Oops, Sorry!

I said that wrong. I don't mean to say that anyone voting for Obama is a mindless lemming who has failed to educate themselves or think. I've just had so many people lately express their eagerness to vote for Obama because he's eloquent, or to defeat McCain because he's a bumbling fool-of-an-orator. Those just aren't good enough reasons in my mind for picking a president or dismissing a candidate. If you've educated yourself and have an opinion based on more than looks and public speaking ability, well, more power to you!

No no no. Don't apologize! This election scares me to death! I don't get why people want to elect Obama when he doesn't salute our flag, or recite the Pledge, plus... his wife HATES America! How can a First Lady HATE her country?! SCARY!!
I have an email that you will love.
And what a great idea to make a blog about this situation! Good for you!
