From Palin’s speech

“Al Qaida terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America, and he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights.”

I’ve been in Denver for over a week now, which has meant lots of conversations with Democrats who believe that anyone who disagrees with them is stupid, evil, or most likely both. Contrarian that I am, this has me standing up for McCain with disconcerting frequency. Then I’m reminded that disparaging basic civil liberties is now a sure-fire applause line for the GOP and am struck once again by how thoroughly screwed we are in this election.

    Oh by the way, in addition to not seeming to give a damn about civil liberties, both candidates are also projected (conservatively) to jack the national debt by $3 trillion over the next ten years.

    Hmm, I think I’m going to go into the corner, curl up in the fetal position, and cry now.

    I’m stockpiling coffee beans. Roast and drink myself into oblivion. We are so screwed.

  3. Matt says:

    That was certainly the most concerning line in the speech, and creeped me the hell out.

    But I’d like to remind everyone that either of these picks has to be better than Bush. Right?

    Yeah, that pissed me off. Really? REALLY?

  5. Bob Brashear says:

    Just getting tired of the major parties giving us a “lesser of two evils” choice. The last two presidential elections gave us a choice of pure evil on both sides. The past ten years, I have voted for minor party candidates or write ins in local, state and national elections. This had no effect on the outcome or the direction our society is taking, but at least I can sleep at night.

    The logistics of your blog’s layout amount for an interesting contrast.

    You have a post decrying the GOP’s disregard of civil liberties next to an ad encouraging people to donate to the McCain-Palin campaign. ???
