    McCain campaign a month ago: "hey, betch you haven't even BEEN to Iraq!"

    McCain campaign today: "visiting Iraq is just a cheap political stunt!"

    Sane World: .... While true, doesn't that kind of point out your infamous Market trip?

    The whole thing was a trap set up by McCain. Didn't much matter what Obama did, but this is probably the politically safer move.

    It was a trap, I'm just curious if anyone will effectively call McCain on it.

    If I don't hear about it on Morning Joe tomorrow, I'm betting the whole thing will be a non-issue.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Well, fuck, if Bill Donahue hates it, then I'm convinced Obama has the right idea.

    Bumping this up again, just in case anyone was disappointed over this nontroversy. The kid was asking for a signature on his hand, and Obama declined saying the kid's mom wouldn't appreciate it.

    If you recall the nonsense surrounding McCain's Iraq trip nearly sank his campaign

    Which nonsense?

    McCain: Touring this Baghdad market, I can see that things are totally safe!
    The Reality Based Community: Um, didn't you have like 100 soldiers as guards and 2 Blackhawks overhead while touring that market?
    McCain: Shut up.

    Though I don't think that was what nearly sank his campaign, it was more his lack of conservativeyness.

    The market tour was pretty much when everyone was telling him to get lost.

    Isn't McCain the person who talked about how safe and normal it was while he had a ton of bodyguards protecting him?

    And he said this:
    General Petraeus goes out there almost every day in an unarmed humvee. I think you oughta catch up. You are giving the old line of three months ago. I understand it. We certainly don’t get it through the filter of some of the media.

    There was this CNN journalist stationed in Iraq who was almost speechless by the bullshit of the statement.

    New York Times is like...the quintessential "liberal" paper. Mostly because of its editorial page, if I'm not mistaken.

    It's owned by the Ochs-Sulzberger family.

    The Times isn't nearly as bad with the crazy editors as the WSJ, but I've seen some zany shit in there before.

    I was listening to radio yesterday and happened upon a talk show where the host was ranting about Obama's "anti-capitalist" and "communist-sympathetic" ideas and policies. It's really sad how much of this country is still stuck in the Cold War.

    Ah, yeah. New York Post is owned by Murdoch.

    And they may have been talking about the Washington Times. I thought the Washington Post wasn't too bad. Washington Times is a Sun Myung Moon rag.

    Murdoch bought the WSJ a little while back. He put one of his cronies in charge.

    Still it's important to note the WSJ's news and editorial staffs pretty much loathe each other.

    The NYT's editorial staff is very..uneven. It varies quite a bit depending on who's writing the piece.
