What are folks thinking? or not..McCain's campaign is messing with their brains. They have cloud ed up their ability to process truth from fiction, right from wrong and have given them some frightful amnesiac that makes them think all they need for second in command of our country is a NRA member hockey mom. I can't believe this is happening. What are folks thinking?

This is my first visit here and it won't be my last. I enjoyed this post immensely.

My ex-husband's father said more than once that "The average man is awfully damned average." My take is he was and is right and that it's never been more apparent than this election.

I am frightened for my country but I don't recognize it anymore.

Very good post, Cindy. Excellent examples here. I have so many problems with McCain's choice of Sarah Palin that I literally read pro-Palin rhetoric and watch the TV sound bites with jaw hanging open. I just don't get it. Or rather...I do get it...I'm sad to have to believe it.

Thanks for the hard work to assemble the film metaphors which hopefully won't guide our nation anymore, but it's worrying. I'm afraid the general populace IS a lot more stupid or at least not willing to analyze the real issues. That's what the cynical Rovian politicos are betting on--why isn't it as plain to them as it is to us!?

What's so frightening is how a disastrous war, $5.00 gasoline and horrendous leaps in food prices don't seem to deter them from a febrile wish to be deluded by style and lies rather than substance. God help us.

I'm forwarding this article far and wide--thanks! ~Kathi

I apologize.... Your comments post to the top not the bottom.

Hmmm.... you monitor what comments you let get posted?? Typical.

Oh brother.. .just more proof that the 'wacky' liberals are running scared.

Just returned from offsite meetings to these wonderful comments so I'll answer them all here.
MELISSA: I don't think the American voters are stupid I think they're vulnerable and the McCainies are exploiting that vulnerability.
JILL: I know. It's just unbelievable. Except it's happening.
CYNTHIA-- Interesting comment and interesting post, too
KAREN, JEN AND JUDY: I believe in the American voters - but how well they respond to a campaign depends on how it speaks to them Right now the Republicans are using the lowest common denominator - I'm hoping it can't work forever... it's getting a bit tired. Of course I'm watching cable all day so many voters aren't as sick of it yet as we junkies. We just have to hope the GET sick of it....

Judy in KY

Unfortunately, I don't think most voters are smarter than Rove and company think they are. At least where I live... people are eating this crap up and loving it!

Jen

I think the voters are smarter than Rove and co. think they are. At least I hope so.

Karen S.

Excellent, Excellent post. I'm linking to it.

Ha, while you were thinking of Oscar-calibre movies, I was thinking genre.

As in, McCain-Palin are GOP zombies from the Dawn of the Dead. Their ideas are DOA, their policies have no pulse.

Let's help the Republican ticket STAY dead.

Vote 'em down for good.

Jill

And this from McCain about Clinton and health care:


"McCain criticized Democratic contenders for offering what he called costly universal health-care proposals that require too much government regulation. While he said he had not studied Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's plan, he said it was "eerily reminiscent" of the failed plan she offered as first lady in the 1990s.

"I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," he said of her proposal."

See the rest here.

Melissa, Multitasking Mama

Couldn't have said it better myself- Sarah Palin is the scariest thing since Dick Cheney! What the heck are women thinking making her out to be some kind of superhero? She is a member of the NRA for heaven's sake! Even as a busy mom of three, one of which has special needs, you are not going to sway me by calling yourself a hockey mom and parading your family around. I vote on the issues and Obama has had my vote all along!!
