I went to my first rally last night. Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were in Kissimmee, Florida and luckily they held the rally at 11pm or I wouldn’t have been able to go.

35,000 strong is how many people the Orlando Sentinel reports were there.

They came out like old pals. They laughed at each other’s jokes and whispered to each other like new lovers. I heard Obama’s speech was going to be the same – parts of it were, of course, but the rest really wasn’t.

We all remember how great and prosperous our country was under Bill Clinton – what a guy, what a President! It just so happens he needed his dick sucked a little too badly. Unfortunately, he gave the Republicans ammunition against him. He lied under oath.

As a side note, a funny comparison…have you noticed that Bush won’t speak under oath? He lies so much that the Republicans would fall over themselves having to try and defend him from impeachment – that’s why the fucker’s still in office.

We all know how great Clinton was for our economy with each family earning $7,000 more than they were before him. He had some great lines and he’s definitely a looker so that helps. But it was the relationships that struck me. Sure, I loved when Barack said, “Bush has dug us a hole and now he just wants to hand the shovel to McCain” because it’s a great visual and oh, so true, but it was nothing to the looks Barack and Billy gave each other.

I know, I know, Republicans hate Bill Clinton. But no one can deny that our country prospered under his executive leadership. He made this country a glowing example to the rest of the world and he was an economic genius – exactly the type of guy I want to see Barack palling around with, especially at a time like this. It was a gorgeous site:

The man is everywhere – as someone once said, he really is like Visa, everywhere you want to be. Last night, I count 3 places: 1) his infomercial

Doesn’t it look like he was already sitting in the oval office? There should be no question now about what this man would do as President.

2) the rally

(“Who makes less than $250,000 per year? We do!”)

3) the Daily Show with Jon Stewart

A man who surrounds himself with people like Bill Clinton, Warren Buffett and the always great Joe Biden is a man who wants to do great things and wants to get the right answers before jumping into something like the economic crisis head-first.

A man who surrounds himself with someone who called us a nation of whiners and said that we are in a mental recession is not the type of person I want working on our economy.

Bring us back to the days of prosperity and leadership in the world. It is time to heal and put someone in office who has the judgment to lead.

I may still be a little pumped from the rally so for the first and only time I will ever say it outright on here – OBAMA ’08!

We all heard of Joe the “Plumber”. He first came up those 25 times he was mentioned in the last debate. Then we find out that his father was connected to the Keating 5, that he’s not really a plumber, but more of a plant by the republicans. And that’s fine. They can plant people all they want, networks like CNN are trying really hard to be unbiased and research things like this so we can finally know the truth.

Well, today, John McCain and Joe the Plumber were scheduled to speak together. Apparently, someone forgot to tell Johnny that Joe decided not to show

Maybe the should’ve asked “Joe Six-Pack” to be there as a backup, just in case…

According to CNN, he just didn’t go. There was some sort of communication breakdown. No way! John McCain miscommunicate? Nooooooooooooooo!

Man, I love Maine!

This was posted in a Myspace bulletin and I just had to share it, its SO obvious that the McCain camp are getting desperate! (thanks for the bulletin Anne!)

Dozens Of Call Center Workers Walk Off Job In Protest Rather Than Read McCain Script Attacking Obama
By Greg Sargent – October 27, 2008, 5:18PM

Some three dozen workers at a telemarketing call center in Indiana walked off the job rather than read an incendiary McCain campaign script attacking Barack Obama, according to two workers at the center and one of their parents.

Nina Williams, a stay-at-home mom in Lake County, Indiana, tells us that her daughter recently called her from her job at the center, upset that she had been asked to read a script attacking Obama for being “dangerously weak on crime,” “coddling criminals,” and for voting against “protecting children from danger.

Williams’ daughter told her that up to 40 of her co-workers had refused to read the script, and had left the call center after supervisors told them that they would have to either read the call or leave, Williams says. The call center is called Americall, and it’s located in Hobart, IN.

“They walked out,” Williams says of her daughter and her co-workers, adding that they weren’t fired but willingly sacrificed pay rather than read the lines. “They were told [by supervisors], ..If you all leave, you’re not gonna get paid for the rest of the day.

The daughter, who wanted her name withheld fearing retribution from her employer, confirmed the story to us. “It was like at least 40 people,” the daughter said. “People thought the script was nasty and they didn’t wanna read it.

A second worker at the call center confirmed the episode, saying that “at least 30” workers had walked out after refusing to read the script.

“We were asked to read something saying [Obama and Democrats] were against protecting children from danger,” this worker said. “I wouldn’t do it. A lot of people left. They thought it was disgusting.

This worker, too, confirmed sacrificing pay to walk out, saying her supervisor told her: “If you don’t wanna phone it you can just go home for the day.

The script coincided with this robo-slime call running in other states, but because robocalling is illegal in Indiana it was being read by call center workers.

Representatives at Americall in Indiana, and at the company’s corporate headquarters in Naperville, Illinois, didn’t return calls for comment.

