Well said! I've grown beyond weary of the mud slinging and rhetoric from the McCain camp. I understand that politricking requires a certain amount of it, but trend be damned; can we go about things a better way?

I laugh in the face of those who say Palin has the credentials and qualifications for a VP over Obama. While she may very well be able to handle herself in a myriad of ways, her political history contradicts her ability; yet Obama's "experience" is always thrown out there.

This race has far exceeded my ability to tolerate political discussions and watch the news. I keep up online for the most part, but again am sickened by the constant name-calling and mud-slinging.

As I said in a previous post, if your game is that tight, you won't need to play dirty as your deeds will speak volumes for you. The fact that McCain has changed his campaign slogan made me, too, throw up my mouth. I was like WTF? Are you serious? Effin jock rider! Yea, those were my exact words. I feel for those who are following his path because they remind me of the expression, "if you don't stand for something; you'll fall for anything". I'm still trying to figure out what this mofo stands for and I'm sure a number of Republicans are too, but they're either too stupid or too proud to speak up.

America is half-past due for a change and turn around. If Barack Obama can effect that, then great. If he can't, then his record will show accordingly. This race far exceeds race, color, gender; it's about America standing for something and not falling for anything.

I've dropped my two-cents in the bucket; I'm out.

Love!

@Blu: I am so beyond disgusted. Americans continue to support wealthy white male candidates who have one goal in mind - to make sure their other wealthy white male constituents continue to prosper at any expense. Look at McCain. Look at Bush.

(Note: Don't take it that I count all white males in that category.)

I still think people vote that way out of secret desire to be a part of the "good ole boys club." I've read analysis after analysis about the idiocy of voting against your own self interests to support an elite group to which you'll likely never belong.
