On this date in the U.S. Presidential race, absolutely NOTHING IMPORTANT happened. At least not that MeFites got to discuss.

How many people have tried to make a decent FPP out of this before today. Raise your hands.

I'm sure more time will be spent on crafting it than was spent on evaluating the importance of discussing McCain's epic gaff and the way the Obama campaign may have put a reporter up to posing the question! (Now the deletion notice will say NOTHING!)

The only significant date is Nov. 4th.

"This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years -- in prison," [McCain] spokesman Brian Rogers told the Washington Post.

I lost track of how many houses I own a long time ago.

Except they're all made out of Legos.

McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said in response: "Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses?

I smell fear.

I've got plenty of reasons not to vote for McCain, this isn't even on my radar. Also, ?

pretty douchey way to post this. i don't like the idea of intentionally posting something in a weak manner that you know will get deleted.

It is a post that, based upon the fact that any moron can see it is a huge story and would be fodder for epic banter by MeFites and you know it has been submitted a hundred different ways and the mods have deleted them all. I'm pointing that out. And expecting them to stay consistent and delete this one. But I'd love to have seen the discussion that should have been here and running several hours now, if some mod had exercised their little grey cells.

"salivating" indeed.

Maybe you should just explain to us why this is important, spock. We're not all stupid. Some of us will understand!

This will...well, you know.

It's perhaps the most Meta post EVAR.

Wow. Politics really does make people crazy stupid.

I'm not sure if the original poster calls it meta it needfully follows that it is. But, like, IDIC, dude.

For the record, making a weak post while intentionally being an asshole about it is, in fact, not endearing.
