Jaime, the atmosphere is electric! I went to an Obama rally in Leesburg, Virginia last week, and it was awesome! There were thousands of people there, but we all had to process down a street bristling with McCain-Palin signs. Outside the rally, there was a small band of protesters holding up poster board and magic marker signs scrawled with slogans like "Obama is not Pro Life!" and "Experience over retoric!" (sic)

I think some states are experiencing a lot more election year acrimony from ballot initiatives like Prop 8 in California. Personally, I find the idea of amending constitutions by referendum to be dangerous and completely counter to the values of our republican form of government. Why have a legislature at all? Let's have mob rule!

But I digress.

right now the word i'd use to describe it is excruciating. this daily show segment kind of sums it up: http://www.comedycentral.com/videos/index.jhtml?videoId=189163.

i just want tuesday to GET HERE ALREADY!!

Jaime

I think what really gets me about Prop 8 and the whole idea of overturning a state supreme court decision with a popular vote is that it seems to me that this is a gross misprision of the whole POINT of the supreme court, which is to interpret the constitution and protect and uphold our freedoms despite the sentiments of the mob.

But, nevermind. If prop 8 passes, it will be a setback, but only a temporary one. Time is not on the side of this particular discrimination, and the right side will win in the end.

Oh my god. Check this out. Apparently, the new line of attack this news cycle is that Obama's anti-semitic. This McCain spokesman should never have been allowed on television. McCain's campaign is a train wreck! What would his presidency look like?

Jaime

Jesus Christ. The INCOMPETENCE of it is staggering. I cannot believe how much John McCain has allowed his good name to be completely and comprehensively destroyed by this campaign. Also, giving Obama crap about knowing Rashid Khalidi, or calling him anti-semitic for being willing to support the rights of Palestinians as well as Israelis is simply reprehensible, as is using Khalidi as a token evil Arab that all the knee-jerk plebian rubes can collectively hate. Rashid Khalidi is not anti-semitic, he is a well respected Palestinian historian and scholar, and Israel is not infallible. What a fat load.

I am really looking forward to seeing McCain's walk of shame when this is over. He's earned it.

Jaime, did you read the New Yorker article (also in the latest issue) about the prevalence of teen pregnancy, STDs, and divorce among Evangelicals? It's very good.

Jason

Okay, so I hate to be the one to post this, and to be even more obsessed with the election than anyone else on the entire planet, but this is so embarrassing, it almost made me feel sorry for Sarah Palin. It's not her fault really. It's the incompetent McCain campaign staff. I could only get through the first two minutes and twenty seconds.

Jaime

Oh god. So embarrassing.

And, you are not the most obsessed about this election; I am.

“And there must be something about San Francisco and he because it’s like I heard on Fox News today, it’s like a truth serum where when he’s there, he seems to be more candid, and remember it was there that he talked about, there you go, the bitter clingers, the cling-ons, all of us, I guess, you know holding on to religion and guns and, um, so something about he being there in San Francisco.”

-Sarah Palin

Jaime

OH MY GOD! THAT'S IT! HE'S GAY!!!!! I hope he grows a big Castro-style moustachio!

Jason

I know! That "truth serum" she's talking about must be all that HIV+ spooge Obama is guzzling straight from the tools of radical fairies in a cocaine snorting orgy of extreme left liberalism. Astonishing that she sussed all that out from Fox News!

Oh my god. I just voted for That One, and it felt great.

rcjohnso

Wow. Just wow.

I'm still expecting to wake up tomorrow morning and see on the news that McCain won.
