Obama's Brother George, McCain's Scare

. Saturday, August 23

What a soap opera. Now that Obama 'officially' announced his VP choice, albeit 12 hours or so after it was leaked by an 'unnamed official,' the news has latched onto yet another piece of gossip and has proven it true.  Meet George Obama, Barak's half-brother, who lives in a  Nairobi slum and earns one dollar a day. Barak's book, "Dreams for my Father," is popular in Narobi, and George finds his brother an inspiration: "Because he wants to be [president]," he said. "I think in life, what you want is what you are supposed to get." (Well hell, if it's that easy, then I want to be president. Who knows; I might even be good at it.) Two months left before the circus ends, and that is more than enough time for more gossip to surface.

In other news, an Arapahoe County, Colorado inmate, Marc Harold Ramsey, sent John McCain's Denver campaign office a threatening letter that said, "Senator McCain, If you are reading this then you are already DEAD! Unless of course you can't or don't breathe." The envelope included a white, powdery substance that turned out to be harmless. Still awaiting his court date for charges of menacing, assault, contempt and fugitive from justice, Ramsey now faces 5 years in a federal prison and a $250,000 fine. This just added another ring to the circus.

"what you want is what you are supposed to get"

This is the kind of simplistic ideology that scares me. Too many people out there now that that just because they want something they are entitled to it.

Yes, I agree Pam. I get the sense that Barak feels the same way, as if he's entitled to the presidency whether he is qualified and capable or not.
