Seven Days and Counting! I got my voter registration card in the mail yesterday so Novemeber 4th here I come! My girl Coutura forwarded me this email full of "What if?" inquiries. I appreciate the inquiries. I appreciate them more because they call into question the hypocrisy of our double standard society!
Soooo... What if???
Obama/Biden vs McCain/Palin, what if things were switched around? .....think about it. Would the country's collective point of view be different?
Ponder the following: What if the Obamas had paraded five children across the stage, including a three month old infant and an unwed, pregnant teenage daughter?
What if John McCain was a former president of the Harvard Law Review?
What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?
What if McCain had only married once and Obama was a divorcee?
What if Obama was the candidate who left his first wife after a severe disfiguring car accident, when she no longer measured up to his standards?
What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a long affair while he was still married?
What if Michelle Obama was the wife who not only became addicted to painkillers but also acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?
What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?
What if Obama had been a member of the Keating Five?(The Keating Five were five United States Senators accused of corruption in 1989, igniting a major political scandal as part of the larger Savings and Loan crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s.)
What if McCain was a charismatic, eloquent speaker? What if Obama couldn't read from a teleprompter?
What if Obama was the one who had military experience that included; discipline problems and a record of crashing seven planes?
What if Obama was the one who was known to display publicly, on many occasions, a serious anger management problem?
What if Michelle Obama's family had made their money from beer distribution.
You could easily add to this list. If these questions reflected reality,do you really believe the election numbers would be as close as they are?

This is not meant to offend anyone and i know education isn't everything, but this is about the two highest office in the land as well as our standing in the world. You make the call.
