Bono is at the Lantos funeral today; Mitt is set to endorse McCain in Boston today and McCain says he will accept the endorsement only if he gets a free copy of the Book of Mormon from Mitt.

Oh, Thank God. I was worried there for a second. Hugs not drugs.

Studies have also showed higher educated Democrats prefer Obama.

I am a bit bothered that even after most of the Kennedys have endorsed Obama, and the Kennedys more or less "owning" the polictical machinery in that state, that Mass voters voted for Hillary.

Are Mass Democrats closet racists?

Hello Bro -

1) If the Kennedy's owned the political machinery - why have there been Republican Governors for most of the last twenty years?

2) Closet Racists - Are everywhere! Even in MA - But they did not want to make a woman Governor so they overcame it.

3) Nobody likes to be told who to vote for - so Hillary won because we wanted to show the Kennedy's that we can think for ourselves.

I like how all the American public already focuses on the elections one and a half years before they are finalised, with all the pre election campaigns and all.

It really keeps the American public from looking what is going on in the White House right now. With the media focusing on the elections, I think every president knows he can get through with more shit, without people really noticing.

kind of important. but does anybody focus on anything else that happens, politically?

it´s just too funny to watch how easily you can forget who´s still in office. now isn´t that what democracy and civil society are about, the race for the next guy in office, hah

in case no one bothers to look at the waterboarding thread,

the next candidate mc cain supported Bush who vetoed against the ban on waterboarding, a torture technique used by the spanish inquisition

does that mean if you vote for mc cain you support torture?

HELL YEAH!

And I'm sure you've never taken an unflattering picture in your entire life. Is he running this year?

Bush has plenty of buffoon pictures as well, actually someone could probably publish a book full of them the size of War And Peace

That said, perhaps the Mass electorate is more of a less educated "Dunkin Donuts Democrat crowd" than the Obama "Starbucks Latte Liberal crowd".

A look at Mass fashion vs NY fashion bespeaks that notion.
Yeah that must be it. Isn't your wife from MA? So is she less educated and less fashionable? Maybe she redeemed herself only by moving to Utah or Arizona or wherever.

Are you taking up the slack for Mitt in MA bashing?

MA has gay marriage too, what a disgrace. I'd rather have that than good (diamond approved TM) fashion.

Think Progress

Today, the Senate brought the Intelligence Authorization Bill to the floor, which contained a provision from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) establishing one interrogation standard across the government. The bill requires the intelligence community to abide by the same standards as articulated in the Army Field Manual and bans waterboarding.

Just hours ago, the Senate voted in favor of the bill, 51-45.

Earlier today, ThinkProgress noted that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), a former prisoner of war, has spoken strongly in favor of implementing the Army Field Manual standard. When confronted today with the decision of whether to stick with his conscience or cave to the right wing, McCain chose to ditch his principles and instead vote to preserve waterboarding.

Mr. McCain, a former prisoner of war, has consistently voiced opposition to waterboarding and other methods that critics say is a form torture. But the Republicans, confident of a White House veto, did not mount the challenge. Mr. McCain voted “no” on Wednesday afternoon.

The New York Times Times notes that “the White House has long said Mr. Bush will veto the bill, saying it ‘would prevent the president from taking the lawful actions necessary to protect Americans from attack in wartime.’”

After Bush vetoes the bill, McCain will again be confronted with a vote to either stand with President Bush or stand against torture. He indicated with his vote today where he will come down on that issue.

John McCain: He was against waterboarding before he was for it.
