RNSC: Al Franken Laughs at the Disabled

RNSC: Al Franken Laughs at the Disabled

Al Franken has been the target of some of the ugliest political ads of 2008, courtesy of the Republican National Senatorial Committee. This one really takes the cake. The voiceover claims that Franken "humiliates minorities", "demeans women", "writes pornography", and "laughs at the disabled," amongst other defects.  Life imitates art, I guess. Here’s a transcript of a Saturday Night Live sketch from the 1990s featuring Al Franken as a political analyst discussing negative ads on the fake news broadcast "":Al Franken: Uh, yes, Norm. This appears to be the roughest campaign year ever.Norm...

House GOP Aides: McCain Clueless on Bailout

House GOP Aides: McCain Clueless on Bailout

Initially, I was annoyed that McCain went off to showboat in DC over a financial crisis he didn’t understand. Now, I feel like he did us all a big favor. He role-played the kind of leadership we can expect from him–like "Better Know a District," minus Stephen Colbert.Having returned to DC to "help" with the financial crisis, McCain acts decisively to provoke at the bailout negotiations, without first bothering to read the plan he was shouting about, or the one he was attacking.Luckily, his opponent, a conservative Republican pushing a rival plan involving tax cuts and further deregulation,...

LA Times: John McCain Was a Crappy Pilot

LA Times: John McCain Was a Crappy Pilot

Maybe Tim Dickinson’s on McCain the make-believe maverick emboldened the LA Times to examine Senator Flyboy’s as an aviator.McCain crashed five times during his years in the Navy. One time a missile hit his fuel tank, setting off a chain of events that caused one of the most lethal fires at sea in the history of the navy. That wasn’t McCain’s fault. Of course, it wasn’t his fault that he got shot down over Vietnam. However there were three other crashes where the Navy officially questioned McCain’s skills and judgment as a pilot:The crash was one of three early in McCain’s aviation career...

By Ridiculing Redskins, Colbert Made Racism ‘Truthy’

By Ridiculing Redskins, Colbert Made Racism ‘Truthy’

Stephen Colbert is not a blowhard right-wing cable news host, but he plays one on The Colbert Report. The Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report is a sexist, racist, egomaniacal jingoist, whom Stephen Colbert the comic describes as a willfully ignorant idiot. A recent episode of the Report included a bit mocking Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins football team, for setting up a bogus “Original Americans Foundation” in attempt to distract the public from the fact that his team’s name is a racial slur against the aforementioned original Americans. Despite widespread public...

Verizon and AT&T Provided Free Cell Towers for McCain Estate - Shadowproof

Communications giants Verizon and AT&T provided free portable cell phone towers for , the Washington Post reports. The companies also plan to build permanent wireless towers on land provided by the McCains, even though the installations would scarcely benefit anyone besides the McCain family. The companies acknowledge the loans of portable cell towers, which are normally reserved for natural disasters, arguing that it’s not acceptable for a presidential candidate not to have cell phone access on his rural estate. Ethics lawyers said Cindy McCain’s dealings with the wireless companies stand...
