Of course there're those high-impact issues so crucial to the American people - denying homosexuals equal rights by outlawing same-sex marriages, prolonging debilitating diseases by preventing potential cures which could be discovered with stem-cell research, and - the most important - increasing the volume of illegal abortions by overturning the Supreme Court decision which protects our rights & paves the way for making abortions safe.
The GOP candidates are facing an impossible challenge. The HAVE to stick by Bush in order to garner the conservative support, even though the mood of the country is clearly on the other side of this issue. The American people have lost patience with this administration, and with the Republican lawmakers which enabled it. The election of 2006 was just the start of the avalanche of support shifting from the right to the left.

Let the jackass Republicans espouse patriotism, glory, victory, failure and fear. Let them trash each other. Let them justify their indiscretions. Let them explain their flip-flopping on issues, their dirty business dealings, and their faith against science. Let them pander to the conservative base which is increasingly distancing itself from the mainstream.
