Senator John McCain Promises Change

Taking his cue from Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, Republican candidate John McCain accepted his nomination at the Republican National Convention with a speech that promised change.

McCain briefly gave the Bush family kudos, as well as his, but my
favorite was his 96-year-old mother who quickly stood up to get her
applause. You go, you old girl, you.

The Arizona senator vowed, “I will reach out my hand to anyone to help me get this country moving again.” And then his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin performed shooting tricks on-stage, which included blasting an apple clean of Cindy McCain’s head. And then the Alaskan wrestled a moose.

OK, maybe that last part only happened when my mind started wandering
during his speech, but give it time. We’ll get to see that soon enough.
And honestly, if I get to watch Palin put a moose in a headlock, she
might just win my vote. I base my politics on a candidate’s animal
wrestling abilities.
