McCain's October Surprise!

Is Palin about ready to kiss off the McCain camp?

Is there internal rumblings within the Republican Party? Insiders say Palin wants to go her own way, and that she thinks the people assigned to promote her aren't doing a good job. Actually, she'd like to be a maverick and go on her full attack mode but her handlers are busy just trying to keep her from making anymore stupid statements. Now what is it that the Vice President does Sarah?

CLICK HERE for an in-depth look at the fractured Republican Party that is already making excuses for why the campaign is heading south.

LOCAL MAN SHOWS OFF ENERGY EFFICIENT VEHICLE

WHAT'S THE POINT?

I know these are hard times but that doesn't mean people have lost all of their sense too does it?

WHICH SEAL IS REAL? OR SHOULD BE ANYWAY...

The REPUBLICAN Party Patch?

                                 OR THE DEMOCRATIC Party Patch?

It's your call blogger buddies and other visitors...

Stocks fall as fear of global recession looms

Major indexes fell as investors reacted to sharp sell-offs in overseas markets today. People think the world is sliding into a deep recession. CHICK HERE to read the whole story.

Cheney calls Palin to See if She Wants to go Hunting Sometime

Knowing how much Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin admires him, he invited her to go rabbit hunting with him some time.

She apparently agreed but insisted on bringing her automatic rifle and hunting for liberals instead of rabbits. Cheney

reportedly said, "Libwalls or wabbits ...it's all the same to me!"

A Bad slip while hunting for boogers leaves man with one eye!

Seen recently at a hospital waiting room, Ubber Von Poke, 42 yrs-old, dug a bit too deep in search of a booger than was bugging him. When emergency surgery was finished, the doctors extracted the finger successfully and put a big marble (cats eye) in place of the punctured orb. His family is hoping he learned his lesson but are cautiously optimistic. Said Mom in a recent interview, "He's always been a curious boy!"

ALERT UPDATE...SHE LIED!

Scroll down a bit and take a look at someone who really needs help!

Ashley Todd just admitted this afternoon (after enjoying her 15 minutes of fame) that she lied about being attacked (I'm just shocked). McCain campaign members said they hope she gets help. It must have been hard for them as Joe The Plumber is losing his popularity and Todd could have been a last minute savior for the party!

PUMPKIN ON STERIODS MAY BE BIGGEST IN LAND

This massive gourd is challenging last year's giant pumpkin, that weighed in at 1,400 pounds, for the biggest pumpkin in the land. It was grown at Fir Point Farms, Aurora, Oregon. I wonder how many pies could be made from this mutated vegetable?

Woman was (supposedly) attacked for being a McCain supporter!

Ashley Todd was recently beaten and mugged at an ATM -

It's too bad this young woman was hurt, but I think the media is going overboard covering this story (It's a real Google hitter this morning) when there appears to be some doubt about the authenticity of her claims. She claims a black man (who else?) became violent while in the process of robbing her at an ATM machine when he saw the McCain sticker on her car.

Let's see now, do you think the guy might have been dyslexic because he carved a backward B on her cheek? More importantly, where's the proof this incident really happened? I don't want to appear to be cruel, but I can't help pointing out the obvious oddity that throws this whole story into doubt; was her attacker dyslexic or did she carve the B herself while looking in a mirror?

I suspect that the reality is that this woman is a bit misguided and perhaps looking for some publicity that she actually thinks will help the McCain campaign. After a five hour interview with police, and taking a polygraph test, there remains doubt that she told the truth about what really happened. The police are still wondering why the backwards B on her cheek.

Nice try Todd, you had your 15 minutes of fame. I hope you enjoyed it!

MEDIA HAS TO PAY UP TO COVER OBAMA'S BIG NIGHT!

Media organizations will have to pay up 

if they want a prime spot to cover Democrat Barrack Obama's election night party.

I have to agree with Fred Brown, a former national president of the Society of Professional Journalists, who said, "The Obama campaign's fee list is a "mercenary way" to approach coverage."

