I’m watching a little bit of the Republican National Convention. I know, I know, I know. You’re asking why I would want to torture myself like that. I just want to see what they have to say.
And what they have to say is pretty exasperating. I’ve yet to hear any one suggestion about why anyone should vote for McCain. All they have to say is what’s supposedly wrong with Obama. All they do is bash and bash and bash. The only reason to vote for McCain is to vote against Obama.
Why so defensive, Republicans?
Because you ought to be. Because I think that you know that McCain is a hard sell to the American public. And so is Palin.
Side note – I can’t believe that Giuliani just tried to bring up the Republicans’ role in ending slavery, while earlier in this speech, he said something that sounded exceptionally racist (thanks Jay Smooth) about “Islamic Terrorists.” What about the Catholic Terrorists? What about the just plain psychotic terrorists? What about the Neo-Nazi White Supremacist Terrorists? Not a problem? Don’t need to protect Americans from those? Just the Muslims, huh?
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, the hard sell. Here’s the thing, the Republicans have got to know that the American public is tired of their shit. Tired of their national debt, which is the lead cause of our faltering economy. The reason our young people are being sent to die in a war that does not have a damn thing to do with the terrorists who have attacked Americans in our land.
McCain would rather lose the election than lose a war, and that’s just what he’s going to do. Because to “stay the course” is to ignore the will of the American people, who have spoken, and who have said, “Enough is enough!” He’s disrespectful of democracy, just like Bush, and for that reason he should not, and FSM willing, will not be elected.
