These are a few of the reasons I can't stand John McCain:
1. He uses the F-bomb, the worst word ever and is just a nasty little man with a horrible temper!
2. When it comes to the economy, he's an idiot.
Here's a video of McCain admitting that he doesn't know anything about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqsH7dkFGTo
For those of you who didn't catch the MSNBC debate the other night in Florida, I wish I could have gotten a picture of what McCain's face looked like when asked a complex economy question. Just picture my face if you asked me to describe in detail each step of brain surgery. Then he gave his winning answer, which I will paraphrase: "I don't really know that much about the economy, but I know a lot of people that do and I can hire them." Aahhh, just what Americans want to hear from a potential president at this time of near recession.
3. He's a big, fat, adulterer and I don't have much sympathy for those.
Here's an excerpt from the Washington Monthly and a photo of Mr. McCain with the newer model wife:
McCain was still married and living with his wife in 1979 while, according to The New York Times' Nicholas Kristof, "aggressively courting a 25-year-old woman who was as beautiful as she was rich." McCain divorced his wife, who had raised their three children while he was imprisoned in Vietnam, then launched his political career with his new wife's family money. In 2000, McCain managed to deflect media questioning about his first marriage with a deft admission of responsibility for its failure.
4. He and Hillary are best friends, although at this point I'm not sure which one I like better.

5. He's a part of a Washington Good 'Ol Boys club, and I can't really think of much changing with him as President.
With those reasons alone, I have to wonder what the people of Florida were thinking, hopefully the rest of the country will be a little smarter.

Our hotel was one block from the World Trade Center site and right on the Hudson Bay, it was in the "financial district" for those who know what in the heck that means. On Thursday we got a "hop on, hop off" tour around town and got off at Rockefeller center. It was really cool to see it all in person. We then checked out the NBC experience store and were this close to buying Justin and Amber an authentic Dundie award and/or Dwight bobblehead (to commemorate Halloween), but then decided Amber is way too classy of a designer and it might not end up in a true place of honor. Chandler did however make it out with a "Michael Scott fun run for the cure rabies awareness.....yada, yada, yada" shirt so he was excited. We then took an NBC studios tour and got to go on the set of the Today Show, Nightly News, and see the MSNBC room while they were filming. We toured the rest of town and saw the Manhattan Temple and the buildings where Yoko Ono, Ricky Martin, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton live to name a few. All in all a good afternoon. Then we went to get ready for Phantom of the Opera. We took a taxi to "restaurant row." (apparently not one person in New York can recommend a good place to eat) and then went to Phantom which was amazing!
Friday we woke up very early to try to get tickets for Conan O'Brien and thought we were golden but at the last minute they only took tickets 1-25, we were 29 & 30. We then went to the Today Show and Chan was on TV! It was pretty cool to see it live. We also went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw some cool things, you could be there for a week and not see it all..Saturday we went to Wicked! This is my new favorite musical of all time, I would take the trip to New York again just to see that. We also saw the Empire State Building, Central Park, and ate at Tavern on the Green. The "highlight" of the day besides Wicked was buying some fake Gucci and Prada bags out of the back of a hair salon in China town, it was quite the crazy experience and I felt like I was doing a drug deal.
Sunday we got to come home and we were so excited to see our girls who we missed so much, thanks to everyone who helped out so we could take this little fun trip. We had a great time!

Cousin Marcus, Tanner, and Uncle Eric
As you can see, Mckinley had a great time at the Missionary Bash. Last night after Tanner got some food and walked out of the kitchen she said "have fun on your mission." We will sure miss Uncle Tanner and I'd like to personally thank him for teaching McKinley how to use a whoopee cushion all by herself this weekend and then giving it to her, our house was a crazy place to be today. At least I'll have something to remember you by...haha!
