NO! The Troops don't love him, keep drinking the Koolaid!
Kids, The Boss, what do they have to worry about?

What's with the Rednecks? I'm not one and I am voting for McCain.

Jon A said...

The Keyboard Kommando known as 'anonymous' strikes again. Oh well, tomorrow is the end of an error. :)

BTW, anonymous, 'drink the kool-aid' is so April.

Poor Anon. Your 8 years of hate, war-mongering, bullying, xenophobia (my that's a BIG word), coded racism, and economic irresponsibility is winding to a close.

You can always move to New Zealand. They'll love you here.

Raina said...

Whoops, I meant "... ARE winding to a close."

I'm just so excited about tomorrow I can barely type straight!

Oh my, I didn't have to look up the definition of XENOPHOBIA, but that word does not describe me.
Economic irresponsibility, not me either, I am a single mom, sent my child to a private school on my paycheck, give my fair share to charity, cook meals for folks who have their babies and children in our local Children's Hospital. What have you all done to help others?? Work for a Wall Street firm, yes my 401 K is down, but have you seen that most of the "higher ups" of these Wall Street firms donate millions to the Democrats. I don't like bailing out these folks anymore than you do and then they get the golden parachute. But I do not want my president to tell me he wants to redistrubute the wealth to folks who don't work when they can, tell me what kind of healthcare I need.
As for a war-monger, nope not me either, but my brother is retired military, he volunteered to go to Iraq twice so that we all could be free.
So much for McCain attacks, you all are horrible!

Talk about drinking the Kool-Aid. And regurgitating tired talking points.

Sweetie, if you don't like what I and my friends have to say here find another lifestyle blog.

And enjoy the 4 - 8 years!

Raina said...

"... the NEXT 4 - 8 years!"

Wingnuts interfere with my ability to type.

Yeh, I figured I wouldn't get an answer to my questions on what have you done to help those in need!!
When the local home for un-wed mothers and homeless asks me to donate 30 fans next year, as I have done for years, when it is so hot, I will tell them to call you! When the local food pantry asks me for donations, they can call you as well!
I guess you all don't like to hear the other side, talk about closed minded, I will not waste my time here any longer with someone who doesn't even live in the USA!

Raina said...

Worked for Legal Aid and didn't take a salary. Volunteered with my dog at a pet therapy program for the elderly and mentally disabled. Headed a volunteer women's leadership program.

And two weeks ago, I picked up the $100 tab of an elderly man in front of me at the grocery store. Didn't know him, just thought he could use some help. I doubt that I'll ever see him again.

I may not live in the US of A, but I can vote in the Presidential election.

Oh, wait a minute. Did you just prove my point about xenophobia?

Toodles, Anon.

Anonymous said...

Good for you , I'm impressed! At least we are on the same page about helping others!
I believe you may have xenophobia, not me!

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

Oh this is almost as good as an episode of West Wing!

The Nerdy Fashionista said...

Troll-ey moley!

I am so nervous that 24 hours from now my friends and I are going to be sitting around my TV in a state of dumbstruck horror...

Also, the shop window in the middle is right around the corner from my office. I thought about snapping a picture but never did, so I'm glad someone else had the same idea...

How did this digress into who is the most magnanimous (another big word)? Its not relevant to the political discussion.

Avoiding insults, I have three words for anonymous. Evidence based politics. Read the details of these candidates policies and stop listening to slogans. Obama and Biden use knowledge, research, recent history and gasp mathematics to inform their policies. McCain/Palin are stuck on weak populist bullshit that doesn't stand up to the evidence.

In Australia the McCain/GOP style of politics would not wash at all. Thats not to say we don't have populist dog-whistle stuff going on. But he has been going around with the 'raise taxes on everyone and the world will end' for weeks. The facts have been stated by Obama and vetted by those who have the information and knowledge to assess such things and have come out in favour of it or at the very least said all the figures hold water tightly.

Yet McCain still waddles around the country bashing ears of the less informed or fearful with this shit, who will all benefit greatly from Obamas policies. That is just plain dishonest and should speak more about his judgement and .

And the health policies, lordy. I think will stop there.

If politicians stop debating the facts of policy then start worrying. Obama/Biden have tried to for the whole campaign. McCain gave up long ago and Palin, well she never had them to begin with. After all she had "only been on the job for 6 weeks" at the VP debate.

I am very excited at the notion of Obama as president. This could really (hopefully) change the world for the better.

Adam

P.S. anonymous you really need to comment as yourself and you will get treated with more respect. Hiding behind pseudonyms or 'anonymous' is never a good start.

P.P.S.
Good on you all for your charity work. You Americans have a much higher rate of charity and community participation than we in Australia, and should be very proud.

Raina said...

Welcome, Adam, and thank you for contributing such thoughtful input.

erin@designcrisis.com said...

Oh damn, I thought I just left the longest comment, ever.

Oh well, I'm too tired to do it again.

Robin said...

Wow, I can't wait until Obama wins tomorrow so we can go back to turning our collective noses up at subway tile and vessel sinks.

Adam said...

Thanks Raina, and sorry to get all heavy in my first comment.

One more little thing. I have followed the campaign and election process for the last 2 years, so I have kept a close eye on it. And apart from the great speeches and thorough policies, the thing that really showed me the quality of Obama is how he dealt with Bill O'Reilly.

Now I am sure I am preaching to the choir in saying that Bill O'Reilly is half-wit scum and to be sure he is very hostile to the Democrats and is in bed with the GOP. But watch those interviews and you will see how, in the face of an O'Reilly bullying, he remains composed thoughtful, insightful and diplomatic. Exactly the kind of man you want out there on the world stage dealing with world leaders, some of which being very hostile.

Here they are if you can bare it.

OK I'm done I promise.

Raina said...

Comment away, Adam. No worries.

I hope to see you back to get your take on such existential dilemmas as "Have subway tiles and vessel sinks jumped the design shark?".

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

Oh GO Adam!! You are my hero!!! (psst AND MY fella!!!!)
