Well, at least I am–mostly. Just a few thoughts that kept me up for a good 5 or 10 minutes last night…
John McCain’s speech was pretty non-eventful until the end. He tried to do something that is very effective when he was speaking over the applause and hoots. While it was effective, if he had a powerful voice like Obama or a passionate delivery like, uh, Lou Holtz(?) it would have been even more effective.
As far as Cindy McCain’s speech goes…families are off-limits to bloggers, right? Fair enough. I’ll save it for Twitter.
Although I disagree with him on more than I agree with him, I think John McCain is an honorable guy as far as politicians go. And I’ll take a guy who suffered through 5 years of physical, mental, and emotional hell in service to our country over a guy who pads his resume with “Community Organizer”. Seriously? Really? That would be like me interviewing for a network security job with a bank and boasting about my vast experience setting my MySpace profile to “private”.
I still haven’t decided who I’m voting for, but I know it won’t be Obama or McCain. And before you leave a comment about “throwing your vote away”, remember that I live in a state that is solid Republican and won’t be changing this time around. Besides, I think voting for one candidate even though you like another one better is the real definition of throwing your vote away.
