ZANESVILLE, Ohio (CNN) – In the final days of a presidential campaign, nothing is left to chance. With so much planning and set-up going into every stop, no detail is too small. So everything runs with clockwork precision, right? Uh, yeah, sure. But when events veer slightly off course, the candidates are quick to point some playfully partisan fingers.
In Reno on Saturday, Barack Obama’s microphone died mid-sentence during a rally. He walked the stage and shook hands for the three minutes while crews worked on the problem. When the sound came back, he told the crowd as he resumed, “Hello, hello, hello! I told you folks are having trouble making their electricity bills. Either that or somebody from the McCain campaign kicked our plug out of the socket. That was just a joke, guys, there’s no evidence of foul play. Now, where was I?”
Sunday, the lights went out over the stage during the introductions to John McCain at a high school in Zanesville, Ohio, Senator Lindsey Graham was left speaking in the shadows, filling until the problem was fixed so McCain could take the stage. To laughter, McCain said as he began, “Thank you for the warm welcome. I think the lighting is brought to you courtesy of the Democratic National Committee.”
At least we think they’re being playful.
yah Scott L keep on dreamin!
no experience. nobama. obama has less experience than any candidate in the history of our country. he has bad judgement, dangerous ideas and is dangerously naive about the world. say good bye to israel if obama is elected.
and the biggest "glitch" of the election is Troopergate Palin.... what a LOSER
BAROCK THE VOTE!!!!!! LANDSLIDE!!!!!!!! GET OUTTA THE WAY MCLOSERS!
at this point if you cant laugh you'll cry
OBAMA is going to WIN HUGE next Tuesday, with all the lies, name calling,negative ads and attacts from McCain that VP, we could never trust the Rupublicans, McCain and Bush made this MESS in our America, we need a leader who understand what we are going through, that person is OBAMA, so go out all Obama supporters and VOTE early to Change our great America.
If you can vote early DO IT NOW.
Don't Wait and get stuck in long lines.
MAKE SURE YOUR VOTE GETS COUNTED
And check to make sure the machine shows that you voted for the person you WANT. There are reports of machines that vote for McCain even when you voted for Obama
I LOVE IT, THEY ARE BOTH FUNY BUT MY FRIENDS, MAKE SURE YOU GO OUT AND VOTE EARLY FOR OBAMA, OKAY MY FRIENDS!
SCOTT THE PLUMBER, WHAT WORLD ARE YOIU LIVING IN, MY FRIEND!!
Barack Obama's background, ideology, and agenda are not distractions. Why should it be controversial to investigate them? In a democracy, shouldn't it be dangerous not to?
Maybe it was God's way of telling us these candidates aren't very good.
I love the symbolism of these events:
Obama – You don't need to do anymore talking. Go ahead and take your victory lap.
McCain – Lights out for you! It's over.
scott L and which planet did you come from because it for sure wasnt this one and you are reading some other strange and different polls.
Funny to see that while both were accusing the other, only Obama mentioned it was only a joke while McC uses even this to stir some bitterness.
Its all over for McCain & Co.
A return to humor would be welcome after all the debris from the Hate Talk Express the past month...
scott please..... barack will win big, and it will be over before the old man and his joke of a running mate even realizes it.
LIGHTS OUT McCAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!
McCain is going to lose HUGE next Tuesday.
"Tax and spend liberal... Socialist! Socialist!... Terrorist!"
Can McCain not come up with anything tangible in his campaign?
The country is in this mess because of NO TAX AND SPEND Conservatives! A few extra bucks on my taxes won't be missed and will go to the greater good.
A civilization that lost its sense of humor is not worth saving.
Obama says "someone from the "McCain campaign" kicked our plug out of the socket, not blaming Republicans as a whole. McCain on the other hand places blame on all democrats for the power failure and that isn't the way to get any democrats on his team. Saying the right things at the right time is why Obama is so favorable over McCain.
I hope that the CNN story on legitimate voters being purged from the voting registration records gets as much air time and law enforcement attention as has the ACORN story.
All bigots are going to lose big tuesday,I cant wait.
Too bad the lights didn't stay off on him. McCain in a liar and a fraud.
Unplugging McCain may help him!
