Ron Popeil: the greatest salesman of all time!

John McCain: "Hello, Ron? Remember you marketed me with that 'Maverick' bullshit? Can you market my VP ditz Sarah Palin the same way? I don't know, call her the 'Maverickette' or something. She's the governor of Alaska, yeah. I know she never called herself 'the Maverick', that's your job! Just DO IT, Ron, MAKE IT HAPPEN!!! We got the Republican Corporate Media covered, the phrase will be she "HELD HER OWN" at the debates last night. I know, Ron, I know she looked like a scary robot with lipstick on last night! Yes, I know she's a bimbo. Yes, I know she said 2 dozen meaningless cliches. What else can we do about it, except say she "HELD HER OWN"? Look, Ron, just make the 'Maverick' bullshit work for her, too, I'll take care of the media talking points. The American Idiots will buy this, you're doing a good job, Ron, you and Karl Rove..."

Sen. Joe Biden: “He voted four out of five times for George Bush’s budget, which put us a half a trillion dollars in debt this year and over $3 trillion in debt since he’s got there. He has not been a maverick in providing health care for people. He has voted against—he voted including another 3.6 million children in coverage of the existing health care plan, when he voted in the United States Senate. He’s not been a maverick when it comes to education. He has not supported tax cuts and significant changes for people being able to send their kids to college. He’s not been a maverick on the war. He’s not been a maverick on virtually anything that genuinely affects the things that people really talk about around their kitchen table.”

Ladies and gentlemen! Contestant no. 8!!! Very nice!!! Ready to tackle the financial crisis, Al Qaeda, and the Iraq & Afghanistan Wars!!! Very nice!!!

"Sarah says she wants to prepare for a career in television broadcasting by majoring in telecommunications and political science. It is no wonder that she has also been recognized by 'Who's Who?' since she has displayed her leadership in all areas, from academics to student politics to athletics... Ladies and gentlemen, contestant no. 8, Sarah Heath."

YOU are an IDIOT!!!

George Farah, executive director and founder of Open Debates. He is the author of No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates.

JUAN GONZALEZ: Tonight, Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri will host the first and only vice-presidential debate between Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Delaware Senator Joseph Biden. The debate will be moderated by Gwen Ifill of PBS.

Senator McCain and Governor Palin have been sowing doubts about how fair Ifill will be because of a book she’s writing that’s called Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama. The McCain campaign and right-wing pundits allege that Ifill might be biased in favor of Senator Obama.

What’s missing, however, is any concern about the fairness of the very structure of the debate. The Obama and McCain campaigns jointly negotiated a detailed contract dictating the terms of all the 2008 debates. This includes who gets to participate, as well as the topics raised during the debates. But the contract remains a secret, and the Commission on Presidential Debates, a private corporation created by the two major parties, has refused to release the contract to the public.

AMY GOODMAN: Open Debates is a nonprofit committed to democratizing the presidential debate process. Last month, Open Debates and nine other pro-democracy groups called on the Commission to make the contract public.

George Farah is the founder and executive director of Open Debates, author of No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates, joining us from Washington, D.C.

So, George, well, what are these rules tonight? What will they abide by, and who is making them?

Only Republicans try an disenfranchize voters, create shill groups, pay people to cheer them in shill crowds, etc...etc...

In hopes of organizing a robust demonstration for the vice presidential debate this Thursday in St. Louis, the pro-Iraq War (and ostensibly pro-McCain) organization, Vets for Freedom (bd: hmmm...they're on my "billionaire nazi media propaganda" links on the right!!!), is resorting to offering local college fraternities hundreds of dollars if their members come and hold signs.

Fake pollsters' scare tactics target Obama • Callers link candidate to Palestinian militants; • Jews and evangelicals are targeted in swing states
Remember the "New England Phone Jammer"? The Republicans paid this guy to jam phone lines of people getting rides to vote, so they couldn't vote.
