Gilligan’s Island–Ready for Offshore Drilling?

To the tune of the theme from Gilligan’s Island:

Just sit right back, and you’ll hear a tale,
Worse than a bad acid trip!
That started with an asshole,
And a guy with a crooked lip.

The mate was a stupid, drooling man,
As dumb as a hockey puck,
The citizens were not prepared,
For an 8-year clusterfu¢k.

An 8-year clusterfu¢k. [sound of thunder: crack!]

Let Them Eat Cake (and don’t let them get crumbs on this $3860 dress!)

From National Nine News:

First it was the number of houses US presidential candidates owned that measured their ability to connect with the battlers of America, now it’s the value of the frocks their wives are wearing.

Republican nominee John McCain’s wife Cindy has set tongues wagging by turning up to the party’s national convention wearing an outfit estimated to be worth more than $360,000.

Can You Hear Me Now?

From The Washington Post:

Prominent conservative columnist Peggy Noonan and former John McCain campaign manager Michael Murphy made disparaging comments Wednesday about the Republican’s choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate, after a segment that aired on NBC with Chuck Todd. Thinking that the microphone had been turned off — or, perhaps, that the video signal had stopped transmitting — Noonan and Murphy ripped into Palin as someone who would weigh down the GOP ticket.

“It’s over,” said Noonan.

A Connecticut Flunky in John McCain’s Shorts

(CNN) — Democrats accused fellow lawmaker Sen. Joe Lieberman of misleading the Republican National Convention when he addressed them in a speech Tuesday night.

A senior Barack Obama campaign adviser said Lieberman flat-out lied when he told delegates that Obama never successfully reached across party lines.

“Joe Lieberman ought to be ashamed of himself for some of the things he said tonight, not as a Democrat but as an American,” adviser Robert Gibbs said on “Larry King Live.”

Perfect Harm-ony

From Blue Hampshire:

“It is so encouraging to hear again that Senator Stevens and I are singing from the same sheet of music,” said Governor Palin. “In his address, he pushed for action this year on a natural gas pipeline. I also have the Senator’s assurance that once the state has acted on the AGIA [Alaska Gasline Inducement Act], our Congressional Delegation will do everything it can do to expedite the federal review of the natural gas pipeline project.”

Palin-drone

Aug. 31 (Bloomberg) — Senator John McCain defended Sarah Palin, his vice presidential choice, as a “soul mate” who will take on corruption in Washington, even as a growing chorus in the Alaska governor’s home state questioned her credentials.

“She’s a reformer,” McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said today on Fox News Sunday. “I have watched her for many years; I’ve seen her take on her own party.” Asked whether Palin is the best person for the job, he said, “Oh yeah.”

He’s watched her for many years? She’s only been governor for a year and a half. Does he make it a habit of watching mayors of cities with populations less than 9,000, or is he just confused and is thinking of reruns of Northern Exposure he caught on Nick at Nite?
