the ones who've given McCain a boost in the polls over the last few days. You can't be serious. You can't think Sarah Palin is gonna be good for you, can you? You can't really be so set on seeing a woman president (which is a real possibility) that you're willing to risk everything strong women have really fought for all this time???
You can't see through what the Good Ol' boys are doing, by bringing her on? Can't see how GW and Cheney and McCain are grinning in the background... almost certain they'll get another 8 years to wreak havoc on the poor?
Can't see through the "soccermom" hairdo and glasses, and snide and sarcastic delivery?
I see the media is becoming infatuated with her, too... talking about how even though she's pro-life, she didn't actively seek to overturn Alaska's liberal pro-choice laws when she had the chance. Well, no she didn't... but she DID slash funds to a program geared to helping young unwed mothers...
And you think she's got a Special Needs child and so she'll look out for those of you with kids with special needs? I was blessed with a healthy baby... and I can't know the pain and hardship of what that's like... but I have watched several people in real life struggle with cancer and deafness and autism in their children... and I can tell you that they are careful to attend to the (very great) needs of their children and are not parading them in front of thousands of people at all hours of the night. And most of them took considerable time away from work--sometimes even quitting jobs if they could, to attend to all the needs of their little ones. They certainly weren't traipsing cross-country, leaving their special ones in the care of their seven-or-eight-year old older siblings.
The bottom line is... we're trying to elect a President. And while McCain is old... there's still a damn good chance he'll just continue to be Old. And President.
Just think about it. Do some fact-checking.
Don't vote for McCain just cuz you've been snowed by GunTotinCheerleaderBitchBarbie...
