Did I spell it right?
Personally, I’m still a bit shocked that we’re hearing the two weirdest states on the news all the time. I mean who, in 100 years would have thought that Alaska and Mississippi would have been at the center of political news for a sustained period of time. I remember even during the Democratic Primaries that it was weird as CNN was hoping across the country following the primaries to actually hear the name Mississippi and to see people do live shots from random towns in Mississippi of all places.
And then came Alaska–I mean, Wasilla!?!?!?
**scratches my head**
I think it really shows some weirdness on Sen. John McCain’s part because, come on, did you really think you were gonna get out of this? I mean you gave a good try–a REAL good try. I must tip my hat to the machination of this scheme, but get out of the first debate and then try and postpone the VP debates in it’s place?
Now McCain looks like a tottering Old Fool (as if he didn’t before) with him going back and forth. What did he really accomplish going to Washington, DC–not a DAMN thing. So, he left on Wednesday and according to all reports, he didn’t contribute to the talks yesterday on Thursday and then early this morning he was in Virginia and then by the 11 o’clock hour had let it be known he was headed to Oggsford Oxford for this evening. To say that enough progress has been made, ergo, I can now go to the debates, is the DUMBEST thing uttered this campaign. He must really think we’re idiots.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lit into McCain this morning in the 11am press conference and was talking like a Republican. I mean he was quite clear that the injection of presidential politics did not help them in this process.
The insertion of presidential politics has not been helpful. It’s been harmful … A few days ago I called on Senator McCain to take a stand, let us know where he stands on this issue … But all he has done is stand in front of the cameras. We still don’t know where he stands on the issue.”
So essentially he was saying the Old Fool was grandstanding in rare form.
That being said, I wonder how much preparation did John McCain get before going tete-a-tete with Sen. Barack Obama tonight? I pray that Obama’s been rehearsing for this for some time now. I wonder if McCain neglected to practice in lieu of this political stunt that has clearly backfired.
Of course I tuned into “The View” this morning flipping between what crazy thing Elisabeth “Miz Liz” Hasselbeck was going to say. And she got my blood pressure up, of course. Even though it was previously recorded show and they didn’t have the benefit of the stupidity of the last two days, but it still just pissed me off at the incessant stupidity of Miz Liz. I wonder is she an average white woman in her thoughts.
If I can go off on a tangent momentarily…
We in this country seriously play the identity politics and we have it down to a fine art. We hearken back to the ideal of an Andrew “I owned slaves and was damn proud of it” Jackson (our 7th president) and Abraham “I really don’t want to free the slaves” Lincoln who had this real “down home” feel to them because they don’t come from nobility. Clearly in this case the most wealthy guy running is John McCain, but yet and still because of Sarah “THE MOOSE” Palin, many Americans are identifying with the Republican party as though these people have their best interest at heart–and then at the same time misidentifying the Democrat ticket.
Can I park it right here for a minute?
Seriously, the Obama Waffles bit was such a sham of politics in this country it’s just sad. There’s a video of the two creators who try to explain the reason why Obama had on a Muslim headwrap in the caricature and they’re trying their best to not come of as snide idiots, but it doesn’t work well at all. The reporter pushes the envelope when he asks “Well you know he’s a member of the United Church of Christ?” and one of the jackasses says “So he says.”
Yes people, this is the type of stupidity we’re dealing with. At this point, after the Jeremiah “I’ve really gone into hiding” Wright controversy I’m convinced that certain Republican operatives are using this stuff as a wedge issue because they can get away with it. Sadly, it influences many swing voters, which is just a euphemism for “average white voters.”
Seriously people, what black person do you know who doesn’t know who they’re voting for.
Okay, end of tangent.
What did McCain really accomplish going up to Washington? Not a doggone thing! I just hope the dude doesn’t dodge any questions tonight and I hope Obama is prepared to answer questions about William Ayers, because that’s about Obama’s only Achilles’ Heel about now.
So are you able to see through this smoke and mirrors that McCain has put up to get out the debates? Do you really think that he accomplished something by going up to Washington? I mean, is there ANYTHING that he did that clearly has his fingerprints on it that history can point to and say, if John McCain hadn’t been there then x,y,z wouldn’t have happened. What are you expecting from the debates? If you had one question you wanted to ask the candidates, what would it be? (“Senator McCain, would you or have you ever eaten Obama Waffles brand waffle mix?)
Keep it uppity and keep it truthfully radical, JLL
