John McCain : Maverick or Desperado ??

What a pain in the ASCII

While we take a few moments (very few indeed) to ponder the question of which cowboy nick-name is more suitable for Sen. John “Loop-hole” McCain, let’s also consider that in the year 2008, the Senator confesses that he actually does not have much experience in functioning on the Internet.  This, singularly, is one of the most astounding admissions conceivable.  It is the equivalent of a public official in the 1940’s not being familiar with ‘how to use a telephone.’

Interestingly enough, John McCain could really use the Internet, if nothing else, to put at his fingertips, information that has seemed to escape his reach.  Even if just used as a safe-guard against a bad memory or keeping up with current events, the tools available would likely prevent pandering gaffes such as when the

confused Senator told a Pittsburgh CBS News Affiliate reporter that he told his North Vietnamese captors the names of the Pittsburgh Steelers defensive line, when interrogated about the names of those in his unit. Of course, the surroundings may have been responsible for McCain’s error, or perhaps some confusion over Pittsburgh and Green Bay, Wisconsin, or perhaps John McCain’s desperation.  Nonetheless, there is ample evidence that McCain had, until that day in Pittsburgh, told the story differently – in fact – the offensive line of Green Bay. We’re not suggesting that Senator McCain is a liar, after all, his POW status alone apparently permits him to manipulate the truth, by-pass press scrutiny and claim super-veteran status over we mere veterans – but we are suggesting that he’s often … confused.

While the corporate media lines their articles and commentary with pillows for the elderly Senator – there is still no evidence forthcoming that John McCain has experience in team-building or capacity for leadership in any manner.  Simply stated, to the extent that he hasn’t taken a 20 minute break in the last 10 years to understand the exponential reach of an Internet browser, is mind-boggling.

Straight-talk ?

we plead for pedestrians to consider the McCain ‘ride’ the “Straight-Jacket Express.”

To quote ourselves, John McCain has more about faces than a Naval Drill Team.  His campaign ship-of-state is apparently structured in the same manner as a Jenga game and is routinely lying in ruins, though quickly reassembled to catch the breezes from the next news cycle. Sending out his aggressive surrogates to criticize Obama at all costs and to explain why Obama is wrong.  This practice has back-fired a number of times, but nonetheless, Team McCain’s commitment to developing the most despicable and shameful Presidential campaign in the history of the United States is apparently a goal they may have in the bag.

The only time that he seems somewhat competent is when he is mouthing the central points of scripts

provided by his handlers and confidants.  However, he appears to be most confident when he occasionally goes renegade and terrorizes the public with his alleged keen vision and commentary. Apparently his admirers appear to become nervous these days, as he flashes, what can only be described as a ‘creepy smile’ while he displays the same lack of statesmanship as his chief supporter, George W. Bush.

Senator McCain has now turned the political campaign gaffe into an art-form, considering that he has made them almost daily for the last 2 months.  While the corporate media is either ignoring, downplaying or in the case of CBS news interview with Katie Couric simply editing them out of the story – true excitement seems to fill the air when the sometimes feeble Senator gets things right.  This in itself may be a part of the GOP strategy of sensory overload.  But nothing is more thrilling, as an observer of human behavior, to experience John McCain master the George Bush technique of answering a different question than what was asked, be completely wrong in his assessment, or punctuate his answers with strange facial expressions or ill-timed creepy smiles.

We can only consider his departures from already hackneyed and uninspiring platitudes quite thrilling – in a morbidly curious sort of way – and we plead for beleaguered pedestrians to consider the McCain ‘ride’ the “Straight-Jacket Express” and a very dangerous option.  Dangerous in the sense that John McCain is desperate – his campaign is depserate – and – his party is desperate.  He is truly … a Desperado.

Obama v. Hillary McCain? Democrat v. Republicrat? Patty Duke?

But perhaps tax returns aren’t the only issue. Perhaps the Hillary McCain alliance was built long ago as plan B. Here’s our brief overview:

Bill Clinton from NYT Political Blog – The Caucus – Full 25 Jan 08 Article Here – “She and John McCain are very close,” he said. “They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.”

Hillary McCain – It’s The Patty Duke Show

We were incredibly moved by the unity of John McCain and Hillary Clinton. Then it dawned on us – two of a kind ??

Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty’s only seen the sights
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights —
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control —
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike —
You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

Our Sincere Apologies

We were unable cope with any Democrat aiding and abetting the Hillary Clinton campaign for reaching so far into the pandering bag after realizing that Obama was very attractive to swing voters. Additionally she has intimated that she has already been President, a close confidant during decision making times, and has been a steward of the people’s trust – therefore tested. Apparently, her sole commitment to deliver a health-care solution in the last decade was a total bust – done in the dark – and to NO avail … but we digress.

Our apology is for having some fun with an issue that is not at funny. That being said – we were unable to produce any written word that wasn’t apparently hate filled and offensive and further damage to the seriously wounded Democratic message. We decided instead, to chill … and have a brief chortle. We hope you did too.
