what nobody's saying

At both presidential debates, I've gotten a very ugly vibe off of Senator John McCain. Nobody's said it, or if they have, I haven't heard it, but in both debates the impression I get from Senator McCain is someone who doesn't want to be on the same stage at the uppity Negro. Both in the first debate, where he wouldn't even look at Senator Obama, and tonight, where he referred to the senator as "that one," and refused to stick around and press the flesh with the audience afterward (which Senator Obama and his wife both did), I really felt like Senator McCain wasn't comfortable being in the same room as the junior senator from Illinois, much less the same stage.

Did anybody else get that vibe?

"The Ex-Beauty Queen's Got a Gun"

Many moons ago, Julie Brown did a magnificent song called "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun." If you don't recall it here a link to the video on YouTube. It's a classic bit of comedy.

Well, Ms. Brown has updated the song for Governor Sarah Palin: "The Ex-Beauty Queen's Got a Gun." You can download the song through Brown's web site.

Thanks to marcgunn for the heads-up.....
