I know there are those (the liberal media, for example) who are doing the happy dance because Florida has been “called” for McCain. Yet, only about 50% of the vote is in – the absentee ballots are not yet counted and the margin between he and Romney is a mere 4 points.
Is it me, or does it feel like there are those who are trying to convince us that he is the foregone conclusion and so we’d better get used to it? Well, I feel that way.
And too, let us not forget just how much confusion, hanging chads, pregnant chads and unreadable ballots Florida seems to have in its past. And don’t forget about how the press likes to call elections too early in Florida. It must be some karmic thing about that state. Perhaps it’s the fact that people have insisted on inhabiting a swamp that nature is constantly trying to take back. Or maybe it’s the humidity that just gets newscasters all soft in the brain. I dunno. But I do find it incredibly interesting that no matter what people think have happened in Florida it almost always turns out to be something different.
As for you Citizen McCain – you could no more unite the party than you could hold your temper at poker game where you were losing. You are no standard bearer for anyone, much less conservatives.
And to any conservatives out there who truly believe that voting for McCain is somehow different from voting for Hillary Clinton – wake up. Now, would be a really good time.
