first?

wobblie said...

The homemade signs give it the "grassroots" feel that the slick, obviously out of touch D's lack.

ash said...

riiiigght.

dave3544 said...

I think that the "homemade" signs are part of the whole, "we're just like you" schtick.

E. said...

Mike3550 doesn't know it yet, but for Halloween, as punishment for posting "first," he'll be McCain and I'll be Palin. I am watching the RNC tonight because I need to do my mannerism/tone/vocab research.

wobblie said...

Does the Texas delegation get their cute matching outfits cleaned every night, or are they stewing in two-day old flop sweat?

No...wait, they're Republicans. Matching outfits for each night.

dave3544 said...

Poor Bristol.

ash said...

like who? i've seen your graphic design work, sir.

dave3544 said...

What we learned about Palin:

Alaskan, plays basketball, beauty queen, fertile.

wobblie said...

Mike's not mean enough to pull of McCain, and I hear he was never a POW. You can't fake that kind of experience.

dave3544 said...

She's telling the batshit "flew 8 hours after going into labor a month early" story as a positive.

We are through the looking glass people.

CPS said...

McCain was a POW? Who knew?

wobblie said...

Alex Castallenos said that this ain't compassionate conservatism. Well no fucking shit.

dave3544 said...

Didn't she take on a Republican governor?

ash said...

Begala: Mittens = poor quality ground beef. Said he "embarrassed himself."

E. said...

RNC scheduling conversation:

"Does anyone really know Palin?"

"Uh, well Hawaii is also not part of the continental U.S."

"Bingo! I think there is a female Republican there."

"Great, let's have her speak."

CPS said...

You could drill for oil in that backdrop.

wobblie said...

Why are the conventioneers dressed like they're going to church?

Oh... wait.

Mike3550 said...

Governor ≠ President
Mayor of Maui ≠ President
Mayor of Wasawhat ≠ President

wobblie said...

They really need to stop pointing out that Palin has more executive experience than Obama, Biden... or McCain.

ash said...

Carl Bernstein: You don't pick Sarah Palin unless you know you're outside the margin or error for victory.

dave3544 said...

Oh, your guys are watching your non-CSPAN, so you are missing a very yeoman-like speech from the Governor of Hawaii.

Right now she is going into how Obama and Biden have "zero" executive experience. The crowd seems to be chanting "zero."

McCain has this same experience, yes?

wobblie said...

Obama has never managed a multi-million dollar budget? Have they looked at his campaign budget?

dave3544 said...

Zero!! Zero!! Zero!!

wobblie said...

And the CEO-presidency has worked out so well this last 8 years, no?

Mike3550 said...

Like Kwame! Maybe he should run for President -- apparently he's more qualified than anyone else running...except Palin.

E. said...

CPS: "You could drill for oil in that backdrop."

Tee hee! Let's do it.

CPS said...

Awww, Bristol, Trig and Cindy.

Mike3550 said...

How many Hawai'is can you fit in Alaska?

dave3544 said...

Delaware sucks ballz.

It had to be said.

E. said...

The Governor of Hawaii is making fun of small states. Damn.

wobblie said...

Wow, I think that was just a "whipping the genitalia out" contest between AK and DE.

Mike3550 said...

I'm bored.

dave3544 said...

Nothing riding on Palin's shoulders here.

Mike3550 said...

At least we'll get Giuliani soon...if nothing else, he'll be entertaining. The man has never been short of entertainment.

wobblie said...

How many times repeating "Washington is Broken" do you think it's going to take to make people forget that the GOP has been running Washington?

dave3544 said...

Are there even four people in that hall that think Palin is going to reform Washington?

Or that McCain picked her because he's putting the country first?

wobblie said...

Um... yes. That's what's fucking scary.

dave3544 said...

"We've struck oil with Sarah" was on one of the homemade signs. That don't even make sense.

wobblie said...

Place your bets on how many times you hear "9/11" uttered.

dave3544 said...

drink every time he says 9-11.

Mike3550 said...

Drinking game for 9/11 comments? Or is that too easy?

ash said...

good evening, 9-11!

dave3544 said...

John McCain" Everybody's #2 pick for the Republican nomination.

Mike3550 said...

Longest, except for me...huh? You lost in the first week of the campaign, you joker!

Dr. Curmudgeon said...

We should do an over/under pool to see how long till he mentions he was involved in helping NYC survive 9/11

dave3544 said...

Shouldn't the campaign have felt "shorter" to Rudy?

ash said...

i demand that hollywood celebrities decide the next election!

E. said...

Backtrack to Dave3544:
Using "Alaska = near Russia therefore Palin = foreign policy genius" argument to explain this cognitive problem:

-McCain has a female vpc therefore McCain = total believer in women's abilities to do everything.

-McCain = older, therefore he was in the "country first."

Hope this logic serves us well through November.

dave3544 said...

USA!! USA!! USA!!

CPS said...

did the left-wing media elect W?

Mike3550 said...

If you are Rudi Giuliani, you hire the person who has done you the most favors recently -- then you hire that person. Regardless of their criminal record.

Mike3550 said...

I can't spell...

wobblie said...

Zing(s)!

wobblie said...

John McCain was a POW? Who knew?

dave3544 said...

How come I only get to know job history? How come I can't know about what the candidates believe? What what they say they would do on the job?

Fuck it, I'd hire the POW. Without him, I wouldn't have a freaking desk.

ash said...

hey, john mccain is a POW?

wobblie said...

