Didn't she and Biden agree on gay people?

biden looked worried when the subject was brought up, knowing that the way to win an election is appeasing the backward midwest christians. he glossed over it in a sad and vague typical politician way. it's annoying because it's at odds with what he and obama have said before but he has to say it to try and stop the opposition from winning the christian vote.

palin on the other hand looked directly into the camera and definitively stated her point.

it's those christian voters that the republicans have been hinting to that barack hussein obama is somehow related to saddam hussein and is secretly a muslim.

palin is a creationist. she genuinely believes in magic, angels, miracles, blessings, vengeful gods, messiahs and all that absolute bullshit. she wants it taught in schools. there's a very, very good chance that she could actually have to take control of the united states. that just leaves me slack jawed. it's like asking someone with a paranoid narcissistic personality disorder to hold a chainsaw next to a load of school children.

she's not fit to govern, but because she has whiter teeth and well-botoxed eyebrows, she's going to win it for mccain.

They both said they support giving gay couples every right they want short of marriage. Saying she "hates gay people" based on that response is just dumb.

That's even dumber. McCain has already lost.

it's not based on that response. her church (and everyone knows how religious she is) promotes conferences that convert homosexuals into hetrosexuals through prayer. alaska was one of the first states to ban gay marriage. if that's not an anti-gay stance i really don't know what is.

in my reality, if you think that homosexuals need curing and don't have the right to enter into marriage, you are anti-homosexuals.

as for mccain losing, the rest of the planet thought that bush had lost last time. i wouldn't put it past america voting a republican regime in again.

especially given mccain is a war veteran hawk and palin is a hard-line christian who looks like a celebrity news reporter. you couldn't imagine a better team for the midwest.

You just said earlier that the one thing Palin made clear in the debate was that she "hates gay people." That's clearly not true.

One can still hold out hope that McCain will be elected and Americans can enjoy yet another temper-tantrum overseas, but it's not going to happen. Obama is the luckiest politician of all time and the financial crisis has secured his victory.

lucky that the republicans have mightily fucked up america, iraq, afghanistan, the us (and potentially the world) economy and the way america is viewed overseas? i think america (and the world) would be very lucky to get obama. even if at the very least he is the lesser of two evils.

It's the economy stupid.

Obama has been tracking up ever since the major Wall St bust 2-3 weeks ago. McCain had some schtick in his favour based on his military credentials, but has blatantly shown NO understanding of economics at all. I don't think he can win an election where he has to credibly articulate policies to do with domestic regulation of the financial markets.

A tough break, he was doing really well up until the damn burst. Obama *should* win, because electing a 70 year old idiot warrior to solve an economic crisis makes no sense in anyone's book.

On the other hand, electing a 47-year old first-term Senator with no discernible experience or accomplishments isn't a great way to solve an economic crisis, either. America is well and truly fucked in this election.

The next prime minister of Canada -- who we'll find out in 10 days -- has a Masters in Economics at least.

It was funny to hear the opposition parties argue the solution to getting Canada out of the economy is to introduce new taxes ASAP. You could practically see steam coming from the ears of the PM.

according to palin, obama is "palling around with terrorists".

i can imagine there are some more underhanded tactics on their way. probably uncovering him as a secret muslim or something.

It gets worse. It turns out he lives in the same neighbourhood as a university professor who used to have ties to weak domestic terrorism. I know I'm shaken to the core.

I'm honestly envious. There's a chance that neither of our presidential candidates has ever taken an economics class.

It's not libel if it's true.

Pitbulls aren't noted for their voracity or intelligence.

Pitbulls are banned in Ontario for being overly aggressive and mauling children.

Pitbulls aren't bad dogs. They are inbred and mistreated to become bad dogs. The dog on the Little Rascals was a pitbull.
