The Truth Be Damned

John McCain’s pants are going up in smoke faster than Wall Street, and Lord Obama wants the nation to evacuate.

The Obama campaign just released its latest rebuttal to McCain’s “sleazy” tactics, a television ad questioning what happened to McCain’s heart of gold. Ah, the expediency of politics has extinguished Mac’s conscience, and now his team is lobbing bombs at Obama Nation like the Palestinians and Israelis. Duck for cover, folks, because our good fortunes hinge on who emerges from the rubble.

The forgotten man, Joe Biden, is unsheathing the swords in Michigan today…a few excerpts from his expected speech:

“When Senator McCain was subjected to unconscionable, scurrilous attacks in his 2000 campaign, I called him on the phone to ask what I could do. And now, some of the very same people and the tactics he once deplored his campaign now employs. The same campaign that once called for a town hall a week is now launching a low blow a day.”

Good old Joe is frothing at the mouth right now. With the politics Mac’s chosen to play, the Delaware senator is now free to let that loquacious tongue of his out of the cage. Slithering and sniping. Whisking and walloping. Well, that’s the point of the VP running mate anyway, right – to say the things the main man thinks but would never get caught saying in public. Perhaps he might get caught every now and again, but it’s never planned. Or is it? Who the hell can tell anymore.

  1. The stock market crashes: Taxpayers get the bill, yet you’ll soon realize the big-wig CEOs won’t lose a dime from their compensation, or from their golden parachute contracts. The wheeler-dealer stock brokers won’t lose a dollar from their fat bonuses, but the taxpayers will foot the bill.

    And the GOP promises us more of the same.
    And STILL, non-thinking voters will support the business as usual GOP ticket.
    Go figure!
