McCain Mixes Up His Phillies

By Juliet Eilperin
NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio -- Sometimes when you're on the road a lot, it's hard to remember where you are.

Perhaps that's why GOP presidential nominee John McCain, in an afternoon rally today here in Quaker Stadium, referred to "the kind of momentum and enthusiasm we've seen here in North Philadelphia."

McCain quickly corrected himself, saying: "New Philadelphia. North Philadelphia is part of a big city. New Philadelphia is the heartland of America."

McCain still hopes to win in Pennsylvania -- but not by boosting turnout in its urban centers.

it's ok if mac shows some wear and tear from the trail. everybody knows the presidency isn't that physically or mentally demanding... i'm sure he'll be, as larry eagleburger would say, "adequate". what's to worry?

McCain is really tired or getting old because he's been making a lot of mistakes by forgetting or misremembering facts, such as trying to recall his endorsements on Meet The Press, and the difference between the Phillies and Pirates. But this one takes the cake.

In this one, McCain forgets who he is trying to insult:

Real Estate Dictionary: Public Housing
Government-owned housing units made available to low-income individuals and families at no cost or for nominal rental rates.

From the Huffington Post-
Zeituni Onyango (Obama's aunt)
Volunteer Resident Health Advoca
Boston Housing Authority Updated
Q3/2008
Barack Obama
$260 81 ORTON MAROTTA WAY
South Boston MA

*********************

So, our tax dollars have been subsidizing Obama's aunt's housing for the past 5 years, while she is living here Illegally AND DONATING $260 to her nephew's campaign!

AND Obama's now chastising people who don't trust him to share our income judiciously!

You know, border states are very concerned about illegal immigration, as are some states that border border states...

Associated Press
AP poll: 1 in 7 voters still persuadable
By ALAN FRAM 10.31.08, 9:19 AM ET

WASHINGTON - Patrick Campbell worries Barack Obama will raise his taxes but thinks John McCain will send people off to war. He says that leaves him leaning toward Obama ... maybe.

"I'm split right down the middle," said the 50-year-old Air Force Reserve technician from Amherst, N.Y. "Each one has things that are good for me and things that are bad for me. And people like me."

With the sand in the 2008 campaign hourglass about depleted, Campbell is part of a stubborn wedge of people who, somehow, are still making up their minds about who should be president. One in seven, or 14 percent, can't decide, or back a candidate but might switch, according to an Associated Press-Yahoo (nasdaq: YHOO - news - people ) News poll of likely voters released Friday.

KEEP THROWING PROMcCAIN REPORTERS OFF THE PLANE OBAMA REPLACING THEM WITH JET AND ESSENCE MAGAZINE WRITERS- YOU'RE LETTING AMERICA SEE YOUR TRUE AUTHORITARIAN SIDE A FEW DAYS TOO SOON: Fairness Doctrine comes next - cut off conservative radio- like you cut off that tv station in Orlando-

YOU'RE WORSE THAN BUSH- HE DIDN'T TRY TO CUT OFF MSNBC! and 1 IN 7 ARE DECIDING...

And Obama never once heard his Reverend of 20 years utter a disparaging word about the US. I know there is a video of Obama standing in Trinity Union "Church", nodding in agreement while the Rev. spews his message of hate.

"Just got a message that my post is being "held for approval by the blog owner.""

scriv, you likely hit a filter designed to keep off-color comments out of the comment sections. The last time I received that message, I was making a joke about somebody's trousers being around that joint between their legs and their feet.

Frankly, I was a bit impressed that they caught the phrase, although disappointed because it was funny rather than off-color.

HAHAHA!!!


I hear that the GOPer party leaders are meeting next week to figure out how to fix the sewer hole that they call the Republican party...

Seems like, every forty years, the GOP is found out to be the bunch of immoral corporate shills that they are - and they take a beating in the voting booth. Then, they re-emerge by finding new ways to suck in the dumb voters (pro-guns, anti-abortion, evangelicals, tax cuts for the rich etc...), and they run with it - until they are found out again.


It will be interesting to see how they will "fix" their party this time.

And North Philadelphia can't be the heartland of America? Real America? Of course not. Real America, America's Heartland, is white, small town, and Christian (thanks, Libby Dole).

When was the last time McCain was ever in an inner city neighborhood?

Give me a break.

WHO IS CENSORING WAPO POLITICAL BLOGS??

Just got a message that my post is being "held for approval by the blog owner."

This, I don't believe, is coming from WaPo.

So consider this:

TRAIL/FIX POSTERS, BEWARE: IS BIG BROTHER HACKING YOU?

http://www.nowpublic.com/world/parallel-internet-big-brother-screening-censoring-political-blogs OR (if the link becomes disabled)
members.nowpublic.com/scrivener re: "The Parallel Internet..."

p.s. If links don't work, please contact nowpublic.com site administrators via their "contact" page or a post to another nowpublic.com blog.

The voters will put John McCain out of his misery on Tuesday. Take a nap, Grandpa. When you wake up you'll be living in the 21st century.

There is something about New Philadelphia that confuses politicians. Obama made an error in naming the town when he was there earlier in the campaign.

There is no need to make an inane comment, MarkinAustin, we know how ordinary your thinking is.
