My personal thoughts on the McCain Campaign

Ok. So like the McCain camp is the girlfriend. The American people are the boyfriend. Boyfriend breaks up with the girl and starts dating someone else. Ex is mad, desperate to get him back. Tries everything.

Your new girl is going to cheat on you
I heard she gave a guy an STD

finally
I'm pregnant with your baby!

Excerpt cut from UNDECIDED by David Sedaris

"To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of $hit with bits of broken glass in it?”"

Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
Stolen.
I saw him at a reading in Baltimore a coupla weeks ago, and he read that piece. It was high larious.

Christ, I'm just quickly copy/pasting from work, which I shouldn't be doing. I'll fix it.
McCain's campaign is truly bothersome. The outright exaggerations teetering on lies, the fear-mongering, hate-fostering, divisive tactics, not to mention the anger, and snark... And people are supporting him? Don't these things say something about the kind of leader he would be? I think so, says he's not the kind of leader that I want, and further, not the kind of leader we need.

That made McCain look bad in my eyes and then eventually I saw that he was doing the same.

I don't care what party someone belongs to...a smart person becomes suspicious when someone tries to scare you into doing something. And when you have to LIE to me to make me do something, my better judgment tells me it's something that I probably shouldn't be doing.

So McCain "supporters" and their ridiculous antics just made things even worse for McCain in my eyes. And then he finally began using their tactics...No one likes to know they're being manipulated. All of that manipulation just left me feeling ill at ease about voting for him.

Then he announced running with Palin and that was it...my vote was gone.

What is unfortunate is that while fear and scare tactics are being undeniably used in grave excess by the McCain campaign, his supporters don't seem to see it that way.

What is sadly ironic is that the McCain campaign and it's supporters keep tossing big bad "communism" around.

I doin't think I ever would have voted for him in the first place, but having Sara be VP is horrifying and she pretty much spat in the face of my family, and with my husband currently in Iraq and his battalion already scheduled for a 2010 deployment in Afghanistan I want these wars to be over ASAP, not be there for "100 years." Sure is easy to say things when your loved ones aren't affected.
