Love these articles:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/cenk-uygur/why-doesnt-john-mccains-a_b_117811.html Is an article by Cenk Uygur about the John McCain affair and why no one talks about it. Well said and check out the links he includes. Lexie sent it to me, and I’m just now getting around to reading it.
And this one http://www.salon.com/opinion/keillor/2008/08/06/mccain/index.html is one of Garrison Keillor’s articles about the current campaign to target Senator Obama as an elitist in spite of their backgrounds. Lori sent it to me and it’s very well-said.
Really makes you think about perception. Why do we form these views? Is it because Obama is intelligent that he can be painted as an elitist? And is it easier to think badly about Edwards because he is young and attractive and McCain looks like the grandfather of a toad? Is it easier to forgive a money hungry old man?
I don’t know. But read the articles when you can and let me know.
