    You just have more of an uphill battle than many of us.  The fight goes on in all corners of the globe, to say nothing of every town, city, county and state in this country. We're realistic about your chances, but would never dismiss your efforts.  At least, most of us.

    That being said, your gov. is not gonna be the VP pick, I don't think.

        (and one of my cousins is an avid reader of yours, BTW).  One thing I noticed when I visited a few weeks back was that there were quite a few Obama for President signs and no McCain ones.  I found it interesting because Obama's support in KY was so low.  Any thoughts?

        Turn ons: progressives, Democrats with spines Turn offs: conservatives, people named Bush, John McCain

          Allow me to by cynical here, but a lot of the people who will vote for McCain here in Kentucky don't really like John McCain all that much.  Some of them hate his guts and would rather vote for the looniest of right wing whackjobs.  Others are Democrats who don't like McCain for one reason or another.

          But they dislike black people a lot more.  You know that 15% of people who believe that Obama is a Muslim?  Based on my conversations with voters, they all live here.  I know a lot of people, even Democrats, who have said that they would vote for McCain because they didn't want a Muslim president -- and refused to listen to debunkings of the Muslim smear.  I have also heard the "N" word more often in the past six months than I have heard in years.


          You can have your "Under God" back when I get my "Liberty and Justice For All" back.
