My sister called earlier this evening and asked me of Senator McCain’s chances. Well, he has to win Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Oho… she interrupted me with a giggle, but I stipulated that he can do this.
“And he has to win Pennsylvania, so you and [brother-in-law] must vote tomorrow.”
My wife and I drove to the mall today, listening to Fox News Channel on XM, and Senator McCain was nearing the end of his speech. We had to stay to hear the end, which was:
I’m going to fight for my cause every day as your President. I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach. Fight with me. Fight with me.
Fight for what’s right for our country.
Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.
Fight for our children’s future.
Fight for justice and opportunity for all.
Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.
Stand up for each other; for beautiful, blessed, bountiful America.
Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. Nothing is inevitable here. We’re Americans, and we never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.
Thank you, and God Bless you.
Wherever you are, vote! Sure, we will disappoint the French. I say that because I saw a Frenchman on BBC America speaking of the “global euphoria” when Obama wins tomorrow. Global euphoria is fine, but that is not why we elect a President of the United States. We elect a President to lead us in the fight for what this country is. Freedom. Security. The right to use our abilities to prosper.
I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
