Same as it ever was! SAME AS IT EVER WAS!

An excerpt from Cliff Schecter's book, "The Real McCain" :
Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperance. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.
I don't like McCain. I don't like him as a person, I don't like his awful big money policies, and I don't like how stiffly he moved during last night's presidential debate.

It might be a good thing if they win the presidency because you will see a whole lot more pissed off Americans that are willing to get off their butts and do something about the way "their" country is run.

But, if Mccain/Palin win the presidency I think we're all quite screwed. I'm really astonished (and terrified to be honest) that the approval ratings, according to the most recent gallup poll, Obama only leads McCain by 11 points. Really? It's that close? 53% to 41% respectively? REALLY? What is the American public thinking? Are they thinking that Palin is so loveable or that Obama really has less experience than a hockey mom who believes that dinosaurs existed with humans 5,000 years ago? Do you want the type of person that will openly call his wife a cunt to be deciding legislation on your reproductive rights?

Wake up America! If this voting for president bull shit has to happen could you at least make it your business to make an effort to really get to know these people. This is serious stuff and democracy only works for the people when the people go into these things armed with a full picture of who these people are and how they are going to make decisions about your life. If they fuck up, it's partly because we fucked up. You dig?

Okay I'll stop. On a sunnier note, an article about a group of people who are benefitting from the housing crisis, "Renters Turned Squatters." The article is about a group of renters that haven't had to pay rent for over ten months! Very neat.

Today starts an almost week long stretch of no work! Wahooo. Hurray for Columbus Day. I've updated my sidebar of good links and blogs I read so check some out and have a great week.

All Power to the People!

I'll leave you with a wonderful video:
