Come in! Come in!
"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

I've been working on 'family stuff' after being totally verclempt with the announcement of "That-Ain't-No-Lady" Sarah Palin as the presumptive Republican nominee for VEEP.
You only have to look at McCain as he watches Palin to know that he's scared to death of her. Just look at the pained expression on his face. Well, that, and the way he pulls on his pinky finger as she talks.
I must say, however, that the McCain strategy worked in this way: He and Lady Sarah have totally stolen the thunder from Obama's amazing acceptance speech. The only thing on the news is the shock waves of the VEEP selection and NOT Obama's speech.
Pity, because it was wonderful - made me feel proud to be an American again. Oops, wasn't that the same line that got Michele in trouble?
I think THIS clip from The Colbert Report is all that needs to be said about the VEEP selection. Let's just have a good laugh and get over it and on with it, shall we?
After all, I think that's all it was really meant to do.
I mean, otherwise, it would be HUGELY insulting to women and McCain did this because he wants the vote of women.
Right? Somebody tell me that's right. It's just a little birthday joke on McCain's 72nd birthday yesterday, right?.
