I really want to string together an appropriate amount of pungent profanity for this crap, but I just don’t have the strength. Brian Rogers, the Geezerplex’s designated stupid spokesperson of the day, said this, per TPM:

“Barack Obama’s attacks on Americans who support John McCain reveal far more about him than they do about John McCain. It is clear that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand regular people and the issues they care about. He dismisses hardworking middle class Americans as clinging to guns and religion, while at the same time attacking average Americans at McCain rallies who are angry at Washington, Wall Street and the status quo.

“Even worse, he attacks anyone who dares to question his readiness to serve as their commander in chief. Raising legitimate questions about his record, character and judgment are a vital part of the Democratic process, and Barack Obama’s effort to silence and shame those who seek answers should make everyone wonder exactly what he is hiding.”

“Terrorist! Traitor! Etc.!” = “raising legitimate questions about his record.” I give up.

You know, nojo gave me posting privileges today, which I have attempted to not abuse. I ain’t running this show, and I have no designs on taking over nojo’s baby. But in searching for a WaMu story in Seattle, I came across this.

A Republican rebellion stalled government efforts Thursday to avoid economic meltdown, a chaotic turnaround that disrupted the choreography of an extraordinary White House meeting meant to show joint resolve from the president, the political parties and the presidential candidates. Instead, the summit broke up so bitterly that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson got on one knee before Democratic leaders in a theatrical attempt to salvage talks.

I don’t know what emotion to go with. Rage and fury are two that come to mind. But, in light of my prolific posting tonight, I’m going to go with stunned silence. With that: good night.

[Addendum, again: nojo, in the WaMu thread, found this too. It’s as if we both heard this giant rip in the cosmic plane at the same time and reacted in the same way.]
