WT…?!?!?! More Random Crapola!

Okay, today has to go down as one of the wackiest ever! Let me see if I’ve got this straight — no, I can’t even go there; it’s all giving me whiplash! And just what WAS the point of lying to David Letterman about going to Washington, only to end up sitting down for a nice chat with Katie Couric?!?!?!

Instead, I’ll go with these:

  • McCain’s Plan: Blurt Out Random Crap: Bob Cescas probably said it best in this hysterical column at Huff Post: “If what we’ve seen from the senator so far is him ‘focusing’ on the economy — what the hell is he like when he’s multitasking? What’s next, McCain? Suspending the election?”
  • Wanda Sykes tears into McCain and Palin on Leno last night:”That’s a crazy, scary lady right there. Gun-toting and, you know, shooting caribou. … They don’t let her talk. They say, “Oh, she’s meeting with the world leaders.” But there’s no reporters. I’m like, is she meeting with the world leaders, or did you take her to the Epcot Center? Let her drink around the world? You know, because I’ve done that. Maybe I should be Secretary of State. … She has been to Mexico. Does this ring a bell, George W. Bush? … She was like, ‘I can see Russia from my backyard.’ What — what — what — while you were delivering letters to Santa Claus at the North Pole?”
  • Letterman’s zingers just wouldn’t stop tonight:
    • “What are you going to do if you’re elected and things get tough? Suspend being president? We’ve got a guy like that now!”
    • “You don’t suspend your campaign. This doesn’t smell right. This isn’t the way a tested hero behaves. I think someone’s putting something in his metamucil.”

What the …?: Sarah Palin

Where oh where to start?

This could go on and on. The only explanation I can think of for this nutsoid decision is that it is blatant pandering to the religious right to try to secure that fractured base. But I also wonder if McCain’s ego is so gyne-(oops! Freudian slip)-normous that he can’t even put the good of the country before his political aspirations. No matter how you look at, it’s scary s*&#.

What the …????

  • I’m kind of with the pundits: Why are the Dems NOT firing at Darth Cheney and SauROVEn? Go after those bozos! Wait, John Kerry did — he dared to invoke “Guantanamo” and “torture.” Oh yeah, and the McCain-ROVE” ticket — you GO, John!
  • What Joe Biden speech was MSNBC’s Chuck Todd watching? After Tweety and Keith O raved about how emotional Biden was, Todd comes on and starts pooh-poohing it as unemotional. Whaaa?
  • How come no one has applied the term “flip-flopper” to He of Too Many Houses? Kerry ran through a litany of those in his brilliant “Senator McCain vs. Candidate McCain” riff. Looks like a flip-flopper, smells like a flip-flopper, just call him a flip-flopper!

The Barry & Joe Show

And now for tonight’s speechifying:

Big Bill: I’ll have to watch the replay — I was heading home from work when he took the stage, so I heard him on NPR then rushed into the house and tried to listen over barking hungry dogs. Not exactly conducive to concentration. I think he hit it, although it wasn’t one for the ages like Hillary’s. But he remains the presidential Elvis!

John Kerry: This might have been the speech of the evening. I stumbled on it when I moved from MSNBC to CSPAN and whoa, the real president (I still think he won in 2004) was slapping around He of Too Many Houses. Of course, what was going on while Kerry was delivering the “red meat” the talking heads keep bemoaning the lack thereof? Well, NBC was busy with America’s Got Talent, ABC had Supernanny making kids behave, and CBS — most appropriately — had Criminal Minds going (yeah, and we know where they live — Mordor, I mean, DC!). STOP READING NOW AND WATCH THIS SPEECH. DO NOT PASS GO!

Bo Biden: The kid can TALK! What a great introduction.

Joe Biden: An interesting mix of muted musings (was I wrong in thinking a complete hush repeatedly descended on the hall?) combined with some Joe fire. Anyone who can go from stillness to power — ah, Joe, you delivered! Loved the line about Darth Cheney and pointing out how wrong HOTMH has been, over and over.

The Big Moment: Yes, MSNBC gave it away (Ken, bad boy!), but it sure was groovy when Barry walked out and hollered, “Hello, Democrats!” and joined the Biden clan. Then when “The Rising” piped up, I was dancin’ and groovin’, shoutin’ “I’m READY!” Good thing the neighbors can’t look into my living room! And I love that Barry referred to Invesco as Mile High Stadium!
