So it isn’t just Matthews

MSNBC Change Promo

MSNBC Promo

Looks like MSNBC, as a network, has decided to make its preference for Obama a promotional tagline. But just ignore it. Remember. They’re journalists. They say so (even though Matthews says its his job to make sure the Obama Presidency ‘works’).

MSNBC Promo: ‘Experience the Power of Change’

… MSNBC has now seamlessly integrated its own promotional advertising with that of the Obama campaign.

Matthews: My Job Is To Make Obama Presidency a Success

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah, well, you know what? I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work, and I think that —

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is that your job? You just talked about being a journalist!

MATTHEWS: Yeah, it is my job. My job is to help this country.

An incredulous Scarborough kept pressing, astonished at such a complete 180 from Matthews’s repeated insistence during the Bush presidency that he had to hold the government accountable.

It boggles the mind.

My favorite Hillary quote

I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002.

Obama Civilian Security

So Obama annouced back in July his intention to create a civilian national security force.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

No really sure what the means but it sure sounds a hell of a lot like the National Guard.

It also reminds me a bit (just a bit) of Kerry’s mandatory national service draft program.

I also can’t help but wonder if Barney Frank wants to cut the budget of this ‘security force’ by 25% as well.

Excuse the language

Its just that I thought the following info was slightly interesting.

A quick check of the stats reveals the top three searches leading people to this site are:

f**k obama
f**k america
f**k mccain

Obama leads McCain in f**k searches nearly 4 to 1. America has a slight lead over McCain at 2 to 1. What does this mean? I have no idea.

(side note: I’m pretty sure its this post that is causing these search hits)

Good Riddance

Sen. Stevens guilty on all counts, career in peril

Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens was convicted of seven corruption charges Monday in a trial that threatened to end the 40-year career of Alaska’s political patriarch in disgrace

Stevens, 84, was convicted of all the felony charges he faced of lying about free home renovations and other gifts from a wealthy oil contractor.

Stevens should resign immediately.  If he doesn’t, the Senate should boot him.   It only takes a 2/3rds vote. Hopefully Senator Steven’s career is now on that ‘Bridge to Nowhere’.

The Republican party deserves to lose this Senate seat for allowing him to run for re-election in the first place.
