"I Feel Safer With John McCain"

"I just feel safer with him," I keep hearing. "Safer with John McCain." (I'm hearing this from other people, sometimes people I love; not the voices in my head).

You feel safer? As in, Pepaw McCain is going to make everything ok and take care of you and protect little girl from bad people out there? Does baby want a cookie?

I'm sincerely making a heartfelt effort to understand that point of view.

Maybe you're right. Perhaps there IS something reassuring (in a paternal, grandfatherly sort of way) about a politician who has been known to call his wife a "c*nt." In public, mind you!

I can't buy into the "safer with McCain" bullshit concept.

In fact, I feel decidedly unsafe with McCain.

45 Days: Elizabeth Dole & Ken Lay

DAY 45

But a campaign spokesperson lied to North Carolinians when he announced that her campaign activities were allegedly still “on hold” that very same day. Just days after September 11, Dole was saying one thing and doing another in...Texas?
