This has got to be the most outrageous thing I've heard all day:

“Equality, which is the primary value of the left, is a European value, not an American value.”

And who, you ask, is the idiot making that statement? Dennis Prager, a right-wing talk radio host, while stumping for Republicans in Minnesota. Wonder how many copies of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution he has received since saying that? Maybe he's been taking history lessons from Dubya. What are these guys smoking? I mean, I know it's been a rough campaign year for Republicans, but sheesh!

It makes about as much sense as McCain criticizing Obama (last night on Larry King) for wanting to spread the wealth around, then five minutes later saying that "taxes pay to keep our government secure, to help those who can't help themselves and other functions of government,” claiming that is far different from Obama's plan "to take from one group of Americans and give it to another." Oh, and don't ask him how Governor Palin's sharing of oil profits with all Alaskans is different from the socialism that Obama is allegedly advocating. He can't explain that either.

The most encouraging thing I've heard today is that McCain got stood up by Joe the Plumber! He was supposed to be at a rally, but when the old man called out to recognize him, he was a NO SHOW! The other encouraging thing I saw is Sheppard Smith of FOX News defending Obama after Joe the Plumber claimed Obama is no friend of Israel. Wow! Who'd a thunk it! Today I'm proud to claim Sheppard Smith as a native Mississippian. Good for you, young man!

I'm thinking of making a T-shirt that says: This Jo, the liberated woman, supports Obama/Biden! Whaddaya think?
