Does Sarah Palin Even Know What Intellectual Means?
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Gov. Palin’s astonishing claim?
She’s a smart, “intellectual” dame.
That gal may be bright
And quite tough in a fight,
But her intellect’s woefully lame.
"In this election, Obama is so far ahead now it seems the only way he can lose is if his supporters screw it up. But Obama's supporters have a secret weakness. They're Democrats. They are perfectly capable of screwing this up. I'm not sure if Democrats remember how to win an election. They haven't won an election since 2000." --Craig Ferguson

Mr. and Mrs. Alan Greenspan
Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan on Thursday
admitted he was "partially" wrong for not trying to oversight
credit default swaps, complex
trading instruments meant to act as insurance against default for bond buyers.
Greenspan, who has led the U.S. central bank for more than 18 years, told the Congress that the current financial crisis is a "once-in-a-century credit tsunami," and warned U.S. unemployment would rise further.

Palin denies accepting $150K in designer clothes The Associated Press
told a bunch of third graders that the vice president 'runs the Senate,' which
the vice president does not do. Not knowing what the job is? Even President Bush
will tell you, the vice president doesn't run the Senate. The vice president
runs the White House." --Jimmy Kimmel
A Republican Endorses Obama
Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, a Republican, endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president on Friday, citing the senator's steady leadership, good judgment and ability to unify Democrats, Republicans and independents.
Scott McClellan, President Bush's former press secretary who angered old colleagues with a tell-all book earlier this year, said Thursday he is backing Barack Obama for president.

A Boca Raton
defense contractor and prominent GOP fundraiser
inflated the profits on contracts to provide fuel to the U.S. military in Iraq,
costing taxpayers as much as $180 million,
congressional investigators concluded in a letter released Thursday.
The Democratic leader of a congressional oversight committee said International Oil Trading Co. -- co-owned by Harry Sargeant, a longtime friend of Gov. Charlie Crist and the finance chairman of the Florida Republican Party -- has a virtual monopoly on military fuel contracts, allowing the company to earn twice as much in profits as past suppliers.
"John McCain mentions Joe the Plumber so much, I am afraid he is addicted to crack [on screen: photo of a plumber's backside]." And now, the McCain-Palin campaign is spread spreading the love to all the middle class [on screen: McCain and Palin mentioning 'Ed the dairy man,' 'Rose the teacher,' 'Phil the bricklayer,' 'Molly the dental hygienist,' and 'Chuck the teacher']. I believe they went on to single out Bob the Builder, Dora the Explorer, and Thomas the Tank Engine. A key demographic. The only person McCain's not talking about is George the President" --Stephen Colbert

"In other words, Sarah is not the only Palin who got an upgrade. Almost $5,000 was spent on clothing for her husband, Todd, and more on the Palin children. Now, that's just one scandal. Palin has also charged the Alaska state government for over $21,000 of airfare for her daughters and $700 hotel rooms and went back and amended the expense reports to justify the payments, not to mention $17,000 in per diems she was paid to live in her own home. My God! They're a family of grifters!" --Jon Stewart

I’d like to
respond to the email you printed regarding Sarah Palin being attacked for taking
her children on official trips. As a working, single mom, I think it would be
wonderful if my company would pay for my children to travel with me on business,
but alas, it does not exist in the professional world. While it is admirable
that Governor Palin wants to have her children with her, I wonder if she would
afford that same luxury to female subordinates.
We are talking about a woman who had no qualms about charging rape victims for their rape kits, yet seems to have no compunction with allowing the taxpayers in Alaska pay for her children’s stay in luxury hotels. This double standard may be part of the reason this woman is taking such heat.
Sarah, is special, don'tcha know!
Is it just me or are children distracting in the workplace?
I'll miss Sarah, she makes for great

"I know how they're doing it. The hot one [on screen: photo of Palin] finds an elderly victim [on screen: photo of McCain]. Then she seduces him with her unfancy-talk and once he pulls out the checkbook, boom! Here come the relatives. The old fart never had a chance!" --Jon Stewart
Hey, I want to say congratulations to the nation of India today. They’ve joined a very select group that has successfully launched a space mission.
