Masterdebater. Haiku.

My next President
Will focus on real life, not
revel in his past.

Disdainful comments
Make you look bitter and old
No hope or promise.

Americans need
hope that the future will change
not more of the same.

    Once again McCain dealt in rhetoric, emotive brow-beating and deceit, while Obama dealt in facts. McCain looked to the past, while Obama hoped for the future.

    It was telling that McCain was unable to look at Obama at all during the debate. Maybe he is starting to feel bad about all the bullshit he is slinging.

    I can’t wait for the Biden/Palin debate either. I think it’s great that you’ve become politically involved considering you didn’t know much about the primary process earlier this year. I’m proud of your growth and we’re lucky that such an intelligent individual as yourself supports the candidate who will provide the most opportunities for all Americans.

    I just registered to vote online. I’ve got my PDF all ready to print (everyone is sleeping so I’ll wait until am) and mail.

    It’s too close to let someone like that win and lead our country.

    And if that happens, I want the right to bitch about it. Voting gives me that right.

    OMG … this could be bad. Really bad.

    I could not stand his arrogant, pretentious, down right rude stance during the entire debate. He wouldn’t acknowledge Obama, and when Obaba addressed him directly he’d look straight ahead and smirk.

    I really, really don’t like that man.

    I went to dinner with HHH, so I missed the whole thing, but from what I gathered on Twitter and the wrap up shows on cnn and other news organizations…….McCain looked like a freak on some sort of medical therapy, not an actual presidential candidate.

    Oh and the Haiku was nice. :clap:

    why are you preaching at me

    that reminds me, i was in Beaufort, SC, walking around looking for any kind of makeshift whatever to buy. there was this guy in a suit with a bible yelling on the street corner.

    JESUS
    IS COMING BACK
    SOON!

    WILL YOU BE READY WHEN
    JESUS
    COMES BACK SOON!

    REVELATIONS TELLS US THAT
    JESUS
    IS COMING BACK SOON!

    i had to wonder, as i roamed the streets of that very weird town, how effective that method of preaching truly is. i mean, do you think we can’t hear you? do you think we have some sort of mental deficit requiring you to literally scream at us instead of say, giving us some fucked up Jack Chick pamphlet? do you even know who Jack Chick is? is this thing on?

    anyway my POINT is, your haikus, it seems to me, are far more effective than some cracker in a honkey suit yelling about

    JESUS
    COMING BACK
    SOON!

    (am high.plz disregard all)

    I *want* to believe.
    No really! I really do!
    Pass the koolaid, please.

    But still… there’s… something.
    a presence I’ve not felt since….
    (yes, that’s from Star Wars)

    Criticize McCain,
    and you fly with the angels.
    Everyone piles on.

    Diss Sarah Palin,
    and you become a Godsend!
    “Pig lipstick,” “and such”

    Of course, many folk…
    Perceive lack of praise as hate.
    Oh, and racist, too.

    But mention “Hussein”
    and you’re branded a hater.
    For saying his name!

    A decorated
    and brave war hero does not
    a President make.

    That said, neither does
    the color of someone’s skin.
    Historic or not.

    Is change needed? YES
    But change for change sake? Madness!
    Pure-bred Malarky.

    I won’t change your mind
    with slogans or catch phrases.
    I’m not trying to.

    I feel core beliefs
    should not be unchangeable
    But unshakable.

    If pithy sayings
    Can influence your ONE vote…
    Don’t bother voting.

    Forget name-calling;
    Filter out all the hatred;
    Check it at the door.

    Fair-minded research
    and resistance to sound bites
    is all that I ask.

    I’m sure there’s a way
    To fuse humor with cuss words
    In this here haiku

    Last time I did that,
    turned out pretty good, methinks.
    Politics suck ass.
