I Hope Barack Loses

Reactions to the mud slinging from the McCain camp has gotten out of control. McCain can't even quell the mob mentality of his constituents. At a recent town hall meeting McCain passed his wireless microphone to one woman who said, "I can't trust Obama. I have read about him and he's not he's not uh—he's an Arab. He's not—" before McCain retook the microphone and replied:
"No, ma'am," the Arizona senator assured. "He's a decent family man [and] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that's what this campaign's all about. He's not [an Arab]."
Others yelled "liar," and "terrorist," referring to Obama. The crowd booed McCain each time he tried to cool them down.
His campaign organizers are worried they're going to lose the undecided vote. I think McCain is having doubts about selling his soul to retain his base of xenophobes.
Personnally I think if you've been undecided in this election you don't deserve the vote. It bugs me when people say "if you didn't vote, you don't have the right to bitch." Uninformed voting is destroying us. Democracy is turning into mob rule and not justice for all.
The hate and intolerence of the mob is getting worse every day. They are in no way embarrassed by their actions. These crowds are yelling "kill him, kill him."
Whoever wins this election will be hated in 4 years. They'll inherit an untenible situation and be blamed for it. On top of this if Obama is elected some red neck will kill him.
Could another 4 years of republicans be any worse? Can 4 years of demacrats in this climate do any good?

Awww... gee-wiz David, that's just so over the top dramatic don't you think? What... are you saying to sacrifice the lives of all Americans in order to protect Obama?

Simply put, Barack Obama is the bravest man in our country today. He has the character to risk his life to help his country. I'm sure he has had the conversation with his wife; they know the severe racism that exists and this is his choice.

Check out today's Democracy Now ( for an interview with a former McCain supporter who was also on the forefront of the Religious Right. He's publicly calling out McCain for the direction he's taking with “feeding the most unhinged elements of our society the red meat of hate.”

Our country is drastically changing right now before our eyes and I vote for the better. I vote for "That one!" And will again in 2012!

Oh, and as Buffalo'ed Cody, I've seen an overwhelming amount of blogging going in the world of McCain/Palin supporters. Most are hot on the Palin trail. They are tolerant of McCain. And they are rude. Rude, hateful and feeding each other a constant banter of lies and paranoia.

I blame the media and the internet as the cloaked tool that's fueling their hatred.

Hopefully the Obama plans to engage all Americans to help fix our country will help soften their hearts as they stand waiting for their Rapture. Man, the world will be so much better off when they leave!
