Marley: My New Baby


I would like to apologize for the inconsistency in my posts lately.

My girlfriend and I adopted an eight week old puppy last Friday and as you could imagine, she has taken up a majority of my time.

I will start posting again Friday and I will post new picture of Marley as well!

Thanks and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Bye Bye Bush... Good Riddance



It appears that I'm not the only one ecstatic about the Bush Administration coming to an end.

Here Bush walks onto stage to be rejected by every world leader he passes. He looks pathetic. What in the world is he going to do after he is out of office. He has become one of the biggest jokes on the planet.

It's hard to imagine him saving any face once out of the office. Who knows, maybe he'll surprise all of us and go down the road of other former presidents and become a philanthropist. My guess is he will start drinking again and we won't see very much of him.

It's About Love


It is hard for me to understand why so many people are against same-sex marriage.
Changes have been made to the 'traditional' sense of marriage before. Interracial marriage is allowed now and it wasn't back in the day. So why can't there be another adjustment in the world of marriage? People are too scared of this god who may or may no exist. Sure, faith is a nice thing to have in life but I would much rather have love.

The idea that some people won't let others be together because of their god is pure nonsense. First off, god may not exist. Some people have different gods than others. Some just don't believe. So why does the entire country have to follow the same set of ideas from a higher being that may in fact be made-up completely!

When the Old Testament and Bible were written, people had no idea what the hell was going on in the world. They didn't know what got their women pregnant. They thought the world was flat.
They had their imaginations though. Couldn't it be possible that some of that stuff you take so literally might be fiction!? Oh no, he said it!

Life is about love. People want that love, affection, security and the comfort of laying down next to the person they love and waking up with them still by their side. Who cares if they have the same chromosomes? What matters is what they have in their hearts. Love.

The people who are fighting this uphill battle against the hate that is brewing thick in America, are people like you and me. They are teachers, construction workers, soldiers, doctors, and more. They are Americans. They are human beings. They deserve the exact same rights as everyone else.

If John and Charles in Oregon got married, how does that play out in your life? It doesn't. If Sally and Susie in Connecticut get hitched, how will your life be different? It won't. But their lives will change drastically. They will be married to the person they love and that is a beautiful thing.

We are human beings first and foremost. We all start as that same little tadpole searchig for that egg. So what scares people into thinking same-sex marriage is a sin? Why should it matter?
I am a heterosexual, Jewish-American from New York City. Do you think my life is any different because a happy male couple is married two thousand miles away from me? Of course not.

Some people say, 'I don't want to see that kind of thing.' Well no one is asking you to watch! No one is forcing you to go and sit front and center at every same-sex marriage across the country.
All these people want is the chance to love and be loved. They don't want to feel like second class citizens who almost have the same rights as others, but don't. We all deserve the same rights. Whatever happened to, 'All men are created equal?'

I don't hate on religion. I don't hate on god. I don't even know if I believe in god. But what I do believe in is life, love and happiness. I believe in letting anyone share their life with anyone else so long as it makes the two of them happy.

Stop being so scared America. Stop hating what's different. Open your eyes and learn to embrace that love between two people (no matter what is between their legs) is a beautiful thing that should be cherished, not feared.

Election Withdrawal? Hardly.


This past election seemed at times as if it would never end. Month after month ticked by and the fight continued on televisions in living rooms across the nation and world.

Now there are no more robocalls. No more, 'and I approve this message' commericals. No more debates and no more polls. It couldn't make me happier that this election has come to an end and that we made the right choice by electing Barack Obama.

The election may be over but Bush is still in the White House and Sarah Palin is still on my television. I will be unable to fully relax and enjoy the Obama victory until January 20th when he is sworn in as our 44th president. Until that day we still have a Dick and a Bush in charge.
This past election was more of a circus than anything. The McCain campaign stooped to every low possible in order to make up lost ground. Never happened. McCain's selfish ways completely derailed the GOP. They don't know what to do now and some are speculating that Palin will be on top of their ticket in four years. Ha!

Putting Sarah Palin on top of the ticket in 2012 would be like driving that final nail into a coffin. If the GOP thinks they are in bad shape now, wait until Palin is in charge. Who the hell knows who she'd run with. Elisabeth Hasselbeck? Joe the Plumber?

This election won't be over in my mind until President-Elect Obama drops the elect and moves into the White House.

Sarah Palin's Future



Once the dust settles from the Palin twister that ripped through America, I could only imagine and hope that Sarah Palin will realize that her time in the lower 48 did nothing but hurt her party and make herself look ridiculous on an international stage.

That probably won't be the case and it's very unfortunate. Yeah, I'm sure there are people ignorant and gullible enough to fall for her cheap appeal, but the majority has spoken. A lot of McCain supporters even jumped ship after a couple weeks of absolutely embarrassing interviews with the Alaskan Governor.

I'm not here to say she is pure evil, though the thought has crossed my mind numerous times. I am here to say that whatever she does, let's hope she keeps it up in Alaska. I was much happier before I knew anything about Sarah Palin.

Personally, I am sick of her being on television and in the news so regularly. The McCain campaign was a failure yet we see Palin in the news more than Joe Biden, our VP-elect. It's an abomination.

Yes there is talk about her running in 2012 as the head of the GOP ticket. First of all, Bush is still in office, can we stop talking about 2012!? Come on! I think we should let Obama be president for at least a little while before jumping to conclusions about something that may or may not happen four years in the future! The very idea of Sarah Palin running for president makes my head hurt and my stomach spin in circles. If she is qualified to be president we should just put a Playboy bunny in office instead. . . there wouldn't be much difference.

She has yet to prove herself as someone capable to field questions from the media. She thinks regular questions are 'gotcha' journalism and that her constitutional rights are in jeopardy because of the criticism she has taken. Give me a break. Someone running for the highest office in the land should expect criticism and tough questions. They should be able to handle them professionally and answer said questions accordingly . . . like Barack Obama.

Hopefully she'll stay in Alaska. That's all I have to say. The minute I turn on the television to be greeted by The Sarah Palin Show will be the day I smash my television and lose all hope. Take it from us Sarah, you're much better off where we can't hear or see you.

Children's Movies are for Children!


