Maybe it was Sarah Palin.
James Dobson, the fanatical Christian fundamentalist goofball who runs the massive monument to ignorance and superstition, Focus on the Family, has flip-flopped and said he will now vote for John McCain for prezident. Not so long ago he said, unequivocally, he would never vote for John McCain!
Why? Nothing has changed. McCain's still the same old guy he was before. He's still John McSame.
Could it have something to do with McCain's choice of the vapid Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate? Could Palin's opposition to abortion and homosexual rights be all that it took for Dobson to stagger into the McCain camp?
It is beyond comprehension that in this world with so many massive problems facing us nationally and globally, Dobson and hundreds of others of his ilk base their support of a political candidate on one or two issues - in Dobson's case, abortion and homosexuality.
Good people on all points of the political spectrum disagree on these issues. Furthermore, they are of minor significance when compared to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; or the threat that nuclear powers might decide to blow up the world; or in the face of Russia's seeming new belligerence; or in light of Bush's incredible missile posturing; or an economy down the toilet; or the refusal of the Bushites to so much as begin looking at alternative energy sources; or the threat of global warming, which in a few years, may make all the other threats moot...etc...
What is really sad is that millions of people will walk into the polling places on November 4 and, like the sheep they are, will punch the ballot as James Dobson's told them to do.
