McCain Fires 1st Torpedo at the Obama Garbage Scow Known as the "The Hope-y Smile-y Good Ship Lollipop"

~~Posted by InsightAnalytical-GRL

The admiral’s son finally began to take command of his ship yesterday in what many are saying is the  best speech of his lifetime.

The fact that he did it in Albuquerque, within earshot of the Santa Fe, home of  Bill Richardson’s little cesspool and the Obama elite crowd, warms my heart as I watch from southern NM.

Texas Hill Country has the entire text of the speech up and it’s available at C-Span.

Let’s just say that McCain has probably set up the message for the last month of his campaign.  Some are worrying that he’s tipped his hand, but I think that’s being too worried.  After all, the Obama crowd knows full well what’s down in the hold of the HSGSL and has been working diligently along with the media to hide it all along. I’m sure they have all their excuses all set up…unless Axelrod and Obama begin to commit more of what many see as a big faux pas (adding more fuel to the fire about the Ayers connection) as the pressure mounts.

During the debate, McCain needs to needle Obama with some of the points he made in his speech.  The object, of course, will be to get Obama stuttering and off his memorized script.  I fervently hope we can witness enough hemming and hawing coming from Obama to begin to destroy his much-vaunted “rhetorical skills.”

And I must give a huge amount of praise to Sarah Palin, who readied the first torpedo tube a few days ago when she dared to bring up Ayers.

The last couple of days prompted me to walk into McCain campaign headquarters yesterday (perish the thought!) where I met a group of very nice older women who knew all about PUMA. The office was in a crummier part of town in a dilapidated office center, much different from the free-standing building on the main drag that the Obama campaign is using.  (The regular Democratic Party has a permanent office in another neglected part of town)

One of the women indicated that she was an “independent” like me and I was able to pick up 3 stickers all related to Palin alone ( for example, “Palin Power, ” “Sarah! Girl Power” and “Read My Lipstick-Vote McCain-Palin”).

At the time, I was unaware of what McCain was saying in ABQ, but something must have been in the air…

From here on in, I’m hoping that the torpedoes come thick and fast and that all the rats below deck on the Obama Hopey-Smiley Good Ship Lollipop are sent overboard…all along with the captain and the crew…

THE PAST WEEK: Recaps & Rambling Thoughts–August 17-23 (Memories of Anita Hill; Timing of Rezko Sentencing; ACORN; Meet Emily; and Lima Beans!)

Well, now that Biden is Obama’s VP pick, I will make only one, short comment:

Biden, Spector, Kennedy and Anita Hill–and now with Obama, the same crap still being dished out, this time to Hillary Clinton.  It feels like a double-punch…

Here’s the latest on what’s going on with the Rezko sentencing:

Obama friend Rezko to be sentenced one week before election

According to the piece, ” other defendants convicted of similar crimes have been sentenced to numerous years in prison”

Should make interesting headlines, if the media decide to do their job…

A great post up at NO QUARTER…ACORN – CSI – OBAMA. Someone else noticed!
The writer discusses how some of the “mainstream” press is beginning to take a look, notably the NY Tmes and the PIttsburgh  Tribune-Review.

My own series on the recent news about ACORN and the League of Youth Voters here in NM can be found here.  The latter group has had its status changed and is now considered a PAC, which means under the law it must reveal all donors.  There’s going to be a lawsuit, but at least Attorney General Gary King is bringing some scrutiny to the unaccounted for money coming into the state’s politics.
