Yikes

It scares me that people my age are not informed about the current presidential candidates/elections. (I've realized this through random comments, etc.)
Yesterday in a speech in FL - McCain said that the fundamentals of the economy are sound, even in this tough time. Um, did he NOT hear what happened to Wall Street?? Lehman Bros. - bankrupt, Merrill Lynch - bought by Bank of America, AIG - in serious trouble. He is out of touch.

Also - from the creators of this site:

"Ms. Palin's political views are in every way a slap in the face to the accomplishments that our mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers so fiercely fought for, and that we've so demonstrably benefited from.
First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over women voters..."

These two are not the answer. If you disagree, I'm intrigued to know why.

I am shocked. SHOCKED at that fact that there are COLLEGE EDUCATED people are in SUPPORT of Palin.

I too am curious as to their reasoning.

Seriously.
I know of one person who says they are supporting McCain because they 'don't trust Obama'. But that is all they can tell me. Infuriating.
