    You should see who likes McCain. And we all know some insane Hilldog supporters. There are some crazy*** people in this world, and they seem to be the ones who vote. Explains a lot actually.

    That's it, Obama's lost my vote.

    How could you not love a face like this?

    Clearly it looks much more like a booby than a pecker.

    So let's do some math here.

    20 seconds a picture == 3 pictures a minute.

    3 pictures a minute == 180 pictures an hour.

    180 pictures an hour == 4320 pictures a day.

    By your mathematics, it would take Barack roughly four days of nonstop picture taking to satisfy all the picture desires of the fans at one of his larger rallies.

    Really? The picture of the loon and the booby didn't make it reek enough of irony? How's this:

    That's it, he's lost my vote...

    etc.

    at the end of the video he finally said ok and gave him the picture, if he had just done that from the start then that would have forgone all that mess

    Maybe he was under heavy fire and couldn't stop.

    He did make a vague reference suggesting he had encountered the man before, and it suggested to me that he interrupted or disrupted an event when Obama was trying to interact with some children. Without knowing what happened at that prior event, it's hard to say whether the reaction was justified.

    Actually, the election-season paranoiac in me half suspects a plant to provoke a newsworthy strong negative reaction, but Hanlon's Razor cuts in favor of him just being a nut. Any famous person accumulates a few.

    yeah the guy was being extremely annoying and rude but its called dealing with the public.
    and if its a plant then obama ought to recognize it and know how to deal with it

    Cheney would have shot his best friend for a chance at a prize like that.

    No worries. Nothing involving a bird called a "booby" should ever be taken seriously.

    Some folks are just really serious in their distaste for He Who Has No Middle Name:

    This IS one of the more entertaining brouhahas of a campaign year. It's a shame there are no serious candidates.

    I don't actually think everything in that list is true, the stuff about Obama not saying his church said something uncontroversial, as otherwise you have to believe a conspiracy theory that the media kept it quiet, especially as the media is apparently the source of the document.

    McCain? McCain? As in, "Who needs a First amendment?" McCain? The guy who reformed campaign finance for Soros' benefit? From his voting record, it's really hard to tell which party he's in.
