"It is a very good question," he said, pausing a few seconds, then adding with a chuckle: "I'm being facetious here. Look, of course not."
Eagleburger explained: "I don't think at the moment she is prepared to take over the reins of the presidency. I can name for you any number of other vice presidents who were not particularly up to it either. So the question, I think, is can she learn and would she be tough enough under the circumstances if she were asked to become president, heaven forbid that that ever takes place?
"Give her some time in the office and I think the answer would be, she will be [pause] adequate. I can't say that she would be a genius in the job. But I think she would be enough to get us through a four year... well I hope not... get us through whatever period of time was necessary. And I devoutly hope that it would never be tested."

I think my favorite was the guy who asked if we evolved from monkeys, "how come we can't speak monkey?"

Two days ago, I listened to a 9-6-08 message by Bree Keyton, a young woman evangelist who had just traveled to Kenya and visited Obama's home village and what she found out about his relations with his tribal people was chilling. And his "cousin" Odinga was dreadful. She said the witches, warlocks and those involved in satanism and the occult get up daily at 3 a.m. to release curses against McCain and Palin so B. Hussein Obama is elected.
Bree K. also said when Obama visited his tribe in '06 and as late as Jan. '08 he went to every elder's home which has a "shrine" inside to worship the genie and asked for their blessing. She was told Obama and Odinga were both "destined" before they were born to be president/leader of their nation. They say "he is the chosen one". She said Obama's grandmother sacrificed a black and a white chicken to the "goddess of the river" so both whites and blacks will vote for Obama. All Islam loves and worships ObamaThere is of course nothing the least bit crazy or racist about all of this. We also read: "The occultists are 'weaving lazy 8's around McCain's mind to make him look confused and like an idiot'." I will say that the curse seems to be working.
It seems that Frank Marshall Davis, Obama's friend and mentor as a young boy, wrote a dirty book. Therefore he must have had gay sex with 10-year old Barack Obama. The Enquirer actually doesn't say this but the wingnuts are making the connection. For more wingnuttia, with a lot of links, see Jon Swift's post here.

All computers on the market today -- be they Dell, Toshiba, Sony, Apple or especially IBM -- are assembled with components manufactured inside the PRC. Each component produced by the Chinese, according to a reliable source within the intelligence community, is secretly equipped with a hidden microchip that can be activated any time by China's military intelligence services, the PLA.

Right. Robo-calls linking Obama to terrorists, OK. The "whitey tape", beyond the pale. My guess: Larry was had--possibly by someone on the Clinton campaign trying to raise last-minute doubts about Barack Obama.
'You cannot believe how many people have told me to call them on 20 January [the date of the next president's inauguration],' he says, with relish. '[They say:] "You wanna know about abuses and violations? Call me then." So that is what I'll do, so long as nothing awful happens before the inauguration.'

Meanwhile, since "A Farewell To Justice" was published, I have received confirmations of the CIA connections of Oswald-connected figures like Fred Lee Crisman, the handler of Oswald's acquaintance Thomas Edward Beckham, and Jack Martin, whose name, CIA admits (see the Appendix to "Jim Garrison, His Life and Times") was a "generic." A fragmentary report of Crisman as what is termed an "Internal Security Section" agent emerged from a FOIA inquiry I initiated. The document, dated September 13, 1969, its attachment missing, refers to Crisman as a 4250 agent.
Its author is a CIA agent himself, who takes the risk and exposes Crisman's CIA connection, because Crisman's behavior as what he calls a "disruption agent" appalls him. The author finds people like Crisman "dangerous to the democratic way of life and they should be halted. These men bear no love for the USA," he writes. "They serve the CIA, and, what is more, they serve only a part of the CIA, for they would kill a fellow agent as fast as they would arrange your death…." The author, whose name is redacted, was angry enough to provide information to an outsider.

United States District Judge Mariana R. Pfaelzer imposed the sentence last week on the son-in-law, Robert M. Wurzelbacher Jr., who had pleaded guilty to three counts of misapplying $14 million from Lincoln, an Irvine, Calif., savings association.Robert Wurzelbacher, it appears, is the father of Joseph Wurzelbacker aka "Joe the Plumber." Small world.
Update: But then again not so small as it now appears that Joe the Plumber is not the son of Robert M. Wurzelbacker Hr. See here.
Update 2: There has been speculation that Joe the Plumber may be related to a Doug Wurzelbacher of Wasilla, Alaska. It turns out: maybe, maybe not. I located an email address for Doug and asked him if he was related to Joe. His reply: "considering he is from ohio and my family is from there too then quite possibly yes. But I do not know him and I don't know Palin either."

Update: another angle, taken from here.
I love the way the caption ignores the most obvious thing about this photo. But in case you missed it, here's the closeup.
US Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain (R-AZ) reacts to almost heading the wrong way off the stage after shaking hands with Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) at the conclusion of the final presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, October 15, 2008.
I would fault Senator McCain's debate coaches, as they obviously forgot to tell him not to stick his tongue out or drool.
Update 2: Jesus Christ! Here's another photo from the debateU.S. Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) (2nd R) and Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) (2nd L) stand with their wives Cindy McCain (L) and Michelle Obama (R) after their presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, October 15, 2008.
At least he didn't look at his watch.
McCain mentions JFK assassination during debate
McCain: Well, this has been a tough campaign. It's been a very tough campaign. And I know from my experience in many campaigns that, if Sen. Obama had asked -- responded to my urgent request to sit down, and do town hall meetings, and come before the American people, we could have done at least 10 of them by now.
When Sen. Obama was first asked, he said, "Any place, any time," the way Barry Goldwater and Jack Kennedy agreed to do, before the intervention of the tragedy at Dallas. So I think the tone of this campaign could have been very different.

So, to win McCain needs to campaign heavily in the blue states. Unfortunately for him he is campaigning in the red states.

Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline by Robert H. Bork
"We must, then, take seriously the possibility that perhaps nothing will be done to reverse the direction of our culture, that the degeneracy we see about us will only become worse. The impetus is now with modern liberalism."
Newsweek: Supporters of Hillary Clinton, as many as a fifth of whom had at one point told pollsters they'd support McCain over Obama, now back the Democratic nominee 88 percent to 7 percent
Joseph Cannon has an interesting post on the long-rumored Michelle Obama "whitey" tape. Obviously no such tape exists, at least not a real one, or we would have seen it by now. Mr. Cannon (we used to be on a first-name basis, before he called me a "dumb motherfucker") says that he has a name for at least one of Larry Johnson sources, and probably his first source. But he has not given us the name. Let me remedy that.
Cannon gives the reader a few clues; clues that basically narrow it down to one individual.
The name of the source is one that you would surely recognize, since he commands respect throughout the mainstream media, not just in blog-world. He is a famous investigator. For that reason -- and for another reason which will soon become clear to you -- I will here call him "Sherlock Holmes."Obviously "Sherlock Holmes" is Seymour Hersh. MM is of course Marilyn Monroe.
(Consider that a clue.)
I greatly admire Sherlock's previous work. Most of it, at least. You probably do as well. However, he has been fooled in the past. His most infamous slip-up concerned a story about a person I will here call MM. , Fake documents were involved in that instance.
(Consider that another clue.)

There are thousands of megatonnes of methane stored underground in the Arctic region, trapped there by the permafrost (permanently frozen ground) that covers much of northern Russia, Alaska and Canada and extends far out under the seabed of the Arctic Ocean. If the permafrost melts and methane escapes into the atmosphere on a large scale, it would cause a rapid rise in temperature — which would melt more permafrost, releasing more methane, which would cause more warming, and so on.We're screwed.
Rubina Sheikh, a Muslim woman residing in Sweden, sliced open a mango and noticed black lines in it that formed the Arabic words "Allah" and "Muhammad," which are holy to Muslims, a local newspaper reported.
Behold the holy mango!
Prior to the 1980s, conservatives were fiscally conservative— that is, they were unwilling to spend more than they took in in taxes. But Reaganomics introduced the idea that virtually any tax cut would so stimulate growth that the government would end up taking in more revenue in the end (the so-called Laffer curve). In fact, the traditional view was correct: if you cut taxes without cutting spending, you end up with a damaging deficit.
Inequality in the United States rose throughout the past decade, because the gains from economic growth went disproportionately to wealthier and better-educated Americans, while the incomes of working-class people stagnated.
If anything has been proven by the last few decades, it is that "neoconservative" ideology, in both the domestic economic sphere and in the area of foreign policy, has been disastrous. This is obvious to anyone, except of course for John McCain and most of the Republican party and the "conservative" movement.
