Weather Forecast


Ignorance is no longer bliss...this is 2008

If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different". Obama

Grow up in Alaska eating moose-burgers, a quintessential American story. Palin

If your name is Barack, you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. Obama

Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a regular American. Palin

Graduate from Harvard Law School and you are unstable. Obama

Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded. Palin

If you spend 3 years as a 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 a chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 12 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veterans Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience. Obama

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? Palin

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. Obama

If you cheated on your wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian? McCain

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society. Obama

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. Palin.

If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer 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? Obama.

If your husband is nicknamed "First Dude", and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable? Palin

Keep all thing in perspective people. I have watched our great county deteriorate in the last 8 years under George Bush and his administration. Remember the first 6 years he had a Republican congress, if I'm not mistaken, which should tell you something. The color of a man's skin should not be considered in your choice on election day.
