    thinking about McCain (probably doesn't remember how old 72 is :) but his choice of Palin sealed the deal. She's solid for Obama now.

    And remember... if you don't like the news, go out and make some of your own.

      are still sending around the anti-Obama hate emails. It makes me very upset to get this crap they send around and it has caused a huge rift in the family, which is very upsetting.  They claim they are not being antagonist when they send around the spew that they pass off as truth.  When I correct the record or point out snopes the rest of the family pounces on me for upsetting the old men.  I think that is simply absurd to not hold them accountable just because of their age.  They know damm well what they are sending and they don't care if it is not true.  If it confirms their cast in stone ideology they seem to think truth does not matter.  The most common family response it "well both sides do it" and don't be so sensitive.  
      I just want this election over and my family back.  Actually, I don't know if my family will ever speak to me again...that is how divisive this election has become.
