THE GAMBLER (click that link to the NYT article today.)
Correct me if I'm wrong (and I am not trying to be facetious.) Stop rolling your eyes at me! I'm not! But don't many folks on the religious right, particularly Born Again Christians find gambling to be highly sinful and downright wrong? I think we've seen examples of McCain's gambles so far in this campaign. The Palin choice. Suspending his campaign. Not going to attend the debate. Then attending the debate. He is a well known gambler. I'm not against gambling per se. Don't blow the mortgage payment and your kids' lunch money. But I have no problem with the casinos here in CT or elsewhere. But how does that sit with the base? And/or does Sarah Palin's not having had an abortion outweight that concern (and so many others) like a magic eraser?
