Back to the Culture Wars

Fr. Raymond deSouza:

"..The Palin selection indicates that the McCain campaign wishes to sharpen this contrast. A few months ago, it was widely thought that this election would leave behind the red-state/blue-state Bush elections. Instead of cultural politics, there would be personality politics. McCain, the noblest war veteran in America, versus Obama, the anointed one who would heal the planet and calm the oceans. It would be a new kind of election.

Then surprises. The man of change, Obama, chose the safest, most insider running mate imaginable, Joe Biden. The old man, McCain, went with the groundbreaking outsider. It is all upside down, but the result will be a campaign quite familiar. In a culture war election, Governor Palin will be a not-so-secret weapon."
