mccain's attempt to cover his bald is kinda desperate..

From previous thread:

Staff... will that $5 a day to Eaton come from your shared Scientology marketing revenues??

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!



The "Bob Errey" jersey is owned by Coffeytalk's brother if I remember correctly.

No way in hell am I watching this debate. My mind is already made up on being confused on whom to vote for.

Raybin said...

Officially sanctioned politicsblog thread? Nice.

Raybin said...

Although I was just coming by to type out my Deep Thoughts about last night's game...and I see this thread is up and my thunder is stolen because who reads one thread down?

Me = stunned

CBlog = deprived!

Dr. Turkleton said...

who has time to watch a debate when there are 5 games on TV tonight?...now, if I was guaranteed to witness a Godard v. Cote event [or more like Chelios v. Laraque] break out on stage...I might tune in.


raybin...WTF?

fire your DT's about the game on this one!...I, for one, would like to see 'em. I'm sure it would still beat about 98.6% of the drivel that will surely follow dealing with politics/debateblog.


Where's the countdown clock detailing when Beech is officially off the payroll?

brett said...

Obama would have to jump up and down on the podium and call white people crackers and punch a baby to lose this election now. CNN now projects Virginia is leaning Obama's way, and McCain would have to now win every single battleground state left in order to have a shot.

FireFox said...

I gotta say that I am proud of the people here. We have a post that just invites politial bitch-fighting and no one has lowered themselves to that level. There is a local news site I look at that has comments. This site is where the single largest concentration of bitter, hateful people exist. Somehow some jackass will manage to bring politics into a story that has nothing to do with it. Personally I am sick of hearing all these militant people telling me how bad the other party is.

Fuck it, I am writing in Buries It for my vote!

dying alive said...

The "Bob Errey" jersey is owned by Coffeytalk's brother if I remember correctly.

Seriously? If that is the case, Coffeytalk's brother rules the earth.

crmzak said...

All I have to say is this - if the republican party thinks I'm going to vote VAG just cuz I have one, they can shove that "we can do it" poster up their ass.

If I had to vote vag for vag's sake, I'd write in someone like Lisa Lampanelli, Danica McKellar or Juliya from Slave to the Metal.

jefe p said...

its tough for me to vote this year being a racist sexist and ageist.

The Goon Blogger said...

LOL! This can only end with mayhem for C-Blog, I for one will be making popcorn and enjoying the show.

Tony Little said...

Too bad we couldn't write in Malkin... those State of the Union addresses would be second-to-none.

debrisslide said...

Does this mean we get to make comments like "WOAH MASSIVE SAVE BY MCCAIN" or "OBAMA MOVING DOWN THE LEFT WING, HIS WRIST SHOT GOES WIDE OF THE NET"?

meecrofilm said...

Northwest, hahahaha. Priceless.

The Goon Blogger said...

Sarah Palin still woozy from getting pummeled by boos in Philadelphia.

dying alive said...

This will be my only political post ever, and it's really less about politics and more about stupidity. What really irritates me is that in going for the VAG vote (and the evangelical vote), they skipped over the hundreds of women in politics who are intelligent and qualified and picked this vapid twat. I wasn't voting Republican anyway, but thanks for setting an entire gender back fifty years. Asshats.

Billkamm said...

that's nothing. Obama thinks there are 57 states.

The Goon Blogger said...

Haha! Classic!

dying alive said...

Paul Mara just got tossed out of the Rags/Sabres game for sucker punching some schmuck. Five minute major + game misconduct.

Rage said...

I'd have Sarah Palin's illegitimate babies.

brett said...

billkamm,

Touche.

Rage said...

@d.a.-that was more of a sucker-beating

TheNWChica said...

Yeah....

Gee, I think we'll gas up the Chicamobile this weekend and drive over to New Hampshire. It's just a hop, skip and a jump from Seattle, donchaknow! *headdesk*

The Big K said...

The thought of Sarah Palin as VP or President makes my stomach ache in laughter.

So blatantly stupid.

Maybe the appearance in Philadelphia rubbed off on her a bit?

Rage said...

OH, not for the faint of heart, btw...

The Goon Blogger said...

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry at that link rage...

Zach said...

@big k

Too bad you have to be 18 to vote huh?

Pretty much everyone in this election sucks. It doesn't matter who wins.

Zach said...

@rage..

That site is all business. Great stuff.

Stilly said...

Fuck me. The last two zach posts were me.

Rage said...

I laughed till I cried, the actually I started thinkin about here sayin all that with that HAWT accent...bwahahahaha. That's our buddy Vern's blog. You guys gotta see the Max Starks entry

wilsmith said...

