What if things were turned around?

My friend Big Jim, an Alaskan, sent me this e mail.
I credit this whole post to him.
God bless his heart.(AND America, too. Yah betcha)

What if the presidential candidates were in each others shoes for a moment?

Like that movie where the mother and daughter switch places for a day?
Remember that movie? If you do then you are old enough to vote and should be voting soon...
Let's begin:

What if John McCain were a former president of the Harvard
Law Review?

What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of
his graduating

What if McCain had only married once and Obama was a
What if Obama had met his second wife in a bar and had a
long affair while
he was still married?

What if McCain were still married to the first woman he
said 'I do' to?
What if Obama were the candidate who left his first wife
after she no
longer measured up to his standards?

What if Michelle Obama were a wife who not only became
addicted to pain
killers, but acquired them illegally through her charitable
What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?

What if Obama were a member of the Keating-5?
(Five US senators accused of corruption in 1989 igniting a major political scandal as

Would the country's collective point of view be

What if the Obama had paraded five children across the

debate including a 3 month old infant and an unwed, pregnant

believe the election
numbers would be as close as they are?
This is what racism does. It covers up, rationalizes and

With America facing historic debt, two wars, stumbling
health care, a
weakened dollar, all-time high prison population, mortgage
crises, bank
foreclosures, etc.
