That One

I agree with Libby over at the Impolitic. All McCain did when he made this comment was give Obama a new and good campaign slogan. McCain’s attempt at racist insults may backfire.

Obama is That One. That one who has the intelligence, the fortitude, and the vision to reverse the disasterous course set by the Bushies and McCains.

I’m shocked that the press is calling the debate a tie. Obama was professional, confident and articulate and McCain looked like an aging robot. And what’s with his arm? Every time he raised his knarled, pointy finger his arm was bent as if he couldn’t straighten it out. Jeebus, he’s a mess. I don’t want to be fatalistic, but If McCain gets elected I think Palin will be president longer than he will.

    The bad shoulder he brought back from Nam.

    I’m so damned grateful there’s only 27 days left. Followed, of course, by a whole lot of weeping and wailing by one side or the other.

    Between the elections in Canada and the US I’m about ready to lose my freakin’ mind.

    I could agree with you except for the “racist” accusation. “That one” is a normal phrase where I’m from when disparaging the opposition in an argument before a moderator or someone sitting in judgment irrespective of that opposition’s race. It’s rude and dismissive, but not racist.

    Nice to see you back Jonolan. You’re probably right, but the tone of the remark was beyond dismissive, I thought. He said it as if Obama was less than human, not even worthy of being called “him”.

    Nice to see you’re around and kickin’ too, Buf. And I couldn’t agree with you more. These campaigns are too drawn out, too expensive and always sink into a pit of personal attacks instead of addressing issues. I’m sick to death of it as well.

    McCain is too old for this shit, isn’t he?
