Yes, we can [hopefully avoid more homonym errors]...

Poor Obama! As if he doesn't have enough going on now, what with trying to win an election against McCain and his pit bull, but now news websites are wantonly chucking homonym errors into his quotes! I mean, obviously we know that Obama said who's, and the person writing the article wrote it as whose, so it's not Obama's fault, but still--it looks embarrassing.

On a side note, is anyone else incensed that John McCain's clever little ploy to win more support by picking a woman as his running mate is actually working? How freakin' transparent of him. But even worse is that so many women are actually rallying behind this woman who wants, among other things, to deny women of certain rights. "Lipstick on a pig" is the tamest thing I'd use to describe this woman. You can't spell the word appalling without the letters P-A-L-I-N. Coincidence? I think not!

Very nice observation! Spread the WORD - You can't spell appalling without Palin!

On a side note - If McCain gets elected I am going to stop obeying the law, and become a very angry vigilante.

Coincidence? I think not!

I think not too!

Ooh, I like the "appalling" slogan. Actually, I am not surprised that his ploy is working. The Republicans have very savvy and sneaky people working for them who know how to spin anything to their advantage. And most Americans buy it because they are stupid.

If McCain gets elected, I might be posting blogs from England or Canada.

That's what I said the last two times. I think I've gotten comfortable hating our president. It would be weird to have someone in the White House whom I actually respected!

Haha! Yeah, I really wouldn't mind ditching this country if McCain/Pit Bull are running it...although that would make it awfully tough to get my MLB fix. Sigh.
