How the McCain/Palin ticket endorsed Barack Obama.

Posted by ALmod on September 9, 2008

Well, it seems that change isn’t such a bad idea, after all.  We’d been hearing the “c” word for years from the Obama campaign, and then suddenly the Republicans started realizing that the message was working.  People are sick of the way things are headed.

Republicans scoffed at Obama’s lack of experience in politics until they realized that that very “lack of experience” is what Americans are looking for.  They want an outsider.  The insiders haven’t exactly made their lives better.

So then McCain is championed as “change” despite his recent history of doing just that– changing from bucking the system to voting in lockstep with the very same people who have run this country into the ground.  And to combat that whole “Washington insider” image, they slap on some “outsider” window dressing in the form of an unknown Alaskan governor as a running mate.

They say that immitation is the highest form of flattery.  And by trying to immitate the Obama campaign message, the McCain campaign has in fact all but admitted that Obama is exactly what the people want and need.
