Earth to Joe Beercan

The GOP continues its "regular guy" approach, despite years of ignoring the regular guy in favor of the top 1% of the population. It presents a guy with 9 homes and 13 cars as Everyman, because the other guy, born to a single mom, managed to drag himself to Harvard, where he ran the Law Review, and managed to defy all expectations and topple the mighty Clintons. How can we trust someone like that?

Bob Herbert has a message for you:

For the nitwits who vote for the man or woman they’d most like to have over for dinner, or hang out at a barbecue with, I suggest you take a look at how well your 401(k) is doing, or how easy it will be to meet the mortgage this month, or whether the college fund you’ve been trying to build for your kids is as robust as you’d like it to be.

There's really nothing wrong with looking around and deciding to do what's best for you and your children. Some of these issues may be more important than whether or not gay people get married, or whatever nonsense McCain and Palin are spewing this week, when you get right down to it.
