The final stretch.
Author: Raine    Date: 10/06/2008 12:28:25

So it's our first Monday day of October. The McCain campaign has decided it's going to go after Barack Obama with the Ayers Story. Yes -- THAT Ayers Story, the one we dealt with during primary season. John MCCain and Sarah Palin are going to do everything they can to distract America from the economy. EVERYTHING. It's 'Kitchen Sink' time in Politics.

4F Exclusive!

Velveeta Jones has a sit down with Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin!

Yes dear readers, recently, a group of people were selected to ask Gov. Palin questions, and to my utter surprise, I had the distinct privilege to ask the burning questions that the American people want answers to. Unfortunately, as I later found, the selection process did not seem to include those Americans that are often referred to as “elite” and to which I have now come to realize is just another word for “smart”.

How your own Velveeta was selected for this is beyond me. Though, for some reason, people assume that anyone with a Southern accent and any semblance of proper decorum, or conversely, a penchant for beer and NASCAR, to be rather dull headed and dense. This is a falsehood perpetuated by the liberal media I assure you.

Herein is my interview with Vice Presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin:

VJ: Gov, thank you for allowing me to ask you a few questions. I understand your hesitation and will abide by your rules to no “filtering” (as she claims CBS did) and to acknowledge that you will only answer the ones you choose. I have an awful lot of important questions and I want to get right to it, because I know I have a limited amount of time.

Libertarian Saturday
Author: TriSec    Date: 10/04/2008 10:41:18

Good Morning!

I'm headed out for a romp in the woods this morning...curiously it's a company event! That's right...it's Athena's annual corporate retreat, our annual community service and teambuilding out in the woods in Welleseley. So....we'll take a brief look through the usual Libertarian haunts before I head out.

(Since I made Mrs. TriSec take this recently, won't everyone take another look at the world's smallest political quiz and tell us how you did? I'm still placing in the Libertarian quadrant, but much closer to left/liberal these days, mainly on economic issues...)


You might have heard that the House finally passed the bailout rescue bill yesterday, and the president quickly signed it into law. Of course the markets loved that, as the Dow closed down 157 points yesterday. Not everyone is happy about it, it seems. Leading that parade is Libertarian candidate Bob Barr...

St. Louis Vice
Author: BobR    Date: 10/03/2008 12:28:58

It seemed like some sort of drug-induced fever-dream... There was Fargo's Marge Gunderson tarted up and playing the part of Miss South Carolina... "Oh ya" or "Ooh Key" she'd say in response to a question, then meander off-course and into an answer to a question not asked. I kept looking for signs of intelligence behind those blank eyes, but came up empty. It was a nightmare!

Actually, no it was not a dream, unfortunately, but the VP debates last night.

VP Debate Blog..
Author: Raine    Date: 10/02/2008 23:58:20

Hey everyone! Just bout an hour to go and we will be watching the smackdown in the Gateway City. For our (hopefully) new members, I ask that you register, and after registration, you will see a comments link at the bottom of the blog. From there you will see a window where you can type things in and press the 'add a comment button' I promise, you will be very happy with this crew here.

But MOST important... We need to have game entertainment for the night.

I am suggesting that people try this game tonite, as it involves NO drinking unless you want it too. Debate Fight night Bingo Down.

Print out one for Sarah and one for Joe, (or 5 or 6 if you are a bingo person!) Yell bingo on the blog and EVERYONE drinks... In the meantime, just drink when you get to check a box off.

We have about an hour to go before the debate, don't forget to vote in the poll, and PLEASE, remember....

I can see you from my border. I am still as qualified as Sarah Palin, because I know more supreme court cases and I know what I read everyday. Go Ahead, ask me how 'Cherlie' and I'll git beck to ya...

:peace: and
Raine

Lost man in a lost campaign. Where in the world is John McCain?
Author: Raine    Date: 10/02/2008 12:23:51

At this point, Most of us are aware that the Senate passed a version of the Financial Rescue Bill. (I believe that is what the kids are calling it these days.) I am sure that we will hear more details about it today and tomorrow as it heads to the House for their review and vote.

Yesterday, I watched C-Span, and saw some amazing speeches from our fine Democratic Senators. I must admit I don't know much about the bill, but they certainly inspired me. Some details:

Limping off into the Darkness
Author: BobR    Date: 10/01/2008 12:34:21

The current economic meltdown and our government's seeming inability to agree on what to do about it has been dominating the news ever since the Paulson "plan" was released (along with the apparently incorrect dire warnings that we were just days away from slipping into the abyss). Close on its heels are the random bits demonstrating the McCain campaign's political hari-kari, and Palin's ignorant arrogance. Obama is hardly in the news anymore at all.

Also missing in action is pResident Bush.

Oh, he makes the occasional appearance, like the groundhog emerging from its burrow to let us all know we have 6 more weeks of winter. But the strutting cocky rancher is gone. In his place is a defeated deflated miserable man with a reverse Midas touch that has seen everything he's touched turn to shit. Even the pundits that once supported him have noticed:

We find this morning's cost of war passing through $ 558, 431, 900, 000.00



As it's been reported in this space, the RNC is working hard to disenfranchise voters in many states via unscrupulous means. But when they cast their net, they also hauled in many veterans, some disabled and in VA hospitals. Is this what they were fighting for? IAVA has filed a brief in Ohio in an attempt to protect the voting rights of veterans.
