I am so happy. I am also relieved we don't have to worry about Sarah Palin with the New- Clear codes. I am going to miss watching endless amounts of youtube footage of her making a total ass of herself. Maybe she will get her own reality show or something. "Are You Smarter Than A Moose?". Who knows, I'm sure it would be a hit for the FOX Network.

What a magical day.

I don't think we've seen the last of Sarah Palin in the political spotlight, sad to say.

she'll have to revive the Bull Moose party or some other B.S. , because I don't think the GOP powers that be are gonna risk that maelstrom of shit again, no matter how much she fired up the wingnuts.

From Newsweek:
NEWSWEEK has also learned that Palin's shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. While publicly supporting Palin, McCain's top advisers privately fumed at what they regarded as her outrageous profligacy. One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family‚Ä"clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent "tens of thousands" more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as "Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast," and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

A Palin aide said: "Governor Palin was not directing staffers to put anything on their personal credit cards, and anything that staffers put on their credit cards has been reimbursed, like an expense. Nasty and false accusations following a defeat say more about the person who made them than they do about Governor Palin."

McCain himself rarely spoke to Palin during the campaign, and aides kept him in the dark about the details of her spending on clothes because they were sure he would be offended. Palin asked to speak along with McCain at his Arizona concession speech Tuesday night, but campaign strategist Steve Schmidt vetoed the request.

This chapter is closed so it is time for a united America to help the new administration.

"well, mom, maybe jesus WANTED obama to win!"

I don't really have a strong opinion on Obama but I find this kind of extreme adoration for him to be dangerous. I understand that Obama offers a sense of hope to Americans because he is not Bush and also because he is not Mccain/Palin, who is/are likely no better than Bush. However, I'm just concerned about the trust and adoration that Americans are showing for Obama. I haven't researched Obama enough to make sweeping statements about any of his policies or about what kind of president he will be, I just wish that sensible Americans would keep the lessons of history in mind. Specifically to be wary of politicians that swoop in to save the day from a government that nobody liked.
Posted: Nov 6, 2008 10:55 pm
 
Yeah, we'll all be sure to keep that in mind.

what time is the press conference?
Posted: Nov 7, 2008 9:55 am
 
From the Political Ticker site -

'Palin also denied the suggestion her presence on the GOP ticket contributed to Obama's electoral landslide victory.

"I don't think anybody should give Sarah Palin that much credit, that I would trump an economic time in this nation that occurred about two months ago, that my presence on the ticket would trump the economic crisis that America found itself in a couple of months ago and attribute John McCain's loss to me," she said.'

I loved his response to the questions "Have you spoke to any past presidents?" and he responded "In terms of speaking to former presidents, I've spoken to all of them... I don't want to get any Nancy Reagan thing and do any seances." Ha!

that was funny, although it was a stupid question. we already know he's spoken with bush abnd clinton. that only leaves carter. still, i truly believe he's gonna work for his paycheck.

Look,
8 years of George W. Bush = hell. Division, serious affronts to the Constitution, an economy SERIOUSLY in the toilet, a war that was entered into with a lie that has cost thousands of American lives, the laughing stock of the free world...plus he can't even utter a coherent sentence

8 year of Bill Clinton = some great calls and some really questionable calls.
Spent his entire presidency fending off the Right until they finally got the "gotcha!"
And about something as stupid as a blowjob

4 years of GHW Bush - can't remember anything about what happened with him except he vomited in someone's lap

8 years of Ronald Reagan - doddering old beloved fool ACTOR who convinced America that trickle down was a-okay, and ushered in the most diabolic shit ever in USA politics, the Religious Right.

4 years of Jimmy Carter - a good and honest man who totally had the interest of all the citizens of the country at heart, but basically totally ineffectual

3 years of Gerald Ford - uhhh??? Best known for his wife's addictions.

5 years of Nixon - crook, resigned in disgrace and did untold damage to this country in many ways.

