Hmmm… it is a bit late for this But I feel a need to chime in for a minute on Michelle Bachmann. The woman last friday said Barack Obama “May have anti-American views” on Hardball with Chris Matthews. When he pushed, first she mentioned Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers. Can’t disagree there. But when he pressed further, she said that there should be a penetrating Expose by the media to find out how many of our legislators are Anti-American. That’s some very Joe McCarthy-like stuff there.
Her Republican allies were not lining up to help her out of this. The McCain Campaign did not have a direct response to her statement, but did say that they do not question Sen. Obama’s patriotism. Spokesmen from the house minority leader, and the house minority whip had no comment.
In this day and age, it is par for the course that McCarthyism is rearing it’s ugly head. At this point, with just two weeks to go before the election, this has turned into a free for all on the republican side. Charges of Anti-Americanism here by Rep. Bachmann, Sarah Palin and John McCain call the Obama tax plan socialism, And Sen. Mel Martinez called Obama’s economic plan communist. Now who would you impress with such banter?
Older white voters. Voters that, as a block, are already solidly behind Sen. McCain.
Dammit…Suddenly Busy Husband. Will finish this post when possible. Working all the time, dammit.
Just adding a small bit here to say that the work is done. Home theatre system is together and working fine. Just a video and nuggets and I’m done.
The Video is of Thomas Keane talking about Bipartisanship:
That’s it for me. G’night:
Today’s Nuggets, Via Wikiquote: I often observed to my brother, You see now how little nature requires to be satisfied. Felicity, the companion of content, is rather found in our own breasts than in the enjoyment of external things; And I firmly believe it requires but a little philosophy to make a man happy in whatsoever state he is. This consists in a full resignation to the will of Providence; and a resigned soul finds pleasure in a path strewed with briars and thorns. Daniel Boone
Even the most inspired verse, which boasts not without a relative justification to be immortal, becomes in the course of ages a scarcely legible hieroglyphic; the language it was written in dies, a learned education and an imaginative effort are requisite to catch even a vestige of its original force. Nothing is so irrevocable as mind. George Santayana
