Was absolutely unimportant. Why? Several reason, not the least of which is that John McCain can’t beat any of the remaining democratic candidates. For that matter he couldn’t beat Al Franken. He can’t even beat Al Franken in an honesty challenge.
I don’t care for McCain. I have a number of reasons for this. I suppose #1 is that he represents the worst in what America is. Don’t believe me? Let me cite a little public record for you. If you think I’m making any of this up go see for yourself.
He feels the most important thing he has ever done involved bombing the shit out of some people that at no time in their history ever threatened America. Not just any people. Third world people with no ability to defend themselves. These people had to count on aid from China and the Soviet Union to have any hope against the far superior military technology of the United States.
I’m not a particular fan of Hanoi Jane, nor having been a member of the U.S armed forces do I find them reprehensible on any level. I do however find myself disgusted by someone who failed miserably at his job claiming to be a hero. Why do I say he failed? Far less than 1% of sorties flown over North Vietnam ended in the pilot being shot down. Therefore 99% + of all pilots were better at their jobs than this mullet, and you don’t see them running around begging people to recognize their heroism. They came home, and with little fanfare went about resuming their lives.
He’s a liar. Consistently and on the public record the man lies and obfuscates in the hopes of being seen as better than his fellow man. He doesn’t just lie, he twists the truth in such a way as to sway public opinion for his own benefit which I find particularly despicable in a public servant. I think everyone else should lie a lot and with relish. Want an example?
I’ll paraphrrase here because I’m way to lazy to look up the words of a man who lies consistently and for self aggrandizement. If we leave Iraq without victory it will make our military look like failures. Not so Jack…er….John. It will make our politicians look like failures, and your own little war already proved to the world our politicians really don’t have the stomach for it.
He’s a perpetual loser. He has run for president more times than Jesse Jackson, and has never gotten a sniff. He believes this isn’t because he’s a garrulous petulant little pain in the ass. He believed so strongly that it was money alone that blocked him that he joined with Russ Feingold to create a finance reform plan that, while unconstitutional, was what he saw as his only hope to compete with people who were given money because people liked them.
He’s an elitist prick. He smirks at Mitt Romeny for being a successful businessman( and other successful business people by proxy). Yet at the same time he disdains anyone who isn’t a warmongering sycophant. If you are not part of the John McCain fanclub you are unworthy to have an opinion, and again tonight he showed his disdain for any viewpoints but his own. I hate that in a person. Unless it’s me of course. that was for you micky, you scumsucking retard.
I guess probably what I hate most about him is his fossilized ass doesn’t have the grace to retire into obscurity. He just keeps banging his little war tomtom. Tonight, when asked why voters should consider him the best man to lead in regards to the economy, he immediately began reciting his war resume. He claims a level of character he thinks none of us should dare aspire to, while flat out lying about Mitt Romney. He well may be the most scurrilous politician of our time.
Now, you wanna here what I like about John McCain? I like how he is about to get his ass trounced by a girl in the general election. He has taken advantage of the Republican parties historical “it is now your turn” style of choosing a candidate. He won’t be able to benefit from that when his lack of ideas that coincide with what the voters want become exposed in the race for president. Anyone who could start a debate in 2008 with “yes i think the american people are better off than they were 8 years ago” should be beaten with a bat until sanity returns.
Nothing personal John. You’re just a petulant little asshole who has been around so long nobody will call you on it.
Mitt: you just look wrong, dude. What common guy with a budweiser in his hand and his shrew of a wife cooking dinner barefoot in the kitchen could ever vote for someone with that perpetually pedantic look on their face.? I think you’d blow the rest away on the economy, except Ron Paul. It’s not your turn Mitt…that’s why republicans keep showing you thier backsides.
Ron Paul: I’m not sure why he wasn’t there tonight. He’s the only conservative in the race, and should’ve been at the debate. Oh, you say he was there? CNN and Andderson Cooper will disagree with you.
Mike: God you suck. Go back to preaching. The seperation of church and state is supposed to protect us from religious zealotry. It hasn’t for the last 8 years, but it truly is time for a change.
What it comes down to on the Republican side is do we wish to have a president willing to squander away all this nation has achieved into the moneypit in Iraq or do we want someone who can lead us away from American Imperialism. As Ron Paul isn’t even recognized, and McCain is being deified, I reckon we have our answer. For the first time since I started voting I’ll be voting democrat.
Ain’t We Got Fun?October 7, 2008
My, my, my. Isn’t this just a pickle? I like being right, but there is a limit.I’m here to tell you, I’ve never had this much fun, and I’ve been to two world fairs and a goat fucking. Politics, finance, world order itself hang in the balance, and it gets no better than that.
In just the last month as I reckon it the federal government has injected or is on the verge of injecting over TWO Trillion (that’s trillion with a T) bucks into the financial market. What comes after trillion? it’s million,billion, trillion….but what comes next? Whatever it is, we’ve sunk a quarter of one of them into this mess. In fact, I’m not even counting the fannie and freddie buyout, so probably more like 3 trillion.
Yet, amazingly, no one is to blame. I keep stopping as I write this. Laughter overcomes me. A complete and utter dearth of leadership has created the situation, and suddenly we find that the two candidates aren’t really capable of leading either. Given an incredibly devastating economic crisis just 2 months prior to the election, and McCain panics whilst Obama cowers. The cowering isn’t exactly a surprise. It conforms to both the voting record, and the lack of forthrightness on the part of Barack. The panic was a little surprising. I take it that’s what a bonafide hero does when faced with a situation beyond his understanding. Lacking the tools to capture the essence of the crisis it is better to do be doing something useless than nothing at all. I remember the mindset clearly from my time in the military. I believe they teach it at The Basic Officers Course.
So what we have is a candidate willing to trounce longtime friendships as if they mean nothing, and a candidate incapable of dealing with those issues not related to beans, bullets, and bandages. Let’s look back:
We could’ve had Hillary. Mitt. Guiliani. A host of others. All uniquely unqualifed, but gifted with the egocentricity needed to believe one capable of performing that job. Bill probably would be nice to have around right now. Would be nice if he hadn’t used up his term limits before he achieved wisdom. Oh well. What we have are these two knuckleheads. Both of whom, coincidently, have less executive experience, and less personal appeal than the vice presidential candidate. The hockey mom. Not the inveterate liar and longtime defender of current social policy that has us where we are today. Of course, I’m partial to a well turned calve. Beats worn out political bullshit everytime.
Anyway. I just came by to chuckle. Spending what you don’t have got us here. Blame whoever you want, but that’s what did it. Your friends, neighbors, coworkers…maybe you, maybe a little me. that’s who got us here. Bad spending, atrocious voting. Accepting that in a free and democratic society the government should be bailing out private enterprise. We suck folks, and we just keep sucking. Come the first Tuesday in November we’re going to suck again. We chose these two to lead us to the promised land? We’re we drinking? Hopped up on speedballs and Latte’? Whatever the case. This is frigging hilarious.
awkward conciliatory and encouraging afterward:
If your job is sound, and you aren’t in hock up to your genitalia; if you spend little and conserve copiously you should come through this mess ok. If not, well, tough shit. You were warned.
