Interesting Statement of the Day

I can’t guarantee that I will always have an interesting news clip for the day. It’s really not the focus of this blog. But I couldn’t resist sharing this one. This is a quote from John McCain regarding his shift from RNC activities to Hurricane Gustav duties:

“I pledge that tomorrow night, and if necessary, throughout our convention … to act as Americans, not Republicans, because America needs us now no matter whether we are Republican or Democrat,” he said.

Sure it may be feisty of me, but I feel like this statement implies that the previous reaction to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans was the Republican reaction–in other words–the Republican reaction to natural disasters that affect thousands of minority brothers and sisters is to not react at all–or react rather slowly because their core constituents are surely not in the 9th Ward.

And this is the man some people want to lead our country? Things that make you go “Hmmm…”
