Just do not say or do anything stupid. Just stand back, stay on point and watch the really big show. There is not a lot you need to do while the Democrats implode.
We know that you are a leader, but just watch for a couple of weeks.


You forgot to put on the list: Don't call your wife a cunt and propose she participates in a stripping contest in Sturgis.

Don't speak in public at all. That would be the safe thing for the Wrinkled White Dude.

Gay Gary

Advise: Don't become your girlfriend's baby's daddy!

(this is why we need more gay politicians in the US America - scandals don't leave behind a trail of kids!)


Advice for old John: take up lawn bowling, early bird specials and get some rest. There are at least two generations ready to do the job, maybe three. Slow down before you fll down.


or ambiguously gay ones like Larry Craig. Or Mark Foley. Isn't he cured yet?

Gay Gary

oldie but a goodie - Rielle Hunter's baby's daddy gettin' pretty!

(And to think I thought he was tappin' McGrevey!)

John - Start talking more about how you will demonstrate you are different from Bush. He has done this already, but many Dems don't pay attention because it conflicts with one of their main talking points. Get more specific about your energy policies and how you reduce the deficit, with spending cuts to balance or exceed tax cuts - Congress can't help themselves, so it won't be able to be done without a line item veto.

Don't go volunteering your wife to enter the "cow chip beauty pageant" that turns out to be a topless beauty pageant or the like - even smaller gaffes like that will get the mainstream media's attention and distract from the important issues.


oops - that should have been Ms. Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD. Kevin's description of this event came after he had smoked crack...


What's this answering a McCain dig with an Edward's dig? C'mon, Gigi, you can do better than that?

Last I heard, Edwards wasn't even a runner up...


John: if you're going to flip on something, you need to flip on abortion, or get a pro-choice running mate like Giuliani or Bloomberg. the country's going lib. You are one ... go for it!


Wrinkled White Dude: I wouldn't let my Grandpa to drive across town, and he's 2 years younger than you. Give it up, sir. Please???


Bush lied us into a war but who cares? John Edwards had an affair!
Forged letters? Lies which put us into a pointless war? Who cares?
Let the media feeding frenzy begin. Bush and his evil cronies are laughing all the way to the bank. John McCain had an affair, dumped his wife after she was in a car accident, and married Cindy who had lots of money. Where is all the outrage over that?
Fuck the National Enquirer. Edwards is no longer in office and was not even on the "long list" of VP candidates. This is a personal thing and I don't give a shit if he lied to the anthropomorphic lumps of feces from the NE who call themselves journalists. They deserved no less.


One thing we know for sure is Olde Dryballs ain't going to be fathering no babies.


Good to hear from you, alprazolam....


Does anybody suppose that Clinton is going to bring up the question of Obambam being a citizen of these United States and if he is or is not qualified to be POTUS?
Being that his father is a forigner and his mother was only 18 at the time of his birth, you would think that the question would come up.
I think Bill is just shitty enough to raise the issue.
Is this gonna be the August thing?
Buttah up the pop corn darlin', the big show is getting ready to start.


This says it all:

'National Enquirer 1, LA Times 0'


Any idiot - let me repeat that for those of you who didn't get it the first time: any idiot that thinks there's anything at all to this stupid Obama-citizenship thing doesn't deserve to vote, live in a democratic republic, father children, or even get out of bed in the morning.


We will see.
Dayum joanie, it is getting harder and harder to draw you out.
But thanks for showing up. I miss you sweetness. Your magic fingers, your way with words....


Hey joanie, what if some of the crap floating about these innertubes is true? The latest being that in order to be a citizen, one of Obambams parents needs to have been a citizen for ten years with at least five of those years being past the age of sixteen. His daddy was never a US citizen, but mom is. But hey, she was only 18 when she dropped that calf. 16+5=21, not 18.
May all be BS, but hey, shouldn't we know for sure? I honestly would hate to find it to be true. I have no use for Obambam what so ever. A man like him can destroy this nation. But have I less use for what will happen in Detroit, Los Angeles or any other city with a large black population. That is a pain that we do not need. It would set back race relations in this country months and months.
Please put some salt on the pop corn.


chuck, remember all those Rove-appointed federal prosecutors and attorneys in the Justice Department that had to take the Republican loyalty oath before Monica Goodling would hire them? Don't you think if there were any there there, they'd find it?

You guys get spun by your tails. Enjoying the ride?

BTW, just got back from Chelan. Where's your place?



Obama Is Not a Natural Born Citizen

Senator Obama was born in Hawaii in 1961, after it became a state on August 21st, 1959. Obama became a citizen at birth under the first section of the 14th Amendment:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

chucks, this is what gets Lou Dobb's panties in a twist...illegal immigrants in this country give birth to children and the children are automatically US citizens because they were BORN here...


In Manson, right above Wapato Point. Hope you had a great time. Maybe you got to try out a few winery's. Gotta get over there next week to check on dad.


Paternity test next...if negative this pretty much goes away, if he's yet again lied it's over for him.


Manson, that hotbed of casino corruption? I dropped a hundred bucks there in no time at all...

Thursday night the temp was over a hundred I believe. I didn't know how to turn on the air conditioning. Otherwise, a great trip!

Yes, we did one winery but can't remember the name. Between Manson and Chelan and up a little hill. Started with a B. Kind of an odd name as I recall. But perhaps I just wasn't paying attention. Very nice. Music by the Lake Boys.

I always have a great time over there.

Is Mc Cain a citizen of the US?


Probably a moot point like it was for Goldwater since he didn't win either.


The citizenship is probably also a moot point for Obama even though they were idiots about the cover up of his birth certificate - that's what brought up the skepticism in the first place. There's also the ditty about McCain's citizenship. (In some ways, it would be interesting to see them both declared ineligible (I didn't say that))

There will be more important issues that decide the elections in November. Thanks for your contribution, John Edwards...


Is this the new Hussein salute.


John Edwards isn't running for Prez, anymore than Larry Craig. We do however, have pictures of McCain hugging Bushler.


I don't remember hearing Edwards ever use the C word referencing his wife

Umm, his first wife BTW.


"I don't remember hearing Edwards ever use the C word referencing his wife

Umm, his first wife BTW."

Nor did McCain. If you believe that garbage from the left wing blogs that has been proven to be lies, you have less intelligence than I thought.


"a credit c**t"

here he refused to answer

"John McCain's temper is well documented. He's called opponents and colleagues "shitheads," "assholes" and in at least one case "a fucking jerk."...

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days."

and finally from the Guardian UK:
"On Wednesday, a new poll stated that John McCain has regained a narrow lead over Barack Obama in Florida, largely due, in the pollster's words, to "your prototypical Hillary Clinton supporters" crossing over to McCain (pdf).

It's more than strange. How can purported feminists even contemplate voting for McCain when his creepy, fighter-jock attitude toward women has left a trail throughout his public career? Let's look at just three dots of gender jokes over time and see if we can connect them.

First, there's the boffo ape-rape joke. "Did you hear the one about the woman who is attacked on the street by a gorilla, beaten senseless, raped repeatedly and left to die?" McCain reportedly asked an audience during his 1986 Senate campaign, according to Arizona's Tucson Citizen. "When she finally regains consciousness and tries to speak, her doctor leans over to hear her sigh contently and to feebly ask, 'Where is that marvelous ape?'"

McCain's aides said last month that he doesn't recall telling the joke, but they don't deny that he did.

Then there's the c-word. In his book The Real McCain, Cliff Schecter writes that at a 1992 campaign stop, with reporters nearby, McCain was joined by his wife Cindy and two campaign aides. "At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, 'You're getting a little thin up there.' McCain's face reddened, and he responded, 'At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.' McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days."

Finally, there's the Buffalo Chip moment at the Sturgis biker rally earlier this week. We don't know what Cindy was thinking when her husband lost it over his male-pattern baldness, but on Monday, when McCain volunteered her for a "beauty pageant" before some 50,000 bikers at the annual South Dakota motorcycle rally, she played along, gamely waving and smiling. "I was looking at the Sturgis schedule," said the senator, reading from notes, "and noticed that you had a beauty pageant, so I encouraged Cindy to compete. I told her with a little luck, she could be the only woman to serve as both the first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip."

McCain hasn't spoken about it, but many in the press have claimed for him that he probably had no idea the contest was topless and occasionally bottomless (much less that, during the weeklong boozin', druggin' hogfest some of the girls occasionally get roughed up, all noted in this ESPN dispatch, widely circulating days before McCain's visit). But presumably, McCain did realise that this was a biker rally - a good place to find someone you want to have a beer with.

So what if he knew, some liberals, like sex columnist Dan Savage, counter. "We're not the party of idiotic, knee-jerk prudery, and we look ridiculous when we pretend that we are."

So, Klueless, what's your source(s) to refutes these four sources?


BTW, the YouTube one would have put the matter to rest had he said a simple "no."


NE claims that IS a valid pic of him holding baby. JE denied that on Dateline. Is he still lying?
Ex-girlfriend will not pursue DNA; so will the world ever know.
For all we know it could be GB's baby or may be even Larry Craig's?
What a frickin farce this is.


Ah the lies, even Liberals can't get them right. Joanie posted this, notice she made sure it was the first wife McCain called the "C-word"...

"I don't remember hearing Edwards ever use the C word referencing his wife

Umm, his first wife BTW."

Now scroll down Joanies link a little that she uses for more proof that McCain used the "C-word" and you'll see this...

"McCain was joined by his wife Cindy and two campaign aides. "At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, 'You're getting a little thin up there.' McCain's face reddened, and he responded, 'At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt."

Now did McCain marry two woman named Cindy? Get your facts straight Joanie. His first wife was named Carol.


And this from the Skedaddler herself who is queen of the "duck and dodge"

"BTW, the YouTube one would have put the matter to rest had he said a simple "no."



I'm a nurse, and have worked my share in geriatrics. I've voted for a few Republicans over the years, but I could not vote for John McCain. He is not physically and mentally fit to be president because of his age.

Jimmy the Grape

Edwards is a sideshow. He has nothing to do with the 2008 election, he was eliminated months ago. McCain, despite all the fog from the R's that he should be losing by smaller numbers, is losing nonetheless. He is a terrible candidate. Barack Obama is a phenomenal candidate.


Get out your reading glasses, Steven.

Nicely put, Mr. Grape.


"what's your source(s) to refutes these four sources?"

Ph(J)oanie has a short memory. This stuff has already been vetted and the source was not credible. You know I don't believe the moveon.org plant at McCain's town hall meeting that accused him of doing this as shown on youtube. That guy was an idiot, so I revert back to my original comment on that issue, Why don't you check the truth out by using snopes.com and if its true and if you're not sure, why waste everyone's and your time by posting it - or do you even care ?
Making that an issue is like saying that I beliieve that Obama is really Moslem, like 12% of the population actually believes.

I don't dispute the part about Sturgis, SD. It was a gaffe by him and has lost its shelf life, just as saving 3-4% gasoline by keeping your tires properly inflated (which is a significant over-exaggeration) by Obambam.


"Now did McCain marry two woman named Cindy? Get your facts straight Joanie. His first wife was named Carol."

Further evidence...


Again with Joanie, even with the facts put in front of her she cant admit she is/was wrong.


And let me guess Jimmy, the reason Hussein "is a phenomenal candidate" is because he has a "D" behind his name. Am I close?


Joanie, you are just wasting your time! LOL Laughin' my butt off here.


Sparky, you are not buying into the "I was refering to Edwards first wife" bit. Edwards has only been married once so she could easily have said his "Only wife". She was clearly talking about McCains first wife who she was claiming he called the "C-word".

Now use that education you claim to have and...Wait, you said before there was "no friggin ice at the North Pole". Nevermind.


It's best to just put the shovel down, Steven.


Sparky, remember we were talking about the Antartica Ice Shelf and Joanie said the Polar Bears were dying there. What a laugh that was. But of course not as funny as yours. You want me to link that website again to show you were wrong about there being "No friggin ice at the North Pole". I checked it out last week and there was still ice there.


My observation is that either Joanie is wasting her time here or a number of the rest of us are - but not both ways. Yeah, Sparky, you and I live in a parallel universes and being ourselves in doing so.

It would be nice that rather than the partisan sniping and bickering - if we could focus more often on items or universal interest - like the Summer Olympics, or the tragic passings of Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes over the weekend. Gone too soon !!

Gay Gary

What's this answering a McCain dig with an Edward's dig? C'mon, Gigi, you can do better than that?

Come on Joanie, you have to let us get it out of our system!

Did anyone hear Ian Punnett on Coast to Coast last night make fun of Edwards "apparently being 99% truthful isn't good enough anymore" remark?

This week's Enquirer is awesome, I just picked it up at QFC with "EDWARDS LOVE CHILD - THE PICTURES!" on the front! All joking aside, the Edwards love child is pretty adorable. However, his baby's mamma - is ... uhhh, can't a millionaire ex-senator do better than that?

Oculus Bleu made a stupid little fan film about John Edwards and his baby's mamma that I refuse to post here because it's far too incendiary.

'At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.'

OK, I have to admit, that is pretty funny. American want a president who is a man's man, not someone completely emasculated like we've had the last three times (I mean, come on, I'm gay for chrissakes and even I want a man's man in the "O" Office!). That's not enough to make me change my vote from Bob Barr but it's sure tempting.


KS, I hear the 4x100-meter freestyle is a must see tonight.
