sunburned tired glad i went

barack obama, originally uploaded by skippy haha.

i just got back from the barack obama rally held in the packed and sunny football stadium of Asheville High School.

i was in a snaking line for about an hour. everybody was in good spirits. people were selling t-shirts, pins, hats, rally towels (i got one $5), stickers, car magnets, berets, for obama.

a woman in line with me has lived in fairbanks alaska for the last 10 years and said it is 'absolutely true, common knowledge' among alaskans that governor palin's oldest son, track, is in iraq as an alternative to jailtime, after vandalizing all the wasilla school buses with friends and other punk activities. so when she talks about him being there because he wanted to do all he can for this country, she's lying.

also that wasilla had to hire somebody to do the budget for her for $30K/year because sarah palin was incapable.

she had some more nuggets but you had to be there.

both sides of the stadium's bleachers were jammed full. along the fences within earshot were 3 deep at least. 50 yards of the playing field were full of old people, young people, black people, white people, babies on shoulders, and so many cameras.

barack obama looks so healthy and energetic and vibrant.

he talked about mccain wanting to 'turn the page' away from the economic crisis with swift boat distractions, and how we are not going to be 'bamboozled' and 'hoodwinked', 'okeydoke?' clearly mocking sarah palin's country bumpkin act.

he talked about health care. the specifics of his plan and how he'll fund it, and the specifics of mccain's plan and how he'll fund it. mccain's way of taxing our insurance benefits is crap. obama's way of taxing the really rich is cool.

as far as taxes go, unless you're really rich and making more than $250K a year, you're way better off with obama.

even if you're really rich, you're the same with obama as you were with clinton, and you're better than you were with reagan.

at the end of his speech, they let go about two dozen white doves and they flew in formation, no undue chaos or fear just grace and peace.

and he was off

guess who's coming to speak at asheville high school tomorrow?

barack obama.

nacho and i trekked down there to check it out. nobody was camping out like i thought there'd be.

they're unloading trucks of podiums and cables and signs. the stadium is beautiful with the blue ridge mountains in the background.

i've heard that sarah palin 'rebounded' in the debate last night. so, blatantly ignoring the actual questions asked of you and rambling your memorized talking points equals good?

i can't imagine her sitting down with a foreign diplomat who needed a translator. would the translator wink? what would the translator do with "joe six pack"? she is an embarrasment. you betcha.

and is it too much to ask that the VP candidate can pronounce NUCLEAR?

nuke. lee. er.
voila! (vwala)

vast variety

KATIE COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?

SARAH PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —

COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.

PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.

COURIC: Can you name any of them?

PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.

if it is such a 'vast variety' why did she blank out, unable to name ONE newspaper or magazine that she reads?

is any single thing about her honest? or intelligent?
