that graph doesn't show the portion of "stupid" that count as "tiger petters", my personal favourite demographic.

I'm sure you all know this already, but I have to chortle.  First, "For the reasons explained in section IV of this report, I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act."

Oh man.  McCain's like, "Please, Republican base, can you please stop being openly racist?  Please?  Just for this one month?"

Wow. I try and try not to be an effete blue-state snob, but then I see footage like this where representatives of "the base" turn out to support their guy. And sometimes members of the base are pretty fucking base.

Also: If McCain cares so much about maintaining a respectful tone, why did he pull that shitty avoiding-Obama's-handshake move at the end of the last debate?

McCain is too decent and human to run on the GOP ticket.  WTF.  He doesn't even want to win.

"I've read about him and he's an Arab."

Even if Obama was an Arab. I mean are all Arabs bad? Some people complain about supposed racism against foreigners in Japan, and given what little there is it's no where even close to that stupidity.

To those people, Arab = terrorist. And has ever since the Iranian hostage crisis, really. The irony that they are also the party and ideological brethren of Eric Rudolph and Timothy McVeigh escapes them.

I think he has his flaws (his temper) but I also think he's compromised his own integrity along this path and is regretting it deep down.  I suspect you're right.  Some day he'll look back on this and come clean about being feeling that he lost control of his campaign.

Personally, I can forgive and forget down the road when it comes to this guy.  Just don't want him to win.  Nothing personal.

Palin, not so much.  She's a nut and always will be.
