McCain '08: Like Hope, Only Different

I am fully prepared to say that John McCain is the least objectionable of the Republican candidates. But when you look at his career and contrast his decisions and his statements against those of other people whose lives we have celebrated recently (here and here), you really get a sense of just how abysmal a candidate he really is, and how utterly without hope the Republican party is.

Anyway, this is pretty good stuff. It made me laugh and cry at the same time. You'll figure it out.

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be an issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) live earth is also asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw a poll on www.EarthLab.com that says people care a lot about what their next leader thinks of global warming. Does anyone know of another poll or other results about this subject?

Here is the page where I saw the EarthLab poll: http://www.earthlab.com/life.aspx. This is a pretty legit website; they are endorsed by Al Gore and the alliance for climate protection and they have a carbon footprint calculator. Does anyone have a strong opinion about this like I do? No matter what your political affiliation is or who you vote for this is an important issue for our environment, our economy and for homeland security.
