I think McCain will chicken out on talking about Ayers during the debate tomorrow night.

Obama needs to kick McCain’s ass. Here comes the escalation:

BREAKING: Incident at Philadelphia Obama Office
by Stwriley
Tue Oct 14, 2008 at 07:44:04 PM PDT
And so the threats begin to go beyond nasty rhetoric and shouted obscenities.

Today, the Obama campaign office in South Philadelphia was the target of a mailed threat that also contained a white powder. It was found by a volunteer opening the mail and resulted in a full scale hazmat and police response. The office was evacuated and containment and testing instituted to find out what the substance was.

Fortunately, the powder turned out to be sugar and all staff and volunteers are fine. Since the letter was actually sent through the mail, the matter is now a federal investigation, as it rightly should be.

As the author goes on to say, sure this time it’s harmless white powder, but what next? As of yet, what the written threat was, I haven’t heard.

I totally blame McCain and Palin for whipping the crazies into a frenzy. They are losing the election and their supporters are losing their minds.

If you’re going to join us for the debate chat tomorrow, you probably want to drop into the live chat and just make sure it works for you. If it doesn’t, please let us know in this thread –

Is there any truth to the rumor that Palin’s house was built by the contractors who built the sports arena in Wasilla, Alaska

Just finished watching Keith and Rachel online. It’s so gratifying to watch Keith ream anybody a new one, but it was particularly great to see him call McCain out. Not to mention that little Mr. D*ckwad Frum got an honorable mention in Worst Person in the World.

ds55? angryxer? you still around?

suppose I should go over to the forum…

14 10 2008

I’m here, flipping back & forth from here to the live chat.

hey wired… i’m around. flipping btw here & other sites, as i’m behind on the news today. i’m going to be elsewheres tomorrow night for the debate (it’s a great venue, but i’m sorry to miss the mudflatter commentary in real time), so not trying out the chat at the moment

Snoskred — I can’t leave you a note at the thread you mention, because I can’t reach the “themudflats.com” site. Since all my other web connections are okay, I assume it’s just at capacity. Just FYI.

Cheers

I’m too tired to chat tonight. Will save it for tomorrow during the debate. Just reading the other sites I like before heading to bed. This article and list on Daily Kos says it all! What a collection of Republican turncoats. Loving it!

I keep getting “server timed out” at the forum??? I’m using firefox, idea’s?

Apparently a new version of World Of Warcraft has been released today which is playing havoc with servers across the interwebs. It isn’t just the forum having problems – the googles and tubes are struggling to cope.

Yep, another reason to dislike WOW, as if I needed one.😉 Sorry guys, fingers crossed it’ll be fixed by tomorrow.

There’s hundreds of people working behind the scenes to fix stuff like this when it happens.. guess they won’t be getting a lot of sleep tonight.

That explains it… Let’s hope this doesn’t require $700 billion to be pumped into the … um… websites of the big banks!

Oh sure, that’s why it’s so quiet here…. the Mudflatters aren’t in the chatroom, they’ve all snuck off to play World of Warcraft! Come on, people, fess up!

There’s going to be internet issues for the next 24 hours or so, most likely.

I’m very interested in Todd Palin’s odd role in this campaign–and in his wife’s administration in Alaska. …
—————————–

I’m very interested in his position and relevance to his wife’s vp campaign. it LOOKS like they separate them from time to time, sending him off. I’m wondering if he sits in on important meetings that she must attend. My guess is that this campaign will take its toll on Todd. Really a fish out of water in this (hopefully) temporary world. We can watch for the stresses to begin to show. Sarah was a tv a minute ago schlepping that baby thru a grocery check-out line. The truth is that her *special baby* is well-suited (with the placid nature) to being a prop for her. Shame on Sarah; I would like to hear some child advocates address her *mothering* thru this, particularly in contrast to every single other candidate seeming to watch out for the well-being of the children, even grown children She’s really somethun!

