Meet Daniel Zubairi, a grassroots organizer for the McCain/Palin Campaign. Above you’ll see Daniel bravely speak out against the hatred being spewed by one of a bunch of bad apples that have been making the McCain rallies sound a lot like some other rallies that you can find in old news reels.
Daniel confronts 2 people that are handing out stickers and spewing lies about Barack Obama being connected to radical Islam and Communism. As an Muslim and a McCain campaign organizer, Daniel really sticks it to them and says in no uncertain terms that they do not represent the views of the campaign and the campaign does not condone their actions.
Wonderful! This is just the kind of straight-talk that I would expect from the McCain campaign. The only problem is, the campaign is not allowing Daniel to speak to the press.
Wow. Just when they get a chance to allow an official representative of the campaign to speak out against hatred, fear and lies as a campaign tactic, they muzzle him.
I thought McCain said he was proud of the people at his rallies? I agree that it’s foolish to judge a candidate based on the lowest of his supporters. I’m sure that Obama has radical Islamic supporters just like McCain has White Supremacist supporters. But I’m positive that if the press wanted to interview an official member of the Obama campaign that confronted a group of radical Islamics at an Obama rally, they would be allowed. Why is the McCain campaign extending it’s theme of press black-outs? It hasn’t worked with Sarah Palin, and it’s certainly not going to work with a like-able character like Daniel.
Let Daniel Speak!

Well, the third and last Presidential Debate has come and gone. Only 20 short days till Americans across the country will file into tiny closets with curtains and little switches and decide the fate of the free world. We’re in the most trying economic time in our country since men with curly mustaches were jumping out of windows in the thirties. We continue to lose lives of our finest and bravest citizens in deserts half a world away. Osama Bin Laden is still breathing. We can’t seem to figure out how to provide fair and comprehensive healthcare to all our citizens.
But what subject seemed to be on the minds of the 2 candidates more than any other during the debates tonight?
That’s right. Joe is f’ng famous for asking Barack Obama about his tax policy about a week ago. He is now a household name. Well, a household first name and then a profession. But you really have to give it to Barack. Maybe Joe is not voting for him still, but Barack took 5 minutes and answered his question in a clear, concise manner that did not pander to him or insult his intelligence.
Here is a short impression of Joe when he first heard his name mentioned tonight.
Joe was mentioned by John McCain no less than 24 times and by Barack Obama 4 times. I really hope that’s enough. Because I really can’t make a decision about a candidates position until the 34th or 35th time they run something into the ground.
If you want to score this debate, I’d call it a clean sweep by Obama. Sure McCain got in a really good line about Barack tying him to Bush. Even I gave him style points when he said “If you wanted to run against Bush you should have ran 4 years ago”. But still, Obama remained his calm, cool and collected self. McCain still looked creepy when he smiled or laughed. And frankly Obama won the I look and act presidential contest.
Again, both candidates performances I’m sure really sat well with their bases. But the independents are simply not going to go for a guy they don’t want to look at for the next 4-8 years. It’s sad, but true. No matter what their stance on the issues, Barack looks like a president and John looks like that uncle you avoid at parties.

For the first time in 15 years the Phildadelphia Phillies are going to the World Series. Those who know me, know that I gave my heart to the Yankees sometime in college after meeting a large man with a big forhead. But I’ve never stopped loving the Phils and I am absolutely beside myself with happiness that they’re going to the Fall Classic.
My only worry is that Mitch Williams will find a way to ruin this again.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. God-damn Mitch Williams.