I can't wait to not vote.

Joose said...

I'm pumped for the debate!

I wouldn't mind seeing a physical fight break out.

Rage said...

wow...maybe I didn't hydrate after running enough...or maybe I just have late onset dyslexia

Stilly said...

Rage... the Max Starks contract buyout post is the stuff dreams are made of.

why not?

just reposting what billkcamm posted, to get the point across that it happens on both sides.

The Big K said...

@ zach-

I may not be 18, but I'm old enough to have an opinion. I like McCain and Obama both, actually, and think they'd both do an OK job, but Palin is insanely unqualified.

BlacknGold66 said...

Call to arms Cblog:

This is really obscure... but does anyone know the name of the song the Pens used for the opening for last year?

I need both the "comic book" opening song and the one they used prior to that (as best described as the one where the guy just yells "AAAAH UUAAAAH EEEAAAAH")

I'm terrible with music if you haven't noticed. I look at Raybin's picture and think "Now that Robert Johnson is an up-and-coming performer!" .... seriously.

BlacknGold66 said...

If it helps any

On of the songs I'm looking for is at the 2:42 mark and on in this video.

Pens 07-08 Home Opener Video

dying alive said...

The comic book song is Knights of Cydonia by Muse.

kstewy16 said...

John McCain is a fucking retard. Can he please just answer a single fucking question without bringing up some other bullshit with no truth to it?
Moderator:
"What will you do to get rid of budget deficit"

McCain:
"Well first, Obama is a terrorist, second that damn n*gger is a stinkin islamo nutjob, third, DRILL BABY DRILL!"

dying alive said...

Ah...the other one is Club Foot by Kasabian.

slush said...

bng- is one of them "Sweetness" by Jimmy Eat World?

I know they played that during warm-ups last year.

Nailer News said...

Obama is on the left wing,
McCain is on the right wing,
While most of America just wants someone to play center.

We have over 300,000,000 people in the US and this is the best we could do.

scaredblog.

slush said...

Nm. After listening, nope. I dont know who that is. sorry.

fleuryous said...

THE RANGERS: 5-1


YEP, they lost. haha


For anyone not watching the debate, Silence of the Lambs in on Encore-something.

"IT PUTS THE LOTION ON ITS SKIN."

BlacknGold66 said...

Thanks DA!

iPod for road trips to Pens games = updated.

kstewy16 said...

hahaha john McCain just got owned, when obama began speaking about the $0 fine to "joe the plumber" McCain had that "were losing 7-0, our star player just got injured, and i'm going to be fired" look on his face.
What a bitch.

Rage said...

Actually, they both just look terribly bored with the whole "debate" and are probably wishing they were at home watching Center Ice

Dr. Turkleton said...

any word if Oren is trying to convince Smith or Kolzig to wear a mask like this to promote Saw 5? [I'm sure some kinda Roberts-like bonus would be involved]

kstewy16 said...

haha, yeah, if I had center ice, i wouldn't be watching them, so I'm sure they are wishing they were watching it as well.

Rage said...

Hey dr turk-is that Vladamir Putin? Because of that douche-nozzle I will never again see a SAW anything ever

J.S. said...

@kstewy, easy Hitler. Not a big fan of the N word being thrown around.

@zach, 18 or not, you have it right. No matter who wins, we lose. Yes, I'll admit to leaning one way for the election, but at the end of teh day I'm not happy with either one of these numbnuts. I wish I could say "When in doubt, vote 'em out", but neither one are the incumbent C-i-C right now.

@brett, think I either mentioned it here or maybe another board that I post on, but Chicago during the national anthem = awesome. Dude's voice is straight up powerful, and to hear the crowd getting behind him gets the JS seal of approval (not that it needed it or anything). For those not familar with it, youtube Chicago's All Star Game and look for the anthem. A very similar enviroment, from what I saw the other night, and from what somebody else told me, it's been like that since the mid 80s.

[Me]

kstewy16 said...

Is it just me or is McCain losing a shit load of votes by not just saying "Yes, I would appoint a judge that is against Roe V. Wade."

Cus all this talking he is doing is just boring people out of the answer and making people wonder why he doesn't just answer the fucking question.

TheNWChica said...

Phillies up 5-0 at the end of the 5th.

Maddux came in from the pen.

Rafael Furcal had 3 errors in one inning.

[Bring on the Rays]

Rage said...

I just saw one of the dumbest moves by a goalie EVER(potentially) by Tim "The Jobber" Thomas in OT of Bos v Mon

kstewy16 said...

