Oh no! The article following this post causes a great dilemma that could make you want to vote for Obama!

I sent this email that I wrote to my friend Danielle. Now, just to let everybody know, I am not advocating voting for Obama. Like all socialists, Obama would do everything in his power to destroy the great principles of liberty and freedom for which America stands. With that said, enjoy:
I almost want to vote for Obama now because of this article that I read about Janet Napolitano. Here's the two scenarios:
1) McCain wins. Then as sitting Governor of Arizona Janet Napolitano gets to pick any Arizona Republican that she wants to serve out McCain's term in the US Senate. This would likely mean that Napolitano would pick a nutt-job liberal Republican supporter of hers to serve out McCain's term - most likely with the unwritten promise that such a Republican would not run for re-election and set up a likely Senate opening for Napolitano. I think that you (Danielle) were the one who mentioned Grant Woods as the likely pick. Under this scenario, life in Arizona sucks. Nationally, things will be better maybe because McCain will get to appoint Conservative justices, but will he be able to get any of his appointments through the Senate? We lose his Senate seat to a lib Republican, then we likely lose his seat to the Dark Lord Napolitano herself.
2) Obama wins. This of course is horrible because Obama will be the President. He will get to appoint replacements to the Supreme Court for John Paul Stevens who is older that dirt, Ruth Bader Ginsberg who has long been suffering from health problems, and maybe one other Justice - probably Kennedy, the swing vote. Thus our recent progress on the Supreme Court will have suffered from a longterm regression.
Now, on the bright side, McCain will retain his Senate seat. We do not know that he will run for re-election, but that might not matter in keeping Napolitano from running to take this seat from him. Napolitano, as an early and prominent Obama supporter, could likely get a high profile Cabinet appointment in an Obama Administration. The position that she covets most is the position of US Attorney General. Napolitano wants this appointment almost even more than being Vice President or (gulp) President someday - neither of which the article's lib author admits is likely for woman with a "nontraditional personal life" who has never been married and has no children. In such a role, Napolitano can do very little to continue to destroy Arizona & can't do much to mess up America either.
Then Napolitano will be replaced by Jan Brewer, who will likely become popular enough to be easily re-elected to two terms of her own! McCain & Kyl have safe Republican Senate seats & as long as we keep Dems in the Senate from getting Veto-Proof majorities or coalitions for Obama, Republicans can look forward with great glee to 2010 - a year in which Dems have to defend way more Senate seats than Republicans do!
Plus, back at home, Russell Pearce should be in the Arizona State Senate by that time. We will pass and get signed bills to ban partial birth abortion and to force 24 hour waiting periods for all other elective abortions. We can also balance the budget and we will all live happily ever after in our Arizona sunshine and home.
And our added bonus will be that once Napolitano goes to Washington, I doubt she'll ever want to come back home. Maybe she'll do the Hillary thing and move to New York to run for Senate some day. Just as long as she doesn't represent me anymore!
So, why should I vote for McCain again? Maybe there's a glass-half-full side to an Obama Presidency after all? ;)
Here's the article that will probably make you gag like it did me:

Arizona YR State Convetion This Saturday @ Alice Coopers'town in Phoenix

I just just wanted to pass on a message about our Arizona Young Republican League State Convention that I received this evening from our YR State Chairman, Wil Westholm.

After a long and frustrating search for a meeting place, he has announced that we will be getting together at Alice Coopers'town in downtown Phoenix this Saturday, July 12 @ 1:00pm.

Alice Coopers'town is located at 101 E Jackson St, Phoenix 85004 near the southwest corner of the US Airways Center where the Phoenix Suns play. We'd love to see you up there to show how strong Republican support is from Southern Arizona. If you would like to go but might need a ride, please contact Tyler Mott to set up carpooling arrangements.

Since there's not really any pressing business to tend to at this convention, there's no need to find a more formal meeting place, and this year's convention will be treated as more of an informal get-together than a formal convention. So, this could be a great opportunity for each of us to meet like-minded young Republican activists from across the State. It should be a lot of fun!

If you will be in attendance, please let Wil Westolm know by Saturday morning by contacting him at; however, if you come at the last minute, you won't be turned away. I hope to see you there!

Also as an FYI, Arizona YR Vice-Chairman, Jason Richmond, is moving back east. So, this will create a vacancy for the office of Vice-Chair. If anybody is interested in stepping into this role, please let Wil Westholm know. We'll be appointing a new Vice-Chair soon, so we can have everyone in place as we get into the election season.
