McCain’s play for PA. Tyrrell slams the media monkeys. This is getting creepy. Plus more.

As a Pennsylvanian born and raised, I want to shout that Quin Hillyer’s prescription for winning Pennsylvania is spot on.
C’mon John, Get it ON!

What is that attractive, vibrant Conservative doing in that
Pennsylvania photo flanked by a Moderate and a Left Wing Liberal?

Re: R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.’s The Shoddiest Coverage Ever:
First of all, you are making two entirely incorrect statements when you refer to today’s media [so called] as the “mainstream media.” Number one, they are no longer mainstream and number two, they are not media. Media implies journalism and journalistic ethics.
We have today organizations such as The Dallas Cowboy
with pom-poms and short-shorts] as well as other cheerleader squads. What use to be called the mainstream media should now be referred to as The Illinois Senator’s Cheerleaders. The only thing missing are the pom-poms and short-shorts [not that I want to see Ms. Couric in short-shorts]. I cringe at the image.
Bottom line folks, America no longer has a “mainstream”

Has anyone at Spectator heard anything about a lawsuit in the state of Hawaii which Obama was supposed to answer to by October 22, concerning his citizenship status? (speaking of shoddy coverage) It was Martin vs. State of HI or Governor of HI. The plaintiff was seeking an order to have Obama disclose family records and citizenship documentation.
I think it’s highly coincidental that he’s visiting his sick
grandmother this week in Hawaii. I am trying to get this to as
many news venues as possible so that someone might investigate

Re: Christopher Orlet’s Creepier and Creepier:
You won’t believe this…and I don’t blame you…but…a few days ago, as I watched a televised segment of an Obama speech, I noted the glazed-over eyes, and the “Stepford wives”-like facial expressions of the audience on the stage behind him…and I thought… this must be what Eric Hoffer was talking about way back when. I didn’t understand what he was saying when I read him then, but I surely do now.
We are in deep trouble, and may the force protect us…and as
I’ve pleaded before, don’t send a relative, come Yourself!

I suspect that for otherwise intelligent and rational people like
Hitchens and Buckley, Barack Obama is the beautiful but crazy
femme fatale who they know will lead them to ruin, but whom they
still cannot resist. Remember the Steely Dan hit, Do It Again?

Re: George Neumayr’s The Unholy Triumvirate:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
