First there was Sarah Palin with “Joe Sixpack,” an apparently extraordinarily fit ordinary American.

Now it’s John McCain with “Joe the Plumber,” who I guess from what was said is really wealthy, but John McCain really doesn’t want to let you figure that out.

It is absolutely laughable for John McCain to blast Barack Obama for negative campaigning, considering that I have NEVER, NOT ONE TIME seen a positive campaign ad put out by John McCain, and I’ve seen a lot of them. The “negative” ads that Obama puts out criticize McCain’s stances on issues such as healthcare and taxation. The McCain ads consistently assault Obama’s character.

John McCain is a stone-cold hypocrite, and that’s something that any Joe Sixpack should be able to see.

The future is later!

There’s a lot I want to say here. I’m not really sure what it all is. But I’m determined to say it at some point.

One thing I’d really like to do to change the tone here a bit from my gloomy rants of disgust with the political process is writing some more reviews. I haven’t actually gone to see a movie in some time, hence the lack of film reviews, but I’d like to do some other things too. In chief, I plan to at some point in the near future talk about something very important: finding good pizza in Philadelphia. It’s way harder than you’d think. There are only a couple places left that I need to try, and once I’ve done so I will lay it all out for you, my faithful reader(s?), and you will know where to go to find pizza that breaks the with the rich Philadelphia tradition of “cheese” and “sauce” on cardboard — sorry, “crust.”

In the meantime, feel free to read about beer.

This thing I wrote!

I dunno if you guys noticed, but I do write things now and again. This weekend, I attended an Obama rally and the Flyers home opener, and wrote this article about it:

Yeah, the Washington Post (online). I am SO cool.

Roguevick? Maverogue?

With news of seven Palin aides now set to testify against the oh-so-ethical, secessionist, power-abusing governor of Alaska comes this small excerpt of an AP article:

McCain operatives called Monegan a ”rogue” who repeatedly tried to work outside normal channels for requesting money.

Maybe he’s not a rogue… he’s a maverick!

No, seriously, someday I will post real content again.
