It's really sick out there and getting sicker. What does the world think of the us at this point in time as one of the people vying to be president can't talk about anything else but "Joe the Plumber". It's really unbelievable. Does John McCain really want to go down in history this way? Does the man have no shame? I guess the answer to that question was apparent when he picked Sarah Palin to be his running mate, but it's still stunning to hear this old fool carry on about Joe the Plumber. On the other hand the eloquent words of Colin Powell in endorsing Barack Obama today was a wonderful example of a thoughtful person making an intelligent decision.
