Could This Be The October Surprise?
For both The Obamanation and McPain

Lynn Woolley of Human Events pretty much nails it. Here's some of the article. Believe me, it's well worth the read; (Emphasis mine)
Obama's October Surprise

The campaign talking point that every Democrat repeats ad nauseum is that Obama was only 8 years old when Ayers and his terrorist wife Bernadette Dohrn were involved in such activities as bombing the U. S. Capitol and the Pentagon. On “Meet the Press,” moderator Tom Brokaw refers to Ayers as an “education reformer.” The truth is that Ayers gave Obama his only executive experience by tabbing him to distribute $50 million in grant money -- money to be used by groups like ACORN to radicalize students.

But somehow this is too complicated for the people to understand. After all, Obama was just 8 years old.

Well, he wasn’t 8 when he met Antoin “Tony” Rezko. Rezko, a convicted felon, is behind bars and may be singing like a canary to federal prosecutors. What he’s telling them isn’t precisely known because it’s all secret. But Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich might have reason to worry; so might Obama. It just depends on what it takes for Rezko to get a deal with the feds. And, of course, it depends on what’s to tell. Perhaps Rezko’s fundraising and real estate dealings with Obama were all on the up and up. Not likely, but maybe.

And maybe the October Surprise will involve Obama’s on-line fundraising where the numbers of fake names and over-the-limits donations are skyrocketing. The Republican National Committee has asked the FEC to investigate evidence of illegal foreign influence, but time is running short.

Maybe, if there is a surprise, it will be the result of some major media investigation of Obama’s relationship with the bloody Prime Minister of Kenya, Raila Odinga. WBBM-TV in Chicago ran a report that had Obama criticizing Kenyan President Kibaki during a 2006 Senate fact-finding trip to Kenya. It would be interesting to know more about Obama’s ties to Odinga, who has a power-sharing agreement with Kibaki and who named his son “Fidel” after you-know-who. But no major newspaper or network is checking into the story so far as we know.

Maybe the October Surprise will be that John McCain takes the advice of his own supporters and forcefully goes after Sen. Obama on his record, his policies and his alliances. Now THAT would be a surprise.
But in all fairness, let's not forget that during last night's debate, McCain admitted to being a favor of federally funded Embryonic Stem Cell Research.

Here's the transcript. See it for yourself;
McCain: Every other ad -- ever other ad was an attack ad on my health care plan. And any objective observer has said it's not true. You're running ads right now that say that I oppose federal funding for stem cell research. I don't.Face it... McCain looks upon ESCR as a political football what he's scared to death of fumbling. Oh, and he still worships at the Altar of Sacrificial Babies.

So who does that leave to vote for? An independent?

Paramedicgirl, if your conscience won't permit you to support McCain, I recommend Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party.

But I think we'll be better off with McCain. He won't win the culture war for us, but we can make some progress with him, and then Gov. Palin will be well-positioned to do still more.

It's not news that McCain supports funding for expanded ESCR lines. At least he's surrounded by people (like Brownback and Palin) telling him it's wrong.

What I only recently learned though, was that Obama opposes federal funding for adult stem cell research. Obama is opposed to stem cell research unless babies are being killed.

The "October Surprise" was a massive, co-ordinated short-sale of US Bank Stocks.

Tony Resko was believed to be a "nice Italian boy" from Chicago. In actuality he was born in SYRIA. A proud and consistent state sponsor of terrorism. Be afraid, be very afraid.
