More fun with Palin (and John McCain)

So everyone knows I am on "Team Obama". I've spent way too much on getting t-shirts (while supporting the campaign). So this is my week to give back to President Obama with facts about the competition. All of these have been emailed to me by different friends, so for your political enjoyment here you go.

My sister posted about Sarah Palin, click Liar, Liar, pants on fire

PBS is taking a poll to see if the public thinks she's qualified, click Hell to the NAW

Did you know that more than 55 million people are not registered to vote in the country?The breakdown is
about 8.1 million unregistered yet eligible blacks, another 8 million unregistered Hispanics and nearly 7.5 million unregistered people between the ages of 18 and 24. Get out and register at least two people this week if you can. Mr F$%k it said he is going to ride through our old hood and make sure folks are registered and offer to take them to the polls.

Have you received the email about being turned away at the polls if you are wearing political gear? If not it seems that from state to state the rules differ, so please be careful, the G.O.P is counting on people to not go home and change and come back, or not to be aware of the rule at all.

More GOP lies courtesy of the straight talk express:

Two reports tonight, one from the New York Times, and the other from Newsweek, contradict John McCain's statement this week that his campaign manager Rick Davis had no involvement with mortgage giant Freddie Mac for the last several years.
The Times reports:
One of the giant mortgage companies at the heart of the credit crisis paid $15,000 a month to a firm owned by Senator John McCain's campaign manager from the end of 2005 through last month, according to two people with direct knowledge of the arrangement. The disclosure contradicts a statement Sunday night by Mr. McCain that the campaign manager, Rick Davis, had no involvement with the company for the last several years. Mr. Davis's firm received the payments from the company, Freddie Mac, until it was taken over by the government this month along with Fannie Mae, the other big mortgage lender whose deteriorating finances helped precipitate the cascading problems on Wall Street, the people said..

...On Sunday, in an interview with CNBC and The New York Times, Mr. McCain responded to a question about Mr. Davis's role in the advocacy group through 2005 by saying that his campaign manager "has had nothing to do with it since, and I'll be glad to have his record examined by anybody who wants to look at it."

Hey Palin, shouldn't you at least know where your running mate stands on regulation... My two year knows he supported deregulation for 26 years. GOP are you still behind this mess?


read the rest here: I dunno


This is the time to educate ourselves on how the GOP is trying to spin this election. As I write this John McCain has decided to suspend his campaign so he can work on the economic bailout. This seems to me a chicken shit excuse to get out of the debate with Obama, and to address the real issues that are leading our country to depression.

Granted the bailout is important, no one knows better than I (and Shelly Shell) but this is the time for the PEOPLE to hear exactly what the candidates think. And no matter who your candidate is, we need to be able to see the candidates stand up and defend their platforms and really let us know why we should vote for them.

I'm leaving the comments section open for you all to speak on the issues, to post other links that would be useful to voters, emails whatever. Today is the day to get things done, its Time to make a change. Here is a refresher for those of you who need more inspiration, or just want to be moved:



YES WE CAN!
