McCainiacs, or live-action Flanders kids?

Oh the humanity! Please please think of the children!

Ironic and/or sadistic requests should not be gratified.

@5 - I'm embarrassed because I got that reference. I guess since the Olsen twins there's been no escaping the horror that is singing blonde twin little girls.

Anyway, isn't it obvious, even to children, that you shouldn't emphasize that McCain's VP's name rhymes with "failin'"? Nobody in the Obama camp uses the Osama rhyme...

I only made it 2 seconds into that before the wine started creeping back up.

Have you seen this one yet? It's almost as annoying, but in a funny way, not a "holy shit, those are future voters" way.

Damnit white people... srsly wtf?

This reminds me of when I was in the 4th grade (1984) and my best friend was a die-hard democrat. A fellow 4th grader told her that her candidate wanted to kill babies. My friend explained to this 10-year-old republican that she was ignorant, and did she even know what she meant by "killing babies"? She explained that the issue is abortion, which involves a fetus, not a baby, and that women should have control over their own bodies. I was impressed and didn't know what either of them were talking about.

Don't be fooled by a rich academic brat who was raised by a bank vice president and sent to private schools in Hawaii. Barry is laughing all all the "stupid people" who are dumb enough to vote for him and keep his rich friends in power.

Vote middle class.
Vote McCain. Vote Palin.
Vote your wallet.

I do.

"We won't have another ground zero."

Yeah, because that totally happened when a Democrat was in office.

@15: What a great reference. That is by far my favorite crappy submarine movie.

Bah. Nothing tops The McCain Girls singing "It's Raining McCain."

no, no, that which is beyond your control should make you feel no worse than you already do, you know whom i'm speaking too, and why?

So.... you're saying someone has been able to sit thru and watch that whole thing? If so they're a brave hero and are qualified to be prez-o-dent too.

Posted by Fred34 | October 31, 2008 5:42 AM

I sat through the whole thing, but switched off mentally after the first scene. Can I be a VP now?

Posted by M'thew | October 31, 2008 6:39 AM

Poor things. I thought I had it tough because my high school yearbook inaccurately quoted me as saying I'm a Republican, but this will live forever.

Posted by Catalina Vel-DuRay | October 31, 2008 6:51 AM

It only clocked in at 1:35??

Jesus, I thought it would NEVER end!

Get out there and VOTE, people!

Did this number really have to be acapella?

Barack Obama's middle name is Hussein. Saddam Hussein was an evil, evil man who supported terrorism. Therefore, Barack Obama is a terrorist. Q.E.D., bitches!

Posted by John Bailo | October 31, 2008 8:32 AM

John, you're so cute. You make me giggle.

29 middle name is Jean.
And Jean Stapleton played Archie Bunker's wife so therefore I must be a comedian on a sitcom!
Yeah for me!

As a New Yorker, I became physically ill when they brought up the 9/11 attacks. Not because any reference to the act itself still instills a deep sense of fear and loss - though it does - but because I am sickened by the the fact that these children from the middle of nowhere, who have never experienced and - I pray - can never truly understand what it's like to be under attack and watch your city crumble, are co-opting that imagery with upbeat bubblegum stylings to try and send a criminal maniac into the White House. It's repulsive.

The end times are nigh.
