    Look, I don't agree with McCain's policies, but he and his wife adopted a child.

    My brother and I are adopted children.  No one who adopts can be just horrible people.

    I know it's fun to mock the McCains, but I actually hope someone makes a effort to point out how so many children in this country need and want loving homes.

    I only wish the McCains would take the opportunity to promote gay adoption, too.  

    This is one issue about which I am not a partisan.

    A hard on doesn't count as personal growth...

    •  It's not policies, it's about his "base" (1+ / 0-)

      McCain is trying to paint Obama as a scary black foreigner who's willing to sell out our country to get elected.

      I don't see how he can bring his adopted child on stage without opening up another can of worms.

      (Personally, I admire that act of his. But I also think there would be a backlash with the core of voters he needs to keep to have any chance of winning this election.)

        Their base can be a bunch of dipshits to say the least.  

        If the McCains do what they should do, and frankly as I hope they do, they'll tell those asshats to shove it where the sun don't shine and proudly introduce his entire family to the world.  If they do that, this girl's hat will be publicly tipped to them.  :-)
