Eau Claire Leader-Telegram. (I also posted it in GD-P, where it quickly dropped out of sight.)

Right on, John!

An acquaintance told me I need to support John McCain because he's right on the issues, while Barack Obama is all wet. Well, I did a little research, and I discovered my acquaintance knows what he's talking about. McCain really is right on the issues. Here's some of what I found out:

McCain has been right all along on the Iraq war. He was right when he agreed with Don Rumsfeld that the war would be over in three months with few casualties, and the Iraqis, overjoyed at being freed from Saddam's rule, would be strewing flower petals before our troops as they entered Baghdad. We all remember that glorious victory.

McCain was right when he agreed with President Bush's advisers that the war would cost us almost nothing because it could be financed with the proceeds from Iraqi oil.

McCain was right when he said we must be prepared to stay in Iraq a hundred years, and he is now right when he tells us that we should withdraw in 16 months.

McCain was right when he called for a modification in the Republican platform to allow abortion in cases of incest and rape, or to save the life of the mother. He is also correct in the firm stance he has recently taken against abortion under any circumstances.

McCain was right to support civil unions for gays. Thirty seconds later, he was right to oppose gay civil unions.

McCain was right to vote against veterans benefits, and he was right to immediately deny that he had done so.

I have seen the error of my ways. I'm turning in all my Obama campaign materials. John McCain's the man for me!
