Republican strategist Brad Blakeman, responding to a question about how John McCain could square his opposition to wasteful spending with the RNC shelling out over $150,000 on clothes and accessories for Sarah Palin, said that the real outrage is Barack Obama "taking a 767 campaign plane to go visit Grandma." This is the same grandmother who raised Obama and who is very seriously ill.
This from the party of "family values."
Using your campaign plane to rush to your dying grandmother's side is in no way morally equivalent to breaking campaign finance law to tart up Caribou Barbie "because she needs clothes." The fact that these fuckers thinks it's worse tells you all you'll ever need to know about the morality and values of the right wing.
If you feel moved to make a statement, Ratmach at Daily Kos has created an Act Blue page where you can make donations to Obama in his grandmother's name. [4:19 am Pacific - Act Blue's server has the blues. Ah, well, there's always the campaign's website.]
