And at Pajamas Media, David P. Goldman went for historical perspective: Obama's mother "was not only a Communist fellow-traveler," he wrote, "but the sort of 1960s woman who (as we used to say) 'put her body on the line,' first by marrying two Third World men, and then by spending her career in the Third World."

pretty sure there was something else commie-hating right-wingers in the 60s used to call a white woman marrying a black man

I don't even know who or what jerry treecler is, but I don't think his diapers should be near this thread.

There's nothing like getting a "Clooney and me" email from Barack.

oh, dip. that email was rough. this sort of thing happens in every national campaign ever, but I prefer my bernie sanders emails. grayson emails jumped the shark a while ago.

i kinda feel bad i've deleted all my campaign emails. four years of those subject lines would make some kind of found poem.

Interesting round-up of how engaged--disengaged, more accurately--ex-presidents have been in elections over the years (in light of Clinton's sudden prominence):

Roosevelt's post-presidential life after 1912 was a menace but I suppose it's possible to think he would have made a decent president in 1920 (when he was all but guaranteed the nomination again).

If things had turned out differently, would liked to have seen Kennedy in '68 and Nixon in '76 mixing it up from the wings (being so voraciously political, can't imagine that either could have kept away). Especially if Nixon still would have been the nominee in '68, which seems highly unlikely if Kennedy had lived to serve two terms.

Shame I can't vote in an American election because what I really like to do is vote crazy people into powerful positions.

standard right-wing response to Obama campaign's use of "forward" as a campaign slogan:

x-post-- great closing bit there:

“[C]ynical minds might wonder if there is a strategic outsourcing of the below-the-belt attacks to surrogates not officially affiliated with the campaign,” wrote National Review’s Jim Geraghty. “Of course, if the Democrats want to make this race about which candidate is closer to a polygamist ancestor … we can play that game.”

Note his use of "we" and obvious message in the last sentence, after first referring to the campaigns in the beginning.

Conservatives fucktards make it clear that openly gay staff member on Romney campaign is unacceptable, even if his job is as a foreign policy advisor:

You know, I kinda secretly hope this makes John Bolton go ballistic, as Grenell was one of his proteges. I'd love to see said fucktards try and paint HIM as a liberal commie whatever.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 19:52 (1 year ago) Permalink

That said, the fact that Grenell was indeed said protege says whatever you need to know about him on top of the asshole tweets and etc.

I know there's hypocrisy on all sides here, but I thought Sullivan's thing on the Bin Laden ad this morning was very good--and really tough on McCain.

http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast.com/2012/05/the-bin-laden-freakout.html?tw_p=twt

I have mixed feelings on the ad. I think it's situation where you'll get grief from some directions for running it, and would have gotten grief from other directions if you hadn't run it, or run something similar.

I understand its political impulses and the Dems no doubt feel gratified that they can be as neanderthal as the GOP.
