The Debate

Thoughts off the the top of my head:

-Barack Obama keeps falling into the trap of explaning why tax increases on the wealthiest are okay. He just needs to keep hammering home that his plan will benefit MOST Americans, which stengthens our overall economy. He's right, but I'm already voting for him and don't buy into the nonsence that he's going to raise my taxes. Keep it simple, stupid.

-Maybe it's because I'm watching this in HD, but John McCain looks like he's crying.

-Joe the magical plumber: John McCain thinks you're an idiot.

-McCain would fight for line item veto? Uhh... wasn't that already found unconstitutional?

-"Senator Obama: I'm not President Bush." Glad McCain has decided to clear up the conclusion.

-Senator Obama: "Young people aren't an interest group: they're our future!" No wonder Obama is winning the youth vote.

Why Women Hate Sarah Palin

Nice Try, Time.

Fortunately, those aren't the reasons why women hate Sarah.

Contrary to the article:

I don't hate Governor Palin because she's handsome. I'm less than half her age, and I haven't given birth to five children. Let's just say I wouldn't trade places with her. In fact, when she was first selected, I was sort of excited to see what it would be like to have a girly-girl run for potential commander-in-chief. I mean, there's a silly thing that happens to female politicians in this country-- a lot of them look like dykes. Sarah Palin, of course, does not. So I was curious how her appearance could factor in. On the bright side of her candidacy, now that I know I don't have to chop my hair off and wear pant suits should I want to run for office one day.

However, it is true: I dislike her confidence. As she says, she doesn't blink. She's so confident, she doesn't think things through. And I, of course, have a problem with someone who uses Stephen Colbert's method of decision-making, running this country.

Could she embarrass us? I'm not so sure. Americans have been exposed to different women in power, so she's not the be-all end-all for women.

In fact, it's not Gov. Palin that I hate. I hate Senator McCain's cynical and naked political calculation, gambling this country's future to achieve his personal ambition to be president. It's obvious that she doesn't know much, and I don't think that's her fault. I don't think she ever imagined she would be in this position, so she never prepared for it. This one is all John McCain's fault.
