Conflucians Say- Tonight at 10PM EST

I know you all will be glued to your TV’s, waiting for McCain to speak the magic words {{snort!}}  But if you’ve got a DVR, set it and join us at 10PM EST at Conflucians Say.  We’re now a part of NO WE WON’T/PUMA Radio along with Sheri T and Darragh Murphy.  (Gotta stick together)  On tonight’s show, we’ll recap Palin’s speech, talk about how close the delegate count *really* was and take your calls about any damn thing you want to talk about related to politics.

See you there!

Oo! Oo!  Almost forgot!  You can catch Our View with Patsy and Sugar tonight at 9PM EST (that’s NOW!) on NQR.  Highly recommended.

Update: Guys, check out what just arrived in my inbox.  Poor widdle Barack Obama is getting beaten up by a pitbull with lipstick.  Tsk-Tsk:

Riverdaughter (not my real name) —

Why would the Republicans spend a whole night of their convention attacking ordinary people?

With the nation watching, the Republicans mocked, dismissed, and actually laughed out loud at Americans who engage in community service and organizing. [editorial comment from Seriously:“Women are fair game, just don’t for the love of god, ridicule the community organizers! Anything but that!”]

Our convention was different. We gave the stage to everyday Americans who hunger for change and stepped up to make phone calls, knock on doors, and raise money in small amounts in their communities…

What you didn’t hear from the Republicans at their convention is a single new idea about how to make the healthcare system work, get our economy moving for the middle class, or improve education.

Just attacks — on me, and on you.

But what the McCain attack squad doesn’t understand is that people like you — who devote part of their busy lives to organizing and building their communities — have the power to change this country.

With your help, that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

Barack Obama

Yes, we *do* have the power to change this country.  And the first place we’re going to start is with holding the DNC accountable for the disgrace that was the Democratic National Convention.  But, Jeez, Louise, whining is SOOO unattractive in a presidential candidate.  She was mean to you?  Suck it up, Barack.  Snark is the least of your problems when you’re dealing with two wars, Russian invasions, tanking stock markets, hurricanes, and PUMAs.

Better toughen up.  The Republicans are just playing with their food right now.
