And what Senator Obama’s campaign does are two entirely separate matters. That’s the only conclusion I can draw from the horrendous hit job on Cindy McCain in this Sunday’s New York Times – a rag with which I would not even line my birdcage – out of respect for the bird dung!
Senator Obama’s thunderous silence on the subject has been quite revealing, particularly coming from the man who prattled about “my wife is off the table” when even the mildest criticism was expressed about his eternally rancorous spouse Michelle.
When the Times goes so far as to contact 16-year old high school classmates of the McCain children to dig up information on Cindy McCain, using Facebook, they really are going way too far. In fact, my personal opinion is that when Jodi Kantor contacted these under-16-year olds he crossed the line into downright creepy behavior. There is a difference between true journalism and yellow journalism. The Times apparently no longer knows the difference and its reporters have the morals of the worst alley cat in the most fetid and festering alleyway of the most seedy neighborhood in a Calcutta slum!
Finally – can we talk about the sheer weight of the moneys being spent to achieve this office. One needs to wonder – very seriously – who it is that is willing AND ABLE to spend $600 million to achieve a job that pays $400,000 per annum plus some juicy perks? There’s something seriously rotten in this campaign and it doesn’t have thing one to do with anyone named McCain or Palin. Chicago politics has run amok and we’re all going to suffer for it. I suspect the rat shelling out all the cheese is named Soros, but that's only my opinion. I could be wrong - but I doubt it.
