Two weeks after he said that Spain was in Latin America, McSenile comes off sounding like he's saying Venezuela is in the Middle East.
Sure, it could be considered a "meh," but imagine the reaction from the rightwing blogodrome if it had been Sen. Obama that had said that.

In what isn't a SNL sketch, Sarah Failin calls out Joe Biden for being old /in the Senate too long:
"And I do look forward to Thursday night and debating Sen. Joe Biden. We’re gonna talk about those new ideas, new energy for America. I’m looking forward to meeting him too. I’ve never met him before, but I’ve been hearing about his Senate speeches since I was in like second grade.""He's like, old enuff to be my grampa!"
Thinking people everywhere burst into flames.

Yeah.... that's the ticket. Satan's porcine handmaiden -- who still isn't in prison -- rose up to chat with minion and protege' Sean insHannity about the upcoming vice presidential debate. From Newshounds:

Call a WAAAAAAHHHHHHMBULANCE.
Republicans said Pelosi may have lost votes with a floor speech they considered too partisan. "We could have gotten it if it were not for this partisan speech that Speaker Pelosi gave,” Boehner said. Added Rep. Chris Shays, a Connecticut Republican who also voted for the bill: “Nancy blew it.” "That is an absurd accusation at a time when our country is in deep economic distress," a Pelosi spokesman fired back.Aaaafuckingmazing. The tough guy bad-assed mofo daddy figures who always promise that they, and only they, can protect us from all the scary things hiding under our beds actually changed their votes because a mean ole bitch who doesn't know her place said really mean things about them?
"You don't vote on a speech, you vote on a bill."
A pure definition of WATB if there ever was one.

The crux of the biscuit is The Christastrophe:
Frankly, I don't understand a word of it. I can't even balance my damned checking account because of too many impulse buys of Chocolate Funyons or whatever completely useless thing it is I'm wasting my money on. But this I understand. It's a simple enough idea: just tell us how the money is going to be spent. Open government. Accountability. Oversight. And they're refusing. One last goddamned time, they're refusing.I read somewhere that, in the end, 700 billion clams works out to about $2300 for each of us, man woman and child. I don't know about you, but I haven't bought a new pair of jeans in about a year and a half. I'm wearing the same sample contact lenses I got at Lens Crafters because I can't afford to order a box just yet, because I'm still paying off other assorted bills and things. The bottom line: MY COOKIE JAR IS MOTHERFUCKING EMPTY, WALL STREET.Well said, brother.
Anyway, and it's been said a jillion times already but I like joining the chorus: isn't it completely hysterical to see so many conservatives having honest debates about exactly how much of this billion dollar bailout is acceptable, when a national health care plan that costs a fraction of the bailout is MARX-FASCI-COMMU-CHE-STALIN-STREISAND horrible? Like, we can't spare a penny so your kids can go to the doctor but, OH God you libtards don't understand that the CEO of Goldman Sachs has a standard of living to which he's grown accustomed and if he doesn't have gold flakes in his eggs in the morning he'll have a heart attack and die and you people will be THE MURDERERS AND WE WILL HUNT YOU and you will blame the one armed man and when the train derails you will run run run through the woods but Tommmy Lee Jones is on to you and "I didn't do it!" "I don't care" and then Batman Forever is fucking UNWATCHABLE.

McCain blames Obama for republicans voting against bailout: fark.com
Obama using a teleprompter: instapundit.cumstain
Can he look like a bigger bonehead? Well, yes. Politico (paraphrasing):
John McCain, bragging about his involvement and mocking Sen. Barack Obama, took credit for building a winning coalition – then the vote failed and stocks tanked.Thanks mainly to McInsane's own rethuglican party, who had a major hissyfit after that mean Nancy Pelosi said howwible things about them.
Initially, McCain went silent, manfully choosing instead to send one of his douchebag advisers out with a helpful statement that blamed Obama:"This bill failed because Barack Obama and the Democrats put politics ahead of country," McCain adviser Doug Holtz-Eakin said, if by "Barack Obama" you mean John Boehner and by "Democrats" you mean republicans.
After days spent bashing the Illinois Senator, McInsane then had the huevos to say "Senator Obama and his allies in Congress infused unnecessary partisanship into the process."
I'm sorry, what???? But with the insta-polls coming in all over cable news showing it was the rethugs the America-hating public were blaming, it wasn't long before McCain told reporters in Iowa "Now is not the time to fix the blame. It's time to fix the problem." He then went on to
-- via N. S. Sherlock at Duh! News. I notice that, though McNutjob started out taking credit, he's certainly not taking any of the blame now that its failed.
Oh, the heinous remarks by Ms Pelosi are here. You tell me what was so bad that the WATB rethugs had to bail and fuck everything over.
Update: Politico is reporting that the rethugs planned on killing the bailout bill even before Ms Pelosi spoke.

In what can surely be described as a confidence inspiring endorsement, Reich-wing man chowder guzzling columnist David BoBo Brooks says Sarahcuda Von Mooselini, aka Juneau Cleaver could "rise to the level of mediocrity" in the upcoming VP debate.

"President Bush met with John McCain and Barack Obama. John McCain showed up without running mate Sarah Palin, which is a shame because she actually has a lot of experience with financial matters. You know, she lives right next to a bank." -- Jimmy Kimmel
Meanwhile, Bible Spice is at "debate camp" -- with what seems to be her entire family -- at one of the McElitist mansions in Arizona.
Bonus McInsane suck-up watch: reminiscent of the media trying to pass Preznit Privelege off as a cowboy, the article refers to the McMoneybags place as "rustic creek-side home." Right.

