The other day, I thanked Senator John McCain for beginning to dial back the accusatory, inflammatory rhetoric against Barack Obama. Since then, things have gone right back to where they were before Senator McCain had his apparent moment of conscience. Sadly, it was just that - only a moment. I won’t bother to detail the laundry list of rotten, miserable, truth-twisting, ugly, illogical, nonsensical, racist and flat out lies which have continued to roll out from the McCain-Palin ticket, their campaign and the Big Republican Machine. Read any major newspaper; listen to any newscast - yes even that channel - and you will see and hear their mendacious ways for yourself. I don’t have the stomach for it.
I will say that as the weeks go by, Barack Obama continues to demonstrate his intelligence, his tenacity, his grace, his good humor and his ability to remain cool under fire. Joe Biden remains good natured, knowledgeable, thoughtful and indefatigable in urging the citizenry to “Get up!”. What a miraculous contrast the Obama-Biden team is to Bush-Cheney-Rove-McCain-Palin et al.
There are just 21 days left until the election.
There are just 98 days left until the inauguration.
