    Where is the outrage when conservatives attack liberals?

    Well, er ... um ... ah ...

    LIBERALS DESERVE TO BE ATTACKED!
    CONSERVATIVES DO NOT!
    WHAT IS IT ABOUT 'RIGHT IS RIGHT' THAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND?

    Not surprised that this poster felt the ad was "hilarious".

    Rush Limbaugh's flopping around on camera making fun of Michael J. Fox's disease is on the all-time hilarious list.

    Ah, Tommie, you just did say that, or did you really think you can say " what if I said. . . " and then pretend you did not say it? Silly Tommie.
    And why do you think people are attacking conservatives because they "don't like them?" Maybe they are "attacking" them because they don't agree with their policies and think they are dangerous to this country. I sure think they are dangerous to this country that I love.
    Besides where is your sense of outrage when conservatives attack liberals?

    Of course this poster would think the McBush ad was hilarious. He's obviously a neocon.

    Neocons think bloated, OxyContin-inspired bigot and conservative guru, Rush Limbaugh flopping around mimicking a man with an incurable disease (Michael J. Fox) is hilarious.

    I thought that the spoof ad that Hilton did was Hilarious! And I don't think Mccain is going to lose any votes, I think he's gonna gain a few!

    To "you can tell them by their form":

    Stop attacking conservatives because you don't like them!

    How about I just start saying Liberals are nasty baby hating pacifists who want to destroy this country, how would you feel about that?

    Keep the conversation clean and polite please.

    With the way Rush O'Hannity attacks the Democrats and the ever-increasing amount of nastiness (ie., The Paris Hilton saga) escalates the closer to November we get, it would not surprise me to see McBush flipping the bird at Obama sometime in the near future.

    Such is the way of our Neocons.
    Red-neck mentality - red-neck form.

    Careful Mark if you want to see something truly pointless but funny ask michaeh to actually tell you about a policy position of McCains that has lead them to support his campaign. Every time I have tried this I either get completely ignored or get a rambling attack about how McCain is not Obama but never anything about policy. I farness though I have not exactly received a real high level of intelligent responses from Obama supporters on these forums either. As our illustrious leader GW once said its Hardeee!

    McCain who has contended that Barack Obama is willing to lose in Iraq to win the election, today said his rival would forfeit the war as part of an agenda that also promotes big government and high taxes.

    I am afraid McBush underestimates the intelligence and political savvy of the American people.

    Who does not know that prior to the Cheney/Bush debacle, this country had a surplus and under this administration the ranks of federal employees has ballooned and we now have a deficit that we may never be able to overcome?

    Once again someone thinks they can play us for chumps.

    Nice jumble of right wing talking points, michaelh.
    Talk about no substance. Strong work.

  • an idea for an campaign ad
    Aug. 7, 2008 11:03 a.m.

    Why don't the good neocons in the reddest state of Utah put together and nice McCain ad showing how McCain dumped his modest first wife for a blonde bombshell who owns a huge beer distrubuting company?

    Why not?

    The ad could be called McCain and Family Values.

    Is the author insinuating that Obama is "stealing" the shallow vote...from John McCain?

    As for the McCain commercial, it was not spot on. It was itself shallow and only appeals to those voters who think Obama is too smart, skinny, or Muslim to be elected.

    The fact remains that Obama is the great nothing. Hope and change will happen regardless of who is elected, he cannot lower the level of the oceans or cause a sudden all consuming good will towards all men to erupt, and his policies are empty and meaningless. He speaks in mindless platitudes and eschews specificity. When he does get specific it is a rerun of the disastrous Carter administration. He uses rock groups to attract large crowds before he delivers his speeches which sound like Seinfeld and with all the swooning and fainting of his fans. This is not American Idol; this is the President of the United States. The commercial was spot on. If there is a backfire it is that fact that Paris Hilton parroted Obama in her commercial. Art imitates life.
