I'd like to watch the entire debate, but I'll be coming from a work function and am getting a ride from someone else, so we'll see how much I'll miss. Heck, they'll probably re-air it anyway, since it's only on at 6 PST.

1. anyone could create a fake web page, such as the one you listed.

or

2. why is it unreasonable that the McCain people would prepare this ad in advance? the question is why would some person at the wall street journal or who ever is responsible for placing web ads release it early?

unless someone can show where McCain bought and released this ad early it really is not a story.

Because I would like to watch the whole thing.

I know, it's difficult to believe, since I think you'd just like to lump us all into a group of libruls who want nothing more than to watch Olbermann rant and rave about heavily-edited sound bites as we drool in glorious rapture at how much we agree with him.

^ see? it starts.

in the midst of McCain's running around like a chicken with his head cut off, Obama's cool and calm demeanor, and the subsequent polling in Obama's favor,

diamond is here to remind us that Obama is black.

because blacks can dance.

and i'm betting so can diamond.

The True Story: What Really Happened at the White House

Whoa. Backstabbing liberals again. How many times do the conservatives have to get stabbed in the back before they know that reaching over the isle can be dangerous?

Yes, because clearly we can count on Rush Limbaugh for the unbiased truth.

Rush Limbaugh + Fox news

vs

CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, PBS

It's good to get another point of view.

Best of luck to you, my friend. My own therapist has recommended self-medicating with vodka come election day.

Yes, it is good to get another point of view. But Rush Limbaugh as a good source for another point of view? Shudder. You can do better than that.

What? No, another conservative or right-wing option other than the loathsome Rush Limbaugh. Anything must be better than that guy.

Rush has a bias, and so do most of the mainstream media. There is not "impartial" point of view. Rush limbaugh is the reason there is a conservative media. It's there to compete against the leftwing monopoly that went on for most of the 20th century.

For Christ sakes, the democrats openly tried to pass the Fairness Doctrine to stop him from speaking. The more democrats try to stop conservatives and their freedom of speech the more conservatives get martyred and popular.

There are other sources that agree with Rush. National Review. Rush Limbaugh is bad on certain areas with micro economics and often has to rely on them. Limbaugh is good at following the political machinations of the left. He's a media guy. At least he puts his sources at the bottom of his transcripts.

People like Al Franken have tried to compete with him and lost. Rush Limbaugh is very convincing and does more research than mainstream media by far. He shows the left's attacks and then rebuts them. He shows the left wing gaffes that the mainstream media ignore.

Why don't the left convince people? Because they can't. Socialists are horrible on economics and military. Even blaming Bush for socialist policies of giving debt to poor people is not going to convince people that putting people in power (democrats) who devised the ideas in the first place. You can blame some Republicans for overspending but electing Democrats who do the same thing isn't the answer. What have the democrats the past 2 year done? Spend, spend, and more spending. The answer is the real conservatives in the Republican party. They have a better idea of what to do. Cut spending. Keep taxes low so people want to invest in the U.S. I wish the conservatives here in Canada would cut their corporate taxes but they are in a minority government, but at least taxes are going down with a balanced budget.

Democrats run both houses of Congress. If the deal is so important why complain about Republicans? Just pass the thing and be done with it. Of course if it is another pork barrel plan they don't want to be blamed for it. By making it bipartisan the Republicans would be blamed as well. That's why Republicans washed their hands of it. If it's so important then why not just pass it Democrats? Who's stopping you? Rush asks some good questions.

I just think Rush is an irritating blowhard, is all.

Obviously, you disagree.

Mainstream media's bias is nowhere close to Rush's bias. If you are honestly suggesting that Rush's bias is comparable to the bias at NBC, ABC etc, you have lost all credibility on this one.

I find this a curious statement. Socialists are rather good on military. China invests heavily in their military, as did the USSR. North Korea invests in its military while its people starve.

True conservatives realise that an excessive big government milit-ind complex is yet another threat to freedom.



Strongbow, a socialist contributor to FYM, is obsessed with having a huge military.
