Issue #1: Is John McCain a pig? Obama thinks so, saying that you can put lipstick on a pig (referring to Palin as his "lipstick"), but it's still a pig.
Issue #2: Is Obama a terrorist sympathizer in disguise? Zillions of "evangelicals" are convinced that he is, since he was raised as a Muslim and is only a convert to Christianity.
Issue #3: Was the Republican convention effectively one big KKK rally? New York Governor David Patterson thinks so. He claims that the phrase "community organizer," which the Warpublicans ridiculed as an inappropriate background for a presidential candidate, is code language for "black."
I think that about covers all the important economic and foreign policy issues of the day.