The Warcraft download is 1.2 GB. I may leave my PC on overnight to grab it.

14 10 2008

LaNon,

Actually, from what I’ve read, Todd has been very used to partaking (if not directing) the state’s business in Alaska behind the scenes, so he might be very much at home with the politicking…. although his secessionist self may be chafing at overmuch exposure to the “outside.”

Agreed with you about the kids– I worry that they’re getting dragged along the campaign trail (or off god knows where) without much concern for their wellbeing. As I ranted on my blog the other day, I was particularly disgusted to see two of Palin’s daughters in the background during one of her speeches, as she said the most repugnant things about Obama. What on earth kind of example is that to set for them? Hey kids, when you grow up, you can incite mobs just like me! Ugh.

14 10 2008

Alrighty then, ds55, so we shouldn’t expect to see you around here for another week or so once the download’s complete?😉

I’ll be around for the debate tomorrow. 🙂

Enjoy! I’ll have to catch up on the Mudflatters commentary after the fact. I get to go to our local second-run theater, get dibs on my favourite couch, and order up some beer. Most cathartic to be able to yell at McCain with a room full of Democrats, as long as I have to endure him for 90 mins.

Maine is targeted……Only 4 electoral votes but if the 2nd district falls to m/p by 1 vote the state will give 2 votes to m/p & 2 to O/B! ( district 1 shoo-in for O/B)
There are way too many local ( Wasilla Types) fooled by palin………….I am busy writing letters to the local paper, to blog! Also fielding polling calls from the Repig campaign. They get a Raging Granny style, Shock & Awe rant along with my promise to vote straight Dem ticket.

Todd has been sent off to random states to celebrate ‘guy’ stuff with ‘guys’. The Republicans are organising ‘guy’ events for him – involving machines of various types.

They don’t want him talking – just riding stuff. And talking about riding stuff.

Once you put your email address out there, you receive tons of messages. I suggest you get a yahoo address for whenever you have to provide an address and you’re not positive how it will be used.

There’s a spot on my way home where there are lots of political signs including McCain/Palin. I volunteered at Obama headquarters last night and asked for a sign to put there as well. I was pleased to see on my way home that there already was a sign. However, this morning it’s gone!

Now as much as I’ve wanted to rip down the McCain sign I didn’t. I think it’s interesting that Obama’s sign was taken down immediately. The Republicans shout about how much they are Christians, but yet they do that. They shout “kill him” at Palin rallies. I guess it’s a sign of how they feel about rights and freedoms. You have rights and freedoms as long as you agree with them.

I saw a nun in Rome who is 106 and is voting for Obama! She hasn’t voted since 1952 when she voted for Eisenhower.

It’s just trashy and childish to steal signs, at least when they’re posted on private property (as they are supposed to be.) I picked up an Obama sign on Monday and one of the things they told me was to put it closer to the house than to the road, because people drive around and grab them.
But I want it to be seen! It’s been OK in the yard, so far. Later, I may post it on the front door instead.
Of course, it shouldn’t surprise anybody that the same people who believe outright LIES and attempt to suppress the truth and any form of openness are stealing signs–the very existence and presence of those signs screams that there are actually OTHER OPINIONS out there! So, it’s really kind of logical for them to steal them.
In a rather warped and depraved way, I mean!

More than just stealing signs…the GOP is trying to steal yet another election, so we cannot be lulled into a false sense of victory here folks. Let’s work as if we were 14 pts. down in the polls!

I heard a blurb on CNN this morning that some “unknown” organization has been inserting dvd’s into newspapers around the country which contains “terrorist propaganda.” I suppose since they could not “manufacture” another war on such short notice…they will result in the “domestic terrorism” of fear and hatred. And I would not be at all surprised if Cindy herself bankrolled the project!

Be ever-vigilant ~for this race is not yet won…and the stakes could not be higher!

BUT NOT THIS TIME!
