Tacoby Bellisbury: bulldg4life: If there's one thing funnier than talking about a VP candidate that has zilch knowledge of domestic or foreign issues flailing about...it's watching Tacoby desperately try to get people to stop laughing at his idiocy.

? Please. I've been rolling in walls of laughter at all you losers who can't rub two brain cells together. Yourself included, mr. entitlement. How's your trust fund going?


Look, let me give you some troll advice. You can't mix the 'I'm smarter than you' troll with the 'you're a trust fund kid' troll. It just doesn't work. Almost mutually exclusive. You should've stopped while you were ahead.

while i would agree, it wouldn't matter today . . . since obama considers military service inconsequential, not at all important to him when considering the position of commander in chief

and of course his supporters don't care about experience either . . .

so it's a moot point, basically, it would seem if you listened to them


How can anyone who votes for their republican team even consider posting this? Ronald Reagan served in the military? Bush Jr served in the military? God damn you people are so blind.

I am so tired of sport team politics. I am a huge fan of the Buffalo Bills and Milwaukee Brewers (long story) and stand by them during good and bad seasons. But I cannot even think to stand by a political party when they don't represent my interests. You really think McCain gives 2 shiats about you?

Biden will make a fool of himself again. Why would this time be any different than every other time he's opened his mouth?

They already conceded defeat:

FTA: "The Obama-Biden campaign is trying to set the expectations bar low for its candidate while building up the debate face of its rival."

Its seems that all the Barack and Biden fans have forgot. Palin has more experience than Barack himself. Sure she isn't the snake in the grass like Obama. At least she's been on her job and thats more than we can say for him.

NINTENBOXCUBESTATION 360:

Im a staunch Democrat, but Ive come around to believe that that is a Kevlar vest.

Compare:

It makes sense the President would always be wearing a vest whenever he travels outside the white house, and it makes sense we, the public, wouldnt be told about this.


That's a pretty good explanation actually. And I bet the SS would no way let anyone tell the media about Bush's security measures.

hubiestubert: Biden doesn't need to crush Palin. He needs to focus on McCain. And force Palin to defend McCain's policies and stands. That's all.

Leave her out of it. Leave her experience off the table. Leave her alone. Concentrate on his only target, which is the top of the ticket.

Palin will get into trouble on her own, so all he has to do is concentrate on his job, which is to defend his candidate, and to tear at hers.


I didn't mean crush her directly, but crush her in terms of overall performance. But yeah, I agree with the whole give her enough rope and she'll hang herself approach.

Rockdrummer: No maybe she'll say:

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd assured us that Fannie and Freddie were in good shape. Obama received the second most $$ from F and F. Dodd got a "VIP" loan from Countrywide. McCain warned of needed regulations, Bush warned of needed regulations, regulators warned of needed regulations. Dems said no, give loans to people who can't pay them.

Then why did Bush fight the 50 SAGs when they attempted to prevent predatory lending in their states? When did Bush warn of regulatory need? Please enlighten us to that. We will be waiting.

And when it comes crashing down, what is the erudite Democrat response?

"It's the Republicans fault."

That is a shiat sandwich.

whidbey: You'd think of all people that I would get the joke here. But I'm not seeing it.

Our friend, Tacoby here, is a well-respected intellectual with 4...count them FOUR...Phds

Biology, Organic Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Mollecular Biology

Yes, he spelled molecular wrong when he told me. And, for whatever reason, he got a degree in Biology AND Molecular Biology. Despite repeated requests, he's never provided any of the dissertations (and you can't find them anywhere) and he'll crucify you if you question him on it.

He's also successfully copied and pasted comments from Malkin's blog and passed them off as his own (since he has multiple accounts at Malkin's site and tests his comments out there first).

So, he's just a regular unoriginal troll that doesn't really do anything beyond repeat a talking point and then go for the personal attacks. He tries real hard though.

And, he sure is funny when his mouth starts to froth.

Considering that Palin, regardless of her performance, will still become the punchline of the Friday morning press... What is there to lose?

The worst case scenario for her has already been typed up and is ready to print. The Best case scenario: She could take Biden (Obamas Experience card) out with her.

I think the idea that big tough Joe Biden is going to school the little lady in how things are done in the real Washington could be very dangerous for him. The man has a chronic case of foot in mouth disease and his opponent is not as new to politics as some people want her to appear.
If he commits to a serious Gaffe or insult during the debate, its going to be heard by millions of voters and it will be forced to press. Making for a flurry of attack ads by Monday.

If palin screws up she's still the darling of the extreme right and only becomes fodder for more SNL skits (as if those were not already in the works).

Well, round two is over , and we have now reached the "My stupid argument is better than your stupid argument" portion of tonight's show...Folks, please remember in this speed round of stupid comebacks and remarks that common sense has been tossed completely aside and tasteless, childish rebuttals are all that matter. It's like a giant political game of "Yo Mamma." The more off-topic the comeback is, the more points they score. This is what they are competing for...

Which is precisely why they put her on the ticket because you're supposed to be voting for a president, not a screechy piece of skirt because she's a woman.

I can't believe just how vindictive women get when they're told they're getting screwed out of something, even to the point of putting any woman, qualified or not, into the Whitehouse.

tomp: Wow so much hate for Sarah. FWIW: I voted for her when she ran for Governor and I will be voting for her to be out VP.


It's not hate. It's recognition that she's out of her depth.

As a Governor, I think she was doing her job. And in the debates that I've seen from the last election cycle up Alaska way, she was concise, she was on point, and she was focused. She was also very much in her element. Genial, knowledgeable, and even a little funny.

She's not a stupid woman by any means, but she is very much out of her depth on the national stage. She is just not ready for the full brunt of the media attention, nor is she well versed on the policy elements. For all the bluster from many folks, I don't think that we really need to have on the job training for her to get up on national policy issues.

Even Dan Quayle had more national experience under his belt than Palin. She is simply a poor choice, and no where near ready for such an office, and it reflects poorly on Senator McCain that he picked her as VP essentially as a stunt for short term gain.

Recognition of poor suitability isn't hate--and a great deal of the derision are folks who are oblivious of her very obvious short comings, or who try to play them as strengths, either in a misguided attempt at party unity, partisan blindness, or as a part of their job description in padding out forums for their astroturf obligations.

That's funny that you say that cause Palin has a 15% attendance record as governor so far.

And also, Obama was sworn in as Senator in 2004. Palin as governor in 2006.

If you want to bring up "executive experience"; well that's a Republican talking point that only douchebags buy.

As Tacoby's exceptionally liberal father who has disowned my lil franchise, I do have to admit that there many PhDs and dissertations that can be credited towards Tacoby. I have the proof, just don't ask me for it since I don't care about Tacoby anymore.
