    Despite having faith in polling, it is threads like this that could cause one to think that McCain/Palin are actually going to win Tuesday.

    If americans get a good close look at the san francisco circus and decide instead to go home and make some popcorn and watch a wholesome movie we could be looking at a GOP presidency.

    I have to admit I have never heard of the guy. Is he one of the respected conservative commentators? And why was he shouting from the start? Just bizarre.
    Never heard of him, either.

    For you economic history buffs out there, here is one capitalist economist in an obscure work called 'An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations':

    I think there's no video that better demonstrates the problem with American talk radio than Chris Matthews' interview with right-wing talk show host Kevin James. In May, Bush went before the Israeli Knesset and called Obama and appeaser. Matthews discusses it with his two guests and when he senses that James is an ignoramus, he goes in for the kill. Overnight, James became a national laughing stock, but unfortunately, a large percentage of voters on the right still get all of their information from people just like him.

    She probably had Miss Sweden in the wings.

    Q1 It must be hard to live in a socialist country, is there any truth to the rumor you are seeking political asylum?

    Q2 Are Swedes allowed to stay out after dark?

    Q3 Is it true you burn money in the fireplace to heat your homes at night?

    It must be terrible to have to live in Sweden! :roll:

    She's obviously a graduate of the Sean Hannity school of journalism. This video shows the same woman interviewing John McCain.

    I had not seen that one before. What's interesting is that it has been uploaded to youtube many times. Just read the titles, you can tell whether the uploader was left or right leaning. Clearly the right thought she was a tough interview for Biden. I have to disagree, he pretty much crushed each question. She didn't even followup on his responses.
    That's because she doesn't know what she's talking about. At one point she actually says "And moving along to the next question" as if it's a Miss World pageant or something.

    Flumpy, Chris Matthews occasionally does the type of interviews that I think you would appreciate like when he when after right-wing Congresswoman Michele Bachmann a couple of weeks ago. If she gets voted out of her very conservative district on Tuesday, this exchange will be the reason why. However, if an interviewer goes to far, like Barbara West did last week with Joe Biden, they'll get boycotted. This exchange lead to Obama cutting off all access to his campaign personnel from this TV station and pulling all of his commercials off the station.
    Yeah saw both of these. I love the bit where that ridiculous woman says "What is your response to people who say that Barack Obama will want to turn America into a socialist country much like ....wait for it......... SWEDEN" WTF???:lol:

    I thought she was goingt o say Venuzuela or Cuba but Sweden???

    Joe Biden is great when she asks if Obama is a Marxist because he wants to "spread the wealth around" he looks bewildered and says "Are you joking? Is that a serious question?".

    You just don't get such ridiculously biased presenters in Britain. Certainly not on something that purports to be a news show. It's just embarrassing ops:

    As you may have guessed I'm completely obsessed with the Us election. It's the new Olympics!!! Although hopefully they'll be far less surprise winners.

    Despite showing his bias on both sleeves he does stand up for what he considers "good guys" from GOP. As far as i can tell it comes down to how far down the dirty trick path they are willing to go.

    I was in New York during September just after Palin was nominated for VP (It was during that time of lipstick on a pig nonsence that made me despair for the American public if it's thaty kind of crap that the media focus' on) and was really impressed by CNN. It seemed to be genuinely 'Fair and balanced' and had some really good reporters who doing there very best to stay on track during extremely trying times.

    Obviously nothing comparable to the BBC but certainly way better than i remember from when i used to get CNN Worldwide.
