McCain sucks, and I couldn’t explain better myself.

GOP TO EDWARDS: HOW MUCH FOR THAT CONCESSION SPEECH?
January 30, 2008

The Democrats are trying to give away an election they should win in a walk by nominating someone with real problems — like, for example, a first-term senator with a 100 percent rating from Americans for Democratic Action and whose middle name is “Hussein.”

But we won’t let them.

The bright side of the Florida debacle is that I no longer fear Hillary Clinton. (I mean in terms of her becoming president — on a personal level, she’s still a little creepy.) I’d rather deal with President Hillary than with President McCain. With Hillary, we’ll get the same ruinous liberal policies with none of the responsibility.

Also, McCain lies a lot, which is really more a specialty of the Democrats.

Recently, McCain responded to Mitt Romney’s statement that he understood the economy based on his many years in the private sector by claiming Romney had said a military career is not a “real job.”

McCain’s neurotic boast that he is the only Republican who supported the surge is beginning to sound as insane as Bill Clinton’s claim to being the “first black president” — although less insulting to blacks. As with the Clintons, you find yourself looking up such tedious facts as this, which ran a week after Bush announced the surge:

“On the morning of Bush’s address, Romney endorsed a troop surge.” — The National Journal, Jan. 13, 2007

And yet for the 4 billionth time, at the Jan. 5, 2008, Republican debate, McCain bragged about his own raw courage in supporting the surge despite (apocryphal) Republican attacks, saying: “I said at the time that Gen. Petraeus and his strategy must be employed, and I was criticized by Republicans at that time. And that was a low point, but I stuck to it. I didn’t change.”

A review of contemporaneous news stories about the surge clearly demonstrates that the only Republicans who were so much as “skeptical” of the surge consisted of a few oddball liberal Republicans such as Sens. Gordon Smith, Norm Coleman and Olympia Snowe.

They certainly weren’t attacking McCain, their standard-bearer in liberal Republicanism. But even if they were, it was a “low point” for McCain being “criticized” by the likes of Olympia Snowe?

In point of fact, McCain didn’t even stand up to the milquetoasts. In April 2007, when Democrats in the Senate passed a bill funding the troops but also requiring a rapid withdrawal, “moderate” Republicans Smith and Chuck Hagel voted with the Democrats. McCain and Lindsey Graham skipped the vote.

But like the Democrats, McCain thinks if he simply says something over and over again, he can make people believe it’s true. Thus again at the South Carolina debate on Jan. 10, McCain was proclaiming that he was “the only one on this stage” who supported the surge.

Since he would deny it about two minutes later, here is exactly what Mr. Straight Talk said about the surge: “I supported that; I argued for it. I’m the only one on this stage that did. And I condemn the Rumsfeld strategy before that.”

The next question went to Giuliani and — amid great flattery — Giuliani noted that he also supported Bush’s surge “the night of the president’s speech.”

Mr. Straight Talk contradicted Giuliani, saying: “Not at the time.”

Again, Giuliani said: “The night of the president’s speech, I was on television. I supported the surge. I’ve supported it throughout.”

To which McCain finally said he didn’t mean that he was “the only one on this stage” who supported the surge. So by “the only one on this stage,” McCain really meant, “one of several people on this stage.” OK, great. Now tell us your definition of the word “is,” Senator.

I know Republicans have been trained not to go prostrate at Ivy League degrees, but do we have to admire stupidity?

Mr. Straight Talk also announced at that same debate: “One of the reasons why I won in New Hampshire is because I went there and told them the truth.” That and the fact that Democrats were allowed to vote in the Republican primary.

Even in the Florida primary, allegedly limited to Republicans, McCain lost among Republicans. (Seventeen percent of the Republican primary voters in Florida called themselves “Independents.”)

That helps, but why would any Republican vote for McCain?

