Did You Know...?

California has banned the use of “bride” and “groom” on marriage licenses. California's high court declared that legal definitions of marriage as a union between a man and a woman were unconstitutional. Since the ruling, generic designations have been added to legal documents. Couples can only be wed in that state if they refer to themselves as “Party A” and Party B.” In November, however, the voters in California will have the opportunity to vote on the marriage amendment. If passed, the state constitution will be changed to recognize only marriages between a man and a woman.

In a television interview, Barack Obama stated, "My Muslim faith." While speaking to George Stephanopoulos, Obama stated, “…you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith…” Stephanopoulos immediately corrected Obama, stating, “Christian faith.” Obama then said that what he meant was that John McCain has not referred to him as being Muslim. Slip of the tongue?

Three major advocates of abortion rights are planning to spend nearly $30 million to defeat John McCain’s run for president, citing his new running mate as the core reason. NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood, and EMILY’s List have Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) in their crosshairs, calling her a staunch opponent of abortion rights. “This is the most anti-choice ticket in history of the Republican Party,” said Beth Shipp, the political director of NARAL. “McCain put someone as outside the mainstream as you can on his ticket, which is Sarah Palin,” Shipp added.

Even left-leaning journalists are fed up with the outright lies that the Obama campaign is circulating about Sarah Palin. Kirsten Powers of the New York Post wrote an article today debunking several of the fallacies that have been presented as fact by the Obama campaign.

Bonus Question
Is Joe Biden still on one of the presidential tickets?

The Obama-Biden ticket is repulsive. Obama keeps pounding "change" in our heads, and who does he pick? Biden! That guy has been in politics since 1973! http://tiffanysworldorandom.blogspot.com/2008/09/vote-vote-vote-on-one-side-you-have.html

I'd rather be right than wrong.
