Well, luckily the bars and clubs will be open until 5am so this tide tired, crowded, stressed humanity will have a few more hours to drink. I don't foresee a problem with that, nope.

jo jo,

Are you proving the stereotype that your governor helped establish that Alaskans are not that smart?

McCain lost the election by more than 8 million votes. That means more than 8 million MORE voters wanted Barack Obama to be our next President than they wanted a continuation of a Bush presidency, and/or a Vice President who appears to many as not having an elevator that goes to the top floor, not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, or however you want to describe as maybe somewhat intellectually dishonest and/or lacking all the faculties.

Barack Obama will be sworn in as President on January 20. 2009, so get over your racist foolishness.

Just because Obama got 8 million more votes doesn't mean much to me. Our country is made up of very many stupid people and based on your comments, you are truly 1 of them. You are just a brain-washed troll, not able to think for yourself. Get off your bandwagon. I can live with Obama's victory for the next 8 years because I recognize that there are many stupid people voting. The requirements for voting are the same as for getting pregnant - none!

In a bad economy the other party always ousts the incumbent party. Plus we swing back and forth like a pendulum anyway. Obama winning isn't some sort of big unprecedented surprise. Plus he spent FOUR TIMES what McCain did. On top of that McCain has the personality of a mushroom and his choice of Palin was a thinly veiled attempt to grab all the women that were pissed Hillary didn't get the nod.

If the Republicans ran an energetic personality OR if Obama wasn't half black (key) then NFW he'd have one.

That said I'll back him when he's right and be against him when he does something stupid. So far he's impressed me with his cabinet picks, so let's see how it goes from here. I disagree with his marxist leanings but, hell, the republicans seem ready to dump free market principles anyway so that wouldn't have mattered.

Oh and I also think that republicans got what they deserved by losing because they abandoned their conservative principles. By FAR most Americans are conservative and maybe if Obama is Jimmy Carter II this will wake them up and re-energize them and force the Republicans to get back to their core principles

With all the hullabaloo around Obama's senate seat and the crooked IL gov basicially offering to sell it for personal gain, what happens if Obama is connected to the scandal?

Same as happened to Marion Barry when he was caught on tape smoking crack with a prostitute. Nothing.
