LANCASTER, Pennsylvania (AFP) – The stump speeches of John McCain and Sarah Palin are shaping up to be long on patriotism and personality and short on policy as the Republican running mates crisscross battleground states ahead of the November 4 presidential election.

Country first, reform and smaller government are constant themes from the candidates. Chants of “USA! USA!” and “drill baby, drill” are supplied by the crowd.

While the settings vary — the main street of small towns in Wisconsin and Ohio, baseball stadiums in Missouri and Pennsylvania, an airline hanger in Colorado, an amphitheater in Michigan — the presence of a massive flag does not.

In New Mexico, the flag even served as a curtain that was raised as the candidates drove into a convention center on McCain’s iconic Straight Talk Express campaign bus. Source Article
