All's Quiet on the Western Front

Just dipping into the popcorn, munching out, watching the punches fly,

Obama has begun a "Truth Police" in Indiana,

The Clinton campaign calls the group's creation "strange."

The "Truth Squad" includes former U.S. Rep. Tim Roemer, who represented South Bend from 1991 to 2003; state Sen. Earline Rogers, D-Gary; state House Majority Leader Russ Stilwell, D-Boonville; and former aides to former Gov. Joe Kernan, former Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson and three attorneys general.

Their first act is to um....lambast the independent commercial that maintains that BO does not have a plan BD talks about it :

I dunno, it's a little scary to me, not sure if it is a precursor of Obama mimicking McCain like he did with Hillary or what but it still is kinda scary....makes me want to dredge up the flouride conspiracy theory and apply it to kool-aid...well heck why not, here goes:

From the book Political COnspiracies in America: A Reader, editors Critchlow, Korasic and Sherman present the flouride conspiracy of the Cold War era.
"1. Sodium fluoride is a deadly poison, toxic in any part per million....
4. Artificial fluoridation is politically inspired....
7. Artificial fluoridation is mass compulsory medication with a deadly poison....
23. Sodium fluoride has been used for years as a rat and roach poison...
24. Flourine is the identifying element in the fatal nerve and madness gases of chemical warfare.
25. Flouridation has been used in countries taken over by dictators to immobilize the people's will and ability to think. It has been used in Russia for this purpose...."

Now I am torn should I locate the Obama thought police err I mean "truth police" and give them this relevant and startling evidence?
It's quite evident that flouride is being used by the Republicans to:

1. Make Wright turn against him
2. Make Michelle appear to be a mindless drone
3. Make that balloon dude do a great blow up balloon impersonation of Hillary

4. Make everyone feel safer with the war in Iraq than the war at the DNC
5. Make dems more afraid of Donna Brazile than the Ayatollah Khomeini
6. Give Hillary the popular vote in NC
7. Make Obama rhyme and conjugate with EVERY word in the English language including itself

decisions, decisions......but then again if you replace Flouride with Koolaid....

"1. Sodium Koolaid is a deadly poison, toxic in any part per million....
4. Artificial Koolidation is politically inspired....
7. Artificial Koolidation is mass compulsory medication with a deadly poison....
23. Sodium Koolaid has been used for years as a rat and roach poison...
24. Koolaid is the identifying element in the fatal nerve and madness gases of chemical warfare.
25. Koolidation has been used in countries taken over by dictators to immobilize the people's will and ability to think. It has been used in Russia for this purpose...."

Maybe the primaries are going on too long...

“Democrats have a habit of falling in love with candidates on the first date.”

Thanks, I just read the article. I did think it odd that Roemer had used the opportunity for a personal dig on the Clinton's. Aren't "Truth" police supposed to be somewhat unbiased? oh but then again they are being paid for by Obama.

Wow just read all of them, those are incredible. Did you see the links on the second post?

and she's better than almost all professional journalists--certainly knew what was news and what not.

hah! -- "Confronting his displeasure with the Reverend Wright seems to have lit a fire under the Barack ass."

he really doesn't have the stamina for this--and the WH ages them all double-fast too.

and constantly making cracks about babies being born and now walking since the campaign began, and about 21 debates already, bla bla bla, reinforces it.

He's never ever had to run in a seriously-contested campaign i don't think, and now he's up against both Clinton and McCain.

he certainly has bad media management skills--his timing is terrible and slow.

at the Washington Post's The Trail. Hilarious because after going through all of the things that appear to be going Clinton's way, it then cut and pastes a few paragraphs on at the end explaining why Clinton can't win. It's quite jarring.

they would probably get fired if they didn't throw in the recommended daily amount of anti-Clinton stuff.

This from Fowler is revealing:

Did Senator Obama know to whom he was speaking? Likely not. That's been his problem lately on the campaign trail--not knowing exactly where he was. He even made a joke about it in Hickory when he tried to recall where he had just met someone whose story he wanted to tell. "We were down in--where were we?" Quickly he came up with Winston-Salem, and everybody laughed. Monday in Wilmington, however, not only did he seem not to know Wilmington but the date and time, saying that it was "March" and "nine months to November." The fact that his audiences are largely composed of die-hard fervent loyalists usually masks this underlying dis-connection. But it's worth noting that Senator Clinton always knows exactly where she is and to whom she is speaking. On Sunday in Wilmington, for example, her opening remarks touched in quick succession on several important things about the town: the glorious setting on the Cape Fear River, its connection to the military, the upcoming commissioning of the new submarine North Carolina there next weekend, and the fact that "this country has been very good to me and to many of you," for people who are lucky enough to live in Wilmington are lucky indeed.

And this is interesting:

t one point he said, "Lately the other candidates aren't talking about their ideas--they're talking about me." As far as Senator Clinton is concerned, nothing could be further from the truth. She presents more ideas on the stump than she has time for. This misrepresentation incensed a group of women friends in Hickory. They had seen Hillary Clinton several times in North Carolina and had come to hear Barack Obama before finally making up their minds. Scratch twelve votes for him.

"Don't hit on Hillary." Only the day before the Hickory event, Jean Weiss, a feisty eighty-two year-old, told Obama, when he called on her, thinking he would get a question, just that. Age admonishing youth, it was a powerful moment that the crowd much appreciated. That Senator Obama seemed to have forgotten Weiss only a day later may be a sign only of Wright-driven stress.

And this is worrisome:

Often on the campaign trail, however, despite his frequent comment that as President he will listen to the American people, Barack Obama seems to hear only what he wants to hear. Given the mass adulation with which he is received now, audiences don't seem to perceive Obama's selective detachment. If Obama is the next President of the United States, however, the mainstream media as well as bloggers will be busy documenting the various scenes in which this dynamic manifests itself.

Ack. Not good.

Thanks for the link, BDB.

Y'all were talking about basketball analogies earlier, but the more I hear about this, the more I think it sounds like the "rope-a-dope" strategy of Muhammad Ali.

Ali leaned back on the ropes and let Foreman land all the body blows he wanted to. Ali hung in there and took it until Foreman was exhausted in the 5th round, and then finally knocked Foreman out in the 8th round.

He's exhausted, and every thing attacks him leaves him more dazed and out of it. She's just getting stronger.
