Re: 'socialism'

If this was 1999 and we just came off of 8 years of horrid Dubya, i would have thought McCain would be a significant upgrade. In 2008, not so much.

Re: 'socialism'

Ergo, Joe the Plumber should vote for Obama. He's been duped otherwise. Or he's probably voting on racial lines.

Re: 'socialism'

Ugh, I can't believe that I had the exact same thought as Ben Affleck. Not that nonsense he was spewing before when he was flailing his arms about talking about markets blowing up, but the interaction between McCain and the woman at his rally who referred to Obama as an Arab.

Re: 'socialism'

I know what you mean. I was thinking 'dumb-ass actor', but he redeemed himself at the end. I actually think he's pretty cool again now :]

Hey, Affleck - go write Good Will Hunting 2 ya big Bostonian!

Well, technically they're a "sub-species". For them to obtain the status of a new species, we'd have to lose the physical ability to mate with them. And, I mean, some of those bible-thumpin' chicks are kinda hot!

Re: Palin rallies

I never thought McCain was not all that bad. I always thought he was bad. The last time he ran for president he invited to his campaign people involved with Rove style unscrupulous attacks. He is a lier and plays to whatever people want to hear. And he would be instrumental in overturning Row vs Wade, which hangs in the balance in this election. Horrifying. That's a HUGE difference with what Obama would do.

Re: Palin rallies

McCain wasn't that bad. He's proven to be far more anti-corruption than most politicians (and, honestly, more so than Obama, Biden or Palin), and for a while he seemed to vote his conscience even when it didn't sit with the party line. He's still a politician, though, and it doesn't surprise me that he used "Rove-like tactics" to get ahead, as sad and revolting as that may be. But let's not pretend that Obama's a saint either...as I've often stated, no politician above the level of PTA board member is.

In what way is he more anti-corruption than Obama? Also, Obama is right when he talks about how much McCain voted the party line. It is a perception that McCain and his cohorts want to portray, but it is incorrect. I will find the statistics for you, and the report cards for his voting record on various issues if you like. (Not today, I'm going to see stereolab in a little bit, whoohoo!)

And I do not believe Obama has been even remotely as shady as McCain, though of course he's a politician through and through.
