This Will Funny In A Week

In a week, after Obama wins, I will be happy that someone like Sarah Palin was in the race. McCain often comes off as being a moderate, he does everything to disassociate himself from Bush. But having a running mate like Palin really helps us all remember the fucked up mentality that has dominated public discourse in this country for the last 8 years.

McCain and Palin today, demanded that the LA Times release a video in which Obama is shown meeting a PLO persona. The PLO is the legitimate representative of the Palestinian people. For some reason being sympathetic to Palestinians here in the U.S. is considered hateful or “anti-Semitic”.

As an Israeli and Jewish American I resent McCain’s manipulations, so do many of my friends. Hopfully next week, when McCain loses, he will look back and understand this mistake.

    after Obama wins

    I’m starting to become a bit worried. What if he DOESN’T win? I don’t trust the people who voted for Bush TWICE.

    This kind of mirrors my thoughts. I’d thought of McCain as the best of the bunch from his party, and even compared to some of the Democrats running this year, I think he held up fairly well (I’m a dead center centrist). Until Palin. I will not vote for somebody like that. Oh well. I suppose she’s good for one thing – removing any second thoughts I had about voting Obama. Way to lose the center!

    It’s not like those people have gone away. The same 25% of Americans who twice elected Bush are alive and well. They’ll remain your countrymen and neighbors for decades to come. Live with it. Or head to Canada. Or whatever. But don’t let yourself believe that an Obama victory can erase a quarter of the country.
