Barack-O-Lanterns

For those of you who still carve pumpkins or have the porches to put them on...Here are some political pumpkin carvings. Some are more frightening than others.

Philadelphia: the City of Brotherly Love

Notice the Obama/Biden signs in the background when she drops the puck (and the metaphorical ball) in the upper right-hand corner.

The final debate

Obama's lead and momentum prove, all he needs to do is to "stay the course" and not get off message and off topic. Good luck Barack. The White House is yours to take.

NO; SARAH P. really is SCARY

SCARY SARAHSCARY SARAHTHE IDEA THAT SARAH PALIN COULD BE ONE 72 YEAR OLDS HEART BEAT AWAY FROM THE PRESIDENCY IS SCARY!!!!!!!!!

HER RECORD:

1) FAILED OUT OF TWO COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND THREE STATE COLLEGES AROUND THE TIME WHEN BARACK WAS PRESIDENT OF HARVARD'S PRESTIGIOUS LAW REVIEW

2) INVOLVED IN AN ETHICS SCANDAL WHERE SHE FIRED A STATE TROOPER FOR DIVORCING HER SISTER

3) INVOLVED IN AN EXTREMIST PARTY THAT SUPPORTS ALASKA CECEDING FROM THE UNITED STATES!

4) LIED ABOUT ALASKA PROVIDING 20% OF AMERICA'S DOMESTIC SUPPLY OF ENERGY WHEN THEY ONLY SUPPLY 3.5%

5) SHE WAS THE DIRECTOR OF SENATOR TED STEVENSON'S 527 GROUP WHICH WAS INDICTED ON FEDERAL CORRUPTION CHARGES

6) SHE INCREASED SPENDING IN WASSILA BY 33% AND INCREASED TAXES BY 38% WHEN SHE WAS MAYOR

7) HER FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE CONSISTS OF ALASKA'S PROXIMITY TO RUSSIA. (THAT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF SOMEONE SAYING THEY HAVE PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL EXPERIENCE BECAUSE THEY LIVE NEAR A HOSPITAL.......)

8) SHE REQUESTED $200 MILLION IN EARMARKS FOR SPENDING, WHICH IS MORE PER PERSON THAN IN ANY OTHER STATE

9) THE STATE SHUT DOWN PALIN'S BUSINESS FOR NONCOMPLIANCE WITH STATE REGULATIONS BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T FILE ITS BIENNIAL REPORT OR PAY ITS BIENNIAL FEES

Don't Vote: If you do not want your voice or concerns to be heard!

If the celebs can finally come together and voice your opinion then its clearly time for you to stand up and do so yourself.

Get out and vote. Its IMPERATIVE!

Oh did I mention-OBAMA....

Fox News Strikes Again!

I know math is hard for Republicans, but this one is ridiculous.

I like the old man who raised his hand for McCain, and his wife pushed it back down. Then, they both raised their hands for Obama!

I guess Fox News didn't give us Pennsylvanians enough credit!

A Maverick? Or a Leader?

In more than one channel tonight they rhetorically asked if we were heading towards a new depression.

What kind of mentality is this?

The Washington Post's homepage today had a main story on the bailout bill, and two sub-stories, one titled "Obama urges calm" while the other was named "McCain blames Dems." This alone says so much about the state of our Republic, and the environment in which we trudge forward in this election.

"Obama urges calm." What does that tell us, what does that invoke in us? Here we have someone who is able to set aside desperation, who is able to take a step back and make a rational decision that puts the country above all. At times Barack's been accused of being "too cool" yet in these uncertain times I think nothing less is called for, as we try to sanely maneuver the pitfalls of Wall Street.

Dear John McCain

The VP Debate

So basically, the way I see it, Sarah Palin will soon be forced to show the American people how stupid she really is [as if Katie Couric didn't prove it enough]. Joe Biden is about to destroy her verbally and in reality, this debate will allow the Democrats to take an even larger lead in the polls.

So the problem I have is this...what if Sarah Palin gets pulled from the ticket as Kathleen Parker would want the GOP to do.

"Her big interview of the week, with CBS News anchor Katie Couric, was sufficiently cringe-making to inspire conservative columnist Kathleen Parker to conclude sadly that for the good of the ticket and the country, Palin should declare she wants to spend more time with her family and step down. And watching her with Couric, you had to wonder what happened to the spirited, sparkling character who swept onstage in St. Paul and turned the race upside down." Quote from "In Search of Sarah Palin" by Nancy Gibbs read the whole article here: http://news.yahoo.com/s/time/20080927/us_time/insearchofsarahpalin

Sarah Palin is nothing more than a liability, a lie, and an attempt by the GOP to allow a woman to enter the "Ol' Boys Club" but the fact is Palin is never seen outside of staged photo-ops and at McCain's side to boost the drawing power of the GOP.
