It should be a scary night for Republicans, as one of their most hated monsters will be doing a two-fer tonight. Yep, Michael Moore will be on Countdown with Keith Olbermann and then on Real Time with Bill Maher (of course, that’s not quite as scary as black people, young people, and college professors actually daring to vote in Florida).

So, did you watch the half hour Obama campaign ad last night? I did. I haven’t scoured the intertubes for reviews, but I thought it was OK. Nicely done, good production values. The couple minutes of the live rally in Florida was a good ending. I noticed he had the flag pin going (too late in the game to fuck with that stuff), and he got all your major demographics and ethnicities in there.

Tonight’s the big 30-minute Obama ad on several of the networks (all but ABC) and MSNBC. Of course, the wingnuts are all in a kerfuffle over it, but fake outrage is about all they’ve ever had in their bag of tricks, and it doesn’t seem to be working anymore.

One Week to Go

One week left before the election, and it’s certainly looking like the only questions are how big a win Obama will have, and whether or not his coattails will lead to a filibuster-proof Senate and another 30 or so House seats. The other question in my mind is what the sheeple will do if this election is stolen the way the past two were.

So, another week begins, and we’re only eight days away from the blessed end of this cursed election season. I’m not sure how much more of this I can take. I did see this ad from a local politician that I thought was pretty good, though.

Today on Press the Meat, Tom Brokaw has an “exclusive” with John McCain (that ought to be pretty sickening). Then it’s a roundtable discussion with pollster Charlie Cook, redheaded alien chick Kelly O’Donnell and Chuckie Todd.

Oh, those wacky young Republicans. This kid who made up the fake mugging and ‘B’ carving attack sure seems to have a screw loose (but then, anybody that would vote for McCain isn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the shed to begin with).

Poor Michelle Bachman. All she wants to do is root out un-American members of Congress (here’s an idea: why not create a House Un-American Activities Committee), and now she’s facing some real consequences for her patriotism.

So, sounds like Sarah and Johnny aren’t exactly playing well together. Gee, that’s too bad. It’ll be nice to get this election over with and see Palin fade into the northern horizon, and McCain go back and wait out what’s left of his Senate term in well-deserved obscurity (he and Liebermann can go off into some dark corner of the Senate Office Building and engage in mutual masturbation for a few years). As long as this AP poll is just an outlier (or a deliberate attempt to skew things), that is. I much prefer Chris Bowers’ electoral map, which has Obama over 270 in states where he leads by 7% or more, with a good shot at 306 and in play for up to 384 electoral votes.

Two weeks to go until Election Day. It’ll be nice to get it over with, assuming the Republicans don’t steal it again. And hopefully the Democrats can take total command of both the House and Senate, too. Then we can sit back and bitch about how nothing has changed and they all suck.
