(7 comments) National Republicans have set up shop in Denver, hoping to thrust themselves into the media's coverage of the Democratic convention.

Another Example of Associated Press Bias
(9 comments) It appears that the Associated Press has become a partisan mouthpiece for the McCain campaign. Twice in one day there appeared hit pieces on Obama-Biden and 'editorializing' in defense of John McCain, instead of straight reporting of nothing but the facts.

Americans Respond to Smears, Not Intellect
(3 comments) Obama had better get down and dirty and not high and lofty. The American public twice elected Bush on down and dirty. High and lofty once worked when Americans were more fair minded and practical, but ignorance has replaced the reformism of the New Deal and if the Democrats don't fight slogans with their own one-liners and hot button issues, THEY WILL LOSE!!! That simple.

McCain Swiftboaters are Already Questioning the Patriotism of Barak Obama
The all-too-predictable and familiar right-wing slander machine has begun 'patriot-baiting' on Barak Obama and the Democratic Party candidates. It has already begun and will be a major McCain campaign tactic during this presidential election year.
