The latest person to endorse Barack Obama

Would you believe disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley.

What they both said was how great Foley looked, and he was particularly excited about Colin Powell's endorsement that morning of Obama. Foley said he also favors Obama.

I agree with James Joyner at OTB who writes- "Let's just say I don't believe Team Obama will be touting this one as loudly as the Powell endorsement." Who's next to come out for Obama? Senator Larry Craig?

Disclosure- While never meeting Congressman Foley, my wife Leonita and I met his parents. They were parishoners at the church we attend, where Leonita also works and got to know the Foleys who were Eucharistic Ministers like herself.

Even Foley isn't that bad. ... (Below threshold)

Even Foley isn't that bad. He's released a statement that he did NOT vote for the Fearless Leader.

Drudge has posted a disclai... (Below threshold)

Drudge has posted a disclaimer by Foley:

"An online article posted today on Variety's website innaccurately reported that I was supporting Barack Obama. The story on Variety's website, based on a second or third-hand account of my private conversation, is incorrect. I have already voted by absentee ballot in Florida. Although I didn't vote for Senator Obama, I intend to keep my choice private."

I would not belive the source that 'quoted' this story. Can you say "Gotcha"? I knew you could ;p.

Obama supporters act as if ... (Below threshold)

Obama supporters act as if the polls are a true reflection of what's going to happen on November 4th. When you don't have an actual record to run on ... and all you can do is point out problems, and blame others, as Obama has, you have to rely on gimmicks that have nothing to do with your actual ability to lead ... like early voting ...busing and indoctrinating homeless people on the way to the polls ... spending 4 to 1 on advertising ... having the media in the tank ... having Hollywood in the tank, having Acorn in the tank ... and, having 98% of all black voters in the tank. But, all of these things are nothing more than a fabricated perception. They have nothing to do with a person's experience, or ability to lead. They just reveal a candidate who will say, or do anything to get elected. That's why the Obamabots are so worried. That's why Obama is telling his disciples not to get over confident. That's why the Obama campaign tries real hard to make it look like Obama has already won ... just like they did in the run against Hillary in the primaries. I happen to believe there are legions of people who are going to vote for McCain on November 4th ... unlike the 'in your face' Obama supporters, November 4th is when the McCain supporters will express themselves. Keep America safe and strong, elect McCain/Palin on November 4th.

Joffrey the Stud:

It's true, Sarah Palin DOES have more
Executive experience than anyone else in this race.

That experience includes;

A: "Spreading the wealth around..."

Check out Alaskas Windfall Profits Tax that takes oil company success,
redistributes it's wealth by act of government,
thereby socializing the entrepreneur's profits.

B: "Abuse of Power..."

Troopergate, tasergate, don't use the government for your family's thangs...

C: "Questionable expenditures..."

If you don't understand why you don't use $21,000 of taxpayer money
to cart your family around with you, maybe your understanding of political
office is more in line with pre-America Europe than democracy.

Man, I hope if McCain/Palin win she will be President inside of 4 months.
Perhaps that's the test Joe Biden was channeling from beyond.

PALIN in oh-12 foolz
