John McCain, one minute ago...

...Promised to "get this country back on the road back to prosperity and peace."

And, ummm, how'd we get off that road, John? Hello? Hello??


[PS- The fact that the GOP is running on a bastardized change/reform message? Proof that this election, for better or worse, is all about Barack Obama. It's a referendum on him, and that's why this convention has been-- for the most part-- a substance-free personality battle aimed at elevating McCain and Palin, and turning Obama into a punchline. John McCain? He is almost an afterthought in the election, the default for partisan Republicans and those just scared of the thought of a you-know-what in the White House.

It's nice that the Obama camp is trying to stay above the fray and on message, but to quote Marge Simpson, "You don't win friends with salad." Time to get back on offense, starting tomorrow morning. Simply reminding Americans about what the GOP has clearly forgotten this week as they give the same cut-and-paste speeches that could've been heard at the 2000/2004 conventions-- that they have not only been running things for the last 8 years, but also have largely had their way fully on policy matters (like taxes, spending and budget matters, energy/oil, jobs, war, court appointments, etc)-- is a good place to start. Sens. Obama and Biden, game on.

PPS- omg, issues, lolz!]

[UPDATE: At 11pm, McCain implores Americans to "serve a cause greater than yourself." Just don't become a community organizer or a Senator, though. I hear they fucking suck. And no flag pin, sir? For shame. Mercifully... it ends. Nothing between now and the election but a few debates and countless weeks of inane media chatter. Pray we survive the latter.]