At least under President Hillary, Republicans in Congress would know that they’re supposed to fight back. When President McCain proposes the same ideas — tax hikes, liberal judges and Social Security for illegals — Republicans in Congress will support “our” president — just as they supported, if only briefly, Bush’s great ideas on amnesty and Harriet Miers.

You need little flags like that for Republicans since, as we know from the recent unpleasantness in Florida, Republicans are unalterably stupid.

Republicans who vote for McCain are trying to be cute, like the Democrats were four years ago by voting for the “pragmatic” candidate, Vietnam vet John Kerry. This will turn out to be precisely as clever a gambit as nominating Kerry was, the brilliance of which was revealed on Election Day 2004.

  4. Ann Coulter is the devil. remember when jon reimer said that we shouldnt print anything that nancy pelosi said because she is a joke? she is the speaker of the house. Ann Coulter is a joke.

  5. I will agree that Ann Coulter is a joke, but so is Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi does not look right sitting next to Cheney and behind Bush at the State of the Union. She is like a figurehead for the Democratic party. Ann Coulter, on the other hand, while wise and unwavering on conservative issues, is also crazy. She damages the conservative cause, and here is just another example of her unstopping criticism of everything she finds a reason to criticize. No true conservative should favor Hillary over McCain.

  6. At least she stands for something. Unlike Republicans, who have party affiliation, she is a conservative, with principles. She does not look at the issues and then decide where she falls on party lines – she looks at all issues through a conservative lens.

    I think this is far more respectable, than someone who simply decides what is “right” because of how they “feel.” She has decided the conservative viewpoint is the correct one, and will continue to criticize based on that point.

  7. What you have just described is what I believe is most dangerous American party politics. Yes, Ann Coulter has decided that the conservative viewpoint is the correct one, but make no mistake; she came to this conclusion based on how she feels: formed by her life experiences and what she thinks would be best for America. The conservative viewpoint (or liberal viewpoint) can never be 100% correct, and thus, feelings and observations about what will be best for America will sometimes stray from the party platform. Typically, the Republican party is conservative, but obviously not all Republicans can be 100% conservative, such as McCain. He believes in what he thinks is best for America, as does Coulter.
    But let us hope that after years of being a conservative, Ann Coulter’s mind has not been so brainwashed and clouded that she throws out all other viewpoints without a legitimate reason other than the fact that it may not be completely conservative.

  8. What you have described, Matt, is what I fear is most dangerous in the minds of all people – a rejection of philosophy, of truth. You say that the conservative viewpoint can never be 100% correct – why is this? Conservatism is a principle, is a philosophy of government. The work of philosophy is to understand TRUTHS, i.e., things that are always true. In adopting a conservative standpoint, you subscribe to a philosophy of thinking that, if you are willing to subscribe to it, you should hope applies to all cases all of the time.

    Your devil-may-care, caution to the wind, openness to anything being true is what is undermining not only politics, but also religion, morality, and the state of man in today’s world.

  9. wow, i didn’t know i would get quoted on here.

    nice work guys, the blog/website has always been a dream that we never got off the ground.

    im not about to defend coulter, but no rational statesman would support pelosi’s ignorant foreign policy antics.

  10. McCain has been the biggest fraud in the Senate and now in the Military.

    McCain doesn care about our TROOPS and OUR ELDERLY… WT__F!!

    Look at this link and you will see Obama cared and cares more about Vets than McCain has in his 20+ years in the Senate..

    McCain is TOAST!

  11. WOW!!!! I just can’t wait to vote for Obama. I just love paying $12.00 per gallon gasoline, having my taxes raised. Having less money in my paycheck each week. WOW! Obama is so smart, all these tax increases will put everyone back to work. Oh, what did I say, if you go back to work you can’t get all the goverment hand outs. Good, I will quit my job stay at home and pick up my Soc. Sec. check each month while driving my BMW.
    What a gimmick. Thanks to the Big B O. our Savior…………………………….

