I'd love a political campaign someday where the candidates will just tell you why they are the best person for the job and tell people what they will do if elected, and leave all the negative ads and finger pointing out of it.

While I'm at it, I'd also like a pony. And some diamond shoes.

I'd settle for a concert grand Steinway. Oh hell, even a 7 footer would do.

I don't have room for it in my apartment. Maybe I could park it in my parking spot out back.

You know, there's a difference to me between Obama saying "Look, McCain has voted with Bush 90% of the time" which is true, and McCain saying "Obama is not who you think he is; palling around with terrorists, Muslim, etc. blah blah blah...."
which is not true.
I mean, when your guy is down, do you really want him to punch his opponent in the nuts? I don't. I wanted a fair fight, but it hasn't been that for months.

There's a reason why I'm willing to openly support them over my native New Zealand...Scotland aren't going to threaten anyone. But dad's from Scotland and one of their players plays for the club I support. I don't think they're much good at either.

I'd have room for one. I'd just have to kick a housemate out and take over that room.

Well, as far as I know Obama isn't a Muslim, but it was definitely Republicans who brought this sort of stuff up first.

Cute, except this was around on right wing radio way before the Senator from New York decided to roll around in some mud.

I can think of at least three specific times it has been thrown at me in the midst of discussion since I brought it up. What ever circumstances there may have been in your mind, I do not think you are impartial enough to disucss it publicly with me. Fair enough?

I don't believe I ever threw it back at you, but ok.

I do not think I said you did.

Anyways, it certainly has been fun these few months, watching deep pretend to fill the missing void in this forum.

Speaking of deep, I haven't seen him around in a few days.

He is probably worried that McCain may pull an upset, and may have to actually keep pretending for the next four years.
