Yes We Can Defeat McBush!

Who is Sarah Palin? Here's some basic background:
* She was elected Alaska's governor a little over a year and a half ago. Her previous office was mayor of Wasilla, a small town outside Anchorage. She has no foreign policy experience.
* Palin is strongly anti-choice, opposing abortion even in the case of rape or incest.
* She supported right-wing extremist Pat Buchanan for president in 2000.
* Palin thinks creationism should be taught in public schools.
* She's doesn't think humans are the cause of climate change.
* She's solidly in line with John McCain's 'Big Oil first' energy policy. She's pushed hard for more oil drilling and says renewables won't be ready for years. She also sued the Bush administration for listing polar bears as an endangered species--she was worried it would interfere with more oil drilling in Alaska.
* How closely did John McCain vet this choice? He met Sarah Palin once at a meeting. They spoke a second time, last Sunday, when he called her about being vice-president. Then he offered her the position.

Not only that, but according to Politico, "Palin Electrifies Conservative Base".

Normally, I would find the revelation that we have yet another fundie presidential candidate a little distressing--possibly even disheartening. But after watching the convention and realizing how deep the Democratic bench is. And once again seeing how prepared Obama was to take on whatever lay before him. Bizarrely, I'm unbelievably psyched to have a substantive clone of George W Bush on the McCain ticket. I'm "electrified". I think back to when Obama gave a speech in my city and said something about the fact that George W Bush would not be running for office this year, and we all cheered uproariously. But now that Bush is, in effect, on the ticket, I'm more than ready to take him on. My enthusiasm toward Obama has wavered in the past and may sometime again. But with another Bush staring me in the face, my resolve to defeat John McCain is more steadfast than ever.

To put it simply, I can't wait to hand McBush and all of his Islamo Evangelico-Fascist nutjob supporters their collective asses. Bring it on! Yes, we can!

(FYI-GOTVing today...was planning on going for only a couple of hours. But now, I might just do this every hour until the election.)

Yes, I agree McShame and his new "baby", are no match for Obama/Biden. I am excited as well, I mean did he just hand over the Presidency?

He didn't just hand it over; he's taunting us into taking it from him. And take it we will. I know this election will not be easy. But I know that, if we all work together, we will win.

Palin is a joke as far as her VP candidacy goes, and McCain is now a joke as well.

Both have demonstrated discernible gaps in judgment.

I agree that the dems bench is deep this year. Let's get 'em!
