300 reasons I would vote for used gym socks if it would keep John McCain out of office

Reason #26

I don’t think this is much of a surprise, but McCain has pledged that, if elected, he will appoint conservative judges.

From the Washington Post:

Highlighting an issue he plans to use aggressively in the general election campaign, Sen. John McCain on Tuesday decried “the common and systematic abuse of our federal courts by the people we entrust with judicial power” and pledged to nominate judges similar to the ones President Bush has placed on the bench.

The thing about our political system is that it’s really the judicial branch that has the most power, and the most longstanding power (remember Bush v. Gore?). When people with one political agenda dominate the judicial branch, it affects pretty much everything. In the chilling words of Grampy McSame himself, “Elections have consequences. One of the consequences is the president of the United States gets to name his or her nominees to the bench.”
