Dear McCain-Palin Supporters:

During the past few weeks, I’ve seen the most pathetic joke of a Presidential campaign in the history of the United States. Following that, I cannot possibly try to engage in another serious discussion with anyone who would still support the sideshow of McCain & Palin.

Many have charged —and I agree— that John McCain picked Sarah Palin because she is a woman. Others maintain that he chose her because he believes she is qualified and would be ready to take over the Presidency from day one. In either case, McCain’s choice is an insult to the intelligence of American voters and a piss-poor reflection on his own judgment.

After listening to Palin’s incoherent word salad, inability to name a single Supreme Court decision or even one news source that she reads regularly, her obvious ignorance of what the “Bush Doctrine” is, much less what it entails, her claim that being able to see Russia from Alaska gives her foreign policy experience, her statement that the bailout bill was about health care, and so on, if you still maintain that she is more prepared for the Presidency than Barack Obama, you are not firing on all cylinders.

I do not believe you can be reasoned with, and I will not waste any further time attempting to do so.

I’ve written this post so that I only have to say it once: I can no longer take any of you seriously, and will not attempt to do so for the remainder of this election. Hopefully, you’ll all regain your faculties in the days and weeks following Election Day, whatever the result.

Henceforth, I will simply link to this post any time a McCain supporter attempts to engage me using the same regurgitated rhetoric I’ve been hearing from the McCain campaign.

Thank you, and have a nice day.

Rigged!

I’ve been a having a discussion with a blogger named Rigg, who said regarding Bristol Palin’s pregnancy, that “in the Democrats’ view all children are game if it will take down their opponent”. This extraordinary statement comes at the very end of the post. I commented only to point out that Obama himself stated that Palin’s family — especially her children — are off limits and that he would fire anyone from his campaign who takes part in the rumor mongering.

Rigg objected to Obama’s public statement on the grounds that he made it after the attacks had already started. I then asked when he thought would have been appropriate, and pointed out the problems with making such a statement prior to the onset of the attacks. After two days of twisting like a worm on a hook, Rigg has not yet answered that simple question.

I honestly cannot understand the reasoning behind Rigg’s position. Rather than simply acknowledging that Obama has taken an honorable stance on the Bristol Palin issue, he is absolutely determined to turn even that — a point on which people from both sides can actually agree — into a point of contention. It’s mind-boggling.

Now, I wasn’t planning to blog about this; it’s really a minor point and more of an annoyance than anything else. But then I saw this:
