Palin/McCain: KILL HIM! Are you serious?

KILL OBAMA!

OFF WITH HIS HEAD!

TERRORIST!

We live in a time that has witnessed atrocity’s that rival those of the greatest evil to ever inhabit the human form. We’ve seen people beheaded on television for nothing more than publicity. We’ve seen women stoned to death for falling in love with a man of another religion. We’ve seen young girls raped by thugs masquerading as militants keeping people in line, and we witnessed thousands of innocent people die in the single most horrific attack on this nation ever.  Each and every one of us live with the notion that maybe, just maybe a terrorist will plot to blow up a bridge we cross, a train we ride, a building we work at, or store where we shop.

We know these things are real because we’ve seen them up front and personal, but we don’t hide, we don’t crawl into a bunker and pray the bad guys will disappear, we stand up straight and walk out of our homes every day as Americans proud of who we are and most importantly knowing that when confronted by those who would do us harm – our nation harm – or our countrymen harm, we will stand tall and defend ourselves, our families and our neighbors.  What we have witnessed in the last week from John McCain and Sarah Palin defies logic, defies reason and most importantly defies every single principle John McCain has stood for in his 72 years on this planet.

On at least three occasions this week McCain or Palin have held rallies where screams of hatred or chants of death to Obama (parapharsed) were hurled from the crowds in loud unmistakable fashion. If you didn’t know better you would think the rally was being held in the streets of Tehran or in Lebanon. But no, these were Americans chanting death to another American.  Threats to kill a man,, who like McCain,, believes in his country and wants to be president to serve the greater good of the people. 

Amazingly, neither McCain or Palin, halted their prepared speech’s and condemned those hurling the disrespectful remarks aimed at Barack Obama. In fact, the point could and should be made that the candidates themselves in-sighted the very hatred of these people by referring to  Barack’s middle name Hussain and continuing to imply that he “pals around with terrorists” an outrageous assertion of such magnitude that it boggles the imagination, it’s just not true, and they know it.

This is not leadership, this is disgusting, it’s so beneath the American people and what we stand for as a nation its a travesty to watch.  I’m ashamed of John McCain.

I don’t care what your politics are, I’m serious, if McCain wants to call Obama a “Nigger” or “That One” then fine, but to stand idly by while your opponent, the father of two beautiful children and the husband of a lovely lady is threatened with death by a crowd of supporters you egged on, is not just wrong, but by any standard, UN-AMERICAN.  No one knows who the hell Sarah Palin is, but I’d like to know what the hell has happened to John McCain?

The War on Condoms

Q: “So no contraception, no counseling on contraception. Just abstinence. Do you think contraceptives help stop the spread of HIV?”

Mr. McCain: (Long pause) “You’ve stumped me.”

Q: “I mean, I think you’d probably agree it probably does help stop it?”

Mr. McCain: (Laughs) “Are we on the Straight Talk express? I’m not informed enough on it. Let me find out. You know, I’m sure I’ve taken a position on it on the past. I have to find out what my position was. Brian, would you find out what my position is on contraception – I’m sure I’m opposed to government spending on it, I’m sure I support the president’s policies on it.”

so apparently john mccain not only trumpets the failed abstinence only education program, but he also does not believe condoms help prevent AIDS.

wonderful.

Waffling on Waterboarding

in a republican presidential debate on Nov. 28 mccain said:

I would hope that we would understand, my friends, that life is not 24 and Jack Bauer. Life is interrogation techniques which are humane and yet effective. And I just came back from visiting a prison in Iraq. The army general there said that techniques under the Army Field Manual are working and working effectively, and he didn’t think they need to do
anything else.
My friends, this is what America is all about.

also:

“Anyone who knows what waterboarding is could not be unsure. It is a horrible torture technique used by Pol Pot and being used on Buddhist monks as we speak,” said McCain after a campaign stop at Dordt College here.
“People who have worn the uniform and had the experience know that this is a terrible and odious practice and should never be condoned in the U.S. We are a better nation than that.

but when the time came to put an end to this horrible practice, john mccain voted against banning water torture.

this was mccain’s excuse after the vote:

“I knew I would be criticized for it,” McCain told reporters Wednesday in Ohio. “I think I can show my record is clear. I said there should be additional techniques allowed to other agencies of government as long as they were not” torture.

compare that once again to his statement before the vote:

“Anyone who knows what waterboarding is could not be unsure. It is a horrible torture technique used by Pol Pot and being used on Buddhist monks as we speak,” said McCain after a campaign stop at Dordt College here.
“People who have worn the uniform and had the experience know that this is a terrible and odious practice and should never be condoned in the U.S. We are a better nation than that.

after the vote:

“I was on the record as saying that they could use additional techniques as long as they were not cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment,” McCain said. “So the vote was in keeping with my clear record of saying that they could have additional techniques, but those techniques could not violate” international rules against torture.
before the vote:

before:

“Anyone who knows what waterboarding is could not be unsure. It is a horrible torture technique used by Pol Pot and being used on Buddhist monks as we speak,” said McCain after a campaign stop at Dordt College here.
“People who have worn the uniform and had the experience know that this is a terrible and odious practice and should never be condoned in the U.S. We are a better nation than that.

if mccain had a problem with the specifics of the bill, he should’ve introduced his own version or his own amendments.

he didn’t do that.

instead, he went against his word and his supposed beliefs (yet again) in order to accomodate the far right wing of his party, which has been clamoring for water torture.

20th Century McCain Hates 21st Century McCain

something switched off in john mcCain’s head at the end of the millenium.

something switched that made him, over the last decade, consistently pander to the far-right, religious conservative wing of the republican party.

something switched and made him break his promises and commitments and values, and utterly derail his straight-talk express.

the 20th century john mccain has been replaced with a man who changes positions on a whim, sometimes within the same interview.

he’s been replaced by a man who rarely if ever admits that he was wrong and instead goes on the attack and claims that reporters are putting words in his mouth.

his one consistency is his support for the iraq war, and yet, he was wrong for the reasons to invade, he was wrong about it being easy, he was wrong about it going well, and he continues to be wrong about his escalation/”surge”.

21st century mccain doesn’t learn from his mistakes, this mccain either denies that he ever made them, or he compounds the mistake by making new ones (i.e. iraq).

the purpose of this blog is to do more than just knock mccain off his pedestal. it is also going to show that this guy is not the john mccain of before. that john mccain would hate this john mccain.

this john mccain is not the mccain independents love, this john mccain is a bush sycophant, and a loathsome panderer of the special interest groups.

so let’s hop on his straight-talk express, and watch it crash and burn….
