Scared Shiteless

Remember how great the two airline bailouts have worked for consumers over the past 7 years....

And are we really going to let BushCo come up with a plan to bailout Wall Street?

Hell no to anything they offer.

And this should scare the crap out of you....

McCain: We should deregulate health insurance like we deregulated Wall Street.:

"Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation."

One is a leader with a vision, the other a crazy old man willing to say anything.

The Contrast: Barack Obama vs. John McCain - The Jed Report:

"The responses of Barack Obama and John McCain to the economic crisis today tells you all you need to know about the choice in this election.

One the one hand, in Barack Obama we've got a statesman who wants to work together to get things done for all Americans. On the other hand, in John McCain we've got a yipping little dog (apologies to canine lovers everywhere) who will tear anything down to get ahead.

Here's a short video I put together to illustrate the contrast:"

"Gran-Gran keeps a box of spiders....."

How scary is this spider? That may depend on your politics:

"In the second test, the volunteers were subjected to a loud, unexpected noise, with scientists measuring the involuntary blinking that followed. A strong startle response is indicative of heightened fear and arousal. The results, which are published in the journal Science, revealed significant differences in both responses, which corresponded with people’s political views. Those with “markedly lower physical sensitivity to sudden noises and threatening visual images” tended to support liberal positions, while those with strong responses tended to be more conservative.

This would fit with the hypothesis that people who have more fearful responses to perceived threats are more likely to be conservative, while those who have weaker responses develop more liberal views."


Are you an elitist? / 18 revealing ways to know for sure:

"6. The impressive dimensions of the strap-on system in your dresser would make your average Alaskan redneck hockey player scream in horror even as it openly titillated a dozen Republican senators from Colorado Springs to Idaho, though it would probably still get you arrested in Alabama.

7. You know what a strap-on is."
