A word or two of clarification regarding my remarks yesterday about John McCain. Don't mistake my words for affection. I do not like the MoFo. But I do honor his military sacrifice and am saddened by a campaign that does not match his past service to his country.
In truth, neither presidential campaign can wear a halo. But the McCain/Palin campaign is descending into the dark netherworld of hatred and bigotry. The politics of fear.
A growing number of respected conservative writers agree.
This week, nationally syndicated columnist David Brooks described Sarah Palin as a cancer on the Republican Party. Can’t get much stronger than that.
I try to rise above the muck. Sometimes, like with yesterday’s first post, I succeed. But often I feel obliged to shovel back.
That’s what worries me. America is in for some tough economic times Check your mail for third-quarter losses to your 401K. Tough times ahead. Likely for years.
We need to be pulling together – not apart.
