Presently not mad at Senator McCain

Today is one of those rare days when I'm not mad at Senator McCain...

The fellowship my church belongs to has its more-or-less "headquarters" in Prescott, Arizona. Every 4th of July, the town of Prescott has a God & Country event. Parades, music, etc... I heard this morning at church that yesterday, our fellowship invited the Senator to speak and he agreed. This comes as a surprise to me, not because I doubt the Senator's patriotism (I certainly don't!) but it was short-notice, and our fellowship has a bit of a reputation for being bold (some who don't know better might say we're "obnoxious").

Senator McCain addressed a significant crowd in front of the county courthouse. When he concluded, Pastor Mitchell took the mike and pulled an altar call right then and there! Reports are that many people responded. Glory! Senator McCain and his entourage stayed through the call instead of hightailing it like one might expect a busy public official to do.

Now, Senator, please vote an emphatic NO! on cap-n-tax and ObamaCare. I'd like this odd feeling of not being mad at your maverickyness to linger for a while!


  1. Well, I'm mad at him. I just got a note back from him about cap and trade. His conclusion was:

    "More recently, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. While I still believe that climate change is a critical issue that must be addressed, some significant changes will have to be made to this legislation before I can support passage of similar in the Senate. However, please be assured that I will keep your views in mind as I work together with my fellow Senators and the Administration to negotiate a successful method of addressing this critical issue."

    Read: "I don't like the current cap and trade because I wanted something different."

  2. Euripides, I had a feeling it wouldn't be long 'til Mac disappointed me again.


Family-friendly phrasing heartily encouraged.
