It was quite a night last night. American Movie Channel (AMC) was broadcasting the “spagetti western” The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly. On cable and the networks the Democrats convened.
The Disco Democratic convention with shifting lights, and bathed in blue was less Brady Bunch, more Addams Family. Besides a mirrored disco ball the only other glittery ornament missing was John Edwards cradling a fatherless baby.
Naughty James Carville spoke for the few viewers of the Disco Democratic Convention: “If this party has a message, they did a hell of a job hiding it tonight.”
Carville is wrong. The Democrats are sending a message loud and clear with the Disco Democratic Convention. And the message ain’t pretty.
The Democratic message is that of a personality cult. After spending over a quarter of a billion dollars Barack Obama is still selling himself, not just his books. After spending well over 300 million dollars the American voter is still saying “keep the change”. Now the Democratic(?) Party has joined the cult and spending money on behalf of cult leader. 300 million dollars plus what the Democratic (?) Party is now spending and still it’s “no sale”. Americans know Obama is not qualified to be president and John McCain is taking full advantage of that reality.
The Democratic Disco convention is missing a mirror ball, John Edwards (with baby) and either John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever garb or perhaps the Studio 54 “cocaine spoon” swaying over the dancers. Absent that, they sent out Michelle.
Michelle Obama, wife of the cult leader, daughter of the corrupt Chicago machine, took to the stage last night in the $600 earrings she bought with the Bush tax rebate. Michelle gave a soul-less performance in her new “acceptable to the bitter and the clingy” guise.
Unfortunately for Michelle this election features Youtube. Some commentators have even dubbed this the “Youtube election” because it is the first presidential election ever in which Youtube has played a part or even existed. And we do remember Michelle pre make-over. Remember this Michelle, with pulled back hair, attempting to insult Hillary?
Then of course there is Michelle Obama, pre make-over, refusing to unite. The Michelle Obama we remember is the one who would not promise to endorse the winner of the nomination. Many Democrats will remember and identify and do as Michelle would do.
The made over Michelle and the made over Disco Democrats are like Obama, LOSERS.
The Gallup Daily Presidential Tracking Poll today:
McCain creeps ahead, 46% to 44%
Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Aug. 23-25, the first three-day period falling entirely after Obama’s Saturday morning vice presidential announcement, shows 46% of national registered voters backing John McCain and 44% supporting Obama, not appreciably different from the previous week’s standing for both candidates. This is the first time since Obama clinched the nomination in early June, though, that McCain has held any kind of advantage over Obama in Gallup Poll Daily tracking.
shows Barack Obama attracting 44% of the vote while John McCain also earns 44%. When “leaners” are included, it’s still tied with Obama at 46% and McCain at 46%. Yesterday, with leaners, Obama had a three-point advantage over McCain (see recent daily results). Tracking Polls are released at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Time each day.

Obama is supported by 78% of Democrats while McCain gets the vote from 85% of Republicans. The GOP hopeful also has a slight advantage among unaffiliated voters. [snip]
Obama’s support has declined in each of the last three individual nights of polling. This may be either statistical noise or a reaction to the selection of Biden. If it’s the latter, it probably has less to do with Biden than Hillary Clinton.
As Democrats prepare to commit suicide, Obama is attempting to silence opposition via intimidation.
Sen. Barack Obama has launched an all-out effort to block a Republican billionaire’s efforts to tie him to domestic and foreign terrorists in a wave of negative television ads.
Obama’s campaign has written the Department of Justice demanding a criminal investigation of the “American Issues Project,” the vehicle through which Dallas investor Harold Simmons is financing the advertisements. The Obama campaign — and tens of thousands of supporters — also is pressuring television networks and affiliates to reject the ads. The effort has met with some success: CNN and Fox News are not airing the attacks.[snip]
Bauer’s letter called on the Justice Department to open “an investigation of the American Issues Project; its officers and directors; and its anonymous donors, whoever they may be.”
“This is a sad ploy to circumvent the First Amendment by a campaign who has no arguments with the merits of our ad. It’s the classic maneuver: If you can’t win on the merits, file a lawsuit,” said a spokesman for the American Issues Project, Christian Pinkston, who said his group’s non-profit status allowed it to participate in elections as long as it does a majority of policy work, which it plans to do.[snip]
The Obama campaign plans to punish the stations that air the ad financially, an Obama aide said, organizing his supporters to target the stations that air it and their advertisers.
But the ad continues to air widely. Evan Tracey, who tracks campaign advertising at TNS Media Intelligence, said it has been broadcast 150 times in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Michigan. Federal Election Commission reports indicate that Simmons has spent more than $2.8 million buying ads.
The Obama intimidation letters are amusing. Imagine, only the Obama campaign expects “Justice” from the Bush “Justice” Department. It’s like expecting the truth and openness from the Obama campaign – a total joke.
Obama should long ago released his hidden papers. If American voters had the information necessary to make an honest decision about Obama the ads Obama tries to shut down would not have such impact. Obama should come clean. Obama should come clean about all his running mates, Rezko/Ayres/Wright.

Tonight Hillary will deliver The Goods. No doubt Hillary’s speech wil be brilliant. Her talk a celestial choir. But we will see The Bad and it will still be NObama, NOvember.
Chelsea Clinton will narrate a video which will introduce Hillary Clinton.
Hillary’s speech will take place on Women’s Equality Day. The events at the Disco Democrats convention will be an ugly joke to women. This 88th year of women finally able to vote reminds us that women are still being sent to the back of the bus. And that’s not Good, that’s Bad and Ugly.
