Don't miss these: 10/29/08 — PART TWO

Gosh, there are so many great (and/or funny) things still popping, and I don't want any to get buried. So check part one, and then check these:
  • I start with a point I thought worth lifting and featuring from the previous update — More News You Won't Hear: Jewish "pro-choice" Democrat woman for McCain. Do not miss this, it is very well-written and well-reasoned. Here are a few pulls: "I now know that defeating global terrorism is the single most important issue of our time. ...As I said to the PBS interviewer but what was edited out, 'my daughters won't have reproductive or many other rights if they are dead or burka'ed.'" "...Obama's pastor scares me a whole lot more than anything Sarah Palin has ever said or done" (see fuller quotation under the Wright video post below). "So this Jewish pro-choice Democrat is going to vote for McCain/Palin because they know who are our friends and who are our enemies. And they are prepared to do what is needed to each."
  • This one's just funny, mostly. Obama muffs a reference to a black sitcom. Still... imagine if McCain or Palin had done it? Do you think we'd be hearing about that? Ohh, yeah. Definitely. (Before I could post this, Michelle Malkin also caught and Malkinized it.)
  • Dick Morris (who was guilty of helping The Nameless One gain office) and Eileen McGann suggest that undecideds may well settle on McCain.
  • Poster Biochemky assembles some quotations as to why some blacks will be voting for McCain.
  • Michael Medved says that values voters may bring a pro-McCain surprise on election day. They certainly should. I hope Medved's right that "Obama efforts at “Christian outreach” have largely failed, recognized as a phony, manipulative and, ultimately, insulting strategy. They have been "insulting," yet a smattering of commenters at various Christian blogs indicate tangly, emotionalistic thought-processes.
  • Jennifer Rubin offers ten reasons why McCain could still win.

Hey Dan, dunno if you've seen this or not.

Hillary's PUMAs may have a surprise in store for O in Pennsylvania, Ohio and elsewhere.

Pam Meister says that some female conservative pundits (Noonan and Parker) are like Sneetches.

Oops, unfortunate link to a UU site.
Read the poem, ignore the rest of that web page.

FWIW, at our women's study today I was disheartened at the number of women who knew nothing about FOCA. They seemed barely aware of the election at all!!!

Thankfully, after I shared a little of what the implications of FOCA are for Christian taxpayers and medical workers, let alone the unborn, their eyebrows nearly flew off the top of their foreheads.

I hope and pray Medved is right on. There are a lot of Christians who are just getting wind of this thing.

Then again, I keep thinking about all the (so-called) evangelical Christians in America in 1937 and on as Hitler was quietly slaughtering the Jews....

Thanks for the link to the article about the Jew for McCain. I sent it to my Jewish, liberal, pro-choice, Democrat friend (revenge for the Palin/Obama Dancing with the Stars e-mail). She's in her 70's and a little jumpy-hyper with the mouse sometimes, so maybe it will get forwarded to everyone in her address book - her family and all her 70+ Jewish friends :)
