Today's flailing about of the McCain campaign has lead me to this. I wasn't gonna go on an angry rant over politics this year. I have made it clear that I am a Democrat, and I am supporting Obama whole-heartedly, but this ridiculousness is really just too much.

Have I shown my hand too early? Too bad. I am sick and tired of the lies and shenanigans going on with the McCain/Palin camp. Today, we heard McCain suddenly claim that things were so bad, so dire, that he, and only he, could go to Washington and save us all! In that shocking moment, he also told us he was suspending his campaign, and asked that Friday's debate be postponed. Because he can't do more than one thing at a time? Or is it because today's polls show him sinking? And now.... NOW, the McCain camp is saying that they want to delay the VP debate as well. I am shocked! (end sarcasm).

I would like to just inject a personal feeling here (I know, why start now?). In all this craziness with Wall Street, McCain is coming off as desperate, while the calm and thoughtful remarks from Obama seem much more Presidential. Obama hasn't been running amok changing, day to day, what he thinks is the next best idea.

And don't even get me started on the continuous lies that Palin has been spewing, over and over on the campaign trail. Selling that plane on e-Bay (lie), saying 'Thanks, but no thanks' on that bridge to nowhere (lie), and her now well known penchant for banning books and her extreme Pro-Life positions that make most of us blanch. Her extreme notions are apparent in how she runs Alaska as well, as this New York Times article spells out nicely.

As things have gone along, we've seen McCain repeat the Palin lies over and over. Is this because he doesn't know any better? Or because he just doesn't care? Either way, it makes him look bad in my eyes.

So that brings me back to today. McCain cancelled a scheduled appearance on the David Letterman show, citing he was needed immediately in DC, but was caught, by Letterman, recording an interview with Katie Couric instead. In fact, McCain isn't going to DC until tomorrow (Thursday), because he is appearing at the Clinton Foundation event here in New York City tonight. Wow, another lie... are we still surprized by this? Here is David Letterman's reaction to McCain's cancellation, hot off the YouTube presses (Letterman is pissed...).

Honestly people, I can't take much more of this. I'd like to quote one of my favorite lines, one that I say to myself regularly these days: Dear Republicans, I am so sick of your shit!

In closing, I will post this picture, which is currently my beloved wallpaper on this very computer. Vote Obama/Biden!!!!!
