I guess that I should not be surprised these days that people can be mean. It was amazing to me to see some of the hatred coming across the blogs about John McCain's pick of Governor Sarah Palin. The hate from the left doesn't stop with her though. Apparently, they are enjoying millions of people being displaced from their homes.
I won't repeat the rumor mill and the disparaging remarks across the web about Sarah Palin. They are despicable. It should not surprise any of us that when you have no actual arguments, you resort to name-calling. Some have asked what type of mother is she for running for Vice-President. Regardless of your party affiliation, this should feel like a slap in the face to most women. Has Barack Obama been asked what type of father he is for campaigning and leaving his children? I doubt the thought has ever crossed any one's mind to ask.
I won't touch the slander that is being made of Sarah Palin. What I will touch is the reprehensible remarks of those on the left about the approaching Hurricane, Gustav. Does it surprise you that documentary film maker, Michael Moore laughed while saying, "I was just thinking, this Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven. To have it planned at the same time – that it would actually be on its way to New Orleans for day one of the Republican Convention, up in the Twin Cities – at the top of the Mississippi River.”
The hate doesn't end there. Former National Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Don Fowler, and Congressman John Spratt of South Carolina were taped on a flight returning from the Democratic National Convention making fun of Governor Palin and laughing about the Hurricane. Fowler said that God was on the side of the Democrats. See the video below:
Why is it that some Democrats only find God when they are using it against Republicans and conservatives?
On the other side of the aisle, the Republicans are having a lovefest and guess what? We have asked some Democrats, Independents, and of course women to join the party. The right is excited and they are putting their money where their mouth is. Since Governor Palin's announcement, the McCain campaign received almost 7 million dollars in online donations.
John McCain has seen a growing number of supporters at his rally events. Saturday in Washington, PA brought over 10,000 while Sunday's event in Missouri had over 17,000 supporters. Don't underestimate this excitement. The word about Palin is growing and she has generated more interest in an election year that could have been one-sided. Yes, it's a lovefest on the right and never-ending hate on the left.
