More... Jesus help us.

From the fine (not) folks over at Federal Review we get this little gem...

A new story broke over at the Federal Review entitled:
Oppose Obama and Lose Your Job? Joe the Plumber Gets Threatened By Toledo Officials.
See, it turns out, Joe the Plumber isn't a plumber (doesn't have a license) and because of the media scrutiny the Toledo Division of Building Inspection is trying to contact Joe and let him know he can't work without a license. Hardly a threat.

This is the graphic that accompanied the story at the Federal Review.

This thinking is so sick I don't even know where to begin. If the shoe were on the other foot I wonder how the R's would handle this?

Let's say, a homeless person collecting welfare confronts McCain and asks a question in front of the Media. That person's comments are woven into the presidential debate and therefor the press wants to track it down. Turns out this person isn't eligible for welfare after all and is scamming the system. Would the Federal Review post this headline?

Oppose McCain and Lose Your Benefits? Bob the Welfare Recipient Gets Threatened By Toledo Officials.

Somehow I don't think so...

a LONG three weeks to go....

Isn't 3 the magic number?

Isn't 3 a magic number? While it might be… I think the magic number we’re looking for is 270.

Check out these electoral polls: (Need 270 to win) As of 10/16/08 (leans left – has Obama at 352) (leans right – has Obama at 286) (overtly republican – has Obama at 369) (Has Obama at 264) and says:

Probability of Reaching 270
Obama - Biden > 99% (has Obama at 338) (has Obama at 358) (has Obama at 352.2)

And More Racism...

Pam, over at Pam's House Blend found more examples of the overt racism....

And I don't even know how to begin to talk about this:

This beauty comes to us from the Sacramento (CA) County Republican web site. Officials there took it down after getting blasted by their own party. Yet this passes for discourse on the right.

The Sacramento Bee intervied Craig MacGlashan who takes credit for the site ( and its content. He happens to be the husband of Sacramento County Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan.

With the Bee he defended his Web site. "I'm aware of the content," he said. "Some people find it offensive, others do not. I cannot comment on how people interpret things."

Really? Waterboard Obama - you can't be sure how people might interpret that?

This is what I'm talking about....

It's gone too far...

John McCain opened the Pandora's Box of hate and bigotry, of disenfranchisement and scapegoating, and there's no way for him to reel it in. Nor do I suspect that he truly realizes the power of it either. Not when he says things like:

"After I whip his you know what in this debate, we're going to be going out 24/7," McCain said of his upcoming debate with Obama, but seeming to consider recent criticism that his words have been too inflammatory, he quickly told supporters to be respectful.

Really? Telling supporters you're planning on whipping (no loaded imagery there) your opponent seems like a smart way to let them know that they must remain respectful? Frank Rich writes an excellent op-ed on how McCain's campaign has framed their battle against "The Terrorist Barack Hussein Obama":

(I)t’s not just the old Joe McCarthyesque guilt-by-association game, however spurious, that’s going on here. Don’t for an instant believe the many mindlessly “even-handed” journalists who keep saying that the McCain campaign’s use of Ayers is the moral or political equivalent of the Obama campaign’s hammering on Charles Keating.

What makes them different, and what has pumped up the Weimar-like rage at McCain-Palin rallies, is the violent escalation in rhetoric, especially (though not exclusively) by Palin. Obama “launched his political career in the living room of a domestic terrorist.” He is “palling around with terrorists” (note the plural noun). Obama is “not a man who sees America the way you and I see America.” Wielding a wildly out-of-context Obama quote, Palin slurs him as an enemy of American troops.

Read the rest.....

I'm getting worried.

This is what our political discourse has come to. While Obama may not support the policies you like, he is an American. I'm stunned by this level of hatred.

More to come.