J.S.
That was McCain speaking not me, he's the fascist, i'm on the left wing, Hitler was a right winger, kinda like McCain and the rest of the republicans.

I'm not a big fan of the n word either, thats why i'm criticizing McCain for using it, not that he did, but i'm sure he's thinking about using it hahaha

J.S. said...

and I'm guessing Staff went looking for the most pissed off photo of each candidate.

Nice work.

[Orpik/Potash '08]

J.S. said...

@kstewy, in that case sorry about that.

I'd delete the post, but it's already responded to, and I'm responding to that post, etc.

-1 to me for misreading your post.

Dr. Turkleton said...

rage...

kinda looks like it, huh?...I saw a trailer for Saw V and at the end saw: WWJD?....I was lookin' for a pic on Gore that had it and it got me thinkin' that maybe Oren is a tPB/cblog reader.

[saw,saw,seesaw]

kstewy16 said...

Brooksie and Scoods are both from USA aren't they? I suppose you upset voters could write them in... I would probably die if while watching CNN I saw something like...
Obama 52%
McCain 44%
Nader 3.999%
Orpik/Scuderi .001%

bayonetwork said...

kstewy look for that in the next election when i can vote.

TheNWChica said...

I would so vote for a FreeCandy/Scuds ticket!

jefe p said...

im watching this debate stuff, but simply cant focus with my short attention span.

kstewy16 said...

I sure hope someone is on their way over to CafePress right now making a Free Candy Scoods 08 shirt, cus hell yeah i'm buying one hahaha.

dying alive said...

Whitney is also American. He can be secretary of Totally Freaking Adorable.

...What?

TheNWChica said...

@DA: With some new players this year, we're gonna need to fill some of the positions we had set last year. If not Scuds for adorable, I would vote for Rusty or Cookie.

kstewy16 said...

.....What?
haha, yeah we could create a Free Candy, Scoods, Whit Oligarchy '08!!!!!

TheNWChica said...

Oh wait...I just read what I wrote. Never mind...I need to find dinner. *facepalm*

fleuryous said...

I want a shirt that says "B(r)ing it."


I'd so buy that shirt.

It'd be worth it. haha

homesprout said...

Just sayin'.....

Raybin said...

Here for all CBloggers who missed it, I have a transcript prepared

McCain: "blahblahblah right wing nonsense blah blah blah"

Obama: "Blah blah blah ever so slightly left of center stupidity blah blah blah"

There, I just saved y'all the most boring two fucking hours of your life that doesn't involve the Devils playing the Bruins.

The Big K said...

Boy would it be disappointing if the Phillies won the World Series.

It's just so much fun making fun of that city... I'd hate to see it end.

TheNWChica said...

Except that for this Phillies fan, I would be very happy.

Of course, their hockey team is a bunch of fucking trash; but just for one season, I would be very happy since every team in my state sucks and not in that fun way!

kstewy16 said...

I know, I hate the Phillies, but a buddy of mine from philly put in some bets to a bookie for the phillies, and he said if he wins he's getting tickets to Pens @ Flyers, and I'm goin for free! So go Philly! I wanna get spit on and made fun of and swore at....untill we win, then I'll just get beat up, but thats alright! It'll be fun!

Raybin said...

I would be very happy since every team in my state sucks and not in that fun way!

Yes, but you've got JIM MORA waiting in the wings next season!!!!

FEEL THE SUCCESS, SEATTLE

Raybin said...

You are in Seattle, right nwchica?

dying alive said...

According to LGP, the following people should be traded/sent to WBS/released/shot on sight: Jordan Staal, Miroslav Satan, Ruslan Fedotenko, Hal Gill, Darryl Sydor, Kris Letang. Pascal Dupuis was on this list before last night.

The following players are not pulling their weight FOUR whole games into the season: Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin.

Also, there are no less than two threads on the front page about trading for Gaborik.

Raybin said...

Can we find a Pied Piper to lead the LGP posters away into the forest where they can never post again?

TheNWChica said...

I am Raybin, or actually about 25 miles north. The only team with a winning record is the Spokane Chiefs WHL club, and we hate them here in Everett! lol

I'm not sold on Mora...but I'll just have to see what he can do. Too bad he took the Hawks job...that Huskies job that he said that he wanted might be opening up soon.

TheNWChica said...

Also, there are no less than two threads on the front page about trading for Gaborik.

The Goblin doesn't need to be traded to the Pens; but he does need to get his ass traded out of the NW division!

stokes said...

