Geez, is this WorldNetDaily or MoveOn.org?

by Jeremy Hooper

You have to wonder who, exactly the conservative WorldNetDaily news site is targeting with their latest bumper sticker. Because mixed in with the anti-Obama, "pro-life," pro-offshore drilling, pro-homeschooling bumper stickers that the site has been selling for the past few months, they are now also selling this anti-McCain one:

An electe-reluctant sticker that's not even made up of a benign, "well he's not our perfect choice but we'll still vote for him" type of slogan that one might assume would be touted by one of this nation's most conservative news outlets. Instead, this is an all out attack on the presumptive GOP nominee's abilities, which implies that the Republican candidate won't be getting their endorsement this election year. A standpoint that's complimented by this campaign button, also now being sold by WND:

Now don't get us wrong -- we're totally okay with the idea of a conservative non-vote, if that's the one WorldNet wishs to sell to their readers. We just find it surprising that they, forceful names in these so-called "culture wars," are pushing these lines so forcefully. Their refusal to fall in line actually makes us respect them an eensy bit more.

Your thoughts

I do like the "none of the above" button! Plus it can also be re-used for future seasons of American Idol.

The "McCain not ABLE" is probably just some left over inventory from when they thought Romney or Huckabee had a snowball's chance in hell of gaining the nomination. This all has to be very disheartening to them. All of their "fasting" and "prayer" has really been met with what can be described as a "holy smackdown."
