIS lady was the Sea.
McCain's mom is younger than he is?!?
Where do they keep the necromancers that keep all these old Republicans going? Bad voodoo, man...
poor guy thinks he's going to win this election.
drill baby drill
Cheebus... who let the riffraff in?
We'll reach our hand out to any patriot, but the rest of you leftists are screwed.
Because there's no problem so bad a chant of USA can't solve it.
yes they have been sooo restrained the past few days....
I'm loving how bringing up problems leads to chants of USA! USA!
The crowd is more interested in heckling a protester than listening to their nominee.
Tell us about the Bridge to Nowhere, Maverick!
hands and nose?
Free advice to the GOP - you've really got to work on his creepy smile when he delivers an applause line.
I was watching footage of a McCain event earlier today, and it looked a bit like a middle-aged casting call for "Hooters."
John McCain's a maverick? Who knew?
wait, he's been called a Maverick?
Called a maverick, you say?
I don't work for a party...I don't work for myself. But I am available for rent.
by their deeds shall ye know them
That's right. As President, McCain promises specifics!
Seeing the crowd at this event makes me realize how little I really understand the people who live around me here in good ol' Georgia.
he made crooked deals in the savings and loan crisis.....whoops off msg
Not so keen on the fighting until we get to union bosses.
All right, let's start rolling out the sad sack stories.
Not their own house, just their real estate investments.
Seems like McCain could have loaned at least one of those families a house.
Nothing goes over like bashing your own party.
This msg is going over real well... crickets chirping
Yeah, standing up to the values.
i thought that you lost "our" trust when you enacted an entire sequence of economic policies that redistributed income upward! but apparently what i'm _really_ upset about is earmarks.
Does anyone else hear a high-pitched whistling noise?
That damn (shotgun passed) 14th amendment making the latina daughter of immigrants a citizen
Looks like Thomas, Scalia and Alito are out under the Mav.
Are these his policy specifics?
i hate it when i'm trying to get a cavity exam and a bureaucrat gets in between me and my doctor.
only thing worse than a bureaucRAT is a DemocRAT
Thank goodness there are no bureaucrats between me and my doctor now.
Failed Programs like the Iraq war?
dave says hi. He's out community organizing. I can only assume he's doing it responsibly.
community organizing? sounds vapid, but also threatening.
fucking WAGE insurance. jesus christ.
ooooooh! here comes education.
"Education is the civil rights issue of this century"Let's privatize!
while dave is out community organizing, I was mayor of a small town in Alaska
Please talk about homeschooling...
Let's get rid of bureaucrats and privatize so you can go through an automated system for an education. Press 1 for a degree now.Yay, privatization.
(insert loud dog whistle)
The USW member stands up to applaud the union bashing line. Thank you, Todd Palin.
Hey, let's root out the bad teachers by putting the youngest students through really dry testing.
Did the teleprompter say "smile here"?
oh, he means like Iraq?
let's spend $700 Billion drilling right here in the United States of America.
Did he just imply that we have a $700 Billion foreign aid budget?
drill on drill in drill out
Point for correctly pronouncing "nuclear" - well played, sir.
We're experimenting with hot air power right now...
That was a plan?
OMG - he still has 15 fucking minutes le... zzzzz
Aren't all of those old people in the audience's kids _already_ in the work force?
He's talking about their great grandkids.
Does this sound familiar?
Please start singing solidarity forever...
and $1 billion
I'm flying through Mpls. on Saturday. I hope these assholes don't linger after tomorrow.
wait, Iran is apparently interchangeable with 'al qaeda' AND russia. oh wait, it's 2008 in l'USA. sorry.
Dangerous threats in this dangerous world... who the hell is his speechwriter?
Chad say hey to Sen. Craig if you see him in the loo....
John McCain knows good...and evil.
he hates to mention it but....POW!
a stable and enduring peace...one hundred years or so from now.
I'll keep our kids from fighting wars by... keeping them fighting wars? Am I missing something?
When all is war, nothing will be not-war. Thus, peace cannot by not-war, but must be war. Thus peace is war. By transposition, then, war is peace.
McCain has scars from bipartisan cooperation?
I'm a uniter...
This. Speech. Sucks.
Cue: puppy and apple pie...
I'm changing channels in five minutes.
what event is he referring to?
McCain's own Gulf of Tonkin resolution.
POWPOW POW POW POW POWPOW POWPOW
oh, so there's an anecdote about his military career he'd like to share right about now?
John McCain was a POW? Who knew?
Wait? He's a POW?
I wish I could vote for one of them...
Sounds like you were a shitty pilot, flyboy.
and pow, a standing o
That would take so fucking long to tap out in morse code.
are any of those decorative corpses from Abu Ghraib still around? we could use them in McCain's Cabinet.
So it took becoming a POW to love America. Damn, we're all America-haters, I guess.
Reminding people about how long you draw breath... not so smart.
You know who else was a POW? Jesus.
If you find faults with our country, become a community organizer!
Sounds like being a community organizer.
Oh, we'll be fighting with you.
Is he stealing Kucinich's lines now?
did anyone else see the "MAVRICK" sign?
Unionboy, that's how mavericks spell maverick.Elitist.
Fun fact: the school district in Wasilla has a page in Russian. So I'd say Palin has done a pretty crappy job of holding back the Red Menace.
McCain looks very confused about all the rock 'n roll music.
Sarah Barracuda. Palin. Apparently her high school nickname.
Republicans Gone Wild!!
Anderson Cooper is saying that there were more specifics in McCain's speech than Obama's. For real?
I'd like to know which specific brans John McCain plans to eat during his administration.
The balloon drop appears to be a little bit excessive.
Game on, folks. I'll catch you later.
