John McCain showed up angry and beat the pants off the pleasant well spoken guy. McCain spent lots of time talking about how he would fix the $18 billion dollars a year in earmarks though! The Iraq war given us by Republicans cost $600 billion and just this weeks bailout of Republican unregulated economics cost us $700 billion. That’s almost ONE HUNDRED TIMES more than what McCain is whining about. 100 times as much! 100X!
The economic fix was boring as they agreed with whatever was going on, though McCain did denigrate BIG GOVERNMENT when it came to health care, complaining about BIG GOVERNMENT is always a winner for Americans.
McCain dropped the word "Patraeus" more times than Lindsay Graham at a VFW rally. He pounded the drum for the good war in Iraq, the even better war in Afghanistan, the coming war with Iran, the border war with Pakistan, and the new war with Russia where we have to defend not only Georgia but now the Ukraine too.
McCain did so well with all this jingo madness even I was standing in the middle of the room singing God Bless America. And while I sang Obama did little other than agree with him.
There is nothing this nation of intelligent voters loves more than wars, and lots of them, all at the same time too it seems. And guns and Jesus. War, guns and Jesus - though I am not sure what order it goes. Oh, and just for a little reality check, put RACE somewhere in the list.
We are in deep deep trouble. Trailer park politics has finally done us in.
