Sarah Palin '12

ABC News:
In an interview with ABC News' Elizabeth Vargas, the Republican vice-presidential nominee was asked about 2012, whether she was discouraged by the daily attacks on the campaign trail, and would instead pack it in and return to her home state of Alaska.

"I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken, that would bring this whole … I'm not doing this for naught," Palin said.
Can we possibly be this lucky?

Only in America ...

Move over, Sanjaya, and tell William Hung the news: Joe the Plumber is being pursued for a major record deal and could come out with a country album as early as Inauguration Day.

“Joe” — aka Samuel Wurzelbacher, a Holland, Ohio, pipe-and-toilet man — just signed with a Nashville public relations and management firm to handle interview requests and media appearances, as well as create new career opportunities, including a shift out of the plumbing trade into stage and studio performances.

By the time I get to Arizona

If Barack Obama does one more campaign swing out West before election day, he should really consider doing a rally in Phoenix, Arizona.

Quote of the Day

Barack Obama:
"I’m sorry to see my opponent sink so low. Lately, he’s called me a socialist for wanting to roll back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans so we can finally give tax relief to the middle class. By the end of the week, he’ll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in Kindergarten,"

Obama: His Choice

Mitt Romney: Obama Presidency 'Very Real Possibility'

Add Mitt Romney to the long list of Republicans who think GOP presidential candidate Jon McCain is going to lose. In a fundraising email for Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney predicts a victory for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is imminent.
His opponent was handpicked by Chuck Schumer and will be a reliable vote for the Democrats. And as we face the very real possibility of an Obama presidency, that's the last thing we need.

It's more critical than ever that we have a strong Republican leader to act as a "firewall" against bad legislation, tax increases, and increased spending.
The NRSC is once again echoing Mitt Romney's statement with an ad for Republican Senator Gordon Smith. While the NRSC and Mitt Romney are trying to scare people into voting for GOP senate candidates, John McCain is trying to scare people to vote for him because GOP senate candidates are going to lose.
"Republicans launch new campaign theme: All the rest of us are gonna lose, so elect me."

Steve Benen:
The McCain/Palin ticket is the first in American history in which both candidates were found to have violated ethics standards before a national election.

2008: McCain vs. Obama

This is my dream map of an Obama victory over Republican John McCain.

We might not even have to wait in till the West election results to come in to declare Senator Obama as the next President. If Obama wins Florida, or Virginia or North Carolina, or Ohio it is going to be next impossible for McCain to win. The Republican candidate would have to hold on to the rest of the Bush states and win at least two states in the Midwest, which is an Obama stronghold.

Currently polling is moving Indiana, Missouri and Clinton loving West Virginia in to the toss-up category. Basically, what I’m trying to say that McCain/Palin are fucked.

Joe Biden:
All of the things they said about Barack Obama in the TV, on the TV, at their rallies, and now on Youtube and everything else,” Biden said — referring to McCain and Palin tying Obama to Weatherman bomber Bill Ayers and accusing him of “palling around with terrorists.”

“John McCain could not bring himself to look Barack Obama in the eye and say the same things to him,” he said to cheers. “In my neighborhood, you got something to say to a guy, you look him in the eye and you say it to him.“
