People just don't get it

All day long, I've been listening to people on the radio talk about how excited they are for the opportunity to vote for a black president - they thought they'd never see it in their lifetime.

And it's ok not to be, just not ok to lie about it to get votes. I could go on and on, but I'm not nearly as qualified as everyone else out there to talk about it. I hope Obama isn't elected president at this point, but if he is, I will look for the bright side.

McCain and Palin called Rashid Khalidi a former spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization, a characterization Khalidi has denied in the past. Both candidates said guests at the party made critical comments about Israel...
