A Wave for McCain in Dayton

By Robert Barnes
DAYTON, Ohio -- McCain supporters took seriously that their rally today was being held in the basketball area at Wright State University.

Two high school bands were in the stands, and their cheerleaders took the stage, chanting:

In the Stands
John McCain.''

Next, "Who wants T-shirts?'' And after shirts were launched into the outstretched hands, the inevitable:

The wave.

When are people going to challenge the republicans on pro life? They are pro gestation! Pro life to me is no human in American should have to die because of lack of access to health care!! If the so called neocon, so called pro lifers, were actually pro life something could be done about health care. All they are is pro gestation!!

I wonder what high schools would allow their bands and cheer leaders to participate in an official partisan political campaign rally. Poor judgment on someone's part.

Maybe McCain can call the girls up on stage to enter the wet t-shirt contest! He thought his gal, Cindy was going to win the one in Sturgis. Vroooom!!

Following are keynote speakers that you missed and topics:

Marion Barry --- Drug Abuse

Rep. Denny Kucinich --- How to garner 1 % of the vote in every primary entered

Sen. Chrissy Dodd --- Obtaining Countrywide loans

Sen. Chucky Schumer --- How to initiate a run on a bank

Jesse Jackson ---- Marital fidelity and Castration

John Edwards ---- Ambulance Chasing and Spousal support in time of need

Sen. Theodore Kennedy --- Driver education and How to stop a pending autopsy

James McGreevey ---- Gay rights

Mayor Ray Nagin --- Emergency evacuation preparations

Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick – Email etiquette in the workplace

Al Sharpton ---- Race relations

Sen. Evan Bayh --- How to ignore the Liberal wing of the Democratic Party and support the war in Iraq

Al Gore --- Snow Removal

Louis Farrakhan --- Muslims in America and Muslim in the White House

PS - My god, Sarah Palin is extremely good lucking and sexy !

How is Obama going to pay for the "Change"? Do you want the government taking that much control? I smell a surprise coming if Obama is elected, Gas won't be the onl;y thing tearing up our pockets. P.S.Check out Obama's real tax program, and kiss your 401 goodby

Sarah Palin is the most unqualified VP nominee in modern history, with the possible exception of Admiral Stockdale.

She's worse than Quayle.
