Are you joking? Is this a joke?


Is that a real question?” Biden continues.

That’s a question.” West said.

With a chuckle, Biden firmly tells West, “He is not spreading the wealth around. He’s talking about giving the middle class an opportunity to get back the tax breaks they used to have.”

“We think middle class tax payers should get a break, that’s what we think,” Biden added. “That’s a ridiculous comparison with all due respect.”

The dKos diary is based on Blue Tidal Wave and you know how these things are.  I have no experience with them as a source, but I only deal in the most reprehensible rumors anyway.

The boycott controversy has been on all day on Faux.  I’m surprised to find so little on the web except the Recommended diary from dKos because in my humble opinion it’s a big deal.  I saw somewhere that Drudge agrees, but dang if it turns up on teh Googles.

Hmm… more diligent research suggests this is a source-

Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden

“This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,” wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.

Still, I’d be very interested in meatier sources because Faux is frothing at the mouth ACORN style.

  3. …attempts to poison (choose as many as appropriate):

      1) the blue tidal wave,

      2) the blue lagoon,

      3) the blue moon,

      4) blueberry pie,

      5) players’ choice…

    but i would not boycott that station or any like them . . . i want people to see Joe Biden, confident, intelligent, respectfully and winningly repudiating that ideologue. I watched the youtube and was mightily impressed by Sen. Biden. i think even those on her side would have realized she’d been taken down.

    btw… i would not back away from that statement: spread the wealth around. nor would i back away from ACORN.

    just be fucking honest: ACORN is a great idea and has done v. good things but yeah, there were a few hiccups and they need to be addressed.

    another btw: single payer health care sponsored by our tax dollars is, to my way of thinking, spreading the wealth.

    if we ever regain our footing in public education, that is also spreading the wealth.

    i’ll be a lot more at ease when we learn how to turn this shit around. that’s why the Bill Ayers thing worked so well… Obama did not step away from it, but in a very confident way dismantled it by confronting it.

  6. I’ve been off the Net for a while because of financial stuff (no surprise there–right?), but I’m back now (somewhat).

    Hey, I’m not familiar with WFTV.  Anybody care to educate me on this?
