Former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt is providing a peak behind the curtain of the McCain campaign.
They were scared shit that Palin would screw up the debate with Joe Biden and have a major meltdown.
According to CNN “What was most troubling, according to Schmidt, was the fact Palin repeatedly confounded Biden’s name during the preparation process, referring to the then-Delaware senator as Sen. O’Biden. Aides were so worried that such a mishap in the actual debate would prove catastrophic that they advised her to simply refer to her opponent as “Joe.”"
In an interview that will air on 60 Minutes this weekend Schmidt reveals that “Palin’s debate preparations were going so poorly that campaign aides feared the closely-watched debate could prove to be a “debacle of historic and epic proportions.”
This was to be the next VP and she couldn’t even get Biden’s name right.
There is a God out there who made sure ..continue reading

No not that Palin.
Bloomberg reports that 19 year old Bristol Palin has registered to set up a public relations firm, BSMP LLC.
This twit who has been running around the country preaching abstinence after having a baby with then boyfriend Levi Johnston beleives she is qualified to run a PR firm.
Who would hire her? There are probably enough Palin lovers out there to make sure she doesn’t fail.
Only in the USA. I love this country.
The Blackwater saga never ends when it comes to murder.
According to CNN “Two men who worked as security contractors for the company formerly known as Blackwater have been charged with murder in the killings of two Afghan men, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.”
“Christopher Drotleff and Justin Cannon are charged with two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted murder each in connection with the May shootings in Kabul. The 12-count, 19-page indictment returned by a federal grand jury in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia also includes weapons charges against the two men.”
“Drotleff, Cannon and two other contractors, Steven McClain and Armando Hamid, were involved in a shooting in Kabul on May 5, 2009, that left two Afghan civilians dead and another wounded. The men had been hired by Paravant, a subsidiary of Xe, the controversial military contracting firm formerly known as Blackwater, to help the U.S. Army train ..continue reading
Republicans and conservatives always claim that they own the rights to certain words.
In recent years it was security, homeland defense and patriotism. The Republicans wanted Americans to believe that they know more about these, they are the only ones who understand these.
Of course this is pure bull.
Now their latest word game is terrorism, terrorists, war on terror and counterterrorism.
They have been pounding Obama since the attempted airline attack on Christmas Day. Obama can not bring himself to say the word terrorism, does not believe in the war on terror and on and on.
They are using the same tactics they used for months in lying to Americans about health care reform.
Repeat the lies over and over again and more and more people will believe it is true.
Unfortunately this is the truth in this country. Especially for those who depend on Fox news for their information.
The reality is that President Obama has ..continue reading
I know that when I contribute to a political Party or candidate I would like to think that my money is going to serve that Party or candidate.
Contributors to the RNC should keep an eye on the RNC and specifically on Michael Steele.
Nationaljournal.com reports that the RNC transferred $20K to the Northern Mariana Islands in the past 2 months.
Why would they do this? The Northern Mariana Islands have no voting members of Congress and no electoral votes to offer the GOP’s national candidates.
The reason according to some RNC critics is that they helped elect Michael Steele to his position at the RNC.
“Steele won his race to head the national GOP with backing from the committee’s 5 island constituencies”.
“Under RNC rules, each territory has as many voting members on the committee as a state, giving the Northern Mariana Islands as much sway over the committee as, say, TX or CA.”
“Traditionally, the islands vote ..continue reading
