That shit was boring.
It always amazes me how smooth these guys can be when they are given a question, any question, and transition it into whatever they want to talk about. Actually, it's not smooth so much as it is ballsy. I think I have too much respect for authority not to answer someone's question. I have this strange compulsion not to bullshit and give people answers...it has not served me well in life.
Speaking of ballsy, it's also crazy to distort someone's position right in front of them, even after they've stated it very clearly in front of the world a thousand times. We've heard McCain and Obama's talking points ad nauseam now, and yet they have the nerve to try and twist shit around. For example, McCain keeps saying "Barack Obama wants to declare war on Pakistan!" Well, obviously that's not true. Obama keeps saying if Pakistan is harboring terrorists, he reserves the right to go in and get them. Which interestingly enough, is what we are already doing, practically everyday. Yet McCain keeps saying it, but he adds a "my friends" to it so that makes it folksy and not condescending at all.
It's also weird that we have these debates and there's not even any real debating going on. I'd like to see these two ask each other some questions. Maybe then we could get some of the answers we all really want - like Barack answering these Bill Ayers attacks, or John McCain defending the Palin pick. Seriously, why can't Barack ask McCain: do you really think Sarah Palin is ready to be President? How much did you know about her before you did it? Did you even know about the accent?
But actually, I want to end this with something important about Sarah Palin. I want to apologize to her.
I wrote some things in my last post that have turned out to be false. As you may remember, I was heavily critical of the Governor for her "anti-science" views, particularly her claims that humans and dinosaurs coexisted on Earth.
Well, a discovery has recently been made near the southern coast of the northern hemisphere. You've probably seen it in the news, and it's a stunning scientific find. It turns out, Sarah Palin is right. Dinosaurs did roam the Earth with humans. In fact, the two might possibly have had some inter-species relations.
And so, because the photo evidence is so indisputable, Governor Palin, I am deeply sorry.
