Questions I would like to see tonight

October 7, 2008

“Mr. Obama, please comment on the following quote from the philosopher Spinoza, ‘there can be no hope without fear.’ As you are running a campaign of hopemongering, would you consider yourself a fearmongerer.”

“Mr. McCain, please read these four pages aloud from David Foster Wallace’s Up, Simba, where the recently deceased journalist who rode the straight talk express in 2000 details your excruciating time at the Hanoi Hilton. As a follow up, tell us what a great guy he was.”

“Mr. Obama, the US has not been attacked since Sept 11, 2001 and the Democrats did not come to power in Congress till January 2007. Please detail each and every element of the Bush and Republican Congress agenda that kept us safe.”

“Mr. McCain, you are better than Huckabee.”

“Mr. Obama, it is noted that in countries with the highest marginal tax rates, unemployment numbers are extremely high as well. How do you intend to soak the producers of the world and at the same time make sure the little guy doesn’t get hurt.”

“Mr. McCain, what is your favourite type of beer?”

“Last question, Mr. Obama, if you win this year, you will have kept two women from reaching the White House in one year. Do you feel good about yourself, sexist?”


Not up to Whose Standards?

October 7, 2008

MM has reported on NBC’s reasoning for pulling a skit from its website.  NBC has reported that the skit will be edited and reposted as soon as the editing is complete.  In my eyes the only thing that deserves to hit the editor’s room floor is the line “People who deserve to be shot”.  I do believe the Sander’s have some ‘splainin to do, but they are real people.  The last thing we need is some psychopath finding these slime and shooting them.  If anything else is edited out, NBC has cemented themselves as a Corporation who has pledged their allegiance to the the Left Wing financiers, and will even censor themselves to retain their loyalty. 

MM reports

Peter Viles at L.A. Land reports that Saturday Night Live is rewriting its forbidden Soros/Sandler-bashing
bailout skit because it “didn’t meet their standards.”

Translation: It didn’t meet George Soros’s standards!

The scoop:

A “Saturday Night Live” skit that skewered President Bush, Democrats, homebuyers and subprime lenders for their roles in the mortgage meltdown was removed from the program’s website because it “didn’t meet out standards,” a spokesman for the show said Tuesday. An edited version of the skit will be re-posted online soon, the spokesman said.

The skit, a parody of a C-SPAN news conference, ridiculed subprime borrowers, housing speculators and Herbert and Marion Sandler, the real-life couple who built Golden West Financial into a subprime lending powerhouse and sold it to Wachovia before the subprime collapse. At one point in the skit, the Herb Sandler character says he made $24 billion off the subprime boom. Graphics then appear labeling the Sandlers as “People who should be shot.”

“Upon review, we caught certain elements in the sketch that didn’t meet our standards,” a spokesman for the program said in an E-mail message Tuesday. “We took it down and made some minor changes and it will be back online soon.”

Robert Gibbs admits that Obama continued to “pal around” with Ayers after he learned of Ayers terrorist past. Thanks AllahPundit!


ACORN office raided in Las Vegas

October 7, 2008

The ACORN office in Las Vegas was raided this morning after a warrant was issued and served.  ACORN is being investigated for voter fraud in the state of NV.  ACORN is on the payroll by the Obama campaign and had been paid to “get-the-vote-out”.  There will likely be more breaking information later, but here is the information I could find.  Nevada is a swing state once again in this year’s election.

Just Chicago politics, once again, rearing its ugly head via its new hopeful giant The Messiah himself, Obama


MORE: by way of MM

Agents with the state attorney general’s and secretary of state’s offices served a search warrant this morning on the new ACORN headquarters. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now office is located at 953 E. Sahara Ave.

The warrant was part of an ongoing investigation into suspected voter registration fraud. Employees are suspected of using false addresses or false names, including those of former Dallas Cowboys, according to the secretary of state’s office.

Jack Donaghy’s Alter Ego on the Financial Crisis

October 7, 2008

Linked from the National Review:

Alec Baldwin on Bill Maher

The, the thing we have to remember, a friend of mine who is very close to the financial community in New York pointed out that Democrats have a lot of the responsibility for this as well. I mean, it was Clinton who killed the Glass-Steagall, and it happened under a Democratic president. Barney Frank and his committee, they, they kept propping up Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac saying everything’s fine, everything’s fine, everything’s good. And it was his job to know everything wasn’t fine. And Barney Frank let you down and let us down as well. And so, but I want to say there’s blame to go both ways. But I will say, I want to, I maybe keep beating this to death, but I still think anyone in this Congress who voted to add $140 billion to that bill, they should be ashamed of themselves. That is a disgrace. It’s a disgrace. This Congress is a disgrace, Democrat and Republican.

As we all know, he is completely wrong on Glass-Steagall as subprime had already started. It is interesting to see Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin’s Republican character on 30 Rock) inform the usually super-liberal Alec Baldwin’s opinion
