For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Another One Under The Bus...

Okay, the comments were a little on the heavy side. But for McCain to disassociate himself from the speaker, Bill Cunningham, looked to me like yet another attempt by McCain to throw another conservative under the bus in order to kiss up to the liberal MSM. And the main complaint about the comments? The fact that Cunningham used Obama's first, middle, and last name: Barack HUSSEIN Obama. So what? It's his name. Get over it. Don't like it? Change it! Won't change it? Live with it!

Laura Ingraham offered listeners a chance today to call in with one-word comments summing up McCain's response. Most used words like "disappointing," "typical," etc... If I hadn't been listening on XM Radio, on which her program is delayed 'til noon to 3pm, I would've phoned in with the word "obsequious." But even that wouldn't have done it for me. It would have to be a word I can't seem to think of that couples the meaning of obsequious with that of the urge a dog has to return to his own vomit. Guess I'll have to make one up.

Hasn't McCain learned from the NY Times that the honeymoon has ended? He is, for all intents and purposes, the Republican nominee. And they will now crucify him for it.
