Election Season

Hello everyone!

Lately, I've been busy sprucing up Rob Dow's World somewhat. If you look to your right, you'll see a whole new set of links, unless you're reading this on myspace or somewhere else, in which case you should click here. Anyway, these links are great links to great sites with great things posted by great people, so click on them often (no, I'm not getting paid for this) and enjoy. Then come back and read the rest of this posting. Go ahead, I'll wait for you!

Now that you're back, let's get on with this post! The 2008 presidential election season sure is heating up! Unfortunately, my favorite candidate, Dennis Kucinich, dropped out, er... was forced out of the race due to a complete absence of corporate media coverage on his campaign and due to him being kept out of the Democratic Party debates, despite the fact that he won the same number of delegates in the Iowa caucuses as Rudy Giuliani (0) and more votes than Fred Thompson in New Hampshire (3914 vs. 2,905), both of whom have been allowed in all the Republican debates. But I guess that's what happens to those who speak the truth.

Now I don't know who I'm going to endorse. I like a lot of what John Edwards is saying. The mainstream media is ignoring him, too, which makes me like him even more. I could probably vote for Barack Obama without feeling like a dirty, dirty whore. But I'm not sure about all this talk about reaching out and working with the Republicans. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have been trying that for a year and it's gotten them nowhere. I'm not interested in compromising with people who claim to be moral and then ignore poor people, who trash our environment and economy in the name of private corporate profit, who underfund our infrastructure and educational system while overfunding our military, and who believe the earth was created 5,000-6,000 years ago and that we should teach that in public school science classes.

I wouldn't be caught dead voting for Hillary Clinton or any of the other Republicans. I'd most likely go third party.

Anyway, the candidates are really beginning to pull out all the stops. For instance, take a look at this ad:



If that weren't enough, some of the candidates think they're comedians:



But once the two main candidates are chosen, then we'll have to sit through the conventions:



Just think, only 279 more days to go!
