Beware the (Political) Browser

It's six weeks -- to the day! -- until the Nov. 4 election.

With the end so near, washingtonpost.com and the Post are, literally, going all out to bring you the best coverage of the election out there.

The latest addition to our political posse -- and, be sure, our posse rolls deep -- is the Political Browser, an aggregator of the best political stories, videos and miscellany of the day. Ben Pershing, he of Capitol Briefing fame/infamy, and Post.com producer extraordinaire John Amick are the men behind the curtain; Ben also is penning a regularly updated "Takeaway" on the Browser in which he boils down the news you need to know multiple times a day.

Add it to your bookmarks for the final 42 days to stay up on the latest and greatest political news moving through the tubes.

The Major Cause Of The Wall Street Crisis Is Affirmative Action

.


.



Clearly a MAJOR CAUSE of the Wall Street crisis is that they have NOT been selecting the best people to run the Wall Street firms.


The liberals have been pressing through these affirmative action programs at the Wall Street Firms and MBA Schools.


Wall Street has a third-rate team on the field - they have a bunch of sheep who owe their loyalty not to their own merit and brains but to the affirmative action programs which gave them their outsized salaries ABOVE MORE QUALIFIED CANDIDATES WHO COULD ACTUALLY DO THE JOB.

Instead Wall Street has HIRED A THIRD-RATE STAFF which goes along with the program.

The Smart A-List people have been pushed aside by the liberals who DO NOT CARE IF THE WORK IS GETTING DONE PROPERLY, rather they believe they have won when then have diversity and who cares if the balance sheet is a mess. LET'S BE CLEAR HERE THE NEW YORK LIBERALS ARE A MAJOR CAUSE OF THE WALL STREET CRISIS AND MESSING UP OUR REAL ESTATE MARKET AND THE FINANCIAL MARKETS.


Angry Liberals.


The Liberals took control of the MBA Admissions Boards of the top MBA Business Schools in the early 90s - they started admitting THIRD-RATE PEOPLE TO GO TO MBA SCHOOL.

Then the Wall Street firms followed suit - throwing MERIT-BASED CRITERIA aside - the deciding factor became the color of one's skin - IF YOU WERE A WHITE MALE FROM THE SUBURBS YOU WERE IN A CATEGORY WHICH HAD DRAMATICALLY MORE DIFFICULT STANDARDS FOR PROMOTIONS AND HIRING.


THIS WAS ALWAYS A DISASTER WAITING TO HAPPEN.


WALL STREET HAS A THIRD-RATE TEAM ON THE FIELD WHICH HAS GONE ALONG WITH THE CROOKS FOR YEARS.


THE FIRST-RATE TEAM WAS THERE ATTEMPTING TO GET IN THE DOOR HOWEVER THE NEW YORK LIBERALS TURNED THEM AWAY.


THE FIRST-RATE TEAM WOULD HAVE EASILY AVERTED THIS CRISIS.


SO WHAT DO WE DO NOW? PUT ANOTHER AFFIRMATIVE ACTION GUY IN CHARGE OF THE ECONOMY?


MCCAIN HAS THE EXPERIENCE AND MILITARY BACKGROUND TO FIGHT THE WALL STREET LOBBYISTS, SET THE WALL STREET BROKERS STRAIGHT, STOP THE OUTSIZED COMPENSATION PACKAGES AND PLACE THE AMERICAN ECONOMY ON THE RIGHT TRACK TO BEING STRONG AGAIN.

"What is the definition of insane: Doing the same thing over and, over again and expecting a different result."

You mean like voting for someone with only a few years of experience in statewide office and no major accomplishments -- someone who, despite a narrowly partisan record, claims to be able to unify the country (in other words a uniter, and not a divider) and expecting him to be different from the last guy who ran as such and won (in 2000)?

What is the definition of insane: Doing the same thing over and, over again and expecting a different result. But you get the same results, that is a vote for McCain is a vote for the insane, that is you D.A. Republicans.

HOOVER The best thing to do is to place a steady hand at the helm right now.


This is no time to put an inexperienced affirmative action guy in charge of the economy. The only business or economic experience Obama has is buying cocaine.

