Go Ahead, Vote for McCain, You Cunts!

John McCain's temper is well documented. He's called opponents and colleagues "shitheads," "assholes" and in at least one case "a fucking jerk."

But that is not the most incredible story circulating "out there."

In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

now, is cindy wife #1 or wife #2?
just trying to figure out if he was being a meanie-head to the wife he was leaving or to the incoming wife. don't know why, but it seems more offensive (imo) if he was calling his crippled wife names, as opposed to the beer heiress/beauty queen/way2young4him wife.

also, since republicans had such a difficult time accepting a ketchup heiress last cycle, do ya think they'll have any trouble w/ the beer heiress?

Fire in his belly is another reason he is a better candidate. Hillary has that same fire and also. If this is all you got, name-calling, this should be a walk over. I find it ironic.

Reasons Obama gets votes:
He is 50% black
He is the DNC nominee (for the moment)
He is a smooth speaker (as long as he has the cue cards)
He is new with almost no DC experience.

I hope my airline pilot this afternoon has more qualifications than that. Obama has never run anything and has accomplished nothing in DC. He hangs out with terrorist and bigots and apologizes for something stupid almost weekly. The party has let us down again and it is time to teach them a lesson. Hillary in 12!

Cindy McCain is John McCain's current wife... you know those Republicans, spout off about family values but they just can't seem to stay married to the same person for very long.

Cindy McCain may be a beer heiress, but it is as a middleman. Her father ran a beer distributorship in Arizona; they didn't make beer. For some this may not be much difference, but it is to me as middlemen may make markets, but little else.

Just another reason to vote for the candidate instead of for the party. Americans are to readily willing to give away their vote to their party.

The three leading candidates for their party's nomination were and are being discussed in terms of their demographics race, sex and age as if that is what the job is about.

One of the painful aspects of studying great catastrophes of the past is discovering how many times people were preoccupied with trivialities when they were teetering on the edge of doom. The demographics of the presidency are far less important than the momentous weight of responsibility that office carries.

Although Senator Obama has presented himself as the candidate of new things -- using the mantra of 'change' endlessly -- the cold fact is that virtually everything he says about domestic policy is straight out of the 1960s and virtually everything he says about foreign policy is straight out of the 1930s.

Protecting criminals, attacking business, increasing government spending, promoting a sense of envy and grievance, raising taxes on people who are productive and subsidizing those who are not -- all this is a re-run of the 1960s.

We paid a terrible price for such 1960s notions in the years that followed, in the form of soaring crime rates, double-digit inflation and double-digit unemployment. During the 1960s, ghettoes across the countries were ravaged by riots from which many have not fully recovered to this day.

The violence and destruction were concentrated not where there was the greatest poverty or injustice but where there were the most liberal politicians, promoting grievances and hamstringing the police.

Internationally, the approach that Senator Obama proposes including the media magic of meetings between heads of state was tried during the 1930s. That approach, in the name of peace, is what led to the most catastrophic war in human history.

Everything seems new to those too young to remember the old and too ignorant of history to have heard about it.

so, are you actually thomas sowell, opinion writer, or just ripping him off?

coreydbarbarian said...

i'm guessing the latter, given the way you carefully selected which paragraphs to include from the original opinion.

Whoever wrote this --> "Protecting criminals, attacking business, increasing government spending, promoting a sense of envy and grievance, raising taxes on people who are productive and subsidizing those who are not" is trying to be polarizing. Prove that any particular candidate is "protecting criminals" please. And "promoting...envy and grievance"? Please. Whoever wrote this is a thundering asshole of colossal proportions.

Thomas Operation Dumbo Drop is under the control of a man who cannot even choose a pastor and associates who don't hurt his pubic image. The man is a great actor, but cut from the same cloth of those he associates with. Do you really expect anything more from Dumbo? No new ideas just reinstituting the same failed policies of yesteryear.

this.

anon when supporters of a man cannot defend their man they resort to attacking his revival. In essence this is acknowledgment that their man has serious issues. An unsubstantiated remark made 16 years ago hardly rivals 20 years under a questionable pastor and other dubious associates but that is all they have to hang their hopes on.

I didn’t even mention Barrack's desire to reenact failed policies of Carter with the large oil companies. He has no new ideas, just a change back into yesteryear. Freshness, color and inexperience should not be the hallmarks of an American president. Cling to your guns and Bibles now in the event he becomes the next Jimmy Carter. Hilary knows it and wait her next opportunity in 4 years.

boy, it is fun watching you folks squirm! by all means keep posting your, uhm, opinions.

btw, it isn't really safe to assume we cannot defend "our man" simply because we didn't. speaking for only myself, i just didn't see any valid criticisms worthy of a rebuttal.

you're no thomas sowell, but feel free to keep pretending.
