The subject I'm about to broach will be over quick. I will start by saying that I am not anti-McCain. I have nothing but respect for the guy. At this point in America's struggle, though, I don't believe he is the best candidate. That, folks, is a topic for another time. I just wanted to state this before I began my short range assault on Sarah Palin.
My ire all started and is currently centralized around one remark I read of hers. This is coming from an article by Gene Johnson of the Associated Press. "Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a "task that is from God." (09/03/2008). Give me a break! I'm not even going to sit here and vent about this statement. Now what I'm about to say is open to debate and I am by no means condoning any attacks on our country. 9/11 was devastating and by all means a national tragedy. And I would say this even if the candidate was a democrat, republican, or from another party. I am simply going to give you these last thoughts to ponder, call it a night, and perhaps return with the more light hearted pop culture articles I usually write. Here we go: Did Osama Bin Laden not say the same thing after the 9/11 attacks? If we were on a task from God, and Bin Laden was on a task from God, are both countries freedom fighters or terrorists?
