Sen. McCain? Viagra ad agency on line two...

How 'bout the last debate?

Like Bob Dole, whom McCain increasingly seems to be morphing into, it's clearly time that McCain ought to be lining up a deal pitching Viagra on TV for some post election cash.

A few (quick) observations and comments...

- Thanks to McCain's goofy pander, Joe the Plumber is probably better known than John the Baptist. (It is now emerging that the actual Joe the Plumber isn't even a licensed plumber, but an apprentice. John McCain also mangled his name during the debate.)

- Right when Obama's halting, flat droning had gotten to the near-comatose stage near the end, and when he's supposedly trying to "connect" with Joe Sixpack or Joe the Plumber, or whoever, he actually used the word, "primacy" in noting the historical link between nations economic health and military power.

- John McCain is toast.

- It's a miracle McCain has lasted as long as he has without suffering a major stroke or heart attack in view of his barely being able to control his obvious seething anger and frustration. To those who watched CNN which provided a split screen of the two candidates, McCain looked as though he was undergoing a spastic episode of weird twitches, frantic and ceaseless eye batting, grimaces, eye-rolling, arched eyebrows, clenched jaws, glares and creepy rigid grins, usually at completely inappropriate moments. (Not to mention long, loud sniffs and what sounds like denture whistles when he speaks.)

Worst and most disgusting moment- John McCain, in trying to dodge the issue of the hate and violent anger his campaign has whipped up by constantly painting Obama as some sort of radical terrorist threat to the very existence of America, instead suddenly tried to turn it around and blame Obama. McCain went into a long and incredibly sappy spiel where he mentioned WWII vets of every stripe, and everything but Mom, Apple Pie, and Baseball, before defending the people who show up at his rallies despite the fact that NO ONE HAD ATTACKED THEM in the slightest.

Unless he was stating his immense pride in the very freaks who shout "Terrorist!", "Kill him!", "Marxist!" and "Traitor!" repeatedly at their rallies. As usual with McCain, his utterances often seem incomprehensible upon the slightest examination. This was no different.

But when confronted with the ugliness and irresponsible message his campaign has spewed, McCain cowardly and dishonestly tried to once again fool the stupid by suggesting that the complaints and warnings were nothing but attacks on "good patriotic Americans".

In a word, pathetic. Right up there with the rest, like trying to earnestly insist that he was referring to the sainted American worker when he said the "fundamentals" of our economy are strong.

-Joe the Plumber meet John the Dumber.

McCain showed how low he's willing to sink when he stated that a group submitting false voter REGISTRATION forms was, get this, "destroying the fabric of democracy".

My God! Destroying democracy itself!!!?? That's really serious! Man the barricades!

The McCain campaign's bedrock core belief is that Americans are essentially the mental equivalent of first graders.

This ACORN issue is so utterly phony that it insults every American. ACORN, a community organizing outfit who is paid to register voters, does so by hiring people, many who are the unemployed, or homeless. They try to help out those who need a little income by hiring them to go out and register new voters.

Of course, to ensure they're doing the job, they establish a minimum number of new registrations that a person has to get before they can get paid. There's no other way to ensure that ACORN won't be paying people for doing nothing.

They hire THOUSANDS of people to do this work. Some who don't want to do the work instead resort to filling out made up names on the applications in order to get paid.

Is this really a big shock? No.

ACORN by law has to submit the phony apps, even when they themselves find most of them and point them out to government officials when they turn them in.

In short, it's a big NOTHING. The phony apps are tossed, and life goes on.

This does not, and CAN NOT have anything to do with actual vote fraud.

If some goof turns in a registration form in the name of Mickey Mouse or Paris Hilton, there is no way Mickey or Paris are going to then show up and try to vote, and neither are any of the other phony names on these bogus forms.

Obama has represented ACORN along with the Justice Dept. in a lawsuit forcing the state of Illinois to comply with motor voter laws. They've had no involvement with the Obama presidential campaign whatsoever, as the campaign itself has it's own massive and effective voter registration operation.

McCain knows this, as any reasonably intelligent Schnauzer would, yet there he sits, seemingly in the advanced stages of rigor mortis except for the strained facial expressions, solemnly suggesting with a straight face that this routine and utterly unsurprising and inconsequential fact means that Obama himself is involved in voter fraud most foul, MOST FOUL I TELL'S YA!!!

McCain trusts that you, my friend, are an utter fool.

- McCain mocks the idea of the "health" of the mother in allowing emergency abortions.

- McCain rails against "Class warfare" and "spreading the wealth around" in the face of the middle class collapsing while millionaires and billionaires who've had the rules rigged allowing them to rake in obscene profits while paying no taxes and having literally no government oversight which would have prevented the worst looting of the economy during the past 8 years. Good luck with that, Mac.

McCain thumbs his nose at anyone who isn't wealthy enough to start their own business and make more than a quarter million a year in personal income, and yells about allowing billionaires to keep every dime they've stolen or accumulated due to policies skewed entirely in their direction. He's such a rigid ideologue that he'd rather the middle class become extinct and literally be thrown out of their homes than to ask that those who have seen their incomes double, triple, or quadruple over the past 8 years to actually pitch in a little towards the good of the country.

What a patriot.

The bottom line is that McCain is obviously EXACTLY the kind of Republican ideologue who hews to failed and dumb ideas and theories even as he stands right in the middle of the wreckage they've created. McCain last night was angrily arguing exactly for more of the same, even as he tried, and failed, to argue he, rather than Obama, represented real change. But the word just doesn't fit well in his mouth.

Most people see this clearly, even if they don't consciously realize it.

And unless you're Joe the Plumber and more concerned with making a few extra thousand dollars over saving the country from the disastrous course it's on, it's plain which candidate represents "Change", and which is arguing for following the same failed ideological course that got us in this mess to begin with.

What did you think? Can you list all the demonstrable lies and distortions pedaled by the Lizard King?

Finally, as an aside, consider this fact: There has not been a winning Republican Presidential ticket since 1928 (Hoover) that did not include Richard Nixon or one of the Bush's.

Astounding. Maybe that's the problem?)
