I love it. Obama doesn't need to do anything except watch McCain and Palin throw themselves under the Straight Talk Express.



And every time they let [Sarah Palin] talk for more than four minutes, you actually start feeling sorry for her. It's kind of like Kim Kardashian or "Dancing With the Stars." All that ass and can't shake it. - Chris Rock, comedian, on Larry King Live

Palin Failin



 Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, describing the need for more troops in Afghanistan, said the United States has achieved "victory" in Iraq.

It was an apparent misstep in Palin's third interview since agreeing to become Republican Sen. John McCain's running mate four weeks ago.

Subject: Speech by Bush



Hi Lisa,

Am I the only one who had the Bejeebus scared out of me by that god-awful speech. I am 65 and no president ever used alarmist words and his bleakness....omg... Why is the media not covering that? I see giggling people on some morning shows. Scarborough and Mika and Fox and Friends especially. Am I in bizarro world? How could our financial institutions all of a sudden collapse and a instant fix is needed of 700 bil with no oversight and Bush shows up in his speech looking like he's held hostage. I wonder if the worst is yet to come.

Hope I didn't bum u out.

I hear you Sandy.


I think because so much news is coming in fast and furious that it is hard to digest.


Bush did look as though he was being held hostage.



He had that faraway look in his eyes and a hole in his neck.


Seriously, to try and answer your question, many noticed Bush's doom and gloom speech, but it is lost among all the other doom and gloom news and that's a good thing -- Bush seems irrelevant.


This bodes well for Obama as McCain and Palin seem to be failin!


Mika on Morning Joe has morphed from a strong woman to an obsequious giggling crutch for Scarborough. Amazing what money will buy, eh?


That show is too noisy for me, people talking over each other, Mika's incessant giggles, a snare drum playing while Mika "delivers" the news. I prefer closed captioning when viewing that show.


As an average citizen I sure am fearful of what is happening and I will be holding a yard sale today and tomorrow. Really. The more cold hard cash the better!

Did The Dog Eat John McCain’s Debate Notes? (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

This Friday’s debate won’t proceed,
Says McCain, while pretending to lead.
We’ve a crisis at hand.
Country first — his demand.
Be a patriot, John, and concede.

"No, actually, the real reason he says he's postponing the debate is to concentrate on the economic crisis. In fact, President Bush spoke to the nation earlier tonight, addressing the financial crisis. He spoke live from the White House panic room." --Jay Leno

"John McCain showed up without running mate Sarah Palin, which is a shame because she actually has a lot of experience with financial matters. You know, she lives right next to a bank." --Jimmy Kimmel,





Sarah Palin was at the U.N. yesterday, meeting all the world leaders. Actually, she is still learning who the world leaders are. For example, right now, she thinks that Warren Buffett is the head of Margaritaville.- David Letterman

Odd News



Yves Rossy of Switzerland celebrates after landing after his solo flight from France to England near Dover, England, Friday, Sept. 26, 2008. The Swiss daredevil crossed the English Channel strapped to a homemade jet-propelled wing Friday, parachuting into a field near the white cliffs of Dover after a 10-minute solo flight. Yves Rossy leapt from a plane at more than 8,800 feet (2,500 meters), fired up his jets and made the 22-mile (35-kilometer ) trip from Calais in France. Rossy passed over a thin strip of land in front of South Foreland lighthouse, seen at rear, looped over onlookers and opened his parachute, his wings still strapped to his back.