6 years of Johnson - did many good things, but was totally unwilling and unable to follow Kennedy

2 years of Kennedy - the great shining hope of the new America in the 60s who was murdered in the street. For many people, his assasination was THE END, and in a lot of ways it was.

That pretty much sums up all the administrations in my lifetime, in my extremely limited view.
This may all be extremely simplistic, but it's not a real shock that people absolutely LOVE Obama. Especially people who have been liberals all their life. He's smart, he's steady, he appears to have no hidden agendas (oil money, cough, oil money), he's a physical embodiment of the American Dream, and he gives people HOPE for a better USA - something that's been in short supply in this country for many years.
Posted: Nov 7, 2008 6:10 pm
 
PS...do some research. Watch the speeches and the videos. Read some of his "agendas". Read the Newsweek series about the campaign trail. It won't take you long to figure out why he's not just the great black hope.
Posted: Nov 7, 2008 7:02 pm
 
He wrote a whole darn book, too. It's not like he's some unknown quantity or something...

Is that issue actually in stores yet? I just found that campaign trail article online, but I'm pretty sure the November 17 issue (with Obama on the cover) won't be on stands for a few days yet. Stores I frequent just got the November 10 issue (with cover art by Gary Taxali).

I'd be interested to know. I want a copy. Fascinating article.

Obama is gonna go down as one of the greatest Presidents in history. Just like Bush will go down as one of the worst. 2 failed Wars and a Depression. Congratulations, Genius. Wifey has both of Obama's books. The last one is called The Audacity of Hope-a quote by Jerimiah Write. Ha. This is a good thing for America. And the World. I hope he ends this stupid War soon. America rules!

Posted: Nov 10, 2008 4:27 pm
 
Jay, you're right it is the Nov. 17th issue... but we got it before the Gary Taxali cover one and the girl at Barnes and Noble said they did have it but it was sold out...I'll look again this weekend.

motherfucker you WON the goddamn election, stop hitting me up for money:

Kevin --

In the months and years ahead, we're going to accomplish amazing things together. No president has ever had the support of such a powerful grassroots movement, and Barack and Joe will need you to continue fighting alongside them.

But before we take the next step, we need to get our house in order.

The Democratic National Committee poured all of its resources into building our successful 50-state field program. And they played a crucial role in helping Barack win in unlikely states like North Carolina and Indiana. We even picked up an electoral vote in Nebraska.

The DNC took on considerable debt to make this happen.

Make a donation of $30 or more now to help the DNC pay for these efforts, and you'll get a commemorative 2008 Victory T-shirt.

Help the DNC and get a 2008 Victory T-shirt

The DNC began building a 50-state organization in 2005.

The infrastructure they put in place over the last four years opened up a new batch of battleground states where a Democratic nominee hadn't been competitive for a generation.

In the final few months, the DNC went above and beyond to expand our ground efforts and ensure victory.

We couldn't have won this election without their support.

As we start laying the groundwork for real change, we need to help the DNC recover the resources it took to win. Please make a donation today and get your 2008 Victory T-shirt:

https://donate.barackobama.com/victoryshirt

This movement for change is just getting started, and we look forward to working with you to bring the change this country needs.

Thanks for everything you did to elect Barack and Joe,

Obama for America

Ha ha ha ha ha ...morons.

Obama thinks he is a good talker, but he is often undisciplined when he speaks. He needs to understand that as President, his words will be scrutinized and will have impact whether he intends it or not. In this regard, President Bush is an excellent model; Obama should take a lesson from his example. Bush never gets sloppy when he is speaking publicly.

I like Obama as a person, but I am not convinced that he will make a good president.
And since when is a President of the United States really The Man In Charge.

i think it's more the idea that ANY pol can write his or her own sentences that beguiles us. not to say he's not literate, humane, funny, and smart. and i love rahm. but those books are kind of thin, kind of generalized abstractions, as befitting a man who writes memoirs so early in his life.

he's no jeffereson or lincoln. those idiots could write.as could US Grant when, a la faulkner, he was NOT knee deep in a barrel of bourbon.
