With Friends Like This ...

With Missouri one of the key races for control of the U.S. Senate, Dumbya has announced he will hit the Show-Me State on Friday to stump for Republican incumbent Jim Talent. As AP points out, Talent's reaction to the visit might be akin to unwrapping a Christmas gift, only to discover it's a fruitcake:

"Talent has largely avoided mentioning the president in stump speeches or in his television spots. Other Republicans have also shied away from Bush, whose job approval ratings are a dismal 38 percent, according to the latest Associated Press-AOL News poll.


"Seizing on Bush's low approval ratings, [Democratic candidate Claire] McCaskill's campaign has been running ads showing photos of Talent and Bush together with the words, 'Talent votes with Bush 94 percent of the time.'

"While campaigning in St. Louis on Tuesday, McCaskill was dismissive of the impact Bush's visit would have on the election, saying it 'is him wanting to appear that he can help somewhere.' "

As the nation continues to wise up about the man in the White House, this might be one of those curious instances in which the candidate not receiving help from Dumbya is more enthusiastic about the visit than the guy who is getting the help.

Maybe he should start stumping for Democrats. I mean, look at how much damage the picture of him tongue-humping Joe Lieberman ended up doing.

Jeez...you just had to bring up Lieberman, didn't you. Just remember, you started it :-)

dumbya.... oh i get it you're mean Dubya. Wow, you're original. Not.

I think you should focus some energy on Kerry's comments about military servicepeople being stupid. Now that's a "DUMBYA" remark!

Great to hear from you, Anonymous. Not. See how that works?

As for Kerry's remark, please tell me you're not buying into that "he hates the troops" crap. I mean, he was a troop. You'll have to show me where Tony Snow or George Bush or most of the people who are sniping at him served in a war. (Defending Texas from the Vietcong doesn't count.)

Besides, it's pretty clear he was saying Bush was dumb for getting us stuck in Iraq, unless you're just trying to spin gold out of bullshit.

I have to agree with Pants, Anonymous. Republicans and their apologists were just bouncing up and down with glee at the thought that Kerry might be spun into the issue, rather than having the media and voters deal with the real facts.

And did you see the Borat movie? Is that where you learned "not" jokes?

As Borat would say, "Your joke was NOT funny!"
