Some tightening race

Television networks now report that McCain is marginally ahead of Obama in the polls thanks to the bump he got from nominating Lady Sarah to be his veep.

Whether you're a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, when visiting the polls this November, remember this: a vote for McCain/Palin is a vote for the lunatic fringe of the Republican Party.

When John McCain speaks about being the party that brings change, think "back to the future" because that's the kind of change he has in mind; think Cold War, then fast forward-- think 1994---the Republican Revolution; think Newt Gingrich, Dan Quayle, and all things trickle down. By the time his pick for vice president is done with this country, Newt Gingrich will look like a flaming liberal.

Oh, yes, and when you think of Sarah Palin, think Mata Hari and Machiavelli combined. Some soccer mom who shoots wolves from 20,000 feet; some friend to the earth who thinks humankind has had nothing to do with global warming.

We're not shopping for a pair of pantyhose here; we're electing a president. The whole world will feel the aftershocks of this one.

McCain picked some spokesperson for a "culture of life," one who opposes stem cell research, and puts the life of a fetus the size of your ring finger above the life of your co-ed daughter, who will join in reinforcing abstinence-only education, in HIV/AIDS riddled continents like Asia and Africa, as well as in the inner cities of America while, at the same time, not bothering to instruct her own 17 year old daughter in abstinence.

With McCain/Palin, we'll make great headway: instead of trickle down economics, we'll have trickle down morality.

Do you want another lunatic fringe running your government?

Do you want a group whose views reflect those of less than a quarter of the population, who think that the apocalypse is a good thing, only a sneeze away from pushing the button that will blow us to hell and back? If so, then vote for John McCain.

With McCain/Palin, we get a culture of life that virtually guarantees a culture of death will follow in its wake.
