John McCain poorly read the teleprompter speech last evening, but that was not unexpected. Something about Sarah Palin's nose caught my attention. He read it as if it were a book report in front of the class with little expression; one could have easily dozed off.
The content was not much more than a rehash of everything we already know about him and his beliefs: drilling our way out of the energy crisis, God, lowering taxes [on the rich], despising regulations, hating unions, breaking-up of public schools, aggressive foreign policy, strict-interpretation Federal judges, more foreign markets, more war, soaring debt...
Nothing new. Saw all of that for the past 8 years.
I was very disappointed in him for having to tell us [again] his POW story. What a pander, what graveling. Apparently he was going after the 'poor me' voters. Pathetic at best.
So, the choice is clear: the same Bush stuff or a breath of fresh air. Open the windows, please.
