I'd prefer to think John McCain is just a lying sack of shit, instead of the scary possibility...
My friend, Dick points out that McCain looks less like the witty player of 2000 and more and more like Ronald Reagan ... in Reagan's SECOND TERM when the Alzheimer's had really taken hold.
So I'm hoping that he's really just the man he so obviously appears to be -- the vicious scum-sucking asshole who'll do anything --run a slander machine, lie, cheat, whisper, plant racist and communist and all kinds of -isty hints to get elected, because he knows he can only make points by attacking the other guy since he's got nothing else to offer.
Even his competition with Joey Lieberman the past four years to see which one can put the juicier, wetter, more slobbery tongue kiss on Monkey Boy's ass is just vile, but not as scary as the real real real probability -- that senile dementia has set in already and Sarah Palin will be acting president a week after the inauguration.
We can survive with a criminal as president - -we've been doing that off and on for 232 years, with special emphasis on the last 8 -- but to have demented old Uncle Fudd in the Oval Office with Ilsa, She-Wolf of Wasilla *** as his backup?
Even the atheists mutter "God help us" when conetmplating that possibility.
* His hench-creatures have whispered that we must consider Barack Obama as the Manchurian Candidate. Hey when you're IT, point the finger at someone else. In this case, remember the old saw that "When you point your finger at someone, there are THREE fingers pointing back at you."
** Certainly his Manchurian status (Cindy makes a credible Queen of Diamonds) is enhanced by the fact that EVERY presidential candidate from Clinton to Kerry has been accused of being that guy -- except John McCain. After all "John McCain is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known." He's in that ultimately suspicious category of "Couldn't be him." and "How DARE you? He's above suspicion -- he's a TRUE PATRIOT!!!"
*** Hey, I've seen Dyanne Thorne and vicious though Ms Palin seems to be, seemingly cruel and even sadistic, Governor Palin is NO Dyanne Thorne.
