The Huffington Post helpfully explains:
In essence, Obama supported "age appropriate" sex-education for children as a means of teaching them what was proper or inproper touching, as well as to protect them against pedophiles, his campaign has said. Used in the context of the McCain campaign ad, however, Obama's stance becomes another one of those cultural issues that seems designed to alienate the Illinois Democrat from more socially moderate voters.While we're on the subject, Jonathan Freedland's commentary in the Guardian is great, and here's some Palin news that Jews can use (both items courtesy of Michael).
On an unrelated note: I discovered today that the Internet provider Clearwire has been flat-out stealing from me for more than a year after I told them, in no uncertain terms, that I wanted out. And by "no uncertain terms," I mean I threatened to go to the Better Business Bureau and the law over their already shady and unethical practices. I would advise anyone who is considering using their services to think twice, since at this point I consider the company capable of intentional fraud.
