• Whatever you do, don’t call it a “timeline”! No, no, no. It’s a “general time horizon” for withdrawal. Politics: Enemy of the English language!

• More insane bullshit from the Second Dumbest Blogger on the Planet®, Larry C. Johnson, who now claims there’s proof floating around that the New Yorker cover was NOT satire. Yes, he’s really advancing this crackpot story. Good grief, the man is almost as stupid as Patrick Ross. Almost.

• According to The National Post, gas prices are expected to drop this summer. No, it’s not a typo, but the free market in action! Should be interesting to see whether the laws of supply and demand still hold true.

• Not that it should surprise anyone, but California’s ballot measure to ban gay marriage is failing according to the latest survey.

• West Vancouver MP Blair Wilson admits to breaking Elections Canada rules but says the “smear campaign” against him has “backfired.” Commissioner of Elections William Corbett found that most of the allegations in an anonymous complaint were unfounded or insufficiently substantiated.

• It’s hard to imagine that McCain’s latest gaffe was anything but an innocent mistake, but even so, it’s sloppy and given all the trips to Iraq that he’s taken, he of all people, should have known better than to spill the beans.

  1. McCain – this is supposed to be the guy who is the expert on security?

    I think he’s angry at all the attention Obama is getting and now he’s criticizing Obama’s trips….duh, McCain took trips a few months ago, his including Canada – why is that different.

  2. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, maybe he thought the information was already public seeing as there’s been a lot of news about his upcoming trips.

  3. RuralSandi,

    McCain has been baiting Obama for months about the fact that he hasn’t been to Iraq. He made a big deal out of it. Now that Obama is on his way there McCain is now trying to “put him down” for it & stating things like “he’s going to be campaining abroad now” tut-tut. Which is EXACTLY what he (McCain) has been doing. But of course it’s always different when it’s your “opponent”. The usual “double standard” the CONs are so famous for.

    Obama is in Afghanistan as I type this.

  4. Well, well, well … this is just like the time Helena “Miss Huronia” Geurgis shot her mouth off about Dion and Ignatieff being in Afghanistan.

    While it could be considered a “gaffe”, Red, it’s also a breach of security and Grampy McSame should know better. After all, isn’t he the guy with all the foreign policy and security experience?

  5. This is getting creepy but I swear I can read or hear something McCain says and hear his “gears turning.”

    Sounds to me from that quote that McCain did know the schedule – perhaps from another Senator on the trip – flubbed in mentioning it in his remarks, realized he flubbed as he was saying it and so quickly added the caveat about not knowing Obama’s exact schedule.

    This is the third or fourth quote I’ve seen from him this past couple of weeks, and in each case it was crystal clear what was going on in his head behind the words.

    Strangely comforting, dare I say straight-talk (or in this case muddly fumbling straight talk). But it is a little unsettling as well. Maybe we do expect politicians to be a little polished and to be able to invoke a cloak during their normal daily routines and in their remarks . . . maybe the job actually requires they pull it off.

    If so, McCain’s gaffes may be subtle now but they are mildly disconcerting. There may be a good reason he doesn’t think it wise to meet any world leaders until the conditions are just right (i.e., all that is left is to ink the signature on whatever is being negotiated).

  6. Red,

    West Vancouver MP is ‘Blair’ Wilson, not ‘Bill’.

    He’s a real ‘sweetheart’ all right. Why does the term ‘con artist’ keep rolling around in my mind?

  7. Oh, that Larry C. Johnson and his big mouth. He’s going to blow our cover soon and we liberals/lefties/progressives/commie tories will up the creek.

    Jesus Christ! (pbuh)
