Let's think about the pictures that we saw of McCain-Palin rallies. Contrast that with the rallies of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The Republican party is stuck in a land of TV Land - 'Leave It To Beaver,' 'Father Knows Best,' 'Howdy Doody.'

How does Mr. Spike "the black genius" Lee explain California's Prop. 8?

It's true. The majority is a group of scared old white guys who waive around their Obama monkey dolls and scream Ayers!

That's why they lost, they are completely out of touch with America.

They can stay in the "real" America while the rest of us move forward and they become trivia questions.

Interesting point. Demographically, the US is become decidedly non-white, some say majority minority mid-way this century.

I think the country realized McCain's priorities when they found out he had ditched an injured wife for a zillionair babe. Way to get into the class with the real money.

Too bad he did not show as much decency during the campaign as he did during the concession speech. Add that to picking a VP that could have actually been able to be president and McCain might have won.

I'm glad he didn't.

Hmm. The Republicans gave you the first black Secretary of State. There were also more minorities in the Bush cabinet than the Clinton cabinet. He also has more than tripled economic and developmental aid to Africa since taking office.
