full story in the NY Times
All I can say about this, personally, is that the McCain/Clinton alliance is under-estimated and under-reported.
At this point…the most ardent McCain supporters I know….are the people who know Obama the best…..Chicago Democrats…..
Tonight I will be attending a debate watching party in Downtown Chicago…
At the party will be many Democrats and many Republicans…….many white people and many minorities….many straight people and many gay people……many rich people and many poor people….many young people and many old people…..
Don’t believe the media hype…..
McCain’s support is deep and diverse…..
It’s time to be proud of supporting the only candidate who has actually done something…..who has actually stood up to his own party……who has actually fought for his country…..
As a Chicagoan, I know just how little Obama has done….his former state senate district is a sad mess…..a downtrodden place, plagued with violence, drugs, slumlords, religious zealots, and political corruption…..
While it is true that Barack Obama did not create this mess…….it is also true that he has done nothing to stop it, fight for it, or bring national attention to it….
Again, do not believe the media hype…
Even more, do not let the media think for you….
Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, David Gergen, Wolf Blitzer, Roland Martin, Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Brian Williams, Andrea Mitchell, Campbell Brown, etc, etc….are out of touch dolts, who all went to the same 5 schools, go to the same parties, work out at the same gyms, drive the same types of cars, live in the same neighborhoods, go to the same churches and synagogues, read the same periodicals, go to the same websites, own the same stocks, have the same stock brokers, eat at the same restaurants, wear the same clothes, and date the same people…..is it any wonder they all think the same?…..
never once have they left their studios for the streets of the South side of Chicago…..Alaska, yes……Chicago, no (maybe the North side, or the Miracle Mile, but never Obama’s neighborhood)
why is this?
Do they not care about minorities being exploited, killed, and ignored?….
Do they really think a trooper being fired is more important than 123 people being slain to death, in a 6-mile radius, over a 3-month period this summer?
Do they really think a high school student (Bristol Palin) getting pregnant, is a bigger story than 27 school-children being killed in Chicago’s schools?
Do they really want to compare trooper gate to rezko gate?….I don’t think so….
So with 3-weeks left…..don’t just vote for John McCain…
Tell others you are voting for John McCain….
Don’t be afraid to say it out loud…
If someone wants to play the race card on you….just remember the stats……123 people (primarily minorities) died in Obama’s neighborhood this summer….27 Chicago public school children (primarily minorities) died last school year……..
unlike Senator Obama, you care about this, and want to bring attention to this….
to not do so……is racist…
