  2. Precisely. Who would you rather have “learn on the job”–the Prez or the Veep?

  3. What’s wrong is that it shows McCain’s stack as having positive height, when in reality it should be negative, since experience has the opposite effect when you always get shit wrong.

  4. Laura,

    That Obama has such a vastly superior set of policies (and all around integrity) than McCain at such a young age is a testament to his sheer brilliance. Sign me up. I don’t want an economically fucking clueless war-monger with dementia as my leader.

  5. What’s wrong is the fact that it was the McCain caompaign that threw the ‘lack of experience’ wing-ding into the ring first and then follows up with this.
    I envision it like a melodrama:

    America, our damsel in distress lies on the tracks, bound and helpless before an on-rushing train!

    (crowd groans in dismay)

    Suddenly! Barack Obama steps into the scene (crowd cheers!) with a knife in hand, ready to free the damsel and save the day!

    Barack: Don’t worry fair lady, I’ll save you!

    In an un-expected turn of events, John McCain, the villain, steps out of the shadows, holding a .44 magnum! (crowd boos)

    John: Not so fast Barack! You silly fool, you’ve fallen into my trap! (McCain twirls mustache and gestures smugly with his pistol)(crowd groans in dismay again)

    Barack: (With a smug smile of his own)A trap is it? (he whistles and suddenly, silhouetted on the far ridgline is the shape of Biden, holding a Sharps rifle!)(crowd goes wild)

    John: Oh yes, a trap indeed! (he whistles and suddenly an matron in a dress with a potato peeler stumbles out onto the tracks, oddly standing between the train and the damsel in distress) What say you now Barack? Where is your heroism?

    Barack: Ummm what? (crowd is confused and pelts John with rotten vegetables)

    Mixed messages much McCain?

    Like what? And what exactly has Obama gotten right?
