Over being over

McCain also was reluctant to use Obama's incendiary pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright as a campaign issue. He had set firm boundaries: no Jeremiah Wright; no attacking Michelle Obama; no attacking Obama for not serving in the military. McCain balked at an ad using images of children that suggested that Obama might not protect them from terrorism; Schmidt vetoed ads suggesting that Obama was soft on crime (no Willie Hortons); and before word even got to McCain, Schmidt and Salter scuttled a "celebrity" ad of Obama dancing with talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres (the sight of a black man dancing with a lesbian was deemed too provocative).
While you try to figure out the black man-lesbian thing, I will announce formally that the period of the Fundy Post being over Obama is now over. Your blogeur spent Election Day #1 lurking in the Public Address epic thread, which continues yet, long after the party ended (although it must be noted that the conversation has been diverted to Battlestar Galactica, a children's sci-fi adventure that is surprisingly popular with people whose views I normally respect). Anyway, this blogeur is now back on-message and has rejoined the hivemind to be wildly enthusiastic about Obama, at least until the Great Disillusionment (date to be confirmed). I know you will be relieved.

The blockquote above comes from the Huffington Post and is a teaser for Newsweek's Special Election Project. It shows that John McCain is a man of integrity, as we all knew. Other news shows that his running mate is an idiot, as we all knew.

Herewith follows what might be the silliest music promo ever made.

Well, yes, I for one am relieved, actually.

It was all a dream and we are back in Kansas. You at least saw the irony.

Hate to tell you that none of these stories has any foundation in fact. Rather it is nonsense gleefully repeated by the MSM. Don't you think that this would have been already found given the huge effort the media went to when they dug into her personal life? I know you want to paint her as ignorant fundy but she's very clever and is more than she has been given credit for. Sh is the face of the new party as it returns to its roots from the aberration of the Bush years.

Does anyone else think Toto's singer looks a LOT like a young Russell Brown??
