Obama is a bum but I am glad that the irrelevant ego-manaical MCCain did not get elected.What a pompous old goof.

If a choice between Obama and McCain is democracy then I'll take monarchy. At least then we can do without all of the hypocrisy and posturing. All we have now is an idiocracy.

This is getting ridiculous. Now it seems every day of every month is Black history month. There are literally hundreds of ethnic groups that make up America, take a day off. I am not going to celebrate Black heritage every day of the week. Do Black people celebrate my heritage ONE day a YEAR? No.

I guess this makes up for McCain casting a senate vote against creating the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday? Not to mention the fact that McCain later defended Arizona Republican Governor Evan Mecham's decision to rescind the state holiday to honor of King created by his Democratic predecessor.

I guess all is forgiven and forgotten.

Yet another anti-American idiot we need to deport.

C'mon, he's got a soft spot for the guy because they used to be sparring partners.
