Cone of nonsense
Yesterday we blogged on the so-called "cone of silence" to shield John McCain from Obama's Q & A. It now appears that the McCain camp got caught with their hands in the cookie jar a/k/a cone of silence.(Who comes up with "cone of silence"?) While the good reverend was assuring America that he had "placed" McCain in the "cone" he did no such thing. He was not telling the truth. The media caught McCain in his limo while Barack was fielding the questions. Do you suppose the car had a radio?
Later they said he was in the limo part of the time and in a secure green room the rest of the time as if the "green" room could not receive calls on a cell phone; Blackberry text messages...you get it. They seem to have trouble telling the truth. (Remember the outline of a box under W's suit coat in his debate?)
More annoying than cheating with the Rev is the sappy "my friends" the surge "brought victory." Really? No agreement on elections, no agreement to have Iraq pay for the rebuilding, no reduction in troops. Some victory.
I miss The Cap Times. Catch this editorial in the Wisconsin State Journal: "Put the dog down." The WSJ editorial board takes a stand on something other than the "Frankenstein veto." Georgia? Pakistan? School funding? I'm not making this up. WSJ wants Igor, a 130 lb. mastiff euthanized for mauling a smaller dog. Wow. We need editorial guidance on dog behavior and how to deal with bad dogs? Perhaps WSJ could push for a Super max for the "worst of the worst" dogs.
Wonder why we are in trouble? The world consumes 86 million barrels of oil every day. I am eager to listen to Bill McKibben at Bob Fest. We had better do something. And, as McKibben urges, "step it up."
Vice President Biden? Sounds pretty good.
