Straight talk express admits the truth


We're there for the oil...

“Senator Obama and Senator Clinton want to set a date for withdraw. That's what they want to do is get everybody out. I believe that would lead to catastrophe and chaos and that we would have the whole region including the whole region and the country in such turmoil that we would be required to come back to the region. And I just want to promise you this. My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will - that will then prevent us - that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East.”

Of course, McCain gets a pass from the media on this while everyone keeps talking about Rev Wright.

Crooks and Liars has more...

UPDATE Bullshit! He wasn't talking about the first war, he was talking about THIS war. Obama and Clinton were NOT in the senate during the time of the first war. Read and listen to the full context of his remark AGAIN!
“Senator Obama and Senator Clinton want to set a date for withdraw. That's what they want to do is get everybody out.

...and wasn't the rationale for the FIRST war against Iraq was the liberation Kuwait?
FLACHBACK 1991 and Daddy Bush:
President Bush told the world from the Oval Office, one day after the expiry of the United Nations ultimatum for Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait: "The world could wait no longer."

[...]

"Our objectives are clear. Saddam Hussein's forces will leave Kuwait. The legitimate government will be restored to its rightful place and Kuwait will once again be free."

Try again McBush...

Take the Bush_McCain challenge

What better way to start the weekend than to take this challenge and remind yourself why a vote for McCain is actually a vote for George W. Bush for a third term.

100 years


It's simple...a vote for McCain is a vote for the same.

Here are a few pics from last night's Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey dinner, featuring guest host Senator Joe Biden.

I didn't take as many pictures as I did in the past but other bloggers were on the scene and so everything was covered. I'll post footage from last night's event later.

Off to the big show!


Well, I'm all dressed up for the annual Connecticut Democrats Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Dinner. This year's special guest is Senator Joe Biden and if it's like the previous years (2006: Barack Obama, 2007: Nancy Pelosi), then it should be a great time.

I'll bring you all the details from the big Democratic get-together later.

Limbaugh wants a riot


Seems like someone is doing hillbilly heroin again...Olbermann has the details.

The real McCain


What better way to start the week than examining the silliness of "the angry" John McBush.

Here's McBush attempting to explain his votes on making Martin Luther King Day a federal holiday.



Here's the straight-talker giving his views on the Iraq 100 year war.


John McBush=more of the same.
