McCain Camp Pushed "Mutiliation" Story

Rather sick and pathetic.

"This Young, Black Adolf Hitler"

That was part of a letter distributed by Jill Jackson, the County Clerk in Johnson County Indiana. When employees complained to the police, she said it was just a joke. Har har har har har.
The letter does not mention Obama by name but makes references to his ties to a Chicago church whose pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, adheres to black liberation theology. It is heavy with racial references, criticizing the candidate's parentage with such comments as, "He is proud of his 'African heritage' (a father who got a white girl pregnant and deserted her)" and asking, "Where is the pride in his 'White heritage?'"

"Maybe those votes should be discarded"

Why does the GOP hate America?

Al-Qaida Supporters For McCain

An post on an al-Qaida linked web site is suggesting that a pre-election attack against the U.S. would help the G.O.P candidate get elected, and work in favor of the terrorists.
"If al-Qaida carries out a big operation against American interests," the message said, "this act will be support of McCain because it will push the Americans deliberately to vote for McCain so that he takes revenge for them against al-Qaida. Al-Qaida then will succeed in exhausting America till its last year in it."

Too Little Too Late

After weeks of hate filled rhetoric and whipping up audiences into a violent frenzy, the Wrinkly White Haired GuyTM has finally tried to rein things in. But when he tried to explain that all that stuff he's been saying is wrong, he gets booed. Indeed, the chickens are coming home.

Indeed, this must stop.

"That One"

As if the violent undertone of the Republican campaign isn't enough, supporters of the Wrinkly White Haired GuyTM apparently think his "That one" moment is a good thing.

SCOTUS Rejects Abu-Jamal Appeal

From the AP:
The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal for a new trial for death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted in the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia police officer.

"True only in the most technical sense"

Apparently when the Wrinkly White Haired GuyTM wrote that his first plane crash was because the engine stalled, he neglected to mention it stalled because he screwed up. Just like other crashes and accidents later in his flying career.
The official Navy report into the Corpus Christi accident on March 12, 1960, concludes that the AD-6 Skyraider trainer crashed because McCain failed to "maintain an airspeed above the stall speed." It attributed the accident to "the preoccupation of the pilot coupled with a power setting too low to maintain level flight." The single-engine prop plane sank to the bottom of Corpus Christi Bay. McCain was rescued by a helicopter after swimming to the surface.

Frat Boys For War

From Sam Stein at HuffPost:
In hopes of organizing a robust demonstration for the vice presidential debate this Thursday in St. Louis, the pro-Iraq War (and ostensibly pro-McCain) organization, Vets for Freedom, is resorting to offering local college fraternities hundreds of dollars if their members come and hold signs.

Another Taser Death

An armed bank robbery suspect died near Vancouver after Mounties used a Taser to subdue him. He had reportedly jumped out of a window "naked and bleeding", but police were unable to catch him. When he headed back for the home, a decision was made.
"At that point, believing that he was a possible armed robbery suspect, the fact that the firearm was unaccounted for and the fact that there was a known female still inside... officers used their [taser] in an effort to restrain this individual, which they subsequently did," the officer said.


Dowd Kicked, Confused

The Wrinkly White Haired GuyTM doesn't want Maureen Dowd traveling on his planes. So now she's claiming it's some kind of First Amendment violation. Huh?

McCain's Dictatorial Desire

Remember when 43 said how cool it would be if he was a dictator? It seems the Wrinkly White Haired GuyTM has a similar dream. It comes about thirty seconds into the Economic Bill Failure video found here.
"If I were dictator, which I always aspire to be."

I'm sure it will be explained away as a joke, but it's noteworthy that nobody, including the candidate, is laughing, and it's hardly a lighthearted moment.

Be sure to watch the entire Des Moines Register interview.
