Watching John McCain debate last night

reminded me of a little wooden-armed tin man banging a drum and happily marching off of a table. How repugnant he looks.

That man is about as genuine as a carnival barker at a penny arcade in a Ringling Bros.* circus tour.

* my apologies to Ringling Bros.

I could take him.

I bet McCain fights dirty, like the nasty little bitch he is.  But he's old, and I gottalotta rage in me.

I should've known I'd just find more bile...

...instead of real information.

If you want real information,

Obama was laughing at him on several occasions during the debate

Personally McCain creeps me out. Maybe it's his beady little eyes

It's the Botox injections.

It's leaked down to his shoulders and arms.

Watching McCain really saddens me..

Drew_Atreides's picture

Cause i know he's better then this.  I actually believe he'd be a pretty good president for you guys, but sadly even Jesus himself would've lost if he had won the Republican nomination..

 

My question is why the fuck did it take you people 8 YEARS to figure out that Bush was terrible...? 

 

The cockpit.. what is it?

John McCain isn't "better than this".

What you're seeing is what you'd get. Just ask anyone in Arizona with a modicum of common sense who has experienced the maverick's sense of honor and compassion.

Obama stomps Grampy McSame in last debate

Check out these poll results:

Despite John McCain's strident performance in the final US presidential debate, snap polls awarded the contest decisively to Barack Obama, while a bookmaker said it would pay out on bets on the Democratic candidate.

Mr Obama was judged to have "done the best job" in the debate by 58 per cent of independent voters in a CNN poll, with 31 per cent plumping for Mr McCain. Mr Obama also did better among Republican voters than Mr McCain did among Democrats. A total of 18 per cent of Republican voters said Mr Obama did best, while only five per cent of Democrats preferred Mr McCain.

The Democratic candidate also gained general approval among the independent voters, while the Republican senator lost ground in this respect. While Mr Obama's favorable/unfavorable rating went from 63/35 before the debate to 66/33 afterwards, Mr McCain's sank from 51/45 to 49/49.

Voters think Grampy McSame is a hot head

Dan_in_Cincinnati's picture

Following debates between the two rivals in which the Arizona senator has appeared angry at times, 46 percent consider him hot-tempered, more than triple the 13 percent who say so about Obama.

"He'd be a little nerve-racking to have in the White House, jumping real fast," Darlene Finley, 48, an Obama-leaning independent from Ossineke, Mich., said of McCain. "When you're talking about war, that's something you don't want to do, jumping real fast."

Since September, McCain has lost ground on nearly every quality tested in the poll, including lower scores for being likable, decisive, honest, competent, intelligent and inspiring.

He's also lost ground for understanding ordinary peoples' problems, caring about "people like you" and improving America's international standing. Growing numbers even see him as supporting big business over the public interest and being influenced by lobbyists — despite repeated vows to do exactly the opposite.

Obama's ratings have stayed level since last month for most qualities tested, though he has shown some improvement in whether he's considered experienced and decisive.

Still there are people who won't vote for Obama...

Simply because he is black. It's a sad set of affairs when that's the only way they are judging a candidate. McCain lost some of the women voters when he was talking about abortion and put finger quote marks up when he said "a women's health". I'll never understand why right to lifers are so against preventing pregnacy. I wonder, is it because they think sex is only for procreation?

Sex IS only for procreation.

RidingFool's picture

And I like to pro-create as often as I can.

Pro-creation?

Mal_Content's picture

I thought it was for re-creation.  Crap!  I've been doing it wrong all this time!

Obama is one cool dude

Nothing seems to rattle him. I feel in a crisis Obama would remain calm.

McCain is such a hot head, I wouldn't trust his judgement in a crisis

FOXWORTH, MS—Despite obeying the posted speed limit and having all inspection, registration, and insurance documentation up to date, Sen. Barack Obama's campaign bus was stopped for nearly four hours.

There is a part of the Bible that tells you to have sex with...

...your wife.  It says to dishonour not yourselves excep for fasting and prayer, but to then come together afterwards lest satan tempt you.  You gotta keep it up.

As an elderly gentleman, I feel that I must say

that I don't have a problem keeping it up.

You mean your pants?

Major Republican Newspaper rejects Grampy McSame

Dan_in_Cincinnati's picture

Democrat Barack Obama on Friday won endorsements from two unlikely newspapers - the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times.

While the Tribune is the largest daily in Obama's hometown, the publication hasn't backed a Democrat in its 161-year history. And the Times hasn't endorsed a presidential candidate since 1972, when it backed President Richard M. Nixon's re-election.

In an editorial posted on its Web site, the Tribune said the country needs a president who can lead it through a "perilous time" and restore "a common sense of national purpose." Obama is the best candidate to do that, the editorial board said.

The Times, the country's fourth-largest newspaper, said McCain's campaign had left the candidate "nearly unrecognizable." His selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for running mate was "irresponsible," it said.

"Palin is the most unqualified vice presidential nominee of a major party in living memory," the Times said. "The decision calls into question just what kind of thinking - if that's the appropriate word - would drive the White House in a McCain presidency."

The Times said the U.S. needs a president who displays grace under pressure, is not prone to volatile gestures and understands the legal foundations of American freedom.

"Obama is educated and eloquent, sober and exciting, steady and mature. He represents the nation as it is, and as it aspires to be," the Times said.

There's nothing that rag won't do to attract subscribers.

The Times is merely kissing ass for its monumental mistake in 1972 and hoping new subscribers won't notice.

Only 50% comfortable with 72 year old Prez

Dan_in_Cincinnati's picture

From the conservative Christian Science Monitor: As Election Day approaches, Senator Obama’s lead over Republican rival Sen. John McCain is widening into double digits. Recent polls also show 91 percent of Americans say they are comfortable with the idea of having an African-American president. That contrasts with only 50 percent who say they’re comfortable with having a 72-year-old become president, as Senator McCain would be were he to win. http://features.csmonitor.com/politics/2008/10/22/surging-obama-campaign-suggests-us-racism-on-the-wane/ {;-) Dan in Miami

 

Sadly,

if McCain loses, he can blame it on his age. 

Here's a major part of his problem:
