Some amusing things from the intro:

Quote:
The computer systems of both the Obama and McCain campaigns were victims of a sophisticated cyberattack by an unknown "foreign entity" ... Obama technical experts later speculated that the hackers were Russian or Chinese.

Quote:
Palin launched her attack on Obama's association with William Ayers, the former Weather Underground bomber, before the campaign had finalized a plan to raise the issue.

Quote:
One night, Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter went to her [Palin's] hotel room to brief her. After a minute, Palin sailed into the room wearing nothing but a towel, with another on her wet hair.

Quote:
Obama was never inclined to choose Sen. Hillary Clinton as his running mate, not so much because she had been his sometime bitter rival on the campaign trail, but because of her husband.

Quote:
On the Sunday night before the last debate, McCain's core group of advisers...met to decide whether to tell McCain that the race was effectively over, that he no longer had a chance to win.

Quote:
...when Brian Williams is asking me [Obama] about what's a personal thing that you've done [that's green], ... what I'm thinking in my head is, 'Well, the truth is, Brian, we can't solve global warming because I f---ing changed light bulbs in my house. It's because of something collective'."

Apparently there is a lot of scapegoating within the Republican party right now.

Also, this woman is extremely angry.

Look, she's pregnant.

Also, watch Fox News... they're blaming Democrats/Liberals over there.

Also, to be fair, they are Wasilla hillbillies.
