From a reader who is not fond of John McCain, noticing his contrast with Romney with his state-specific tailored economic stimulus proposals:
I can’t stand McCain.
But dang if he doesn’t go into Iowa and say [rude dismissive phrase] and your corn subsidies….go into Michigan and say [rude dismissive phrase] and your bloated auto industry…go into Florida and say [rude dismissive phrase] and your national catastrophe fund.
There is a lot about McCain that is not straight talk.
But when he does straight talk — it’s the straightiest straight talk you will find.
And that’s part of the problem.
Like when he gets to, “[rude dismissive phrase] and your global warming doubts.”
Of course, the same could be said about immigration, tax cuts, campaign finance reform, gang of 14, etc. All of which I disagree with and for which exists a strong case that each could do damage to America. But if someone controls the levers of power with a like-minded congress and tries to implement wholesale policies to stop global warming?
I’m moving to rural Idaho, and stocking up on food, supplies and weapons.
