I to think McCain. Right now America needs someone who can really make some changes. McCain and Palin have proven they can make huge changes.

McCain. Polls mean nothing - the fact in any election is that old people vote. They don't flood internet polls, they just watch the news, judge you, and vote. And most old people are crusty conservatives. :) Thus... the silent majority.

And he's the pick of a piss-poor litter, so he gets my vote.

12.6% of the American population is over the age of 65. How many people over 65 do you know cast their vote in internet polls? 60.1% of the population is between the ages 20-64. 20-30 year-olds do most of the polling. Beyond that, you've got roughly 30 million people (and that's being generous) that probably NEVER contribute to online political polls. Personally, I imagine the majority of the silent majority is going to vote Republican.

Yes... pretty interesting to watch a guy who has been in Washington long enough to have known Lincoln personally against a lady from just about as far from there as possible.

I do think McCain will win though. Obama as a archetype represents some scary things for ALOT of Americans. This is going to be a "vote against a canidate" election.


BTW... I will mis 'ole pres "make-up a word"

And it ends as expected! Palin exceeded expectations and thus can chalk it up as a victory. Biden threw his weight around, and thus the Dems will chalk up it as THEIR victory. And Indecision 2008 rolls on...

For those that missed the debate, I took the time to transcribe it for you:

Palin: "Say it ain't so, Joe! Golly gee, gosh darn! Energy! Special needs! Moose burger? Moose burger!"

Biden: "Change. George Bush! Hold on a second. 35 years! Jesus Christ my teeth are white!"

The end.

Well I wouldnt say it was Palin's victory, she did exceed expectations but you must understand at what level those expectations were set.

IMO neither won and I was hoping something drastic was going to happen to help improve upon indecision of 08.
