Judgment seems to be a big issue to the republicans this year.
Since of course they have NO legs to stand on when it comes to real issues like the Iraq Occupation, the tanking economy, health care, $4 a gallon gas (though you can bet their buddies in the oil business will miraculously find a way to lower prices before the election) or stuff like ya know, torture and spying on your phone calls and e-mails. Or really, any solutions to any of the many problems that we face. They have no vision for the future except more of the same lame crap that has gotten us to the sorry point we are at now.
And yet the race is tied.
It is tied because the Republicans have managed once again to make this election about morality. The Culture Wars, they call it. But the culture war is really a morality war. The republicans define themselves as moral. Thus do they define Democrats as immoral. Church and state, gay rights, abortion, crime and punishment, and of course ‘activists judges,’ since they want to appoint their own activist judges
The Republicans want to define morality for the nation.
While John McCain wants to kill more Iraqis. While he wants to continue the economic policies that are causing foreclosures, bankruptcy and high unemployment and inflation that hurt every American so that the rich can get richer. While he lives in his seven homes as veterans live under bridges. He panders to the Religious Wrong with his Palin pick, the folks who want to tell you what you can do in your own bedroom, and with who.
Is this moral? Does this show good judgment?
Where do these folks get off trying to portray themselves as the moral arbiters for all of America, and what can we do to keep them from continuing to impose their hypocritical morals on the rest of us? When did political power become the power to impose their morality on the rest of us? How do we make this shit….stop!?!?
