DUMB AND DUMBER
John McCain for President? Here's a guy who graduated 790th out of a Naval Academy Class of 795. Why am I thinking Custer?
John McCain for President? A reckless, hot headed, undisciplined plebe who not only crashed several planes while in pilot training, but someone who was often disciplined for misbehavior during his undistinguished stay in Annapolis. Why am I thinking Lt. Commander Philip Francis Queeg?
John McCain for President? Arguably the man most responsible for officially abandoning hundreds of reportedly alive American POWs once held captive by the North Vietnamese. Don't believe me? Just check with Sydney H. Schanberg, awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his 1975 coverage of political and social chaos in Cambodia. His news reports and a best-selling book about his experiences in Southeast Asia became the basis for the Academy Award-winning film THE KILLING FIELDS.
Still don't believe me? Then I invite you to check with the vast majority of our nation's leading POW/MIA activists. Ironic, isn't it?
You see, since his celebrated return from the Hanoi Hilton this double-dealing, two-faced hypocrite has:
~Ignored pleas of POW/MIA Family Members for his political influence in the overall POW/MIA Issue as well as with their individual cases
~Verbally abused POW/MIA Family Members in public and private
~Attempted to negatively influence those who testified before the 1992 Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs
~Diminished legislation that gave oversight and protection to the families
~Dismantled protection to any future servicemen that go missing
Yes, over the years McCain has, at times almost single-handedly, pushed through Pentagon-desired legislation to make it virtually impossible for the public to acquire POW/MIA information and to make it much easier for the defense bureaucracy to keep these vitally important files hidden.
John McCain for President?
As Oliver Hardy would say to the Republican Party, "Well, this is another fine mess you've gotten us into."
It is 10:45 a.m. CDT on July 7, 2008. The up-to-the-minute current estimate is that the population of the United States has now reached 304,537,598.
Over three hundred four million Americans and we have settled on either John Sidney McCain III or Barack Hussein Obama as our next president. (Yes, Barack will be the subject of a future posting.)
I don't know about you, but I'd rather have the real Bozo as the Republican nominee...
