So, as I'm sure many Americans are and as you may know by now, I'm obsessed with the election.  I'm not even going to pretend not to be.  So, let me go over a few points:

1)What kind of fuckery is McCain trying to pull with this campaign "suspension" tomfoolery?  What BS.  First of all, many people around the country are reporting his ads are STILL up and he is still making the rounds on TV shows.  Secondly, it's such an obvious stunt its ridiculous.  I am obviously for Obama, but I definitely think he's handled this pretty well.  McCain was trying to put him in an awkward spot and he hasn't flinched.  They better have that damn debate tomorrow because I've been warming up my fake Tivo all week for it (I can't watch it live because I have to wake up at 5:30 a.m. to sub for Rachelle at work Saturday).  I think McCain will show up regardless, but it'd be funny if he didn't and Obama came by himself.  Well, it'd be funny to everyone but the University of Mississippi which invested alot of money in this...

2)Did any of y'all catch Sarah Palin's interview with Katie Couric?  And I thought her other interviews were bad.  Really, it's on YouTube.  It's a 2-parter totalling about 11 minutes.  Go watch it if you have time.  This woman is a fucking joke and the unintentionally confused look on Couric's face was killing me.

3)I really don't understand why polling agencies insist on polling in certain places.  Do we really need a poll to tell us that Obama is up by 23 points in Maryland or McCain is up by 30 in Oklahoma?  Why waste time and money?  IDGI.

4)It is of my opinion that if Obama takes Pennsylvania (looks likely at this time, but things can change in a wink as we've already learned), he takes the election.  I'm pretty confident he can take all of the other states he needs to take (CA, CO, CT, DE, HI, IL, IA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, NH, NJ, NM, NY, OR, RI, VT, WA, WI, and DC).  I know alot of these states are close right now, but I have faith.  I also have a feeling that NV, VA, and NC may turn blue in the end and that would just be the icing on my cake.  Shit, if even one of them turned blue it'd be icing.

Ah well, we'll see.....

NY has usually been a dem state, but now some people are in limbo after Clinton backed out. I'm one of them too.

I def don't want McCain or more so...Palin (like Matt said...it's scary to even think about it), but after Obama didn't pick Hillary as VP, not sure I'd want him either. Still, he's the better of the two.

I would say vote on the issues.

And NY is still going Dem. Hillary or no Hillary. It's NY.

President Palin is a terrifying thought. I mean, shit, that woman seriously thinks the world was created in 7 days, hates gays and opposes abortion. I just dread to imagine...

Really, go to YouTube and look up "Palin, Couric". You will laugh multiple times.
