What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "GOP in Ruins" by Richard Cohen:

"By the way, Democrats need folks like Bush, John McCain, and Sarah Palin like we need door mats ... only to clean our boots on as we walk into the White House." —The_Unicorn_of_Memphis

About "More Straight Talk," a YouTube video of a McCain campaign speech, in which he inadvertently insults voters in Pennsylvania:

"Palin ain't that stupid — she's gotten almost $150,000 worth of fashion for just a couple months work, not to mention the deduction she'll undoubtedly take when she gives the scraps to the Wasilla Goodwill." — sbanbury

About "For the Kiddies' Sake, Pitching National Baseball Day (Again)" by Frank Murtaugh:

"Baseball dead? Methinks not. Life support? Not really. Just a few blows that have left bruises and black eyes that will heal over time. All of our sports (and is horse racing a sport?) have become a slave to the almighty dollar. Sponsorship and salaries are woven into the fabric of uniforms our heroes wear." — FlyGuy

Comment of the Week:

About "On Palin's Wardrobe Malfunction" by Marty Aussenberg:

"McSame and Palin thought they could play a game of political Punk'd and get away with it. They thought they could wrap a big, shining, sparkling $150,000 bow around a box of sh*t and voters would buy it, just like they did with Dubya." — rantboy
