Election News
Tuesday, 2008 October 21 - 11:08 am
Interesting election news over this weekend.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama, and criticized the tone of McCain's campaign. He was also critical of the choice of Sarah Palin as VP. Powell commands a lot of respect among moderate Republicans, so this is a big deal. Of course, what did Rush Limbaugh say about this? That Powell endorsed Obama because of his race. Tell me something, Rush: when a white man endorses McCain, is that also because of race? Or are you saying that black people are more prone to being racist than white people?

Barack Obama's campaign raised $150 million in September. To those that say Obama is "buying" the election, consider this: most of that money comes from grass-roots supporters and small donors. It's not Obama's own money. If the majority of Americans support Obama and are sending money to his campaign, then isn't it right that he should win the election?

Obama's poll lead is up to 8 points. And according to the analysis by 270toWin.com, Obama's chances of winning the election are 99.9%. It's too early to start celebrating, but we can at least be hopeful and guardedly optimistic, yes?

Can someone please tell me why Rush Limbaugh is still allowed to exist? I have seen first hand (unfortunately from visiting my parents) how his rhetoric gets taken for biblical fact by too many people. How does he get away with saying things like that?
