Monday Morning Open Thread




Good morning.

This should be another interesting week, I’d say.

The McCain campaign, aided and abetted by many of the pundits, will have us think that if Sarah Palin can say her name correctly at the debate, she’s the winner. Palin is already an accomplished debater. But, this isn’t a game. The only “expectation” that matters is whether or not she is ready to be the next president. And, she’s not.

I’m still struck by how angry McCain was on Friday night. Refusing to look at Obama. Sneering. And, muttering under his breath. He was acting like a fifth grader. McCain should have been on best behavior, but he couldn’t control himself. He can’t control himself and is increasingly erratic. And, as I’ve been saying, “erratic” is the best word to describe John McCain, but “erratic” is the one of the worst words to describe a president.

Okay, let’s get started. And, don’t be erratic.


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
