In a post this morning, I noted the irony that those voting for Obama as a “change” from the last eight years will really get more (much more) of the same on domestic policy should their man win. For like the Republican incumbent, the Democratic nominee favors ever higher levels of federal spending.
Another irony of this election is the number of people supporting their ideological adversaries. We read regularly of conservatives backing Obama, perhaps the most liberal Democratic nominee ever.
But, the MSM are less wont to cover the numerous left-of-center feminists backing McCain-Palin. Shelly Mandell, the president of the LA chapter of the left-wing National Organization for Women (NOW), has endorsed the Republican ticket, largely because of the party’s vice presidential nominee:
Now, we learn that Elaine Lafferty, former editor-in-chief of Ms. magazine, has been advising the McCain campaign. This feminist dismantles some of the media myths about the Alaska Governor and finds her to be smart and a “quicky study.”
I only fully egistered the meaning of Ms. Lafferty’s defense (which a reader sent me last night) this afternoon when my left-leaning lesbian Palin-loving friend forwarded me an e-mail she got from her Hillary 2012 listserv, a link to Rush Limbaugh’s remarks on the Democratic Party’s threat to private pensions.
A Hillary supporter encouraging us to listen to Rush Limbaugh. Ah the ironies of the 2008 election!
