It was mildly rude and condescending, meant to diminish Obama probably, but I think to read anything racial into it is a bit of a stretch.

I'm not kidding myself about anything.

I'm saying "that one" coming out of McCain's mouth in reference to Obama is a lot different than a teacher saying "that one/that guy/WHATEVER other casual reference instead of a pronoun or a name" to a student.

Bi-curious?

You should know that sodomy is bad for your health.

Ok I will.
I think that McCain is fucking racist.
Maybe he's not, but I think he is.

CNN phone results

Who did best job in debate? Obama - 50%; McCain 30%. I *think* I got those numbers right...

Obama's favourable numbers went up by 4% and his unfavourables dropped, too (missed that number)

McCain's stayed exactly the same, no movement.

Oh, well that! That's not so shocking.

I misunderstood and thought that you meant anyone who might say "that one" would only do so with some racial connotations or something.

Wondering if Mitt had been the nominee, if the race would be different now.

Earnie, you and I both know McCain said "That one with the 40 oz in a paper bag" If that isn't racist, I don't know what is.

cautious optimism ... cautious optimism

It all seems so easy to predict now, but jeez. I don't hold a lot of faith that there aren't still a lot (a lot a lot A LOT) of voters who are thinking " I don't know ... I don't think a democrat can protect us from terrorists."

Call me pessimistic, call me cynical, I just don't think anything is cut and dry.

Ugh, I'm already anxious over election day.
