Relax, Cub fans and Obama supporters, all is not lost. The Cubs have less time than Obama but they hold the biggest lead of any team besides the L.A. Angels (4.5), and their magic number is 15. So just win, baby. Win!

As for Obama, I do find it odd that after he spent the past year running on the “Change” theme, it is now McCain who is calling for change, despite his own party’s eight-year domination of Washington. Usually it is the party out of favor that is calling for change, yeah? Are people that dumb to fall for it? Yeah, I know, stupid question. Of course they are.

But hey, how can you tell a 70’s porno from the 2008 Republican National Convention?

The amount of Bush in it.

Thanks, I made that one up myself.

So liberal America, let’s celebrate our firm grasp of reality (when we’re not drinking or taking any illicit drugs). The GOP is running on bio, not issues, and ultimately lack the substance to lead. Obama’s got the bio and the issues, and that has to count for something, for once. It HAS to, or we’re all doomed.

Why liberals don’t stand up to this garbage, I don’t know. Without the extraordinary contribution of liberals — from the mightiest presidents to the most unheralded protesters and organizers — the United States would be a much, much worse place than it is today.
