The Talibunny has forsaken him.  The Psychogeezer says he should resign. The head of the NRSC calls his conviction a “disgrace“. Even Mitch “My Old Kentucky Homo” McConnell has had enough.  But the Hulk vows to smash everything in his bid for another Senate term:

Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) is returning to Alaska tomorrow to resume his re-election campaign, “despite being convicted of felonies that carry the potential of years in prison.” “It’s not over yet!” Stevens said yesterday. “You’ve got that right,” said his wife, Catherine Stevens.

And the best part?  Ted can’t even vote for himself

That’s a voter purge we can be proud of, my friends.

An update from The General after the jump:

You know, I was worried about the one line from the Geezer that did not have to do with Joedaplumbah. Emphasis on was.

Strike ’em out, throw ’em out. But, of course, this is a NEGATIVE AD, so Barry is just an awful, awful person, just like Rep. John Lewis. (Insert your own reference to “waaaambulance” here.)

(Sidenote: hey rptrcub? Please give me Georgian Voter opinion on John Lewis. Revered as a sainted man who can do no wrong? Reviled as showboating hack with a good backstory? To the point of whether hitting John Lewis actually helps Barry in Georgia.)

Caption this … hat tip: SanFranLefty.

Compare, and discuss.

Read this — the whole thing.  For once, somebody shouting at the Geezer is actually making some sense.

John McCain: If your campaign does not stop equating Sen. Barack Obama with terrorism, questioning his patriotism and portraying Mr. Obama as “not one of us,” I accuse you of deliberately feeding the most unhinged elements of our society the red meat of hate, and therefore of potentially instigating violence.

At a Sarah Palin rally, someone called out, “Kill him!” At one of your rallies, someone called out, “Terrorist!” Neither was answered or denounced by you or your running mate, as the crowd laughed and cheered. At your campaign event Wednesday in Bethlehem, Pa., the crowd was seething with hatred for the Democratic nominee – an attitude encouraged in speeches there by you, your running mate, your wife and the local Republican chairman.

In case you were curious: a just-passing-through visit to Ladbrokes yields the following:

OUTRIGHT: Black Eagle 1:5 against, PG 10:3 against.

Black Eagle at 370+ EV is favorite among all outcomes, at 2:1.

The Geezer is the underdog in Florida and Ohio (13:8 in both), Nevada (2:1), Virginia (9:4), New Hampshaah (3:1), Wisconsin (9:2), Michigan, New Mexico and Pennsylvania (5:1), Minnesoda (6:1, ya!), and Iowa (8:1).  Barry? Slight dog in Indiana (pegged at even money, with the juice built into Geezer’s odds, on 8:11 against).  Flip those numbers for Missouri and North Carolina, with PG being a slight dog there.

Not a lot of value bets there.  But, then again, Brits will bet (and lose money to the house) on anything.

Entertainment value only, people.  (Which means it ain’t worth that much.  Just saying — drunken English punters are betting what’s left of the house on Hopey.)  Also: betting on politics here in the states is kinda sorta illegal.  Plus I wouldn’t trust off-shore betting houses as far as I can throw a pair of dice.

McCain Addresses Crowd as “My Fellow Prisoners”

Can’t post the video from the computer on this jobsite, but you can click through. I think he’s flashing back to the Hanoi Hilton.

[via Think Progress]

Per Politico, Geezerplex is going to shelve Ayers/NAH NAH NAH attacks, in favor of focusing on the economy — which of course is the Geezer’s strong point.

Of course, this won’t stop 527s from doing having at the Chicago crew. And it’s possible that Talibunny may not get the message. But still — things are getting worse for the old man, if that were even possible.

Note well, however, that there’s probably an ad or twenty already in the can on all of this. And also one about Obama’s drug use. And the whole flag-pin genre. And God knows what else. The endgame here may very well be an ad blitz in the last 72 hours in redneck sectors of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina bringing all of this shit up in a last-ditch effort to take any of those states. It may kill him nationally, but the game is in Appalachia right now for McCain — it’s his only shot.

Keep chanting this to yourselves as a mantra — THIS IS NOT OVER YET.
