Who do you want answering that phone at 3 a.m.?

Charles Krauthammer has some very good insights as to the mettle needed to be the next President.
Who do you want answering that phone at 3 a.m.? A man who's been cramming on these issues for the past year, who's never had to make an executive decision affecting so much as a city, let alone the world? A foreign policy novice instinctively inclined to the flabbiest, most vaporous multilateralism (e.g., the Berlin Wall came down because of "a world that stands as one"), and who refers to the most deliberate act of war since Pearl Harbor as "the tragedy of 9/11," a term more appropriate for a bus accident?

Or do you want a man who is the most prepared, most knowledgeable, most serious foreign policy thinker in the United States Senate? A man who not only has the best instincts but has the honor and the courage to, yes, put country first, as when he carried the lonely fight for the surge that turned Iraq from catastrophic defeat into achievable strategic victory?

I have spoken to many combat hardened veterans who seem to have the general concept of, "I was never as scared in combat as I am of the coming election." Something to think about.

What You Don't Know Can Hurt You

I just happened about a site called 2008 Election: Never Find Out. The site has many different videos, not Republican ads. It presents many things to question about Obama. All things being equal, it does support Republican ideals but there are no claims to connection with the Republican Party or the McClain/Palin ticket. Each video runs for about a minute and has direct links to YouTube. Send the link off to others so that they nay have a better understanding of the importance of this election.

Joe The Plumber

"If it's meta-memes and meta-meta-narratives these media headlice want, so be it. I hope you will join me in expressing a simple bit of solidarity with this guy, Spartacus style. I AM JOE. I am a Wal Mart schlub in flyover country who changes my own oil and unclogs drains without a license. I smoke and drink beer and toss the football in the front yard with my kid, and I figure I can fend my way without handouts from some Magic Messiah's candy bags. Most everyone in my family and most everyone I grew up with is another Joe, and if you screw with them, you screw with me.
