Death holds no lease in the world of political endorsements
-Headline of the Day-
"Murkowski to air endorsement by late Sen. Stevens."
Primaried-out incumbent Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is about to get an endorsement from beyond the grave -- Ooooooo... Halloweeny!
According to the report, Lisa "is set to air a television ad this week featuring a video endorsement by the late Sen. Ted Stevens, who filmed the clip shortly before his death in a plane crash earlier this year." Ted's ghostly visage will appear on Alaskan TV screens to tell voters, "We need Lisa and the seniority she's earned, now more than ever." I've seen it, it's nightmarish. I may not sleep tonight.
Noted witch Christine O'Donnell has nothing on Lisa Murkowski. It's necromancy or something... (MSNBC, with video)
-Most unfair attack ad EVER-
I thought we had it bad...
Electoral politics in Winnipeg are brutal! (YouTube, via Political Wire)
"Brian Kilmeade sez: 'Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.' Oh really?"
And not all mental patients are co-hosts of Fox & Friends, but all co-hosts of Fox & Friends are mental patients.
You know what I love about this oft-heard rightwing argument Kilmeade offered? It's a bastardization of a John Stuart Mill quote; "Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative."
