I Love People

But I hate John McCain. Haha. Ok. Just kidding. 😉

In the midst of my “despair blogging” re: the GOP nomination, I stumbled upon this page over at Wikipedia.

What is going on there? Well, it’s a discussion between several people (who have never met) working together to put together an animation of the expansion and decline of the Roman Empire.

How cool is that?

Internet users around the world who are donating time, energy, and tech skills, to further the spread of knowledge (no matter how important or obscure!). It’s pretty inspiring when you think about it.

    That’s pretty sweet.

    When are you guys going to put up the animation of the routes for the Straight Talk Express?

    doug, could you get on that request? perhaps enlist a team of Internet users around the world to donate time, energy, and tech skills to further the spread of knowledge of the meandering train of infidelity, bitterness, and liberal bilge that is the mccain campaign.

    Da peeps ask…and Ali-G delivers. Booyakasha!

    Da interwebs be alive wit John McCain info.

    Infidelity.

    McCain was still married and living with his wife in 1979 while, according to The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof, “aggressively courting a 25-year-old woman who was as beautiful as she was rich.” McCain divorced his wife, who had raised their three children while he was imprisoned in Vietnam, then launched his political career with his new wife’s family money.

    Bitterness.

    Nor will Senator Coryn (R-Texas) ever forget when John McCain screamed “F-You” at him in a Senate committee room, when he had the audacity to disagree with McCain on immigration last spring. Nor would any of the other colleagues and staffers who have gotten this treatment from him.

    Nor will I ever forget being called a racist by McCain and his sidekick Lindsey Graham, when they both demonized everyone who disagreed with them on illegal immigration. There are many other things I won’t forget. The list is long.

    Liberal bilge. (go watch the video)
