As many of you did this evening I settled in for the second Presidential debate/first town hall meeting. Everything was going along fine. There was the usual points/counter points being made and As Obama was looking young energetic and knowledgeable, McCain seems at times to be teetering (literally) across the stage while trying to engage the audience.
The conversation turned to Energy and McCain in his old time folksy jokeresqe speech began to discuss who voted for a failed energy bill. He then referred to his opponent, a fellow senator as “That One”!
Screech Freeze Put on the Breaks! What did he say? Who the fuck is “That One”! Let me tell you a little something about me. I was raised by my grandmother, back in the days when you could whoop/beat your kids within an inch of their life for displaying behavior you deemed inappropriate. My grandmother was also the main person in me learning to read. Which in turn lead to my love of speaking and writing and all other things literate. She would have never ever (I have proof) allowed me to refer to anyone as “That One”. She would deem it rude and disrespectful and she having grown up in
That One huh???!!! I mean someone explain to me how in this race where we have skittered along the cusp of racism on so many little levels. We have made it thru the Obama the terrorist, Rev. Wright hating America, and Michelle being proud of her country for the first time, terms of elitism, calls that Obama is uppity, lipstick on a pig, what on God’s green earth would allow anything in you to refer to your opponent as “That One.”
Well that is it, I am done! I gave some money to Obama 08 but now I am going out door to door. I am searching the net for blogs supporting McCain and those undecided and I am doing everything possible to make sure that this (possible) racist as far away from the White house as possible.
Also before he ran out of the Town Hall (his strong suit) he refused to shake Obama’s hand when they all met in the middle of the room.
