    The 2nd guy—the one who says “Obama’s a terrorist, don’t you know that?”—doesn’t he look and sound like Hesh from “The Sopranos”?

    You can just see the terror in these people’s eyes, just like Hank, that they’ll be watching a black man be inaugurated in late January 2009.

    Yes, because if we know one thing about me it’s that I’m a McCain loving right winger who hates socialism….

    When you try and insult me, at least have it make sense.

    sort of underscores the point, no?

    Before McCain spoke, a Christian pastor offered a prayer that seemed [ed- seemed??? wtf?] to ask for divine intervention on his behalf. “There are millions of people around this world praying to their God — whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that [McCain’s] opponent wins for a variety of reasons,” Pastor Arnold Conrad said. “And, Lord, I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens.”

    There’s some lovely ignorance for ya right there. But, it amuses me greatly to think this election also turns out to be a referendum on the bigness of various gods. Naturally,

    The McCain campaign said it did not condone the prayer.

    Yeah, you only invited they guy, but he might say some things you disagree with. Smart.

    “While we understand the important role that faith plays in informing the votes of Iowans, questions about the religious background of the candidates only serve to distract from the real questions in this race about Barack Obama’s judgment, policies and readiness to lead as commander in chief,” Wendy Riemann, McCain’s Iowa spokeswoman, said.

    I didn’t see where the good pastor actually raised any questions re Obama’s religious background (might not have made the excerpt), but the McCain spokeswoman is disingenuous at best with the topic-shifting defense.

    McCain campaign slogan: God embiggens us all.
