Recapping Rachel's Recap

There's some crazy shit going on out there. But if you don't have the time to pay attention, just check in every now and again with my girlfriend, R. Maddow\.

1) "Warning add": Vote for McCain or you will die... Classy. And such a "change" from politics as usual

2) The "hoax" perpetrated by McCain staffer, Ashley Todd, who reported to police that she was attacked by a large, black, Obama supporter who physically and sexually assaulted her and carved a "B" in her face with a knife... Unfortunately, in addition to the many inconsistencies in her story, when she carved the "B" into her own flesh, she forgot that looking in the mirror would make the B appear backwards.

3) The announcement that $150,000 was put out for Sarah Palin's wardrobe, and the highest paid staffer on the McCain campaign pay role is Gov. Palin's traveling make up artist: $22,000 in 2 weeks.

4) Joe McCain, John's brother was recorded calling 9-1-1 to complain and try to get info about traffic. Then he cursed at the dispatch operator and called back later to complain.


On the flip side, Barack Obama's grandmother is sick. I wonder how sick she must be for him to go there now. I'm sure it is related to the fact that my gram was hospitalized this week, but this news has affected profoundly. I am very sad for Senator Obama that he might lose his grandmother at this pivotal time in his life. I am praying that she lives to see him elected.

I hesitate to say that so nonchalantly. So I'll say this... He is leading in all polls. It looks to be the largest margin of victory in many, many presidential elections. But there is a lot of concern about voter fraud and the security of this election seems questionable. There's shouting and murmuring from both sides, but seriously, I will be rioting in the streets if this shit goes all wrong...
