What McCain "Doesn't Seem to Understand"

Did you catch the debate?

McCain was so condescending to Obama with no eye contact and waving those little pincer arms. "I know how to win wars," he said, even though he lost in Vietnam. His world view seems so myopic, like he was missing the real big picture because he's so focused on "winning" in Iraq. Keeping military honor. Not seeing defeat. Sound like a vendetta?

My friend Tony says, "John McCain sees life through the bars of his cell in the Hanoi Hilton." And that's just it. He doesn't represent the vast diversity of our country. Imagine if I saw life and foreign policy through the narrow scope of a pair of pink gay glasses? Oh wait, I do!

Should I run for President?

John McCain sees life through the bars of his cell in the Hanoi Hilton.

Joe Biden sees life from the bar at the Washington Hilton.

Barack Obama sees life through the legs of Paris Hilton.

Sarah Palin can see Russia from her house.

Latest Rasmussen poll has Obama ahead in North Carolina by 2 points, which GWB won by 12 points. This could be a landslide, unless Joe Biden flashes or harasses Sarah Palin in the debate this week. Rumors that Palin's 17 year old daughter and her VERY reluctant boyfriend are being rushed into a wedding the 2nd week of October in order to bolster her Family credentials. I get all my best news these days from the supermarket tabloids like the National Enquirer.

Hey Jesse -

You've got my vote. I'm sure you wouldn't view life only through pink gay glasses. But, um, where DID you leave those things ...? The next challenge: an out President.

Sorry, Jesse, but I'm already endorsing a queer candidate:

I am really tired of Republicans who are positioning themselves as change agents. And the ones blaming the Democrats for "blocking" all their valient efforts to avoid economic chaos since Clinton left office. Hey, weren't they in control of the White House for 8 years and Congress for 6?
