John Mc Cain Rejoins the Human Race, If Only for a Moment
(h/t to Tengrain)
I saw this video for the first time yesterday, and afterward I thought to myself-
Yep, this is what you wanted Asshole. Too late to turn back now.
But after viewing it a second time, and reading an article about the first debate, I’m giving Mc Thuselah the benefit of the doubt.
It’s a little known fact, but your Humble Author wanted Mc Cain to defeat Chimpy in 2000, and if he had, I would have seriously considered voting for him.
I know, it’s Insane, right?
At that time, Mc Cain actually was a “Maverick,” (For a politician) and for the most part, his stances were fairly Moderate, especially when compared to Chimpy.
And the Democratic Choice?
Al Gore is, and shall Fovever Be, an Arrogant Twat.
I also really Enjoyed hearing Mc Cain refer to the Robertson/Falwell crowd as-
Agents of Intolerance.
(Something the Candy Ass Democrats would never do).
So, it was either Mc Cain or Nader.
The article I read, and of course I can’t find it now, pointed out another possible explanation for Mc Cain’s “Dis” of Obama.
He felt Ashamed, and Angry.
According to the writer, Mc Cain was very Upset that the campaign had taken such a Nasty Turn, and memories from 2000 were beginning to Dance in His Head.
For those of you unaware, in the 2000 Republican Presidential Primary, Chimpy’s Team, aka Karl Rove, started a “Whisper/Phantom Campaign” against Mc Cain in an attempt to derail his Momentum (Before the South Carolina Primaries, Mc Cain was kicking Chimpy’s Yokel Ass).
The Phantom Campaign attempted, and succeeded in doing Two Things-
1) It stirred up the Racist Base of the Republican Party by creating a “Rumor” that Mc Cain had an “Illegitimate Daughter with a Black Woman” (His adopted daughter Bridget).
2) It brought Mc Cain’s Psychological Stability into question, by hinting that maybe Johnny was a little “Nuts” after spending so much time in a POW camp. The accusations even went so far as to make the claim that maybe Mc Cain had been brainwashed, and sent home as a Real Life “Manchurian Candidate.”
*Although I believe questions about his Mental Health are legit, the Cowardly Way in which it was brought up (Typical Wingnut) was, Despicable. If the Chimpy Campaign had honest concerns about Mc Cain’s Psychological Well Being, they should have had the Balls to Bring It to His Face. Instead, they did it behind his back, as the Little Bitches we know them to be.
Before I proceed, let me just say, I’m not reneging on my original observation that Mc Cain’s behavior during the first debate was Boorish, and Shameful.
He doesn’t like Obama, and I’m confident his personal feelings played a Role in his Decision to avoid Eye Contact with the Man.
I also know that Mc Cain isn’t a Moron. He’s well aware his party is Chock Fulla Rednecks, and that they were Chomping at the Bit to see the White Man put the “Nigger in His Place.”
Hell, after what happened in 2000, how could he not?
However, after watching the above video for the Second Time, and listening to the Crowd’s Reaction, I have to Own Up, and say what John Mc Cain did was-
Yes, He waited too long, and the Phantom Campaign against Obama, just as it did in 2000, found it’s way into the Real World.
I’m not making excuses for the Man nor I am Endorsing Him.
But, be honest, that TOOK BALLS!
Those people are Goddamn Loons, and they Want Blood.
Mc Cain, and I say this in All Seriousness, potentially put himself in Danger by standing up to that Feral Crowd.
Anyone who’s ever worked as a Counselor/Therapist/Psychologist can tell you-
People who live in Constant Denial, are potentially Fucking Dangerous. Their Intellectual, and Moral Rigidity is a Defense Mechanism, and some, Literally, believe if the Dam ever breaks They, The Very Essence of Who They Are, will Perish.
Never Underestimate the Power of Denial.
His supporters didn’t want to Hear Mc Cain call Obama a “Good Man,” they wanted to hear-
Terrorist! Traitor! Muslim! Nigger!
They didn’t want a moment of Sanity or Conscience.
They wanted their Surrogate Daddy to Offer Up a Scapegoat.
Whether you agree or not, I Give the Man Credit. It’s not as though he did it to Save His Campaign.
Far Too Late.
No, I think He Meant It, and I give him the Old Johnny Boy
Two Finger Salute
He’s still a Fool for allowing his Handlers to Select the Hee-Haw from Alaska.
Doggone, You Betcha, Don’tcha Know?
