Vote Early

By Christopher Wilde


Early Voting in Murray Utah Yes the line was long for early voting.  Many people came looked at the line and started to leave.  Myself, with the backing of the crowd, we urged them to stay.  The line moved quickly.  I was in and out in half an hour.  It was so much fun I wish I could go again.

Obama assassination plot thwarted

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Law enforcement arrested two men in Tennessee who had plans to rob a gun dealer to shoot Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and "as many non-Caucasians" as possible, an official said on Monday.

An official from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said police found the men in the Jackson, Tennessee area with a number of guns, including a sawed-off shotgun, in their car.

"They wanted to go to a place where they could shoot as many non-Caucasian as they could," the official said, noting that the men first planned to rob a gun dealer. "They also had a plot to assassinate Sen. Obama."

Obama, who would be the first black U.S. president, is leading Republican John McCain in opinion polls ahead of the November 4 election.

Times Backs Barack

By Christopher Wilde


For weeks now I have sat by and written very little about the campaign.  It's been painful to hold my fingers but I've endured.  Fortunately the New York Times has come to my rescue by saying everything I've been thinking.

As Good as an SNL Skit



If you've been following the election closely you should get all of these jokes.  Obama roasts McCain while displaying a graceful self-deprecating humor.

The Final Presidential Debate 2008


8:31 PM MST The best close yet, "Go vote now it will make you feel big and strong."

8:24 PM MST John McCain advocates George Bushes No Child Left Behind.  Hmmmm

8:12 PM MST  Bla abortion the only interesting thing about this debate is the complete separation of the opinion's of men and women in CNN's polling group. 

7:59 PM MST John McCain has consistently come out of these debates lower in the polls.  He's completely blown the opportunity to come out strong with ideas that resonate with people.  Instead he has wasted it on attacks and appeals to "Joe Six-Pack."


7:50 PM MST  For those watching CNN the ticker at the bottom of the screen of undecided votes tends to go up the longer Obama talks.

7:45 PM MST  It's nice that both candidates want to do all of these great things but in the end we are going to be paying for this war for a long time to come.

7:40 PM MST  It's profoundly sad to see John McCain looks so absolutely desperate and pathetic.
