Ready to smear but not ready to lead

I really do not like that phrase "lipstick on a pig", no matter to whom it is applied. An obama misstep, and a shameful one at that.

Me neither. But to be fair, Sarah was the one who used it about herself in a joke about Hockey Moms. And, again, not that it's right, but it's a helluva better than calling your wife a C***

Mrs Palin called herself a hockey mom. Not a pig. big difference.

It was wrong of Obama to call her that, just as it was wrong for McCain to call his wife that. I blogged about this issue earlier,

Let's not get into a discussion like "but he did it worser!' Both smears are wrong. Both men are wrong.

Interestingly enough McCain himself has used this very phrase speaking of Hillary Clinton. That makes them all wrong. surely we can do better.

Ron Paul touts third-party candidates

WASHINGTON — Rep. Ron Paul, whose antiwar campaign galvanized an army of young people during his Republican presidential run, is now something of a third-party power broker, with both the McCain team and the Libertarian Party vying for his support.

The Lake Jackson, Texas, congressman held a news conference Wednesday to present a united front of minor-party presidential candidates — independent Ralph Nader, the Green Party’s Cynthia McKinney and the Constitution Party’s Chuck Baldwin — on issues important to him and to declare his preferred candidate, which turned out to be anyone but the Democratic or Republican nominees.

“Presidential elections turn out to be more of a charade than anything else,” said Dr. Paul, adding there was no difference between the major-party candidates, Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama.

A charade, how true. I used to think third party votes were throw away votes. If this is the best our parties can do, then for the first time in my life I will opt out and "throw away" my vote as a protest.
