Memo To John McCain
This is posted by permission from The Jawa Report. Memo to John McCain: The Moment We Cease to Be 'Scared' of Obama as President of the United States... ...is the moment many of us cease to be particularly interested in getting you elected in his place. Despite your advice that we shouldn't be scared of Obama as President, I remain very, very troubled by the idea of a President Barack Obama, as do millions of other Americans. If you have any interest in actually becoming President rather than just going through the motions of a campaign, you'd better do whatever you can to keep it that way. For the most part, you have a chance in this race at all for one reason: you are not Barack Obama. Very few people love you--or even like you. For a great many of us, our support for your candidacy has little, if anything, to do with any wonderful things we expect you to do if you're elected President In fact, if you're elected, we'll no doubt have to spend a whole bunch of our time over the next four years trying to prevent you from doing much. Our support of your candidacy arises, rather, out of the really shitty things we reasonably expect Barack Obama and his socialist allies to do to our country if he's elected. The moment Barack Obama becomes an acceptable option in this election, you're pretty much finished. If you have any hopes of winning, you'd do well to keep that in mind and act accordingly.

And once she learns more about economics, she ought to be king of the world. Ok I'm overstating. But I really do like her a lot, and think her potential is quite amazing.
