The First Presidential Debate: Complete Footage 



My take on the debate?

I don't know how people can watch last night's debate and not see that Obama is our next president although I'm not sure it will move the polls significantly one way or another. Foreign policy is supposed to be McCain's strong suit but Obama seemed far more poised, nuanced, thoughtful and on top of the issues in general. Plus McCain just can't seem to stop lying and mischaracterizing everything Obama says, it's pathetic. This was a win for Obama in my book but I could see why some folks might score it a tie. Anyone calling this for McCain is just crazy though....

McCain's Bailout Proposal: even fewer regulations & more corporate tax cuts 



I posted a link to this last night, but I had to give this video it's own post. Dude is unbelievable - now is the time for fewer regulations and more tax cuts?? Really?? WTF?? Apparently, he didn't even do too much in his much-vaunted ride back into Washington on a horse, Benzino-style, to 'save the economy.' Anyone voting for this dude, especially the last of you disgruntled Hillary deadenders who can't bring yoursleves to vote for Obama, is a f-cking idiot.

"Here's the trailer for Let's Get Free: The Black August Hip Hop Project, featuring performance and interview footage from Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, dead prez and more.

The Black August Hip Hop Project strives to promote human rights though supporting and influencing the global development of Hip Hop culture. By facilitating exchanges between international communities where Hip Hop is a vital part of youth culture, they promote awareness about the social and political issues that affect our global communities. Their vision is to bring culture and politics together and to allow them to naturally evolve into a unique Hip Hop consciousness that informs our collective struggle for a more just, equitable and human world. This film documents the movement through a series of interviews and performances with hip hop artists and key members of the black activist movement."

They got together at Greg's hotel and quickly started brainstorming about other things they could film. An hour later this DNA video is what they came up with. All shot in a hotel room, in slow motion, and out of focus."

I think we might be hitting a tipping point? Finally!

New TV show: Roland Martin - '7 Weeks To Go' (CNN) 



From my man, Sureshot:

"Counting down to Election Day, CNN political analyst and radio talk show host Roland Martin will launch a series of specials that will challenge his guests and viewers to join him in a no-nonsense approach about what voters are actually talking about. Martin and the panelists explore how age, race and gender have played a pivotal role in this election and whether bias – instead of the issues – could be a deciding factor on Election Day. The first of the specials, “7 Weeks to Go,” will air on Saturday, Sept. 13, and Sunday, Sept. 14, at 8 pm/ET"
I f-cks with this dude. If had cable, I might even have watched this. Maybe CNN will be smart enough to syndicate it online after the fact!

Snapshot of the Economy 

McCain's 'Double-talk Express' on the Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae bailout:



Here's a preview of what four more years under McSame McCain might look like:

Skyrocketing record budget deficits.

A 200 billion dollar taxpayer-funded bail-outs of mortgage companies Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae part of which is going to underwrite exit packages for Senior execs at both companies.

Highest unemployment rate in years.

Venerable Investment Bank, Lehman Brothers in shambles.

But I guess partisan idiots like Sean Hannity just can't see it.

Sarah Palin's interview with Charles Gibson 

2-Part playlist of Gibson's interview with Palin on ABC's 'World News' yesterday via YouTube:

Commentary: Clueless Palin Peddles Cliches Under Gibson's Glare. [Bloomberg.com]

My view? Pure comedy. She didn't even know what the Bush Doctrine was and I could see her struggling to recall all the talking points she'd been tutored with while being hidden from the media since her nomination. You know what the truly scary thing is though? I don't even think it matters to most of the sheep who've fallen in love with her over the past couple weeks - they love her folksy 'Hockey Mom'-ness and probably thought she did great! Like my man Barack said while on Letterman, we are officially in the middle of political Silly Season.

How to Make the "A Milli" Beat 



Better late than never? Maybe I should've been looking for a "Swagger Like Us" video tutorial instead? Not quite as detailed as this Soulja Boy tutorial but an interesting look at the mechanics behind what will probably end up being the hip hop beat of the year nonetheless. There were other video tutorials for "A Milli" on YouTube but this one seemed to be the most thorough.

Previously:

How to make the T.I. "What You Know" beat. [from two years ago!]

"We can't kill our way to victory..." 



So says the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff , Adm. Mike Mullen about Afganistan. He also says the U.S. is "running out of time" to win the war in there. [CNN]

So on the seventh anniversary of 9/11 this is where we're at:

Bin Laden STILL not captured or dead, despite McCain claiming he has the plan on how to to do it!

Schumer sees gaps in US anti-terror efforts. [AP via Newsday]

The failure of Bush policy post-9/11 - "The "global war on terror" is over -- and we lost." [Salon]

Al Qaeda still thriving. [CNN]

Meanwhile there are hot spots in Pakistan and the former Soviet Union that the US is now stretched too thin, because of commitments in Iraq, to address militarily (if need be).

Jay shoulda spit a 16 on this though 'cos this is the kind of beat that I think might have inspired some hotter bars out of his old ass.....

John McCain's so-called 'Fact Check' TV spot 



This n-gga McCain is f-cking outrageous! The imagery in this ad is ridiculous and last time I checked, doing opposition research on your political opponents was not illegal. Maybe Obama's lawyers can do the vetting of Palin that McCain's team failed to do.

BTW: like Stephanie Cutter of the Obama campaign notes, where was McCain's outrage when one of his supporters called Hillary Clinton a b-tch at a townhall meeting during the primary season?

John McCain claims he knows how to capture bin Laden.... 



If that's true, Olbermann made a great point in his Op-Ed tonight on MSNBC: what's he waiting for then - why doesn't he advise the appropriate, responsible authorities RIGHT NOW??

More on 9/11 tomorrow....

Interior Dept. Officials Embroiled in a Sex-for-Oil Scandal 

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

From the Washington Post:

"Government officials in charge of collecting billions of dollars worth of royalties from oil and gas companies accepted lavish gifts, steered contracts to favored firms and engaged in illicit sex with employees of the energy companies, federal investigators reported today.

Investigators from the Interior Department's inspector general's office said more than a dozen employees, including the former director of the oil royalty program, accepted gifts including ski trips, sports tickets and golf outings. The report alleges that the former director, Gregory W. Smith, also arranged side deals that personally netted him more than $30,000."

Another look at the "Lipstick on a Pig" controversy 

Obama on this 'controversy' this morning:



So I have to stand corrected. Apparently this is an old political term. To wit:

John McCain calling Hillary Clinton's Healthcare campaign proposal Lipstick on a Pig. [YouTube video]

McCain again in Denver in May of this year. [YouTube video]

Dick Cheney using the Lipstick on a Pig turn of phrase during the 2004 election campaign. [YouTube video]

Lipstick on a Pig - a 2006 book by Torie Clarke, a former advisor to John McCain!

And finally, Mike Huckabee, of all people, defending Obama to Sean Hannity on Fox News. [YouTube video]

Now that I've heard the full story, like Barack said, let's put this 'phony outrage' to rest. Will that happen though? Unlikely.
