Voters Have a Wide Range of Opinions at Detroit's Lodge Elementary School

Barack Obama (Democratic), Sarah Palin and John McCain (Republican) have been spoofed on NBC's Saturday Night Live, which has been gaining more momentum in its 34th season -- even the latters made an apperance on the sketch comedy. Thanks to the start of Tina Fey's impersonation of Palin as well as the success of their primetime specials on the debates, the show continues to hit season-high ratings for the first time in a decade.

U.S. Sen. Carl Levin and State Rep. Jack Hoogendyk square off in their final debate at the DEC

Monday's Detroit Economic Club (DEC) meeting had its own Obama/McCain debate in the form of Michigan U.S. Senator Carl Levin and U.S. Representative Jack Hoogendyk in answering questions of current issues such as energy, education, the declining economy, illegal immigration, Proposal 2, manufacturing, and so on.

McCain Unveils Palin In Sterling Heights!

"It's so good to be here in beautiful Sterling Heights, Michigan," Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska said as she began her first speech in Michigan as a potential VP-to-be at Sterling Heights's Freedom Hill County Park on Friday before a massive and swelling red crowd of enthusiastic, patriotic Michiganders from Macomb County and elsewhere in Metro Detroit.
