This was really very funny. John McCain is a good sport and was obviously having a good time. And he certainly looked more comfortable than he did in the debates.

My heart all but broke when I learned that Jon Bon Jovi held a fundraiser for Barack Obama. Bon Jovi was my first rockstar crush. I was in 5th grade.
But another rocker that I loved when I was growing up has come out with an endorsement for John McCain, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry.

So, tomorrow (Wednesday) is the last presidential debate. This one is supposed to be about domestic issues.
I think that McCain needs to focus on Obama’s tax plan. There is so much there that the media is giving him a free pass on.

I think that McCain did very well. He started out strong [...]

Last night was a real reality check. Despite all of my excitement over the past week, I am still not a McCain fan. I ended up turning off the computer about 10 or 15 minutes into the speech. (I was watching streaming video.) In between telling my husband to stop saying, [...]

The Purpose Driven Debate
Okay, so it wasn’t technically a debate, but this was America’s first real look at the two major party presidential candidates, side-by-side.
I admit that I haven’t seen it. I watched a few clips pertinent to what I am going to talk about here, but I have not had a chance to [...]

Obama and the Surge
