Remember the “Dewey beats Truman” newspaper headline?

..which took place before all the votes were counted, and it ended up being Truman who was victorious, which resulted in that famous photo of him waving the premature announcement of his defeat?

Well, here’s a humourous spoof on that photo I found tonight:

The story to explain that photo-shopped photo would be this:

Just yesterday, Lindsey Graham told Fox News, “Thank God John [McCain] came back” to work on the bailout package. Around the same time, McCain’s chief campaign strategist was on NBC, bragging that it was John McCain who brought House Republicans to the negotiating table, making a deal likely. And it was McCain himself, just this […]

Snap polls immediately after debate favour Obama

I didn’t watch the Mccain/Obama debate last night, so I don’t have an opinion on who won or who lost, but I note that all the snap polls and study groups this AM favour Obama. Some mention is made of how McCain came across as angry and not ever looking at Obama while debating.

So, if you watched the debate, what was your impression?

Mccain campaign claiming victory in the debate – before the debate.

Oops:

“McCain Wins Debate!” declares the ad which features a headshot of a smiling McCain with an American flag background. Another ad spotted by our eagle-eyed observer featured a quote from McCain campaign manager Rick Davis declaring: “McCain won the debate– hands down.”

This is the first of the Presidential debates that McCain was asking a couple of days ago to be suspended because of the US economy exploding. Obama called his bluff, and McCain figured out that he really couldn’t afford letting Obama have the stage to himself. Regardless, McCain’s showing up, and while it’s perfectly alright to be releasing ads claiming the candidate won the debate – it’s […]

Sarah Palin a “game-changer”…for the Democrats.

So my blogging colleague Antonio over from Fuddle-Duddle has been trying to tell me how much of a game changer this Sarah Palin pick would be for McCain and the Republicans. He never expressly said it would help the Republicans and McCain win the Presidential election, but I got the feeling he believed it was a positive for the McCain campaign.

There is no doubt from what I’ve seen that she does excite the Republican wingnuts base, and why wouldn’t she? She’s anti-abortion, she’s for teaching creationism in schools alongside evolution in science class, she’s pro-oil drilling and anti-environment, she’s for teaching abstinence-only to teenagers and not safe-sex courses. Your […]

More examples of fearmongering from the conservatives..

…but this time from the US, from the Conservative Party’s American Idols, the Republican Party, who did very well with fearmongering as an election tool from 2002-2005. It appears some in the McCain team are trying once again to get Americans scared. First, they’re trying to get them scared of Obama. John McCain said in an interview a couple of days ago that he considered Obama’s voting record to show he was an extremist and maybe even a socialist (GASP!). Today, some in the McCain camp are trying to paint an entire religious group as who Americans should be afraid of as well:

McCain POW bud: Muslims ‘going to kill […]

John McCain needs to smarten up.

I think it was fellow progressive/liblogger Steve over at Far and Wide who told me not to underestimate John Mccain’s poor showing in the Republican primaries in Iowa as an indicator of how he might do in New Hampshire and the rest of the country, because he barely campaigned in Iowa or threw money at it, and was concentrating elsewhere.

Fair enough. But, if McCain continues to issue boneheaded statements like this, count me as being even more skeptical of his chances:

According to Wilford Brimley, voting for John McCain is the right thing to do.”Wilford Brimley is our response to Chuck Norris,” McCain said on his campaign bus. “He’s […]
