GOP ought to declare War on Error

It no jocke! Despite the hapless Republicans being roused these last few days by the fiery, fuehrery speeches of "Sarah Barracuda" Palin and John "Bushmastered" McCain et al., the GOP still finds ways to embarrass itself at its own convention to the delight of the world.

For instance, Sen. McCain appeared before a giant photo of what his campaign apparently thought was Walter Reed Army Medical Center, site of a shocking exposé of poor living conditions for wounded veterans that subsequently turned into a cleanup effort/photo-op for Pres. Bush and the Republicans.


Unfortunately, the building shown in the massive picture is actually Walter Reed Middle School in North Hollywood, California. Oopsies. (TPM additionally notes that the building was used by West Wing too; a brilliantly subtle jab at Obama then? Doubtful...)

The bumblin', stumblin' Team Magoo have also taken to using the Heart song "Barracuda" at events but apparently forgot to ask the band's permission. Heart's decidedly Democratic members have since had a cease and desist notice issued to the McCain/Palin camp.

More examples of conservagaffes:





Tip o' the hat to all the emailers sending me more goofs.

Both Obama and the American public should be very careful of what they wish for. By all rights, the Democrats should should have won this election. They have lost, because of the flawed character of their candidate.
------------------------------------------------------------

HIGHEST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN 5 YEARS, HIGHEST RATE OF FORCLOSURES IN HISTORY, VALUE OF HOME HAS DECREASED BY 15%.
HIGHEST GAS PRICES IN HISTORY, RECORD SETTING SPENDING & DEFICITS.
GEE, TO HEAR REPUPPETS TALK YOU'D THINK IT NEVER HAPPENED ON THEIR WATCH. FOR 6 YEARS OF LAST 7.6 YEARS GOP CONTROLLED ALL BRANCHES OF GOV. & FOR 20 OF LAST 28 YEARS THE WHITEHOUSE. THE 8 YEARS OF PROSPERTY WERE UNDER DEM.

THE GOP HAS WAGED A UNDERLYING WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS & MADE THE RICH RICHER & MIDDLE CLASS LESS. YOU FOLKS DESERVE WHAT HAPPPENS IF YOU PUT THE GOP IN AGAIN. NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELVES IF YOU FALL FOR MORE OF THE SAME FROM GOP.

DEMS HOLD SLIM MARGIN IN HOUSE FOR 19 MONTHS & GOP HAS USED FILIBUSTER RECORD 80 TIMES OVER 19 MONTHS TO BLOCK THEM FROM ANY MEANINGFUL PROGRESS & TRY TO MAKE THEM LOOK BAD. THIS SHOWS GOP IS ALL ABOUT PARTY FIRST, COUNTRY SECOND BY THEIR GRIDLOCK MOVES.

McCAIN SAYS COUNTRY FIRST, BUT HE BROKE IN CAPTURE & INFORMED ON HIS COUNTRY & COST SOME OTHER PILOTS THEIR LIVES. I GUESS HE NEVER HEARD THE CREED "DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR" HE VOTES AGAINST VETS & THEIR ISSUES. HE VOTES "NO" REPEATEDLY ON MINIMUM WAGE INCREASE. VOTES "NO" ON MEDICARE FUNDING.

A MAVERICK MY A**, HE SINCERELY WANTED JOE LIEBERMAN FOR VP BUT
CAVED IN TO FAR RIGHT WHO WERE PUSHING PALIN. IN 26 YEARS IN HOUSE WHERE IS THE CHANGE HE IS TALKING ABOUT.

AMERICA......YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU GET IF YOU DO THE SAME FOR 3rd ELECTION IN A ROW! GOP (GRAND OIL PARTY) THAT IS WHY RICE IN LIBYA NOW, THE OIL. GOP SOLUTION TO GAS PRICES IS HELP EXXON-MOBIL EVEN MORE.

THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY..........DOING THE SAME THING OVER & OVER & EXPECTING IT TO BE DIFFERENT BUT KEEP GETTING THE SAME RESULTS....BURNED.

THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT AMERICA!

Funny the GOP would want to use the Heart Song "Barracuda" for their events. The song if I recall deals with Heart's unfavorable interactions with recording agents during their music career. This would be quite appropriate actually to show the Repulsican's callous butchering of the American middle class the past eight years plus Bush 1's 4, plus Ronald RAYgun's appalling term prior. Maybe a Freudian slip in choice?

Anybody else out there notice that every single Govt. report that has been issued on economic indicators has has to been modified downwords for the last 18 months.
So they have politicized the OMB also?

Another item in the War on Error:

Would-be purchasers of Federal Duck Stamps on the ameche are being directed to a phone-sex freecall line; worse yet, because of "high costs," there are no plans to recall the brochures with the incorrect number and reprint such with the correct number.
