Obama's Preference

Wow. While John McCain is willing to stop campaigning to, you know, actually try and bring change to an economical system that desperately needs it, Barack Obama tries to compare being on the campaign trail to actually working.

Don't get me wrong, I've worked on campaigns. I know that it's hard work and a full time and a half job. However. He already HAS a job. He's a Senator. Obama delivered some bull about how as President, you have to be able to multi-task.

Yes, Obama. Good job. You DO have to be able to multi-task. You also have to be able to triage tasks.

I applaud John McCain for showing actual leadership and trying to unite the parties in a trying time for all American citizens.

Perhaps Obama should stick to dressing as a leader for halloween and not embarrassing himself by trying to impersonate one every day. No wonder he's too exhausted to do his actual job.

Sarah Palin: Lies, Truth, and Fairytales

To paraphrase a friend of mine, I can't help but wonder if Joe Biden feels like the ugly girl at the school dance with all of the attention being given to beauty queen Sarah Palin.

And attention she has gotten! For good or ill, she's been on everyone's mind. From the Daily Kos smearing her with (false, and nasty) accusations of having faked a pregnancy to cover for her daughter, to being condemned as a bad mother for pursuing a career in politics while having young children, Sarah Palin has raised quite the stir since the announcement that she was the (first female) Republican nominee for Vice-President of the United States of America.

Since the news broke that Bristol Palin, Sarah's seventeen year old daughter, was pregnant, vicious attacks have spread around the internet like wildfire. And we all know how dangerous and harmful a wildfire can be.

Both McCain and Obama have denounced these sort of smears, saying that the candidate's children should be off limits. Amen.

Sarah Barracuda(her highschool basketball nickname) sums her up quite nicely. Is it any wonder that John McCain chose this woman as his running mate? This woman who, in the course of a week, has given more energy to the party than anyone in the entire course of this campaign?

She is not, as many bitterly accuse, a token woman. She's an incredible person who happens to be a woman. This is not a reach out to Hillary voters. This is a reach out to smart voters, who, upon learning about her, will likely fall madly for her.

She is strong, she is a mother, she is smart, she is articulate, she is educated, she is beautiful, and she is the next Vice President of the United States of America.

What a great day it will be for America when a great woman takes that office.
