In Other News, Pigs In Keokuk Sprout What Appear To Be Vestigial Wings...

On the local teevee news last night, the opening shot was a teaser about John McCain's appearance that morning on NBC's Meet the Press, saying that he could "still win this election." Cut to a brief clip showing McCrusty flashing that scary, creepy smile and assuring Tom Brokaw that he was still in it, that he had Barack Hussein Obama right where he wants him, etc. etc. etc., and the local talking head blathered on about how the race is still up in the air. But the gist of it was, "McCain says he can still win."

Well, of course he did. What else is he going to say? "Tom, it's over. I'm going to lose, and lose badly. Obama will take states that haven't voted for a Democrat in over forty years. I'm going to get spanked so bad it will make red-headed stepchildren the world over breathe a sigh of relief. He's going to kick my ass so hard my brother will call 911 and my 97-year-old mother will say 'Ouch!'" McRagingfury started out his campaign by lying through his teeth, and has kept to that standard the whole time he's beeen out there stumping; why would he stop now?

And in other weekend campaign news, Obama gave a speech to a crowd estimated at 100,000 in Denver, while Angry John, up in Iowa somewhere, held a rally that drew six retired sheriff's deputies, four Jaycees, two Wal-Mart greeters and a 19-year-old student with a backwards "B" scratched into her cheek. Feel the love, John.
