Humor on the Campaign TrailFebruary 29, 2008
Happy leap day! No show today, but I thought I’d devote this once-in-four-year opportunity to humor on the campaign trail. My personal two favorites are here:
The first I dedicate to Dave from California:
Diebold Accidentally Leaks Results Of 2008 Election Early
Keep away from those goons, Dave!
The second I’ve placed in the comments section. It gives the “bar pick-up lines” of all the Republican and Democratic Nominees for President.
Feel free to add your own!
Rising AntisemitismFebruary 28, 2008
Often disguised as anti-Israel in nature, antisemitism is on the rise everywhere: from typical sources such as Farrakhan, the United Nations, and Europe to new places like the American Methodist Church.
Guest: Ty Brown, founder of the Dreams End Blog who has been investigating the Methodist Church proposal to divest from companies doing business with the Israeli military, but not from Halliburton or companies doing business with Iran or Saudi Arabia.
Is antisemitism the only prejudice stomached by people on the Left?
Do they support another Holocaust?
Assuming not, then what would they do with all the Jews who are inconveniently living in Judaea when they destroy the Jewish State?
How would THEY respond if the Mexican Government were raining 40 missiles a day into Texas?
Condemn the USA for denying Mexico fuel supplies in response?
One thing we do know, American Jews are regularly condemned for lobbying their Government on behalf of Israel or for protesting those who are anti-Israel. Few complain about the gun lobby, the pro-choice lobby, the pro-life lobby, or the pro-Irish lobby (which puts Irish immigrants ahead of every other), the way the “pro-Israel lobby” is condemned with books like Mearsheimer’s and Walt’s. Meanwhile, virtually nothing is written about the extremely influential (but shadowy) Saudi lobby which lobbies in secret, unlike pro-Israel supporters who lobby in public. In the Comment Section is a detailed review in The New Republic of Mearsheimer’s and Walt’s recent antisemitic screed, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy. Note how M&W blame both 9/11 and the Iraq War on American Jews.

Ralph Nader: Republican ToolFebruary 25, 2008
You don’t have to believe in conspiracy theories to know that Ralph Nader is the best hope that McCain has for winning the election
I don’t know whether this megalomaniac, funded almost entirely now by the Republican Party, actually supports George Bush or just likes to see his name in the press. I do know he’s the Republican Party’s greatest ally. Maybe he’s funded by COINTELPRO?
It’s one thing to believe in transferring wealth from the poor and middle class to the superrich, creating a theocracy in America, supporting the deaths of millions in an endless war against a country that never attacked us, destroying the environment, creating a massive debt giving our country away to China and Saudi Arabia, licking the boots of oil company CEOs, and taking away the civil rights of gay people and Black people and Latinos. If you do, then you’re a Conservative. I don’t like it, but at least you know what you stand for.
But to claim to be a “progressive” and then devote your entire life to pleasing Karl Rove and Dick Cheney is disgusting….truly disgusting.
I dislike George W. Bush’s policies. I loathe Ralph Nader.
