Seams like the former fighter pilot would enjoy either the GT or LT.

The other guy may enjoy a Greener bike like a Moped.

There is not an ounce of difference between the two so they will ride identical bikes!

A second party would sure be nice in 2008.

If I recall correctly, you can always write in a candidate come election time. I remember Alfred E Newman and Snoopy getting a few votes several years ago.

I dunno, the way McCain looks I think he'd be more likely to need one of these:



I mean, he's older than Reagan was so how long until he starts forgetting stuff? Besides, I thought you had to be born in the USA to be eligible for the Presidency?

Re: Hey Jay: If McCain and Obama were bikers...

This is easy, they are both politians!

They would go with whatever company would be willing to bribe..err...contribute the most to their campaign!

Or


They would ride whatever the motorcycle the Saudi's would be willing to buy for them! Just like Prez. Georgie did/does.

Hawaii is not actually a state, but rather an occupied country. So...Obama (born in Hawaii) isn't eligible either. At least both of McCain's parents were U.S. citizens.

Re: Hey Jay: If McCain and Obama were bikers...

According to Wikipedia, Hawaii is a State:
The State of Hawaii (pronounced /həˈwaɪiː/ or /həˈwaɪʔiː/; Hawaiian: Mokuʻāina o Hawaiʻi) is a state in the United States, located on an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean southwest of the continental United States, southeast of Japan, and northeast of Australia. The state was admitted to the Union on August 21, 1959.

Re: Hey Jay: If McCain and Obama were bikers...

Just like McCain's citizenship, it all depends on how you split the hair. The argument is that Hawaii was never legally obtained, and it is a occupied sovereign nation.

So that means the 2038 elections will have a candidate born in Iraq?

What is it they say? There's nothing new in the world, other than the history you don't know. I wonder how many of the folks on this board have even heard this story.

How we got Hawaii.

Of course this is all true; it's on the internet!

That pretty much means everything outside Manhattan is occupied territory. The French and Russians just did the initial occupation in the case of the land the US purchased: Louisiana Territory, and Alaska.

Good point, Ken. McSenile is so old that he was born PRIOR to the founding of the country! So technically, he's ineligible.

You would think that after all the money thrown at the Saudi's over the last eight years, they would show a little more gratitude than a motorcycle!

Neither McCain , nor Obama lean left . In retrospect, they are both Christian conservative elites that are well wrapped up in right wing political machine that has been eroding away our civil rights for several years. Neither will be able make any change in the theocratic dictatorship.

Jay,
There will be no tax cuts, just a general selling out of Americas wealth to the top 1% (their buddies). For most of U.S. citizens it will mean a continuation of the past years, regardless of which aristocrat takes the throne after King George has moved on.
