After watching the pro-Obama “American Prayer” you’ll probably wonder if there is a God.

“I vomited, then crapped, and was waiting for the second wave of vomit….and that was just 30 seconds in….,” Jon.

That pretty much sums up this debacle. Even the most enthusiastic Obama supporter would have a hard time getting excited over this. Set aside the subpar lyrics, b-list lip synchers, and the pathetic comparison between Obama and MLK, Jr., it just doesn’t mean anything. I mean, it’s a bunch of poor metaphors that attempt to sound deep, but really add up to nothing. Ohhhh…….oh…yeah, ok, now I see why this is an Obama video.

George Costanza has hit a new low….

New Hillary Clinton video-Please help me pay off my loans…please? Pretty please?

June 24, 2008

This is rich. Hillary Clinton loaned herself around half of the $20 million she’s in debt when her campaign was broke back in January. She’s got to pay it back before her party’s convention in August or she’ll face some consequences. What do to? Beg while making your supporters think they’re doing something for the good of their country/party/gender. From Cnn.com. Watch Clinton’s money grubbing pleas yourself here.

Hillary Clinton is still on the hunt for campaign cash.

The New York Democrat is well over $20 million in debt, nearly half of which Clinton loaned herself personally earlier in the year when her campaign was virtually broke and faced life-or-death primary contests.

Watch: What went wrong for Clinton?

When it comes to recovering her personal loan, it’s a race against the clock.

Under campaign finance laws spearhead by current presumptive Republican nominee John McCain, Clinton must pay herself back before the party’s convention in late August, or else she is only allowed to receive $250,000.

Earlier: Clinton postpones debt repayment

In an e-mail to supporters earlier Monday afternoon, Clinton says she “has something I want to say,” and directs readers to a Web video in which she says “Today, I still need your help.”

Text next the video reads: “By helping us pay off our campaign debt, you’re not just helping Hillary elect a Democratic president and grow our majority in Congress. You’re making it possible for her to work as hard as she can on the issues we care about.”

Clinton also continued to praise onetime rival Barack Obama, saying she knows the Illinois senator shares the same goals as she.

The Obama campaign is reportedly open to helping Clinton raise money to pay off her lingering campaign debt, though no agreement has been announced yet. Under campaign finance laws, the Obama campaign is not allowed to retire Clinton’s debt directly.

John McCain’s wife speaks…oh..no, no, I meant his FIRST wife…the one he left after she was in a near fatal car accident

June 11, 2008

Ted Sampley, who fought with US Special Forces in Vietnam and is now a leading campaigner for veterans’ rights, said: ‘I have been following John McCain’s career for nearly 20 years. I know him personally. There is something wrong with this guy and let me tell you what it is – deceit.

‘When he came home and saw that Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he started running around on her almost right away. Everybody around him knew it.

‘Eventually he met Cindy and she was young and beautiful and very wealthy. At that point McCain just dumped Carol for something he thought was better.

‘This is a guy who makes such a big deal about his character. He has no character. He is a fake. If there was any character in that first marriage, it all belonged to Carol.’

Clint Eastwood on Spike Lee-“A guy like him should shut his face.”

June 7, 2008

I love Clint Eastwood as actor and director….but also for how he doesn’t have to play nice when he doesn’t feel like it. Read a great interview with him here. Eastwood talks about controversy surrounding his movies as well as politics.

Spike Lee, director and professional whiner, ripped Eastwood for not having enough black soldiers in Eastwood’s movie, “Flags of Our Fathers.” Of course, the armed forces were far more segregated in WWII and there weren’t any black soldiers in the group that actually raised the flag at Iwo Jima

Eastwood has no time for Lee’s gripes. “He was complaining when I did Bird [the 1988 biopic of Charlie Parker]. Why would a white guy be doing that? I was the only guy who made it, that’s why. He could have gone ahead and made it. Instead he was making something else.” As for Flags of Our Fathers, he says, yes, there was a small detachment of black troops on Iwo Jima as a part of a munitions company, “but they didn’t raise the flag. The story is Flags of Our Fathers, the famous flag-raising picture, and they didn’t do that. If I go ahead and put an African-American actor in there, people’d go, ‘This guy’s lost his mind.’ I mean, it’s not accurate.”

And on politics…

But though he has been associated in the public mind with Republican viewpoints, he’s something of an individualist. “I don’t pay attention to either side,” he claims. “I mean, I’ve always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else’s hair. So I believe in that value of smaller government. Give politicians power and all of a sudden they’ll misuse it on ya.”