Tiny American flags for everyone! On Sunday, George Stephanopoulis sat down with John McThuselah and talked about the candidate's health care plan:
STEPHANOPOULOS: One of the other points Senator Obama made in the debate that you weren’t able to respond to, he said that, for the first time ever, you would tax health benefits by taking away the deduction that employers now get to provide health benefits.Then he gets even more out-of-touch.
MCCAIN: Right -- this all began during World War II with price and wage controls. Those damn Prussians... if it weren't for them, we'd all be able to get by now wearing onions on our belts! When I was a lad, before getting captured by the Cong, I'd have to walk twenty miles to buy onions for the family. The good ones, not those fruity little green jobs you liberal commie hippies put on arugula. I don't think you understand, Jim...
MCCAIN: My name is John, you fucking whippersnapper.
STEPHANOPOULOS: No, my name is 'George.'
MCCAIN: That's what I said. I don't think you understand, Joe, that for five and a half years as a prisoner of war, I didn't have health insurance. So these cunts today, they should just quit their damn whining and suck it up.

In his latest column in the horribly-biased NY Times, he chides those who said McNuts was wrong to parachute into DC last week, saying he should continue to talk about his efforts to deal with the economic crisis even though a) he seems to be either obstructing any effort to resolve it, and b) his advisers were/are actively involved in perpetuating it...
... that he should free Caribou Barbie to meet with the media, since she’s a "talented communicator" ...
... and that Obama has "radical associates in his past," specifically Rev. Wright -- even as the stories of Bible Spice's Jew-hating, witchcraft-obsessed pastor are coming out in the blogosphere and youTube.
In a epic duh, he closes with a bizarre non-sequitor involving Joe Biden. Is this guy demented? What a fucking goofball.
Above: so very, very wrong.

Elitist McCrabbypants doesn't care about you and me.
On Saturday, after declaring he’d return to Washington to help with the bailout negotiations immediately after [Friday's] debate, John McCain never went to Capitol Hill. In fact, McCain stayed largely holed up in his Arlington apartment, leaving only to go to his campaign headquarters just around the block, the New York Times reports.Yep, one of the most important decisions to be made in our time, and Grampy McFusepants decides to just phone it in.
Asked why Mr. McCain did not go to Capitol Hill after coming back to Washington to help with negotiations, [McCain adviser] Salter replied that “he can effectively do what he needs to do by phone."
It gets better:
As his colleagues worked on the deal at the Capitol Saturday night, McCain and his wife, Cindy, dined with smug asswipe Joe Lieberman and his wife, at Cafe Mozu inside Washington’s swanky Mandarin Oriental Hotel.Well, at least he wasn't out gambling.
"What sort of half-assed roll was that, you cunts!"

McInsane reams both his VP pick and the media after Bible Spice had the nerve to discuss issues this weekend.
In other words, don't listen to her, she has no idea what she's talking about. But if something like this happens to Obama or Biden it'll be fair game and on-the-record.

McInsane now says he won't be going back to the Hill -- instead he'll negotiate the supposedly all-important bailout crisis (that he had to drop everything for just the other day!) via telephone from his condominium in Arlington, Va. Via fark.com:
Ya know, this plus what we've been seeing the last few days of McCain's face melting, I wonder if he's trying to stay in hiding due to a medical issue.

"Weak, indecisive, blatantly political" -- After reversing on the debate, John McCain looks like John McCan't
The collapse of McCain's Hail Mary intervention capped a tumultuous week which saw the Arizona Democrat's [sic -moron!] lead over Obama evaporate and his running mate deliver a ragged and at times impenetrable TV interview. With economic jitters playing to traditional Democratic dogma, McCain's Big Mo suddenly reverted to his challenger.Bonus: article compares McInsane to Jimmy Carter and his boneheaded move during the Iranian hostage crisis.
In the process, McCain invited questions about his judgment and ability to work his will in Washington if elected.
"This raises the fundamental issue of how a guy who is hated by his own party can govern," fretted a GOP mandarin who worked for several Presidents. "If he can't control the Republicans, how can he run a country?"

No, that's just the first one. Then it gets even better.

Results from the CNN poll show that Senator Obama won everything but the 'nasty fucktard' category:
OK, one of those was me. Found this comment over at the Daily Dish, from someone who had been live-blogging the debate:
"My friends, as a POW I had to walk uphill in the snow both ways for five and a half years. Senator Obama just doesn't understand that."
Posted by maru at 9/27/2008 09:05:00 AM
I'm trying to put together some kind of consensus on the debate, so this may be a work in progress. Senator Obama did great against the more "experienced debater" McInsane, getting off some good ones -- the 'bomb bomb Iran' thing was a hoot! -- but the old coot was not as strong as I thought he would be. He started off looking tired, later his voice shook, and he came across as a whole to be all sneer, eye twitch, sneer, sneer, smirk. Very rude.
I was over at C 'n' L posting in the live debate thread and a lot of us were saying the same thing. And everytime McInsane got contemptuous, the audience reaction lines at CNN took a dive.

When radio guy Mike Papantonio tried to remind viewers about McCain's involvement on behalf of Charles Keating, Faux Nooze's pimply weasel Steve Doocy told Papantonio to "put a cork in it" and "pipe down," called him "rude" and demanded he "cut it out." A show producer could be overheard saying "cut his mike."
As Papantonio tries one last time to explain the details of the Keating Five scandal, Doocy again cuts him off.Raw Story has the vomit-inducing video.
"This is not the History Channel," he says.
"It has everything to do with what's happening today," Papantonio said before being told to pipe down.
