You may recall I blogged this image by Obey, a few weeks ago.
Well, a nice twist came out today.
Sorry the quality’s so poor, but that’s the credit crunch for ya.

Thanks to Will Atkinson for providing me with this gem.
Not only is this very funny and a genius pastiche but it is a very true take on our current zeitgeist (yeah I know but it’s the right word.)
For those of you who don’t remember the vernacular hogging original it was truly the talk of the water cooler in 2000.

Is this the end in sight for McCain?
For one of the Republicans’ most respected figures to publicly put his faith in the opposition raises a great deal of doubt about the credibility of McCain’s challenge and the fact that he says it’s because McCain chose Palin as his running mate says it all.
What’s more he feels Obama could be a transformational world figure.

More disrespect from McCain to Obama. He’s doing nothing to win over undecided voters with shit like this.

Ouch. McCain is disrespectful in the extreme to Obama in this week’s debate..

So, US congress reluctantly votes to bail out the world economy by getting tax payers to pay for Wall Street’s greed.
Meanwhile in the UK, the Labour party nationalises Bradford and Bingley witn taxpayers’ money.
Any thoughts on who lost out in all this greed?
Here’s a clue. It wasn’t anyone in the City or on Wall Street because lost jobs or otherwise, they’re all right Jack.

This woman knows how to work an audience.
It’s three minutes in before she actually speaks.
A mix of schmaltz, warmongering bollocks and good old US of A.
She’s a star but one’s flesh creeps.
It’s too early to call this given she’s in her (and her daughter’s impending) honeymoon period. But the Republican conservatism and right wing cack is clearly a fully integrated part of her dogma.
It’s a sideshow I feel.

Just when we all thought Obama had nailed it (short of assasination) McCain pulls a rabbit out of the hat.
Now, this is an interesting development.
Sarah Palin has a CV to die for.
She’s a much lauded Alaskan Governor. Check.
She’s a Christian. Check.
She’s an ex beauty queen. Check.
Obviously she’s a woman. Check.
She’s sporty. Check.
She’s in a steady and long term relationship. Check.
She’s a mother of five. Check.
One of her kids is going to Iraq in a few months. Check.
One of them is disabled. Check.
However the whole thing is all a bit random. McCain has only met her once so one could hardly describe this as a meeting of minds. She makes Obama look blessed with foreign affairs acumen and she’s called her kids Track, Piper, Bristol, Willow and Trig. (!)
I’m looking forward to this…

You live through the last ten years of lying politics and suddenly things go a bit tingly.
Barak Obama is undoubtedly the most exciting introduction to the Western political world since Clinton (Mr , not Mrs) and some.
And in Scotland we are graced by Alex Salmond.
In between times Bush bombs; yes, I know, it’s a pun.
Brown just goes pear-shaped – but what can you expect when his boss/predecessor was an inveterate liar?
So. Bring it on. The Presidential election I mean. Because, although I am massively predisposed to Obama, I think we all need to see the debate unfold.

You wonder whether the fight to beat Clinton has taken too much out of him. OK, America probably wants a break from conservatism, and McCain is about as enticing as Hilda Ogden in a rainstorm but it’s still a big ask.
And, oh it’s been a right riveting nomination campaign.
But let’s not forget he is black and there is a mountain of opposition to that.
However, I think it is a rather exciting political development and that he is, potentially, the man.
Bring it on.
(This is clearly the sort of post that one might look back on in years to come as supremely visionary or supremely foolish. Pray God it is the former.)
