McCain Picks Sarah Palin as Running Mate.


And all I can think of is why? Don't get me wrong, she has some impressive credentials and she is more conservative than McCain and she is more man than both democratic candidates combined. But she has been Governor of Alaska for less than two years. Why spend an entire campaign blasting Obama for his inexperience and then select someone with less experience as your choice for veep? Of course I am not taking into account her stint as Mayor of Wasilla.

Sarah was not my first choice, in fact she was not on my short list. I can not help but wonder if McCain was thinking of trying to lure disgruntled Hilary Clinton supporters to his ranks this November.

Still I think she will do well as VP. McCain's choice seems to have the Democrats at a loss for words. It will be interesting to see how the McCain/Palin duo reacts to the Gustov situation in New Orleans as oppossed to the Obama/Biden team.

Da Da Dot Da Da, I'm Loathing It (And Leaving IT)

There is a bit of a brouhaha over fast food giant McDonalds support of the gay and lesbian agenda. The American Famaily Assoiciation has called for a boycott of McDonalds after they donated money to the National Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and a McDonald's executive, Richard Ellis serves on the the NGLCC board of directors. But McDonald's tried to play if off.
McDonald's spokesman Bill Whitman says the company has made a financial contribution to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and a McDonald's executive serves on the chamber's board. He insists that doesn't mean that McDonald's supports "a particular lifestyle or same-sex marriage."
Excuse me? Giving money to a cause is called "supporting" that cause. Now McDonald's may have a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy with their employees so whatever Mr. Ellis does in his own time is his business. BUT; McDonald's released a press statement saying they were overjoyed to be helping the NGLCC, which sounds like an endorsement to me. They also tried to claim that the organization only helps to provide business opportunities to gay and lesbian entrepreneurs. But the NGLCC's own website says they also lobby congress to pass gay agenda items like same sex marriage. However you slice it, Macdonald's is in bed, so to speak, with the gay lesbian agenda.

The AFA is asking people to contact McDonald's and tell them they should remain neural in the cultural war. Neutral?  Cultural war? If it is a war then if you are on one side you should be asking people to join your side, not become or remain neutral. If this is a cultural war then the AFA is surrendering. I say boycott McDonald's until they live up to their claim of being "family friendly".  Family friendly organizations do not support causes that would destroy the family. I'll miss sausage McMuffins the most. - Christian Group Boycotts McDonald's for Supporting Gay Chamber of Commerce

It's 3AM and the (Cell) Phone is Ringing

It’s 3am and your children are safe and asleep.
But there’s a phone in the house and it is ringing.
Something is happening in the world
Your vote decided who made that call.
Can you ever sleep comfortably again knowing Obama has your number?

Cracks Appear in the Obamalith Base

Poll shows McCain in 5-point lead over Obama


After being ahead most of the summer, Barack Obama's lead in the polls has evaporated. John McCain has a 5 point lead according to a Zogby poll. What could be happening to the Obamassiah's credibility? Hmmm, could be that all the policy reversals he's been going through.

"That hairline difference between nuance and what appears to be flip-flopping is hurting him with liberal voters," Zogby said.

I love how liberals think that reversing your position occasionally is considered "nuanced" but too much is flip-flopping.  So who is jumping the Obama ship? No one group in particular. I seems his support is eroding across all his followers.

The dip in support for Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president, cut across demographic and ideological lines. He slipped among Catholics, born-again Christians, women, independents and younger voters. He retained the support of more than 90 percent of black voters.

I have made it no secret that I do NOT support Obama nor will I vote for him. I do challenge my fellow African Americans to explain to me what it is exactly that Obama offers as a black candidate.  I mean aside from the historical footnote of being the first black POTUS, do the 90% of blacks that support Obama think that once he is in office, he's going to usher in some new age of black prosperity? Is he going to throw open the governmental coffers and pay every black person for all the persecution suffered at the hands of "Mr. Charlie" all those years?  Why would you support an absolute novice based solely on race? Inquiring minds want to know.

While I Was Away

Ever have one of those periods where no matter what you did things just continued to colapse? Or every time you took two steps forward you were forced one step back? Me too. And it started for me around the end of June and continues still.  I won't bore you with my whiny details, I'll just say that I had little desire to do anything but sleep.  Well I see a light at the end of the tunnel, and every fiber of my being tells me it is an oncoming train. Oh well. bottom line is I have gotten some energy back and I am fighting the malaise that had crippled me. So I am posting again. Yea me!

So what has been going on? Well Obama has been flip flopping like a Kerryfish out of water. First he will debate, now he won't. First he won't go to Iraq, then he went with the entire MSM in tow. First he found comments made by Bernie Mac offensive, then he didn't but then he sent a messenger around to say that he really did. It must have been the Angel of Death because Bernie died shortly after the Obamassiah expressed his disapproval.  I can't help but wonder if Barack also disapproved of Issac Hayes or maybe his messenger just made a pit stop in Memphis on the way back. Xenu rest his soul.

McCain has been gaining in the polls, or more precisely, Obama is slipping. I don't think John is doing much of anything and is improving. That scary fact is very revealing about this up coming election. Ennui abounds and no one seems concerned about little things like "issues". 

Meanwhile the Democrat led congress has reached it's lowest approval rating in history. 9%. Wow. I know a number of Americans, myself included, had to cancel vacation plans this year due to runaway gas prices and skyrocketing costs. I guess while they were staying around the house they took a good hard look at the job Pelosi and company's been doing and were not impressed. 

I think the choices for veep will be important. Hillary has said she did not want to be nominated but who really believes that? Of course her chances were slim and none. Barack has more sense than that. Standing between Hillary and the Presidency, he might as well have just painted a big bullseye on his back and just waited for her to plow through him to get to the oval office.  And you thought hunting with Dick Cheny was dangerous. 

Well the Olympics arrived and the U.S. leads in total medals by a slim margin over China. Though China has almost twice as many gold medals as the U.S.  I am glad for Mike Phelps though! Way to represent Mike! And I loved the interview with Mark Spitz. What a gracious athlete. Of course the old joke has to be put to rest now. You know the one, "How do you fill an Olympic Pool? Mark Spitz."  I guess some things you need to let go of.

I am looking forward to the conventions and I am sure I will have things to say about both of them.  So come back and hopefully I can keep the non-blogging blues at bay.

In Memoriam

I am having some issues which has forced me into a hiatus from blogging. But I didn't want to let to much time get by without saying anything about the loss of Bernie Mac. His, peers all tell of what a great friend and family man he was. And it was no exaggeration that he was a huge comic talent. He will be missed. My prayers go out to his family.
