I'm ready to bet some vCash on this one!

Who gets to be the other half of each tag team?

If it's second bananas on a tag-team you want, the best choices clearly are Robert Gibson and Marty Janetty. Beyond that, I dunno.

McCain should go with Al Sharpton and Obama should get Bill O'reilly. Just to make things interesting.

I'm really hoping McCain looks outside the Bush administration. I really want to give the guy a shot. Similarly, I'm hoping Obama doesn't go with Mrs. Clinton.

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it.

I pretty much plan on not voting and watching Obama win in a landslide. It won't even be close.

r5tp, have you spent any time in the South lately? As long as there are curtains on voting booths, the song remains the same.

The decisive decision (like that?) in this election will be the choice of running mate by the man who quite possibly could be running in his last election. If the Senator from AZ picks something even remotely resembling a Dixiecrat, it is all over.

For some reason, as a Southern White Middle-aged White Man (SWMWM), Bubba and Clyde never have any hesitation in telling me how they really feel, disturbingly presuming I collaborate in their medieval mindsets. This legacy of theirs doesn't get shared with the reporters from CNN...nobody can rightly claim a Southern drawl is an accurate sign of stupidity.

A few observations:

race is going to be a huge factor in this thing. America is, perhaps sadly, not ready to elect a guy with BHO's background and baggage.

no white man and no woman of any race could possibly have been taken seriously as a candidate with BHO's resume.

there are people who claim to like BHO, but who will not be able to bring themselves to vote for him in November.

The Donks need to keep someone vetted and in reserve to step in for BHO at or near the last minute because now that he's the nom, there will be more revelations. It is certain more dirt on BHO and/or his wife will be dished-up. He will be depicted, based on his own activities and/or public statements as Louis Farrakan without the bowtie or funny hat.

Does the VP candidate really matter? Let me rephrase that: Should the VP candidate matter? With the exception of Darth Cheney this time around, does the VP do anything that we need to be concerned with? The only time anybody gets excited about the VP is during the campaign. What impact does the VP really have on anything?

they had him featured pretty prominently on FOX after the speeches....it definitely had the feeling of a potential "media tryout".

Dude, everyone knows that the VP's job is to protect the space-time continuum. It's in the constitution:D

i meant "media tryout" as a VP candidate, if i was unclear....kinda looks like i meant tryout "for the media" but i meant "in the media". there's no doubt, if it were true, the GOP/McCain camp are running focus groups on that Keating footage as we speak.

Not to **** in everyone's cornflakes, but why in God's name would McCain bring someone from Oklahoma to the ticket? This would be no different than Obama getting Barnie Franks, it just doesn't make geographical sense. I think it's probably somebody from the Midwest, or possibly NE.

Cause Keating has some pull with the conservative base. He was in line to get the VP under Bushy, but some $250,000 worth of gifts came up and he was forced to not seek the spot.

The republicans don't need to bring in someone from a big swing state, they need someone that the conservative base can identify with. Plus. Keating still has some pull in the party.

Won't be FK. He could end up as AG or something but he won't be VP. McCain needs somebody younger.

Yeah, that is really, really radical: seeing the church as a means for social change.

Of course, I'm trying to get my place in heaven secured by parking my butt on a pew each Sunday, while holding on to the firm belief that poor people deserve to be poor and taxes are evil and from the Devil and take away from the goodness that God intended me to enjoy.

Oh, wait. I'm Buddhist. I'm not supposed to worry about these things. Never mind.

__________________________________________________ _______________

Roger Keith "Syd" Barrett (6 January 1946 7 July 2006) was an English singer, songwriter, guitarist and artist. He is most remembered as a founding member of British progressive rock band Pink Floyd, providing major musical and stylistic direction in their early work, although he left the group in 1968 amidst speculations of mental illness exacerbated by heavy drug use.

He was active as a rock musician for about seven years, recording two albums with Pink Floyd and two solo albums before going into self-imposed seclusion lasting more than thirty years. His post-rock band life was as an artist and keen gardener, ending with his death in 2006, and a number of biographies have been written about him since the 1980s. During his withdrawal from public life there were numerous speculative, although largely appreciative works about him, most notably his former band Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here.

Yeah, that is really, really radical: seeing the church as a means for social change. Can't have it both ways bro. See, if the church is in the social change bidness, that means it is straying into the affairs of state. Most people maintain the state should remain secular. Some people get all worked up when the church tries to influence legislation and governance by broadly holding the line on basic morality issues and threatening legislators with non-support at the ballotbox or even recall if they pass stuff like same-sex marriage, etc. OTOH, hopefully we can all agree the church can be very effective in sponsoring and funding programs that change the lives of unfortunate people for the better or provides basic services like food, clothing, health care, etc. Frankly, the church is far better at it than government anyway.

Of course, I'm trying to get my place in heaven secured by parking my butt on a pew each Sunday, Not at all. In fact, it really doesn't matter if a person parks their butt on a pew or not. "We are saved by faith and not by works, lest any man should boast." IOW, Solo fide.

while holding on to the firm belief that many poor people deserve to be poor and too many taxes are evil and from the Devil and take away from the goodness that God intended me to enjoy. Nevertheless, we are commanded to "render unto Caesar what is Ceasar's." The trick is, keeping Caesar from being too greedy. Not my rulz. Those are God's rulz.

"We are saved by faith and not by works, lest any man should boast." IOW, Solo fide. So if you really, really have faith, but sit around and do NOTHING you are more likely to get into heaven than a very very good person who does tons of good works but is simply doubting the religious gobbledy gook that has been shoved down his or hear throat all their lives.

Nevertheless, we are commanded to "render unto Caesar what is Ceasar's." The trick is, keeping Caesar from being too greedy. Not my rulz. Those are God's rulz as written down by a collection of men from different countries, speaking different languages on old pieces of paper passed down through centuries where we don't really have almost any of the originals who each had their own agendas, faults and motives . . . IF you believe in Him, that is.Fixed even better. ;)
