Of course they would sell their soul to the devil to get elected. Obama's gone back on almost everything that differentiated him from anyone else running for president and it's been terribly disappointing. As for Kool Aid drinking, I would sooner vote for Britney Spears than John McCain and I am only slightly more enthusiastic about Obama than Hillary Clinton.
There is a difference, however, in flip-flopping over public campaign financing and aligning yourself with a group of people that hold views dangerously divergent from your own on an issue that directly affects the lives of millions of Americans. Your dad is probably a good example of how most undecided voters feel about homosexuality. It's difficult to go from that perspective to voting for someone who willingly associates with homophobes, was my point. If only because it feeds into a far-right stereotype that only those who are enamored with Sarah Palin can embrace.
I don't think the Ayers issue or the gay business is going to impact the election. It was just stupid to say who McCain associates with is no big deal when one seemingly considers who Obama associates with to be one.
