So as I’ve scrambled to read as much as I can this morning, the theme is pretty consistent.  Obama won.  McCain failed to turn the tide.  He tried to throw some good punches, but Obama clearly was expecting that and dodged them artfully.  Many viewers found it more of the same…that is McSame Gone Angry!


6 Idiots and a Moderator

Okay so as I’m watching the post debate wrap up, NBC has 6 “Independents” or “undecided voters”.  Are you kidding me?  How on earth at this point have you not made up your mind???

We’ve got 4 Independents, one Democrat, and one Republican. 

Three out of six said they know people who will not vote for Obama because he’s black.  Funnily enough 6 out of 6 said they think Sarah Palin is a hindrance to the McCain campaign.  However 3 of the 6 said they are voting for McCain.  Can I just say that one of those people said they think Obama’s economic plan was better.  One for Obama.  Two are still undecided.  One is leaning Obama because of McCain’s temperment.  She needs more time to “look at the issues”. 


My take on the Final Debate…

Well, it’s no secret to anyone who looks at my blog for…oh say 3 seconds…that I am a Democrat.  I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty fair Democrat.  My husband I think would say I criticize Democrats nearly as much as I do Republicans.

I’m going to call the third and final debate for Senator Obama.  Senator Obama to me looked quite poised, and at times amused.  Almost as if he knew this is where Senator McCain was going to go.  Negative.  I’d say Senator McCain appeared desperate.  He seemed overly agitated, but hey lets be honest what else is new?

The Debate – Take One

So I was going to try to refrain from commenting till the debate was over, but man I’m going nuts.  I’m sitting in my hotel screaming at the tv. 

First of all, I hate how John McSame tries to talk to people like he’s the disapproving father figure.  He is very patronizing.  I’m also amazed that John McCain tries to say he’s disputed every negative comment Republicans have made.  That’s ridiculous!  First of all, who has the time?  Second of all I don’t remember him saying Sarah Palin was wrong when she stated Obama palls around with terrorists.

Point one, Obama.  The American people are more interested in issues than our “hurt feelings”.  Round one for Team Obama.  Senator McCain is looking petulant and frustrated.  I wonder if he knows it’s not going well for him??

Why did McCain pick Sarah Palin???  “She’s a role model for women.”  Is that a joke?  She’s a reformer?  I’m not sure if I want to yell, cry, puke, or laugh!

I guess if you don’t trip on the way to the podium you get a free pass….

I don’t know how many of you watched the debate, but does she really need to wink at the camera?  Are we as women so pathetic in our knowledge that we actually think using silly phrases and stupid terms we can wink our way through a vice presidential debate?

When did being smart become a hindrance to being in office?  When did we as the American voter decide that if you say things like “darn”, “maverick”, “washington outsider” you didn’t have to have the facts?!?

Why is it she can tell us she doesn’t believe in global warning and make it all okay with a smile and wink?

Since when is being folksy a replacement of knowledge?

Since when is “I’m a Joe six pack American like you” a prerequisite for running for the second highest elected position in the country?  And since when do Americans believe that someone with over $1 million and 3 homes is Joe six-pack America?!?

Okay fine.  You don’t believe in global for her and her partner.  You don’t believe in birth control for women..again you know how to vote.  You don’t believe in health care for Americans…great vote.  You believe in deregulation of the banking industry…they’re your couple…and by the way you do realize ideology like that just cost us $700 billion…and that’s if we’re lucky.

I’m a little angry today.  I’m angered by the fact that we don’t expect more than stupidity and patronizing behavior from our people running for office. And I am SUPER ANGRY about the fact that this is the woman, out of all the brilliant women in this country, that we are stuck with!!! is the best place for your personal blog or business site.
