Intriguing Endorsements

Hats off to former Secretary of State Colin Powell for having the courage of conviction to slap the hate infested GOP and its inflame the idiots political antics. For reasons we may never truly know, Powell impaled his career by agreeing to perpetrate the unconscionable lies of war criminals Cheney and Eggplant and their blood and dollar lust to turn Iraq into a war profiteer's paradise. Powell gave Cheney's pals the trillion dollar "Ka-Ching!" and saw his reputation evaporate.

Cheney doesn't care about matters like reputation, karma, or history.

Powell does, and his Sunday endorsement of Barack Obama, but far more significant, his repudiation of the Republican hate fest and the catastrophic course it seeks for the nation, represents an opportunity for what redemption remains possible after dancing with Satan incarnate. I was delighted to learn of Obama's interest in having Colin Powell play a role in his administration. I would love to see this happen. While one cannot fully release Colin Powell, a man of the stature he commands, of the responsibility for his role in opening the bloodgates of the Iraq atrocity, one can recognize that under different circumstances, like a president with a brain or a vice-president with a soul, Colin Powell may have obtained and retained a reputation for real greatness and profound contribution to the betterment of society.

Most unfortunately, that didn't happen, and he dropped the toxic turd telling us ditches and water tanks were weapons of mass destruction. Partially to atone for this sin, I imagine, Powell now warns us the GOP has become a weapon of mass deception. His speaking on "Meet the Press" was eloquent, clear, intelligent, and true. He offered some of the best speaking on the presidential election we have heard.

Shifting to endorsements of a completely different nature, we have the Wall Street Journal alleging that Fed Chairman Bernanke has endorsed Barack Obama. However, we really know the election is over when the 2008 World Series Champions come out for Obama.

Very well said. You're a poet.

Well over a hundred newspapers have now endorsed Obama, including the Chicago Tribune, which has NEVER endorsed a Democratic candidate for president.

So you're confident TB will beat Philly? Hmmm.

Did you see the Rush Limbaugh response? How about that bimbo moron from Minnesota playing up "good America" and "bad"?

I am sick to death of the judgmental Republicans.
I am a Christian, but I don't wear a cross around my neck.
I am a patriotic American, but I don't wear a flag pin.
Yeah, I'm from a small town -- much smaller than Wasilla, Alaska. Full of flag-waving, American Legion members. But we had our share of drunks and perverts, wife beaters and losers. So what?

It took far too long, but the bitter seeds the morally bankrupt Atwater and then Rove have sewn are really starting to sprout.

They were always ugly and hideous, but now they look that way to everyone. I saw that disgusting woman from Minnesota alleging that Obama was anti-American, and it was just sick. You could hear the hatred in her voice.

The Republicans have become mean, twisted, and malignant. They say "Country First!" and then proceed to condemn everyone in it. I'm with x4mr and want to see a blue tsunami that sweeps all of them away forever.

Remember Blackhole Sun?

"Liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God."

So said Rep. Robin Hayes, R-N.C., at a rally in North Carolina Saturday for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Yeah. It's the liberals doing the hating. The GOP is in meltdown.

Breaking news:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Gov. Sarah Palin charged the state for her children to travel with her, including to events where they were not invited, and later amended expense reports to specify that they were on official business.

The charges included costs for hotel and commercial flights for three daughters to join Palin to watch their father in a snowmobile race, and a trip to New York, where the governor attended a five-hour conference and stayed with 17-year-old Bristol for five days and four nights in a luxury hotel.

In all, Palin has charged the state $21,012 for her three daughters' 64 one-way and 12 round-trip commercial flights since she took office in December 2006. In some other cases, she has charged the state for hotel rooms for the girls.

Alaska law does not specifically address expenses for a governor's children. The law allows for payment of expenses for anyone conducting official state business.

As governor, Palin justified having the state pay for the travel of her daughters — Bristol, 17; Willow, 14; and Piper, 7 — by noting on travel forms that the girls had been invited to attend or participate in events on the governor's schedule.

But some organizers of these events said they were surprised when the Palin children showed up uninvited, or said they agreed to a request by the governor to allow the children to attend.
