I've been wanting to blog about this for a few days now. I've learned, via Gateway Pundit, that John McCain has an adopted daughter from Bangladesh. John & Cindy McCain adopted her in 1991. You're probably thinking "Why the hell haven't I heard of this!?" I thought exactly the same thing upon reading it. Liberals constantly claim that there is no liberal bias in the media, in fact they claim the media is actually conservative! If that were true wouldn't this story have been all over the mainstream news?
Let me ask something about this whole situation. If Michelle & Barack Obama had a child that they'd adopted from Sudan can anyone honestly tell me that the media wouldn't be all over it? They would jump at the opportunity to do primetime pieces gushing with lavish praise for the selfless humanitarian acts of the Obama's. Barack would parade that kid out for the world to see as a shining example of the good "hope & change" The Messiah can bring about, and he would tell the rest of America that they need to do the same.
The McCains? They haven't used this for political capital at all. To me that shows integrity and humility, and I respect them for it. Why has the mainstream media, who LOVE sensational stories, not reported on something like this?
This can really all be summed up with one thought. Actions speak louder than words. Obama promises people the world, but McCain actually gave hope and life in a better world to an orphaned little girl in a 3rd world country. He and his wife gave her a loving family, and a better life in the greatest country in the world. What greater gift could you give a child?
