Will they be supplying clothespins at the polls this year? The stench from the ballots will be awful.
It would be nice to see all of the incumbants voted out regardless of party.

Vote for Senator Obama not McDumdum!!

Obama’s tax plan would offer middle class families three times more than McCain’s.»
According to a non-partisan analysis of the presidential candidates’ tax plans, Barack Obama “offers three times the break for middle class families” than proposals of John McCain, who “would steer the bulk of the benefits to the wealthiest families”:

Families making between $37,595 and $66,354 of annual income with Obama would get an average tax cut of $1,042 per family while McCain’s tax cut for this group would be $319, the report states.

The Wonk Room has more on the study by the Tax Policy Center.

UPDATE: In 2001, McCain said of the Bush tax cuts:“I cannot in good conscience support a tax cut in which so many of the benefits go to the most fortunate among us, at the expense of middle-class Americans who most need tax relief.” McCain is now proposing tax cuts that are more regressive than the Bush tax cuts.

A vote for Obama means:
- ending a war in Iraq.

- bringing all of our troops back home.

- no war with Iran.

- having a leader, who believes people from the Main Street are America.

- getting Universal Health Care.

- preventing American jobs going overseas.

- creating more jobs in America.
- living the American Dream again.

- helping the environment.

What has Obama actually ever done to actually warranty a sound belief in his rhetoric?

Does he have a great voting record in the Senate?.....NO. He prefers to vote "present" so as not to have to make a decision.

Does he share the slightly right of center views that most Americans have?...No. He is the most liberal Senator in the Senate. Is in favor of partial-birth abortions, which almost no one is in favor anymore.

Does he have any foreign experience?...No. He went over sea's when he was a youth and feels that is sufficiant.

Did he ever show service to his country in the Military?...No. But he did start his political career off by doing what every good red blooded American would do, and that is to go straight to an unrepentant terrorists house (Good old fun loving William Ayers) and ask his permission and get his "blessing" before he got his campaign rolling.

God Help us all if this inexperienced "empty suit" is elected! But at least we will be "inspired" for a very short time.

You just gave her a compliment,birds are very smart,you are a subspecies,

Smart birds spur scientists to rethink intelligence
(maybe it's time to rethink yours)

The remarkable feats of intelligence of some (not most) species of birds, effortlessly surpassing that of apes, is spurring a reappraisal of the origin of intelligence:
