    Nothing Means Anything - By Alan Farago


    "Today, the Republican spin machine is struggling to pin the socialization-- nationalization, if you will-- of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on someone else. How dare the Republicans accuse "liberals" for being angry about the fire sale of US assets to Asia, the Middle East, and even Russia? Filled up your car at Lukoil recently? The fact is that lefties and liberals have been no where in view, except as community organizers and neighborhood activists.

    We didn't hear John McCain, last night in St. Paul, nor will Florida top donors hear Sarah Palin in Miami next week utter a solitary word of the fiscal irresponsibility that pushed the US economy into the biggest crisis since the Great Depression while making many of them a fortune in the process.

    What I heard John McCain say, was that his campaign is running away from the Republican status quo lickety-split: change we can trust. What I heard was a convention full of Republican party faithful cheering against the performance and record of their own party and against the windfall profits that enriched their top donors."

    Alan Farago: Nothing Means Anything


    A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote against the fundamental principle of America, the right of the individual to lead their life privately without the government interfering.

    What I heard is a party that realized that the nominee had fought against the enrichment of corrupt public officials and enriching campaign bundlers.

    Yes, he's fighting against political corruption by hiring an army of lobbyists and Karl Rove to work on his campaign. Do you really think those lobbyists don't have some other interest invested in his campaign other than wanting him to win?

    The RNC was the oddest spectacles in modern political history, it was a group criticizing themselves but pretending they were somehow separate from themselves. Freud would have loved it. I watched that Hispanic doctor talk about healthcare and John McCain and cspan showed an audience paying no attention. They knew what she said made no sense but even she should have know it.


    A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote against Polar bears.

    China's paid top dollar for our bonds, which is one reason why the 10 year bond is near a historically low yield of 3.70%, how is that a fire sale?

    Is this yet another one of those angry, tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists who'd rather rant about politicians and successful people than actually get his facts straight?
