Who is the real winner of this competition?? Was it Barack Obama? Was it John MCcain? Was it Sarah Palin's popularity and notoriety? Or was it the American people? In fact, wouldn't it be interesting if we could just vote by phoning in like they do on Dancing With The Stars?
It's all relative, I guess, but the bottom line is that the last debate wasn't about McCain, Obama, or even politics. It was about the millions of Americans out there without jobs, the millions of Americans without health care, and the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. That's what the last debate was all about...and there was only one candidate actually willing to speak freely about those issues. I'm sure you all know who!
It's pretty obvious that old man McCain- yea, I said it! He's old! - is basically becoming that mean old man that refuses to be social. He'd rather stay encompassed in his world of the old Washington right wing elite. I read an article the other day in the paper that Oliver Stone invited both John McCain and Sarah Palin to the premiere of his new non-partisan film W. It's a biopic on the life of current President George W. Bush. Oliver Stone has made other non-partisan flicks like Nixon and JFK. Stone invited both candidates to the premiere but they declined the offer. However, it added insult to injury when the premiere of the film was located at the Ziegfeld theater in NYC and both Palin and MCcain were staying at the Hilton hotel directly across the street! Ouch!
So wouldn't it be interesting if we can just vote by phoning in like they do on Dancing With The Stars? Then again, that method would just be an easier way to compromise people's votes...Maybe.
