In the News

Across the bottom of the screen, CNN called the election campaign season "Ballot Bowl '08." Then they reduced McCain's speech to the press association to bullets like "Hope . . . . is not based in delusion" and "People didn't turn to faith, hunting, through bitterness" while he was talking about the tendency of the media to reduce a politician's sentiments to bullet points and bullets to dodge. Shouldn't we be offended by that?

The media sucks.

I am beyond feeling offended. After that circus act of a debate I am pretty sure that we (voters) are simply viewed as a bunch of brainless yahoos.

The fact that Obama doesn't wear the right lapel pin was a real clincher for me. How about you?

SO glad we got that resolved.
