Thank goodness….

The United States got it right….

I think that the selection of Sarah Palin damaged McCain’s campaign more than helped.  Most Americans saw through the Palin excitement and realized that she was greatly unqualified.  Sarah Palin gave only 3 press interviews – to Biden’s 100 during the election… Here’s why.

I can’t believe that so many conservatives compare Palin to Obama… astounding.

I talked with my mom on the phone last night.  She lives in Milwaukee – arguably the most segregated city in the United States.  She says that racial tensions there are very high right now, and that there is a lot of fear.  That astounds me.  I guess I didn’t think of that living over here in GJ – we definitely don’t have enough diversity here to create tension.  People here are more worried about their guns…. My future father-in-law purchased a very large gun safe for us for Christmas.

Yes, we’ve come a long way, but we still have a long way to go.
