    John McCain’s campaign on Thursday accused Barack Obama of injecting racial overtones into the 2008 presidential race when he warned voters that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is going to try to scare them by pointing out differences between the Democrat and “all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

    It is increasingly looking like this campaign will engage in the most grade school debate level of any presidential campaign so far during my lifetime.

    That's fine. It makes me feel that much better and wiser about increasing the time I spend with bluegrass music and decreasing the amount of time that I spend paying attention to this general election presidential campaign. This campaign may end up equalling the 1996 campaign when I watched very little of any of the general election debates and considered it to be the most boring presidential campaign in my lifetime. This year's campaign may end up taking the cake in that regard, too.

    Hey, check out a sampling of Carrie Hassler & Hard Rain's brand new CD, especially the song "Turn the Page" here in the brown box to the right:

    The song "Turn the Page" is the epitomy of modern bluegrass music, imo. :)

    In 1996, you had Clinton, a man of intellect, running against a statesman in Dole.

    This year, you have Paris Hilton running against angry Uncle Chester.

    Dunno if '96 is equal to '08 or not. At least the VP debate could be interesting :laugh:

    I'd pay to see an unofficial 3 way debate with Barr thrown in, or 4 with Nader.

    Isn't Nader running?

    He's always running for something. Or from something :)