This is in response to the November 10th, 2008 posting on The Marquee Blog on CNN run by Entertainment Producer Todd Leopold.
http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/


Am I getting something wrong here? Is this guy complaining that children's movies have lousy scripts? Is he saying Pixar and Disney are just pumping movies out as quickly as possible to make a buck?

Well, to simply answer your question about why scripts for kid's movies are sub-par . . . they are for kids! Are you really that influenced by what a few critics say? Some of the greatest films of all time were destroyed by critics. And again, we are talking family/children films. You get a group of children to be critics for something like Madagascar and there will be thumbs up all over the place.

Put a child in front of a television playing a movie like The Usual Suspects or Shawshank Redemption and they'll have no idea what the hell is going on.

Children's movies are unique. They are special and create worlds that inspire young children to dream and think and be creative. I remember with only the fondest of memories my childhood and my obsession with great films like Aladdin, The Lion King and The Little Mermaid.

These films aren't meant to be enjoyed by all adults. Clearly, some will absolutely have a great time at the cinema with their children watching something silly like Ice Age and others won't. It doesn't mean that it is a bad film.

But the question here is why does it matter if the scripts aren't Oscar worthy? Who cares? Definitely not the children because they'll drag you back to the same silly film a dozen times before having you buy them a copy on DVD.

People are thinking too much these days. Let the kid movies be for the kids and if you're unhappy with the scripts and the dialogue of a movie made for children, go see something more suitable for your age. Don't complain and rain all over millions of childrens parades by saying their movies are lame. That my friend is lame.

A Tribute to Sarah Palin



Don't ever come back. Just stay in Alaska forever please. We would all really appreciate it.

The Struggling Economy



It's no secret. The economy is in the toilet.

The last eight years has almost sunk a once thriving ship of productivity and efficiency.

We have an astronomical debt, banks closing around the country and people losing their homes at unprecedented rates. Things may seem bleak but one must know that every cloud has a silver lining.

Barack Obama is a man that has always seen that silver lining. He has overcome the greatest of odds in his short life and has landed himself in the most prestigious of offices, or what once used to be the most prestigious of offices.

It will take a lot of work to undo the damage that has been done in Washington and around the country. It won't be an overnight thing. This country has a broken leg and it will take time before we can walk the way we used to. Barack Obama will do what is necessary to mend this great nation. He won't simply put a band-aid on things as a quick escape.

The greedy ways of America must be changed. Those on top must realize that without those towards the bottom, there is no way forward. Think about being a child in gym tied to the rest of your class. If all the legs don't work and move together in the right direction, there is really nowhere to go but down.

That's what has happened to the USA. Things seemed to be going great for a while. My baby-boomer generation parents never struggled to buy a car or a house in the past but in recent years have had some troubles. Sound familiar?

When I was a child growing up in the 80s and 90s, there were never any worries about filling up the gas tank to go on a family roadtrip. A majority of Americans, the middle class especially never struggled to put food on the table until recent years.

It is quite troubling. The greed and narrow-mindedness of the vast majority blinded us from the imminent crash from wreckless behavior that was waiting patiently for our collide.

The country is divided. A lot of Republicans are reluctant to welcome Obama into the White House. The a lot of Democrats are angry at the GOP for their dishonest campaign. In order for things to go the way Obama envisions for us, we must work together. We must put our petty differences aside and embrace the similarity that binds all of us together . . . we are Americans.

Like the children in gym class, we must keep our strides in sync or we'll never move forward. We must use these past years as a constant reminder of why we should work together as one. Unity is the one thing that will set us free.

Dancing Around the World



What an amazing project. I can't say that I'm not horribly jealous. To see the world dancing together with smiles galore is a wonderful thing.

www.wherethehellismatt.com

What Happened to Freedom?


How dare they approve Proposition 8. How dare anyone say that marriage should be between a man and a woman and nothing more.

The beauty of this country is our capability to grow and change and progress.

This country was formed around the idea that people can do anything and follow their dreams.

Who cares if two men love each other? Who cares if two women want to stand at the alter? Who the hell are we to say two people in love can't unite together?

It is absolutely despicable that this is an issue. It is an atrocity that the world is in shambles, the economy is in the toilet, we are at war in two countries, the ozone is depleting and the global temperature and sea levels are rising . . . and what are we arguing about? Whether or not two people in love should have the same rights as others based on their sex!? It is absolutey absurd and Un-American to deny them that right.

Shame on us for even having this argument. We have come so far and this is one of the last chains still holding us down . . . we must break free.

The Happiest 24 Hours On Earth


Last night something amazing happened. The world stood together as one and celebrated something special and historical beyond any of our understanding. You couldn't help but tear up listening to his beautiful victory speech, something our grandchildren will be learning about in grammar school.

Hopeful and inspired eyes from all around the globe, countries near and far, were glued to the television all night before taking to the streets in celebration. Pictures are flooding the papers and Internet of excited and merry citizens of earth, watching and rejoicing together in the most united you've seen the world in a long time, if ever.

It was an election that not only captivated Americans, but all nations. Last night the world witnessed together a major step in the direction necessary to make this planet a happy one.

Sure, you are going to hear some people spewing hate and spreading fear as a result of their inability to cope with defeat, but what we must do now is try to reason with them. Fighting is not the answer. Unity is the glue necessary to patch up a country divided.

People from all over the world came together last night as they watched Barack Obama win the presidential election. We must do the same. We can't fuss. We must stick together and move forward or we'll never go anywhere.

I honestly believe that Barack Obama is exactly what we need right now. But what skeptics need to understand, and I think this is something all Obama supporters believe, is that change is not going to happen overnight. Never has Barack Obama said this was going to be quick and easy. It is going to take a while. It is going to take all Americans working together in harmony under the leadership of a man who is competent, capable and caring.

Last night was arguably the most important night in American history. The election is over but the time for change is now. We must get to work as a whole. We must work together in America as well as abroad. This is more than a domestic issue. It is global and if we work together there is no telling what we can achieve. Look how far we've come. Just think of what we can do as one.

24 hours have passed since the day the world shed a happy tear and smiled together. We must harness this positive energy we're feeling now and use it to start the healing. We can do it.

Yes we can.

