Oh shit, this must be McCain's "October Surprise".
It may lift some of your spirits to know that even the urban rednecks at my corner bar don't like Sarah Palin. I overheard one of them yesterday saying "McCain'll stroke out and she'll be President! I'm movin' to fuckin' Mexico!" before stomping out for a smoke.

I've been to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. I've looked into the eyes of that cat. It wasn't pretty, my friends.

Oh, hell; that just might help him claw his way back up, cmonkey. :( We should have expected something just this depraved at the tail end of the race.

The phrase also works with the next picture in the series.

The main thing that's gonna suprise McCain this october is the dawning realisation that Mike Wooten can read ... the ... vice .... presidents ... thoughts.

rainbaby: McCain was actually asked about that remark and he refused to contradict it the other day - McCain said "I have to look at the context of his remarks...The fact is that William Ayers was a terrorist and bomber and unrepentant...Senator Obama ought be the candid and truthful about his relationship with Mr. Ayers." Apparently, campaign organizers are overtly instructing volunteers to compare Obama to a terrorist whose religious war has killed thousands: "[State GOP Chairman Jeffrey M. Frederick] climbed atop a folding chair to give 30 campaign volunteers who were about to go canvassing door to door their talking points for instance, the connection between Barack Obama and Osama bin Laden: "Both have friends that bombed the Pentagon," he said. "That is scary." ..."And he won't salute the flag," one woman added, repeating another myth about Obama. She was quickly topped by a man who called out, "We don't even know where Senator Obama was really born." Actually, we do; it's Hawaii."

October Surprises were an annoying meme since before Rick was old enough to Roll. But they, or the threat of them, will continue to be a Presidential Campaign Standard until we do something drastic. Like move the elections to June. Because "May Surprise" just sounds weird.

How does May/December Surprise sound?

We should only have surprises in months with "R" in them. Otherwise we might get ptomaine.

MCCAIN: "Well, it's me again. Yep, I'm sorry. Again."
(sound of wheezy laughter)

OBAMA: "Well, it's been a long campaign. I understand. No worries. Still want to be President?"

MCCAIN: "Oh yes, sir! Very much so!"

OBAMA: "Well, to be President you are going to have to learn to stick to the issues, young man. This calling me up every other week to apologize for something just won't get the job done."

MCCAIN: "I know, I know, I'm sorry."

OBAMA: "It's alright, now run along. You've got an Express to catch!"


MCCAIN picks up his school bag and runs merrily off.

OBAMA shakes head jovially, then gets back to the business at hand....
