HiLARious! (and he's going to balance the budget by the end of his term in office? The Repukicans have done a great job with that so far.)

I can't see videos. But is this questioning his physical wellness??? Because just this morning, we were saying how bad he looked last night — like an old man, hunched over, whispering in a scarey voice, mispronouncing — he seemed frustrated and confused and grabbing at shit that he didn't even know quite what he was grabbing for. And his tone — pointing at Obama and snarling " that one…" He looks used up and washed out. And Pallin seems like she's getting ballsier and kind of puffed up with imaginary greatness. I saw some of her supporters gleefully imagining "what if McCain had a heartattack…heh-heh…" and it's almost like Pallin's imagining the same thing…

Oh geez… Sarah Palin looked concerned, you know, like a daughter who doesn't want her daddy to embarrass himself.

Oh, man. Oh, man. *shivers*Flashback?I wonder now about PTSD…….gah.

Prisoners, countrymen. Same thing. He looked embalmed last night and not in a good way. Poor guy ought to just relax and go home.

he's running along his patter and casually addresses us all as his "fellow prisoners."As Arbed remarks, no one even blinks….

Actually I was just commenting on this somewhere else.It's as if the whole town hall format is somehow a grand karmic return.McCain insisted on it, cause he thinks he does well at it, you know, alone on the stage in front of his well-screened, friendly audiences.But I don't think he thought at all about how having the two of them changes the dynamic.So the result is there he was looking frail and small and old, side by side with his tall, vibrant, healthy opponent.Much more striking when you see the two of them walking about than if he was perched up safely behind a podium.Wasn't there anyone in his campaign who could tell him what a bad idea this was?

Only Palin seemed to be listening well enough to notice and she covered it well, just shifted a little. Seriously was anyone listening to him? No one seemed to notice but her. He didn't even notice himself. eeek.

What the hell kind of Freudian slip was that? Though..the longer this campaign goes on the more I feel like a prisoner.

That is so, so scary !!

Yeah, she's running little Hate Hours on the campaign trail.Question is, whether or not the violent looneys will crawl back under the rocks without new infusions of hate training.She scares me.

The worshipping crowds scare me too. Yuck. Ever seen "Jesus Camp"? Her crowds are like those kids all grown up.

She scares me too….really scares me. I do not understand how she could allow someone to shout such hateful speech as "kill him" and not address that, especially when there are real nuts out there that believe it's their God-given right and duty to do such a thing. I don't remember if it was the Huff Post article or another article that said a John McCain "I-am-John-McCain-and-I-approve- this-message" ad has a rally participant calling Obama a terrorist in the background. It just shows how weak and out of touch he is to resort to such tactics instead of just sticking to the issues.

whoooa…. oh my oh my…. one wonders if he used to give these sorts of speeches while at the Hanoi Hilton?

oh my god. Someone shouted "kill him!" and it wasn't addressed??? What the hell is that.On Jon Stewart last night he was showing clips of the crowd listening to Pallin's crap and they're all ranting and booing and being all loud & trashy and Stewart showed a clip of an old movie where the villagers all had torches and were going off in a mob to kill Frankenstein — and it looked exactly like the same mentality — a mindless angry mob with torches. And Pallin is gleeful about the crowds' reactions. And this — saying McCain said "fellow prisoners" — what the hell. Did the media catch it?

Anderson Cooper and his guest discussed the "Kill him" comment on Anderson Cooper 360 last night. Everyone agreed that it was unacceptable that Palin did not immediately address this language. I sincerely hope the secret service had a discussion with whoever said it.

He absolutely DID pale by comparison wide by side with Obama. And afterwards too — McCain and his freaky wife shook a very few hands with the crowd and then completely split — Obama and his wife stayed on the floor shaking hands, meeting people, answering questions and even posing with people so their friends could take pictures with their camera phones. It was really obvious that Obama was relating to the crowd — McCain didn't feel that was necessary evidently.Plus – I saw a clip of McCain and his wife backstage somewhere else and they were both busy rubbing hand sanitizer into their hands, and they said they always did that when they had been in public – the newsperson said "Would you say that you two are germophobes?" And they kind of snickered and said "well I don't know if I'd say that" but it was like they were trying to get Common Folk Cooties off of them.

The people who are so fanatically zealous and say shit like that really scare me too. (plus the people who LET THEM get away with it.)
Posted by YGRS on October 9, 2008 at 7:37 am
I really wish the media would jump all over shit like that — and make it so glaringly obvious to everyone that he's soooo not fit to be our Pres. "fellow prisoners." oh my god.
