Cindy McCain and Laura Bush appeared together at the Republican convention yesterday and offered uplifting fare to the 17 delegates in attendance. In a surprisingly bold move, Cindy offered the following bit of wardrobe advice: “This is a time when we take off our Republican hats and put on our American hats.” Brave and inspiring words, indeed!
However, in this blogger’s search of the internet, I have found NO evidence that either woman owns a Republican hat, let alone an American hat.
After all the flap about Obama and his flag pin, you’d think that these ladies would have had the decency and patriotism to at least have the hats to which they are referring. At the very least, this is more evidence of the poor planning of John McCain and his team of mavericks. More ominously, it does lead one to worry – do they even care about their Republican and American hats? Are they real Republicans and real Americans? Without the hats, how can we know for sure?
… then, of course, there is all the ongoing Palin stuff! My prediction? She’ll be gone before the new NFL season kicks off on Thursday night (with an upset of the Giants by the Redskins, I might add).
PS Good luck, CB, on your first day teaching the kids! (If you ever want to blog about teaching in the NYC public schools, just say the word and I’ll set you up!)
