Who to vote for?

I have not blogged much on the election because I doubt I can say anything you haven't already heard. I have gathered here reasons for/against the candidates that you might not have heard. They are NOT mine- they are things I've heard or read. If 1/2 of these comments are new to 1/2 of my readers, I'll be happy.

REASONS TO VOTE FOR OBAMA OR AGAINST MCCAIN
  1. I've always wanted a Prez younger than me!
  2. Joe Biden is one of the few non-millionaires in the Senate. Hence he understands the working man.
  3. If Obama wins then Hillary probably won't be able to run for 8 years. (If McCain wins she can run in 4 years.)
  4. In the first debate Obama showed that he was willing to agree with McCain on some things. McCain did not.
  5. McCain does not know how to use email.
  6. I have two bets that Obama will win. (One is with an African-American who thinks the country will never elect an African-American Prez. She hopes she is wrong and will gladly lose the bet.)
  7. The McCain-Palin campaign spent $150,000 on clothes for Sarah Palin. This shows she has no understanding of economics.
REASONS TO VOTE FOR MCCAIN OR AGAINST OBAMA
  1. I've always wanted a Prez older than my grandparents!
  2. Joe Biden is one of the few non-millionaires in the Senate and hence has no understanding of Economics.
  3. (Someone at my church told me this.) I live in the same Condo as John McCain. He voted for me for President of the Condo Association, so I feel I owe it to him to vote for him for President of America.
  4. Sarah Palin is a hockey mom with 5 kids and a job. Hence she understands the working mom.
  5. Obama is a Muslim who has been attending Reverend Wrights Christian Church for 20 years. (NOTE- 10% of Americans things Obama is Muslim. 1% think he is Jewish.)
  6. An intelligent man who I trust agrees with McCain on many things. That man: Barak Obama (First Debate and a few other things).
  7. The Republicans created the mess we're in now, make them clean it up.
REASONS TO VOTE AGAINST BOTH OF THEM
  1. I'm from a non-swing state so my vote does not matter.
  2. The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live, and The Capitol Steps won't have much to work with. Obama, McCain, and Biden just aren't that funny. Palin makes political satire redunant. (Alaska is next to Russia and therefore she has Foreign Policy Experience.- is that John McCain? Jon Stewart? John McCain on Jon Stewart's show?)
  3. Who do the Assoc of American Political Satirists endorse? Having read this I still can't tell.

  2. Here a new one I recently heard: if you ever want Hillary for president, then vote McCain: the next 4 years are going to suck no matter who is president, and then in 4 years voters will be looking to change parties.

    He's half white so this comment does not make sense. If anything, he is in a position to better understand both black and white viewpoints. This gives him an advantage.

  4. A few more:
    * Vote for Obama because, as the friend of a terrorist, he is better prepared to fight the war on terror.
    * Vote for McCain because, if Obama keeps raising money (for 2012), he'll have enough to fund the bailout and pay down the national debt.
    * Vote for McCain because he lived through (the tail end of) the depression.
    * Vote for Bob Barr because you can't bring yourself to vote for someone left-handed.
