John McCain Is A Big Fat Liar, But That's Not A News Flash Around These Parts

Somebody had better buy John McCain a dictionary. After his big grandstand play of announcing he was halting his campaign to zip back to Washington to focus on this latest national crisis, even going so far as to cancel Friday's debate, he "promised to suspend his campaign, cancelling all advertisements and events, after a speech in New York."

Erm...

Except that as I was sitting on my couch at home in Ohio last night, I was treated to no less than half a dozen McCain ads sleazing their way across my television, spreading their lies and pandering their campaign garbage right into my living room. I want everyone to know that.

He just never, ever stops.

Perhaps along with inventing the Blackberry, he's invented a new meaning of the word "cancel".

This creature reminds me of the kid everyone hates on the playground in first grade who, when you get in an argument with him, resorts to just repeating every single thing you say. That's McCain's strategy. "Hope," says Obama. "Hope," says McCain. "Change," says Obama. "Change," says McCain. "We have a woman running for our office," say the Dems. "I've got one now, too," says McCain.

He's been pandering for so long that it's just the way he does business. He's a Play-Doh Man: he just morphs into whatever he's looking at, into whomever he's talking to, into the very person he needs to be at the time in order to get what he wants. He's the politician's politician.

Now he pulls the big fast one--pretends that he's "putting the country first." Bullshit. Obama's poll numbers are up and Palin's news cycle is in the toilet. Everyone knows that McCain will blow into D.C. and try to act like he's the Seventh Cavalry and Jesus all in one and save his reputation as an Economy Dunce. Sadly, some Limbaugh-Louts will suck it down like the KoolAid it is.

Me, I'm onto it. And I've got to hope that there are plenty more like me who are, too.

  2. Love the cartoon, Nance! ;-) Just wish that it didn't reflect the truth so accurately. I'd really like to have two great choices for President. Anyway, I totally agree with you. Love the "Bullshit" especially. One of my favorite words of all time! I do think there are far too many drinking the KoolAid. This author of this blog (http://www.noblepig.com/) that I read and enjoy posted concerns about Obama today and, boy, did folks jump on the anti-Obama bandwagon. There are only a few voices of reason; i.e., Obama supporters. Trying to think of a reasonable comment to post there, but thinking it would be all for naught. I hate to say it, but I am afraid the deluded will continue to stay deluded. I am just hoping there are enough folks who are not deluded to tip the scales our way--that is, the country's way.

  3. So interesting to me that McCain--who was completely RAVAGED by the Republican machine in 2000 (saying he was gay, had a lovechild, had a drug addicted wife--okay that was true) and now he's totally on board with doing the same to someone else.

  4. apathy lounge--i've found so many politicians like that, though. republicans, esp. it's all about the winning. very Roveian. Obama's campaign released a statement that lit McShame up for his duplicitousness: "John McCain sought to change the subject from his out-of-touch response to the economic crisis with a big announcement that he was 'suspending' his campaign. But the only thing McCain really wants suspended is the American people's disbelief. In fact, he's been in full campaign mode the entire time...

    "When McCain finally arrived in Washington, almost twenty-four hours after his announcement -- and after Congressional leadership announced a deal in principle -- he huddled with his lobbyist campaign advisors while his running mate held a political rally and his political spokesmen and surrogates were out in full force, continuing to attack Barack Obama.

    "So make no mistake: John McCain did not 'suspend' his campaign. He just turned a national crisis into an occasion to promote his campaign. It's become just another political stunt, aimed more at shoring up the Senator's aimed more at shoring up the Senator's political fortunes than the nation's economy. And it does nothing to help advance this critical legislation to protect the American people during this time of economic crisis."


    shirley--i continue to hope fervently that the young people, the new voters, the minority voices who are finally represented by Barack Obama, and the formerly disenfranchised will turn out in force in this election. we cannot have more Dark Times.

    nina--i know. and we have to do our part to illuminate those in darkness!!

  5. I watched about an hour of the debate tonight before getting thoroughly bored and going upstairs to watch my brand new Sex & The City Movie DVD. I know that's wrong of me.

    Even more wrong is the belief that I have that McCain is a bad choice for America, but still better than Shrub. Is that wrong of me? I refuse to vote for someone because they are less horrible. And with his temper, and his rolling over and taking it from Shrub, and his lack of economic knowledge, who knows, he might actually be worse for our country than Shrub, though god knows, that's hard to imagine.

    God, I hope Obama wins. I don't know if my husband remembers this, but way back in the primaries, I remember him saying, if McCain gets the nomination, he'll win. Really? I thought....Hell, I think, I hope not. So say we all. (OK, that's my TOTAL dork factor coming out there! Sorry.)

  6. j.@jj--i watched the debate and was struck by how incoherent and fussypants McShame was. He even mouthed his own campaign slogans: "I'm the original maverick" "Washington is broken"

    He wasn't presidential, didn't have command of any subject, and seemed far too cranky and snarky to be a cool-headed leader of a free nation.

    As far as being better than The Angel of Death, that's a moot point. My concern is: why find out? We already know he's a republican. REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP GOT US INTO THE MESS THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY IN, WHETHER IT IS BOTH OF THE WARS, THE ECONOMIC DISTRESS, THE LOWERED WORLD REPUTATION, OR OUR ENERGY DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL. WHY ON EARTH GIVE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY ANOTHER SHOT AT US? duh.