You'd think they'd stop mentioning "torture."

dave3544 said...

I thought he'd earned the right to plug every whore that would take a fin.

wobblie said...

Tasteless.

dave3544 said...

Zero!! zero!! zero!!

ash said...

WTF???

Dr. Curmudgeon said...

I guess you'd know about machine politics...

Mike3550 said...

If he's not experienced, then how can he immerse himself in machine politics. I swore I just heard running a city is harder than being president? I'm confused...

E. said...

When I was mayor of NYC **a million frickin' years ago**

dave3544 said...

Ha ha! Mayors don't vote. Nor do governors. Hilarious!

wobblie said...

Wow, they've found all six people of color in that audience, haven't they?

CPS said...

you could drill for oil in that city!

EZ said...

9/11?

E. said...

count the under 40 folks in the audience too. not being age-ist, just a fun game.

ash said...

there it is...9/11

dave3544 said...

Why is that a punch line? That it could only happen in America?

Zero!! Zero!! Zero!!

ash said...

EZ's here!

Mike3550 said...

Being homeless & not having a job ≠ crisis

That is the best statement of Compassionate Conservatism I have ever heard.

wobblie said...

Never led anything except a campaign that won the Democratic nomination against the inevitable.

E. said...

oh honey, the nyc drilling has commenced.

http://nymag.com/news/intelligencer/49136/

ash said...

no time for on-the-job training? sarah is screwed.

EZ said...

Berny Kerik? is that you?

Jason said...

Ruh roh, I guess Rudy didn't get the Hillary memo.

wobblie said...

Just FYI, there'll be new thread for the Palin video/speech as soon as 9/11 is done.

ash said...

did anyone else see that line about sarah palin getting the call at 3 am about the moose getting in the garbage can again? can't remember where i read that...

Mike3550 said...

Nothing nature throws at him? Unless, of course, it's his birthday. He gets a birthday pass.

E. said...

"hope is not strategy."

right, "country first" is strategy.

Dr. Curmudgeon said...

And only briefly about specifics.

dave3544 said...

"Change is not a destination, just as hope is not a strategy."

Not bad.

Jason said...

Bristol looks pissed.

wobblie said...

Did you just see the guy yell "Oil!!!!" My god.

EZ said...

drill baby drill....priceless

Jason said...

"Hope is not a strategy" is a liberal blogger line about Bush.

E. said...

he wants babies to drill? time to step up, labor movement.

Dr. Curmudgeon said...

Who bets Bristol's boyfriend started the chant?

wobblie said...

I'm wondering how the offshore drilling focus plays in FL.

ash said...

doc c: zing! we just said the same thing at casa fogle-sharif.

EZ said...

spill baby spill?
pill baby pill?

wobblie said...

Dr. C FTW!

dave3544 said...

A guy in the audience just yelled "Oil!" at the top of his lungs.

Anyone else get the feeling that these people are drunk?

Creating tariffs = hurting jobs, moving jobs elsewhere. Centuries of economic theory wrong.

wobblie said...

Yeah, especially insulting to that Bin Laden guy they haven't caught.

EZ said...

9/11!

wobblie said...

9/11!!!!!!

Jason said...

dave3544, they aren't the only ones

CPS said...

New R theme song?

dave3544 said...

I must organize some grievances before Palin.

When they give up on Iraq, they give up on Iraq.

ash said...

osama bin laden won the war in iraq. sure, why not?

wobblie said...

Uh... the surge is still unpopular.

E. said...

Is Cindy McCain holding Twig or Branch or whatever the tiniest Palin's name is? Shameless.

wobblie said...

Yeah, bring up the wiretapping...

E. said...

Giuliani is the guy who makes a joke at a party and laughs at his joke before anyone else does.

Mike3550 said...

Well, John, you're well on your way to losing both...

Jason said...

We are all Georgians!

wobblie said...

For the record, McCain ripped off "We are all Georgians" from the French.

CPS said...

Um, is he running for something or setting up Palin?

wobblie said...

Sweet! UN bashing!

E. said...

no! not the vile French!

Jason said...

Actually, that was a pretty good bit about the SecCo.

Mike3550 said...

Maybe you should've done that during your campaign, Rudy. You might've won.

ash said...

cps: you're right.

sarah, i'd get that VP introduction thing in writing.

dave3544 said...

Please let Sarah Palin be the future of the Republican Party.

ash said...

ok, there we go...

wobblie said...

Zing!

EZ said...

gotta go eat.....have fun watching/snarking Palin

wobblie said...

Holy shit, this is getting scary.

CPS said...

small town, god loving Rudy!

ash said...

there really aren't words to express how much i hate this fucker.

wobblie said...

She reduced government spending?

dave3544 said...

Jason,

I don't think Obama ever said anything about the UN Security Council, just as he never said anything about Palin's hometwon not being cosmo enough.

dr said...

Hey everybody, looks like I'm late to the party. I haven't had time to read all of the comments, so I'm not sure if y'all have heard: John McCain was a P.O.W.!

E. said...

don't worry wobblie 10:24, this is the choir to whom they are preaching. this is the most revved up anyone will be watching this bunk.

dave3544 said...

He'll cut taxes and terror!

wobblie said...

McCain was a POW? Who knew?

wobblie said...

Rudy knows a thing or two about how to treat women, doesn't he?

ash said...

rudy the feminist. yeah.

Dr. Curmudgeon said...

Boy, she can really bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan.

wobblie said...

New thread is going up now.
