Trying to get a handle on how the campaign so far is playing with “the base,” I sent an inquiry to a social conservative activist, and got this reply:
Obama is so detestable that I have resolved to get drunk and vote for McCain, along with Ann [Coulter] of course. As the completely ignorant Obama followers have started to attack me as well for opposing him . . . I have been forced to see McCain’s positive points when they rip on him. It’s been a strange election cycle, feeling myself compelled to defend people I recently ranted against due to the utter stupidity and evil of the Obama cult: Hillary and now McCain. I am still hopeful that Mitt could be the VP pick, as well, which will bring some excitement for my side back into my life.
“Get Drunk and Vote for McCain” — bumper stickers should be printed immediately!
