It’s almost summer, and that means the General Election is about to start heating up. John McCain is ready. He’s gearing up and getting his priorities in order. Like his spiffy new website, which lists many of McCain’s top issues front and center. Here are the top four tabs on the website:
- Creating Jobs
- Decision Center
- Golf Gear
And while McCain may be playing straight into the Republican stereotype, it really has to be considered his base. According to a Golf Digest study, 41% of golfers believe global warming to be a myth, compared to 27% of the general public. And if you say that most people who don’t believe in global warming tend to be Republicans, then perhaps the McCain golfer push is a smart, targeted approach. Move over soccer moms, golfer guys are the new hot demographic in the electorate!
Or maybe they’re just looking to make some extra money...
