Metamucil?

crushed Viagra cause he needs to get a firm lead.

Viagra?
 
2008-08-21 06:03:37 PM  
Waffle mix?
 
2008-08-21 06:03:41 PM  
It's just some powdered Ensure.
 
2008-08-21 06:04:04 PM  
Well if McCain handled the envelope it probably is just him turning into dust and he got a little of himself on it.
 
2008-08-21 06:04:05 PM  
Crushed Tums?

Dang you! One second late to the party.

It's the turrists!
 
2008-08-21 06:04:30 PM  
It's OK, he was a POW.
 
2008-08-21 06:04:30 PM  
Has anyone heard from Obama's coke dealer? He might sent the package to the wrong presidential campaign office.
 
2008-08-21 06:04:55 PM  
Levodopa?
 
2008-08-21 06:05:22 PM  
Unpossible. They caught the anthrax killer right after he killed himself.

Most likely it was just some goofballs Cindy mailed ahead to herself. They got crushed in the mail.
 
2008-08-21 06:05:26 PM  
El Dopa?
 
2008-08-21 06:05:27 PM  
Leave it to Democrats to try and kill through terrorism what they cannot beat legitimately.

What's the over-under on this being Obama's near dear friend William Ayers?
 
2008-08-21 06:05:57 PM  
Strange...I would have though pure powdered BS would be a different color.
 
2008-08-21 06:06:27 PM  
A gift from Mr Putin?
 
2008-08-21 06:06:42 PM  
DUST
He's so old he shiats dust!
 
2008-08-21 06:06:46 PM  
Reminds me of the story of how Karl Rove's office was "bugged" before the Texas gubernatorial election in 1986. Turned out all evidence pointed to him doing it himself
 
2008-08-21 06:06:54 PM  
Is it powdered milk?
 
2008-08-21 06:07:21 PM  
I wouldn't worry.

With the last couple of days it's safe to assume McCain won't remember this tomorrow.
 
2008-08-21 06:07:26 PM  
How convenient.

Anyone check to see if the return address was one of McCain's seven houses?
 
2008-08-21 06:07:28 PM  

QUICKSlLVER: Leave it to Democrats to try and kill through terrorism what they cannot beat legitimately.


Yes, it's absolutely a Democrat. Couldn't have been a conservative who is bitter that McCain got the nomination. Couldn't have been a disturbed McCain supporter who figured that sending powder to a McCain campaign office would make Obama look bad. Must have been a Democrat. No doubt about that, it's dead certain.

Columbian Marching Powder?

Shrugging Atlas: Anyone check to see if the return address was one of McCain's seven houses?


Ten is what I saw reported earlier, IIRC.
 
2008-08-21 06:08:38 PM  
Seconds after receiving the powder, an unnamed guard appeared, shot McCain a stern, yet forgiving look, and a drew a cross in the powder with the barrel of his rifle.

With a flick of his foot, the image was erased and the guard returned to patrolling.
 
2008-08-21 06:08:55 PM  
Headline should have read...
receives and envelope full of white POWder
 
2008-08-21 06:09:27 PM  
Not really as threatening when the guy who sent the original Anthrax letters is dead.
 
2008-08-21 06:09:50 PM  
Is the envelope's return address the Minneapolis-St. Paul McCain campaign office?
 
2008-08-21 06:09:53 PM  
Was it from the president? A little "pick-me-up," as they say in Texas?
 
2008-08-21 06:10:23 PM  
Strange that this hit the papers so fast. Don't they usually try to keep this sort of thing underwraps until they have time to investigate so the sender doesn't know they have succeeded?
 
2008-08-21 06:10:37 PM  
Dr. Rockso was spotted fleeing the scene.
 
2008-08-21 06:10:46 PM  
Oh good, a thread to get the Blame Americans First crowd to start blaming Democrats for... well, everything, as usual.

I'll help them along - It's probably from the wife that John McCain cheated on and left when he got back from destroying the Navy's planes and telling the Viet Cong whatever they wanted to know.

The city of Denver is at a heightened security level, as the Secret Service and other officials prepare for the Democratic National Convention, which is set to begin on Monday.

Are you being sarcastic, or are you simply a retard? If it's the latter, you put up 1000 bucks, and name your odds. 100-to-1? Hell, 1000-to-1? Easy money.

Or are you just completely full of shiat?
 
2008-08-21 06:11:56 PM  
Powdered sugar for on top of his pancakes.

Has anybody called you a complete farking moron? Or am I the first?

Here's hoping the ass who did this gets caught and dealt with.
 
2008-08-21 06:13:57 PM  
Proved wrong again.

I was sure all the crazies were (R).

Unless its a conspiracy.

A plan to gain the sympathies of the masses.

A plan to gain sympathy votes....

It could be his next campaign strategy.

In which case, I haven't been proved wrong!!
 
2008-08-21 06:14:34 PM  
RON PAULtards sent it
 
2008-08-21 06:14:34 PM  
Oh yeah this is totally not an attempt to garner support for mccain, specially after the "I don't know how many houses I own" thing.

Its not like a republican would ever use fear to gain votes?

...what? you mean thats pretty much their election strategy oh, then it might be an inside job.

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin, 1755

Can we get a variation on Godwin's law for this quote? All it does is beg the question of what 'essential liberty' is and generally glosses over that society as a whole is a trade-off between individual freedoms and collective stability.

My bet is that it was sent by a Republican looking to drum up sympathy.
 
2008-08-21 06:15:35 PM  
See what happens when your poll number rise above Obama's? This is politics Chicago style.
 
2008-08-21 06:16:34 PM  
Oh shiat I said something stupid, hit the distraction!

DISTRACTION!
 
2008-08-21 06:16:44 PM  
I was going to say there was and error in the headline an then make a joke about it, but I guess it's really not that big of and issue.
 
2008-08-21 06:17:20 PM  
He received white POWder, eh...

I'm onto your tricks, McCain, who was a former prisoner of war!
