Palin everywhere/ Biden Stifled By The One

The difference between Sarah Palin and Joseph Robinette Biden? Palin was kept from the press for a couple of days at the beginning of the campaign, Biden is being hidden from the media for the LAST several WEEKS of the campaign.

So, either Biden is a stupid man who says inopportune things at important moments or he's the foreign policy genius we were promised and the election of Barack Obama guarantees an international crisis within six months SPECIFICALLY because the world knows he is inexperienced, untested and likely to respond to aggression with "negotiations" and not strength.

Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, a Republican, plans to endorse Barack Obama for president Friday, The Associated Press reports.

Weld becomes at least the third prominent Republican this week to endorse the Democratic presidential candidate. Former Bush administration Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed Obama Sunday, and former spokesman Scott McClellan threw his support behind Obama Thursday.

Republican icon, Barry Goldwater's grand daughter has also come out for Obama, saying he would have been appalled at what has become of modern conservatism.

"Senator Obama is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate who will transform our politics and restore America's standing in the world," Weld said in a statement released Friday. "We need a president who will lead based on our common values and Senator Obama demonstrates an ability to unite and inspire.

"Throughout this campaign I've watched his steady leadership through trying times and I'm confident he is the best candidate to move our country forward," Weld said.

Weld planned to hold a news conference at Obama's campaign office in Salem at 11 a.m.


At least two dozen prominent Republicans -- former members of Congress, governors, government officials, academics and columnists -- have endorsed Obama's candidacy, according to a running tally at RepublicansForObama.org.

Well, let's see...we now have a Goldwater, a Nixon and an Eisenhower endorsing Obama and expressing their horror and distaste for the contemporary "conservative" party.

Three heirs to the most prominent names in the GOP!!

The difference is that Palin is going home to Alaska, with a greatly diminished reputation, and popularity, and Biden is going to the Whitehouse.

Wow!! Has anyone ever seen anything this bad?

Now, one of Mc's own campaign advisers, Charles Fried, has quit the campaign and endorsed Obama!!

Incredible.

Oh, you're right about Palin, Sayet; she's all over the place with her 150K wardrobe and 12K makeup trying to explore even more horror stories of her corrupt and thuggish reign in Alaska.

Now, McCain campaign worker admits to race baiting hoax!!

Are these people ALL thugs?

Exec VP of Fox News says:

"If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting."

Here's his post:

Moment of Truth
It had to happen.

Less than two weeks before we vote for a new president, a white woman says a black man attacked her, then scarred her face, and says there was a political motive for it.

Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old white volunteer for John McCain’s presidential campaign, says she was mugged at an ATM machine in Pittsburgh (my hometown) by a big black man. She further says he threw her down, then disfigured her by carving the letter “B” into her face with a sharp implement when he saw that she supported McCain, not Barack Obama.

Part of the appeal of, and the unspoken tension behind, Senator Obama’s campaign is his transformational status as the first African-American to win a major party’s presidential nomination.

That does not mean that he has erased the mutual distrust between black and white Americans, and this incident could become a watershed event in the 11 days before the election.

If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.

If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.

For Pittsburgh, a city that has done so much to shape American history over the centuries, another moment of truth is at hand.

You heard the story -- it was all over the right-wing blogs. Some poor white girl, 20-year-old Ashley Todd of Texas, was mugged at an ATM, but when the mugger (a big black guy) saw her car with the McCain sticker, he beat her and carved a letter "B" in her face with a knife. Apparently it was a dyslexic mugger because the "B" was carved backward, but whatever -- it proved that Obama's supporters were violent and craaazy!

Ever the blowhards, Fox News piled on, and their Executive VP of "news" wrote this:

Part of the appeal of, and the unspoken tension behind, Senator Obama’s campaign is his transformational status as the first African-American to win a major party’s presidential nomination.

Rank idiocy, of course. Could you expect anything less from Fox? But there was a caveat:

If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.

I guess McCain's quest is over.

Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter "B" in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker [...]

Investigators did say that they received photos from the ATM machine and "the photographs were verified as not being the victim making the transaction."

This afternoon, a Pittsburgh police commander told KDKA Investigator Marty Griffin that Todd confessed to making up the story.

The commander added that Todd will face charges; but police have not commented on what those charges will be.

The story was instantly suspect, as the pictures of her supposed beating, her Twitter account, and her timelines all patently contradicted themselves. But the wingnutosphere, with the healthy assist from Fox News, piled on anyway, letting their ideological blinders get in the way of reality. As usual.

And now they look like idiots. As usual.

As for Ms. Ashley Todd, being a liar and race-baiter is par for the course for College Republicans.

Meanwhile, the Indianians and the Jews are going for Obama.

Biden's gaffes seem to be mostly uncomfortable truths rather than mistakes. Perhaps Barack "Spread the Wealth" Obama has caught the disease from his running mate?
