If Opie, Andy and the Fonz think Obama's ok, well ...

A very funny video posted by Ron Howard (with a little help from some friends) on Funny or Die. This is even better than Paris Hilton's efforts.

McCain and Palin - dumb and dumber

What the hell is going on here? Isn't a presidential campaign supposed to show how intelligent you are and your readiness to lead the nation? It certainly isn't doing that for John McCain, who couldn't have looked dumber if he tried.
First, there were the contradictory mudballs slung at Barack Obama. First, he's a Muslim. Then a terrorist. Then a socialist. No wonder people were getting mad about Obama at McCain's rallies. They didn't know which way McCain was heading with his rhetoric!
And how does it feel when David Letterman, of all people, quizzes you harder than the press?
Then there's Sarah Palin, who makes Dan Quayle look like a Rhodes scholar. Sure, John, being in a beauty pageant and thinking foreign experience is living next door to a country is brilliant, isn't it?
Gotta hand it to "Saturday Night Live," though. They really pulled the wool over Palin's eyes. If she thought she was going to go there for humor, she found out what they really did was make her look stupid. You know, like the fat guy with the pocket protector and the extra thick glasses. That's the way Palin looked on that show.
Thank goodness, it'll all be over soon. Just think: We'll either have a smart president or dumb and dumber.
Let's hope America isn't dumber than John and Sara.

Some observations with about 30 days to go ...

-- John McCain seems to have gotten the message and is toning the hateful rhetoric down, but too many Americans, I think, are disgusted by all this and will vote for Obama no matter what.

-- We know someone who was doing some phone bank work for Obama yesterday. One lady, age 92, said she wouldn't be voting because she was blind. They asked who she would vote for if she could. Her answer: "the white guy." No matter how much the polls show Obama in the lead, we don't know how this racial element will play out. This is new ground we're treading. The next couple of weeks will be quite interesting. If Obama is smart -- and he is -- he won't take anything for granted.

-- And we wish people would stop with all the nonsense about being crticial of the Clintons not getting more involved with the campaign until now. Understand this: Bill and Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail now has a bigger impact than it would have if they'd had been there all along. The smart folks at the Obama campaign know that. And don't think this wasn't planned.
