My Vote

I'd vote for the first candidate who would resign his/her party if elected. But this comes close:
  • John McCain, on 60 Minutes, said that as president, “I would move the political office out of the White House and into the Republican National Committee. We've got to have a White House that is without politics.”

Glass Houses

Did McCain forget the old saying, people who live in glass houses should not throw stones? See:


More funnies:
  • Late Night Comedians
    Jay Leno: "Give you an idea how bad the American economy is -- Mexico is now calling for a fence along the border."
    Jay Leno: "President Bush has issued a new warning to Iran that it faces new economic sanctions after reports by the UN atomic watchdog committee that Iran is still enriching uranium. President Bush promising new economic sanctions. And believe me, if there's one thing the President is an expert on, it is ruining a country's economy."

With which political candidate do you really agree? Statements on the economy, Iraq, immigration, health care, and other hot topics, choose the statement with which you most agree, and at the end see which candidate you have more in common with.

Was It A Con Job to Prop Up the Stock Market

Remember, the Republi-Cons (more appropriate name for the GOP) wanted to put government money in the stock exchange - McCain supports Bush's idea of channeling at least some Social Security funds into "personal accounts" that individuals would invest on Wall Street. Some of that money would have been entrusted to firms such as Bear Stearns (failed), Lehman Brothers (failed) and Merrill Lynch (sold at a fire sale).

The Bailout is a Bad Idea

Is the bailout a good idea? On what would you spend $1 trillion or more on, bailing out Wall Street or helping Main Street? See:
