praying for war with the russians

I stopped watching ABC’s “This Week” shortly after David Brinkley retired. I didn’t like what Snufalufagus did when he took over the host spot, and let everyone go. As much as Sam Donaldson and George WIll pissed me off, I hated not having them and Cokie Roberts around to share my Sunday mornings. Well, it looks as though Snuf, faced with rapidly dropping ratings, decided to bring the old gang back. (Maybe this happened a long time ago, but I’m just now figuring it out.) So, it’s with a great deal of happiness that I share this clip of the seasoned journalists savagely picking at the carcass of John McCain, whose campaign fell apart with the economy.

And, I don’t imagine that it’ll help McCain much that, since then, economists have started slamming his chief economic advisor, Phil Gramm, and that, despite trying to keep it quiet, word is getting out that his campaign manager, Rick Davis, took in $1.8 million lobbying for the deregulation of Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac. Not a good week for the maverick.

But, help might be on the way. Word is, the Russians are testing new missiles, and
moving their Navy into Venezuela. (They can smell blood in the water. They know we’re weak physically, economically and psychologically.) One suspects that the economy will stay the lead story through this Friday’s debate, but you never know. McCain may get lucky, and the Russians might declare war.

    That was nice. Especially the part about it being good for McCain to keep the focus on Palin … anything is better than the issues.

    (Sorry, had to.)

    It is rather striking that talking about Palin is better for McCain than talking about McCain. I mean, how bad do you have to be for a focus on Palin to be an improvement?

    I figured they’d capitalize on that embassy bombing recently, but that didn’t pan out. It really looks like they are running out of ammunition. It’s a pretty sad state of affairs that all they have is Palin’s stupidity to run on.

    That Chavez sure is a go-getter. It will be interesting to see how Obama chooses to interact with him as president.

    McCain needs to issue a press release immediately stating that his wife is pregnant with severely retarded twins, and that they will be having them, “because it’s God’s will”. Then they need to start a push poll asking voters in swing states whether or not they would vote for Obama if they knew that he was once Mohamed Atta’s lover. Then they need to set fire to the Capital building and declare martial law.

    I watched the entire program. For the first time in my life I can say that I really like George Will!

    He wrote a column today that continues this slam on McCain.

    I am beginning to think that the rich Republicans want Obama to win because they are scared about their own finances.

    I bet there are a lot of Republicans who would rather endure four years of a Democratic exec than four years of McCain/Palin.

    I prayed for War with the Mystics, and got it for Christmas.

    The funny thing is…I don’t think the Russians would go to war with us until after the elections here. They, along with just about everyone else in the world, don’t want to do anything to help the Republicans create a distraction from our domestic issues.

    We could probably invade Iran right now, and the Iranians would pretend it wasn’t happening. They might even say they invited our troops to come in and look around, just to avoid the impact a new war might have on public opinion here in the US.

    Now that I think of it, this is the perfect time to invade all our enemies. I’m going to start calling my senators and the White House and tell them we need to go into Iran, Cuba, Georgia, and Venezuela right now! Strike while the irons hot and so wonderfully soft!

    Well, Cokie Roberts and Sam Donaldson have passed. How do you feel now?

    Sam Donaldson hasn’t really passed, but it seems like it doesn’t it?
