I walked along the marsh today enjoying all the birds, and watching the bicyclists whiz by. What an array of legs. It is hard to understand prejudice when one sees so many colors of legs pump by.
The Economist has an interesting perspective on the election. It came out before Barack spoke and McCain made his announcment, but says if would love to see McCain go back to who he once was. Interesting in light of his vice-presidential choice.
From the Economist:
McCain "needs to spend less time assuring evangelicals that he agrees with them about abortion and gay marriage, and more time having another look at his tax plans. The old John McCain attacked Mr. Bush for his tax cuts, which he said were unaffordable. The new John McCain not only wants to make the Bush tax cuts permanent, but wants to add to them by virtually eliminating estate tax (something that would benefit a tiny number of very rich families, like his own.) He also proposes to slash corporation tax. People on middle incomes would see little benefit. Independent analysts agree tht Mr. McCain's plans would increase an already huge deficit."
This is fascinating.
"According to the Hill, a Washington newspaper, Kucinich in his speech, wanted to say of Republicans that "they're asking for four more years - in a just world, they'd get ten to 20."
Too bad it was censored. I thought treason was punishable by death. He was being very kind.
