Good luck with that you slimy losers. Crawl back under the rocks you crawled out of in 1994

Meanwhile, I'm sure there would be massive outrage from the right if anybody dared to put any scrutiny on McCain's military record.

that shouldn't protect against defamation.

Douches get away with too much crap here in America under the guise of the First Amendment, i really wish people would hold them to better account.

There would be massive outrage from me, and I'm far from the right. When you question one person's service, you question every person's service.

How about trying to make a case FOR McCain?

Oh yeah, that's right, you really can't make much of a case for him so try bringing the other guy down instead.

I could honestly care less. Slander all you want, I doubt you'll do a better job than Hillary did. With the way Sen. Obama deals with these attacks the attacker comes out more dirty than anything else. So sling your arrows all you like.

/see you in November

A noble sentiment. If only the publisher in question shared those kind of ethics.

Jaboobinator: I thought there weren't going to be any 527 groups this year.

that's the beauty of the route they're taking . By using Ann Coulter's publisher they get to run a 400 page attack on Obama that doesn't count as a in-kind campaign contribution

I can't wait for him to win and shiat like this and Fox News get shoved to the fringes and Fox gets like classified as entertainment liked the world wrestling federation was made to.

NY Times V. Sullivan
makes slander and libel cases against public figures nearly impossible to win. The Justices felt that was a small price to pay for have a free press. So if lawsuits are off the table the only effective disinfectant to this crap is counter-speech and lots of it.

not entirely. You can't tell me that people look at Purple Hearts with a lot less respect since the right decided to tee off on Kerry's and question how he got them (conveniently ignoring his bronze and silver stars-which was the point)

You know what's icky is that this publisher will buy up tons of copies themselves just to guarantee it's a "bestseller".

Well, there's lots of icky here, but that's just a little.

it's even ickier because they also screw over thier authors royally.

Most authors don't read the fine print carefully , and don't realize that when a copy of their book sells in book stores they get $3-4 BUT when Regnery buys up their books in bulk and then pushes them out via thier "Conservative Book Club" or throws them in free for subscribing to things like CNS, then the author gets about $0.10 per copy.

So yes, they write a "best seller" but no they don't see any significant money from having done so .

Yeah...I don't feel too badly for the author of this slop. If they didn't have the "Conservative book club", they'd be lucky to sell a copy to their mom.

It works for the liberals!

Good for the Republicans for taking the high road. *gag* Good thing McCain pledged to take the high road. *vomit*

If they haven't learned by now what happens when you attack Obama, they'll never learn. To borrow an already overused phrase, he's the Teflon Dem. He's too savvy a politician.

But squirm all you want, it won't make McCain any stronger.

Actually, no, it doesn't. If it did, we'd be talking about Kerry's re-election campaign.

Looks like the outrage would be about the same. I hate the "If the Left/Right did what the Right/Left does, it would be considered _______." It's the same. It's all the farkin same.

I think the sentiment is a sound one: by making John Kerry's combat service "fair game" for a smear campaign the Republicans degraded combat service to the level of the same tacky shiat as Reverend Wright, flag pins, and the myriad other side-show issues that compete for our attention during a national election.

Their conduct was disgraceful and they would never have tolerated similar attacks from a Democrat on a Republican. It was, however, emblematic of the total moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the current incarnation of the Republican party. I agree with blackminded- bring your tired old tactics and see what happens. It didn't serve Hillary too well and there is no reason to think it will help McCain. The only people who are going to care are those who wouldn't vote for Obama anyway...

Oh, we've heard all this garbage before. Indonesia! Madrassa! Secret Muslimy thoughts! Whatever, bring it on.
 
2008-06-23 01:50:27 PM  
How dare they actually CRITICIZE St. Barack!

Unfortunately for the Obama campaign, we don't live in Kenya, where Obama's cousin Odinga has people killed for speaking out against him.

Let's see if Obama can explain why he was listed as a Muslim in Indonesia, and why he falsely said that he was never a Muslim

Meanwhile, I'm sure such a book is likely to appear before too long, and it will be hailed by you Democrats as definitive proof as to why McCain shouldn't be president.

Afterall, you guys (maybe not you specifically) have continually been selling the, "McCain sold war secrets in exchange for soft treatment as a P.O.W."

Shameful.

Nah, I just wonder why he stays married to that trollopy coont he married one month after he dumped his injured wife. Seems like a serious lack of judgment on his part.

One day he might get real mad at her and declare nuclear war on her ass.

Sir Roderick Glossop: Everyone, please ignore this well-known troll who uses multiple alts.

The only trolling that goes on around me is people trolling me and making up stuff about me. I don't use multiple usernames either.

So, wonder if the Obamacrats are going to try hiding these books so people can't find them in the bookstores.
 
2008-06-23 02:14:07 PM  
Do you think that they could get the movie out before the end of his first term?

I don't read as much as I used to and could really use a good comedy right now

Pardon me for missing the err..boat, but what was the history on those "swift boat" people, and what's a 527?

It's good to spread lies about McCain, his POW days, and claim he called his wife horrible things.

It's bad to mention Obama's middle name.

Duh.

Great photoshop too.
 
2008-06-23 02:15:57 PM  
How is Obama even in the running still?

Back in 04 when people were all up ons him about running for president, he said himself "I won't be running for president in 08 because I won't have enough experience to take on that role. I'm not ruling out a 2012 run, however :wink:"
 
2008-06-23 02:15:58 PM  
Regnery Press - basically a vanity press for NeoCon a**holes.

Just about everything they print should be printed on rolls of long, thin paper - to give it some practical value.

why is the non-republican always "The media's favorite candidate?"...?

/in other words, why do republicans always think the media is against them?

Big freaking surprise. Lying is the only thing that American Conservatives do with any... oh what's the word.... competence? Vigor? Consistency?

It's your own idiotic fault for believing them, rethuglican morons.

I want to believe you're right, man. But then I check my e-mail inbox and it's flooded with forwards from my sisters about terrorist fist jabbin' whitey-hatin' Barck HUSSEIN Obama! -- and I feel depressed about the future.

Dude, I have yet to hear of any such allegations in the MSM. Furthermore, as a financial and ideological supporter of Obama I would absolutely protest anything short of an angry denouncement of such sentiments from Obama's camp...

So...actual smear campaign against Obama out. Your response is "I'm sure you guys will do it too!"

Shameful?

Captain Obvious: "I won't be running for president in 08 because I won't have enough experience to take on that role."

Now that's a money quote.

McCain has over 25 years of experience in getting things done. Obama hasn't done a thing in the US Senate.
