go ahead McC: make my day!


I sure hope this is the dude chosen as the republican veep candidate. When you combine it with the purported platform of the grand old party:
"MINNEAPOLIS | The Republican Party will maintain its call for a constitutional ban on abortion and opposition to same-sex marriage"

So, Americans are worried about the economy, the war, gas prices, but YES! Keep on beating that drum John.

With these moves, you figure the dems will kick some a$$ in November.

You know, my husband woke up this morning and told me he had a dream in which he caused a bit of "disruption" at the Republican Convention.

And then we both laughed. MWA HA HA!

I don't care if a man marries one of the little animals on your pots as long as I have a job and a roof over my head.

Sigh.

I sure hope so - but the polls sure are looking scary. I don't understand how that can be.

Oh, but as we've seen in the past two elections...fishy things can happen at the polls when there's still paperless voting machines in use across the country. One would hope we aren't in for a three-peat of that fiasco!

We've just had a dose of brutal honesty injected into politics up here. The ruling Conservatives (Republican-Lite) have admitted that calling out next election this fall is part of the PM's long-term strategy to "destroy the Liberal party".

Apparently, running the country is an afterthought.

I don't want a constitutional ban on same sex marriage or abortion, but I'm a little worried that if the dems take the white house, who's going to pay for all the new programs they're promising?

On who's going to pay, I have a dream... I hope Halliburton has to pay back a big chunk of the money it raked in on those no-bid contracts in Iraq. I'd also like to see some investigating of the shady deals in the oil business, and maybe levying some stiff fines for windfall profit-taking and felonious behaviour.

Gee Sil, thanks for putting it so nicely. Plus, rich dudes like these two can pony up a few more bucks. They make it on the backs of the little people, they can give some back.

I'm listening to Barack's speech at the convention and hoping with all of my hopes that America wakes up to the rest of the world needing the republicans NOT to get in.

They have really messed up the world and over here in Europe, we really think 16 through to a 100 times before committing to coming in through airports policed by Homelands security ...

I'm a New Zealander but we had a guy trying to get out a day or two late on his visa. He was locked up, out of contact for a month. There was the Roman lawyer who was taken in shackles and kept locked up out of reach of his well-placed American in-laws for a week ... by mistake.

Here's to Barack changing Bush's American back to the country everyone out here used to love.