  12. DEMOCRATS NOT TO BLAME? NONSENSE

    Now .. .about Nancy Pelosi. She says the Democrats share absolutely none of the blame for the current financial goings-on. She’s wrong. In fact, she’s lying because she knows here statement to be untrue.

    1. Almost all of the financial problems we see today are based on bad mortgage lending. That would be lending money to people to buy homes who didn’t qualify for a loan.

    2. The Democrats, under Clinton, strengthened a government-created monster called the “Community Reinvestment Act.” This law was then used by “activists” and “community organizers” (like Obama?) to coerce lending institutions to make these bad loans … millions of them.

    3. Now we see what happens when political “wisdom” supplants good loan underwriting. When private financial institutions are virtually forced to make loans to people with a bad credit and job history .. this is what you get. Enjoy it.

    The Democrats have offered us a candidate who is very anti-private sector. Obama believes that America is great because of government and those who, like him, deride the profit motive. If Americans are stupid enough to believe his socialist drivel and put him in office .. .then we will get just what we so richly deserve. This week is just a preview.

  13. What up, RNC!

    (cheers)

    You white motherfuckers!

    (laughter)

    This conference so white, Helen Mirren tried to snort it!

    (laughter)

    Y’all the whitest white people in the history of white people. Even Barbara Bush sitting here right now going: ‘These are some white motherfuckers.’

    (laughter)

    You’re so white, your vice presidential nominee got the word ‘pale’ in her name!

    (laughter, applause)

    Look at this place. I can’t believe this shit! Y’all couldn’t find one single brother?

    (shouting)

    There is? Where?

    (shouting)

    Yo, what up, brother! Looks like you the only chocolate chip in the cookie.

    (laughter)

    You look like a fly in a glass of milk, yo. Swim! Swim for your life!

    (laughter)

    Alaska in the house!

    (Cheers)

    Where the baby daddy at? Where he at?

    (crowd noise)

    You knocked her up, man? That’s cool. That’s cool.

    (silence)

    You know that word ‘abstinence’—you know that mean ‘no fucking,’ right?

    (laughter)

    I guess they didn’t make that clear at the seminar.

    (laughter)

    ‘So I just use this abstinence, that mean we can fuck all we want, right?’ No!

    (laughter)

    But you know I feel you, man. I do. Because the fact is, you live in motherfucking Alaska! What else is there to do but fuck?

    (laughter)

    Just fuck! That’s all there is to do! Just fuck!

    (laughter)

    That’s all Alaska is. Just a bunch of crazy white people fucking!

    (sustained laughter and applause)

    And you know he got to marry that girl, too. Because … her momma done shot a moose.

    (laughter)

    She shot a motherfucking moose! Put its head up on the wall and everything. That’s cold, man. That’s like Al Qaeda shit. Post that shit on the Internet as a warning to other moose.

    (laughter)

    ’Cause when a girl’s momma shoot a moose, that’s, like, a red flag for me. I take that shit into consideration. I do! It’s like, ‘Yeah, you fine. No doubt. You real fine. And you got a great personality. And you drunk. But … ain’t your momma the one done shot a moose? I’ll be seeing you later on.’ I practice abstinence with moose-shooting-momma-having bitches.

    (laughter)

    But it’s time to bring out the white man you’ve all been waiting for. This man is so white, he makes y’all look Mexican.

    (laughter)

    He spent five long years locked up in a POW camp, and returned a national hero.

    (applause)

    And fucked every white woman in America.

    (sustained applause)

    ’Cause five years—that makes you horny. And women, they looove to fuck war heroes. Basically, if you were white and female in 1973, you were fucked by John McCain.

    (“USA! USA! USA!”)

    And then he married a fine rich white girl whose daddy owned a beer company.

    (laughter, applause)

    And he wants to be president? Sheeet, you already got money, beer and pussy! What the fuck you want with the presidency? Quit while you’re ahead! You’re 72 years old—just drink, fuck, and play golf, you dumb white motherfucker!

    (raucous laughter, applause)

    Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States of America, John McCain!