"It seems to needlessly create ill will," said Brown, a retired capitol bureau chief for the Denver Post who still writes regularly for the newspaper.

PUMPKIN PUPPY VS PUKIN PUMPKINS

This cute little guy 

is going to try to compete with the popular Pukin Pumpkins post. The "hung over" gourds made a real impression across the country. Let's see what this fluff ball with pumpkin attire can do. Let me know if he's more entertaining than those orange boozers! It looks like this guy could use some love, don't you think?

Some foreign visitors today...

I was looking at some foreign visitor's to this blog today and was surprised to see someone in Tigrisnet, Iraq stopped by for a peek at my Sarah Pallin post.

I wonder if it was someone in our military? Or could it have been a lusting Iraqi who thinks Pallin's pretty hot?

Canada rang in again today with three new visitors from: Burnaby, British Columbia, Toronto, Ontario, and Prince Edward Island. They all wanted a peek at the now famous Pukin Pumpkin photo I posted a while back.

Cheerio oh! to some bloke from London, England who stopped in to see an old post titled Recycle or Else!

Meanwhile you Pukin Pumpkin fans continue to check in from all over America today!

WHO SAID McCAIN WAS ERRATIC?

JUST BECAUSE McCAIN HAS "SENIOR MOMENTS" IT DOESN'T MEAN HE'S NOT READY TO LEAD OUR COUNTRY INTO CONTINUED WARFARE FOR ANOTHER GENERATION.

I"M BACK! and YOU NEVER LEFT!

Thank you blogger buddies and new visitors for visiting my humble blog while I was away on vacation.
As repeaters know, I tried to make a few entries while traveling, but they were pretty pathetic!
Still..you came, and in record numbers.

How about I just share the last few days of visits from foreign visitors, and the out-of-state visitors?
Those of you here in California turned out in your usual strong numbers from all over this state every day I was gone.

I could find no common theme for what the visitors from overseas were reading. They picked a variety of posts and past columns.
Canada sent the most from any one country.

FOREIGN COUNTRIES:
Heilbronn, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany; Dhahran, Ash Shargiyah, Saudi Arabia; Kemptville, Ontario, Canada; Wemmel, Brabant, Belgium; Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa; Balzac, Alberta, Canada; Angers, Pay De La loire, France; London, United Kingdom; Berlin, Germany; Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada; Kitchener, Ontario, Canada; Prince George, British Columbia, Canada; and Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.

FROM THROUGHOUT THE USA:
Tok, Alaska (Hi Dave!); Aiea, Hawaii; Concord, North Carolina; Massillon, Ohio; Greensberg, North Carolina; Greenville, North Carolina; Naperville, Illinois; Bloomington, Illinois; Henderson, Neveda; Beaverton Oregon; Roxbury, Vermont; Tampa, Florida; Piedmont, South Carolina; Pulaski, Wisconsin; Washing, DC; Des Moines, Iowa; Salt Lake City, Utah; Dallas, Texas; Sisseton, South Dakota; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Lawerncebery, Indiana; Neptune, New Jersey; Liberty, Tennessee; Seattle, Washington; Schaumburg, Illinois; Greer, South Carolina; Columbia City, Indiana; Hyde Park, New York; Troy, Michigan; Florence, Alabama; Martin, Michigan; Smithfield, North Carolina; Warren, New Jersey; Mcdonough, Georgia; Mount Gilead, Ohio; Atlanta, Georgia; St. Louis, Missouri; Valparaiso, Indiana; and Williamson, New York.

I wondered what most of the USA visitor's came to see or read, so I checked it out and guess what?
The majority weren't interested in my past blogs or columns...nope...they pulled up a past post featuring a great photo of several drunken pumpkins (and one was throwing up!) I titled it PUKING PUMPKINS... and you came from all over the USA to see them!

Hmmmmm....I'm going to have to digest (pun intended) that!
