...is giving many LPSG members premature election elation! I am amused by the political posts. I haven't been this entertained here since Sugar and Spice posted that she wanted to marry a Canadian for health benefits. Seems like there is much heavy breathing & drooling going on in these parts by Obama supporters that feel that the troubles being experienced by McCain's VP pick mean that happy days are here again. Calm down! Still over 2 months to the election. Here in Washington DC those with real political smarts are not packing any bags to move into the White House yet. That includes McCain, Obama, Biden and Palin and their small armies of political advisers. Joe Biden is not licking his lips waiting for his debate with Sarah Palin. He is preparing. The biggest mistake would be to underestimate the opponent. Hillary Clinton made that mistake with Barack Obama. Rudy thought he would be the Repubilican nominee. Does anyone remember that? McCain was so down and out that he was carrying his own bags at the airport. No one thought he had a chance. I do not know who will win or lose. But it will be interesting. There will be more attacks and suprizes. And eventually a winner and a loser. Keep in mind - no matter who wins or loses - the impact on your life and what is making you angry probably won't change too much. For all their talk, politicians don't really care about us and our problems. And even if they did, the bureaucracy here will stifle them to the point of near paralysis. I just hope everyone remembers that this is not a political forum of like minded individuals. You may hate democrats or you may hate republicans (or liberals/conservatives). When you start venting your anger it is often a prelude to spewing hate. There are enough people of differing philosophies here that you will cause bad feelings and make enemies of those members who are probably good people who just disagree with you. Ditto for Christian haters. Please post thoughtfully and respectfully. You may now hijack this thread and vent anger and spew hate. :angryfire: ....and crucify Christians.
