So the McCain campaign unleashed yet another over-the-top venom spewing lie on the public today. If John McCain equates teaching our children to protect themselves from inappropriate sexual behavior to "sex education" and hence denounces Obama for it, I suppose we can follow the accusation all the way through. Let's give it a try, shall we? If McCain doesn't believe we should be teaching our children what is inappropriate and to protect themselves from predators is wrong, are we to conclude that John McCain supports pedophiles?

Well, the nature of a blog is that it is, at least at the onset of a post, a one-way deal. Here's what I hope you're thinking at this point, "Oh my goodness, that's just so over the top. You should be ashamed of yourself for suggesting such a thing!"

To which I would reply, "That, my friend, is exactly the point I'm trying to make."

I have two young children myself and I think the notion of not teaching them to report such behavior is reprehensible. Once again, shame on you, McCain/Palin. Your tactics are revolting and trite.

Hey Justin! I know we don't see eye to eye on the political scene right now, but I thought you would like this to fuel your arguments: http://www.bauer-power.net/2008/09/vp-candidate-got-her-yahoo-email-hacked.html

You probably already knew about it though...

Yeah, that was a pretty amusing story. I don't have much to expound upon that one, other than to reiterate the concerns one might have about an elected official using a free webmail solution for official matters. Now if only there had been some risqué pictures of her or letters of an illicit tryst in her outbox...
