Awww, how can you be so upset when you look at those two having such a sweet little cuddle? I can just imagine them, snuggling together under the duvet, whispering to each other. “You fucked the country so badly, I wonder how it’ll feel when I try to fuck it harder?” Then they drift off to sleep, and make the rest of us poor saps sleep in the wet spot.
Hmmm….nice to see politics in all its glory. McCain may be an asshole in your eyes, but deserves some show of respect for his dedication to service to his country. I don’t think calling him an asshole will make a light go off in undecided voters to all of a sudden see Obama in a better light. My dad used to say one good thing about growing up in a communist country was that NOBODY got to call the leader of the country an asshole. Sometimes I think that isn’t all such a bad thing. After all, what’s wrong with curtesy and class?
He is an asshole when he wants to misconstrue his opponent’s position and sling mud, when he promised to run a cleaner campaign than that. I can honour and salute him for his service to our country and for going through a trial that no one should have gone through, and if his strength of character from 40 years ago was still showing in today’s political world I would find myself far more impressed with him. Instead, I see the same Karl Rove ad tactics, with the same Bush speechwriters giving him his stump speeches.
Anyone can be a soldier. It takes someone special to be a president.
I was not speaking of just his time in the military, but also all the years he has spent in politics when refering to his dedication to the US. Take a look at his record as a senator and you will see why he ticks off most republicans–he is about as close to a democrat as they get. I don’t like mud slinging no matter who does it, or in what arena it is done in. I think it lowers that person.
Just about anyone can be a soldier…that doesn’t make them a good soldier.
