    Default Wisconsin GOP official denounces John McCain robo calls, endorses Barack Obama

    The first Republican woman State Senator in Wisconsin history announced on Tuesday that she would be supporting Barack Obama, in part because of the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign and, specifically, the use of "dishonorable" anti-Obama robocalls.

    "All of us should be extremely wary of the half truths and outright untruths that have been spread by the recent negative campaigning and shameful automated phone calls," said Barbara Lorman of Fort Atkinson. "While my admiration for Senator Obama has grown with his positive approach to addressing the challenges facing our nation, my disappointment with the McCain campaigned has deepened. The negative tactics are inappropriate, downright dishonorable and have no place in the State of Wisconsin."

    In issuing her statement, Lorman became the latest in a growing line of GOP officials who have publicly denounced the recent tone and tactics of the McCain camp. In recent days, Sens. Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe and Norm Coleman, as well as former Secretary of State Colin Powell, have all been highly critical of the Arizona Republican's efforts to tie Barack Obama to former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers. Lorman is not, obviously, of the same national stature as these other officials. But her place in Wisconsin politics makes her an influential voice in an important swing state.

    The fact that she is a lifelong Republican -- she left the Senate in 1994 and, until recently, was the longest woman serving senator in Wisconsin history -- now crossing party lines is also of interest.

    "I'm a lifelong Republican, but Senator Obama is the right leader for our country and will deliver the change we need," Lorman said in a statement released by the state's Democratic Party. "After taking a careful look at the qualities of both McCain and Obama and who would be best for our country, I found that Senator Obama's ability to bridge the partisan divide to work toward solid solutions that will get our nation back on the right track meant he is the right choice this November."

    It's not too late for people to come to their senses, grow a brain and do the right thing. Just do it before November 4th, 2008.

    I hope this is the start of a long list of Republican moderates who recognize McSham for what he is and they don't want him. Just a few more senators or high ranking politicians could push him over the edge.

    Before this is over, Republicans who have the capability to learn, will go to the right side.

    McCrazy is nothing more than the sequel to this horror movie which has been the Bush Administration.

    ^^After Bush, you would think every Republican incumbent in any election would be ousted by a landslide, while those vying to oust a democrat would be tarred and feathered.

    People are stupid.

    If McSatan gets into office, collect rocks. You will be using them to boil for soup.
