<I>I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight..... <p>·If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, <br>different." <br>·Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story. <p>·If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. <br>·Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick. <p>·Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable. <br>·Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded. <p>·If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black <br>editor of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that <br>registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law <br>professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with <br>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 Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience. <p>·If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council <br>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. <p>·If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 <br>beautiful daughters, all within protestant churches, you're not a real <br>Christian. <br>·If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your <br>disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian. <p>·If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the <br>proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society. <br>·If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other <br>option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you're very responsible. <p>·If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a <br>prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, <br>then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent <br>America's. <br>·If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI <br>conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age <br>25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession <br>of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable. <p>OK, much clearer now</I>

Re: Anti-McCain post - a little perspective (adp)

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>A couple of small corrections. I don't think that anyone accused Obama of being "unstable"; McCain maybe but not Obama. He was accused of being "elitist"; "unstable" should be "elitist."<p>Palin was the sports anchor, not the meteorologist. The meteorologist position requires science education that is above her pay grade.
