McCain ahead in Ohio and Florida, gains in Colorado

McCain 49% and Obama 47% in Ohio McCain 49% and Obama 48% in Florida McCain up a point against Obama in Colorado since the 5th (still down by 4%) Here’s the details So lets stop all this idiotic panic please. I mean seriously, Obama is running in a dead give away Democrat year with about a 4:1 money advantage and McCain is still within the margin of error nationally and in most important states. Obama couldn’t be a weaker candidate… It’s gonna be close, just like the past two elections. You know, ever since the current red/blue demographics were aligned.

If McCain wins, thank Joe the plumber

Joe Wurzelbacher was made famous this week. He is the plumber who challenged Barack Obama’s tax plan on the streets of Toledo, Ohio and thereby incited the now famous “spread the wealth around” gaffe. According to the New York Times his name was mentioned an astounding two dozen times during the final presidential debate. He has become a focal point, a symbol if you will, for all those who are skeptical of Barack Obama and his wealth redistributing tax policies. Joe the plumber pulled of a great feet. He managed to do something that John McCain and the entire republican

Obama wants to “spread the wealth around”

So, yea, I’m sure everybody already figured that out but I’m just as sure that nobody expected him to just outright say it… Here’s the story. This won’t be good for Obama because it is a short soundbite friendly gaffe. I don’t know how far this story will go but at least its a plus McCain-Palin. (Reaction from Malkin and Hotair) FINALLY UPDATE: A spreadable butter based ideology (Hat tip: Malkin) THE PLUMBER IS NOT HAPPY UPDATE: Just to echo Allah, Joe Wurzelbacher needs to be in a McCain ad NOW. JOE WURZELBACHER FOR PRESIDENT? UPDATE: Malkin seems to think

Hey someone in the media finally gets it!

Shocking, I know. But true. Just check out Jonathan Martin’s article over at The Politico. Its about how McCain will be called a racist no matter what. Sure its something that’s been obvious for months but, hey, give him credit for figuring it out at all. P.s. Someone should send this to McCain and tell him to start making Rev. Wright an issue again. Its not racist by any means and its completely relevant.  After all he attended that nut job “church” for twenty years yet he still tries to claim that he has good judgement… its a joke waiting

Is it bad when the Conserv-O-Sphere needs comic relief?

Seems to be a lot of depression and panic theses days… Some for good reason. Some for exaggerated concerns over polls… come on people Zogby only has him down by 3 and, if you think about the atmosphere, Obama should be up by, say, 15 or so. But in case you are feeling down like some of my compatriots in the Conserv-O-Sphere here’s some material to cheer you up: Hot Air found a hilarious reworking of the famous Take on Me video… even better than Family Guy. Malkin took a more political, but still hilarious, approach and found this Gem.

Don’t they get that image is… well, everything?

Seriously. What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”. The same genius also referred to Sarah Palin as “SP”, I mean come on… what is this aide thinking? Are they trying to make her look less ready to lead? When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those

The Debate… Who cares?

Well, I guess a lot of people do (Malkin even called it “a historic night“). But I don’t. And, honestly, why should I? What purpose was there in watching that boring thing? I mean, come on, what was I going to learn from last nights debate that I didn’t already know? And even for uninformed people what was there to learn last night that you couldn’t have learned in a far more accurate way from either of the campaign websites or from any number of fact checking sites? Don’t get me wrong, I love a gaffe as much as the

Is Bradley Jacobs of Us Weekly the new Dick Harper?

So, Bradley Jacobs, the senior editor of Us Weekly appeared on Fox News’ American Election HQ at 5:55 today to defend the hit piece they slapped on their increasingly worthless (and I mean by the minute) cover page. And as you may have already guessed, it was atrocious. But, as the clearly unprepared, stumbling, and bumbling hack, Bradley Jacobs, fumbled his way through the first half of the interview… ok, actually the entire interview… I couldn’t help but be reminded of the scene in “Fun with Dick and Jane” where Jim Carey’s character is taken completely by surprise and gets
