Sarah Palin needs a theme song for her VP campaign. May I suggest “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”? This would convey a double (at least) meaning. She has managed a myriad of troubles as mayor of a town of environmental exploitation, advocating the “Bridge to Know Where?” Did she care?

Ms. Palin has stated that “ the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom is lipstick.”

I submit that the difference between Bush and McCain, and Palin as well, is mostly lipstick and bullshit.

Senator Ted Stevens, AK (R) , is akin to Senator Robert Byrd, W. Va (D)- Both are ancient, yet provided precious earmarks for Federal funds to their respective states, or, in other words, robbed the U.S. Treasury.

Governor Palin supported the “Bridge to Nowhere” until political expediency indicated otherwise, at which point she threw the indicted Sen. Stevens “in front of the bus”. The big Republican tent retains the stench of Bush the Second, as well as the aforementioned and their ilk gathered within. Byrd is a Democrat sucking at the teat of federal largesse legally, more or less, while stenching the Democratic tent like a geriatric fart following a chili fest.

If you want true change- If you want our nation to lead the world by example, rather than fail by successive embarrassments, vote Obama/ Biden. If you prefer liars professing to share your xenophobic beliefs- stay home on Election Day. You are at least as dangerous as Osama. One letter makes a huge difference, as all true believers are truly dangerous.

Obama stands for true positive change. Osama is the bad guy. There is, I repeat, an enormous difference.

One Nation, under God- Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL, I pledge to my flag, and to the country for which it stands.

One nation, not pressured by her energy suppliers, not holding the hand of an impotent potentate. One nation, no longer under Bush, thank God.

Lena's smile
Thanks for reading and commenting. I look forward to more agreement and disagreement, as writers and peers.

I myself believe this could have been much better, but I couldn't resist the title.

I entirely agree with Penelope's comment here.In most Westminster-style 'democracies' including mine, elections do not take up so much of peoples' time nor do they consume such vast sums of money ( and other vital resources).

But then ,as the 'greatest people on earth' Americans are hardly likely to deny themselves ( and the rest of the world ) the 'greatest show on earth'.

Carful consideration
I am a middle of the road kind of person, probably more conservative than most but definitely open minded -- so that is how I must consider Obama, with a very open mind. Here are 5 reasons:

1. He is a very articulate speaker with a script, but when he speaks "from the heart" he stutters and searches for "prefect" words, utters many cliches, and often says really bone-headed things that don't make sense. When he has a script he delivers flawlessly, just what the audience wants to hear.

2. His answer during the Saddleback interview about when life begins (It is above his pay grade). It was a direct simple question that he dodged completely. Obama, just answer the damn question.

3. He chose Biden when just four months ago Biden was slamming Obama as an inexperienced wannabe politician who needs on the job training.

4. Hillary Clinton beat Obama in votes by a large margin, but the DNC pronounced Obama the Dem's choice by not counting delegate votes in 3 states that would have put Hillary over the top. I have to ask "Why is the DNC so damned bent on putting Obama in the Whitehouse?"

5. Obama touts socialist philosophy that will literally ruin this country by redistributing all its wealth, not to people who need it, but to outside interests.

Vote for Obama/Biden, it is one choice of two. But I would recommend we all stop listening to the "McCain will just be another Bush". Bush isn't running, and I don't think McCain could be as inept as Bush -- Bush couldn't even repeat his own misguided mess.

Same thing, don't listen to words that Obama can bring back the Clinton years -- won't ever happen. Each candidate must put their own ideas out there, and so far neither of them has.

Palin Dfference
The diffenences between a hockey mom and a pitbull are several:

A pitbull won't see lipstick as camouflage.

Pitbulls can be reliable companions.

A pitbull will not whack you with her son's hockey stick.

I prefer the pig. You can put lipstick on a pig, but if that's your date, your best hope is to make it squeal.

A hockey mom receives no earmarks. Pigs routinely do.
