Then there is the apparently brilliant choice of Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate. While I have mixed feelings personally about whether mom's can effectively work full-time outside the home and mother their children, I actually feel as though I am being represented in this choice by McCain. Don't get me wrong, McCain is far from perfect and I can think of several other candidates I would have rather seen run, but I believe I will be able to vote for McCain/Palin to defeat Obamanation with a clear conscience. Wingnut thinks Palin is untouchable, as far as criticism and political attacks go. That remains to be seen, but at least I am no longer stressed and depressed about this year's elections.
Now if Gustav would just blow off and leave Louisiana in peace.
