The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Sarah Palin, last night:

“If I called all the shots, and if I could wave a magic wand,” Palin told her traveling press corps as she stood on the tarmac here, “I would be sitting at a kitchen table with more and more Americans, talking to them about our plan to get the economy back on track and winning the war and not having to rely on the old conventional ways of campaigning that includes those robocalls and includes spending so much money on the television ads that, I think, is kind of draining out there in terms of Americans’ attention span.”

Barack Obama, today:

Brutal. Is there anyway we can get Bobby Jindal in on this act so we can take out the entire GOP farm team on November 4th?

    The other thing I’ll mention: more than a few talking heads on the teevee have described the complaints about McCain’s robocalls as real "inside-baseball" type politics. WTF? Don’t most people know what these calls are? Or is it just that they think so few people know how slimy the McCain calls have become?

    My wife, who really tries to stay away from politics, emailed me last week about the calls. She’d found out about them from a friend who’d forwarded a story. The subject line of her email: "I hate John McCain". I think the press has no idea just how many people are aware of the calls.

    Yes, it really was Obama’s fault for not doing townhalls with McCain as The Mav wanted him to. Steely McCain was wounded being snubbed, so Obama brought it on himself. Now Palin criticizing their robocalls, but they’re necessary because she doesn’t have a magic wand.

    Here’s the transcript:

    In the final days of campaigns, the say-anything, do-anything politics too often takes over. We’ve seen it before. And we’re seeing it again today. The ugly phone calls. The misleading mail and TV ads. The careless, outrageous comments. All aimed at keeping us from working together, all aimed at stopping change.
     
    It’s getting so bad that even Senator McCain’s running mate denounced his tactics last night. As you know, you really have to work hard to violate Governor Palin’s standards on negative campaigning.

    Of course, the written words don’t do it justice. You really have to watch the clip when you get a chance.

Dan Quayle was an amateur next to Palin. The folks over at redstate.com must be delusional to keep supporting her.

    It is a sure sign of the political death rattles when political campaigns begin shedding all temerity in desperate attempts to sling the shit at their leading opponents, And with the Mccain campaign, the fecal quotient was high to begin with. I genuinely don’t believe it has dawned on Teh Saint Magoo, just how far things have slipped, and how out of control his monster is. I think he actually believes he’s running an ordinary tough campaign, whereupon he has repudiated the more radical elements in his party. Palin is like a one woman traveling hate circus, seemingly like she’s the only person on the ticket and cultivating her very own cult, I guess for future stardom in the GOP. It is all a sorry ass spectacle, and despite it all, Mccain will still get at least 45 % of the vote IMO, and still has an outside chance of winning. What a country!

    A reader over at TPM has long distance psycho-therapy take on McCain’s latest case of the angries.

    I’ve never really cared whether McCain was an honorable man who lost his way, or was never all that honorable in the first place. It’s seemed to me a distinction without a difference– I’m reminded of the debate in Pogo about whether The Odyssey was written by Homer, or another blind Greek poet of the same name.

    That having been said, McCain’s defense of robocalling to Chris [Wallace’s] is fascinating. It’s so evident that McCain is lying through his teeth–and knows it. But instead of feeling guilty, contrite (like a man of honor), or oblivious (like a sociopath), McCain just gets angrier.

    I get the sense that the further he drifts from his (perhaps former) ideals, the angrier he gets at those who (in his mind) forced him to stray.

    "My fellow prisoners" indeed.

    I love the way the Obama campaign works this kind of thing into the stump speeches SO goddamn quickly. I mean, the difference in agility between these two campaigns is striking.

    Obama and his people understand the difference between strategy and tactics. McCain’s people do not.

    Obama’s people adapt to events by incorporating them into their tactical repetoire, without allowing them to upset the overall strategy. McCain’s people just keep going to the racism and paranoia well over and over again.

    Obama has brains, patience, and nerves of steel, all of which were honed by a life where he had to fight for every advance he got; in addition, he sought out as his life partner a woman who is his intellectual, moral and strategic equal. McCain was born to power and privilege, had a daddy powerful enough to insulate him from most of the consequences of his actions, and has coasted most of his life on good looks and a surface charm that he used to attract a rich heiress, and which masks a volcanic, out-of-control, callous personality.

    Why, there’s this hateful bigot passing out bumper stickers which are far tamer than most of what we’ve seen at McCain rallies…and there just happens to be a group of Muslims and a brown-skinned McCain "official" nearby to repudiate him. What an amazing coincidence! Why even the white Christian guy is offended by such gross smears!

    Of course, there is truth even in theater. That kind of thing will turn off Muslim voters thinking of voting for McCain and that kind of hateful message should have no place in a campaign. But those ships sailed long ago without Johnny Drama on board.

    McCain knows what he is doing, and approves Palin’s message. Some pundit on this Sunday’s "Meet the Press" noted that McCain got rid of the advisers who wanted him to keep to the high road. Another pundit amazingly defended McCain, frankly noting that the negative campaign style was working "until the economy turned around on them."

    And strangely, McCain keeps insisting that if only Obama had agreed to do what McCain wanted (e.g., go to Iraq together, have 10 town hall meetings), then all this unpleasantness might have been avoided. There is something distinctly odd in McCain’s refusal to take responsibility for the nastiness that his campaign has been spewing.

    @ Jeff:

    Seeing the bumper sticker folk slink away on film doesn’t mean shit when it is likely they marched back triumphantly once the cameras were gone (and were likely not challenged again).

    It’s called denial, and not the river in Egypt. We can rationalize all sorts of shit, when there is an over arching goal that MUST be met, at least in our own minds. Mccain isn’t stupid, and somewhere inside he knows he’s gone off his own reservation of principles. But the "mission" he has set himself on crowds out conscious moral reasoning, and he has purposely surrounded himself with people who could care less about moral reasoning and boundaries of any kind in the service of winning. Which in the end, is the final and only measure of truth and value, any good wingnut holds for defining success. In other words, Mccain has clamped off that part of his brain that regulates decency, and fully opened the Lizard part. That’s what I meant by not knowing, He’s moved to Crazy Wingnuttown, USA., where ‘not knowing" is the Coin of the Realm

    Well, let’s see. Sarah Palin is the younger bimbo with the pretty face who was chosen for a plum job instead of a far more experienced and competent — but perhaps less glamorous — Republican woman such as Olympia Snowe or Kay Bailey Hutchinson. She espouses policies that are not only anti-woman but stunningly so. She’s surrounded by men who feel it necessary to shield and micromanager her, and who can’t wait to show her off in DC. And feminist-minded people, left, right or whatever, are calling bullshit on this sham.

    Gee, ya think?

    I don’t care whether John McCain actually believes this "feminist left" drivel himself or not. He’s a douchebag for talking like this in public, period.

    Photographer Joe Eddins and I headed over to the closest one and found a steady line of voters hoping to cast ballots early. Most seemed to be Obama supporters and several had come from the rally. Nearly all the voters were black.
    Also at the polling site was a group of loud and angry protesters who shouted and mocked the voters as they walked in. Nearly all were white.
    As you can see from these videos, no one held anything back. People were shouting about Obama’s acknowledged cocaine use as a young man, abortion and one man used the word "terrorist." They also were complaining that Sundays are for church, not voting.

    McCain supporters are at the polls heckling voters.
