McCain Campaign Dying to Get Back to the Lipstick Wars

Sep
28

The McCain Campaign is working hard to put the financial crisis behind it. From the WaPo:

Will the Trib Endorse Obama?

Sep

"First Democratic Endorsement in 72 Years!" reads the recommended Diary on Kos. It was about the Stockton Record endorsing a Democrat for President for the first time in 72 years.

The Editorial presents an overview of the two candidates in what has pretty much become public knowledge. On McCain, the paper is pretty damning:

McCain Wins Debate [Updated]

Sep
26

Talk about 'expectations'! McCain's so sure of himself that not only does he declare victory ahead of time but he does so even before he declares whether he'll be there or not.

This guy should be certified. He's running the nuttiest campaign's ever. Commander-and-chief at Bellevue is all he ought to be.

Senator McCain, Please Stay in Washington

Sep
26

My latest letter to the McCain Campaign:

Senator McCain,

Please stay in Washington.

We know refusing to go to Mississippi for the Debate and claiming you've "suspended" your campaign is nothing but a desperate publicity stunt. We know economics isn't your strong point, and that your role, such as it is, in the negotiations to hammer out a bailout agreement has been less than constructive.

Stunt of the Day by John McCain

Sep
24

Talk about presumption: McCain's wants to "suspend the campaign" so he and Obama can deal with the crisis on Wall Street. Huh? Who the hell does he think he is?

He's merely running for president. Until 11/4, both he and Obama have their old jobs which is being a senator.

What's so earthshaking to a senator that he has to suspend his campaign and return to the Senate after barely showing his face there since last April?

Time to Quicken the Pace

Sep

obama_bus.png I got a note about buses going to Iowa. It's started! You know things are getting serious when the buses start running. We're in the home stretch of the campaign.

It's not the final heated moments when everyone goes all out but it's the time where we have to pick up the pace, make sure we're doing something at least once a week, if not more often, to make sure Barack Obama and the rest of the Democratic ticket win on November 4.

Illinois_seal.pngIn the words of Cynthia Canary, Director of the Illinois Campaign for Political Reform (ICPR):

The General Assembly has listened to the people of Illinois and enacted much needed pay-to-play reforms. We now need to work together to build on that reform and do more to improve the integrity, accountability and transparency of state government.
