Instead of comparing world's largest company to Joe Buckeye, let's make an apples-to-apples comparison

Senator Obama, on Exxon-Mobil in an attack on John McCain's energy proscriptions:
A company that, last quarter, made the same amount of money in 30 seconds that a typical Ohio worker makes in a year.

AE, on Obama in a ridicule of Obama's rhetoric:
A politician who, last year, made the same amount of money in three days that a typical Ohio worker makes in a year.

You ought to send this to the McCain campaign.

A lot of people are starting to look into Obama's Chicago period. After looking at that can of putrid worms, it is difficult to see any intelligent person who cares about the country pulling the lever for Obama. Unless the lever is on a gallows, that is. ;-)

That doesn't mean it will be easy to vote for McCain.

If the were able to get it out stealthily, it might be useful. But the McCains are worth a lot more than the Obamas are, so the Obama campaign could potentially retort by pointing that out.


If you were living stateside, would you? I wonder if my Presidential voting behavior will be nothing but third-party throwaways from here to the grave...

As long as the moronic One Moron, One Vote stays in effect - Voting third party is better for your personal sanity.

As a side note - its quite amusing to read some of Thomas Sowell's recent columns where he exhorts people to vote for McCain and not a third party because its better than Obama, but never goes all the way and mentions the real problems.

Anyway, he cant even look the race issue in the face. I guess Im asking too much.
