    Will Obama play something like a dead grandmother on election eve?

    Think he'll try to pull something out of his hat, like Bin Laden out of a hole for McCain?

    Did she? I didn't hear that. I knew she was really sick.

    Too bad; she didn't even get to see the election results. My sympathies to the Obamas.

    Man, the emotions he must be feeling today. To lose someone so central to raising him at a moment when he's poised to achieve the goal of his life. Very sad.

    Semi related: This picture was on the link posted above. Check out the uncanny resemblance between Obama today and his (white) grandfather then.

    What a range of emotions he must be feeling.

    Sounds like she had been sick for a while so maybe this is a bit of a blessing, but the timing is tough since she won't see her grandson likely achieve this monumental accomplishment. On the other hand, she also won't be subject to his estate tax plan since it hasn't been enacted yet.

    R.I.P.

    I agree. While everyone speculates on last minute surprises I highly doubt Obama had anything to do with her death. He doesn't need the sympathy vote with an election eve surprise.

    I don't think anyone's getting your sarcasm.

    And, I don't think Grandma Dunham had an estate in excess of $3.5 million that warrant paying estate taxes under Obama's plan.

    I'm glad someone does. ;) You're probably right about the estate tax.....but I'd say there's still a 70% chance she somehow votes tomorrow.

    In line with:

    "so when did you stop beating your wife?"

    or

    "Lets assume for a second that Obama was a secret Muslim agent....what kind of recourse would we have?"

    About the same chance as McCain hiding Bin Laden in his basement until 11:00 p.m. tonight. In other words, zero.

    Dude, that's totally ridiculous and irrational. Its irresponsible for you to even say stuff like that. seriously.

    if anyone would be doing that it would be Cheney.

    and i was thinking more along the lines of an international incident with Russia. perhaps exploding a small tactical device somewhere like....the Ukraine. They'd go along with it in exchange for entrance into NATO.

    Nice. You're lucky my sarcasm detectors are very sensitive. Some people really believe that stuff though.

    Better questions....from which of McCain's houses would he walk out? How long would it take for Obama to track him down, sit at a table and negotiate with him? Would he get foreclosure assistance from our gov't. after being evicted from his cave?
