More politics


I just finished listening to McCain's acceptance of the GOP nomination and I must say that I always find his war heroism inspiring. In fact, I find his call for the need to subsume one's interests to a greater cause very compelling—though I am not sure that the nation is the right level—but I am at an utter loss as to the way in which the modern GOP (not the party of Lincoln or TR or even the Rockefellers) has ever asked any of its members to do anything more than look out for themselves. I can sometimes find McCain a compelling figure, but not in the version in which he has now had to rebrand himself.

JT's neck is a little less turkey-like (or is it) but I agree.

I frequently tell myself if by any weird chance McCains wins the election, he will sell-out the Religious Right. I think he has used the RR (via Palin) to sure up the lunatic fringe of the Party - then will throw them off the ship come January 2009 - wishful thinking? And Dobson will say, see I told you so.

I say this simply to alleviate any fears of a possible Palin Administration...shit that is terrifying....
