Saturday Morning Roundup

Obama's portrait done in LEGOs.

Biden: "I am sick and tired of this phoniness."
rAmen, brother!

Biden isn't the only one sick and tired of McCain/Palin phoniness lately:
McCain loses the respect of long-time admirer and biographer.
"I am one of the journalists accused over the years of being in the tank for McCain. Guilty."
Rep. Wayne Gilchrest (R-Maryland) endorses Barack Obama.
Wick Allison, former supporter of Barry Goldwater and editor of the National Review says, "I now see that Obama is almost the ideal candidate for this moment in American history."

"Who Advises"

“You are interviewing the greatest free trader you will ever interview, and the greatest deregulator you will ever interview,” [McCain] said.

McCain is now for regulation. He must think we are a A Nation of Village Idiots.

Just in case it isn't abuntantly clear by now, McCain is Flunking Economics.

Let's see. A few hours have passed since McCain's last lie. Must be time for another!

-The ad claims Obama will raise taxes on electricity. He hasn't proposed any such tax. Obama does support a cap-and-trade policy that would raise the costs of electricity, but so does McCain.

-It falsely claims he would tax home heating oil. Actually, Obama proposed a rebate of up to $1,000 per family to defray increased heating oil costs, funded by what he calls a windfall profits tax on oil companies.

-The ad claims that Obama will tax "life savings." In fact, he would increase capital gains and dividends taxes only for couples earning more than $250,000 per year, or singles making $200,000. For the rest, taxes on investments would remain unchanged.

McCain has made much of a New York Post article that claims Obama improperly asked Iraqis to delay signing off on a "Status of Forces Agreement" until after the November election. Problem is, Undermining McCain Campaign Attack, Republicans Back Obama‘s Version of Meeting With Iraqi Leaders.

Troopergate takes a turn for the weird when Sarah Palin claims the reason she fired Public Safety Commissioner, Walt Monegan, was because he made an unauthorized trip to Washington, D.C. to lobby for funds for an anti-sexual-violence program. Apparently, this was "the last straw" in going against the Palin administration. No to an anti-sexual-violence program, but yes to a bridge to nowhere? Really?
