Tour the world in a heavy metal band

The plane can never land

I hope he isn't the pilot.

It's not like it was early in the landing process, either. That plane was minutes form landing - one more minute and it would have been a landed plane.

-1000 Air traffic controllers. You've got a farking presidential candidate landing and you don't make sure that the runway is clear. That's a massive amount of fail.

Who cares? it's just an old man in there. He's not important.

Would Palin have gotten the nod, or would they have outright lost?

They are booing McCain when he talks of Obama. McCain! Be honorable!

He has conceded. Election over.

President Elect Barack Obama.

McCain honorable. Die hard conservatives there booing, not so classy.
 
2008-11-04 11:24:28 PM  
Damn I didn't know that Obama's grandmother actually died.
 
2008-11-04 11:24:32 PM  
One hell of a speech McCain too bad you let the GOP douchebag you around. I wish you luck, and thanks for the last moments of sincerity.

McCain was 100% class.

On the CBC they're talking about how "that was the most gracious speach I've ever hear".

Precursor to a Tony Scott movie of the campaign starring Gene Hackman as McCain and Denzel Washington as Obama?

I voted for Obama in the primaries. I did so, primarily because he didn't seem like a partisan hack. I've been sick of that crap for a long time. I never dreamed he'd win the primary. After he won the primary, I assumed McCain would win the election. Why? Obama's black and has a scary sounding name. I guess people aren't as petty as I thought they were. I'm glad I was wrong.

Good luck Obama, you just accepted a really crappy job that makes the strongest of men grey with in a few years.

That's two sucker punches now since 2002-2004.

No more public cries for rounding up liberals into death camps and exterminating 35% of the U.S. population, but I don't think it's because the right wing stopped hating. They just learned their actual views aren't popular.

Obama is a very mediocre politician, but look on the bright side, Republicans: at least liberals won't publicly advocate your extermination. You might like it better in China, though: they have the permanent conservative authoritarian government you were lusting for.
 
2008-11-05 12:56:42 AM  
I have to say, even though I think McCain was irresponsible in his choice of running mate and put the nation in serious jeopardy if he had won, that was one hell of a classy concession speech. I hope he can live up to it.

Renowned transvestite sexologist: Good luck Obama, you just accepted a really crappy job that makes the strongest of men grey with in a few years.


If the office makes white guys turn gray, Obama's gonna make Tyrese Gibson look like Bryant Gumbell after his two terms are up.

/I hope he nominates Wayne Brady to be the Secretary of Pimpin'

I was on a Southwest flight TOGA (Take Off/Go Around) coming into Chicago Midway once for the exact same reason. We weren't a minute away either; we were probably 10 seconds from touchdown. I could see runway from my window. All of a sudden we sped up and climbed! Very weird experience, especially since I've only flown about a dozen times in my life.

The captain non-chalantly got on the PA after we climbed back out and said the runway wasn't quite cleared yet.
