Kids, not only are the Rethugs trying to distance themselves from Chimpy and Deadeye Dick, but they can’t seem to get far enough away from Captain Underpants either! 😆
From The Independent:
Senior members of the Republican party are in open mutiny against John McCain’s presidential campaign, after a disastrous period which has seen Barack Obama solidify his lead in the opinion polls.
From inside and outside his inner circle, Mr McCain is being told to settle on a coherent economic message and to tone down attacks on his rival which have sometimes whipped up a mob-like atmosphere at Republican rallies.

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 not very good actor from Law & Order or the guy who couldn’t answer questions properly at the debate because his hearing aid wasn’t working and he had to make a poopie? Sounds like a winning Rethuglican ticket to me!

For those who might have missed it the first time around, MSNBC is re-airing the exciting, inspiring, scintillating Republican presidential
snoozefest canonization Ronniepalooza debate tonight, Okay, I admit I didn’t watch the entire thing the other night. I really, really wanted to, but i have developed some kind of weird gag reflex thing. Don’t worry, though. I felt fine when I got up the next day!
The debate was held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Nancy Reagan was sitting in the front row. Reagan’s Air Force One hovered overhead. Reagan’s name was invoked 19 times during the debate (George W. Bush was only mentioned 6 times, and the candidates spit after each time). Does anyone else sense a trend here? Was this debate about the presidency and the things that people are concerned about now or a contest to see who could be the most like Ronald Reagan?
Since I didn’t see the whole debate, I thought i would investigate. I am sure you will be relieved to know that the candidates are their own men. They have no need to be like Ronald Reagan. The library and the widow and the jet and the 19 mentions were merely coincidences. Besides, these guys would not be so stupid as to try to compete to see who is the most like Ronald Reagan! Alberto “I can’t recall” Gonzales already has that won hands down!!
Oops! I promised you a guide to the debate, didn’t I? Here are the 10 candidates. I hope the photos help you to keep track of who is who, as well as proving to you that there was no attempt by the candidates to portray themselves as Reaganesque.
And don’t worry if you can’t keep them all straight (of course they are all straight! They’re Republicans!! You know what I mean!!); the host, Chris Matthews, will be on hand to ask the questions and help you sort it all out, and we know that there is no stardust in his nonpartisan eyes!!
