Il brutto, il cattivo

Phil "nation of whiners" Gramm and John "small business" McCain. Check out The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999, repealing FDR era banking safeguards. Wendy Lee Gramm, married to Phil, headed the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (in the years 1988-1993, another meltdown period) and "served" as a member of the Enron Corporation Board of Directors. Absolute "deregulation" Pied Pipers, all. Right into the river deep, magic mountain dark.

McCain with Joe Lieberman, former Democratic VP candidate running with Al Gore in 2000. Hard to believe he once debated Dick Cheney. McCain's signage claims "Country First." Lieberman's biggest problem is that he's a United States Senator and "Independent" who supports country first, but only if that country is Israel. A loathsome turncoat.

"I am not scared of al Qaeda, I am scared of . . . al Cracker." -- Chris Rock.

Here they are, then: Conservative Southern Baptist Senator Lindsey Graham, who some wags in South Carolina claim is gay just as they claimed that his predecessor, Strom Thurmond, had a child with a black woman (which turned out to be true -- the daughter's name is Essie Mae Washington-Williams). Conservative hypocrisy would be the watchword a la the homophobic (yet engaging in homosexual "activities") Pastor Ted Haggard. Oh yeah, and G.W. Bush, who like McCain was a piss poor student and roustabout who likes to "talk out of his ass." Maybe they should all read William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch. I'd like to hear Sarah Palin's audio edition!

Obama won tonight's debate handily. McCain was foolish to mention Herbert Hoover in any context, certainly. At ths point, John McCain should fly back to Panama where he was born and retire. Palin should go somewhere far away, perhaps to a small uninhabited island from which she can "see Russia."

Today's Rune: Partnership.

O What a wicked web we weave...the passing of the GLBact certainly did not take into account the waves of greed that we bred into our children. The removing of the separations between the investment banks and the savings banks certainly did open the doors for abuse. If them that manipulated the lack of oversight had been able to see into the future I would be willing to bet that they would have stayed the course. They would have seen their multi-million dollar pay and said it is good.

I wonder what it's like to have Lieberman in bed? It is obvious that he sells himself, not for an ideal but rather for his own aggrandizement. Personally I think chaney and he should go hunting, it would be a win win no matter which trigger got pulled first.

Palin governing an island...I don't think she'd be able to match the rhetoric of her administration with her actions, even if she were her only constituent.

It looks like McCain & Lieberman are about to kiss in that photo. *L* As for supporting Isreal, what do you expect from a Jew? I was raised that way & Zionism usually seemed of higher import than adherence to religious beliefs.

Not that that's RIGHT, btw. That's just the way it is, unfortunately.

An friend of mine had a "dramatic reading" of part of Naked Lunch during a campaign event when he was running for student body president at my college. Much to our surprise, he won. It's a post I'm working on.

McCain was astoundingly bad in the debate. Even his behavior when Obama was speaking; when McCain spoke, Obama looked and listened. McCain wandered around the stage and never looked at Obama.
