Re: “"We've got a president who looks like us"

Thanks for the tip about mediamatters -- I was really mostly using it for the photos, rather than the text.

Re: “"We've got a president who looks like us"

Right -- I definitely voted for him because he looks like me. (For the record, I'm 31, female, and white. Real strong resemblance there.) Is this comment a joke? Did you even listen to anything Senator McCain said about him -- that he's a good, moral, family man who loves America? Does this mean that choosing your candidate based on internet rumors that have been repeatedly proven false is actually the rational thing to do? See http://mediamatters.org/items/200710240006?f=h_latest for the flag-saluting bit (as well as a picture of George W. Bush with his hand on his stomach as everyone around him salutes the flag). As far as the grandmother thing goes, he explicitly said that he believed his grandmother "harbor(ed) no racial animosity," but that she sometimes did or said things that made him uncomfortable. And, hey, my white grandmother's a racist. It doesn't mean I don't love her. "Radical terrorist supporter"? Is this still about Bill Ayers? Have you done any research on this at all -- see http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/ayers.asp -- or just believed what you heard? If you believe he's insufficiently qualified or experienced, just stick to that. Adding in a bunch of other stuff that is verifiably untrue weakens your argument.