This is a time for a military leader - one who understands that we have to fight the lobbyists in Washington and do what is right to forge a strong economy - that man is John McCain.

For THE POLITICAL BROWSER. Palin meets President Alvaro Uribe of Colombia today.

PALIN: "It's an honor to meet you Mr Presiden-tay. I just love Taco Bell and my Track and my Todd can't get enough of that thing Track calls 'Fish-Scale Rock' that comes from your great country, Spain."

URIBE: "Que va? Largate, bruja!"

REMEMBER SPIRO AGNEW?

Am I the only one who sees what is going on here with Palin? We all know she has no qualifications and she was just picked as window dressing and as a stooge to say what ever they put in her mouth. No candidate in their right mind would really want her on their ticket. This is what I think will happen and may already be secretly in the plan.

If Mccain manages to get elected, they will get rid of Palin as soon as they can, using all of the scandal surrounding her as the reason. There is already information of drug use by her son and both daughters and Enquirer has eluded to something coming out about Palin and her husband are regular drug users. Once rid of her, Mcain then will put in Lieberman like he wanted to all along and that is how it will play out. Once the election is over they will not do anything to protect her anymore. Her taxes will come out, probably not very clean, as well as every scandal they are trying to squash now. Then they will make her resign or just get rid of her.


=======
It's going to be peeeuuu Palin in charge anyway.

Anyone who has been paying attention this week knows that the POW stint John served has added another ten years to his life.

It's obvious that he is in the first throws of dementia.
Why?

Last week the knife of the lies created by McCaints woeful campaign has been used placed in by the words of McCaint himself

"The "fundamentals" of our economy is strong" on Tuesday and "in a depression" on Friday; Support our alies on Monday, rattle the sword against Spain on Wednesday; don't bail out AIG on tuesday, bail them out on Wednesday; fire the head of the Federal Election Commission?; the fish love our oil rigs? and feeling comfortable with dishonesty.

I give him about a year until full senility sets in.

Then he will abdicate to peeeuuu Palin.

So get ready for her to be wearing a US flag dress carrying a 6ft cross and NRA militias leading you at gun point to Church on Sundays so we can all learn to speak in tongues.

Don't believe me?

She already told us last week it's the Palin/McCain ticket!

...Now if that is not a freudian slip....

"Thanks but no thanks to the lies from nowhere......."

Chris:

As much as I appreciate your sagacity in matters of the horse race I think it's a little presumptuous to suggest anyone will tell us what we need to know.

Just a quick question, how does Govenor Palin meeting with World Leaders, comply with the Logan Act.
Her last talks with Georgia and her veiws Palin said Russia's attack into Georgia last month was 'unprovoked'. ...
Will she be giving insight?
To McCain plans
All I hope is that she remembers that our lives are in the hands of one Commander In Chief at a time.
But again put my thoughts aside, How did she get around the Logan Act?

Finally, a leading conservative columnist tells the emperor that he has no clothes.

Thank you, George Will, for having the courage to speak truth and look out for the best interests of our country.

Chris:

Do you know if this is true or not, or could you find out? (Cut and pasted from a e-mail below)

"The story is all over Progressive Talk Radio today about the MCain campaign sending absentee ballot applications to registered democrats or people that have donated to Obama's camapign. These ballots are deliberately misleading and have postage paid return addresses that are for an election clerk that is outside of your city or town. What this will end up doing is either having your vote not counted, or if you return one of these, they will cite you for election fraud, saying that you already voted absentee.These ballots are only being sent out in 'purple states' and this is a big deal. This is called voter caging."

Thanks!

As far as the government bailing out wall street and the people, I don't have a problem with it, because they have more funds then the both mentioned above. Restrospectively speaking, a lot of financial lost was incorporated in the way the job market have declined and to no avail have the problem been addressed to properly accommodate it's concerns. Jobs shipped out, high job loss, declining attributes to accommodate our declining economy, survival of the fitness and plain out nothing to work with period. No money, no jobs, only bills with an increased tag attached to them. How can one bail one bail he/she selves out of anything with nothing to work with except no jobs and escalating bills. Come on people, we are fighting an uphill battle with no legs or means.
