Obama's Speech Day Forecast: Flawless Weather

By Garance Franke-Ruta
DENVER -- The weather out here in Denver is a welcome respite for those used to sweating away August in humid Washington, D.C.

Now, a good thing is predicted to get even better: tomorrow's weather forecast for Denver calls for a high of 82 degrees, with nary a cloud in the sky.

If God was going to answer prayers by making it rain tonight, wouldn't it be more dramatic if our human "forecast" was flawless ; )

How sad that you're reduced to being the WaPo's weathergirl. Let me suggest you ask your boss if you can do real reporting, such as asking the questions that Anne Kornblut et al are afraid to ask.

Hey Don! I am with you. But when will the 18,000,000 start spinning McCain's Bop-O-Meter at the real-time poll at Here is a funny post for you!

God, Rickie, hope you didn't soil yourself while writing your drivel. Now, why don't you go back home? It's the Labor Day weekend and visitors to your village will want to see its idiot in all his glory.

Here Puma Puma Puma:

Bill Clinton: "Last night Hillary told us in no uncertain terms that she is going to do everything she can to elect Barack Obama. That makes two of us. Actually, that makes 18 million of us."

I think Rick would benefit from this stupid pastors prayer who has been calling for rain in Obama's rally. Maybe that would stop the frothing in his mouth.

Rick (27 Aug 2K8 10:02pm) you utilized a lot of time out of your life to say NOTHING - from this point forward be conservative with the remaining time in your life.

Obama '08

Yayy! You guys got your boy in, yes, you got your nomination, yes, you got your "win"... you guys all got your "Big-First" everything, but when are you guys going to get it...when Obama wins anything, it has and carries all the importance of letting loose, a quiet, stiff, fart in the wind, to most people now a days. After CNN and MSNBC tried everything to help push this guy through as the "cause celeb" (be careful, or I might faint while I write this). You guys that are all still trying to push Obama like, you just don't get it and realize that...THE GUY'S BORING! Nobody Cares! The Clinton's came off as the real winners tonight and people love them all the more for their toughness, tenacity and regular-folk lovableness. Obama has and always will come off as aloof and arrogant and out of touch, after coming out of the tough ends of Hawaii and Harvard University. Obama just "looks" the part of "different but, regular", in order to relate superficially as "everyday folks, WHO HAPPEN TO BE BLACK", but' the Clinton's actually "Are" some how, more down to Earth, regular and "Black-er" than Obama could ever be. After this whole thing in Denver, all the Clinton's stuff made it seem like these past couple of days there should be re-named, "The Clinton Convention". This guy's not getting my vote, I'll either vote McCain, not vote at all, or write her name into the ballot. CNN, MSNBC and Headline News, must be getting "wet" over, "Their and Obama's "win". I hear that they might even have "Obama-Girl" come out and sing for Keith Obermyer, tonight, too! PLEASE!

I wonder what that stupid pastor who is praying for rain in Denver tomorrow is going to do now that he has been spurned by God :-)
