In other words, McCain lost

Posted By on Thu, Oct 16, 2008 at 1:59 PM

The Huckster gives his opinion on the debate last night:

My perspective is this. If this were a bowling match, Senator McCain needed a strike. He left a seven and 10 pins, and while it's a hard pick up, it's not impossible.

And here is what I would tell you about Senator McCain, and I have debated him. Don't ever count this guy out. He didn't have the kind of performance tonight where everybody goes, oh, wow, that did it. But what he did was to stay in the game, and for him, he has a remarkable capacity to surprise people at the end.

Huck also bragged about having Joe the Plumber on his talk show Saturday. By then, perhaps, we'll have answers to questions about the nature of Joe's business and whether it would really be affected  by the Obama tax plan; why he doesn't have a plumbing license and whether he's run afoul of voter registration procedures; whether he's a tax deadbeat; whether he's related to the infamous Charles Keating; and undoubtedly more about McCain's little fairy tale. The Huckster may regret this guest before the vetting is over. Joe is already complaining that the discussion should be about issues and not him. Maybe he should have thought about that before the little media stunt this week that thrust him into the limelight. NY Times summarizes.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
