The Yanks Are Coming! McCain Is Unfit to Lead--And He's Not Funny Either...
The Red Sox, hot on the heels of yesterday's come from behind 5-3 victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto (I think Gibbons showed way too quick a hook with Roy Halladay--Thanks John!). welcome the New York Yankees to Fenway Park for a three game series starting with Curt Schilling versus Andy Pettitte tonight. A-Rod has ten home runs (including a game-winning three-run bomb in yesterday's Yanks victory over the Indians). Big Papi has five, and Manny hit his first yesterday (a game-tying shot off of Scott Marcum after Halladay was pulled). Let's start the insanity!
But now, here are is a news story I just couldn't ignore. Let's call it...
McCain Makes Bad, Old Joke
WASHINGTON - The liberal group MoveOn.org is launching an ad against Republican John McCain and his joke about bombing Iran, arguing that the nation "can't afford another reckless president."
The group plans to spend about $100,000 to air a commercial on network and some cable television stations in Iowa and New Hampshire, states that hold early contests in the presidential nomination process, spokesman Alex Howe said Friday.
McCain, campaigning Wednesday in South Carolina, answered a question about military action against Iran with the chorus of the surf-rocker classic "Barbara Ann."
"That old, eh, that old Beach Boys song, Bomb Iran," he said. "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah ..." His audience laughed, but MoveOn.org called the comment dangerous.
"America has lived through six years of a reckless foreign policy," an announcer says in the ad. "We're stuck in Iraq. More than 3,000 Americans are dead. And thousands more wounded. "Now comes John McCain with his answer to what we should do about Iran. John McCain? We can't afford another reckless president."
The group ran ads in the same states in January, criticizing the Arizona senator's support for sending more troops to Iraq.
McCain defended the joke during a campaign stop in Nevada on Thursday. "Please, I was talking to some of my old veterans friends," he told reporters in Las Vegas. "My response is, Lighten up and get a life." Asked if his joke was insensitive, McCain said: "Insensitive to what? The Iranians?"
That response sums up perfectly why John McCain is not qualified to be president. He has become a Bush clone, and that is simply something we definitely do not need.
McCain, for those of you who haven't been paying attention, lost whatever credibility he had during Campaign 2000 when he became a waterboy for then Governor Lazy SOB, even after the future Preznit's campaigners lit up the phones of South Carolinians prior to Super Tuesday to tell voters that McCain was "unbalanced" from his time in Vietnam as a POW, and that he had fathered a black baby. Instead of fighting back, he surrendered, then became one of Bush's biggest cheerleaders.
McCain's idiotic remarks show how completely unfit for command he truly is. He and Joe Lieberman (D-R in Sheep's Clothing) have so thoroughly tied themselves to Preznit Flight Suit Fantasy that there they are in the Land of No Return. Their moronic "surge" plan is now in place, and they now share in the blame for the tragedy that is going on in Iraq. McCain's phony walking tour of Baghdad, which was followed by the worst single day of violence in that city since the invasion shows how out of touch he is on this issue.
I ackshully voted for him in the Massachusetts primary as a pre-emptive strike against Bush, not because I believed for one nanosecond the bile he spewed from the "Straight Out Of His Ass Talk Express" (He once took three different positions on abortion in a 48-hour span), but because I saw the momentum that Bush's campaign had been getting. That and the fact that the "liberal press" refused to ask him anything more complicated to answer than: "What's your favorite color?" I figured that McCain, as flawed as he was, was bound to be better than Bush. Little did I know to what depths he'd crawl to ingratiate himself with the man and his crooked family.
To say McCain has been a disappointment would be a HUGE understatement. I used to value his independence, and thought that he might make a fine president one day. Those thoughts were quickly wiped away once I saw how eager he was, and how far he was willing to bend over for the BFEE. A close friend opined, during Campaign 2004, before John Kerry (D-I'd Rather Be Windsurfing) chose John Edwards as his running mate, that McCain would be a good choice for the job. A "dream ticket" was the description used. I quickly persuaded my friend that such a notion was fatally flawed, and McCain quickly fulfilled my lowered expectations as the war dragged on, as Bush got a second term, and even now with the Democrats forgetting they are now the majority in Congress. Well, if there is any solace to be taken in all this, it is that John McCain has as much chance of being inaugurated President on January 20, 2009 as I do of marrying Jessica Alba and living a life of indolent pleasure in a penthouse suite overlooking Sydney Harbour. Buh-Bye John...
