|Um, perhaps you can point out where I suggested that McCain is a class act?|
Um, perhaps you can point out where I claimed that you did?
|I've toyed around with idea of not voting at all in the Presidential election. I find Palin interesting, but as yet know next to nothing about her.|
I find her to be a predictably, profoundly dishonest Christianist scumbag. Did you hear that she's already lawyered up for the Troopergate scandal?
|I think McCain was an ass to leave his his first wife. Period.|
So why are so many of your fellow fundies cool with it?
|Leaving her to marry a millionaire several times over doesn't impress me much either, but then none of us are without fault which makes it difficult to throw stones.|
Jesus Christ spoke against hypocrisy, didn't He? I don't recall him saying anything about homosexuality or abortion or evolution, though.
|I still don't know for sure where I stand in this campaign, but I do feel like this Palin chick has more in common with the average joe than some of these folks on capital hill.|
But not in a good way. I want my leaders to be exceptional people. Why don't you?
|BTW, you'll probably remember Obama's words where he stated that if his girls "made a mistake" he wouldn't want them "punished" by having a child. I prefer to believe that he didn't think that comment through, as a child should never be considered a "punishment" regardless of what the situation is.|
Yep, and I see how you are dishonestly twisting them, too. The child herself is not the punishment, bearing and caring for the child is the punishment. Of course, you're probably too blinded by racism to see how you used the straw man fallacy there.
How about that abstinence-based sex education BS Palin endorses?
How about the idea that a 44-year-old woman (high-risk on the basis of age alone) who travels in her third trimester, has contractions (not B-H) and amniotic fluid leakage, yet remains in Texas to give a speech, flies through Seattle, drives through Anchorage and its NICUs, to give birth ~12 hours later in a suburban hospital with NO facilities for high-risk mothers or babies?
Did you know that her physician is a family practicioner, not OB-GYN?
Did you know that her physician has privileges at at least one of the Anchorage hospitals with an NICU? Why didn't she just meet them there?
You can't explain a single one of these actions as those of someone who views her baby's life as precious, FTK. On top of that, her decision to accept McCondo$'s offer and put her pregnant daughter in the spotlight was incredibly selfish. Her daughter has been punished like no child deserves to be punished.
