Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

On Christine O'Donnell and playing politics to win...

Today as I came home from the store I'm listening to Michael Medved who is opining on the latest debate shown between Christine O'Donnell and Mike Coots for the Senate seat in Delaware.

I like listening to Medved, he's a common sense type who doesn't engage in too much ridicule for it's own sake when speaking of his ideological opponents. There's some invective but not as much as say, Michael Savage. Medved is pretty mellow, comparatively speaking.

So he's taking O'Donnell apart for her less than polished performance. Evidently she uttered a few gaffes, laid herself open to ridicule by talking heads of the liberal MSM. Medved was fairly disgusted, saying he agreed with her answers in principle but they were in no way helping her campaign. He feels she's already lost.

FWIW, I'm sick and tired of politicians who take the safe, "middle-of-the-road" approach. I want whoever is in office to be blunt, honest and holding nothing back for the sake of expediency.

I want someone who calls a spade a spade. End of story.

So maybe the woman is as dumb as a box of rocks. Maybe the people of Delaware will run from her like six year olds from a peer with "cooties". Maybe it'll be deserved.

But right now, based solely on her unvarnished, truthful comments I'm hoping for a landslide win. Just to cause the talking heads on both sides of the aisle to STFU. Just to prove that a fair amount of folk want honesty before political "nuance".

So if that makes me a Neanderthal, well now everyone will say my avatar fits me.

Screw it.

Was it Thatcher who said, "Those who stayed at the middle of the road, gets hit from both sides?"

She isn't polished. She isn't a professional speaker. She isn't a professional politician. She blew a couple of answers. I hope she wins. I hope the people of her state realize that voting in a Dem is voting in more massive debt and government control of their lives. We will see on November 2nd.

Rick, might have been. Whoever the author is, it's definetly true.

Arby, for blowing answers and sounding a fool there isn't anyone in the class of Joe Biden. THAT idiot managed to get elected where he's one heartbeat away from the Presidency! I think all the talking heads are pissed at O'Donnell for the other reasons you state.
