More McCain Whacko supporters

Sunday Shocker!

The Gargoyle Leader endorses McCain. This comes as no surprise. I argued with some of my contributors this week about it, a couple of them thought they would pick Obama. My argument for picking McCain? I know it seems cliche’ but the AL knows who butters their bread, and it ain’t liberal democrats – just read this statement about liberals (apparently boogie men to South Dakotans).

Sen. Barack Obama is a strong candidate and a compelling figure, but is a liberal Democrat by any measure. On many of the biggest issues facing the country, he simply is not the best candidate for South Dakota.

I always call a Argus endorsement ‘The Kiss of Death’. I guess Obama will win afterall.

Obama in Hawaii, wearing slippers.

NPR had a great segment on All Things Considered today where voters from York, PA expressed election hopes and fears.

Take the time to listen, it’s well worth it.

Obama is a Hindu and Squirrely Republicans don’t eat ACORNS

Once again the Karl Rove tactics of voter supression are coming into play. Hopefully Obama will be able to head it off.

ACORN explains how only 5% of their registrations are bad.

Apparently Obama now is supported by the Hindus now? I never would have guessed.

And if anyone is wondering, I am a secret Wiccan.

 

South DaCola Sketches

These are some sketches I did while I was on the plane. I know, McCain looks like Kennedy – don’t know why? The Palin one is hard to read, so I will paraphrase. She talks about Obama’s connection to domestic terrorists. Then if you notice, Steve Stolls is burying weapons in his front yard, and there is a Confederate Flag in his window that says ‘John Birch Society’ and the sign in the background says ‘Welcome to Wasilla’

South DaCola email box

I got this email from a reader while I was gone on vacation. Not sure what is up with the LINK, if someone sees something I don’t let me know;

Hi DL:

    Do you think that John Thune would like to remember what he said here (link below) in the midst of all of this Palin-stoked anti-Obama  that is going on at the McCain campaign rallies nationally?  Should a senator like Thune, who we see on TV walking side by side with McCain through the hallways of the Capitol, really keep quiet through all of this?  Can we expect to hear from Senator Thune some denunciation of the tone of these take out Obama psycho-crowds? Why hasn’t he said anything?  If he has changed his own opinion of Obama, maybe he should let us know.  If he has a future in a post-McCain republican party, maybe now is the time to speak up and denounce this crap.  Do you think a cartoon would help?  Or just a letter to an editor?

If I were a republican and remembered Thune’s endearing words, I’d think it’s be OK to vote Obama, wouldn’t you?

Yours truly,

Here is the LINK to Thune’s comments.

Powell endorses Obama

“I think he is a transformational figure, he is a new generation coming onto the world stage, onto the American stage, and for that reason I’ll be voting for Sen. Barack Obama,” Powell said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“Obama displayed a steadiness, an intellectual curiosity, a depth of knowledge,” Powell said.

“He has met the standard of being a successful president, being an exceptional president,” he said.

I wonder how long it will take the McCain campaign to smear Powell when he spoke of Obama being a Christian:

Powell, who served as Secretary of State for President George W. Bush, said he was also “troubled what members of the Republican party” have said along the lines of , “We know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.”

First off, Powell said, Obama is a Christian. But more to the point, he said, “is there something wrong with being a Muslim?” He worried about the message the GOP was sending to a hypothetical 7-year-old Muslim American who thinks he can grow up and be president some day.

History making. This is what this election has been called in many ways. The glass celling has been shattered. How inspiring for Americans to be able to feel as they may have when they were 7-years-old, when someone told them, “you can be anything. Even president of the United States of America.”

Health of the Mother

John McCain’s Debate explanation when Obama explian’s his voting record on abortion.

“Health of the Mother… this has been stretched by the pro-abortion movement to mean almost anything.”

Sound Familiar? Vote Yes For Life has been trying this angle once again, in claiming the exceptions for the health of the mother are clearly defined within Initiated Measure 11. They are really hoping you won’t read the fine print (or understand it).

But it seems clear to the lawyers for Sanford Health:

“The health-of-the-mother exception imposes a standard that is not clearly defined. Medical facilities and providers have learned, through the malpractice arena, that whether a physician’s clinical judgment comports with ‘accepted standards of medical practice’ can be a matter of debate. Initiated Measure 11 borrows the civil litigation standards, which can be ambiguous and subject to different interpretations, and attaches criminal penalties for failing to comply with the potentially vague, undefined standards. As a result, for those instances where a pregnant woman faces uncertain, but potentially very serious health risks, Initiated Measure 11 will require a physician to choose between possibly committing a felony or subjecting a pregnant woman to a higher degree of medical risk that what would otherwise be clinically desired.

Mr. McCain, with all due respect, no one is pro abortion. We all would like to see abortion to be limited, but until those trying to stop it (VYFL) do not do it in a truthful manner, and to contradict themselves in saying “All life is precious”, yet are flip about “the health of the mother”, you My Friend, are selling us lipstick on a pig.

Hey John, some of your supporters are whackos
