McCain sounds like he's out to pasture:

http://www.wcsh6.com/video/default.a...ject=850878100

Reporter asked him what Palin's national security experience is and he said "energy" and then talked about the natural gas pipeline, saying that Palin knows more about energy than anyone else in America (!).

It's like a comedy routine.

Talk about cognitive dissonance.



John McCain is a Good Man who's a Straight Talker and a Maverick who will bring Change to Washington. that's all we need to know.

that and the fact that Sarah Palin has a baby. that's all you need to know about her.

stop with your questions. you're like the media, asking rude things. like Putin, she'll talk when she's good and ready, and on her terms, so long as you are "deferential" and aren't sexist.

He is. Like I said before he's riding her coattails right now, when some of you realize her coattails aren't long enough you're going to realize you picked the wrong guy, and your wrong guy picked the wrong woman.

He absolutely is. Every single shot on tv of McCain campaigning in the last week is actually of McCain standing next to Palin as she speaks at the podium.

wow. you can't make this shit up:


Quote:
"We're not going to spend $3 million of your tax dollars to study the DNA of bears in Montana," McCain said earlier this year, referring to a request from Montana for federal money to study the endangered grizzly bear. "I don't know if it was a paternity issue or criminal, but it was a waste of money."
Quote:
According to a “summary of requests for federal appropriations” posted to her budget office’s website earlier this year, Palin requested millions of federal dollars for everything from improving recreational halibut fishing to studying the mating habits of crabs and the DNA of harbor seals.

You posted this same thing last night. One has nothing to do with the other. For starters, the clip you post is an obviously doctored clip. The creator makes no effort to make it look like it's real.

Secondly, Olbermann was ripping the guy a new one for making fun of Jon Stewart's monologue on the first Daily Show after 9/11 - a monologue that YOU complimented in the 9/11 thread.

I don't understand why you're posting an unfunny doctored clip in response to a special comment.

Following his "honorable" presidential candidate's example of making stuff up to score slimy points?

I don't understand how Olbermann can say McCain and Republicans have phony tears about September 11th when he scolded Gibson for saying someone had phony tears. I read your explanation a few pages back, and I just don't get it. How is this not hypocrisy?

I think the point is Keith said he would never doubt the sincerity of anyone's pain, and is now calling McCain's use of 9/11 as phony crocidle tears...

It is hypocritical.

No, I think Olbermann's main point is that McCain and the Republicans, as they did in 2004, are politicizing 9/11 to their advantage. The RNC said they were going to pay a special tribute to 9/11 with a video that even children should see. What they did instead was show some of the most horrific pictures in order to rile up old emotions, and cheer on stories of a war hero who "knows" how to capture bin Laden & protect our country.

Politics, not tribute.

Yes, Matthews is now a Second Lieutenant, and Olbermann is now Tom Brokaw's personal assistant.



SCORE!
