Third Debate Recap

Today I'm going to blog about godlessness vs. atheism; belorussian independent cinema; feminist irony in the twenty-first century; and the new Glasvegas album: dark music for dark times?

Nah, only kidding. Did you know there's an election!?

Let's start with the Third Debate of the Presidential Campaign. Watch here as McCain "cleaned Obama's clock" (™ Bride of Rove):

Despite McCain's masterful performance, all the networks said Obama won. Even Fox News. Hell, if even they are in the tank for "That One", the GOP must be worried...

There is good news, tho. The Secret Service says no-one shouted "Kill Him" at that Palin rally. The journo who said he heard it got it wrong (or, if you're from Texas Hill Country, deliberately lied). So now McCain only has to be proud of those supporters who boo him for calling Obama a "decent man"; and those who think the likely next president of the USA is a socialist-arab-muslim-terrorist, morally equivalent to Obama Bin Laden.

Meanwhile, Howard Stern is shocked to learn that some black folks will vote for Obama even if they're lied to and told Obama (like McCain) is anti-abortion and wants to stay the course in Iraq.

Imagine how shocked he'll be when he learns that some white folks are gong to vote for Obama anyway, even after they're told he's a socialist who hangs around with terrorists.

Indeed, with negative campaigning seemingly hurting McCain more than helping him, at least one Republican outfit has apparently written off the zillions they'd previously spent on ads trying to link Obama to Ayers, and are now presumably going to tell voters to tick McCain and win a pony.

Talking of fairy tales, Sarah Palin keeps insisting she's been cleared of wrongdoing in Troopergate. Is she shockingly dishonest or just functionally illiterate? Decide yourself on 4 November.

Meanwhile, here's the latest from Paranoiaville, USA:

  • "socialists/communists have discovered the only thing between them and complete world domination is Fox News"

  • Rush Limbaugh tells white folks: lock up your daughters

  • LGF readers overwhelming say McCain won the debate

    Who could argue with LGF'er kynna who authoritatively states:
    "I actually would trust this poll over most. Lizards are pretty honest and they can be very harsh critics, as well. They won't vote for McCain just because they'd rather see him win the election."
"What a terrible thing it is to lose one's mind", as I think Sarah Palin once said.
