hey, that's cool. he probably isn't. i mean, i know his performance in Road House is the reason you joined Drama Club. so i'm sure you're right.

i really like your new shoes. did you get them at DSW? yeah, i like that store too. we should totally go shopping there sometime! you want to? afterwards, we can go over to my house. i've got some wine coolers, we can watch "Dirty Dancing" and every time Swayze takes his shirt off, we'll drink! doesn't that sound like fun?

my overbearing, dramatic mother isn't around too much. she has to work two jobs since my shrinking violet of a father walked out on us leaving me craving affirmative, muscular Christian male attention. man, if i had a dad around, i'd totally be on the football team and not in drama club.

how did i get the booze? it was easy. i just did some favors for this guy in the parking lot.

got any Scope?

I thought you said you had NOT seen the deleted scenes from Top Gun?

I was at the Sarasota Obama rally today.



I only wish 4,000 of those people had been bused in - it took me forever to get out of the parking lot

I think the primary vote was more telling than the national election will be. Check out the primary polls of African-Americans regarding Obama vs. Clinton. Two candidates, virtually the same platform.

It's a landslide win for Obama, complete landslide. I wouldn't quite call it racism. But it is human nature.

Very cool kelly!

BluerWhite - I'm wondering if my friend is a racist. She would have voted for Hillary, but between Obama/McCain, she doesn't know who to vote for. Her husband is voting for McCain, since all political stuff he sends me is bullshit (refuted by snopes & other sites) and he calls what I send him bullshit. I asked her (the wife) a few simple questions the other day after refuting her email, asking who she would vote for (she responded HRC before Obama was chosen) and hasn't answered anything else political since

Well, if your friend felt very strongly about Hillary's platform, and is now torn between McCain and Obama.......well, maybe yes! Race could be a factor for her. There may be a few other issues in play, but race could clearly be a factor.

Precisely because Obama's and Hillary's platforms were so similar, I can easily understand people who prefer Democratic policies on taxes, health care and so on finding the historic appeal of an African-American (male?) candidate, or a (white?) woman candidate, to have been a deciding factor in their primary vote. What I don't get is people who were Hillary all the way during the primaries suddenly being McCain all the way when it was clear she wouldn't be the Democratic nominee. I feel the same way about a couple Republicans I know who were Romney fans during the primaries, then switched to Obama when they saw Romney wasn't going to win. It seems to me these people couldn't possibly have ever been considering policies very carefully. It's harder to generalize about true independents, because some of them are folks who lean one party's way on some issues but the other party's way on others, whereas other independents seem to be basically 'go with my gut' voters who can't articulate much about why their preferred candidate's policies seem better to them.

I can't wait for this to be over.

It's been too long and unbearable.

Interesting little chart related to all this "socialism" banter.



Well that's a bit odd...

Facts and statistics are elitist. Please refer to Shepherd Fairey's communism inspired artwork for better evidence of where socialism is really at in your country.
