Alaska’s largest newspaper has endorsed Barack Obama despite the fact that their governor is Sarah Palin. Luckily for Palin, it’s one of the 500 newspapers she doesn’t read. - Conan O'Brien
McCain Cancels - Obama Doesn't
Dressed in blue
jeans and a black jacket, Barack Obama braved the cold rain falling in
Pennsylvania, and held his scheduled rally - outdoors. “A little bit of rain
never hurt anybody,” he quipped to the 9,000 who showed up in ponchos and
futilely holding umbrellas.
Just an hour away in Quakertown, the rival ticket cancelled their own outdoor rally due to inclement weather. Unfazed, Obama incorporated the conditions into his speech

White Tuxedos and Top Hats
In a rural Tennessee county
where you can't buy alcohol or even find a Wal-Mart, residents of tiny Bells
stopped each other to ask if anyone knew the pale-skinned young local accused of
plotting to kill dozens of black people, including Barack Obama...The killing
spree was initially to target a predominantly black school, which was not
identified in court documents. It was to end, authorities said,
two suspects — dressed in white tuxedos and top hats — blasting guns from the
windows of a speeding vehicle aimed at Obama.
"According to expense reports, Sarah Palin charged the state of Alaska over $21,000 for her children to travel with her on official business. In fairness to Governor Palin, when she leaves them home alone, they get pregnant." --Seth Meyers

"On top of
that, in turns out the highest-paid person in the McCain campaign? Not the
campaign manager, not the pollsters: Palin's makeup artist. I'm not kidding. The
highest-paid person, she flies to every city where Palin appears. And McCain? He
just gets the local gal who does the funeral home. No, it's not as bad as it
sounds. The makeup girl is also Palin's top foreign policy adviser." --Bill

A View From The Other Side Of The Pond
How was it allowed to happen? How did politics in the US come to be dominated by people who make a virtue out of ignorance? Was it charity that has permitted mankind's closest living relative to spend two terms as president? How did Sarah Palin, Dan Quayle and other such gibbering numbskulls get to where they are? How could Republican rallies in 2008 be drowned out by screaming ignoramuses insisting that Barack Obama was a Muslim and a terrorist?
"The campaign says they needed to make Sarah Palin seem hip and cool," but "I'm thinking if you're going to spend money trying to make somebody look hip and cool, what about John? What about spending some money on John?" - Craig Ferguson

"To top it all off for the week, apparently Sarah Palin accessorized her wardrobe with some ignorance this week. She was asked a question by a third-grader, and she got it wrong. She apparently still does not know what the vice president does. The job she is running for. She said he or she runs the Senate. No, not in this country. You know, George Bush, I would never accuse him of being a bright man, but when he was elected, he at least knew what building to show up to." --Bill Maher
I hope you had a good time today.