I am sick and fucking tired of ignorant people being the tone of the McCain campaign. I’m irate that John McCain and Sarah Palin started talking about Obama as though he were a terrorist. We always knew that fearmongering would be part of the GOP platform, but this? This is emotional terrorism. Yes, I said it. They are trying to terrorize our emotions and our deepest fears by lying and pointing out things that are ludicrous and threatening someone’s life. Kill him, bomb him, he’s a terrorist, an Arab, a Muslim. We do not need this bullshit in our politics. Our country is headed down the shitter and people are talking about murdering the one man who even seems to have any clue how to fix it.

Sure, John McCain took the microphone away from a woman who called Obama an Arab. Does that stop him from instilling people with doubts anyway? No. “We need to know who the real Obama is.” We DO know who the real Obama is. Who the hell are you, John? Besides, of course, a liar and a being who feeds on the fears of others.

And John McCain is PROUD of these people. In last night’s debate he said, “I’m proud of the people that come to our rallies….there have been things yelled at your rallies, Senator Obama, that I’m not happy about either”. Like what? Has anyone threatened John McCain’s life at an Obama rally? Anyone? No! John McCain has to say he’s proud of these people because they’re the only ones he has left. And heaven knows, we don’t want to scare away the racist nutjobs. After all, they get to vote too.

John McCain brought up Rep. John Lewis and his statement that McCain and Palin are “sowing the seeds of hatred”. And he’s right! Why hasn’t McCain said that Sarah Palin’s statement about Obama palling around with Bill Ayers is ridiculous slander? For someone whose Keating 5 skeletons are scarier than any supposed involvement Obama could have possibly had when he was 8 years old (the time Ayers was with Weather Underground), don’t you think you might just want to keep your mouth shut about questionable associations?

It’s all about a snowball effect. You start with the small lies: “Obama called Palin a pig”. Move to bigger lies: “Obama wants to teach sex to Kindergartners” and then it becomes “Obama pals with terrorists”. John McCain’s campaign seems to be run by the worst kind of people: lying, unethical, emotional terrorists. We are in the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and what McCain has at his rallies aren’t people concerned about this – they are people concerned about killing and bombing Barack Obama. He is a Christian, American citizen. How anyone gets away with saying such threatening and terrible things about someone who has been serving our country, has a family who needs him, and is only trying to help this country gets back on his feet is beyond me.

Barack Obama is not the terrorist, Mr. McCain. Your supporters are. Stop NOW before something happens that you can not reverse because you failed to repudiate your own VP.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Stop the hate, stop the racism, and stop praising your supporters who are encouraging violence and murder. Be the man we saw in 2000 and have some fucking conviction for what’s right, not just what you think is right for you. Because, Senator McCain, what seems to be right for you is wrong for the rest of us. So practice what you preach and put the COUNTRY FIRST!

Obama said the below at a political rally in Philadelphia, does anyone else get goosebumps reading this?

“But here’s the thing Philadelphia. They can run misleading ads, and pursue the politics of anything goes, they can try to change the subject. They can do that what they want to do because the American people understand what’s going on — but it’s not going to work. Not this time.”

Well, I was figuratively flipping through the news of the web pages and came across an article regarding Rosie O’Donnell’s return to t.v. She plans on hosting a variety show (co-produced by another stand-up comedian) that will air in the near future. This set my train of thought in motion this early morn.

At first, I thought I let my first blog entry be about Rosie’s return (sparking my entertainment-themed blog), which would be hard to do without mentioning her last t.v. appearance (her much publicized exit from The View on ABC). That would get me started talking politics for sure (which I’m trying to avoid…Not because I can’t…my “boss” says I can write about anything but there is already someone cornering the political market. We can do without the political saturation). 

So, I decided to compromise with myself and write a semi-political but mostly entertainment related article about celebrities and politics. If you look back, you’ll see that celebrities get hammered by the public over voicing thier political views. If you look closer, you’ll notice it is mostly conservative republicans who have a problem with liberal celebrities. They tend to get real childish, too. All of a sudden The Dixie Chicks have no singing ability (although country music fans made 2 of thier albums some of the best-sellers of all time and they won several major awards). Susan Sarandon can’t act (though she has a slew of hit movies) and Rosie O is a horrible person (though she’s won major awards, had a few hit movies, and has given more money away to needy families, children, and the general public than most other celebrities).

The fact is, people aren’t mad because celebrities are speaking thier mind. Republicans are only upset with the ones that don’t agree with them. I mean, fans weren’t burning Toby Kieth’s cd’s when he produced that juvenile and violence-promoting “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue” (which came close to being a bit racist).

The thing is, celebrities are just people that the media follows around. We shouldn’t be mad at them. They speak their mind just like the rest of us non-celebrities do. It’s just that no one is really listening to us…

So sing on, Dixie Chicks. Speak up, Sharon Stone. And as for Rosie…well, I hope that she steers clear of political humor. Not because I disagree, but I want America to love her again.

On a side note; McCain has done everything in his power to stall the “Getting To Know You” part of his campaign. He says that he went to Washinton to help in this crisis, but he doesn’t understand that we have a very small window before elections. We NEEDED the debates in order to help us make a decision. However, it wasn’t just the debates that he has avoided. My first thought was, he didn’t want America to learn something about Sarah Palin or that he is trying to protect her from the “big bad media” due to her gender and lack of experience. But considering where she is from, I think it is much much more than that.
