We're Confused

Wish we'd come up with this one on our own, but we didn't:

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 mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
Name your kids Willow , Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.

If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, 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 representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on theForeign 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, then 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 laywer 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 you're husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI conviction 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 Alaskafrom the USA , your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

Why do you hate freedom?

You point out many very strange illogical comparisons between the Red and the Blue. Could it be that that the corporate masters of mainstream meadia know who they want to win?

My personal favorite is why is it that when you lie about squashing a bridge to nowhere, and get called on it, the media focuses on the calling out rather than the underlying lie.

You forgot to mention the creationism curriculum and the book banning.

Though I had leanings toward McCain at one time and might really have supported him had he named Joe Lieberman to his ticket, the nomination of Sarah Palin is utterly revolting to me, and I could not possibly now consider supporting McCain. I shudder to think what would happen if the strains of the job kill him and she takes the helm.

We don't need an executive in the Oval Office who makes snap judgments based on incomplete information and who seems to be more interested in window dressing at this point. McCain did not put country first at all with this choice.

Hey, you can quote me on that!!!!
