During last night’s final presidential debate, in addition to stroking Joe The Plumber’s ego, John McCain used oh-so-retro air quotes to emphasize his stance on abortion and abortion legislation.
Just again, the example of the eloquence of Senator Obama. He’s [for] health for the mother. You know, that’s been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That’s the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, ‘health.’
All the air quotes really did was call my attention to that notion — the health of the mother — and what that really means. By the tone of McCain’s fingers, you’d think that means when the woman has a cold, she can have a late-term abortion. So I decided to find out, in general, what the “health of the mother” really entails. Keep reading »
In last night’s final presidential debate, “Joe The Plumber” was mentioned by the candidates NINE times. You know what that means? Joe The Plumber is famous! More famously than Joe Six-Pack even! So who the hell IS Joe The Plumber, besides an obviously perfect name for a stock porn character? Well, turns out Joe The Plumber is, in fact, a real dude by the name of Joe Wurzelbacher. Hailing from Toledo, Ohio, the reason why he was discussed so frequently during the debate is because Joe plans to open his own plumbing business. McCain alleges that under Obama’s tax plan, Joe’s taxes would be raised because his small business could make more than $250,000; Obama says that his desire isn’t to punish successful small business owners like Joe, it’s that he wants to spread the wealth and allow other people to succeed as well. Whatever — you can decide how you feel about their tax plans when you go to vote on November 4th. More important, however, is what Joe The Plumber is going to do with his newfound fame! Acting as his imaginary agent/manager, I have some ideas… Keep reading »
And he’s going to prove it, whether this little rugrat likes it or not! [Bethlehem, PA, 10/08/08] Keep reading »
Yesterday we posted about the new website “Yes We Can (Hold Babies)”, a blog comprised of adorable Pro-Obama babies and babies being held by the Democratic Presidential candidate. Then we noticed a strange thing: while it’s easy to find plenty of Associated Press photos of Obama holding and smooching little rugrats, McCain is rarely photographed with babies (see above EXCLUSIVE PROOF). Of the results for McCain, none of them actually featured the Senator HOLDING a child, though one was of him standing in front of a picture of a fetus. So what does this mean? Does the photographic record show that McCain HATES babies? Weigh in! Keep reading »
Second Presidential debate down, one more to go before we vote in November! Hooray! Last night’s debate between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain was done in the “town hall” style, in which Average Joe (Sixpacks!) asked some of the questions, while moderator Tom Brokaw directed. While mind-numbingly boring at times, most pundits from all the major networks agree — Obama took this one, hands down. But what were the real highlights of the night? My observations, after the jump… Keep reading »
I’m not sure, but Barack Obama supporters certainly have a lot of cute examples if they decide to use that as campaign fodder. Oh wait! They have! “Yes We Can (Hold Babies)” has already launched and it’s filled with adorableness. But what about McCain? While there’s no site called “Country First (Babies Too!)” (snatching that URL up, pronto!), I tried to find a picture of McCain doing some infant nuzzling on AP. No such luck. After the jump, the closest thing I could find…. Keep reading »
