Calling all undecided voters

If you truly don't know, today, for whom to cast that vote, I submit to you that you could abide by the Brady Bunch test. Of course everything in life hearkens back to an episode of The Brady Bunch. In this case we consider Marcia and Greg, who both had a claim to the attic bedroom. The fight over it pitted the two factions (boys and girls) against each other and, yes, they did resort to some underhanded trickery trying to get their candidate to win. In the end, of course wise Mike Brady had the answer (duh, as he always does!) and the bedroom went to Greg because he was a year older and -- this is key -- Marcia could have the bedroom when Greg goes off to college.

This clearly applies to our current situation. McCain should have become the president in 2000. Now, he will not get another chance. Whereas Obama, who should have waited until 2012, WILL in fact have another chance. So, McCain should get the White House first, and then Obama can have it later.

As long as you're willing to share...and what a good speech he gave (J.McC.); wish he had spoken that way all through the campaign season.

Life is not a Brady Bunch Episode, so sorry... Get real, Linda, I am sorry YOUR candidate lost but get over it...

But what if life really IS a Brady Bunch episode? Hmmm, I suppose that's better than life being an X-Files episode.

Sigh. My sardonic wit, foiled again...

This last one was probably the lamest comment I've seen yet. And I've been seeing lame comments from the beginning.

Almost as lame as any anonymous commenters.

How can you go from supporting Hillary Clinton to John McCain and (barf) Sarah Palin? She is an outrage and he a war monger. I thought you were a feminist? Come back to the left, the water's warm!

Besides the fact that I reject your false "left/right" dichotomy, seeing as I loathe the two-party system, I must say that Sarah Palin is a red herring. (Both ways.)

I got really tired this year of the Democrats using abortion as a wedge issue. They used that against the Republicans for so long, and then became just like the Repubs. What a shocker.

I wish abortion was not part of the politcal forum. There are so many other things that I'm worried about, that issue has slipped to eight or nine down the list. I want the war to stop and a long term, rational plan to turn our economy around. Those issues must be at the forefront of this administrations "to do" list!
