Here are the talking points:

John McCain was and is a Bush enabler. He didn't stand up when the chips were down. He will be an uninspiring leader that will not have the political capital to get things done.

Sara Palin is a George Bush clone. A know nothing governor that will be a mouth piece for the right wing.

The Democratic Party was and is a Bush enabler. They didn't stand up when the chips were down. They will be uninspiring leaders that will not have the political capital to get things done.

Fixed.

Obama was and is a Bush detractor. He stood up when the chips were down. He will be an inspiring leader that will have the political capital to get things done.

Fixed for relevance.

Gimme an F!

Gimme an I!

Gimme an S!

Gimme an A!

Wuzzat spell?

Better than McCain!

Wuzzat spell?!

Better than McCain!!

(or so I'm told)

Wouldn't it be nice if you could just re-write history like that. I believe they did it in Communist Russia and in 1984 but - Majority party in all branches of the government until 2006. The Minority party could've agreed or disagreed - it would not have made a difference. The Republicans need to take the heat, they take the responsibility, they do the right thing and man up. Democrats have their own issues with the members of their party but this does not fall in their lap.

McCain was up there in 2004 when he had enough clout NOT to prop up Bush and there he was hugging away the man who ran a truly hateful campaign against him in 2000 and giving his military credibility to him. McCain either was a wuss or it was a political decision. That's when I lost all respect for "the Maverick." He is partially responsible for Bush getting a second term and he supported him throughout and now he has his payoff - but he is tarnished and only if you were a child at the time should you not be able to remember that fact.

I want whatever drugs the Republicans are taking. It's amazing how they've screwed up this country over the past 8 years - and their platform is one of "we can't believe how fucked up things are. you need us to fix it."

And the moron majority believes it

Yikes.

Cali needs to turn off Rush Limbaugh at least one day a week. Try tuning to the classical station; it will calm you down.

Of course we all know what Rush's problem is: As a child he was molested by a hippie, possibly hippies, and perhaps many, many hippies (some theorize it was a bus of Viet Nam War protesters). As a teenager, because of the trauma, he would work the port-o-potty glory holes at Grateful Dead shows...312 in all. And then he got into radio.

Fruedian Slips are almost always comical.

Also it seems the Republicans are going to their fail safe plan pretty heavily now.

Say anything on TV regardless of truth enough times so that it becomes true. When you get called on it, claim "biased leftist liberal media"

I am remembering Bush's victory in 2004. I remember the shock of it hitting so hard that people were just walking around in a daze for a few days. How was it even possible that so many people could vote for a proven dunderhead and his evil shadowy overlord?

But vote they did. And if the unthinkable happens this December, the shock will be almost intolerable.

McCain deserves respect for his VP pick. And I don't mean to imply that I think he chose her for noble reasons - of course he didn't. But Sarah Palin is a force - one that we will likely be fighting against for decades.

And as such, McCain -whether he did it because he wanted to, or because he was pressured by the religious base - picked someone who actually could put him into the White House over Barack Obama.

If Democrats do not start fighting back - swiftfly and savagely - and instead opt for the usual high-minded mockery and prissy jabs that don't break skin, then they are going to lose.

And with apologies to Norm, I gotta say: "John Bush" - really? At this stage in the game, that's the ammunition we've got? I have seen that clip on no less than 6 blogs - and it is embarrassingly weak.

Democrats have got to lose their nerve about fighting and get in the god damn mud and start flinging it. We've seen what "dignity" and "rising above it all" has gotten us in the past.

Obama was and is a Bush detractor. He stood up when the chips were down. He will be an inspiring leader that will have the political capital to get things done.

Fixed for relevance.
