Last night, gunfire was exchanged between Pakistani and American troops (and Afghani troops as well). This may not have been a particularly big deal, but minor incidents like this can turn into decades of strife and warfare when people like George Bush, Sarah Palin, and that selfish addled moron the Republicans have nominated to run for President, John McCan’t, are in charge.
I am deeply annoyed at the selfish and cowardly stunt McCain pulled earlier this week. As the Herbert Hoover of the presidential candidates, the only thing McCain can do to have even the slightest chance of winning this election is to produce a series of hail Mary stunts in the hope that the well documented stupidity of roughly half of the American Electorate (“Which half?” you ask? The stupid half, you know of whom I speak) will save his sorry ass.
Did this latest cowardly stunt of pretending to ‘suspend’ his campaign to rush off to fix everything in Washington have a negative effect on the actual process of pulling the Banking Industry’s nuts out of this particular fire?
I think Chris Dodd was right when he said “What this looked like to me was a rescue plan for John McCain for two hours” referring to McCain’s ungainly and distracting appearance on the scene in Washington.
What McCain did was exactly what the Republicans have been doing all along: Wrap oneself up in the appropriate flag, insist that everyone else is being partisan, then dive in with the most partisan strategy possible. “When you start injecting presidential politics into delicate negotiations, you can actually injet more problems, rather than less.” (Not the best put statement I’ve ever heard from Obama, but totally correct, of course.)
John McCain is a Coward. John McCain is an annoying moron. Sarah Palin makes John McCain look good. In a funny, demented, sick kind of way.
Who is advising this guy? Actually, he is being advised by a pack of crooks and miscreants, the usual Republican crew, including the notorious Charlie Black, lobbyist of the damned who will some day be in jail; Lobbyist and former Reagan advisor, Rick Davis; Bush-Cheney spokesman Steve Schmidt; Lindsey Graham: One of the key architects of the Clinton impeachment; Bill McInturf, architect of the “Harry and Louise” campaign to drive a stake into Hillary Clinton’s health care plan during the Clinton Administration.
Let’s try this instead:
If you want to send a message, give the Obama campaign ten bucks. If a zillion of us do that, there will be a bump in his funding at his particular moment. How will that look? Very good, I suspect. That will truly send a message.
Or wait until just after the debate, tonight. If there is a debate. Hey, if there is not debate, I’m giving Barack 20 bucks….. and a head of lettuce.
