“I Got News For You John McCain. We All Put Our Country First!”

Posted in Blogroll on August 29th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Barack Obama looked right into the camera and definitively pointed when he said the above words.

I work nights. I haven’t watched anything but the convention the entire week to ensure I got a full sense of how to describe what I saw last night.

It just so happened that as I walked into my place of employment, I ran into my boss. We were the only people in the building, so I turned on the TV in the rec room and we watched Barack’s speech together. Now this was an awkward moment because I’m sure he pegged me as the Black guy Barack supporter, and I was cool with that because it is what it is.

John McCain Goes After Hillary Dems and Picks 1st Term Alaska Govenor, Sarah Palin

Posted in Blogroll, Ernie Johnson on August 29th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

John McCain has just made 1st term Alaska Govenor, Sarah Palin his choice as vice president. She’s 44, with 5 children, is pro life (she will appeal to pro lifers because she has a child with Down’s Syndrome) and against gay marriage.

The self described Hockey Mom also hails from a very important energy state. He has to restart the conversation that he too can be a change agent. I guess after last night’s amazing pageantry, McCain has to do something drastic to make winning the November 4th election a reality. He’s going after the women and independent vote in one fell swoop. This is a huge roll of the dice and it proves the Republicans are scrambling to run an idealogical campaign of sorts.

She’s attractive (Miss Alaska runner up), young and poised to become a power player in conservative politics. Economic and social conservatives are going to love this pick I hear. Simply put, the Republicans might have created a star.

She is facing an ethics investigation in her hometown state for firing a state commissioner who refused to fire a state trooper. The trooper was her sister’s ex husband who allegedly physically abused her so there are supposedly some extenuating circumstances. I’m sure this will be something the Dems will go after even though she hasn’t been found guilty of anything.

“Senator, You’re No Jack Kennedy!”

Thanks to Claude Johnson for posting this in the Barack post. I crack up every time I watch it. Dig the look on Lloyd’s face as Quayle begins to stick his and everyone else’s feet in his mouth….as if to say, “Dumbass.”

R.I.P Senator Bentsen.
