Obama Speaks at Victory Column, McCain Speaks at Sausage Haus

While Barack Obama was in Berlin giving what could end up being an historic speech, McCain was in Columbus, Ohio speaking at Schmidt’s Sausage Haus in German Village.  Everyday the McCain campaign is becoming more and more of a parody of itself.  I feel sorry for him, he really should have just taken the week off.  First there was the pictures of Obama in a helicopter with Petraus and sinking three pointers, on the same day McCain went golfing with George H.W. Bush.  Obama is in a war zone while McCain is at a country club, this isn’t making Obama look very elitist.  Then yesterday Obama was in Israel making a speech saying that we should never let another holocaust happen, then McCain’s campaign says that Obama has flip-flopped on his position on genocide.  Are you kidding me, is this real?  Then McCain spoke in a grocery store in front of a cheese case.  Why the cheese case?  To show that McCain can handle his lactose?  I suppose that’s a good thing, you don’t want your president negotiating with the Iranians and needing to leave the bargaining table because he stopped at Starbuck’s for a frappucino with extra whip cream.  Or perhaps he did it to show that he gets his daily allowance of calcium and takes his Boniva to prevent osteoperosis.  (On a side note: Sally Field = GILF)  Speaking of types of “ILFs” McCain also helped a MILF with her grocery shopping, because John McCain is a lady’s man.  And now there has been an oil spill in the Mississippi River, something that may make people think about the safety of offshore drilling

I really think the McCain campaign might be on it’s last leg.  They look more desperate for attention by the second.  Do you want people to listen to what you have to say?  Do you want to get some attention?  Try putting forth some news ideas, let us know there is a better way, inspire us with hope, don’t make us timid with fear.  As Barack said today in Berlin, it is up to our generation to face these challenges that we face, terrorism, climate change, rogue nuclear nations, we need to fix these problems to ensure a future for humankind.  We must work together as citizens of the world, not just citizens of nations, these are not problems one country alone can solve, it’s going to take a world-wide effort.  What country is better suited to spearhead this effort than the US?  We are the wealthiest, most powerful nation, ever, we can do this.  But we need the help of our brothers and sisters of all lands to get this done.  Doesn’t it make sense that we should have a president who is respected by the world rather than one that is a joke?
