Pigs, John McCain and Changing Tides

Well, it looks like the tide is beginning to change.

Poor old (and I do mean old) McCain-the-Maverick has had a challenging last few days.

Seems even Republicans- some of which are very near the top of John McCain’s campaign- have had enough.

Karl Rove, in a statement that made me wonder if I should begin building a bunker in preparation for the Apocolypse, has stated McCain/Palin have gone too far with their most recent round of damn lies Obama-truth-stretching.

Huh.

Let’s allow that to sink in for a moment.

It’s worth repeating:

Karl Rove thinks the McCain camp has gone too far.

Wow.

Now that’s sayin’ somethin’.

In addition, Carly Fiorina has said- more than once- that neither John McCain nor Sarah Palin have what it takes to run a major corporation.

That ain’t a good thing… I mean… to ask the obvious question… if you can’t run a company… um… can you really run a country?

Hell no you can’t.

Sources say that while Ms. Fiorina will continue her membership of the Republican National Committee, and will remain the head of McCain’s joint fundraising committee, she is being punished severely for being such a bad girl.

Carly was scheduled to give quite a few interviews over the coming days… all of which have now been…

Uh…

Cancelled.

To quote a source (anonymous, of course) from the McCain camp, “Carly will now disappear”.

Yikes.

Sounds ominous.

The Rove/Fiorina fiascoes came while McCain was being called out for his lies by the ladies of The View, while his campaign spokesman- Tucker Bounds– was getting killed for their organization’s- again- lies- by a Fox News anchor no less… all while various Republican pundits were giving written statements to news publications about what a horrific veep choice McCain made- not to mention how desperate and disgusting his… yep, you guessed it… lies and smears have become.

I’m noticing a common denominator here… lots of folks are calling McCain a liar.

Over and over again.

Shameful.

Meanwhile, as Alan Greenspan was declaring that our economy is the worst he’s seen in his entire career… McCain was busy saying the opposite- that it’s “fundamentally strong”.

Oops.

The Senator was also forced to concede during an interview that contrary to the claims of his campaign, his own words, as well as his recent ads…

Obama did not, in fact, call Sarah Palin a pig.

Well duh.

But Whatever.

Moving on…

Just when it stopped bein’ fun out there for Mr. McCain, his young cohort “Pit-Bull-Palin-the-Hockey-Mom” was getting killed in the press as well… the Bridge to Nowhere that she was for before she was against… her fight to keep her husband’s e-mails secret with regards to the Troopergate scandal… her insatiable (and vindictive) appetite for firing people for merely looking at her the wrong way… the realization that all the Communications degrees in the world (I don’t care how many different colleges you went to) won’t teach you that Georgia is not part of NATO… or what the Bush Doctrine really is…

Throughout all of it, McCain’s puppy dogs are doing their best to keep our focus on such bullshit as lipstick, pigs and sex ed for Kindergartners.

Mercy.

  1. To be quite honest, the ‘Palin effect’ is wearing off. For a while, it was all anyone could talk about. I think we are now beginning to see the real implications of electing the Republicans.

    The way I see it, from the viewpoint of an outsider peering in, the Republicans are offering a ‘nice’ deal, but it’s just not enough. The USA needs a real leader, one to bring change and reform to a society that’s broken.

  2. Man, being called a liar by Karl Rove is like a political lay-down misere: you can only outdo it with something even worse, which (hopefully) you don’t have.

    On the other hand: tee-hee!

  3. It is quite entertaining to watch this little circus. The emcee trying to divert our attention so the “magic” won’t be revealed, but the laugh is on them… this circus has a horrible emcee.
    I hooted and hollared when The View ladies busted his chops. Nicely done ladies, nicely done. I haven’t grinned that big since I got engaged.

    So, grab your popcorn and your oversized soda. Now, sit back and enjoy the show!
