Obama's bracelet inscription, WWJD (What would John do?)

Chatteringteeth Weather News UPDATE:
A rare hurricane spun past Maine and hit Canada Sunday. The hurricane immediately filed to legally change it's name from "Kyle" to "Gretzky". The judge told it to "take off, eh?"

"Ba dum bum!"

McCain obviously won the debate last week. End of discussion.
John McCain Discusses His Bracelet


MCCAIN: He was 22 years old and he was killed in combat outside of Baghdad, Matthew Stanley, before Christmas last year. This was last August, a year ago. And I said, “I will — I will wear his bracelet with honor.”

OBAMA: Jim, let me just make a point. I’ve got a bracelet, too, from Sergeant (looking down at notes and thinking "what the heck is that dead soldier's name who I plan on exploiting again? Sure, it's against the family's wishes, but I have an election to win here! Ah, here it is! Now look up and deliver this dead dude's name with manufactured emotion while scanning the horizon with your nose in the air...") - from the mother of Sergeant Ryan David Jopeck.

Obama comes off as a petulant child when on the same stage as McCain. This “me too” moment, as Ed Morrissey of Hot Air put it, is a glaring example of this contrast. It's like he is silently singing, "anything John can do, I can do better. I can do anything better than John..."

More from the debate (OK, not really):

MCCAIN: I spent 5½ years in captivity as a POW in North Vietnam, and was brutally tortured for my patriotism and love of my country.

OBAMA: Jim, let me just make a point. I was brutally tortured too. In fact, I still am. You've met my wife Michelle, right? As for the "love of country" thingy - hey, I wear a flag pin on the ol' lapel these days.

Now comes the squareoff this week between Joe "gaffe machine" Biden and Sarah Palin in their first vice-presidential debate. I wonder if Joe will follow Barry's strategy lead on this? Maybe something like...

BIDEN: I am quite aware that the video of Sarah participating in the 1984 Miss Alaska swimsuit competition is climbing the viral internet charts. Jim, let me just make a point. While I have home movies of me performing the "Buns of Steel" workout in my glittered unitard, I have a popular internet video of "ME TOO". Stand up for Chuck!

You must be the 30% who thought McCain won the debate. While your candidate tanks in the polls,and his running mate gives more cringe-worthy interviews, keep up with the crappy jokes & 'observations'.

You forgot to close your ramblings with the standard "Obama In The Highest"

Hey Blade- You got the wacky libs back! I enjoy their disjointed ramblings. It's like listening to NPR our government sponsored radio station.

Thanks for stopping by anonymous. Keep this up and I will be happy to assign you your very own fake internet monikor.

As for who won the debate, I'm not sure what poll you checked for your "facts", (Daily Kos?) but every right thinking poll I've seen has your guy on the wrong end. That's ok, I'm quite aware that "who won" is subjective, based on one's values (or lack thereof) and core beliefs. It's all perspective. Heck, I'll even bet that Pic Pic laughed at my "crappy joke"!

Come back soon so I can tweak your nose again!
