The euphoria is over. And I must admit I shed a few tears.
McCain has given a wonderfully dignified speech upon losing, but more dramatic still was Bush’s brilliant endorsement of Obama’s premiership and his call to arms, so that the current administration do not drop the ball in the 75 days leading up to his governorship.
I liked that. That took humanity and a certain amount of pride-swallowing.
Good on ya dubbleya.
Hey, maybe we’ll all see the man in a new light.
Apparently Oliver Stone’s movie on the subject, starring Josh Brolin, is by no means sycophantic but certainly sympathetic.

You may recall I blogged this image by Obey, a few weeks ago.
Well, a nice twist came out today.
Sorry the quality’s so poor, but that’s the credit crunch for ya.

Do you think Powell might be off McCain’s Christmas card list?
As for McCain’s smile…

Is this the end in sight for McCain?
For one of the Republicans’ most respected figures to publicly put his faith in the opposition raises a great deal of doubt about the credibility of McCain’s challenge and the fact that he says it’s because McCain chose Palin as his running mate says it all.
What’s more he feels Obama could be a transformational world figure.

More disrespect from McCain to Obama. He’s doing nothing to win over undecided voters with shit like this.

Just when we all thought Obama had nailed it (short of assasination) McCain pulls a rabbit out of the hat.
Now, this is an interesting development.
Sarah Palin has a CV to die for.
She’s a much lauded Alaskan Governor. Check.
She’s a Christian. Check.
She’s an ex beauty queen. Check.
Obviously she’s a woman. Check.
She’s sporty. Check.
She’s in a steady and long term relationship. Check.
She’s a mother of five. Check.
One of her kids is going to Iraq in a few months. Check.
One of them is disabled. Check.
However the whole thing is all a bit random. McCain has only met her once so one could hardly describe this as a meeting of minds. She makes Obama look blessed with foreign affairs acumen and she’s called her kids Track, Piper, Bristol, Willow and Trig. (!)
I’m looking forward to this…

He is rather right wing.
He does rather dwell on his Vietnam days.
TIME OUT! TIME OUT! TIME OUT!
America hates/used to hate anything to do with Vietnam.
Here’s how he’s selling the new American Conservatism

You live through the last ten years of lying politics and suddenly things go a bit tingly.
Barak Obama is undoubtedly the most exciting introduction to the Western political world since Clinton (Mr , not Mrs) and some.
And in Scotland we are graced by Alex Salmond.
In between times Bush bombs; yes, I know, it’s a pun.
Brown just goes pear-shaped – but what can you expect when his boss/predecessor was an inveterate liar?
So. Bring it on. The Presidential election I mean. Because, although I am massively predisposed to Obama, I think we all need to see the debate unfold.
