Roosevelt High TP Awards



So the Cooler Staff was on our way to a morning coffee stop at Amici- when we drove past Roosevelt High and saw quite an amusing sight. The entire campus had been TP'd last night by some young hooligans. This got us to thinking (maybe it's just the coffee)- why not do a post on who deserves to get TP'd as it relates to the 2008 Presidential race.

So off we go...

1. The Des Moines Register- Seriously, if we have to read one more Vilsack for President press release..err article... before Christmas we're going to go crazy. Of the 12 articles in their "Caucus 08" section- 9 have Vilsack in the headline, 11 have Vilsack prominently involved. The headline following Bayh dropping out could have almost been in a Register parody paper. "Bayh Opts Against Run; Vilsack's Benefit Small." Pretty soon they are going to be tieing Vilsack's Presidential ambitions into stories about prostitution or stoplight cameras. TP, TP, TP.


2. John Edwards' "Two Americas"- We are issuing a collective dry heave at Cooler HQ just thinking about hearing this speech for the next 12+ months. And just in case he wasn't shameless enough, he's kicking off his announcement tour from New Orleans Lower 9th Ward. We're sure when he's listing off the names of those responsible for Katrina- Bush, Brownie, Global Warming, Bush- he won't mention Louisiana's Democrat Governor and Legislature.


3. Mitt Romney's South Carolina Spokesman- Not a great starting point to your new job. Embellishment works on blogs, conservative talk radio, and cable TV, but try to keep it in the ballpark when you're on the record with a print journalist.


4. Mike Huckabee's Organization- Or lack thereof. Rudy and McCain have clear issues with certain sects of the GOP base. Romney has been engaged in a 2 week flap over flip-flops on social issues. Brownback is liberal on immigration and can't raise the money. There is a clear void in the GOP nomination race that Huckabee could fill- that he wants to fill- yet he and his staff have been completely unable to take advantage. By the team they get off the pot, it will probably be too late to do anything except finish 3rd or 4th in Iowa and fizzle in New Hampshire.


Make your TP nominations below. Have a good Monday.

My TP award goes to Burton Rider for not posting on the blogs anymore. Where are you my man? We need your wisdom.

He probably would like to TP the Cooler for its shameless McCainiac propaganda.

I know I would.

My TP award goes to "Eye on 08" for sticking to it's anti-Romney screed while pretending to be non-biased.

We'd like to TP Cancer Man because he was a lot more fun when all his posts weren't attacking us for McCain bias!!! ;)

And we'd wish BR was posting more as well.

As for Eyeon08- they are clearly anti-Romney, but that doesn't excuse the spokesguy for making a really dumb comment.

TP the McCain campaign for their entire campaign to date being an anti-Romney smearfest. Maybe they can tell why we should vote for McCain instead?

I love the use of the word "sects"

"TP the McCain campaign for their entire campaign to date being an anti-Romney smearfest. Maybe they can tell why we should vote for McCain instead?"

Why? The Bush zealots showed us in 2000 that attacks were the only thing the "base" responds to.

I think if you want to shit on McCain all day in every thread you should start your own blog.

Sounds like 5:33 has pretty thin skin. All cancer man said was that the McCain campaign has been an anti-Romney smear-fest.

If you've been to any pro-McCain websites (some of which are run by McCain's paid bloggers), you'll find the entire MSM supply of anti-Romney shilling. Any defenses of campaign finance reform? Tax cut vetoes? Terrorist bill of rights? Gang of 14? Not so much...

Methinks the Cooler is not as connected as the Cooler would have people believe.

TP to 3:16 who thinks Cox is a joke.

Cox is a joke. C'mon, I have not heard a thing about him since the elections. Is he actually campaigning??? Are his fanatic nut-case staffers still working the state? I'm sorry, but John Cox and his whole camapaign is a joke. I would vote for Morry Taylor over John Cox any day.

TP the Cox campaign for giving those starry eyed college staffers false hope and empty dreams.

TP to those who believe that a President has to be a flip-flopping hack.

TP to those who make fun make fun of people who are better than them.

I'm wondering if they printed the whole quote by Jared Young (Romney's new spokesman). While it is true that ROmney's RECORD as governor as been 100% pro-life he did have rhetoric and statements that effectively made him a pro-choice candidate. It is true to say that in Romney's RECORD as governor he has "always come down on the side of life." I've heard him say this and maybe Jared Young got it wrong, but maybe the reporter didn't understand the context and/or misquoted.

Jeff, the media is never wrong and they certainly don't misquote republicans. That would make the GOP look bad silly.
