Couldn’t Say it Better Myself
And when I can’t, I let the other guy/gal say it. Curtis Lowe fisks a bit of Obama’s acceptance speech, and does it WELL in All This and a Toaster Too. A taste:
OK: This one paragraph I will fisk:
For over two decades, (McCain’s) subscribed to that old, discredited Republican philosophy, give more and more to those with the most and hope that prosperity trickles down to everyone else. (No, it isn’t given to them and they aren’t “lucky.” The vast majority of “the ones with the most” earned it through ingenuity, risk-taking, hard work and sacrifice – and they are the business owners, large and small, that employ the bulk of Americans – asshole).
In Washington, they call this the Ownership Society (Exactly! As in private property ownership – the cornerstone of all rights-based and law-based societies and the antithesis of what you believe in and propose)
Especially the last line. Yeah, I’m glad McCain chose Palin, too, but Curtis is pretty much right.