Everyone should do themselves a favor and not read LGP. There's not a whole lot of intelligent thought over there, and really, its just not worth reading or getting all worked up about.

Food for thought: if they know everything about hockey, why are they the ones sitting in front of a computer commenting on a website and not running an NHL hockey team instead?

LGP will not exist once all their lemmings jump off the bridge.

I never go to LGP...because I respect myself...and the Pens organization.


WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. haha.

nice fleuryous... nice. ;)

Boredom has finally forced me into a photobucket account and an online motivational poster generator

I could waste HOURS doing this. How the hell did I not manage this before?

I've already got a Richards/Briere one, a Jose Theodore one and am contemplating an Ovechkin.

Tooooo much fun.

Here's a shock--I'm ducking politicsblog. No point. South Park is on. Much more entertaining.

brett said...

@ the big k,

I like McCain and Obama both, actually, and think they'd both do an OK job, but Palin is insanely unqualified.

I agree with you in general. The problem though, is that McCain was the one who chose Palin. That's not country first. That's irresponsible. And I don't want her having any shot at being in power.

J.S. said...

No matter who they play, this is why Philly won't win the WS.

William Penn!!

TheFandangler said...

It's funny hearing people say Palin is so unqualified.

What the eff has Alobama man done besides blow a lot of smoke up a lot of buttholes.

Alobama man goes to the bowling alley where he chews tobacco and drinks heavily.

Docciavelli said...

@js

Yeah, the owner of Comcast put a replica William Penn on top of the new Comcast Tower in order to break the curse. Someone forgot to tell him it wasn't because Penn wasn't on the tallest building anymore--it's because Philadelphians are dicks that God hates.

TheFandangler said...

Doc was def right...

Fuck the debate. SP was on and is much better.

....hence the "Alabama man reference"

Docciavelli said...

[not all people from Alabama are wife beaters]

But seriously. New Hampshire...here in the Northwest? ughhhhhh Epic Fail like that "MAKLIN" jersey.

millvalemauler said...

we can all agree we're fucked, because both parties LOVE to give us stupid candidates. Obama is as crooked as they come in politics. He did so much bullshit in chicago. McCain is... i dunno where to even go. Neither one of them answers a question.

Unless Ron Paul wins the election. (WRITE HIM IN!) It is going to be a miserable 4 years. Want a welfare state vote for Obama. Want war for another 4 years vote for McCain.


Malkin will elect Ovechkin's face into the boards again.

Pens win 5-3

Rage said...

I would dearly love to see Malkin destroy Ovechkin.

All right, that settles it. She is Dan Quayle.

debrisslide said...

Dude, you guys have actually been running politicsblog. . .bad idea. I'm so disillusioned with this fucking election. It won't even stand a chance of feeling real again. I mean I know who I'm voting for, why would I want to talk about it in cblog? Jesus.

btw Orpik/Potash 08 is solid. Someone should really make a sign if they're going to the game tonight!

dying alive said...

its just not worth reading or getting all worked up about.

I don't think anyone is getting worked up about it. I think it's kind of amusing, personally.

Dan said...

i'm voting for this guy

Stilly said...

My thoughts on this cblog:

@Big K: You can indeed have an opinion. But you know what the say about opinions and assholes.

@millvalemauler: Absolutely agreed. Those are our options. And you're going to have your rights abused under both of em. I'm actually registered Democrat (blue collar Dem, not asshole hippie liberal Dem), so I couldn't vote for Ron Paul in the primaries. Just remember that a write in for Ron Paul is basically a vote for Obama. I don't know if you're leaning left in this election, but that's the situation.

Orpik/Scuderi '08 is a stellar ticket.

@ whoever was talking about Hitler: Hitler was about as socialist as they came. He nationalized everything. Sounds pretty lefty to me. Also, just because someone is Republican doesn't make them racist.

@Raybin: I didn't watch the debate, but I know your recap is accurate. Presidential debates mean less than preseason hockey.

JYo said...

In case it hasn't been posted yet, here is my contribution to politicsblog.

Matt said...

It's too bad not a single player on the Penguins can actually be elected president. The only player who's 35 or older is Sydor, and he's from Canada. Since no one's eligible, why limit ourselves to the American players?

[Still voting for Free Candy though]

J.S. said...

Who wanted a Orpik/Potash election sign?

click to make your own

kstewy16 said...

Well if your gonna stick to the age limit as well as nationality, we could do a Shero Potash write in...

Or we could just stick with the Free Candy Potash and let some suit wearing jackass in washington try and tell Orpik he can't be pres cus he isn't old enough. Yeah, that would go over well.
