McCain isn’t exactly singing in the rain…as he abandons supporters

For anyone who wants to view Palin as merely a sidekick, I’d like to remind you that McCain is 72, his body has been through hell, he has a history of cancer, and for whatever reason, wouldn’t even address his Quakertown, Pennsylvania rally in the rain.
  As a past delivery driver, I’ve stood in literal sheets of downpour before, stepping in ankle deep water, with miniature mud slides and lightning smacking all around just to earn my minimum wage + hopeful tip.  To get right to the point, Obama endured and delivered for his loyal masses that too, had stood in sheets of downpour, stepping in ankle deep water, to see for their own eyes…

McCain’s fans obviously did the same, but apparently they were not worth the trouble.

 

Obama realized the atmospheric metaphor surrounding him, and drove home the message that now, more than ever, it is imperative that our will and reserves not falter.  Even more so, he delivered his entire closing statement sans teleprompter, as the moisture had crashed the system.  Truly inspiring, I leave with you his own words:

 

Pennsylvania, that’s what hope is about – the belief deep down inside of us that we can do better than we’re doing right now, that there better days ahead, if we’re willing to work for it. If we’re willing to shed our fears and our doubts, if we’re willing to reach down deep inside us, when times are tough, when it’s cold, when it’s rainy, when it’s hard – that’s when we stand up, that’s when we reach for a better future. And if all of you are willing to be just as determined as you are today, if all of you go out on election day, if all of you get your friends and your neighbors, your co-workers, if you are determined to bring about a better America, then I promise you this, we will not just win Pennsylvania, we will win this general election and you can I together, we’re gonna change this country and change this world!
