Liberal DesperationIn this week's electoral map, John McCain seems to have opened up a slight lead in Virginia:
New Mexico moves back into the toss-up category, but it may very well see-saw back and forth between toss-up and "leans Republican" before it finally closes. There is little doubt that the selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate is motivating the conservative base like nothing else could have done. Conservatives are absolutely thrilled by this choice, and as Adam Graham has pointed out, liberals are engaging in their own crude sexism against Palin. What is most intreaguing about the reaction of the Left is that they are growing increasingly desperate, realising that they can't attack Palin for her inexperience because she has more executive experience than the man at the top of the Democratic ticket.
How desperate are the liberals? Alan Colmes has sunk to a new low, attempting to blame Sarah Palin for her youngest child's Down's Syndrome.
Former Democratic Chairman Don Fowler is happy about Hurricane Gustav hitting New Orleans, since it could disrupt the Republican National Convention. Listen to this conversation between Fowler and South Carolina Democratic Congressman John Spratt:
"God is on our side?"
This would be like me saying that the 1989 San Francisco Bay earthquake happened because God is a Cub Fan...
The more some of these people squeal-and they do squeal like greased pigs at a county fair-it is evident that all of their talk about gender equality doesn't apply when the woman is a conservative. The Left is literally in panic mode that a conservative, pro-life, heat-packing evangelical may become the most powerful woman in the world-and she would have earned every bit of it.
As for John McCain's decision to tone down the convention-I wrestled with it, because we'd all love to have a grand affair to launch this campaign. The more that I thought about McCain's decision, however, the more I realized that the welfare of our fellow citizens should be placed before our own political well-being. This is a disaster for all concerned, and people's minds are not going to be in Minneapolis today.
As for the Lord-something tells me He's liable to have it in for Don Fowler...
