There’s an angry clash going on between McCain and Palin, who wants to run for President in 2012.
The clash is a dirty little secret, but I have the Inside Scoop.
Sadly, much of the Republican Party has become the Party of Fear, Ignorance and Hate.
I suspect that’s why so many respectable Republicans are leaving the sinking McCain ship, including, incredibly, even conservative donors to the McCain campaign, and Colin Powell, Chris Buckley (son of William F. Buckley), Reagan Solicitor General Charles Fried, and former South Dakota Senator Larry Pressler.
There is certrainly a place for a thoughtful Republican Party in America. Perhaps after a great loss, the party will regroup and find its soul outside its current tropes of fear, ignorance, and hate. There’s a great article about that here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/26/opinion/26egan.html?ref=opinion
If not, as a Democrat, I have to say: GO PALIN IN 2012!
The race has tightened. An eight-point race has become a five-six point one.
Does that mean I think Obama will lose? Not at all.
But it does mean we should FEAR complacency. It’s our biggest enemy.
Now get out there and canvass for Obama and the Democrats!
And if anyone complains about “spreading the wealth,” first ask them if they’re making $250,000 or more. If they are, remind them that even McCain supports a progressive income tax which has been around since 1913, and that Obama would do nothing more than return them to (somewhat less than) the tax rates in the strong economy of the Clinton years, when the rich got substantially richer. Tell them our deficit is huge, and since they wanted the war in Iraq (as almost everyone who complains about Obama did), they should have to pay for it. Nothing in life is free.
Democrat Judy Feder is running against Republican Frank Wolf in a Northern Virginia Congressional District.
From the looks of things, John McCain’s connection to G. Gordon Liddy is far greater than Barack Obama to William Ayers, and not just because Liddy hosted a fundraiser at his house for McCain. McCain defends Liddy, while Obama has condemned Ayers. See, e.g., http://www.huffingtonpost.com/carl-bernstein/ayers-and-the-mccain-g-go_b_134256.html
