Some More Donuts, There, Mr. Halperin?

About the only thing missing for Time Magazine's Mark Halperin, during his appearance yesterday on 'This Week with George Stephanopoulos', was having "McCain 08" tattooed on his forehead, and the Dead Campaign Express bus parked on set, behind him.

How much did the Rove Rats pay him to test out a new line, or, was he just putting a marker down, to get in the running to be Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain's Press Secretary, should the sky fall in this Fall?

Halperin must be covering the campaign that’s running in Bizzaro World, for, incredulously, he offered this honed, priceless observation, speaking of the McCain Dementia on not knowing how many houses he owns, and the Obama Campaign seizing the opportunity for teeing up a few long balls with it.

From Think Progress;

HALPERIN: My hunch is this is going to end up being one of the worst moments in the entire campaign for one of the candidates but it’s Barack Obama. […] I believe that this opened the door to not just Tony Rezko in that ad, but to bring up Reverend Wright, to bring up his relationship with Bill Ayers.

What's next, that, Halperin goes out a limb, puts his (or what's left of it) professional reputation on, that, maybe, that Phelps kid has a chance to pick up a medal or two in the Olympics?

Jesus, this comes from a Time Magazine writer?

I wouldn't mind seeing the magazine take a poll with their interns, and see if any of their assessments match Halperin's.

If anyone has been awake, even for a few minutes, over the past few months, they wouldn't be able to avoid the garbage that McCain and his Rove Rats have been hurling at Obama.

Kevin Drum;

t really does make you wonder what planet Halperin is living on. Last month McCain hired Karl Rove protege Steve Schmidt, and since then he's run ads mocking Obama's celebrity, charged (repeatedly) that Obama puts his career ahead of his country, pretended that Obama had refused to visit wounded soldiers unless the press was along, run an ad saying that Obama was responsible for high gas prices, and conspicuously declined to comment on Jerome Corsi's bestselling claim that Obama is really a secret Muslim. At this point, who cares how McCain "says he's going to run his campaign"? Halperin can look at McCain's actual campaign and see what kind of campaign he's running. It's been sunk in the gutter for weeks now.
If the Stumblin' Bumblin' McCain Campaign becomes any more negative, any more nastier, they'll do a disservice to the Right Wing Freak Show - they'll make them look liberal.

Can someone offer a prize, something good, to the first photographer who grabs the shot of Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain delivering a coffee and a box of donuts to Halperin.

Help Me Mr. Wizard!
