The Final Debate

October 16, 2008

So, in order for McCain to have more than a snowball’s chance on Tatooine, he was going to have to pull out the Ultimate Trump Card. Seems like it really doesn’t exist (not surprised, personally). Can’t say that I wasn’t thinking that it was possible that McCain had been sitting on something this whole time, but it seems, if Nate Silver is to be believed, it will take some kind of miracle for the vote to swing back his way.

Now, I’m often one for betting on high risk, high payoff situations, but while the odds are against McCain, and, if I were to bet on him, the payout could be good, I don’t think this is an overall “high payoff” situation. While I’m all one for deregulation of certain things – you know, perhaps gambling or bans and such things – that isn’t what we need right now. Even out here in the Outer Rim, we’ve felt the financial troubles that are affecting everyone.

Regulation is what we need, and it looks like I’m going to have to stick with the pirate title.

The Battleground

September 23, 2008

I have to say that this election is turning into one of the most interesting and strangest set ups I have seen. See, I’m pretty sure that it is John McCain who is running for President, but it seems as though Palin and the media don’t think so. They seem to enjoy pitting her against Barack Obama, instead of her equivalent on the rival party’s ticket, Joe Biden.

There are several other battles going on here. The first and most prominent is, of course, Obama vs. Palin/McCain McCain/Palin, which seems to continually focus on Obama vs. Palin.

We’ve also got what should be the main debating point, Obama vs. McSame, as well as Now we get to some interesting ones!

McCains vs. McCain – his own family doesn’t support him!

Oh, and don’t forget Media vs. Palin: (We’re at 36, as of 9/22)

And there’s one particular match-up that I find extremely interesting:

McCain vs. Palin.

Seems the Republicans combat themselves as much as the other party.
