It really isn't the lack of a third party that gets me, it's the decade of heavy, heavy shit going down and through it all we can't budge a 50/50 ideological deadlock??  Mind boggling.


People aren't quick to budge on moral and human rights issues.

Events immediately preceding this photo:
  • Obama tells McCain that McCain has earned his respect, is tired of being enemies
  • Obama extends hand of friendship, wary McCain does not trust Obama, looks back and forth to crowd for advice
  • Crowd cheers for McCain to shake Obama's hand
  • McCain and Obama shake hands and smile to delight of crowd
  • McCain turns to walk away but Obama does not release handshake
  • Obama stops smiling, pulls McCain back towards him

A textbook Randall Savage Handshake Attack from Obama.

I think Obama just said, "Hey John, ever had a hertz donut?"
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.

That's a really badly drawn fist. Did a Republican draw that?

I totally did the "want to get your palm red?" trick to my ladyfriend recently.

I am also a fan of the "planting tulips" joke, viz., "plant your two lips right here."

I believe that the sentiment is that Obama and his supporter's fingernails are too long to make a proper fist.

This "McCain can't use a computer" ad is what they mean by taking the gloves off?  After the mindboggling lies and hypocrisy of the past week? WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!

Then again, I thought that "celebrity" ad was dopey but it had an effect, so I don't know anymore (or ever, really).

It's clearly an elitist fist.

It's in mid-terrorist fist jab.

Barack poster my friends and I put around SF:




Also, nobody seems to be talking about the Ron Paul factor. He is McCain's Nader!

Nah, he's our Nader too. Trust me. I have lots of liberally-leaning friends that go for Ron Paul for some reason I can't quite explain.

Just forward them R.P.'s classic quote:

"Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions."

I kind of like him. I don't agree with most of his positions (e.g., the quote above), but in terms of foreign policy, he's just about the only candidate I've heard who seems prepared to fully engage with reality.
