Oh VERY droll, Ivanhoe. I'm desperately worried that those dumb merkins will go for McCain because of his "experience" (as Biden said last night, being in a prison camp doesnt necessarily equip you for being president). Obama is SUCH a clever guy, so intelligent and educated, rational, unflappable and genuine quality rather than bumped up ego...but as I say, the merkins voted for George W. twice, so who can say what floats their boat.I am, as always, pinned to my seat.
Staggering. THe whole thing is staggering. And yet, despite McCain looking like a wax dummy and Sarah Thingy being absolutely without ANY background in running country, they are still neck and neck with Obama/Biden. I simply cannot understand the merkins.
The whole "Is Trig really her child?" angle is also proving quite intriguing. Plus, I noticed with some alarm the adornments on the walls of SP's parents' house. That kind of thing may play well in Alaska, but the hunting trophies don't do it for me!
American politics ARE nasty.In fact I guess all politics are pretty nasty. But what depresses me is that people are so shallow and stupid. Now a whole lot of people are whooping about the fact that Mrs. Palin is a woman...oh PULEEEZ, so are lots of people. Doesnt mean being a woman qualifies you for anything other than being better at having babies than men.
