McCain & Milf '08

I have to admit, I didn't come up with that, but I laughed out loud when I saw it at first. So, lets be honest, I think that it is what at least some of the guys are thinking.

Will this mean a bit of difference in the long run? Probably not (it shouldn't) but it will be very interesting to watch how it all plays out. From what I have heard on the radio and on TV, voters go either one of two ways. Either they applaud McCain for his very progressive choice, or they chastise him for so obviously trying to go after the Hillary voters. I think that my friend Caroline said it best when she said "I don't care, I'm still not voting for McCain". I think that probably sums up my thoughts as well.

I will say that I think that it is very sad that so much focus has been placed on her family life. None of the other candidates have had to put up with any of the types of questions that she has had to answer. For example, can she still be a good VP while raising 5 kids - one of which is special needs. The answer can be debated, but Obama certainly hasn't had to put up with these questions - neither has McCain - who has SEVEN kids. But, as stated before, that still won't get me her vote :)

On a side note, Nick sent me this VERY funny John Stewart / Colbert clip about Palin.
