Can't argue with that logic

Dammit, they figured us out!

Desperation is an ugly, ugly thing.

Yeah, when you break it down like that, it all becomes clear, doesn't it? I remember just glossing over Obama's talk of destroying jobs during the debates and focusing on the whole hope and change thing, but I guess I would prefer someone who wants to create jobs. Oh well, too late; I already voted!

Dude, they got the headings backwards.

I love the "forward it to five friends" part. Because otherwise the chain mail magic just won't work and you'll wake up with the creepy sad grandpa crawling out of the LCD to steal your soul.

They forgot "Religion: God-fearing Christian vs. Arab Muslim" and "Terrorist?: No vs. Yes"

Why didn't McCain bring out this lovely, lovely chart during the debates or the town hall gathering? They could have had it projected onto the back wall that Brokaw (is he always drunk) was reading. It would be a great power point presention with dancing graphics and fancy transitions.

"My friends, as you shee on thiz chart...."

I like how Obama is specifically going to raise spending by $1 trillion, but McCain is just going to go lower. How much lower? We don't know. Just lower. Trust us.

Weird - that's only the top half of the chart slipped under MY door. The rest went:

Patriotism: War hero and selfless POW \ Hidden Arab terrorist
Faith: Good Christian \ Scary Muslim
Abortion: Children are our future \ Wants to kill all white babies personally

#8 oh god that's good. You could make a really good parody of this thing.

I don't get it. It says that the Obama plan for Iraq is "failure"--shouldn't that be "surrender"? Also, where's the part about Obama's policy to kill everyone's first born? It's like the Republicans just don't want to win anymore.

Republicans really think American citizens are just stupid cows.

Yeah, WE can look at this and laugh.

But guess who got it in her inbox this morning from her Barack-fearing parents with a "Hannah, please remember 9/11!!" message?

This type of shit works for their demographic.

Any connection between reality and that chart is purely coincidental.

Posted by Biyobi Sioux | November 3, 2008 11:03 AM

@16. That is excellent. I definitely should have added "9/11: Remember vs. Forget".

I agree with w7ngman, the comedy potential for this is almost infinite.

God damn it, I KNEW that Obama's "I promise to destroy jobs" pledge was going to backfire on him. What was he thinking? You'll never be able to destroy America so openly, dood.

Wut dos "rettorik" mean? Wut's "byoo-ro-cractic?" I don't trust fancy wurds.

@16 - I'm waiting for it to arrive in my inbox from a friend who was a liberal Democrat until that Muslim guy started getting uppity. She sends me every forward she gets about what an evil, evil man Obama is, and no matter how many times I link her to Snopes or some other site refuting it, she doesn't quite get the message that I don't agree with her viewpoint.

the education line is the best. 'solutions', sheesh. i wish mccain had been asked during a debate "what's your plan for education?" to which he would answer "solutions".

Oh thank goodness. I was gonna vote for Obama, but now this chart has completely changed my mind. Thanks, McCain campaign!!

I can't stop...

Political Hero: Ronald Reagan vs. Karl Marx
Race: White vs. Black, Arab
Wife: Knows her place vs. Hates whitey

Agreed @4, if only I had seen this cogent, concise breakdown of the differences between the two candidates, I NEVER would have voted for Obama in the first place.

Fortunately, I can put my trust in Diebold to correct my now mistakenly entered vote...

yeah, well, here's my version:

McCain/Palin 08:

I hate my job. I'm still going with that one. Bring on the welfare state!

They forgot

McCain/Palin: Swallow
Obama/Biden: Spit

LOL! Thanks, McCain/Palin, for a little much-needed comic relief. I can feel my cortisol levels decreasing with every giggle.

@16 I am sorry Hannah, but the time has come to put Mom and Dad to sleep.

I figure strap some antlers on 'em and send them on a trip to Alaska after Sarah gets sent home.

She will think they are moose and shoot them from a helicopter.

Sarah swears it's painless and quick.

@16

Hannah your parents made ytou a lovely thinking considerate person. I think that the time has come to let Mom & Dad go.

Strap some antlers on them and send them on a trip to Alaska.

When Sarah gets kicked back to Anchorage she might want to do some hunting and she says that's it's a quick and painless death.

Much better than you having to put up with them whining for the next (hopefully 8 years) about how the country would have been better under McCain/Palin despite logic and rational reasoning.

Oops double post.

Better strap some antlers on me too.

The good news: They're voting in MN, which (despite what the polls may say) is not a swing state.

Blue baby, blue.

Great chart! But the reason why it is urgent to vote McCain Palin is that Obama is dangerous. I am so sorry to see America risking everything for this con man.

Do you really believe all the hype about Obama? Do you think he is a human God with unlimited powers? No. He is being supported by powerful and dangerous forces --of which, Al Qaeda is likely the most disturbing. Don't you get a strong sense that even now there is a flavour of totalitarianism in Obama's approach?

Why do you think Obama targets the young people? They are the ones who don't understand what is at stake. They are the ones who for fun or excitement could go for a ride with a friendly stranger, be sexually abused and slain.

Watch it, America. You are about to hand the white house over to Al Qaeda. If you have any sense, vote McCain! Wait and get the facts about Obama. You can't get them from the media. Only the internet will tell you the truth. Is America worth it?

Or is it better to go for a very cool ride with an exciting stranger and if you lose your life in the most horrifying way --well --who cares?, says Obama! Stupid whities! Dupes.

America, if you want to live in Cuba, just move there. Maybe you could trade places with a Cuban. I'm sure every one of them would like to get out of there.

Looking at the comment above mine, I just need to make it clear I was kidding. This chart is ridiculous. I think they cribbed it from my unsuccessful run for class president back in Grade Ten.

It's not all lies!

They totally got the Obama/Biden logo right.

Normally I am against feeding the trolls, but "Only the internet will tell you the truth" had me laughing so hard... Good show, sir, good show.
