Joe da plumber

PhotobucketLast night's debate was rather boring as most of the debates were anyways. A few points though

1) Who is this Joe da Plumber dude, is he related to Joe sixpack. Is he Joe Sixpack or is Joe da Plumber a Biden alias?

2) McCain was hilarious when he was playing the wounded victim over Rep.Senator John Lewis' comments. I half expected him to break into tears. Whatever guy!

3) McCain called Palin an expert on autism. I've been corrected that Palin's child actually has Down Syndrome but nevertheless lets just image the child had autism. How can you call someone an expert with just 5 months of experience? Now if she had a 12 year old disabled child I could buy that but 5 months really? I guess it was more of the I can see Russia from my front door so I'm a foreign relations expert logic.

4) Whats the big deal with Universal health care? The U.S treats this whole subject like we're asking them to forsake Democracy and institute communism. I'm not saying Universal Health Care is perfect but its really not as bad as you guys make it seem. Even when a health plan sounds like its close to Universal health care they always have to make this disclaimer that its not the same. Seems so silly to me. Plus the US government just took over some banks. Isnt it more socialist to take over banks than to have Universal health care?

5) Have you noticed Obama has a bit of griot in him? He's always trying to tell a story involving real people. "Like the recently laid off carpenter in Boise Idaho who I met last week who is worried about paying for his daughters college education or the midget that I met in Youngstown Pennslvania whose house had been repossessed". De man full a story

Oh and for those interested in the outcome of the Canadian elections. Basically it was a waste of 300 million dollars as the Conservatives won another minority government. We'll probably have another one of these things in a year or so.

ps: I'm thinking if Obama wins and I stress if, then on November 5th we should all blog about it and by all I mean Caribbean, Canadian, American, all you cats that comment here. anybody with me?

griot! I love it. so glad I've been staying up on my vocabulary. Another word I learned recently is REPUDIATE!!!!
anyways,
I'm in.
oh yeah, and autism diagnoses aren't usually given at birth. Maybe usually after the kid is like 4 and won't speak. And even then one can't quite be sure--witness Einstein.
So yeah, Down's Syndrome--and no, not an expert. I heartily agree.

I watched the debate as well, and I must sy that of the three, it was the most interestin of the lot. Lawd, I just wanted Obama to how some backbone and to strike back at the grumpy old man, for I do not knw if he was holding back for fear of being depicted as the angry black man. Sheesh. He can be assertive without being aggressive! He lucky tht McCain got vex and basically hund himself, with the eye rolling an' ting.

I see your point 'bout Sarah. Taking that into context, Jennie McCarthy is more qualified to be the next VP as well!!! Tee hee..

And, I will join the blogger convoy if Obama wins on November 5th, even if it means being lazy and posting a link to your site with the words:

"All 'ya: Read Dis..."

Teeee heeeee....

(BTW - I dont think that "David Santos" knows/speaks English. He's perpetratin'. He posted "Great! Congratulations!" on my post about the recent death of my friend! LOL!!!)

I especially loved the part where Obama checked McShame and told him that the fact that he's put so much weight into this Weatherman thing to fuel his campaign is amusing (paraphrasing of course) Obama sad it much better!

John McCain is fucking 72 years old....hes in his 70s!!!i dont want a 70 year old president who has skin cancer.Is that shalow of me to say??.Its a good chance he could pass away within the next 4 years and then what wil america be stuck with ??Palin??O wow....No thank you.Imagine that basket case running the country

Jazz said...

It's not the US that's against Universal Health Care...it's Republicans. I think free education & health care is BRILLIANT. No one has an excuse to fail. People wouldn't likely abuse welfare.


PS. Your KRS1 quote was perfection!

Who the hell is this Joe da Plumber dude?

Mad Bull said...

I used to wonder who Joe di Plumber was too. I thought it was Joe Grine's sobriquet, because Joe Grine supposed to be in the plumbing business too, laying pipe all over the land! :))
