Election Day and goodbye political ads!

Happy Election Day! Now, go vote! And pick up your free Starbuck's coffee and Ben & Jerry's ice cream while you're at it.


I was going to leave it at that, but with the candidates stumping today, why not say a little more?

Elizabeth Dole vs Kay Hagan has gotten a bit ridiculous. Those rocking chair ads are quite corny; this ad is not so much funny ha-ha...oh, but, maybe it is.

I mean, if Dole wanted to go there, she really should have spliced some words together that Hagan actually said. The fake voice was unbelievable!

Speaking of "going there"... McCain has repeatedly stated that he's not going to pursue the Rev. Wright angle. He didn't say something like off limits, so perhaps he was speaking in code to GOP affiliated groups to have at it. And that they did.

McCain isn't exactly clear of crazy, extreme, fringe religious fanatics and shady types, so it's a bit risky for him to allow groups to do this in his name... George Bush, Sarah Palin, Alan Cranston, Dennis DeConcini, Donald Riegle, Michael Bowers, Charles Keating, Jim Hensley, Vicki Iseman, Ileane Ros-Lehtinen, Peter King, Richard Quinn, Fred Malek, G. Gordon Liddy, John Hagee, Rod Parsley, Rick Davis, Bill Cunningham... maybe not so risky as it will all be over today.

And a bit of the super corny and funny. A musical with candidate heads superimposed on dancers. A moveon.org bit I think, so conservatives beware.
My Friends, the musical:
