Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Most loyal readers know that the main reasons I support John McCain can be found here. Namely, that John McCain is NOT Barack Obama.

A close second, however, is that John McCain will NOT gut our critically important missile defense program, which just scored another in a string of successes.

Obama, on the other hand, promises to “cut investments in unproven missile defense systems” which is both ignorant and dangerous. Missile defense is the most important U.S. strategic military effort, in my opinion, and we cannot afford four years of mothballing this program. That money should not be spread around, in fact it should be increased.

And by “little” I mean small-brained. Hats off to our friends at the LCDC for taking on the unenviable task of representing those who can be fooled into voting on the wrong day.

As one of the commenters hints, maybe we should ask whether such people should be voting at all.

But it does make sense for the LCDC to take this seriously because we know that anyone who can be fooled into voting on Wednesday is going to vote Democrat.

UPDATE: David responds

Hats off to our civic-minded friends over at NoVA Townhall for helping to publicize Republican attempts at voter suppression. We deeply appreciate their assistance in this serious matter.

Voter suppression is a federal crime.

Glad to be of assistance. As always, we seek first to promote bipartisanship and brotherhood.

Wizbang’s DJ Drummond has a great post dissecting the latest strange numbers from Gallup.

This is for the benefit of the “undecideds” and any sensible folks who are planning to vote for Barack Obama.

If you have not yet gotten the full measure of the Democrat candidate for president, recall (in the left sidebar) that he believes religion and gun ownership are signals of despair. If that is not enough to convince you not to vote for him, consider the mindset that would cause him to say this:

“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK”

And if THAT is not enough to send a shudder up your spine about Obama’s vision for America, then have a listen to this interview from January: Obama promising to bankrupt the coal industry.

A staple of the Obama economic plan has been increased taxes on the “rich”, or those earning $250K or more, and providing tax cuts to 95% of Americans workers.

Joe Biden then told us “rich” was those making more than $150K a year :

Former Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson recently gave us yet another perspective on Obama’s “spread the wealth” plan :

The bar is getting awfully low on the definition of “rich” under Obama’s economic plan. As each day goes by, more and more hardworking middle class Americans are being told by Obama and his party that they too have silver spoons in their mouths. That they too are among America’s rich, and will pay more taxes.

I don’t believe this is the change that they need.

The Obama/Biden ticket has been relentless with their criticism of John McCain and his association with former lobbyists. They might wish to rethink some of this rhetoric :

WASHINGTON — As Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama targets his Republican rival Sen. John McCain for hiring former lobbyists to work on his campaign, a key member of Obama’s campaign is paying a Washington lobbyist for legal advice: his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden.

Lobbyist William Oldaker continues to represent the Delaware Democrat in his simultaneous bid for Senate re-election, serving as legal counsel just as he has for Biden’s campaigns for the past 25 years.

The Center for Public Integrity has referred to Oldaker as “a rainmaker” for his ability to represent his clients with Congressional lawmakers. Oldaker’s client list includes the tobacco, oil, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as Native American gambling interests.

Some pretty big guns working on Biden’s Senate re-election campaign. Guess Joe doesn’t share the same level of certainty as some posters here toward the upcoming election.

Biden waging stealth re-election campaign

After failing to discredit Joe the Plumber in the media, another icon emerges. This time in support of the Obama/Biden ticket, Abu The Terrorist :

Report: Al Qaeda Web Video Calls for ‘Humiliation’ of GOP, Bush

An Internet video posting of an Al Qaeda leader shows the commander calling for President Bush and the Republicans to be “humiliated,” Reuters reports.

“O God, humiliate Bush and his party, O Lord of the Worlds, degrade and defy him,” Abu Yahya al-Libi said at the end of a sermon.

The remarks from the commander, believed to be living in Afghanistan or Pakistan, are the first from a top Al Qaeda leader referring to the U.S. presidential election.

Thanks for yet one more reminder why we need John McCain.
