It’s looks like John McCain’s radical pick for VP has vaulted, nay, catapulted his campaign to the top of the “change” platform. Gone is the idea that experience matters, now it’s all about being crazy and different.
My congrats to McCain, who had experience as a POW, for catching up to the main theme for what Americans want. Yes, things need to change.
With Palin on the ticket, McCain has guaranteed that something will change with this election. New ground will be crossed, be it in the form of Obama or Palin. This was a masterful political move on his part. Truly, it was. Now both sides are running for history. And for change.
So then the next obvious question, which won’t really ever be addressed on corporate TV, as it would take too long to go beyond one word analysis….what is the change offered?
Obama/Biden Change: Appoint Supreme Court Justices that will outlaw torture, once and for all (except on black ops).
McCain/Palin Change: Appoint Supreme Court Justices that outlaw abortion, once and for all (except on back alleys).
Obama/Biden Change: Spend 8 of the next 10 years working hard to replace oil and create a post-carbon economy with renewable fuels. This will save our limited natural resources for future generations.
McCain/Palin Change: Spend 8 of the next 10 years drilling as hard as possible to prop up oil companies and extend our carbon economy. This will steal our limited natural resources from future generations.
Obama/Biden Change: Spend the money necessary to give every child in every school every chance to succeed.
McCain/Palin Change: Spend only the money necessary to teach every child in every school that evolution is evil and God did it.
4. Foreign Policy
Obama/Biden Change: End the war in Iraq, Get Bin Laden. Work together with the world to face threats.
McCain/Palin Change: Start the war in Iran. Get Obama. Work together to make threats to the world.
5. Tax Policy
Obama/Biden Change: Move the tax policy back to the one that helped build the largest and most powerful middle class in the world, with the most wealth and the most people.
McCain/Palin Change(?): Extend the Bush tax policy that helped build the smallest and most distinct upper class in history, with the most wealth and the fewest people.
