You are right Isa, about percentages and the differences between popular and electoral of course.

It's just the general difference between the rest of the world and the US. That people actually vote for a Republican.... no seriously...McCain is in his terminal life phase and Sarah can see Russia from here bedroom.
It's like in the Netherlands, the majority would vote for Geert Wilders.....

There is another possibility - a hostile Isa/Beerman White House takeover. I'd vote for that.

You make airline for cats?

Seriously, air travel for pets still needs a lot of work. :(

So what's the situation like in America? Is the general public more for Obama or McCain? I haven't been following much of the presidential race.

Quoting Wonkerer

Here's what upsets me most about Palin. She thinks that by talking to the public on "our level" (aka using slang and mentioning hockey moms), avoiding answering controversial questions, and portraying herself as an ordinary citizen she can win us over. Yes, all politicians try to play the cards to their advantage, but the way she does it implies that the general American public are uneducated and uniformed. That, in my opinion, is just disgraceful.:(

The problem is that political parties all over the world subscribe to assumed theories on how people vote. Its on all those INTRO to Political Science books:

The Masses are assumed to be stupid. The governments keeps them stupid by feeding theim pop trash on a regular basis. REALITY SHOWS like that "the Bachelor" its a reality show, paradoxically everyone is so fake. Yet it sells as a reality show. Its practically scripted as Mexican soap operas. They even imported UGLY BETTY from Mexico. THE THIRD FORMULA of keeping people stupid or the idea that people are stupid because they eat pop trash.

SO IF SARAH PALIN WINS, its not because they cheated in the counting of the votes. Its just that the Americans are as stupid as the people in the third world who vote for "FRINGE POLITICIANS" actually Sarah is not a fringe politician. She is a Traditional Politician, if you forget her gender or the fact that she just got her passport.

Its the old story of "house wife or widow" assumes power. And so called political analyst from the sacred halls of the academe will be interviewed for their classic analysis, "The people are now DISCONTENTED so they opted for the HOCKEY MOM, since the Harvard guy failed."

Its election time in Bangkok and they are also theatrical with the posters. BUT NOT AS DISGUSTING as the posters in Manila. But what is happening in the US is just so scary... How can the third world have good leaders, if its okay for Americans treat the elections like its a reality show.

The whole Obama vs. Hillary saga was just the start.

whats next? Madonna running for Senator?
you heard it first from me.