A Harlem Celebration

Andrea and I take in history as tens of thousands take to the streets in Harlem.

People cheer during Obama's acceptance speech.

Once this flashed on the screen the streets of Harlem went absolutely wild. I have never seen anything like it and I will never forget it for the rest of my life.

President Barack Obama.

People flooded 125th Street as the night pushed on. There were tens of thousands of people dancing, singing, crying and smiling, showing the world that we can do anything.

A man sells Obama buttons.

Looking west down 125th Street. The intersection at Adam Clayton Powell Blvd was overflowing with happy Obama supporters.

Looking east down 125th looked the same. Smiles galore.

Cheering for our new president of the United States of America... Barack Obama!

Jay-Z on Obama



One of the most inspirational quotes of the presidential race came from Jay-Z yesterday.

"Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther King could walk. Martin Luther King walked so Obama could run. Obama's running so we all can fly."

Poetic and beautiful.

Thanks Jay.

Rocking The Vote In Harlem

A view from my apartment. A line wrapping around Frederick Douglass Blvd and down W. 117th Street.
A line of eager voters stretch down Frederick Douglass Blvd to Central Park at 110th Street. Across the street you can see another line of people waiting to vote at another polling station.


A woman sits while waiting on W. 112th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard.



Still waiting.


Finally, after 2 long years of waiting, I cast my vote for Barack Obama, the future of America.

Twins Two: Starring McCain and Schwarzenegger


Where do I even begin?

First off, the idea of Arnold Schwarzenegger jabbing at Obama's "scrawny arms" and "chicken legs" is absolutely elementary and ludicrous. The fact that Barack Obama is lean is of no importance to anything going on in the world right now. Not to mention John McCain's old and beat, 72 year old body which I shudder to think about.

John McCain has been taking shots at Obama's 'celebrity' status but is now he is desperately campaigning with Hank Williams Jr. and the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger. McCain would attack Obama like a madman if Brad Pitt and Lenny Kravetz where out campaigning with him in these last few days.

No one was there to see the Governor of California, they were there to see the Terminator.

Aaaahnald attacked Obama about the money he has raised campaigning and how in a recession, that money could have gone to better things. Remember Arnold, and every other desperate Republican out there, that money was DONATED to Barack Obama by the American people. The thing is, Obama has had so many people donating over and over, small amounts whenever they could because they really believe. It grows a lot when you have tons of supporters. I am sure Arnold Schwarzenegger has donating a hefty sum of money to John McCain. Barack has more supporters, more supporters means more money. That's why he is winning, because of his gigantic following.

John McCain stepped in and thanked the Terminator, calling him a 'true American hero.' Unlikely seeing as how he is Austrian. And half the morons in the crowd are people accusing Obama of not being American and questioning the authenticity of his birth certificate. When an Austrian man who followed his American dream rallies up a bunch of ignorant idiots in an arena while shooting down an American man following his American dream to become president, my head starts to hurt. The hypocrisy and absolute ridiculousness of the McCain campaign is overwhelming.

The Governator also pointed out that John McCain was serving his country as a POW longer than Obama has been in the Senate. Who cares? That is so incredibly irrelevant and doesn't make him more qualified at all. These Republicans are desperate with the last hours ticking away. McCain needs a lot more than Arnold Schwarzenegger and his lame, thin attacks on Obama that will be fact-checked to death. He needs a miracle.

Listen Closely



First he refers to Joe Biden as Joe The Biden, probably still torn up from the previous day where he was stood up by his faithful toilet plunger.

Then he referred to Barack Obama as Senator O'Biden.

Lastly, he finishes by saying, "I know our friends and I know our enemies and they know me, blah blah blah.." Wait a second... you know our enemies? They know you? So does that mean you know Al Qaeda and Taliban? Wouldn't that mean you're the one who was pallin' around with terrorists?

Everything this guy says is a joke. All of it. He can't go a sentence without being contradictory or making himself look incompetent. He is a hypocrite and in four more days the country will shut him down.

Palin and McCain Disagree



They disagree here about defense spending.

They disagreed about pulling out of Michigan.

They disagreed about targeting terrorists in Pakistan.

Rick Sanchez Makes Michael Goldfarb Look Like A Moron



Like all clueless McCain supporters, McCain spokesmen Michael Goldfarb looks like a complete moron on CNN.

McCain Stood Up By Joe The Plumber



Beep beep, coming through... time for the rubberneckers to glance out their windows and witness yet another McCain campaign train wreck.

Last night when Barack Obama had Bill Clinton on stage with him, John McCain couldn't even get Joe The Plumber to stay be his side... McCain introduced a non-existent Joe The Plumber to the crowd and after awkward silence and no Joe, he announced they were all Joe The Plumbers. The real Joe was probably out back working on his country music record deal or necking with Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

The closer it gets to Election Day, the happier I get. I am tired of this nonsense. The country is in a terrible place right now and while Barack Obama is laying out his plan to help pull us out of the gigantic hole we're in, John McCain is still only talking about a few things... Joe The Plumber, Bill Ayers and now Obama's link to a Columbia University professor, Rashid Khalidi (a man McCain also has ties to). This is John McCain doing what he does best, smearing names and running a negative campaign.

Just give up John. Give up Sarah. You guys are the last two on the sinking ship... either drown or save yourselves. Actually, go ahead and drown.

Don't Vote . . . NOT



Hollywood stepping things up.

The GOP Called Out



I couldn't agree more. You know if Barack Obama was in the White House during Hurricane Katrina, things would have gone worlds different.

Beyond Inspirational: Barack Obama Infomercial





Bravo!

John McCain On Very Thin Ice



Over the past few months, it has been very common to hear rumors floating around about all of the candidates running for office.

The McCain campaign has tried desperately and incessantly to paint Barack Obama in a poor light. There have been countless references to Bill Ayers (who McCain said in the third debate was some washed up old terrorist he didn't care about), attempts to link him to ACORN (nobody cares), attacks on his faith, his relationships and his character.

McCain released a new ad today showing Obama's face floating in front of images of Iran and Ahmadinejad. They talk about Obama's plan to speak without 'preconditions,' another thing that only McCain and Palin care about. I can smell the desperation from here in Harlem.

