Long time ago, someone had a potato frozen against umm a rock, and had to chip off pieces of the potato to cook it, hence... chips... but this displeased the queen because they were funny looking so she ordered all the cooks to make them uniform, but left the name the same. Yeah, this is how it happened, really, I was there!


LOL - one thing I will give the Brits, they are a lot more creative in their crisp flavors.

A chip is not a crisp! I think you North Americans refer to chips as French Fries - goodness only knows why, 'though.


Potatoes that have been julienned or "frenched" in the vernacular of the day, and fried -- makes perfect sense. Where did you lot ever come up with chips?

Back to your snack talk.


Your input, as always, unsolicited and useless. :D

Are you kidding me... kettle-cooked chips do not have enough experience to run the country. We need a cracker... ritz perhaps to give us an air of sophistication.

McCain ads? I thought this was going to be about oven chips.....


I'll go ahead and say it . . . WHAT?!?!?!?

I guess it's a Brit thing ;-)

McCain is a Canadian company, if you please.


Excuse me, a Commonwealth thing. ;-)


I think a bag of oven crisps would be the best candidate for the Republicans.

I'm just curious where you're getting this impression? I wish it were true (that the Dems win in a landslide), but I don't know any Democrats who are thinking that way.


I don't either.

The polls I've seen show it still a dead heat. CNN has them even. USA Today I think has Obama ahead.

Gallup, Washinton Post, Rasmussen and AP polls all have Obama leading.


Yeah and it's been that way for a while sans one recent poll (CNN).

If the opposite were true I wonder how classy Obama would be? This is politics. They'll say and use any situation to their advantage and that's what Obama did here with the daughter story. I'll bet you he doesn't remain classy to the end if the polls start showing his lead tumbling.


You've placed it in a nutshell. Say and do whatever to be elected, then wait for the special interest groups to line up for their payback. :/

My wife asked, "Why did McCain pick Palin?" I said, "I dunno...pandering perhaps?" While I value her pro-life stance, is she really qualified to be vice/president? Then again, we've had some real doozies over the last 200 years so if the next president flops, he won't be alone. Unispiring choices, all around.

I keep seeing Reagan mentioned. I've read reports that say he was already suffering from Alzheimer's disease during his second term and quite frankly it was noticeable in some of his speeches near the end.

McCain is 72, just that fact should sway voters to the dems. Personally I would never vote for someone as old as McCain for this job. No problems with his age if he were running for senate, or governor, they're mostly puppet positions anyway.

I wonder . . .

If it was a 17 year old daughter of the Obamas in the same situation, would the so called socail conservatives be as supportive as they are with Palin and her family? Or would we be hearing lectures on how liberalism in American has destroyed morality in our young people?

Just thinking.


I wish I could say they would have dealt with it with teh same class that Obama did, but sadly, I really don't think they would have. :(


Honsety is always nice to see.
