Gloves off

At the fundraiser I attended yesterday, Palin promised that McCain was listening to the repeated request that he “take the gloves off.”  Her promise was good, and he was listening:

Finally! Let’s hope that this same McCain shows up at tomorrow’s debate.

Lisa Schiffren also has some good ideas about how to keep the pressure. Now is not the time to give up. That’s what they want, not what we need.  We need to ignore their shout-outs about McCain’s defeat, and press on to victory.  (A word that, as Palin says, Obama uses only with regard to himself and not ever with regard to America.)

    One of my all time favorite posters was the one showing one vulture saying to another, “Patience, hell, I’m going to kill something.”

    Amen and Amen!

    I was seriously wondering whether Sen. McCain’s sense of personal honor would keep him from taking the utterly necessary step of questioning who it is, precisely, that the Democrats have nominated.

    I kept thinking of the Declaration of Independence. At the close of the document, the signers said “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” If I could sit down with Sen. McCain, I would respectfully assert that long ago he proved his commitment on the first two; but would ask whether his personal, sacred Honor was too high a price to pay to save this country from the pain and damage that an Obama presidency would bring.

    I feel much better now.

    I would ask McCain if he’s ready to repeat the error of Vietnam – that is, fighting a “limited” war. I thought he had since said that if we go to war, we should go with the intent to win, and do what’s necessary to win. Politicians held back the military in Vietnam…with disastrous results. McCain will have the same results if he uses the same methods.

    It’s about time we hear this, and in this tone. I feel so frustrated that he waited so looooooong before getting fired up like this. Go John! Go Sarah!
