Just Like Dr. Pepper, So Misunderstood!

From Politico:

After enduring three days of brutal postmortem attacks, Sarah Palin and a group of Republicans who worked with her during the presidential race are pushing back hard against claims that she was a “diva” who helped tank John McCain’s campaign.

“I never asked for anything more than a Diet Dr Pepper once in a while,” Palin told reporters as she returned to the governor’s office Friday.

It’s true! Princess Sarah is still the same sweet undemanding girl she always was, as Miss Wasilla….

I always thought they were seedy!

From the International Herald-Tribune:

Democrats scored some convincing victories in both houses of the U.S. Congress, picking up at least five Senate seats, ousting Republican incumbents in New Hampshire and North Carolina and capturing seats in Virginia, Colorado and New Mexico left vacant by Republican retirements.

…snip…

In North Carolina, the senatorial career of Elizabeth Dole, one of the most famous names in Republican politics, came to an end at the hands of Kay Hagan, a state lawmaker whose portrayal of Dole as a Washington insider suggested that she was out of touch with the people of her state.

John Sununu, a first-term Republican from New Hampshire, lost his Senate seat in a rematch with former Governor Jeanne Shaheen, who had relentlessly tied him to President George W. Bush.

Y’all don’t come back now, y’hear?

From Newsweek:

Newsweek has […] learned that [Sarah] Palin’s shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. While publicly supporting Palin, McCain’s top advisers privately fumed at what they regarded as her outrageous profligacy. One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family—clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent “tens of thousands” more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast,” and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

The Votes Have Been Counted!

From the New York Daily News:

Who needs pollsters when you’ve got St. Fidelis School?

Since the College Point elementary school students began holding mock elections in 1992, they have correctly predicted the winners of the last four presidential elections.

And this time, the kids have cast their ballots for Democratic Sen. Barack Obama.

The Captain Underpants Campaign Gets Dicked

From The Guardian:

Barack Obama’s team moved quickly to exploit what it viewed as a late and unexpected campaign gift – the endorsement of John McCain in a rare public appearance by the vice-president, Dick Cheney.

In contrast with President George Bush’s absence from the campaign trail at the weekend, Cheney flew to his home state, Wyoming, to speak at a rally in support of the Republican ticket.

“John is a man who understands the danger facing America,” Cheney told a rally in Laramie on Saturday. “He’s a man who has looked into the face of evil and not flinched, he’s a man who is comfortable with responsibility, and has been since he joined the armed forces at the age of 17. He has earned our support and confidence, and the time is now to make him commander in chief.”

Dan and Ted’s Excellent Delusion

From Politico:

ANCHORAGE—In an unusual move, one of the Senate’s most senior Democrats is lending his name to the embattled reelection bid of its longest-serving Republican.

Hawaii’s Daniel K. Inouye, a Democrat, in a statement issued by the campaign of Alaska’s Ted Stevens, a Republican and longtime friend, answers criticism from Stevens’ Democratic opponent and predicts Stevens will win reelection Tuesday and later be exonerated on an appeal of last week’s verdict finding him guilty of hiding gifts.
