Just another rainy Thursday

Well it's Thursday so I have a post up at Art Of The Possible. It's such a bleak post, no one even wants to comment on it, but it fit my mood on this cold and gloomy day here in the south. I've been posting away at Detroit News (link below) on the bailout and I don't have much to add to it here. It's clear that nobody knows WTF is going on or what this bill will actually do, but by golly, the idiot Democrats are going to pass some piece of corporate ass kissing garbage that will piss everyone off except the lobbyists on K Street and somehow allow the Republicans to come out of this looking like they were the ones fighting against the corporate giveaways.

Palin's second interview with Katie Couric is circulating. Her take on Russia is especially enlightening.


Watch CBS Videos Online

I'll cede the snark to Steve Benen since I already posted on this at DetNews. And you may as well see Steve for the demonstration of her 'vast' knowledge on the bailout. Jeez, you need a translation guide for her remarks. She doesn't even speak in complete sentences.

This isn't even close to partly skilled double talk, it's just plain dumb as a brick blathering. The only real question left is why in the hell is anyone with two brain cells to rub together supporting this ticket? Or alternately, who are these people who the pollsters claim are going to vote for Clueless McCain and his ventriloquist dummy VP? Are there really that many suicidal Americans?

But to prove how ready Ms. Palin is to meet the press, I understand she took four questions today. She managed to answer two of them without tripping over her lipstick. I pretty sure they wrote the first answer for her and made her practice it before they her out alone in public.

Meanwhile, this is worth a read. I blogged it at DetNews too, but it's noteworthy that The Hill commited an act of actual journalism today and posted on the candidates record in the last incarnation of Congress. The score Obama 5 - McCain 0.

And finally, McChicken is still using his fly-in photo-op as an excuse to avoid having to debate Obama and of course the larger goal of that flim-flam is to get Palin's debate cancelled altogether in order to avoid having the public at large hear her speak on the issues for a whole hour. That would kill the campaign for sure. If they pull it off, they can still probably hold the deluded demo that apparently believe a presidential race is just like American Idol through November. I can't decide whether that scares me or depresses me more.

I agree with the "too dismal to want to comment on" comment. Going on eight years of the bush/CHENY dominion leaves a body feeling a bit peaked at times. The fates must have been having a riot of a good time when they wove our live's timelines this election season. It has been said many times before but the McCain/Palin ticket has actually set out to prove that old chestnut "politicians have no shame"! Admittedly they targetted some low-hanging fruit there but they are personally proving that old saw, daily.

I was having a very bad day yesterday Pat. It's hard to be optimistic while you're watching these cretins run our country into the ground.
