A reader forwards an email from a man who uses the handle “Fireball,” known to my reader as a career Navy aviator now test-piloting for one of the big aircraft manufacturers.
With regard to my voting, I was undecided until the last debate.
I can not support someone who was so flip about a woman’s health and a woman’s right to choose an abortion if she had to. And the right of a doctor and a patient to decide what is in the best interests of the mother and the woman. If men bore children, we’d have abortion clinics on every corner, or at least next to every 7/11 store.
I am suspect of all politicians, their motives, their actions. I do not trust them easily and generally don’t respect them as a group. I am also aware they do not control many of the policies, programs future actions they promise to change while campaigning and are only saying what they need to get elected. I would have preferred Colin Powell, but he was too smart to run.
Yes, I suspected that “health of the mother” crack might come back to haunt McCain.
