Putting the rat in erratum

If Ron Fournier’s thoughts were his own when he wrote his latest execrable anti-Obama screed that picking Joe Biden was a sign of "weakness", Bill Kristol lets you know who writes the former’s columns:

McCain operatives were pleased by the Biden selection, which they considered, as one said to me, “a pick from weakness.”

Amazing how McCain’s operatives had that thought and Ron Fournier had this thought:

In picking Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate, Barack Obama sought to shore up his weakness

As others have noticed, no wonder he didn’t end up working for McCain formally, when he can do the same thing on someone else’s dime?

But by far my favorite aspect of Kristol’s column — other than the forthcoming correction — is the never ending series of McCain VP predictions.

Let us review, Kristol has previously suggested McCain will pick the following to run with him: Clarence Thomas, General Petraeus, General Odierno, and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

But Kristol is back and never one to be embarassed, he has a new prediction and suggestion — that McCain nominate his bestest li’l buddy, Joe Lieberman [somewhere Lindsey Graham is crest-fallen].

And why?

Hillary supporters could protest Obama’s glass ceiling by voting for John McCain and the Democratic Party’s 2000 vice presidential nominee.

Yes, because who would bring down the "glass ceiling" faster than another two white guys who opposed equal pay and reproductive rights?

Yes, McCain/Lieberman breaking the glass ceiling in time for the shards to plummet into your uterus — but it’s just a short-ride to another hospital.

You Never Thought Hip Hop Would Take It This Far



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
