Big Girls Don’t Cry

Is it okay for anybody to use the N-word? Probably not, but I am more concerned about why Elizabeth Hasselbeck gets soooo emotional about it.

RNC vs CafePress

“If you want to say ‘GOP’ and design an elephant that’s similar, want to design an elephant that’s not precisely the same as ours, that’s fine. Our elephant is specific. It’s stylized, it’s blue and red, it has three stars across its back that are tilted. They’re using that precise elephant.” RNC chief counsel Sean Cairncross told Politico.

I’m not sure what to make of this. It seems a little petty to me, but then again, if someone were using my copyrighted material to work against me I may be a little bit mad too…Check out the whole story here.

Pot Meet Kettle…

First we heard Hillary Clinton make a big deal about Barack Obama not using his chairman position on a subcommittee to do more about the situation in Afghanistan. Like many of Hillary Clinton’s attacks on Obama, this one has been recycled and tested out by John McCain.

Joe Biden, who is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee had a plausible response, which was that he likes to hold hearings at the full committee level.

On the other hand, I wonder what plausible response John McCain will have for attending ZERO hearings on Afghanistan in the last two years…

Somebody Needed to Say It!

“You know, God bless him, bless his heart, president of the United States, a total failure, losing all credibility with the American people on the economy, on the war, on energy, you name the subject,” Pelosi replied. She then tsk-tsked Bush for “challenging Congress when we are trying to sweep up after his mess over and over and over again.”

Somebody doesn’t sound to happy with our nation and its leadership! How can the president defend himself from such truths? Find out here.

Obama/Clinton

The other Clinton answered a few questions today.

Q: When will you campaign with Obama?

A:”Whenever he asks… We had a good talk… He’s busier than I am on politics anyway.”

I guess that means all the talk of Bill Clinton being mad at Obama or not liking Obama was just that-talk?

We’ll see, but I think that for Bill Clinton’s legacy, and Hillary’s too, he’ll do the right thing.

Not so funny…

 

In order for people to laugh at a joke it has to be funny. I think that’s rule number one for joke telling, but I’m no comedienne. I have heard of some of John McCain’s jokes, and rather than make me laugh they make me angry. For instance, how can someone really joke about Chelsea Clinton being ugly? Whether you support Hillary Clinton or not, I think we can all agree that politicians’ kids should be off limits. In addition to that, how can your sick sense of humor allow you to joke about killing innocent Iranians with cigarettes? That’s just not funny! We may all tell off color jokes to our families and close friends, but we know for the most part how they will react. John McCain, a presidential candidate, needs to watch his humor, as it could eventually turn people completely off to him…

Ben Smith @ Politco has an interesting take here.
