Another Reason Not to Vote for John McCain

Al "Manbearpig" Gore is calling for a Kennedyesque national effort to "produce every kilowatt of electricity through wind, sun and other Earth-friendly energy sources within 10 years". I've already documented how fascistic I think this "Apollo Program" line of thought is, but there's another nugget in this article:

"The Nobel Prize-winning former vice president said fellow Democrat Barack Obama and Republican rival John McCain are "way ahead" of most politicians in the fight against global climate change."

Does Mr. McCain realize how aghast conservatives are when they hear a radical, anti capitalist, greeny like Al "Manbearpig" Gore say their presidential candidate is on the right track when it comes to global warming? Beyond the right, how about an average American who thinks the global warmists and environmentalists are wackjobs? What's he going to think? You don't have to be a conservative or a Republican to realize that Al Gore is bat shit crazy. Unfortunately, I'm sure McCain will be consistent and divine how conservatives want him to act and do the opposite. Expect to hear McCain refer to Gore as a "pioneer", or a "great American", or some such drivel in the coming days. Meanwhile, China chuckles to itself as it takes another shot of oil and grabs the reigns of history.

Although McCain leans further left than I would personally like, I believe that he'll provide better wisdom on war issues than we've had during the previous 7 years.

The worst of Iraq may appear to be behind us, but that's misleading.

I think it's going to get more complex as we balance troop withdrawal while keeping a hammer held over Iran's head. We absolutely cannot just vacate the entire area.

There's just no getting around the fact that had McCain's suggestion been followed years earlier - there would have been fewer casualties and I think we would have been much further along

I disagree with McCain on a great many things, however foreign policy prowess is going to be absolutely critical over the next 4 years in comparison to everything else. IMHO.

I think foreign policy will consume most of the next president's term, regardless of who is in the White House. And for that, exprience DOES count.

Well, that's the only reason I'd ever even entertain the idea of voting for the man. And yes, while he may be a foreign policy hawk, we'll have to put up with a liberal domestic policy program (you think GWB was bad, just wait).