The whole time Obama has stood strong, completely cool and collected while McCain bounces around like a tennis ball on issues . . . back and forth, back and forth.

What McCain has done consistently throughout his campaign is lie repeatedly to the American people. He still stands by the slogan, Country First, which is the biggest lie of all. It has and always will be John McCain first in his mind.

He has said numerous times that he can fix this country. His examples have been thin and transparent, almost humorous if the consequences weren't so grave. "I can find Osama Bin Laden my friends" and "I can fix the economy, no problem."

Today he said, "I'll get every American a job." Boy oh boy, it seems John McCain can do everything! Maybe he'll go up into the sky and fix the ozone. And after that he can cure AIDS and cancer.

Think about how many homeless people there are in this country... do you really think John McCain cares at all about homeless people? Doubtful. He wants to give tax cuts to oil companies. Not something someone who cares about the poor and middle class would do.

Seeing as how the poor and middle class make up almost all Americans, that's a pretty bad sign for Johnny Boy.

My Thoughts on Sarah Palin


It would take me a lot of time to put down all of my thoughts about Sarah Palin, so I'll make this as brief as possible.

She is the biggest slap in the face to this country I have ever witnessed. She goes against so many things people have fought hard for and she will set this country back ages.

She is a clone of George W. Bush, someone who will easily buy into all of the GOP rhetoric. She is a puppet who is in way over her head.

She is a right-wing religious nut who is hell bent on taking away people's civil liberties. She is insanely pro-life, doesn't believe in global warming and has no economic or foreign policy intelligence. John McCain said himself not too long ago that he isn't very savvy with economics and would need a VP who could help him out in that area... ha!

She is no maverick, no reformer and absolutely by no means, as McCain called her, the best thing to happen to America.

She was corrupt in Alaska and she will be the same in Washington. She can't answer questions and believes SHE is the one being tricked by 'gotcha' journalism. Being asked a question and not having a clue as to how to answer it doesn't mean we're tricking you.... it just means you are uninformed and poorly read.

Most of the people in this country are smart enough to see through her hypocrisy and lies. She may have been a regular ole hockey mom back in the day, but that day was long ago. Now she is a brand. She is new the face of the GOP. And that my friends, is a scary, scary thing.

Keith Olbermann Destroys Sarah Palin, Again



I couldn't have said it better myself.

New Obama Ad



Another honest and well made ad by the Obama campaign.

Bullwinkle Endorses Barack Obama



After a very long wait, Bullwinkle has finally gone public with his endorsement of Barack Obama.

This is huge with less than a week remaining before election day. The McCain campaign (especially Sarah Palin) have been fearing this day for quite some time now.

Bullwinkle represents all moose all over the country. By being the lead moose, he also has quite a bit of pull with the rest of the animal kingdom. Seeing as how all humans are indeed animals, Bullwinkle's public endorsement of Obama will be sure to sway many of the undecided voters out there and quite possibly, change many Republican minds.

The moose himself was not available for comment due to an increasingly busy schedule, but a Bullwinkle spokesmen said that his official statement was,

"Two antlers up for Obama."

Joe The Plumber and Elisabeth Hasselbeck??



Since John McCain has been unable to get any endorsements that matter, he brought along Joe The Plumber to speak at a rally in Ohio.

I do a significant amount of reading but I am gonna go out and say something here that not many people are saying... who cares what Joe The Plumber thinks? He unclogs toilets for a living. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with working around human feces (someone has to do it) but is he really becoming John McCain's October surprise?

He is an unlicensed plumber folks! Come on! Who gives a crap (no pun intended) what Joe The Plumber has to say? I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the guy. I'm sure he is a solid dude, but give me a break!

Think about the McCain campaign for a minute. Think about who they have supporting them in contrast to the Obama campaign.

While the Clintons and Powells and Eisenhowers and Kennedys of the country are out there endorsing and supporting Obama, who do the McCain campaign drag around?

Joe The Plumber and Elisabeth Hasselbeck for crying out loud! It is like a reality show gone extremely wrong. The McCain campaign is a joke. The last thing the GOP needed after the eight year Bush disaster was this... a campaign that has buried itself with its own lies, hate and hypocrisy.

At least there is only one week to go.

Barbara West is a Biased Bitch




That's right, I said it.

Barbara West, a hack news reporter from Florida, relentlessly attacked Joe Biden with absolutely ridiculous questions.

Every question asked to Biden was straight out of a GOP strategist's mouth. Barbara West's husband is that man. He works for the GOP. Surprised?

Neither am I.

On October 14th, Barbara (who is usually a health reporter) interviewed John McCain and it was a completely different ballgame than the Biden interview. I was waiting for Barbara West to tear her clothes off and start licking the camera when she spoke to the old man.



Gee . . . I wonder who Barbara is going to vote for. Maybe she'll get an offer for a job at Fox News. Her disgustingly biased views are right up their alley.

Barbara West... you are a disgusting human being... stick to the health reports. You are a joke. Like the GOP. Like John McCain, George W. Bush and Sarah Palin.

John W. McBush



It boggles the mind knowing that there are people out there who actually think McCain will be a different president than Bush.

Some have their arguments (while most don't) and it absolutely blows me away that someone who voted over 90% of the time with George W. Bush thinks he'll bring change to the White House.

It is insulting to me, you and all Americans who actually care about this country. Bush doesn't care about this country. He cares about money and sneaking out of the shadow of his father.

McCain doesn't care about his country. He cares about himself. That's it.

5th Grader Damon Weaver Interviews Joe Biden

Alaska's Biggest Paper Endorses Obama


Well how about them apples?

The Anchorage Daily News has just announced it's endorsement of Barack Obama. Sounds a little strange that the biggest newspaper in Alaska would go against its own Sarah Palin, but it just goes to show that being the most popular governor really doesn't mean squat in the national and international spotlight.

Every day that passes, another thread from the McCain sweater comes loose. There are countless fingers being pointed at countless different people, blaming the demise of the McCain Campaign on anyone and everyone.

As the GOP becomes further divided in what appears to be the beginning of the end for the republican party, the blame game is the last thing in the world they should be concerned about as their chances for presidency slips completely out of their grasp. Sarah Palin is thinking more about her chances of running for presidency in 2012 than she is thinking about the situation at hand. That was made clear the other day when she incorrectly answered a 3rd grader's question about the responsibilities of a vice president. She has had months to learn that answer and still is clueless.

