Most people missed it, especially if they were watching a network of talking heads.
And now, during the last thirty days, as the McCain campaign begins to push the meme that this man is “risky” and “unpatriotic” (one of my relatives actually told me that they believes Obama to be the “anti-Christ” last night, and they were being serious… seriously ignorant), I hope all people will take the time, do the due diligence, and discover who this man really is.
You don’t have to vote for him, of course, but we all need to stop substituting blind, ideological ignorance for real, constructive criticism.
By the way, I think it’s important to note: Obama’s campaign is quietly spending money here in Louisiana. His commercials have been all over cable news (I’m not sure if this is a part of a national ad campaign, but McCain has been completely off air), and he’s been organizing on a local level.
His Alexandria office, for example, is busy making calls and registering voters all across Central Louisiana– all under the radar so far.
