    NY’s Independence Party endorses McCain

    NEW YORK (AP) — The state Independence Party endorsed Republican John McCain on Saturday, the first time New York’s third-largest party has backed a major-party presidential candidate.

    The group, organized around the principle that the major parties have a stranglehold on American politics, sees McCain as an independent thinker, Chairman Frank MacKay said.

    “I believe he will not take the traditional input from the party bosses and the special interests that other presidents have. I believe he’s going to be his own man,” MacKay said, citing McCain’s work as co-author of a landmark 2002 law that restricted “soft money,” or indirect campaign donations.

    Ouch. That's gotta hurt.

    I thought Palin and McCain were estranging everyone right and left.

    Oh, wait. That was just the leftist fantasy machine malfunctioning again.

    LMAO, another cut and splice edit job "written, produced and edited" in mom's basement...nice try tho.


    I don't believe anything on You Tube that is edited. Give me the whole interview or none. After the "Task from God" edit job on Governor Palin's speech at her church, I trust nothing that comes from the left's posts on You Tube.


    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H-btXPfhGs"]Here is the You Tube clip the left keeps playing.[/ame]


    Governor Palin says "Pray for our military men and woman who are striving to do what is right for this country, that our national leaders are sending them out on a task from God. That is what we have to pray for, that there is a plan and that plan is from God."



    And here is the speech in context from the Huffington Post. The video is halfway down the page, the quote starts at 5:30.


    ABC news was fooled too (or perhaps not).

    Once again. She was following Abe Lincoln's lead, and praying not that God was behind their plan, but that they are working as they should in God's plan.
    A worthy sentiment.

    Some information about the party in question..


    "Supporters of independent presidential candidate Ross Perot founded the state's Independence Party in 1996."

    "It now counts about 355,000 registered voters statewide, compared to more than 5.4 million Democrats and nearly 3 million Republicans."



    Wonder if any registered Demos unhappy with the current direction of the party will be infuenced with the independant party's endorsement? I will try to find more info on this...