Part of me, maybe .01%, feels bad for her. She is being torn apart by everyone in the country. She is the main reason for the fall of McCain. Who's to blame? A lot of people. But the man atop the ticket is where to place the most blame. John McCain had one of the biggest shovels in digging the hole that will eventually swallow the GOP. There were so many more qualified people he could have chosen. He walked the selfish path. He decided to put John McCain first, not the country.

Not only did John McCain pick Sarah Palin, he still believes she is the best choice. The most qualified choice. The best thing to happen to America. Well John, it's too bad we pick the president and not you. Because we see through the transparency of your campaign and we know you care more about yourself than your country. Hence, a gigantic shift in the polls towards Obama.

You had a great and patriotic life. You served your country well. But that doesn't mean you should be in charge. No sir.

The McCain Trail of Desperation




I feel like the United States of America has become an insane asylum in the past two months.

John McCain, Sarah Palin, and all of their supporters are like a huge epidemic of addicts that just poured into the doors of a loony bin. McCain and Palin are the spokesmen for these closed-minded and selfish people. Barack Obama is in charge of the asylum and all of his supporters are like nurses and security guards for these people seeking whatever drug it is to keep them sane . . money, oil, land, god, taking away people's civil liberties . . who knows... anyway, all of these McCain and Palinites are running around like chickens with their heads cut off, saying anything they can possibly say to hurt Barack Obama and all of the good he stands for . . . as if playing by the theory, if you throw a lot of shit against the wall, some will eventually stick . . . not this time. I picture all of these crazy people running to different nurses and guards, giving them all of these crazy, made-up, flip-flopping stories just to score a little more.

"Bill Ayers!" screams a patient.

"Nobody cares about that," says a nurse.

"He is Arab!" shouts another patient.

"No, he was born in Hawaii ma'am," says a guard.

"He is a terrorist!" screams another patient.

"No, he isn't. Why don't you go get some rest," says another nurse.

Come on people! These are the only "arguments" McCain supporters have! I don't hear McCain supporters argue for his stance on health care or what he'll do for the middle class do you?
All they do is shout out the things they hear the most and read in the headlines. These people need to actually read the collection of smaller words below the big bold ones up top and start educating themselves on the REAL issues.

It makes me wonder about Ashley Todd, the psychotic girl from Texas who claimed she was assaulted by an Obama supporter. She told police a black guy carved a backwards 'B' into her face for supporting John McCain. Turns out it was all a hoax and the 'B' was backwards because she carved it into her own face in a mirror. Gee, I wonder if race had anything to do with this. McCain, kiss your chances for presidency goodbye.

They are incredibly desperate now that the end is in sight. They can see whatever drug it is they want so badly will soon be gone and they're panicking. It is actually a pretty sad sight. But it feels really good to sit back and watch.

Still Your Average Hockey Mom (if your son is Wayne Gretzky)



When asked about the ungodly amount of money spent on clothing and make-up, Sarah Palin had this to offer, "Oh if people only knew how frugal we are."

Frugal? Is that what you crazy meth addicts from Wasilla are calling it these days? I suppose we learned a few different words for that down in the lower 48, Hawaii and parts of Alaska that have the ability to think for themselves . . . corrupt, dishonest, self-righteous, pathetic, incompetent . . . I can honestly go on forever so I'll stop with this one . . . dangerous.

I have always known the word 'frugal' to mean someone who is very careful with his or her money and don't spend in excess. Seeing as how the Palins have multiple properties, cars, snow-mobiles, a small plane and over four times the average American salary on clothing, I wouldn't put that word 'frugal' in the same sentence as Palin.

I'm still having trouble grasping how some people support her. It is unreal. She is the most destructive aspect of the McCain campaign and not only do they not see that, they believe the complete opposite. McCain thinks of Palin as the most qualified VP choice in years and that she is the best thing to happen to America.

McCain keeps saying how she is the most popular governor. Who cares? How many people in this country can actually name 10 different governors anyway? I'd be willing to bet very few. And who cares if she is popular? McCain is so proud that she is so damn popular in Alaska. She is the attractive, mean girl from high school that all the boys liked. She was popular. Like she was as governor. Just because a majority of the boys in Alaska would like to see her naked doesn't mean she would make a good president. She has already been exposed as incompetent, corrupt, and frankly, very unintelligent. Eliot Spitzer was popular and look what happened to him. Popularity isn't the important thing here folks, it's the person beneath the facade. You take away all of the advisers pumping information into Sarah Palin's ears around the clock and you'll be left with a hollow, attractive shell of ignorance and stupidity. Anyone can repeat words that are stuffed down their throat.

Open your eyes people. McCain = Bush = Palin = 4 more years of the last 8.

Will Ferrell and Tina Fey as Bush and Palin

McCain is Failin With Palin


If today's interview with John McCain and Sarah Palin doesn't finally sink their already sinking ship of hate, I don't know what will.

Brian Williams interviewed the two together from Akron, Ohio and I am absolutely astonished that the two of them get away with the things they say.

When asked about Joe Biden's comment about a new president being tested and the McCain camp's attack on his words, John McCain said that if he were elected, he wouldn't be tested because they know him and he has already been tested. First of all, who is they? Everyone else in the world? Or just the evildoers who would possibly do something to test America? If that's so, wouldn't John McCain be the one pallin' around with terrorists if they already know him? It's absolutely absurd.

When asked about Colin Powell's endorsement of Barack Obama, McCain said that Powell must not have been aware of Palin's record. Right.

He said that she is a reformer and she fought corruption in Alaska. Fought corruption? Hmm.. Troopergate? $20,000+ in Joe the Plumber and Sally the Eskimo's taxpayer money in travel expenses for her uninvited litter of children? Did we forget about these things? No, we didn't.

Brace yourself, John McCain went as far to say in a desperate and feeble attempt to defend his selfish and idiotic choice of Sarah Palin that she is the most qualified vice presidential candidate we've had in years! Years!!

