Post-Election Musings

John McCain's speech was excellent. Genuine, moving, inspiring even.

If he'd taken that approach all along - rather than the riot-inciting taunting that became the fashion after Palin came on board - it would've been a much closer race.

I couldn't agree more. It made me suddenly remember that way back at the very beginning he was one of the few Republicans that I thought I could consider seriously.

Okay, he was the only one.

I said that same thing to the wife when McCain was done speaking. I normally consider myself a Republican, but just couldn't vote for this new McCain I saw in the election. He was a very different person. His speech reminded me why he is a true American hero and servant.

I just posted about that on my blog, too. I voted for him because I felt he was still "in there" somewhere and I was glad to see him in that amazing speech last night.

Yeah, but where is the 'off' switch for all the people he got REALLY riled up...hmmm...

I totally agree. I was on the fence for a while, but his campaign went to a very bad place, for me. The same place that we've been the last 8 years.

I'm just glad it's all over now!
