IT'S HARD TO LOOK AWAY...
From a You-Know-What...

I used to blog every day, sometimes two or three times a day, as you'll find out if you go back thru my archives...well, I don't do that anymore. Or do I? This week has really been rich with news, and when I heard about today's developments, A Picture Popped Into My Mind, and the urge to post blasted away inside my skull. First, the gory details...

Repubblican Prezzidential candidate, senator John McCain's been spreading comments alluding to, but never quite saying, that Barack Obama is some flamethrowing Arab Terrorist Subversive Fascist, and McCain's supporters have swallowed the bait...at a Republican rally-type appearance today, McCain found himself having to DEFEND His Opponent! "Barack Obama is a nice guy, not someone you have to be afraid of"...and McCain's supporters actually BOOED when McCain said that! If that's not enough, here's something else for ya...

A bi-partisan committee of the Alaska State Legislature has found that McCain's Running Mate, Sarah Palin (The "Sarracuda") ABUSED HER POWER as Governor when she got a State Trooper Fired for personal, conflict-of-interest-type reasons. Palin's husband evidently was the one who instigated this whole thing, and it's obvious Sarah didn't put the brakes on her husband. All of this is now boiling and festering, and threatens to throw the campaign, well, off-track...

In short, it's hard to look away from a you-know-what...



All of this reminds me of a Journalism teacher I had back in my college days...we were learning about headline composition, and he told us never to refer to politicians as "Solons", because being a "Solon" implies that one is Wise...

I'm especially proud of this post. It came to me in a flash, and I typed it in a flash; the picture was really a lot of fun. BTW, did you see the footage of the (not very bright) lady telling McCain, "I can't trust Obama...he's an ARAB"...and McCain had to Stick Up for his opponent! McCain oughta give up and join the circus, where his skills would be more appreciated...as a CLOWN.

I did see that clip. I laughed. He has let so much slide by but he couldn't let that comment go! He'd have been hung and quartered by the press. His defense of Obama was rather half-hearted though don't you think?

Well, Mari, McCain is 'old school' so of course he did the honorable thing. But he couldn't sound too enthused, since His Own Crowd was already Booing Him for making half-hearted, let alone sincere statements in Support of Mr. Obama.
