True that. In retrospect, it was pretty damned funny, and amazing he could keep the charade up for so long. Just very ingenuous.

It was really funny because I remember a thread maybe around a year ago where I saw whidbey, who is typically pretty liberal, was saying some stuff that was so right wing and hardcore pro-Bush/Cheney I couldn't believe it. I remember thinking, "damn, that's strange, he's usually pro-Democrat. Maybe this morning someone pissed in his Cheerios."

Now that this has been uncovered, I realize that that must have been another time where he accidentally posted as whidbey and not as skookum on accident, but that nobody caught it.

Mr_Wingnut: Why in the frakbot would the POTUS wear a transmitter the size of Tacoby's over-inflated ego? Your grandma could get a smaller one at Radio-Shack. Nice try, professor.


That's actually a good argument. It's also a ridiculous place to hide a transmitter- where the fabric sits tight? If you're going to stash a transmitter, you do it where the fabric is already loose or where a bulge won't be noticed. Lower torso, waist level, of hell- the pants leg.

Besides, the whole thing is moot unless you can hear the messages (and no one else can), which means he'd need an earbud or something similar.

Let's think about what's more likely:

Bush's handlers equipped him with a transmitter, risking the entire campaign on its secrecy (realistically, such malfeasance would torpedo most candidates, but then again- Bush has gotten away with worse), so that he could flub his way through their prompting. Never mind the obvious delay that it would entail while they fed him his lines.
OR:
Security concerns motivated him to wear body armor and later coceal the fact.
OR:
His clothes just bunched funny. It happens.
OR:
It was actually his shoulder holster. If the debate went badly, he was going to challenge Kerry to an old fashioned, High Noon type showdown.

PAGING ANONYMOUS, PAGING ANONYMOUNS, if you're in the greater St. Louis area, we need you to use your superskills to jam/shennanigize radio signals that would be used for an earpiece during the debate.

Someone should head on over to 4chan to suggest this and unleash those industrious fellows for this task. More productive than another raid on Habbo.

I could see them doing that and during the debate, she'd obliviously say, "hey St Louis,"

DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Father_Jack: it is not literally possible for someone with 4 phds to be on fark. it just cant happen.

It's also highly unlikely that any accredited University would admit someone with a PhD into another PhD program.

I know of cases where people get two PhDs, but it's usually because they radically change careers/paths late in the first PhD's game. For instance, a PhD in philosophy and then another in physics. Very rare for this to happen.

The point of the PhD isn't to learn new stuff, it's to prove you can do your own work. For instance, you can do a physics PhD and end up in a biology or chemistry career -- you don't need a special chemistry degree. An English PhD, though, less likely to go into biology.

But let's say -- two PhDs going for a third? Any Uni would laugh the application into the trash barrel. If the applicant couldn't prove that they could do their own work the first or second time around, they're already a loser. No more PhDs for you!

So someone claiming 4 PhD's is really claiming that they're an incredible loser.



This.

Getting a PhD in a field closely related to one in which you already hold a doctorate is like passing your driving test and then re-taking it in a different color car - you're not proving anything the second time around.

Very true, very true. An excellent use of Occam's Razor. Then again, Karl Rove, who once bugged his own office to throw blame on others, might well have engineered such an obvious transmitter as an inoculation against accusations of cheating. The accusers would already look like tin-foil hat types, in order to cover the obvious stuttering and staring into space while listening to instructions.

Stupid or genius? Who knows!

Dinner_at_the_Y: Honestly you libs are on full replay. Anytime a Republican mispeaks, they are stupid and dumb. Let Biden or any other idiotic lib ask a crippled man in a wheel chair to stand up, oh well he's just Joe being Joe. Keep up the tired old play fellas we know what you will say after the debate as well.


Maybe it's because Biden has 30+ years of highly-regarded experience. Palin has about 20 minutes experience and no cred with anyone outside of small-town Alaska and fundie churches.

"More aggressive sharpening better shows a possible wire running from the 'box' to his right shoulder."

It also shows that his hair is made out of wires.

I was unaware that the President would be using 70s-quality earpieces in 2004.

Not to mention that he did pretty terribly in that debate for a guy who was supposedly wired.

ML2008: The bottom of the ticket doesn't matter, Dummycrats. No matter how hard you try to slam down Sarah Palin with a bunch of "she doesn't believe in dinosaurs" lies, the focus truly belongs to the top of the ticket- and you'd almost think Obama is running unopposed for all the glorious butt-kissing coverage he's been receiving from the media. I'm so sick of hearing about this clown I can't even stand it. Can we just cut to the chase, swear John McCain into office the day after the election and send that lying idiot Obama back to Illinois?



If the focus only belongs on the top of the ticket, then why were Republicans complaining when Hillary was passed over for VP? Or when Biden was picked or VP? Why did they act like the Age of Aquarius arrived (complete with eerily awkward choreography) when Palin was given the VP nod for their party? Face it, McCain thought he had a stroke of genious picking Palin, but its slowly changing to look like he just had a stroke. He decimated his "experience" talking point, and then co-opted the challengers "Change" meme in an attempt to buy back some of the fire of his 2000 presidential run. Unfortunately it isn't playing out well even as a Republican talking point internally.

I don't hate the man and I won't cry if he's elected, but I don't think he is what the country needs right now. And his choice of VP only presses that point home.
 
2008-09-30 10:34:01 PM  
My prediction is that Palin will do poorly, but that Biden won't do much better. He'll turn on the windbag and screw up any perceived win.
