Back to Black

On the front page of the Drudge Report today is a picture of a Sarah Palin doll, rendered to look like Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, complete with gun holstered on her thigh.

Is this really happening? Is this race really neck and neck? Or as rumor has it, the Republicans to lose now? How can this be?

The last eight years have been so destructive, so unsound, so untruthful, so WRONG. And everyone knows this. America is down, not down and out, but down. It needs a facelift, a resurrection...not just domestically, but internationally. I mean this is all so obvious, so why are we as Americans even considering re-electing the party responsible for all this corruption?

It's disheartening and disappointing. As a 27 year old gay male, I am clearly a lot more open-minded than most. Gay rights and other "liberal" social issues aside, I am terrified of a McCain/Palin victory for the simple reason that we will continue to be in the rut that we are already in. I never thought in a million years I would say or think this, but I would actually prefer George W. Bush to stay in office than elect this new haphazard duo. At least W would have to deal with the consequences of his many, many, mistakes.

All issues aside, Obama is a smart guy- he went to Harvard for chrissakes! Obama is healthy, young, passionate. McCain is old, tired, and senile.

Which do you prefer?
