John McCain Archives

I Don’t Trust Obama. He’s an, uh, Arab. The Crazy McCain Lady. And since we’re laughing at ignorant Republicans and SNL, we would be remiss in not pointing out that Palin is going to be on the show tonight. The Paper Trail. Remember a little while back when everyone was worried that the Obama camp’s Read More

What, no hot sauce? Unsurprisingly, this comes to us from the part of California I lived in as a child: that good old Inland Empire. The latest newsletter by an Inland Republican women’s group depicts Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama surrounded by a watermelon, ribs and a bucket of fried chicken, prompting outrage in political Read More

The third and blessedly final debate is at Hofstra University (REPRESENT!) in Hempstead, NY. Obama can knock McCain out, or to mix sports metaphors, he can simply hold serve: if the current polling holds more or less true Nov. 4, McCain could win every battleground state and still get rocked. (Don’t think the Republicans don’t Read More

Update: Rakia totally wins. McCain dialed back the MyFriendsOmeter to one. On tonight’s debate. Let us know what you think will or will not happen tonight, and we’ll add it to the list. I’ll start: John McCain will not bring up Bill Ayers. (shani-o) If McCain does mention Ayers, Obama will respond that he was Read More

New York has a daily feature on their Intelligencer blog in which two pundits/experts have an I.M. conversation about the campaign. In yesterday’s installment, the always-fiery Matt Taibbi goes in on Byron York over the economic crisis, which conservatives have blamed on minority homeowners and government programs to aid them. M.T.: So how are you Read More

McCain’s camp — probably helped along by the needling of Obama and Biden — have more or less guaranteed that William Ayers will come up in tonight’s final debate. But McCain doesn’t want to bring up Rev. Wright for the rest of the campaign, even though Palin and his top aides want him to. It’s Read More

To piggyback off shani-o’s post a bit… I remember a few years back when Ken Mehlman, who then headed the Republican National Committee, actually acknowledged in an apology to the NAACP the Republican’s zealously shitty history toward African Americans. It was an obvious attempt to loosen up the Democratic stranglehold on black voters, but it Read More

[vodpod id=Groupvideo.1644838&w=425&h=350&fv=videoId%3D187343] Nate from FiveThirtyEight, which we cite a lot, was on Colbert last night, and says Obama has a 90% chance of winning the election. (The site also gives him a 33% chance at a landslide.)

From Politico: John McCain is pulling out of Michigan, according to two Republicans, a stunning move a month away from Election Day that indicates the difficulty Republicans are having in finding blue states to put in play. McCain will go off TV in Michigan, stop dropping mail there and send most of his staff to Read More
