When Sen. Barack Obama planted a long wet kiss on the lips of the wife of his running mate during the Democratic National Convention, I was shocked.

I quickly did a Google search and I was relieved to see that I wasn't the only one who was unsettled by the kiss.

When I was a young girl growing up in London, England, etiquette class was a standard part of our school's curriculum. It was sort of like a Finishing school where girls were taught to address boys in the proper manner.

Much giggling and silliness ensued because we were little kids. But at least we knew what was proper and what was expected of us.

I would expect that as adults we should also know what is proper and expected of us in mixed company because not everyone is tolerant of the ways of the new social attitudes.

In my opinion, a man should never kiss another man's wife on the lips in a professional setting unless they're family or swingers.

For Republican presidential candidate John McCain, the rule is simple: Hug your running mate, kiss your wife. It really isn't rocket science.

    Can you blame him? He only met the woman once before he made her his running mate.lol. A hug is alot less ingenuine than a kiss. Hell Mccains whole campaign is ingenuine.lol

    Who the fluck wants to kiss McCORPSE, oops, I mean McCain?

  • http://www.myspace.com/amax79 AKAtastrophy1908

    Ugh Sandra. Tacky!

    Did you also see McCain constantly watching his running mate's ass (so much so until the camera had to zoom in on her so it wouldn't be so obvious) during her first public appearance with him? Were you "shocked" by that or is it just all things Obama that make you gag?

    You can keep hating and trying to belittle what Obama is trying to accomplish. It's cool. By now, we (your loyal readers)understand how you roll- especially toward black men trying to do it big! You portray them aas "gay", "adulterers", and your new low is now "swingers" - with NO evidence of course!

    I do take you for an intelligent woman though- and intelligent people should know that different regions/cultures do things differently!

    Besides, McCain (the real adulterer) doesn't even kiss his wife on the lips so go figure...that's your boy though! I guess the GOP is the party of ethics, morals and etiquette.

    Yeah right!

    And what the fluck does McCorpse's wife have on in that picture?

    She looks like crudités- Bell pepper and slices carrots!
    Booo! :o You can't do Michelle Obama! Step your gear game up! I'm sure you can find a nice outfit at the funeral home you found your husband in!

    can't you get the worms from old men..........just playin ya'll for those who never heard that before..

  • LADYTEA

    Sandra has issues now with Barack.. why all the sarcasim directed towards this man.. I feel that if Michelle is not saying anything about her Husband kissing his running mates wife, than you shouldn't have a problem with it either... Stop hating and congratulate all things positive this man stands for..

  • brenden

    can’t you get the worms from old men

    LOLOLOL. My kuntry a*s uncle used to say stuff like that about dating older women. He thought he was a player, a pimp, what ever you want to call it. Said he would do every thing to please those women just short of sexing them. He didn't want to get worms.lol. Too funny. And when I say old I mean old. He'd find widows that were living off what their husbands left them and what not. May he rip...He was truly a character.

  • alove

    Sandra,

    This picture is made to appear as something it is not. Why are you such an Obama hater? You want your blog to be mentioned on CNN again when you spoke disrepectful of the kids.

  • suga_stix

    Seriously Sandra, I'm starting to have second thoughts about even visiting your blog because you're obvious self-hate is getting out of control. You have criticized Bossip to no end for what you have viewed as their "disrespectful" comments towards famous blacks,but you're no better. No one says that you have to vote for Obama just because you're black, but if you have a problem with him you need more valid reasons than these stupid childish posts you continue to put up. It must suck to be a crab in a bucket.

  • suga_stix

    Oh, and the site I was referring to rhymes with Tossip since the word is banned here :-)
