Mccain Fails

Roger Simon at Politico: Pissy McCrankypants needed a miracle. He didn't get one.

Instead, the American public heard angry attacks from McCain.

Sometimes McCain attacked directly, and sometimes he attacked sarcastically, but he never stopped attacking. And he never rattled Obama.

“I admire so much Sen. Obama’s eloquence,” McCain sneered. “Sen. Obama, who has never traveled south of our border.” (This from a man whose running mate got her first passport last year.)

But McCain didn’t just attack, he also defended, including those people who attend his rallies and those of Sarah Palin who have shouted nasty and threatening things when Obama’s name is mentioned.

“Let me say categorically that I am proud of the people who come to my rallies,” McCain said. “I am not going to stand for anybody saying that the people who come to our rallies are anything other than patriotic citizens.”

Obama responded to all this — what else? — coolly.

“I don’t mind being attacked for the next three weeks,” Obama said. “What the American people can’t afford is four more years of failed economic policies.”

For McCain, the biggest impact of the debates was visual: In the first debate he refused to look at Obama, in the second debate McCain appeared to careen around the stage and in this last debate McCain would scribble furiously with his Sharpie as Obama was talking or else smirk in response to what Obama was saying.

Like a petulant, spoiled little brat. Just the qualities we need in a preznit!

No chemistry, no trust, no chance, no how

Highly regarded NBC Political Director: "Looks like Cindypills' pharmacist will be extra busy real soon"

Commenting on a new joint interview with John McCain and Sarah Palin, NBC News' Chuck Todd described the Republican ticket as lacking cohesion, chemistry, and trust.
But they look great!

Todd, who was remarking on the interview conducted by NBC's Brian Williams, speculated that the candidates had come to the realization that "they are losing" the campaign, and guessed that McCain may have begun to hold his vice presidential choice responsible for his dwindling White House chances.

Since blaming the media and most of America hasn't gone over so well.

"When you see the two of them together, the chemistry is just not there. You do wonder, is John McCain starting to blame her for things? Blaming himself? Is she blaming him?" asked Todd. "And maybe they don't feel they can win right now, so they are missing that intensity. That was the thing that struck me more than anything. You almost wonder why they wanted the two of them sitting next to each other."

Funny, McInsane called her his "soulmate" not all that long ago. How fickle. Fickle and erratic.

McInsane's pandering and fearmongering major turnoffs, sez conservative paper

Andrew Sullivan reports that the "real America" Idaho Statesman 'is the latest right-leaning paper to endorse Obama. One critical reason? When picking a running mate,' Obama did not choose an inexperienced, vicious airhead from North Bumfuck who jumped into the national political scene lying her ignorant, hateful ass off.

The Idaho Statesman on the Obama statesmanship:

[W]e cannot dismiss what we have seen and heard during the long job interview that is a presidential campaign. Obama has earned our trust and our support.

When picking a running mate, Obama made a solid choice, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware. Biden gives an Obama administration a seasoned hand on foreign policy and a 36-year Capitol Hill veteran. For all the seductive campaign rhetoric about the value of an "outsider," the reality is that Obama is helped by having a running mate who can deliver results.

McCain countered with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who energized the GOP's conservative base and wowed many Americans with her speech at the Republican convention. Since then, though, the [repulsive, knuckledragging ignoramus] has not convincingly shown she is ready for the White House.

Though she is ready for a position on a Faux Nooze morning show.

McCain made a splashy but impulsive pick designed to court voters. Obama made a smart pick designed to build an effective governing team.

The editorial also goes on to say that while McThuselah certainly has experience, Sen. Obama offers something more. Something that doesn't involve kissing Drinky the Disasterhole's stupid chimpy ass for the past eight years.

[T]he Illinois Democrat has shown American voters something more subtle, but something more important. He has demonstrated the superior intellect and the calm command our nation needs now.

This is incredible. We may actually be seeing the start of people* finally saying "we have had enough."
