Elderly, Moderates Power McCain in Fla
It's a dark, dark day in Florida politics. What have you done? What were you thinking? I must admit I grossly underestimated the gullibility of some republicans to be swayed by polls and endorsements. I also did not fully understand just how deep religious bigotry and intolerance goes in the Sunshine State when it comes to Mormons. There are winners and losers in last night's debacle. You celebrate a victory if you are an illegal alien, a R.I.N.O. or a liberal. It's a sad, sad day if you are a true conservative because the base of your party has sold their soul. To some,victory(i.e. beating Hillary) is more important than principal. I have to imagine that if Ronald Reagan were alive today there would be a tear running down his cheek.
I had to laugh last night as I watched Mel Martinez talk about John McCain being a man of honor. I wanted to ask Mel "what was honorable about committing adultery on your wife and dumping her after she was involved in a car accident and put on a little weight?" Maybe Mel could tell us about the honor involved in being one of the Keating Five? Read more about this honorable man in P.O.W. to Power Broker, A Chapter Most Telling
For some reason I'm reminded of this Biblical passage
But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. Luke23:28
