I can't believe these guys have not been outed for conversations they may be having off camera. I mean the stuff they say when the camera's rolling is abhorent. SO behind the scenes must be unbearable.

I sometimes think I would like to work for one of those jerks for a month (if i could stand it) and get some nice behind the scenes footage of the raw racist stuff, and then sell it to the highest bidder.

I can't believe the people who work around them have not outted them.

"We may be looking at the largest electorial sweep we have seen in decades" Joe Scumbag

"Or not" David Gregory, what a fucking dick!

Well they finally got around to talking about how awesome Obama's ground is, and how McLame fucked it up, with his Bush style campaigning

Then Pat said the the quote in the heading.
Joe said the second quote
and David Gregory doesn't matter

OMG just heard on MSNBC
a 90 year old woman shot herself in the chest when the sheriffs came to issue her an eviction notice on her home, because of foreclosure.

She will survive and the bank has decided to forgive the debt

so that's all it takes for compassion from the banking industry a bullet to your heart

Could a Republican have been behind this?!?!

It seems a "misprint" in a New Jersey telephone book has led to many people calling a phone sex service instead of reaching a New Jersey Democratic political organization.

The listing for the Sussex County Democratic Committee in Embarq's white pages incorrectly listen their number.

Instead, callers were greeted to a seductive female's voice, inviting them to pay for sex chat.

Glenn Lewis, a spokesman for Embarq, said that a "transposition error caused the last three digits of the Democrats' phone number to be misprinted."


Lewis then assured that the number had been corrected in Embarq's directory assistance database.

Hope they got a refund as well.

I remember that day so clearly. It is forever burned into the front of my memory,
as I am sure it is with many many many people.

I got up that day with the intention of getting to work early, I had a flexible start time
I could be at work as early as 7am to as late as 10 am. I wanted to get to work before 9am

As I got ready to head out the door, the urged to eat came over me. See at the time I was 6 months Pregnant and If I didn't eat in the morning, the walk from my car to my office building would leave me feeling faint.

So I set down to eat a bowl and cereal and watch the news. Then it happened, the news was saying that someone "accidentally" flew a plane into on of the towers at the world trade center. As I set there in shock, I like millions of people, witness the second plane hit. I called a friend and told her what was happening.

At 9:10 I got off the phone, I had to get to work. I live 2 exits down from my Office on the Highway, even on a busy day I can get to work in 15 mins. I took the exit to get to my Office and for some reason that day the exit was backed up for 30 mins. I got through the traffic, driving in merge ramps, because the exit to the parking lot was within sight, I did some illegal maneuvering to get to the lot.

As I was coming around the off Ramp, I heard this loud explosion, and my car shook violently. I knew immediately what had just happened, and I was horrified. As I came around the curve of the Off Ramp, I saw confirmation of my fears.

There was 100ft flame shooting up from the side of the building that I and all the members of the contractor staff worked on. I worked at the Pentagon, I was on the Team in charge of Renovation to the Pentagon.

At that moment I thought 2 things, Everyone I work with and know in that building are dead.
And everyone who knows I work in that building, think I am dead.

My bosses were working in an Annex building in the North Parking. I headed there first, I was met at the gate by my bosses and everyone rushing out of the Annex building. I remember my boss saying something I never thought I would hear "We are under attack!" We all stood there paralyzed, horrified, terrified.

It took me about 45 mins to get through to my husband, he had come to work with me several times, when I had to work on the weekends. I knew he was at work, wondering if I was dead. I called him and a chorus of voices on the other end screamed. "Mike it's your wife, she's alive! She's alive!"

I started to breakdown and cry, but everyone around me said I had to keep it together, it wasn't safe for my son if I got too emotional.

It took 24 hours to find out if my immediate co-workers were dead or alive. I worked closely with two other women. They had survived, but they had quite an ordeal, they had to evacuate without their keys or money. God was looking out for them that day, and somehow they met up with a women who had her keys and agreed to take them home. One lived in Bethesda Maryland, and the other lived on the opposite end in Reston, VA. We had 90 people on the PENREN contract.
We lost one guy from our team, his name was Alan Boyle, his wife was pregnant with their 3rd child. And she worked in the Pentagon as well. Last I heard Alan's wife, with the help of the red cross moved back to her home state.

At the time I was 6 months pregnant and I weighed 220 pounds, the ladies I worked with told me how they were in a room on the outer ring, the E ring, when the plane hit. They didn't know what it was, they just knew they had to run. When they got to the escalators, the stairway was filled with smoke. They became disoriented. Fortunately they were clear minded enough to follow were everyone else was going.

They didn't know about the planes hitting the WTC, they didn't know what happen. All they knew was they had to run! Security Officers were screaming at people which way to go, which way they couldn't go. They made it out side to south parking. And kept running until they got to the Arlington National Cemetery. They said that's when they turned around at the top of the hill, they could see just what they had lived through.

I know I would not have been able to run like they ran, I often think had I been in the building I would have died that day. Based on the time the plane hit, and the time I would have been at work, had the traffic not been backed up. I would have been on the corridor the plane flew into, heading to meet Corrine in the E-ring.

I hate everything our Government did as a result of this day. I hate being reminded of this day.
I hurt for all the soldiers and Iraq civilians that have day since this day. And I pray to God
it's not too late to fix the Mistake our Government continues to make, because of this day.

I hate Bush, he knew this was coming he did nothing. My death would have been nothing more than collateral damage to that man. My babies death, would have meant nothing to that Man. I, and all the people who died that day were just pawns in an evil twisted game of chess. McCain admitted we went to war for Oil. Everyone knows Bush and
Cheney lied. I would rather spend the day watching Impeachment hearings for Bush and Cheney, than have to be insulted and degraded and mocked by having Bush at a Ceremony for the dead.

Today my son is 6 years old, I have another little boy who is 3. I don't know why I got to live that day, and so many others didn't, I hesitate to thank God for that, because then I would have to ask Why was I spared, and others had to die. I do pray that this year we learn from out mistakes, and this year come Nov 4th we begin to right a 7 year wrong. And this year, the world begins to forgive us.

By Eugene Robinson
Tuesday, September 9, 2008; Page A23

John McCain is no silver-tongued orator, as he proved in St. Paul, but it's hard not to be stirred when he speaks of wanting only to serve a cause greater than himself -- until you take a closer look and see that he's running one of the most egocentric presidential campaigns in memory.

Not that Barack Obama lacks a healthy opinion of himself, mind you. And no one wants the next president to be paralyzed with insecurity, or to doubt, even for a minute, that he's the right man for the job. But after ridiculing Obama as a preening celebrity, if not a self-proclaimed messiah, McCain is campaigning on a platform that can be summed up in three words: me, me, me.

Much has been made of the fact that he's a Republican running on a pledge to clean up the intolerable, unforgivable mess created over the past eight years by a Republican president -- and, for much of that time, a Republican-controlled Congress in which McCain himself had great power and influence. It's amusing to listen to a man in his fourth term in the Senate (after two terms in the House) rail against evil "Washington," as if he weren't one of this modern-day Sodom's most prominent denizens.

There has been less comment, however, on the extent to which McCain rejects not only his party's record but also important tenets of its stated philosophy. He's a Republican who doesn't entirely believe in modern Republicanism.

I am watching CNN breaking down the numbers
and according to their expert
we are 53 trillion dollars in Debt to ourselves
That includes the 9 trillon from bush
and all the things we are promising to spend money on, ie social security.

They put the blame on everyone in Charge and they mentioned something about the way congress is aloud to spend money changed in 2002 I missed that part. Can someone explain what happened in 2002?

Also the expert (sorry no name) said neither Obama or McCain's plain really address this issue properly.

What are your thoughts on this subject DU?
Sorry I don't have more info, I didn't start focusing in until it was almost over

during the Primary season, I met this woman who was a strong Obama supporter. In the course of getting to know her she told me her inlaws were strongly for Hillary and they were very prejudice towards Obama, and would use all kinds of horrible words when discussing Obama.

Well I saw her this morning we lost touch for a while, but now our kid go to the same school.
Anyway we immediately went to the subject of Obama, and she told me Her family from Scranton got to meet Joe Biden.

So I asked, so is your family for Obama
she said YES!!! 100% they are very excited about supporting him now!

WOW I don't even have the proper word to explain how excited that makes me. Both as an Obama Supporter and a Sistah!!!

She has lied about her bridge to no where envolvement

She commited a security breach by giving up her sons MOS

IF Trig is hers and she woke to Find out her water "leaked" or "broke" at 4am in Texas. and she flew back to Alaska after giving her speech is completely insane!

IF Trig is not hers and she is hiding the fact that her daughter is now a teenage mother and the Abstinence Only not birth control teaching policy doesn't work. Not to mention the trama to mom and baby to have to pretend and live the lie.

She has shown signs of abuse of power
by Firing the guy who wouldn't fire her ex-brother in-law
She cc's copies of Offical state emails to her husband, then claims executive priviledge when she is investigated for this practive.

And last but not least
Anyone who uses being on the PTA as viable experience for running Our country is well umm Off.

Ok sorry I have no links these are all thing I have either read on DU, or other sites linked from DU since we learned she existed.
