A number of Republican senators have expressed frank fear that McCain is simply too impulsive to be Commander in Chief. They have seen him screaming obscenities at the top of his lungs at people, including Republicans, in the halls of Congress. Charles E. Grassley, John Cornyn, Rick Renzi, Richard Shelby, Thad Cochran, Pete Domenici, Tom Freestone, Evan Meacham, Robert Wexler, Barbara Barrett, Sandra Dowling, John Hinz, are all Republicans who have been abused by McCain, and a number of them have expressed deep concern about how McCain would comport himself in a crisis were he President. One went so far as to say that the prospect 'sent a chill down my spine.' The recent debacle in Georgia (the nation, not the state,) gives us an unnerving example of how impulsiveness of a president can cause disaster.

Choosing Palin was another example of political opportunism and shooting from the hip. If you vote for McCain, be prepared for four years of more impulsive, poorly considered decisions. In the final analysis, McCain is a typical Republican and Obama is a typical Democrat. McCain is elderly, and has had several bouts of cancer. A vote for McCain gives us a reasonable likelihood to be a vote for President Palin-and she is definitely not of Presidential caliber. She is also very far to the right of typical moderate Republican views-she is a member of the "black helicopter" fearing, the UN is out to get us, end the separation of church and state, all Christians who aren't fundamentalist protestants aren't real Christians, witches and demons are among us crowd.

And then there's the economy:

Apparently, McCain wants to eliminate the progressive income tax, despite the fact that some people are failing to make ends meet working two jobs, while others can afford private jets and 200 foot yachts. After all, some poor guy working for $7.50 an hour can just as easily afford a 20% tax as somebody who buys and sells baseball teams, right? Thanks, John - We're drowning and you want to throw us an anchor. I'd say that this, and not remembering just how many houses you own, makes it pretty clear where you stand economically-for and with the selfish, greedy Republican Wall Street fat cats who are fleecing us for a TRILLION DOLLARS!

Now Mr. McCain wants to institute a spending lid for the government at the onset of a deep economic depression? Flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop, there you go again, Mr. McCain. What happened to your $300,000,000 bailout for underwater mortgages? Oh, I see, that's so last week. Well, Mr. McCain, that's exactly what President Hoover did when the Great Depression started. Didn't work out so well, huh?

Every idea McCain has is simply more of George Bush's policies. Have Bush's policies worked well for America, and for you?

Dear Leader Obama will not tolerate right wing radio bigots! He will impose the fairness doctrine across the land!

Soon Dear Leader will be in the Whitehouse! Dear Leader spoke on ALL channels on tv last night! Dear Leader is loved by all. Dear Leader, we salute you!

Dear Leader offers hope and salvation! Dear Leader will take care of us!