If this is so why are Sarah Palin's poll numbers in the toilet. The overall argument is that she has destroyed McCain's chances. She is viewed as a more destructive link to McCain than George W. Bush.

Palin has gotten herself in some trouble lately with her ignorant remarks of 'real America' and places that are 'pro America.' She has recently referred to Barack Obama as Barack the wealth spreader.

Funny, the GOP has spent $150,000 on Sarah Palin's clothing. Pretty pricey considering the state of our economy and how she is your average Joe six-pack hockey mom and all.

I don't even want to get into the robocalls and how pathetic and desperate they are.

The two of them are the ultimate odd couple who fail at ad-libbing and can't feed off each other to save their lives. The chemistry between them is absolutely non-existent.

She thinks she'll run the Senate and run around with all the boys and girls over there and make changes here and there. She truly believes she'll have all of this crazy power. You can't just pull up the Constitution on the vice presidential laptop and make changes where you see fit. Remember, it was only a few months back when Palin asked what it was that a vice president does everyday.

I am dying to hear a question be finally answered. Really, it would be so nice to hear. Every question thrown at them is dodged left and right and automatically spun into an attack on Obama and some nonsensical stump speech that has most likely been fact-checked to be false. They don't answer questions, ever. It's fascinating but also scary.

Thirteen more days and this circus will finally be over. I'm confident that Americans will make the right choice and vote for something new, different, intelligent and ready to change this country and fix the absolute disaster from Hurricane Bush. Think of Barack Obama as a sunny day and John McCain as a Category 5 hurricane. Sarah Palin is the storm in The Day After Tomorrow.

Vote for change. Vote for Obama.

For My Grandparents



This is for everyone's grandparents who are a tad reluctant to vote for Obama.

See? Other old people are doing it! You should too.

Wow. McCain Sure Loves Lying


Yesterday John McCain spoke to Fox News, the only news station on the planet who believes McCain is the right choice and he told them how happy he is with his campaign and how he is so damn happy to be the underdog.

Excuse me while I lose my lunch.

The most horrible thing to creep out of his mouth was in regards to his running mate Sarah Palin. When asked if Palin had hurt his campaign he had this to offer, "She has excited and energized our base. She is a direct counterpoint to the liberal feminist agenda for America. She has a wonderful family. She's a reformer. She's a conservative. She's the best thing that could have happened to my campaign and to America," he said.

The best thing that could have happened to America?!?!?!

Is he for real? His choice of Sarah Palin was the most selfish choice on the planet and it has proven itself to be a destructive pick for the McCain campaign. Countless people, magazines and newspapers have endorsed Obama recently and one of the main reasons was because of McCain's absolute lapse of judgement when choosing the moron from Alaska.

The idea that John McCain thinks Sarah Palin is the best thing that has happened to America is absolutely insulting and untrue. I can't think of anything worse for this country than Sarah Palin. She represents all that is wrong and evil in this world and she offers nothing to this country that we need right now. We don't need her folksy nonsense or her lack of experience and ignorance. We need change.

We need Barack Obama.

The Controversial Electoral College



When it comes to electing a new president of the United States, one would imagine that it is the people of the country who choose the new official. Some may say that their vote really counts, but exactly how true is that belief? The Electoral College system is something most people have heard of but don’t really know that much about. To sum it up quickly in laymen’s terms, it takes the vote out of the hands of the people and gives it to the states.
According to the Constitution, the people are empowered to make a choice through popular election of the people who represent them in the US congress and their state legislatures. By doing so, the Electoral College is created and its members are the ones who choose the next president.
This doesn’t mean that your voice means nothing. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have any say in the presidential elections. The representatives of states in the Electoral College are supposed to vote the way the people of their state vote. This may not seem fair to some but when you are working with hundreds of millions of people, there needs to be some organization.
If the popular vote was all that mattered and was all that was necessary to elect a new president into the White House, eleven states could ultimately decide the new president and then thirty-nine other states would cry foul. I don’t necessarily agree with how the system works, but I do agree there should be some order. And this is the United States of America, not just America.
The only way that the Electoral College could be modified or done away with completely would be through a constitutional amendment. I believe the only way that something like this could happen would be if a president won the Electoral College vote while losing the popular vote. That has happened three times in history: in 1876 with Rutherford B. Hayes, shortly after in 1888 with Benjamin Harrison, and most recently in 2000 with George W. Bush. People were furious when Bush beat Al Gore and the eight years that followed were a disaster, leaving it clear in people’s minds that the Electoral College system is rather shady.
I’d be willing to bet that this year would be a lot different. Barack Obama is on his way to becoming our next president. He will win the popular vote and is looking very good in the Electoral College. With the lowest approval rating in history going to Bush right now, you can bet your bottom dollar that if McCain is elected without the popular vote this year, the United States of America will go up in smoke. I think there would be a call or two for some constitutional amending to be going on. There are too many people who care about this country too much to let the Bush Administration live on vicariously through the McCain Administration (just typing those words gave me the chills).
There are numerous arguments against the Electoral College. The most frequent of those arguments would be the chance of a president to be elected who didn’t win the popular vote. After asking around I found that people were also concerned with the Electoral College system because it may not accurately portray the true feelings of the population and so, the country. I’m sure sore as can be when watching McCain and Palin rallies and seeing all the hate and bigotry taking place. I surely don’t want to be cast alongside those hate-mongers if McCain wins the election. Because everybody knows the world will see us all like that if this country can’t change course and head in a new direction with Obama.
Barring that hypothetical scenario with McCain losing the popular but winning the presidency, the Electoral College isn’t the worst thing out there. There are very few positives about the way it works. A few examples of this would be how it improves the status of minority interests and it upholds a system of government and representation. However, I believe the system is flawed.
There is always a time for change. Now is the time, finally. The country is demanding change like crazy, be it from both sides of the aisle. Who is more honest and better qualified to lead us through that change? I believe the country, people and states alike, will make the right decision. I sure hope they will. And if for some horrible reason things go wrong and the popular vote goes to Obama while the Electoral goes to McCain, the only change people will be looking for (besides other countries to live in) will be a change to the system and an amendment to the Constitution.

A Reminder to Smile



Just a quick break from all the horrible things going on in the world right now.

Palin Needs To Study A Map



So apparently while Sarah Palin was off in Wasilla reading all infinity of her magazines and newspapers, she failed to look at a globe.

I love the reaction of the crowd after she said it. A collective, "what the f*ck" permeates from the crowd as she continued speaking out the wrong hole.

I'll Take Blue Over Red




As if people need any more reasons to vote for Obama in this election.

Olbermann Hits Nail On Head Again



Once again I am at a loss for words. Keith Olbermann said it perfectly.

Rachel Maddow Calls Out Sarah Palin



Am I insane? How is this going on? How is she allowed to get away with blatantly lying to the country?

She looks into cameras and speaks clearly into microphones saying things like, "no abuse of power" and "no unethical behavior." Those are both lies! Who does she think she's kidding? That would be like if OJ had been convicted of murder and stood up and was like, "no, they are wrong, I am innocent" and then moon-walked out of the courtroom! Palin has not stopped lying to America and the world since she was welcomed uninvited into our lives just two months ago.

Breathe Grant, breathe . . . only three more weeks of this and then she'll take the long walk of shame home, all the way to back to Alaska.

It Must Stop



I really can't believe my eyes and ears while watching this video.

They very idea I share the same nationality as these ignorant, hate-filled bigots makes me ill to my stomach. How can people really say such horrible things and be so naive? You will never hear such a thing at an Obama rally.

You may hear people talking negatively about John McCain sure, but you won't hear straight out lies and threats. There are people who honestly believe Obama is not American and that he is a terrorist. It's absolutely out of control and people sure love to talk about it, but nothing is really happening to stop it.

John McCain attempted to be a good guy last week when taking the microphone from an elderly woman who called Obama an Arab. McCain said, "no ma'am" and went on to call him a "decent man." He didn't bother addressing the fact that people are spewing out violent and dangerous words. These lies and smears must stop. It's incredibly un-American and unnecessary.

Tomorrow nights debate should be interesting. The final round. McCain claims he is going straight at Obama about his relationship to Bill Ayers. We'll see. He also said before the second debate that the gloves would be off. They remained on as he wandered around the stage like a lost child. So far it is Obama 2-0 . . . he goes for the sweep tomorrow from Hofstra University in New York.

100 Days and Counting!


These might be the most exciting 100 days in American history.

With only 100 days left before George W. Bush is no longer president, people everywhere can go to bed every night smiling, knowing that the following morning will be closer and closer to a Bushless America.

George W. Bush's approval rating is hovering around 20%... a staggering 86% of Americans believe this country is in really bad shape. Only 10% think things are alright.

After taking on a country with a booming economy and surplus, Bush was able to completely wipe that all away, taking this country backwards instead of forwards while doing so. Since his inauguration in 2000 we have seen 9/11, two wars that won't end, Katrina (and the lack of government response), destruction of a surplus, creation of a monstrous deficit and a financial crisis that is spreading around the world faster than fire and threatening the demise of business as we know it. Great resume George.

If there is one thing we can be happy about, it's the prospects of an Obama presidency. Time is dwindling down and the gap in the polls continues to widen by the day. Obama remains cool, calm and collected while McCain has become increasingly more desperate and dangerous.

Americans are smart (for the most part) and we know what we need. Obviously there will always me some idiots out there... remember, 10% of people think the USA is doing great... but don't fret... good will overcome bad and Obama will win this election.

Barack Obama

Boys in Blue Taking Charge


John McCain continued what has become a hate-filled and despicable campaign with a rally today in Wisconsin.

Again, people screamed out 'traitor' while McCain attempted to slam Obama on tax policy. While these hicks hooted and hollered about Obama being a traitor, McCain smiled like a fool, only encouraging these hate-mongers to continue with their low class behavior.

On top of that, McCain's argument was something that has been debunked. So McCain is lying... big surprise. He continues not talking about the economic crisis while instead concentrating all of his efforts on mudslinging.

For those of you out there unaware... here are the latest polls from some of the more popular outlets.

Gallup: Obama/Biden 51%, McCain/Palin 41%
Pollster: Obama/Biden 49%, McCain/Palin 41%
RCP: Obama/Biden 49%, McCain/Palin 42%
CBS: Obama/Biden 47%, McCain/Palin 43%
ABC: Obama/Biden 50%, McCain/Palin 46%
NBC: Obama/Biden 49%, McCain/Palin 43%
FOX: Obama/Biden 45%, McCain/Palin 39%
CNN: Obama/Biden 53%, McCain/Palin 45%

So go ahead John McCain... continue your strategy. Talk about Barack Obama. Have your disgrace of a running mate Sarah Palin stir up more hateful rallies... it won't work. As you can see from the polls.

Maybe Not A Great Depression, But A Damn Good One




I wish I had a sled, because that drop looks steep.

With the Dow Jones dropping almost 700 points in the opening minutes of trade today, after dropping 700 yesterday, the question on everybody's mind is, will this ever stop?

Of course I can't answer this question... I'm no economist... I'm surely not clairvoyant.

But what I can do is vote for something different in a few weeks. I can easily do that. So can you. We can all get together and vote for a new, fresh face with new ideas. Someone who will actually put the country first instead of talk about it all the time. Someone who hasn't been swinging from George W. Bush's every word for the past eight years. Someone who hasn't been following the same failed ideas and policies for the past three decades in office.

We need a change before it's too late. This is our last chance.

Please Just End Already


With the VP debate in the past and only one presidential debate to go, all the candidates are on the road speaking to voters, trying their darnedest to gain more and more support.

I just wish it was over already.

I am so sick and tired of this circus. Sure it's fun to make fun of Sarah Palin and John McCain but I count down the days till they are out of my life and off of my television.

The McCain campaign has become absolutely disgraceful in the past few weeks and grows more and more hateful each and every day. Cindy McCain has even gone as far to say, 'the Obama campaign is running the dirtiest campaign in American history.' How does such a hypocrite look herself in the mirror?

McCain and Palin rallies are beginning to resemble lynch mobs. People scream out 'terrorist' and 'kill him' at the mention of Barack Obama's name. The only thing missing are the torches.

The people that support McCain blow my mind. After speaking to some McCain supporters, I realized the only ammo they have are cheap shots against Barack Obama, most of which have already been fact-checked and proven false. Most McCain supporters are lazy, angry and at least a tad racist, unwilling to look at the facts and read about what's actually going on here.

A lot of McCain supporters couldn't tell you the difference between McCain or Obama's health plan policies or where they stand on the war. But they can tell you that Obama was 'pallin' around with terrorists and that Obama had a crazy pastor.

The idea that Sarah Palin can scream to a bunch of hate-mongers, "who is Barack Obama" is absolutely insane. Who exactly is Sarah Palin? She has been around for less than two months. No one really knows that much about her... and the little we do know is far from impressive. Actually, it's down right laughable. Even her running mate doesn't know that much about her. How dare she stand up in front of the masses, claiming to be your everyday, average American while smearing a good man's name. Claiming he is a terrorist. Implanting crazy, radical and asinine ideas into the small, thick heads of paranoid old conservatives and slack-jawed hillbillies.

John McCain and Sarah Palin's actions lately have been diabolical and desperate, taking advantage of all the stupid people in America. Most of these stupid people voting for McCain would actually get the shaft under a McCain presidency. People who are too dumb and lazy to actually read about the issues. People who saw the color of Obama's skin and needed nothing more to make their decision.

I just want it to end. I don't want to get in arguments with friends over politics anymore. I don't want to hear Sarah Palin's obnoxious and folksy nonsense coming from my TV. I don't want to hear McCain calling people, 'my friends.' I think I'm looking forward to Bush leaving office almost as much as I'm looking forward to Sarah Palin fluttering off to Alaska. I just wish it would happen right now.

Round 2 Goes to Obama



After a much anticipated and long awaited second debate, Barack Obama and John McCain went at it again, this time from Nashville, Tennessee.

In a debate that was supposed to be focused on domestic policy, the struggling economy was the main issue at hand, taking up over half of the 90 minutes. Entitlement reform, health care and energy policies were top questions.

John McCain needed just about a miracle in this debate to regain any ground he has lost to Obama. There were no such miracles.

Again, John McCain relied on his library style whisper talk, a condescending tone that is becoming more difficult to stomach. He didn't attack Obama the way he had planned, never once taking off the figurative gloves for battle. He failed miserably on a few jokes that left the crowd silent while crickets chirped in the background.

Barack Obama, the next president of the United States, was once again cool as a cucumber while actually answering the questions asked and slamming McCain when necessary. Just like the first debate, McCain tried telling the American people that Obama's tax plan would hurt the country and how Obama's health care plan is garbage.

Again, McCain had no idea what he was talking about. Again, John McCain tried smearing Barack Obama's good name. Again, he failed miserably.

At one point, McCain pointed to Senator Obama and referred to him as, 'that one.' Ouch. That is disgustingly hate-filled and borderline racist. You have to be truly immature and ignorant to say something like that. Obama didn't let it bother him and went on linking McCain to George W. Bush.

McCain said over and over again, 'my friends.' But he failed to mention the middle class for the second straight debate. So who are these friends he is speaking to? Oil companies? Wall Street executives? George W. Bush? Surely not "Joe six-packs" and hockey moms.

McCain also suggested that Barack Obama simply doesn't understand, again. This time, Obama made McCain eat those pretentious words by saying, "Senator McCain, in the last debate and again today, suggested that I don't understand. It's true. There are some things I don't understand. I don't understand how we ended up invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11."

When it came to health care, moderator Tom Brokaw (who did a mediocre job) asked the two candidates if health care is a right, responsibility or a privilege. McCain said responsibility but failed to respond why it is a responsibility. Obama said health care should be a right. I agree.

This is an incredibly wealthy nation and millions of people don't have health insurance... millions. It doesn't make sense.

Obama showed us last night that he is the man for the job. Every poll out there showed Obama winning last night. Obama is opening up his lead in numerous battleground states and the leads will only continue to grow. Things are looking bad for McCain and I can promise you his campaign will only get uglier and more hate-filled in the next few weeks.

The next debate will be at Hofstra University in New York. Tom Brokaw won't be there. Hopefully McCain won't be there either. Maybe he'll realize that his campaign is a joke and that people see through his hateful, ignorant, Bush-like rhetoric and failed ideas. I doubt that will happen. He'll be there. And just like last night, Obama will be prepared.

Keith Olbermann Destroys Sarah Palin



From ESPN's Sportscenter to eating politicians alive...

Obama and McCain Square Off Tonight, Again


With the second presidential debate looming tonight, both candidates are thinking of ways to win over the undecided voters.

With less than a month to go, both Obama and McCain need to step it up and really show us who is worthy of the presidency. Most people have made up their minds. I have made up my mind. Obama had me at hello.

McCain promised voters last week in Colorado that he would be going after Obama tonight, gloves off. He has also stepped up his attacks against Obama as well in the past week.

Palin is desperately trying to call Obama a terrorist because of his connection to a radical anti-way activist who bombed some places in the 60s and 70s but is now a professor. Obama was a child when the Weather Underground movement was underway.

McCain and Palin faithfuls, or what I like to call, ignorant hillbillies, have even gone so far as shouting out things like, 'terrorist' and 'kill him' when hearing the name Obama at rallies. And even worse, neither McCain or Palin came to Obama's defense when those absolutely hate-filled, racist and destructive words came out of their supporters mouths. That is worse than Obama's connection to Bill Ayers.

Palin's desperation even had her talking about Jeremiah Wright, Obama's old pastor and a topic that has been dead for months now. Just stop already.

It's almost funny, John McCain is campaigning like it is the early twentieth century. He forgets there is the internet (probably because he can't use a computer) and forgets about things like fact checking, video archives and records of just about everything ever. For a guy who speaks so frequently about his record, he must really believe that the American people are so naive and so stupid that he can just lie and lie and lie about Obama. John, you can't... we're a lot smarter than you think we are.

The dirtier the McCain and Palin campaign gets the better for Obama. This campaign has been going on forever now. What seems like an eternity. People don't want to hear all of that now, especially when they are fabricated lies and spewed in mass quantities.

In a country with such a full plate, people want to hear where these candidates plan to take us and how they are going to clean up the mess left by the Bush Administration. The American people deserve know.
