"Poll finds Europeans favor Obama over McCain in US
WASHINGTON: Despite some optimism in 12 European countries that Democrat Barack Obama could improve relations with Europe if elected president, most Europeans polled in a survey released Wednesday do not want closer ties with the United States.
"Whether it’s the right or the left, there’s always plenty of hypocrisy to go around when it comes to the opinion makers in the media. The objective is always to win the argument presented today, without regard for what has been done or said in the past," says Ron Shimshock of Freeople. So true! As promised, here is the second…
Stephen Frank of the Ventura County Star writes, "Democrats believe a woman can not get a job unless government sets quotas. Democrats believe minorities are too stupid to get into school without government mandates." Stephen adds, "Just as the NAACP does not consider Clarence Thomas ‘black’ enough.

I’ve been trying to hatch another Palin-related magazine spoof, because it’s fertile ground and I’m confident I’ll be able to come up with some funny concepts. But right now, almost two weeks into this festival of absurdity, it’s clear who’s ultimately responsible for how badly Obama is getting hammered this week: Obama himself. Yes, the media are not shying away from their perennial role as Bringers of the Stupid.
