The strong case against McCain/Palin comes from some of our greatest minds.
The latest headlines of the Picayune Intelligence newspaper reminds us of why we should not vote for Governor Sarah Palin.
Allegations made in certain election advertisements have also made a very powerful case against McCain/Palin.
However all these efforts are falling short. There are reasons to revile the Alaska governor which have yet to be employed by our intellectual elites, the “creative class” of brilliant bloggers, and the high quality talent at the Obama campaign.
For us, the strongest case against Governor Sarah Palin is her killing and eating of BJM family members and utter disregard of our hero Bullwinkle J. Moose. It’s time to expose Governor Palin’s Moose Abuse.
It is important for the “creative class” bloggers, Big Media, the Washington D.C. fingerbowl set, Obama campaign office MSNBC, and the official Obama campaign in Chicago to seize hold of the Bullwinkle issue. Nothing else will work.
The situation is dire. Obama must seize the Moose Abuse issue or he will lose big.

How bad is it for Obama?
It’s real bad for Obama. More Americans know (a) Governor Sarah Palin is “experienced” than think Obama is qualified in that respect, (b) think Palin should have run for VP, and (c) reject the McCain=Bush argument Obama is staking his candidacy on.
An overwhelming advantage in experience and lopsided support from working-class and suburban whites have lifted Republican John McCain to a slender lead over Barack Obama less than two months from Election Day, a poll on the presidential race said Friday. [snip]
The poll suggests that perceived inexperience is more of a problem at the top of the Democratic ticket than in the No. 2 spot for Republicans.
Eighty percent say McCain, with nearly three decades in Congress, has the right experience to be president. Just 46 percent say Obama, now in his fourth year in the Senate, is experienced enough.
Fully 47 percent say Obama lacks the proper experience — an even worse reading than the 36 percent who had the same criticism about McCain running mate Sarah Palin, serving her second year as Alaska governor after being a small-town mayor.
“This is his fourth year in the Senate, and two of those four years he spent campaigning for president,” said Arthur Koch, 63, an undecided voter from Wallington, N.J. “I’m not too comfortable with that.” [snip]
Seven in 10 said Palin made the right decision in becoming McCain’s running mate, despite the demands of a family whose five children include a pregnant, unmarried teenage daughter and an infant with Down syndrome. Men were slightly likelier than women to back her choice, and even Obama supporters were split closely over whether she did the proper thing. [snip]
The poll finds that despite Democratic attempts to tie McCain to the profoundly unpopular Bush, half say they believe the Arizonan would chart a different course — including a slight majority of independents, a pivotal bloc of voters.
In must win southern Ohio 64% think Obama does not have the experience to be President.
Experienced Governor Palin yesterday survived the type of grilling from ABC News that Obama was protected from for most of his presidential run. Governor Palin while tentative and wary of traps, did well. Governor Palin is “likeable enough.” Governor Palin acknowledged those who came before her.
How bad is it for inexperienced, unqualified Obama?
In true blue big Democratic New Jersey (Hillary won the New Jersey primary) Obama is in trouble. The race in New Jersey is Obama 48%, McCain 45% – a 3% spread – it’s trouble in the Garden State according to the New Jersey expert Marist poll.
True Blue Washington State is sliding away from Obama too. It’s a bare bones +2 for Obama there.
McCain is also continuing to be ahead in Nevada (Hillary won Nevada’s caucus) according to a Rasmussen poll out today. McCain continues to lock up western states. Obama had promised the Hopium eaters he could win western states – it was either a lie or a delusion.
The latest polls in must win Ohio (surprise! Hillary won the Ohio primary too) have McCain in the lead.
So bad is the Ohio situation that the normally astute Paul Hackett is advising the Obama campaign to panic big time. Obama will lose Ohio writes the Marine Reservist and former Democratic congressional candidate. Writing on an odious kook filled DailyKooks (warning: link is to DailyKooks) Paul Hackett provided some panic filled odious hate to counteract the coming Obama Ohio defeat:
The message is simple and the professionals can refine it but essentially it should contain these elements:
“Sarah Palin? Can’t keep her solemn oath of devotion to her husband and had sex with his employee. Sarah Palin? Accidentally got pregnant at age 43 and the tax payers of Alaska have to pay for the care of her disabled child. Sarah Palin? Unable to teach her 16 year old daughter right from wrong and now another teenager is pregnant. Sarah Palin? Can you trust Sarah Palin and her values with America’s future? John McCain? Divorced from his first wife one month and marries a billionaire influence peddler and convicted felon. John McCain, a record of rash and impulsive decisions. That’s not change that’s more of the same.”
Like it or not the path to the White House requires paying the Ohio Toll, and traipsing around Columbus or Cleveland and preaching to the converted is no substitute, and for that matter nor is duck hunting with Governor Strickland; See John Kerry, 2004.
It must be very bad when someone as smart as Paul Hackett provides such deranged advice.
The bad news for Obama is unhinging many Obama supporters. Compare (from a pro-Obama site) the electoral vote map today which shows McCain ahead and winning the presidency, with the same electoral map from four years ago today to see how dire the situation is for Obama and why Obama supporters are growing even more unhinged. McCain is solidifying his red states and Obama is weakening in blue states.

Obama promises to counterattack against McCain, to fight back. But as usual with Obama, it’s just words:
If Democrats were expecting a dramatic change in words, tone or temperament, they did not get it. While McCain attacked him as a pampered, fading celebrity, a sexist and a desperate bully, Obama stuck to familiar themes linking the senator from Arizona to Bush and Washington lobbyists.
Even after being prodded by the audience in Dover, Obama appeared reluctant to get too aggressive. Glenn Grasso, 39, a doctoral student, pleaded: “When and how are you going to start fighting back?”
Obama responded by calling McCain’s ads “just fabricated” and “just made up,” an answer that spurred some to shout out: “Lies.”
“Lies, that’s the word,” Obama said.
From Obama more empty words and unfulfilled promises.
Obama did keep his dirty promise in one respect. Obama launched a vile advertisement:
Using jaunty, humorous music, a picture of a younger McCain with shaggy hair and the hint of sideburns, and images of massive, antiquated cellphones and a Rubik’s Cube, the ad is the clearest evocation yet of McCain’s age. The Republican turned 72 late last month.
“He admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send e-mail. Still doesn’t understand the economy, and favors $200 billion in new tax cuts for corporations, but almost nothing for the middle class. . . . After one president who was out of touch,” it concludes, “we just can’t afford more of the same.” The Obama campaign said the ad would be aired nationally on cable and on other outlets in swing states.
The ugly Obama attack advertisment against McCain (view HERE) was not well researched, we presume. In March 2000 the Boston Globe in a profile of John McCain explained why McCain cannot send emails or type on a keyboard:
McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan – Ted Williams is his hero – but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.
That’s right Obama, John McCain cannot send emails because of his war injuries.
John McCain also “gets emotional” regarding military families. John McCain was “emotional” at the September 11, 2008 World Trade Center memorial services.
McCain appeared reflective and cared about laying down flowers at the sad ceremony. Obama? Obama (Michelle was too busy to attend) thought he was having a cigarette, slurping some “Thunderbird”, and pitching pennies.
Obama is a walking insult to Americans. Only those of picayune intelligence will vote for inexperienced, unqualified Obama.
