I’m sorry for the long long long long delay for an update but I was on vacation for the first week of September and decided to take a vacation from cyber-living. Also, my laptop had to go into the shop and most of my stuff I do for this site is on my computer on work (I need to fix that lest I get fired on the fly)…and then when I came back, my first priority was to do this but Lou S.

My favorite aspect of the Obama campaign is the racism.
I know that seems silly but I appreciate all those folks who are just being honest about how they feel about Blacks and Muslims.
All this open racism is refreshing.
Here are some samples:
- Racist Ohioan Mike Lunsford Hangs Obama Effigy from Noose in Tree
- Inland GOP mailing depicts Obama’s face on food stamp
- Obama Monkey At A Palin Rally
- The McCain-Palin Mob
- The Sidewalk to Nowhere, McCain Supporters in Bethlehem, PA
- Misconceptions of Obama fuel Republican campaign
So everyone who thinks the country is so different because a mixed man is running for president and may win, keep thinking.
