still totally wonked out today and i must have slept in the wrong position or too hard or something because i woke up with my back bitching up a storm. but i got up, ate a bagel w/ cream cheese and deli turkey slices, grabbed my coffee and some aleve and have migrated back to the bed with the laptop because i couldn't take sitting at my desk or on the couch. Now despite the fact I've had a half-pot of coffee I am soooooo wanting to go back to sleep but i have stuff to do and thankfully only one of those things require me to leave the house (which i'm going to do tomorrow due to the hour).

so i shall now work on a project or two and hopefully not wake up with the word 'toshiba' imprinted on my forehead. ;)

you know we've all heard of some stupid ass, cruel, slanderous and just plain fucking nasty shit to do with this presidential campaign and i for one will be damn glad when it's over but the stupidity of what some of McCain's people still manage to display continues to surprise the hell out of me.

There is a thread over on TF in the off-topic area by one of the members there (LAScaper) and she posted about one of those "robo-calls" and what was said on the recording is sickening:

I just got a "robo" phone call that actually brought me to tears. It was a hateful political message about Obama "on behalf of the RNC and John McCain". Accusing him of working closely with domestic terrorists, planning to divert government funds to radical and extremist Muslim organizations, and secretly promoting legislation intended to promote "darkies" in our government at the expense of white people. The caller warned me that if I didn't want the official meal of the White House to be fried chicken with Koolaid and watermelon, then I need to get out and vote for McCain.

I'm so hurt. This is my country. My home. :'(

This is the reason I don't usually get into politics... because it pisses me the fuck off.

That's disgusting. I can't beleive it. I think that's probably some misguided moron trying to take vote away from McCain by pissing people off. I doubt they're sanctioned, either. But still.... hateful, hurtfull words. No good in it at all.

I can't either, but I also can after the deal with the polling phone calls to Jewish voters.

I swear that most of the people doing this have to be emotionally two.

There's a part of me that's so glad our election is over with - even if it did go tits up (lowest voter turnout in years).

The person that thought up that script is either in his eighties or just stepped out of an old movie. I would say that another possibility is that they're just fucking retarded but I don't want to insult people with those types of mental disabilities.
