Template conservative blog post

I am not a close observer of politics, but I've been casually following this race. And I've decided to support John McCain and Sarah Palin, because Barack Obama is [something unbelievably inflammatory based on a long-debunked e-mail forward from my uncle] who will take America [into whatever communist leader's colon my pastor said he would]. McCain, on the other hand, is a war hero and Palin is real, just like actual women I know down at the Wal-Mart.

I realize that some of you might disagree with me or want to tell me where I'm wrong. Don't. No comments, please. Yes, I've given this post a provocative title, I've specifically targeted this message to some of you and have left the comment option open, but that's only because I want you to know how I feel. I don't want to engage in a debate or anything else that might lead to bad feelings or defensiveness. So just know that Barack Obama is [something not socially acceptable to say since 1964] and that anyone who supports him or doubts Sarah Palin is [anti-American garbage].

Sincerely,
[Friend you used to respect]

Come on, Ian. The far-left has their lemmings just like the far right.

It's kind of unfair to say that's a template conservative post...that's more like the sheeple on the far-right which do not represent conservatives anymore than far-left represents liberals as a whole.

Rhonda - Oh yes, we could make a day of this. Maybe a week.

Jason - Well, about the lemmings, yeah. But that isn't what I'm trying to emphasize here. What I've noticed just among my friends - and this is usually the case in election years - is that the ones who were on the fence and go GOP always get really defensive about their choice, and ask no one to even talk to them about it. If any Democrat/Obama supporters are skittish about their choice, then they aren't mentioning it in the first place. By saying they're voting McCain and then requesting no comments, they're saying they can dish it out but can't take it. It amounts to taunting. And it's very telling about their own security regarding their pick.

Oh, I'm with you there. If you're going to post an opinion and then not let someone respond it's almost a waste of pixels on the screen.
