As the Illinois Democrat campaigned in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Thursday, Republican John McCain's campaign manager Rick Davis has issued a statement saying that Obama "played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck."I think that if anything loses this election for Obama it will be his own massive ego, not necessarily anything McCain does or doesn't do. This kind of hubris just isn't likable.
Davis said that move was, as he put it, "divisive, negative, shameful and wrong."

Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell has a three point lead over Rep. Don young in a new poll.
That is very welcome news. The GOP primary is slated for August 26.
You can donate to the Parnell campaign here.

Helping Lou Barletta win would also be an excellent way for all those who want to send a message to DC about illegal immigration.
I'd also recommend Chris Hackett in D-10, the GOP lost D-10 when our pork fiend congressman decided to have an affair, and may have attacked his mistress in an argument. He's a major improvement over the Democrat we have now, is totally opposed to pork and the out of control spending in DC. D-10 is a pretty solid red district, and there's no reason why we can't take this seat.

I may have my doubts about McCain, but I think he is finally running a smart campaign. First he hit Barack Obama yesterday for choosing to put winning a campaign above winning a war. Now his campaign is making two smart moves (h/t on both to The Corner). First, he's countering Sen. Obama's speech in Berlin by reaching out to Berliners himself:
In the latest effort to counter-program Obama’s tour of Europe and the Middle East, the Republican National Committee will air radio ads promoting John McCain’s candidacy in three different Berlins: Berlin, New Hampshire; Berlin, Pennsylvania; and Berlin, Wisconsin.Eh, maybe a little bit hacky, but it made me laugh nonetheless. Because I'm a hack, mostly. Make sure you check out the comments at the link, by the way. I didn't know Keith Olbermann had so many screen names.
McCain might also consider taking Rush Limbaugh's advice during his visit to New Orleans:
The campaign has been discussing having McCain visit an offshore oil rig during his visit, but it's not certain whether that is still on the agenda. A campaign aide would only say that McCain is planning to do "an event in the region" Thursday.Sounds like a good idea to me. Now, if he'd just accompany Gov. Palin on a visit to ANWR so he could change his mind on that issue, too.
Update: Looks like he's not only canceled the oil rig trip, he might be cancelling the New Orleans trip altogether. Lame.

It seems to be true, but with a few caveats:
A Republican challenger to Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania has raised more money than the incumbent in recent months, but also has more debt and has raised less overall.
William Russell, a former Army lieutenant colonel who relocated to Murtha's district to run against him, raised nearly $670,000 in the fundraising quarter that ended June 30.
That's interesting. If you feel like helping Russell rid the House of Representatives of one of it's corrupt members, donate to his campaign here.
Update: It looks like Michelle Malkin was a little bit ahead of me. Her new article is about this House race and it's worth a read. Although this is a little bit groanworthy (emphasis mine):
“The incredible story about Bill’s campaign is that the $15 and $25 contributions are coming in from all over Pennsylvania and every corner of the country,” Luksik noted on the Russell Brigade website (www.russellbrigade.com). “This is K-Street versus Main Street. These are patriotic families expressing support for soldiers, sailors and Marines, and people saying they’ve had enough of the old ‘pay-to-play’ culture in the Capitol. That’s what’s fueling this campaign.”
Hmmm...who else do we know that uses that kind of rhetoric?

I don't know where DPUD hides that siren graphic but we've got another big fucking GOP win:
The Bush administration didn’t waste much time after its lifting of the executive ban on off-shore drilling to make its second big gesture towards the oil markets. Late yesterday, the Bureau of Land Management opened 3.9 million acres of land in Alaska for drilling and exploration.
Fucking fantastic! Look for the price of oil to drop another 10 to 20 dollars as speculators begin to speculate that the United States might be back in the oil business. Also, as retarded as sending an envoy to Iran seems geopolitically, economically it may have been a really intelligent plan. President Bush may have just single-handedly popped the oil bubble.
Too optimistic? You tell me.

Congressional candidate Jason Chaffetz will join several other Republican contenders on a trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge next week to see first hand where some have proposed drilling for purported vast oil deposits.I don't know Cannon's stance on ANWR, but it is certainly nice to have a candidate that is pro-active enough to visit the site. And if Mr. Chaffetz is reading this moronblog for some reason, I just want him to know that he can expect to see an unsolicited cover letter and resume from me in a few days.
"Energy has become the No. 1 issue and I want to see firsthand part of the solution," Chaffetz said Wednesday.
Bush to lift executive ban on offshore drilling...
See, I'm not a complete 'tard, says President...
Harry Reid to snivel impotently in front of media cameras later today...
Global Warming cultists enraged, vow Gaia will have her revenge...
Al Gore devours an entire hoagie in five minutes...

If you ever see that he is going to be on Dennis Miller's radio show. It's usually classic.

I am disappointed that Wes Clark chose to allow himself to be used this way. He really shouldn’t have. It too easily invokes the image of a bantam rooster trying to belittle an American eagle.
I miss The Fred.
