I have been a critic of John McCain on many issues in the past, but have always been careful to note he’s a great American. Today he proves he is also a gentleman, a father of great heart, and a model for the country.
UPDATE: Another e-mail:
Your callers have me in tears.
We to have a Downs Syndrome son who is 38, works for WalMart and is a great joy to have in our lives. Our son’s real father abandoned my wife and son when he found out that his son was retarded. I have known Rob for 34 years and he and I lock horns but we are best buds. The people at WalMart love him too so he has about 400 more fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters.
As a bank auditor who had twenty people working for me of all ethnic backgrounds and both sexes I wanted people like Sarah Palin to work for me because they had backbone and could manage their time. We worked through 56 bank and S&L acquisitions with long hours and crushing stress but I would not have done it any differently with my people. I made sure that I took care of the mothers and the fathers.
I was not going to vote for McCain now I will.
I’m not sure even the McCain campaign knows how great the groundswell of support for McCain-Palin is.
