McCain cites Marsha, Marsha, Marsha on This Week; will he side with haters in White House?

Everytime I start liking Sen. John McCain, he goes and says something that sets me back to square one.

This morning on This Week, he thanked GOP House members who had educated him on their objections to the bailout of Wall Street hogdogs. He mentioned several reps and ended with the name "Blackburn" as in Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.

Blackburn is a hater when it comes to people who look like me. And unfortunately, McCain is surrounded by a lot of haters in his political party and of his ideology.

Conversely, I'm not a great fan of Sen. Barack Obama as an experienced leader. He is much more of a politican with substanital rhetoric, and he stooped to great lows to stop Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign.

I like a lot of the people who support Obama. But some Democrats like Rep. Jim Cooper have remained silent during the heinous 287g deportation program in his congressional district that includes Nashville. He and others who lack simple integrity are a disgrace to the Democratic Party of Bobby Kennedy. And he would have let them know it, too.

So making an endorsement in this presidential race is quite difficult. Will McCain separate himself from the haters like Marsha, Marsha, Marsha if he makes the White House? Will he tell Rush Limbaugh to go jump?

Will Obama call out frauds like Cooper if he gets into the White House? Will he have any more interest in the nation's failed immigration policy than he has woefully shown during the campaign?

There may be no answers before it is time to vote Nov. 4. For many of us, this presidential election will present a difficult choice.
