Nobody Puts Baby In A Corner... Or Nicolle Wallace Under A Bus

For a campaign that has whined about sexism in the media, it ends up being awfully ironic when you read how the dudely McCain advisers chose Palin because she would look good on magazine covers » 10/29/08 10:00am 10/29/08 10:00am or when the men in charge of the campaign try to pin Wardrobe-gate on the visible woman in the campaign.

I've written before about how this election feels like the year in high school that I got breasts and boys started paying attention to me » 10/24/08 7:20pm 10/24/08 7:20pm. You'd think that this was the year that women finally proved that they can get elected to office, will show up to vote and care about politics, even though all those things have…

Finally: The NY Times' Post-Mortem On The Still-Breathing McCain…

Readers of this weekend's New York Times Magazine » 10/22/08 1:20pm 10/22/08 1:20pm might be forgiven if, upon reading on the McCain campaign, they check their calendars to make sure they didn't miss voting in the 2008 Presidential election. It reads more like an evisceration of a failed Presidential campaign than an exploration of the of a…

GOP Pinheads: Women Aren't "Feminist" Unless They Vote For Sarah Palin

Earlier this week, I praised Sarah Palin for embracing the term "feminist" » 10/22/08 12:00pm 10/22/08 12:00pm when so many young women shun the f-word. Well I am reneging my praise, because now she's taking the term and using it as a . Yesterday at a rally in Nevada, Governor Palin criticized Barack Obama for being a "faux feminist" according to the ,…

Virginia Republicans Would Like You To Vote Against Evil, So Don't Vote…

  • This is an actual direct mail piece from the Virginia Republican Party, encouraging people to vote against "evil." I encourage people to vote against evil, too — the kind of evil that would stoke racial fears to win an election. [Mark Halperin]
  • Also, please vote against the kind of evil that thinks it's funny to…

Sarah Palin Is More Than A Little Confused About, Well, Everything

With the first Presidential debates and a week of Pali-blunders under our collective belts, it was time to breathe easy and have a few drinks this weekend in honor of Maureen Dowd having been kicked off the "Straight" Talk Express » 9/29/08 10:00am 9/29/08 10:00am for talking less straight than either John McCain or Sarah Palin. But then there were…

John McCain Walks Away From Debates, His Pride, And America Itself

Yesterday, John McCain announced a temporary end to partisan politicking and asked Barack Obama to join him in holding hands, singing "Kumbaya" and postponing the Presidential debates until Congressional intervention ends the financial crisis, which most economists agree will be some time next year at the earliest.… » 9/25/08 10:00am 9/25/08 10:00am

McCain's Campaign Adviser Declares War On Media, New York Times

John McCain's senior campaign adviser, Steve Schmidt (seen here with the cardboard cutout the GOP plans to use to fill McCain's position after his death or descent into full dementia) has decided that it's not enough to campaign against Barack Obama, he's got to campaign against The Media to win the election. Luckily » 9/23/08 10:00am 9/23/08 10:00am

Conventional Crap: Joe Lieberman Is Made-Up But Not Imaginary

Another endless day that starts in Crap dawns in St. Paul, but luckily my soon-to-be-embedded friend Spencer » 9/03/08 10:00am 9/03/08 10:00am is (virtually) here to help understand why some GOP makeup artist slathered Joe Lieberman in this much pancake foundation and — worse — how I spent 20 minutes staring at his ass instead of his made-up mug.…

Obama-Paltrow '08: With Elitism And Arugula For All

Although on Thursday Moe and I decided » 8/04/08 10:00am 8/04/08 10:00am that the McCain ad featuring Paris Hilton was simply dumb, it is now clear that it is all part of McCain's evil genius. While we were watching Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, we were missing the subliminal message that Obama is the Antichrist! No, really, people actually…
