I have had this little ticker in my side bar for what seems an eternity now:
When I put it up, it was in the somewhere in the 600s. I felt like this day would never come, but I can officially retire it from my sidebar! All I can say is wow! Obama’s speech was inspiring, and well put! I do hope that he can get the support behind him from this country needed for him to make the actual changes he proposes!
I wish you luck President Obama as you start, what will probably be, the most difficult challenge you will ever face! I feel that you have the drive to do what you promise, please don’t let the nay-sayers drag you down and make you lose focus. This country needs you more now than ever to set a course for recovery to correct the bumblings of the last 8 years.
I look forward to the ideas that you have for us, and hope that your 8 years in office can turn this country around!
Thanks to Howard, for pointing me to this video of Keith Olbermann. He speaks passionately about his disgust at California’s passing of Prop 8 to add Hate to the California constitution.
While Dan and I are content to remain unmarried, it really is sad that in this day and age, we are still denied this right! Keith speaks great volumes of reason, and I urge you to share his sentiment with as many people as you can.
Now that I have seen a minority elected into the highest office of this country, I would like to hope that I will see gay rights finally be realized in my lifetime! I still can’t put into words how amazed and happy I am at last Tuesday night’s election results for President! Now if we can get the country to stop taking steps backwards on other social issues!
Here is a calculator to help you figure out how much you will save in taxes based on Obama and McCain’s different ideas of tax changes.
Here is a scary parallel of McCain and Bush’s acceptance speeches 8 years apart. McCain says he is a Maverick, and different that Bush. When you see these two speeches side by side, you can’t help but realize that McCain is truly McSame. This clip has other great problems with the McSame campain.
Man, I wish the pair were really running for president, I would be on their bandwagon in an instant! Here is a great video from the Daily Show. I still laugh every time I hear Rove’s total flip flop! I just hope that my runner up of the Obama/Biden ticket can be victorious. McPalin scares me to no end!
Yup, Paris is burning, and I think McCain might need some ointment at this point. I never thought I would be able to respect Ms. Hilton, but she has proved me wrong with her response to McCain using her in his latest commercial! I am sure she didn’t write it, but still this is one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time!

Dan let me know about this fantastic blog: Things Younger Than McCain. I found this great video that shows just how much like Bush this man is. It also shows how much his stance has changed with the upcoming election. Make sure to pass this video on!
It’s Psychological… That’s what McCain is currently saying our problem is here in the states… He feels that all of the economic problems are just in our head. Please visit Moveon.org to find out more info or to make a donation to help air this commercial.
Kevin James… Shut your piehole!
