Day Three Donkey vs. Elephant

June 12, 2008

Today in politics with The Daily Kos. Obama’s campaign will have staffers in all 50 states. This isn’t very far fetched since, as was mentioned in class, the prolonged democratic primaries took both candidates to every state. They just left their staffers there in preparation for the elections. Speaking of democratic primaries, Hillary supporters who are thinking of switching to McCain are mocked. Bush is tweaked because of his surprise at rising gas prices three months ago. Obama being labeled the most liberal senator by Boren is discussed and debunked. McCain is accused of not caring if troops are brought home. Finally Kucinich’s push for Bush’s impeachment is discussed.

 

In Instapundit today Obama is mocked as an economic flip flopper. Webb is described as a poor potential running mate. Finally though we have some convergence as far as story topics go. Kucinish calling for Bush’s impeachment is mocked in a very short post. Obama being labeled liberal by Boren is briefly mentioned but no real time is spent on the post. Aside from that, the importance of vitamin D is discussed. Rounding out today’s conversation we look into whether Asian’s, as a minority, are held to a higher standard than other groups when it comes to college admissions. Until we meet again tomorrow for right vs. left.
