john mccain, you silly old man.

McCain

So that I actually feel informed on the seemingly overwhelming world of politics, I have a couple of daily briefings emailed to me. One of these is MSNBC’s First Read. In their afternoon email today, a particular issue caught my eye. McCain (who, according to the above photo, is also an irritating fist-pumper) had scheduled a fundraiser at the home of Texas oil man Clayton Williams, the man who in 1990 said about rape, “It’s like the weather, if it’s inevitable, relax and enjoy it.” Um, yeah. Well even though this was a HUGE issue back in 1990, made national news, and essentially killed Williams’ campaign for governor of Texas, McCain claims that he and his staffers didn’t know about the controversial comment. (More on that here; I’m not the expert, these guys are.) Also, according to MSNBC, “the word ‘rape’ is in the title of the third link that comes up in a ‘Clayton Williams’ Google search.” In McCain’s defense, he’s like 300 years old and is probably still figuring out how to send an email.

    Guliani says “we picked the presidency for their judgment” how funny! He supports John McCain who chose Sara Palin as the second in command rather then the 2 men he wanted because of political agenda. So much for “America first” or good judgement! Well this america is not going fool for the gimmick! Johm McCain proves, he is not only a Maverick for not standing up to his party and picked the man he wanted for VP, but also has a poor judgment picking Palin when there are alot more republican women out there in congress who has alot more experience and well qualified for the job! I can’t see how Palin can take over Cheney’s role in helping McCain when it comes to the country’s foreign and national security, especialy with the war in Iraq when she herself said she has no interest in! Good one McCain!
