Tired of Political Spin
Is anyone else tired of the caricaturizing, endless spin, half-truths and demonizing of the other side on BOTH sides of this year's presidential election? I am. This week's Time Magazine has agreat little chart, analyzing the truthfulness of the ads of both candidates. Their conclusion:
"Both candidates say they want to run a clean campaign. In reality, they are tossing mud in every direction."
Scot McKnight, a thoughtful theologian and cultural critic, posted a couple of very good analyses of both McCain and Obama -- some good things and bad things about both. I highly recommend them. McKnight's conclusion:
"So, as I said about McCain. If Obama wins, there’ll be some things to like and some things to be concerned about. I think we’ll be able to work for the gospel under either President, and that is what matters most to me."
