The San Francisco Chronicle speculates that Barack Obama could lose Colorado -- and the presidency -- if Mitt Romney is John McCain's VP. Why? Because 7% of people in Colorado are Mormon. That's like saying Obama will lose everyone who likes McDonalds if John McCain chooses Mayor McCheese as his running mate. The truth of the matter, which conveniently is never mentioned in the Chronicle's article, is that Mormons are overwhelmingly Republican to begin with. Even if there are some Mormons who would have voted Obama if Romney was not the VP nominee, those people have got to be numbered in the single digits.

Oakland is undergoing a terrible crime wave...or is it? Regardless, the media tells us it is, and the takeover robbery problem is real. However, everyone in the media is apparently too stupid to connect the takeover robbery problem with the millions of dollars that are missing from Oakland's finances. Here's a thought: maybe we are having a crime wave because the city is blowing all that crime prevention money on embezzlement?

Finally, thank god that the Olympics have mercifully ended. Watching a grown man run or swim is about the last thing on Earth I'd care to do. Thank god we spent all this money making China seem legitimate instead of using it to help poor people. Good to know our priorities are straight, as always.

War Returns

It's been over 800 days since the last post on the War on Corporate Evil. The war is back.

In the past 800 days, a lot of things have happened. Not much of it has been good, but let's briefly summarize. 4134 Americans have now died in Iraq. The Democrats retook Congress in 2006. They've spent most of the last two years quietly fighting the Bush agenda while being villified from both the right and the left. The left wants Bush impeached, Rumsfeld charged with war crimes, and Cheney sent to prison for life without possibility of parole. The right hates Nancy Pelosi, gay marriage, and anything Congress does. No one's happy with Congress.

Now we have a new villain, but he's clearly not as convincing as the last one. John McCain is to Bush sort of like Tommy Lee Jones is to Jack Nicholson in the Batman movies. John McCain is a complete joke. Obviously I respect his war service, just like I like puppies and babies. That's not the point. Everything he has done since has been pure evil. He is worse than George Bush because he talks as if he were some sort of "maverick." The truth is that he is just another Republican, in favor of lower taxes, ending social programs, going to war, and hating gay people.

So why does the War on Corporate Evil return? Because John McCain is the worst thing since "Joey" on NBC. He has to be stopped. Barack Obama is the finest presidential candidate that the Democratic Party has had in my entire life. He can change this country and put us on the right track. We need him.

Mr. McCain, the War on Corporate Evil challenges you to a duel. Blogposts at dusk. We'll be seeing you often and soon.
