So, what has you pissed off? The words put in his mouth, the false associations, or the outright lies?
Sigh. This is even harder on those of us who have to watch from outside, who know that the outcome of the US race affects the whole world, but we don't get to vote even once or have any influence over making sure it's counted fairly. I'm *trying* not to lose too much sleep over it, but not all that successfully. And this after working hard on the Canadian federal election, helping two Conservative candidates win their districts, and now getting ready for the convention (this is some weird country where we hold the party convention a month *after* the election). Ah well, I've found my corner of the good fight. And you'll likely find some amusement in this morning's XKCD.
Yeah I know how that feels. I'm just looking at the American elections and thinking "Hmm, how many years longer is Obama going to make the recession once he's elected?".
My favorite part are the "actions" and "words" of Obama's in the background that bear no relation to things he actually did or things he said.
Hey, I'm still an Obama supporter (have to try harder on me, Jay!) and I found the thing funny, and true. I enjoyed it on the same level you probably did (or something close).
(Keep in mind, I do not view Obama as a saint, nor do I view McCain that way (I doubt you do either), nor Palin, Harper, Gordon Brown, Joe Wurzelbacher, my neighbour, my pastor, or anyone else really (well, with the possible exception of my wife.) I keep an open mind on everyone, and vote for the lesser evil.)
