Burrow, burrow, burrow. Sleep. Burrow. Lay Larva. Eat Brains.

Y'know, we lefty types like to complain about the fear-mongering of the conservatives. What Obama is doing is essentially the same thing. When he talks about McCain, he's warning Americans, don't vote for this guy, you'll end up in the poor house, breathing in toxic waste without any means of attaining medication, while having to simultaneously take care of your aging, atrophying relatives, with only pickles to eat and burlap sacks to wear. Not to mention the flooding from the melted ice caps, the hurricanes, and ice storms and subsequent frostbite, gangrene, self-amputated limbs, succeeding infections, further amputations and infections and amputations. Essentially what Obama is saying is that if McCain is president, we will no longer be a people, we'll be dead. OK, maybe he doesn't quite go to those lengths, but he's essentially doing the same thing that Bush did to get back into office only instead of saying his opponent is a sissypants who'll let terrorists into your bedroom, he's saying his opponent will probably eat your children to celebrate the bombing of Iran. It's the same thing that McCain is doing when he says Obama will run around with a white flag of surrender capitulating to terrorists and "rogue states" at every opportunity.

"We're going to find ourselves spending our sunset years telling our children and our children's children about a time in America, back in the day, when men and women were free [if you vote for the other guy]." —Sarah Palin

Also I heard on NPR today that Obama is outspending McCain 20 to 1 on TV ads in Indiana. It's nice to know America hasn't given up on capitalism and a vote is always for sale.

Our democracy is the suck right now.
