It's clear from across the pond. Maybe we're too close?
America not quite at its best (final paragraph):
"What Mrs Palin does do, as a committed pro-lifer, is to ensure that the evangelical wing of the Republican party will turn out in their multitudes. Mr McCain has thus placed abortion, the most divisive cultural issue in America, at the centre of his campaign. His defenders claim that it is too big an issue to be ignored, that he has always opposed abortion, that culture wars are an inevitable part of American elections, and that it was only when he appointed Mrs Palin that the American public started to listen to him. All this is true: but the old Mr McCain, who derided the religious right as “agents of intolerance”, would not have stooped to that."
Reading the foreign press is a great way to step back and see the forest for the trees. Read it for yourself. From their point of view, it must look like "Inherit the Wind" is a current events documentary.
Thank god the GOP is there to protect the right-to-life of the HPV virus.
Catch you later.....
