Ain’t it the truth…

OK, I don’t usually post stuff circulating as an E-mail (unless its from a Liberian finance minister) but I found this amusing. Regardless of your political stripe you can see what happens to “truth” out there…check it out…

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”

* Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers,  a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

* Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, and you’re a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and be President of the Law Review, and you are unstable.

* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor,  spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate repre senting 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.

* If your total resume is: local weather girl,  4 years on the city council 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.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

* If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you’re very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.

* If your husband is nicknamed “First Dude”,  with at least one DUI convicti on and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

    Why do you hate America, Philbert? 😉

    Hey, what’s this about a “disfigured wife” of John McCain? You lost me there. I thought he was the one who was disfigured? Sorry, am I allowed to say that?

  2. Again, this is how things spin. Carol McCain was seriously injured in a car crash on Christmas Eve, 1969. The surgery to repair her pelvis, legs and arm left her “disfigured.” But, to suggest McCain dumped her because of her disfigurement isn’t exactly fair. They remained married, though McCain started an illicit affair with Cindy in 1979, for 6 years after he returned from Viet Nam.

    I used the London Daily Mail as a source for the dates. I had always heard that McCain was less than perfect in the husband department, but to be honest, I don’t really care. There are plenty of other (policy) reasons for me to base a decision on how I’ll spend my vote.

    I don’t think the Obama camp has made McCain’s (or Palin’s) family life an issue. Last I heard he was quoted as saying something like, “let’s not let little things detract from a big election.” But, stuff gets said and spun in all directions. I take it all with a dose of skepticism.

    The only candidate you can vote for and KNOW you’re getting the short end with, is yours truly for Redding City Council!

    Phil, Phil, Phil. Doncha know that a candidate can’t be a Real American unless he or she belongs to the NRA? Join the NRA, and all one’s sins are forgiven. I believe that’s part of the Cosmic Law.
