This pretty much says it all...

Yesterday, in the water, underway just off the tip of a Wall Street engulfed in the flames of greed, I spied this Hunter 41, sporting a custom-made Kevlar McCain/Palin promotional sail that must have cost upwards of $40,000, and was presumably a rush order, once McCain's thoughtful and inspiring choice of a vice-president had been announced. What obliviousness to the world's realities must it take to commission, pay for, and then proudly raise this repugnant, ostentatious frivolity of a mainsail? The only good thing we can say about this is that the extraordinary arrogance of it is guaranteed to repulse, driving yet more voters into the Obama camp. I'm sensing an Obama landslide, after which this sail will be nothing more than an embarrassing, amusing historical curio, available on eBay.

I much prefer this Red Hook waterfront expression of political support, which cost nothing more than some sweat equity and a couple of cans of paint, and is visible to all the traffic in New York harbor.

Well, how much money did it take for Obama to finish his education at Harvard that obviously he didn't have. Would you say it is money well spent? He has this radical view against America and once he conquers the Americans, it will be easier for him to sow his ideas and ideals; socialism and radicalism all against what our forefathers had envisioned America to be.

Anonymous, naturally. What nonsense. His Harvard education was expensive, but obviously he didn't get a Harvard education? Or, he obviously didn't have the money? "Radical view against America?" "Conquers the Americans?" "Socialism?" I'm so relieved to read yet more evidence that the only supporters Obama's opposition seem able to muster are racist fringe-dwelling kukalori like this.

why is it that McCain/Palin supporters seem to be the wealthiest 2% and the most ignorant 30% of America...and nobody from the middle?
