Let's hope this does lead to better candidates.

Here's a public link to my Facebook photo album of the rally: http://minnesota.facebook.com/album....47&id=45809822

I'll throw up some pictures of the event in a little bit too.
Eh, I don't know. . .Deep tells me that young people getting excited about politics and you know getting involved and voting and researching the issues is on par with going to see Hannah Montana.

I guess his take is that all you silly overexcited youngsters should just stay home--your vote doesn't count anyway.

Have I got that right?

Yeah, I mean, what was I thinking, getting my young head involved in the grown-up issues...

Almost back on topic: Can someone 'splain to me why McCain is pissing off "conservatives"?

I mean, he hates the gays, thinks my uterus is his beeswax, and wants the war to continue. What's the issue?

He loves dem immigrants? Campaign finance reform left a bad taste in their mouth? He's against drilling in Alaska?

"Restrict freedom of speech during elections"

What in the world do they mean by that? Campaign finance reform?

I was wondering about that too.

More Republican hatred of McCain.

Quote:
And that last point is why – be prepared for this, folks – I would not in any circumstances vote for John McCain, not if either Hillary or Obama were the alternative. Evil is safer than crazy. Leftie, amateur inexperience is safer than crazy. So I agree with Ann Coulter who says:

"I'd rather deal with President Hillary than with President McCain. With Hillary, we'll get the same ruinous liberal policies with none of the responsibility."

How in the world can the Republican Party get saddled with a nutcase wack job who knows nothing about economics, is so anti-capitalist he uses "profit" as a term of derision, has never run a business or had any job outside of government, will raise taxes, is so stupid that he believes "stopping global warming" is worth destroying the American economy, won't drill ANWR, won't appoint strict constructionist justices, won't protect marriage, will give amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens, is beloved by the New York Times and lives in a delusionary world of vanity and rage?

Rush is right. A McCain presidency will be the destruction of the Republican Party. It needs to be rebuilt, not wiped out with the field clear for the fascists of the left to consolidate power and eliminate freedom.
