A bit confused…

  1. You could cut half of that out and it sounds like a “you might be a Republican” or “you might be a Redneck” skit.

    I tell ya, I’ve been impressed by the absolute positive BS spin that McCain’s campaign has been able to put on things. Had Barack Obama been white and named “Barry Owens” this race wouldn’t even be close. He’d have a 60-40 lead in the polls and it’d be an electoral landslide come November 4th. It may still end up that way if Barack can get them focused back on the actual issues and problems our nation faces.

  2. Is this all accurate, or is it about like a Michael Moore movie, where only … 2/3 is true? 🙂

    Wow. I agree with the other poster about the spin. It’s diabolical, frankly. And the debate and discussion are simply not happening.

  3. Actually, Ken, there is documentation for all of it.

    From the Arizona Republic, here is news of McCain’s affair…

    “McCain needed a divorce from Carol, his wife of 14 years from whom he was separated. After McCain’s dramatic homecoming from Vietnam, the couple grew apart. Their marriage began disintegrating while McCain was stationed in Jacksonville. McCain has admitted to having extramarital affairs.”

    There is also AP Wire documentation about Palin’s attending 5 colleges in 6 years, and her husband’s DWI.

  4. I was partly joking and partly cautious. However, I’ve been reading a book for my dissertation: “What Happened to the Southern Baptist Convention”, and, after reading about Paul Pressler’s antics, nothing should seem unbelievable anymore. Amazing and painful stuff.

    Your blog post pretty much sums up what we face.

  5. I tend to disagree, but I guess it is where you stand as to how you view your position.

    Entertaining to read though.

    Maybe Hannity, Boortz, or Limbaugh could help with these questions?

  6. The dreaded double comment!

    You know Tom. I gave this some thought since my original post.

    You are more correct than most republicans would like to admit, myself included. I do want to interject that the media isn’t helping the situation. When I watch ANY of the news channels, there is that underlying bias. I feel like I need a shower after the 6:00 news.

    What you name your kids, my neighbors opinion of how exotic your home state is, what color you or your parents are, really don’t concern me as much as…your plans to address the economy, health care, and energy.

    In retrospect, yes I agree with some of your original posting. Not that it matters but your post caused me to renew my awareness of trying to focus more on the issues.

    I voluntarily stand corrected…in some parts 🙂

  7. Thanks for the reconsideration, Ron. I think that’s what has bothered me most about this whole election cycle. It needs to get down to real issues and leave this side business alone.

    I actually like McCain a lot – as a senator. He’s been willing to cross party lines and work for compromises that actually accomplish something. “Compromise” is not a dirty word, and willingness to adjust your agenda for the common good is necessary.

    Unfortunately, as a candidate McCain has tried to pander to the far right of his party, and his selection of Palin as a running mate is a prime example.

    Oh well, I guess we’ll see what happens in November. Now you see why I try to stay away from political topics in this blog!

  8. I guess I just don’t see the bias myself. When i think of how Senator Obama has been treated at times, particularly the harping on Jeremiah Wright (in a way that did NOT help understanding of why Wright is as he is), and I saw stories on McCain accompanying every story on Obama (as an example, when Obama was abroad), bias rings hollow to me.

    An interesting thing about Mrs. Palin’s appointments in Alaska: did you hear who she appointed as Secretary of Agriculture? And WHY? A real estate person who “loves cows” and went to school with Mrs. Palin. Interesting choice. 🙂
