The conservative consensus is creative people can't change shit.

Some conservatives are upset because PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley, told Harry Reid to put down the crack pipe and acknowledge that Democrats in Congress work for Barack Obama. Smiley added that, "We all work for Barack Obama." This little comment has brought out the media bias conspiracy again.
Here is the video:
TThe ugly yet completely scripted theater that was Roland Burris being turned away from the Senate today has managed to make Burris appear to be an innocent victim, and the Senate leadership racist. Harry Reid has been outmaneuvered by Rod Blagojevich.
Probably the last thing John McCain wanted to do on NBC's Meet the Press was defend the $150,000 spent on Sarah Palin's clothing, but Tom Brokaw asked about it and after some fumbling McCain called Palin a role model to millions and said that the American people don't care about her clothes.
Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama today was not a big surprise. He has been hinting at it for months. The shock is in how deeply a man who was Secretary of State a few years ago has broken with his own party. Powell not only rejected McCain/Palin but the entire direction of the GOP.
In an interview with Fox News today, John McCain hinted that he could be soon campaigning with Joe the Plumber. The problem for McCain is that his latest gimmick held a press conference today where he sounded less like a concerned middle class citizen, and more like an empty headed neo-con.
While speaking to reporters in Long Beach, CA, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin denied an AP analysis of her recent remarks suggesting that Barack Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers is akin to Obama palling around with terrorists were racially tinged.
Once some House members who are up for reelection were given political cover, by a bill which contained minor improvements, they got in line and voted for the bailout/rescue bill by a margin of 263-171. Over 90 Republicans voted for the bill. The big question is what changed their minds?

"This bill failed because Barack Obama and the Democrats put politics ahead of country," said McCain advisor Douglas Holtz-Eakin.
All eyes were on the House of Representatives today, as the leadership in both parties tried to rally enough votes to pass the $700 billion bailout of the banking sector, but in the end, the bill failed by a vote of 228-205 against, thus possibily dooming both Wall St. and the presidential campaign of John McCain.

Chris Dodd that congressional negotiators have reached a fundamental agreement on the federal bailout for the financial sector, it is clear that Republican presidential candidate John McCain took a big gamble on the crisis and lost.
The results of the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was just released, and these poll results confirm what three other national polls this week have shown, this race is a dead heat. So far this week, we have seen the ABC, CNN, CBS, and now the NBC poll all show this race as a tie.
Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden was on Meet the Press this morning talking about a variety of issues, but most interesting were his thoughts on debating Sarah Palin, and her silence on the issues.
Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia has refused to apologize for calling Barack and Michelle Obama uppity. He has released a statement claiming that he has never heard the term uppity used in a racial way. He is from Georgia, and has never heard the term used that way. Does anybody buy this?
