If it's good enough for McCain...

I was going to do a post about al Queda's endorsement of John McCain:

Al-Qaida supporters suggested in a Web site message this week they would welcome a pre-election terror attack on the U.S. as a way to usher in a McCain presidency.

The message, posted Monday on the password-protected al-Hesbah Web site, said if al-Qaida wants to exhaust the United States militarily and economically, "impetuous" Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain is the better choice because he is more likely to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier," the message said. "Then, al-Qaida will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush."

...but then I found out it was fake. Still, baseless allegations about terrorist ties has never stopped the McCain campaign, has it? Oh wait. They're mad about it this time.

Yeah, the GOP can dish it out, but they can't take it, can they? Well, at least not without an eye roll, a grunt, and a grimace.

And here I was waiting for the al Qaida endorsement to decide who to vote for....

Kidding! Gawsh, tough crowd!

This morning, I was advised of a flyer by the GOP that was truly vile, linking Obama with terrorists. I was so appalled that I wrote the following to the chairman of the GOP:

I am appalled at the level to which the GOP has sunk.

I was once a Republican, thinking that the conservatism espoused by the GOP was the correct path. But I stopped when the GOP began trying to dictate my morality. I think of myself as a conservative on economy and governmental laws, but a social liberal.

Slinging mud at a very respectable person as this flyer does does no one good. It raises more questions about the GOP and McCain than makes people turn against Obama. You're only capturing the fringe vote with methods like this.

I am truly sorry, but until I feel the Republican party goes back to basics of less governmental influence, I will not vote Republican. I definitely cannot while your party continues to lie so openly.

Did you get the Obama/Ayers mailer? The one that's written like a story-book? In Indiana? I just got it too!

It's great being back in America. It's almost like all this election stuff is real.

"A vote for McCain is a vote for al-Qaida terrorism."

I'm Osama Bin Laden and I approved this message.
