We have a choice between bigger government and even bigger government. If Obama wasn’t so scary, I’d be staying home on election day. As it is, I have to vote for McCain, only because Obama has to be stopped. I don’t have any faith that McCain will even slow the growth of government, let alone shrink it, but I suspect he will not accelerate its growth as much as Obama will.
I don’t think he will attribute his victory to his getting conservatives on board. He’s been aiming at the undecided voters from day one, all three of them. He’s too brain addled to realize how few of them there are, or how many conservatives there are.
Some see this as a watershed election. I see it as more of a waterfall election. Either boat will take us down. One faster than the other.

I doubt one Freeper in 20 supported McCain in the early Primaries... but the other choices after it was clear Duncan Hunter wouldn’t win and Fred Thompson didn’t develop and the Dems nominate a mega-liberal, McCain became the best choice.
Very sad about Sarah Palin, though - good policies and likable but not much depth and she totally lost me saying abortion clinic bombers aren’t terrorists.
All in all, you have a good analogy - a waterfall election.
But I’d still rather be an American in America than anyone else anywhere else. We’ll come through.
