Funny stuff
Posted by: McQ on Friday, August 29, 2008

I mentioned how irony-impaired the Obama campaign seems to be earlier. Here's official proof:
“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain’s commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush’s failed economic policies — that’s not the change we need, it’s just more of the same,” said Bill Burton, Obama campaign spokesman.
So if the Obama campaign chooses to show disrepect to Gov. Palin, is it fair to call Obama "the former state senator"?

And this caused me to chuckle:
Ms. Palin came as a surprise not only to many Republicans and journalists, but also to the Obama team. The campaign has been busily preparing TV commercials to run against Mitt Romney — with aides gleefully watching hours of footage of Romney-McCain exchanges from the primary — but far little opposition research had been prepared about the Alaska governor. And aides said no commercials were ready to be immediately released, which the McCain campaign did when Mr. Biden was chosen.

The takeoff of the Democratic campaign plane was delayed for about 30 minutes, so aides were busily trying to learn all they could about the Palin pick.
The secrecy surrounding the pick was pretty complete.

By the way, didn't Obama give a speech last night?

How can you tell the Dems are panicked? - Rahm Emanuel's statement tells it all:
“After trying to make experience the issue of this campaign, John McCain celebrated his 72nd birthday by appointing a former small town mayor and brand new Governor as his Vice Presidential nominee. Is this really who the Republican Party wants to be one heartbeat away from the Presidency? Given Sarah Palin’s lack of experience on every front and on nearly every issue, this Vice Presidential pick doesn’t show judgement: it shows political panic.”
Speaking of judgement, Bryan mentioned in a comment earlier:
[A]nd the Democrats stuffed a young heartbeat directly between experience and the presidency.
Funny stuff.

I read on another blog where a pro-Obama ad has already come out, with a voiceover saying, "McCain’s choice for vice-president is pro-big oil. . . ." Oh, horrors! God forbid that anyone not despise the people who produce oil! Obama is pro-big-government, but no problem there, nossirree! Businessmen (other than, you know, State-humpers and coercion-junkies like Soros) you should distrust and contemn, but the State—well, that we should love and trust!

Sometimes it’s like Wesley Mouch from ATLAS SHRUGGED has come to life and writes this stuff for Obama.

Rahm Emanuel’s comments and some of the others I’ve seen today demonstrate one thing: The Dems are punch drunk. They are not seeing straight.

McCain delivered a wallop today.

Her own mother found out from the TV news.

Also, today is Gov. Palin’s wedding anniversary...

I think I’ll start referring to Sen Lightworker as "former community organizer"

So to parse the Dem argument: if McCain wins, there is a chance this young, inexperienced person will become president; if Obama wins, a young, inexperienced person will become president. Heh, not too bright...
