HOT or NOT: The Week-In-Review

HOT: Another Win for BO. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for two years, Tuesday's debate was a total bore and not a game changer, but Obama came out strong and hit McCain where it hurt.

NOT: Confusing Joe Biden with John McCain. A Tampa area resident and former Republican who supports Obama introduced Joe Biden as, "the next Vice President of the United States, John McCain." Um, awkward. Hey, at least, it’ll make for a good story at company icebreakers (?)

HOT: David Brooks on Palin. David Brooks has been taking a spoonful of straight-talk lately and called Sarah Palin a "fatal cancer to the Republican party" on Monday afternoon. He criticized Palin’s lack of intellectualism and her propensity to “scorn ideas,” comparing her to George Bush. Zing! And again, this is from David Brooks, not Barney Frank.

NOT: Cindy McCain Attacks. Cindy McCain accused Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama of running "the dirtiest campaign in American history." Really now?! According to an analysis by the Wisconsin Advertising Project, almost every ad that the McCain campaign ran last week was negative, compared to just 34 percent of those by Obama. Hmmm. If the campaign’s strategy is to make Cindy an attack dog, I say bring it on.

HOT: Voting Early and Often. The Wall Street Journal has reported that a large number of blacks in Georgia are taking advantage of the early voting option to avoid “polling problems” on Election Day. Ludacris was amongst one of the 263,408 ballots already cast in Georgia. Wonder who he's voting for...

NOT: FOX News Complains that Sarah Palin Photo is Not Retouched. So FOX News has officially run out of things to complain about and recently ran a segment in which a Republican strategist criticized Newsweek’s latest cover as a “gross slap in the face” to Sarah Palin. The commentator could not believe that Newsweek did not retouch the Palin photo! How tragic! There are Americans struggling to put food on the table and this is the subject of their criticism.
