John McCain’s campaign is demanding that the Los Angeles Times release a video of a party for a prominent Palestinian activist that Barack Obama attended in 2003.
The Times described the going-away party for former University of Chicago professor, and Obama friend, Rashid Khalidi, in a story in April. The story reported that Palestinians thought they might have a friend in Obama because of his friendships in that community, despite the fact that his positions have never been particularly pro-Palestinian.
“A major news organization is intentionally suppressing information that could provide a clearer link between Barack Obama and Rashid Khalidi,” said McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb, citing Obama’s friendship with Khalidi, who is now a professor at Columbia University.
He said the video could, among other things, show how Obama responded to a poem recited at the party accusing Israel of “terrorism” and warning of consequences for U.S. support for Israel, which Goldfarb described as “hate speech.”
“The election is one week away, and it’s unfortunate that the press so obviously favors Barack Obama that this campaign must publicly request that the Los Angeles Times do its job — make information public,” he said.
Mountain Sage is tracking this ground breaking video across the net. Obamatrons and Time-Warner keep trying to kill it and take it down, but it keeps popping back up.
She has also looked up all the links to the info contained in the video…
Seriously… reviewing this material is one of the most important things you can do this electoral season.
This is Moveon.org’s new campaign ad for Obama. I have never ever seen a more vacuous or inane advertizement for a political campaign ever. There is ZERO substance to it. It says absolutely NOTHING.
God damn it, this makes me friggin crazy. There is no substance to this man or his campaign.
You might as well say “Vote for Obama cause he makes you tingly in the pants.”
Is this what we are reduced to?
And Republicans were too stupid to figure out that Steven Colbert was parody and had him speak at the White House Correspondents Dinner… ohhh, the memories….
I miss those days… too bad the party f’d it all up.
UPDATE – Apparently this is a new advertizement…. and the first political ad to ever appear on MTV. Very interesting…
I Love This Guy.
Basically, if the US makes the conversion to 100% carbon free electricity generation, it solves all our nations problems…
The economy, the environment and national security… and you know what? He is most probably right.
It seems Erwin Huber, the head of the German CSU party, has joined Merkel and other prominent German politicians to say “NObama” to his request to speak at the Brandenburg Gate. Apparently, unlike David Hasselhoff, Obama is not welcome to hold an event in front of the Cold War symbol.
Huber was quoted by the BBC as saying:
“Obama didn’t do anything for German unification,” Mr Huber said.
“That’s not a criticism, but as a result there is no reason to grant him such a privilege,” he told the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.
So, I guess this proves once and for all that Obama isn’t even anywhere near as cool as David Hasselhoff and that even the Germans see thru his “Unity” schtick.
Barack… You Ain’t No Hasselhoff!!!
And now for some Hoff greatness… at the Brandenburg Gate no less…
This is why PUMA’s exist.

And Howard Dean had the friggin gaul to ask Cynthia Ruccia of Women for Fair Politics “What Sexism?”
Shame on you Mr. Dean… Shame On You!
I want MY party back!!!
