CHOO-CHOO! Here comes Obama to run over your baby!
-Headline of the day-
"Obama Will Let Your Baby Get Run Over By a Train."
A mailer sent out by the Susan B. Anthony List suggests that presidential candidate Barack Obama wouldn't save your baby if you leave it on the train tracks. So don' t do that. Because he won't. He probably won't even be around.
The SBAL argues that since pro-choice Barack Obama voted against anti-abortion legislation, he hates babies and wants to see them hit by trains -- or something. A PDF of the mailer is here.
You know, this doesn't do a lot to dispel that whole idea that the pro-life movement is made up of a bunch of frootloops. (Right Wing Watch)
-Please, think of the children!-
The American electorate, totally ignoring Barack Obama's locomotive infanticidal tendencies, seems to be breaking for the Democrat. Gallup's daily tracking shows Obama up 8% among those the pollster calls "traditional likely voters." According to Gallup, this represents "his largest margin to date using this historical Gallup Poll voter model."
Meanwhile, McCain's support among that same demo dropped four points -- from 47% to 43%. Among all registered voters, Obama leads 52% to 41%.
It's beginning to look like the next four years won't be a good time to leave your baby unattended on the railroad tracks. And so, another great American tradition quietly dies. (Gallup)
-Quote of the day-
"I've not been convicted yet. There's not a black mark by my name yet, until the appeal is over and I am finally convicted, if that happens. If that happens, of course I'll do what's right for Alaska and for the Senate ... I don't anticipate it happening, and until it happens I do not have a black mark." --Convicted Alaska Senator Ted Stevens
Hey Pokie, you're appealing the conviction. People who haven't been convicted don't generally file appeals. Someone want to get Shakespeare here a dictionary? He doesn't seem to have a reall good grasp on the language.
In related news, don't leave your baby drifting in a canoe toward a waterfall, because Ted won't swim out and save it. He's like a thousand years old. (Oxdown Gazette)
