I'm Crying Tears Made of OMG
And wiping them from my face with a tissue made of WTF

This hot off the press: McCain booed after trying to calm anti-Obama crowd. I'm ashamed to see it happened in Minnesota.

McCain was booed by his own supporters Friday when, in an abrupt switch from raising questions about Barack Obama's character, he described the Democrat as a "decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States."

A sense of grievance spilling into rage has gripped some GOP events this week as McCain supporters see his presidential campaign lag against Obama. Some in the audience are making it personal, against the Democrat. Shouts of "traitor," "terrorist," "treason," "liar," and even "off with his head" have rung from the crowd at McCain and Sarah Palin rallies, and gone unchallenged by them.

McCain changed his tone Friday when supporters at a town hall pressed him to be rougher on Obama. A voter said, "The people here in Minnesota want to see a real fight." Another said Obama would lead the U.S. into socialism. Another said he did not want his unborn child raised in a country led by Obama.

"If you want a fight, we will fight," McCain said. "But we will be respectful. I admire Sen. Obama and his accomplishments." When people booed, he cut them off.

Ok, you have to click on the link and read the whole article, because I don't want to paste the entire article here...even though it's all worth quoting. And then killing yourself over. Je-sus Christ. I have to respect McCain for at least trying to quell the crazy-fuckin' hatred that's being spewed. At least today...he hasn't done much in the recent past to do so. And Palin? She's pretty much encouraging people to get out their pitchforks, warm their tar, and pluck their chickens.

Also off the press, Alaska panel finds Palin abused power in firing. "Sarah Palin unlawfully abused her power as governor by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired as a state trooper...A bipartisan panel...found Palin in violation of a state ethics law that prohibits public officials from using their office for personal gain."

Off with her head!!!

How about this article: NY election mix-up: 'Osama' on the ballot. "Who is running for president? In an upstate New York county, hundreds of voters have been sent absentee ballots in which they could vote for 'Barack Osama.'"

Seriously. How? How??? Does no one proofread anything anymore???

On the positive news front, Court makes Conn. 3rd state to allow gay marriage.

That was the one bit of news that prevented me from repeatedly slamming my head against the wall. That, and the news about the shark that had a virgin birth. Jesus returned as a hammerhead shark!!! And was promptly eaten by other sharks!!!! This time he died for the sins of sharks. Now sharks can go marauding and kill humans without the fear of going to hell. As long as they believe that Jesus died for them. Sharks are creepy.
