Remember when a friend of yours was so excited to introduce you to his new girlfriend, or her new husband? And you met them, saw them together ... and proceeded to get a twisted, sinking, sick feeling in your stomach, BECAUSE they reminded you of their previous love. The one who so let them down, so hurt them deeply and did irreparable damage to your dear friend.
That's how I'm feeling for my Republican "friends" as their new guy comes into the picture. Some are already married to him, but for those who are just in the dating phase... look again.
Last week it was McSame, this week's message seems to be McChange. Really? Change? John McCain?
In a divided country, with the stakes so high, I dare to say that even Republicans deserve better than McCain/Palin. I am hopeful that they are more intelligent and concerned than their candidates think.
So IF there are any Republicans reading this blog, I am concerned for your party and for your next relationship. I know that the previous one had to be disappointing, had to hurt and was even a bit embarrassing. So don't let this next one be a rebound relationship that you (and the world) will live to regret. I can tell you, you have had some bad luck at picking the best candidate. Perhaps this is a time for an arranged marriage, a matchmaker called in to point you in the better direction. You know what they say, sometimes those that care about you, know what's best for you.
