I just wanted to ask, are you aware than in 30 days Sarah Palin may be next in line to the throne?

If that doesn't send a shiver down your spine, then you clearly don't have one.

This next month is going to be ugly. It seems that McCain will ramp up his attacks on Obama, and no doubt will churn out a slew of extremely irritating -- and in all likelihood wildly untrue -- television ads.

Their newest tack is to attack Obama's character. Started today by Sarah Palin insinuating that Obama is "palling around" with a terrorist -- Bill Ayers. This is ludicrous for a number of reasons, not least of which the fact that Ayers' alleged sins were committed when Obama was 8. Obama wasn't even in the country when he was 8. He was in Indonesia.

Ayers is now a very respectable man. All charges were dropped, by the way, and Ayers is now a professor teaching young, impressionable minds at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He's been in Chicago politics awhile fighting for education, a cause dear to Obama. Their paths were bound to cross incidentally, especially when you consider they just happen to live in the same neighborhood. Still, they don't "hang." It's not like they're chummin' it up, throwing back beers for every White Sox game while plotting the demise of the Pentagon.

Seriously, Palin.

True! And we all know that evil terrorists flock to charity meetings to put anthrax in the coffee and lemon bars. *heddesk*

McCain, I swear I will follow you around with a defibrillator if that's what it takes to keep Palin in Cheney's man sized safe.

The fact of the matter is that if you check out the math, there's like a 33% chance he won't make it past his first term. I'm not willing to test those odds.

Ugh, I mean as much as I dislike her, I just really don't support the policies of Obama :|

While I hate the phrase "lesser of two evils" in an election year... you could always write in Stephen Colbert?

but I like McCain. Thats the odd thing... Seriously I think I'll take 4 years off and either frame Palin for something or keep McCain alive by sheer will

I know you like McCain, but like most conservatives I know, are having the Palin issue ;) If you can figure out that keeping alive by sheer will, you can add my will. I might not like McCain, but he's sure a far sight better than the banshee!

That's fair, and that's where we differ. I love Obama's policies and I think they make more sense and mirror my own hopes for government progression.

On the other hand, I also agree with a lot of the things McCain said. I think, were it not for Palin, it could've been a tricky decision for me. I have read his books, I have read his proposals, and I think it is unfair to insinuate that he would be just another Bush. I honestly think he's just trying to appeal to the crazy neo-cons, and once he gets into office it's "Fuck y'all, maverick time!" ... But at the same time, I don't like the way he's running his campaign. I do think it's dated. But Palin kills any ability for me to vote for him.

That's how I feel about McCain, I mean he could have done so much more with his campaign but I think he was so afraid of losing the GOP.

I mean the way I am, I guess my economic self is republican and the fact that McCain is socially liberal for a Republican is what I respect.
