Ya, the 5% Obama may need to win. Geez, this Nader guy. Really. Should of stayed out this cycle.

Ralph's my boy. I have voted for him in every election since 1996. It helps living in a safe state - Clinton, Kerry and Gore were shoe in's up here, so I had the leeway to give my vote to the 3rd party. I wish they would let him debate, give him more coverage, and take him a bit more seriously. He has a lot to say.

We all know McCain wil benefit from race-based voting more than Obama will.

We also know Powell is an intelligent, honorable, decent man.

We also know Limpbaugh is a drug abusing hysterical lying right wing douchebag with a history of racism.

^ It was on FOX News. Williams certainly didn't say "it's all about race"--he agreed that, from his POV, race was obviously an important factor in this endorsement because Powell is "the original crossover star," a senior black figure in US politics who at the same time "hasn't always had a very close relationship with the black community in terms of his legacy," and here we see him reaching out--and left--to the new most visible African-American politician, while at the same time underlining how he (Powell) feels the GOP has moved too far to the right. (Williams made almost the same remarks on NPR as well, in more detail and without the reporter leading him.) Rush's tack was, needless to say, quite different.

I didn't see this part and now that I have, I'm appalled that he would say that Rush Limbaugh was "right" on anything, period.
I disagree with RL on so many levels. I respect Colin Powell and think Williams is profoundly wrong with this description of him..

I vote in a safe sate too, and I know my parents voted Nader for the same reason in 2000 and 2004. But I think all three of us will be voting Obama this time, not because he could lose MA, but because it will make us incredibly proud and be incredibly satisfying to vote for Obama. Kerry few liked, not even in MA.

wink This one's for U2democrat

Pfriend or Pfoe? | The Daily Show | Comedy Central

So, U2democrat, are you part of real or fake Virginia?

Is that like northern Florida is really Georgia, but we just don't like to publicize it?

See, I'm from west central Florida, which is the real Florida. As opposed to south Florida, which is the fake Florida (or "Cuba") and northern Florida, which is actually Georgia, as I said before. Central Florida is Disney World, so it's a different country all together. And east central Florida is known as the space coast, so you know . . . . aliens. The Florida Keys . . . well, we just pretend they don't exist and only pay attention to them when it's hurricane season or we want to vacation there.

I think everyone in FYM should examine if they are in the real or fake part of their state (or province, for our Canadian posters ).

And, I am from the real part of Massachusetts, so I'm not a real American, because Massachusetts is full of gay fake Americans.
