Right then. As I've now had the 1476th person say "Sure Obama's a great speaker, but when's he going to talk about specific policy?" and I've managed not to strangle anyone, I will take a break from the sixty scripts sitting next to my desk and waste a millisecond of blog-time.
So you're saying you haven't seen Obama talk specifics in his speeches? Hmm, what speech exactly? The complete stump speech you saw on the nightly news? Oh, that's right, you never get more than 15 seconds of ANYONE'S speech on the nightly news. You haven't seen more than thirty seconds of McCain's stump speech either, I'll wager, and yet you don't doubt he's just chock full o'policies. He is Very Serious, as the whinging reporters with Daddy Issues will tell you again and again.
The Barack Obama "Issues" Page.
The John McCain "Issues" Page.
There. Make sure you click on the "Continue Reading" links for the good stuff. Policy recommendations to keep you going all night long. Sexy cap-and-trade chatter. And I will continue to link to them twice a week until the election.
For what little it's worth, when John McCain goes back to being the guy who opposed the Bush "tax cuts without spending cuts" in 2001 and 2003 and opposed torture, I'll begin considering him seriously. As long as he's in the "Tax Fairy" club, unh-uh.
