................Woodruff then pressed McCain on his running mate’s criticisms and sharp tone of Obama’s experience as a community organizer.

“First of all, this is a tough business,” McCain said, before defending his vice presidential pick.

“Look, Gov. Palin was responding to the criticism of her inexperience and her job as a mayor in a small town. That's what she was responding to. Of course, I respect community organizers.”

McCain continued, “I admire mayors. Listen, mayors have the toughest job, I think, in America. It's easy for me to go to Washington and, frankly, be somewhat divorced from the day-to-day challenges people have.”

Obama, when asked about the criticisms of his early community organizing days, was on the defense, saying he was surprised that his work was “belittled,” but praised Palin for her work as a mayor.

“Mayors have some of the toughest jobs in the country, because that's where the rubber hits the road. We yak in the Senate. They actually have to fill potholes and trim trees and make sure the garbage is taken away.”

McCain praised Obama throughout the forum, saying he would work with him no matter what happens in November.

“Would you perhaps ask Sen. Obama to be a member of your Cabinet for national service?” moderator Rick Stengel asked.

“Yes,” McCain said with a laugh. “You know, every time we see a problem, we sort of -- let's create another Cabinet post. Now, we have got so many members of the Cabinet, that the Cabinet never meets, as you well know. So, I'd rather see a powerful, influential, outstanding person sitting in that office who I could literally deal with every day.”

Obama –- when asked if he would accept McCain’s offer –- said not just yet.

“We’ve got a little work to do before we get to that point,” Obama said, laughing.

The day after 9/11, as part of its "get tough" makeover, the Obama campaign is mocking John McCain for not using a computer, without caring why he doesn't use a computer. From the AP story about the computer illiterate ad:

" Our economy wouldn't survive without the Internet, and cyber-security continues to represent one our most serious national security threats," [Obama spokesman Dan] Pfeiffer said. "It's extraordinary that someone who wants to be our president and our commander in chief doesn't know how to send an e-mail."

Well, I guess it depends on what you mean by "extraordinary." The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000):

McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain's encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He's an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can't raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.

article in Slate in 2000:

" Six months ago, no one would have pegged McCain as the most cybersavvy of this year's crop of candidates. At 63, he is the oldest of the bunch and because of his war injuries, he is limited in his ability to wield a keyboard."

John McCain had this to say about Mayors and Governors in the primaries:

quote:
"I have had a strong and a long relationship on national security, I've been involved in every national crisis that this nation has faced since Beirut, I understand the issues, I understand and appreciate the enormity of the challenge we face from radical Islamic extremism," the Senator declared. "I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training. I wasn't a mayor for a short period of time. I wasn't a governor for a short period of time."

We should discuss her "accomplishments" as part time mayor of Tiny-town. Their debt went through the roof, she was at the helm and made the decision to charge rape victims for the forensic testing "to save taxpayers money" even though its a drop in the bucket to any municipality. It took a state law to stop the practice of which, Wasila was the only town doing this in the entire state. Then we have the wonderful concept of asking how to go about banning books, not once but several times.

Maybe Derek, in his infinite wisdom and worship of Caribou Barbie, can defend these accomplishments.

Actually, AG isnt really specifically about music, like the other areas. Its description reads "Talk about life, love, and oh yeah, keep some relationship to the Allman Brothers Band too!"

I was gone most of the day today working and when I got home I had a crapload of video to convert and just was able to visit here not too long ago. Ive been tied up addressing your Tolstoy of lies in that other thread. Do you ever get tired of being so full of shiat and lying? I mean, holy crap...where is your integrity? Do you have any honor at all? Why would you want to throw away the tiny shred of credibility that you might have once had here? Please explain.
