please, if there is a god, make my vote for Obama COUNT.

i'm so fucking serious and sincere that i make me want to puke.

i'm really serious.

and i'm very frightened of the alternative.

and I genuinely send up my heartfelt prayer. in the hope that it may be answered.

Amen too. But please God, can he stop sending me emails asking for money and telling me it is all in my hands! I live in Belgium!

it's like you hope for the best but expect the worst

Heathcliffscathy Fri 31-Oct-08 22:10:11

but you only expect the worst because you hope hope hope for the best.

if mn had any bollocks at all they'd stickie this thread. they won't of course (will they?)

So God will make up his wavering, indecisive mind on a political issue depending on the prayer vote? Fuck me, Obama is DOOMED!

Can you get it all in your hands?

grin Lucky Michelle!

In a way if he loses he wins. personally. but america will be torn apart.

I love him; he's so articulate and decent, I keep forgetting he's an American politician. Love Michelle Obama, too

expatinscotland Fri 31-Oct-08 22:20:24

k, this sounds shallow, but let's look at a lineup of world leaders.

picture McCain in there. ffs, he looks like he needs a zimmer frame, peeps. he looks like the type of chap you'd help on the bus or hold the door open for.

now picture Obama in there. looking alert, alive, crisp.

i rest my shallow case.

ilovemydog Fri 31-Oct-08 22:22:54

Well, can't do anything else. I've voted, prayed, encouraged others to vote and pray...

May do a rain dance later... smile

RottenOtter Fri 31-Oct-08 22:23:07

Well said sophable

I agree Expat

In the simplest of forms McCain does scare me (even to look at FREAKY)

as for palin - unworldly!

expatinscotland Fri 31-Oct-08 22:24:01

i was sort of hoping hte baby would be here in time for election day so i'd have an excuse for being glued to the TV on election night - oh, can't turn it off, have to marathon feed. i'll just bring him in here.

Do any of you worry about history repeating itself? Thinking back to 1963.

expatinscotland Fri 31-Oct-08 22:27:26

'Do any of you worry about history repeating itself? '

Um, no.

DumbledoresGirl Fri 31-Oct-08 22:27:59
