CONFUSED ??? How about some straight answers !

(The following is not an original by me. However it merits reading. I admit that I am already committed to my choice for President...but, if I were not, this would surely turn the tide!)

“I ' m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....
* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic, different.'

* Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a quintessential American story.
* If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

* Name your kids Briston, Willow, Piper, Trig, and Track, you're a maverick.
* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.
* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving
on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affair committees, you don 't have any real leadership experience.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive and next in line behind a man in his eighth decade.
******************************* * If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2
daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and then left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a true Christian.
* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.
* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.

* If your husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
It is much clearer now…”

(PS: 9/19... I just listened to a speech by Palin where she actually said, "Welcome to the Palin/McCain race"....I wonder what John McCain thinks of being relegated to the number two spot?)

Oh Ginnie--this is funny and sad all together.
And, yes, it is MUCH clearer now.

Ginnie, I received this email from my daughter this morning, and I sent it to a cousin of mine, in answer to her previous email which was (as hers always are) disparaging of Obama. Her response to me was...."Touche. I still prefer my candidate."

Some people cannot be swayed with logic; their minds are already made up.

Ginnie--we are on the same page and then some. My mind is made up too. I do know people who said that they were stupid to vote for Dubya, yet they are now going to vote for McCain/Palin. Go is beyond my ken. As Kenju said, some people cannot be swayed by logic or information.

I had read this in an email somebody sent me. It's priceless!
And what a great opps! by Palin....they'd better start changing the ticket to read Palin/ least according to Sarah.
Hope all is well with you, Ginnie. I just don't understand why you can't get into my blog anymore. (pout) Nobody else has mentioned a problem.

Wow. Funny, but very sad. I'm stunned by how well the wool seems to be being pulled over so many people's collective eyes! Palin/McCain is a scary ticket in my book. (More scary if Palin winds up in the driver's seat at some point!)
