- He doesn't wear an American flag lapel pin. This criticism comes from Jack Kingston (Ninny, GA), who wasn't wearing a lapel pin, either, when he appeared on Dan Abrams' show on MSNBC.
- His middle name is the same as that of the late Iraqi dictator...and millions of other people.
- He's secretly a Muslim (which he isn't, and which isn't illegal in this country anyway).
- The pastor of his church (whom Obama does not control) has some good things to say about Louis Farrakhan (whom Obama denounces).
Not to be outdone, Bush held a press conference and was pretty much all over the map. He harped on the now-discredited-by-members-of-his-own-party notion that the Democratic-controlled Congress is not budging on their denial of immunity to the telecoms who aided Bush in his illegal wiretaps of American citizens, thereby hastening the next 9/11-style cataclysm. He was also surprised to hear that some analysts believe the price of gasoline could hit $4 a gallon in the next few months (it's about $3.17 here now).
Oh, and Nader picked some loser to be his VP.
