"There is great chaos under heaven, and the situation is excellent."

- Chairman Mao

I feel like the last week - and the last few days especially - have been exhausting. Full of alarming and bewildering events, hysterically funny belly laughs, and great opportunity. I'm ready for the election if only to stop the roller coaster.

Slate tried very hard to be The Onion this afternoon, but their fail was pretty lackluster.
Slate predicts McCain's next 10 Hail Mary stunts.
1. Returns to Vietnam and jails himself.
2. Offers the post of "vice vice president" to Warren Buffett.
3. Challenges Obama to suspend campaign so they both can go and personally drill for oil offshore.
4. Learns to use computer.
5. Does bombing run over Taliban-controlled tribal areas of Pakistan.
6. Offers to forgo salary, sell one house.
7. Sex-change operation.
8. Suspends campaign until Nov. 4, offers to start being president right now.
9. Sells Alaska to Russia for $700 billion.
10. Pledges to serve only one term. OK, half a term.
Buffet is no friend of the GOP right now, but you bet your sweet butt McCain would nominate the best closest chump he could find with financial experience to Proposed Treasury Secretary or 'Special Advisor' tomorrow if he could. And while John doesn't have the attack codes, he's got a friend who does. And in an election where his running mate is more popular with his base than he is, he might do a one-term pledge in order to guarantee their turn out.

McCain: "He's so crazy, it just might work!"

Switching gears, I think someone's asked me to ditch it already, but I'm really beginning to tire of the divided post format since it's; 1) mandatory on all posts, 2) almost none of us use it. I'm not mad or disappointed, just being realistic. And it wasn't a big coding fix to implement.

I like the option of using the divided format. Either way - I'm with you man. It is all good.

Dammit. Johnny Mac is just terrifying. I do not want "rash and unpredictable" for the next 4-8 years. It is just terrifying. I want to continue to re-define "Maverick" as "impulsive and scary," "rash and unpredictable," "unstable."

I still cannot understand what it is that the people who are supporting him, see in him. I just am afraid. Really.

McCain/Palin = ulcer makers

It's not that they like McShitter more... it's that they are terrified of a Black Democrat being President.

Not to mention the zany's fucks who think he's a Muslim, believes in Black Liberation Theology, will not make us safe, too inexperienced... basically a bunch of ignorant, bigoted assholes who like to see race cars go round in circles!
