What will they do?

When Hillary Clinton is not nominated? I'm 100% sure there will be a floor vote. Hillary will lose. I suppose they will hope for a John McCain win, followed by Hillary 2012.... But, when Sen. Obama wins, what then?

McCain Girls

This was interesting (from McCain's EW interview):
You seem to really know your cable TV. What about the Internet? Do you ever look at the campaign spoofs on YouTube?
I've seen some of them. Some of them are too painful for me to watch. One of my favorites is ''It's Raining McCain.'' But I also like that early one they did for Obama 
[in which celebrities such as Scarlett Johansson recite lines from a speech as if it were a song]. That was really excellent.
I would have thought the McCain Girls were too painful to watch ;). Even he has to admit that "Yes We Can" is better.

As if I needed an excuse to post this:

Subtle hint to VP?

When asked who his favorite movie/TV President is, Sen. Obama replied:
You know who was a great movie president? Jeff Bridges in The Contender. That was a great movie president. He was charming and essentially an honorable person, but there was a rogue about him. The way he would order sandwiches — he was good at that.
Hmm... Who was the VP in that movie?

Misleading Headlines

Here's the WaPo headline:
Report: Exxon Execs Gave More to Obama
Here's what the report says:
Through June, Exxon employees have given Obama $42,100 to McCain's $35,166. Chevron favors Obama $35,157 to $28,500, and Obama edges out McCain with BP $16,046 vs. $11,500. McCain leads the money race with nearly every other top giver in the oil and gas industry, though -- Koch Industries, Valero, Marathon Oil, Occidental Petroleum, ConocoPhillips, the list goes on.
Notice something? Look, I work for an oil company, so technically, I am one of those oil company employees donating to Sen. Obama. Is this the same as our Company's BOD maxing out to Sen. McCain? No.

Thank you CBC

ABC's Political Punch article on Sen. Obama's denunciation of Nikki Tinker has this detail:
Cohen tried to join the Congressional Black Caucus to no avail. Only three members of the 42-member Congressional Black caucus -- Reps. John Conyers of Michigan, Jesse Jackson, Jr. of Illinois, and Charlie Rangel of New York -- have endorsed Cohen.
Looks like the CBC has three people that actually stand up for the interests of Black people, instead of standing up for a disgraceful Black face.

Job Killing Machine

So, I see the oppositions is going to portray Sen. Obama as a "job killing machine." Interesting, because I'm pretty sure there is someone who is a "friend of business" and "low taxes" in the White House now. How's that job growth going?

Straight Talk Express crashes

That's not a metaphor for anything is it? Notice, the bus driver was making an illegal right turn.

So much construction

God, the past two days have been so crazy at work. Replacing all the files that got ruined it taking forever! Thankfully we are almost done with that, but there is still so much construction going on. It's so hard to read anything political and stay in tune with everything, but I'm going to try to catch up.
