It Is Finished

Congrats to President-elect Barack Obama.

A damned shame that John McCain sold his political soul along the way, embracing the most intolerant and ignorant aspects of the Republican base in the hope of victory through pandering. And then, to act surprised by the nasty attitude of his supporters while he gave his concession speech… please, McCain, please. Paying honor to a man your campaign said “pals around with terrorists.” You’re either a hypocrite or a liar, and I honestly think you were uncomfortable with the direction of your campaign, but – yet – you went along for the ride. A ride to nowhere (hey, let’s ask Palin about trips to Nowhere).

So, that’s that.

Move along, nothing to see.

    Andy:
    Your observations are spot on, and I agree.

    However, you do realize that even occasional blogging is still, well, blogging?

    Best wishes to you, the missus, and the wee ones.

    What is Bill Ayers if not a terrorist? He definitely wasn’t just “some guy in the neighborhood…”

    I never said whether he was or wasn’t… I pointed out the disconnect between McCain and Palin now, and their earlier words.

    Ah … with you now – that’ll teach me to skim! As for McCain’s political soul – it was sold long before this campaign.

    I have to agree… he sold his soul in 2004 and on to the NeoCons.

    If he had stuck to his guns, he would have had an amazing amount of support from Independents and even Democrats. He was a lot of people’s choice in 2000.
