Here is a woman, Jill Dorson, being widely quoted today who shot herself in both feet in a fit if pique because McCain picked a young beautiful woman she couldn't stomach. Rather than face up to her own prejudices she blames McCain and anyone else handy.The comments at the end of this article are very telling. I would say 95% saw through her foolish shortcomings and pointed them out to her. She still doesn't get it and probably never will.
Why I Regret Voting For President ObamaBy Jill Dorson
I am a registered Independent. I voted for Barack Obama. And for that, I am sorry.
I'm not sorry for you. I'm sorry for me. Because I voted for Obama for me, not for you. I voted for hope and change and all the intangibles that Obama was peddling in the wake of the financial crisis, Sarah Palin, Sept. 11 and all the other ills that shook our country in the last decade. I wanted something new. Something different. What I got was, I suppose, exactly what I voted for - a spin doctor. And not a very good one at that.
Before John McCain unwittingly picked a tabloid-magazine cover girl for his running mate, I was leaning toward going Republican this time around. I did the second time Bush was on the ballot and I very nearly did the first time, too. But as soon as Palin climbed out of her igloo and onto the national scene, well, there was no turning back for me.
You see, I felt my choice was to risk McCain dropping dead and letting the world's most well-known hockey mom run this country, or to believe that Obama would surround himself with educated people and that he was smart enough to take their advice.
