Late Late Nite FDL: You Might Be An Idiot If
You nominate the former head of The Harper Valley P.T.A. to be Vice President of the United States.

Jeannie C. Riley  “Harper Valley P.T.A.”

You might be an idiot if:

You nominate the former head of The Harper Valley P.T.A. to be Vice President of the United States.

You keep meeting up with Katie Couric.

You graduated with a degree in journalism, but can’t name one newspaper you’ve read.

You don’t understand the source or value of your husband’s Union provided health care benefits.

You think your friend of 30 years “made a choice” to be gay.

Mercy sakes alive, the stupid, it burns so bad even Dan Quayle could make it feel better.

 What’s on your mind tonight?

    McCain now wishes ?they hadn?t picked? Gwen Ifill to moderate VP debate.
    Yesterday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that he has “confidence that Gwen Ifill will do a professional job” moderating the Vice Presidential debate despite the fact that she is writing a book called “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.” “I think she will do a totally objective job,” McCain said.

    Yesterday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said that he has “confidence that Gwen Ifill will do a professional job” moderating the Vice Presidential debate despite the fact that she is writing a book called “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.” “I think she will do a totally objective job,” McCain said. Yet this morning on Fox News, McCain changed his tune:

    MCCAIN: Listen, frankly I wish they hadn’t picked a moderator that isn’t writing a book favorable to Barack Obama, I mean let’s face it. […] Frankly I would imagine that there’s other people out there who aren’t writing a book that’s going to be on inauguration day favorable to Senator Obama but that’s life.

    Fox’s Gretchen Carlson even reminded McCain that he had previously said, “[S]he’ll be fair.” But now McCain says, “I have to have confidence” in Ifill, adding, “Look life isn’t fair.” Watch it:

    Playing Games

    Playing Games
    The U.S. dollar is soaring (at least in relation to the British pound), the price of oil is plummeting, stock markets are calming in the eye of the storm, the big bad banks are going down like dominoes. At first sight, what’s not to like about the failure of the U.S. House of Representatives to rubberstamp the Bush-Paulson-Pelosi-Reid financial rescue package? Better, from a strictly Democrat point of view, Nancy Pelosi and company are squeezing every drop of partisan advantage from the process itself, by which lame-duck Republicans are trying to fix a largely Democrat-created problem that Republicans like John McCain could see coming for at least the last three years, and actually tried to do something about, over Democrat objections.
