I told you all that once political season started I would blog more! On a quick side note, if any one is curious, we found a place to live. I will post about that later.
I am concerned about McCain's choice of a running mate. I haven't really poked around for much information, and what little information I have gotten have been from Internet news sites (like Yahoo news, I just haven't had the time to really sit down and read much). But, from what I understand, Palin is really not qualified to be the V.P.! I mean, for one, she is young and inexperienced. She is only 44 and has only been in a major public office for 2 years. That's nothing! That's hardly enough time to figure out what the heck is going on. Secondly, many of the sites I have read have simply been talking about what a good choice she is because of her pro-life stance. One site applauded her for keeping her baby even after she found out he had Downs Syndrome. That's awesome. I'm all for pro-life and not killing our children (especially for dumb reasons like Downs Syndrome), but lots of people have that stance. Heck, I'm pro-life and I would never abort a child, but that doesn't make me qualified to be our V.P. (and with McCain's age, possible President).
Of course, I still have to read a lot more and do a lot more research, but I feel like McCain kind of blew it here. I just wish that the Evangelical majority was more concerned with the bigger picture than simply the abortion debate. But, that is another discussion for another time.
I'm off to class (yes, Saturday class on a holiday weekend...grrrr...).
