    Well, today my Obama sign was missing from the yard -- probably taken some time in the night.

    Dear God, a new attack ad on Al Franken featuring
    -Jon Ratzenberger
    -Victoria Jackson
    and PAT BOONE



    What. The. Fuck.

    By the way, Robert Davi is the guy from "Showgirls" who said "It must be strange not having people cum on you"

    Well, the GOP was fun while it lasted.

    Here's a big huge demonstration of how different the two campaigns truly are.On those rare occasions McCain actually speaks out against the anti-Obama slurs, his own crowd tends to boo him. On the other hand, when Obama's speaking to a crowd that begins to collectively boo at the mention of McCain (and it should also be noted, Obama's rallies really don't seem to ever include anyone spouting off with some rude slur against McCain or Palin, or if they do, it's evidently not making the rounds on YouTube), Obama calms down the crowd, and turns their negative boos into a positive roar of enthusiasm when Obama says we don't need to boo, we just need to vote.
    I think McCain's campaign has learned that they really do need the xenophobic vote and shouldn't piss them off, which is why you don't see either McCain or Palin trying too quickly to fight back the negative slurs and chants and all. Obama, on the other hand, remains pristine and damned gentlemanly.

    @orwellseyes: Nothing says Hollywood like a bunch of washed-up, out of work actors. Christ.

    @Loki

    hey! John Ratzenberger has been in all the Pixar movies. Back off man. Just back off.

    @Lokizero:

    I wonder if the folks at Pixar are finally gonna stop giving John Ratzenberger work now. The long knives come out for Cliff Claven at last.

    My father-in-law told me over the weekend he's going to be a poll monitor in Missouri on election day. He would've in Kansas (He lives in Lenexa, outside of KCK), but that state is going red no matter what.
    I deny the truth of that statement, and remain optimistic that Kansas might maybe hopefully possibly surprise some people. Slattery for Senate! (I'm Lenexa too.)

    I was just there over the weekend, we're moving to Overland Park at the end of the year. That's two more libs for the next election cycle. :)

    That's where I knew the name Ratzenberger from! I had no idea who the heck that guy was, but yeah, he's been in everything, they call him the lucky charm at Pixar.

    I was more intrigued by Victoria Jackson, I remember her in the very excellent UHF.

    I kind of liked the anti-Franken ad. It was a great reminder that Franken’s just a crazy has-been who makes a living by feuding with Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh. I’d rather have a Republican in the Senate than Franken.

    I love how the American right bitches about Hollywood celebrities supporting the Democrats then basically cream themselves when some has-been endorses a Republican.

    @James:

    Minnesota elected a wrestler governor.

    Al Franken is a, admittedly small, step up.

    I'm just stunned Americans haven't elected more celebrities. After Arnold took California I was expecting to see Senator Pitt.

    That'd be excellent if Obama wins, everybody around him does the Arsenio Hall "WOOF, WOOF, WOOF!!"

    At this point, are any of you guys going to call it for McCain? Warren?

    I don't think he will take it, but I just have a horrible feeling.
