I Spent Friday Pallin’ Around With Terrorists
Kidding! Obama is totally not a terrorist. For realz! And, well, I probably didn’t actually pal around with him anyway. But I did go to an Obama rally with AmazonMidwife and her kids. We volunteered and it was fun. Dawn watched my kids because she rocks and because the children have been to two rallies and worked at one Campaign for Change headquarters and they’ve, frankly, had enough. Lena said she had mixed feelings about missing the rally, but she really wanted to hang out with Noah. Terrorist.
I saw the anti-classy anti-choice abortion van drive around and around the rally. With a great big picture of an aborted fetus on it. That was gross. And not classy at all. And super gross. It made me go, “Huh. That’s gross. And manipulative.” And then I wondered why we don’t go around bombing abortion vans and anti-choice protestors. And then I remembered it’s because we know that we can look at that van and go, “Ew, gross,” and then we can choose to look away instead of throwing rocks at it. Because nobody is forcing us to look. See how awesome it is to have a choice? It, like, makes the hate go away. Anyway, proof I was there (not much proof, since my camera’s batteries died):
As usual, Obama was totally classy. You know what else is classy? This:
On Friday during a town hall-style meeting in Lakeville, Minn., a supporter told McCain that he feared what would happen if Obama were elected. McCain drew boos when he defended his rival as a “decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.”
In another exchange, a woman told McCain that she didn’t trust Obama because “he’s an Arab.” Shaking his head and taking the microphone from her, McCain replied: “No, ma’am. He’s a decent, family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign is all about.”
Now if he could just put some ads on that have less to do with fear-mongering and more to do with those issues, he might still lose this race, but at least his credibility will remain intact.
