I got your October Surprise RIGHT HERE, McNasty...

One of the most persistent racist memes is the notion that all Black men would rape White women if given the chance. This meme has turned deadly...with the deep South, most notably in the brutal murder of young Emmett Till in 1955. There were lynchings as late as 1981 in Alabama.

Now we have a Republican operative, apparently an up-and-comer in the GOP ranks, who calls in a false report about a black man mugging and then carving a backwards "b" in her face with a knife. Before the little ninny had an attack of conscience and 'fessed up, both McCain and Palin called her in the hospital, and as you can see from the video clip, it was a McCain operative who was pushing the story to the press and to Matt Drudge.

I hope the numbskull gets TIME for this. Because this could have been so much worse.

No Cunt for Old Men, take 2

There's that word again! Hoo boy...McCunt is in some trouble now. And check out Cindy's reaction to this apparent malapropism!

Of course, the original gaffe is still the best...especially when it's used in the name of t3h phunny...

And oh yeah, in other news...Al-Qaeda endorsed...MCCAIN.

If you're going to play the Ayers card, we're playing the Liddy card.

Who is G. Gordon Liddy?

That's a quick introduction to a man who became notorious for his involvement in Watergate, and who, as a "hot talk" talk show host has repeatedly incited his hard right audience to violence.

Here's a primer on Watergate for those who didn't live through it: these two segments are from a PBS documentary on the Watergate Affair: the break=in to Democratic Party headquarters, and the coverup that occurred afterward.

A burglary. On US soil. To provide "intel" for the benefit of the re-election campaign of a sitting POTUS. This was not the first time Liddy had done illegal acts on behalf of President Nixon: he had masterminded the bugging and surreptitious copying of papers at Daniel Ellsberg's therapist's office. Ellsberg was the journalist who found and exposed the Pentagon Papers, and Nixon wanted revenge. Liddy provided it.

Liddy did 5 years of a 20 year sentence for his part in masterminding the Watergate burglary. His sentence was inexplicably commuted by President Jimmy Carter. He attempted to start a private security company but failed. However, he has had a second life as a "famous for being famous" character who did bit parts in movies and TV, and then settled in to his current career in "hot talk" radio.

As a "hot talker" he played into the hatred of the ultra-Right for the Clintons and for the Clinton administration. Right after the Waco incident, Liddy told his audience:

If the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms insists upon a firefight, give them a firefight. Just remember, they're wearing flak jackets and you're better off shooting for the head.
-- G. Gordon Liddy, September 15th, 1994

Oooo-kay. So you want your listeners to assassinate government agents. And this is better than an ex-radical who wanted to blow up the Pentagon back in the 1960s? Who did his acts when Barack Obama was all of 8 years old? And who doesn't have a platform to spew his unrepentant hatred on "hot talk" radio? Liddy never apologized for his statements on that or any other day his radio show appeared.

Liddy supports McCain. He supported McCain way back in 1988, when he hosted a fund-raiser for McCain's ill-fated 2000 Presidential campaign at his mansion. He has donated to McCain's 2008 campaign. And when McCain went on Liddy's show last year, McCain said:

I'm proud of you, I'm proud of your family....It's always a pleasure for me to come on your program, Gordon, and congratulations on your continued success and adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great.
-- John McCain, November 2007

Burglary. Dirty Tricks. What Nixon colorfully referred to as "ratfucking." Assassination of government agents when those government agents report to a Democratic administration. This is the kind of associate McCain has called "my friend." This is the kind of associate McCain has had since the last decade, if not longer. Seriously, Ayers is small potatoes compared to G. Gordon Liddy. Principles and philosophies that keep our nation great? I don't think so.

John McCain <3s ACORN.

"What makes America special is what's in this room tonight." -- John McCain

I mean, there is nothing wrong with supporting hard-working community organizers. However, to turn around and diss them in your speeches...that takes a SPECIAL kind of douchebaggery.

"That one."

Notice this during tonight's debate?

John McCain's real feelings about minorities leaked out in that one brief moment. This will go down along with Ross Perot's "you people" comment in his address to the NAACP in 1992, and George Felix Allen's notorious "Macaca" remark that did his senatorial campaign in.

This might be the moment the wheels came off the Double Talk Express.

Update: the viral intertube video d00dz did it again! Enjoy this most excellent mashup. This will go down with Bill O'Reilly's dance mix flip-out as a political viral video classic.

More about the Keating Five.

This one is absolutely blistering. McCain is either cursed with the worst judgment of anyone to darken the doors of Congress or is actively a crook.

Johnny McCain's Cartoon Funtime!

After watching a human cartoon tonight debating Joe Biden, I thought a little cartoon funtime was in order. Woo woo! Here comes the Swiftboat!

Just for fun: No Cunt for old men.

OK, I've been dead serious here until now. As we wait for the SNL sketch...I mean the VP Debate...tonight, I've got a campaign funny for you. This has got to be the most hilarious viral video of campaign 2008. The Public Service Administration deserves to be seen more on the media.

However: this is NSFW. The bowdlerized version is just not as funny. The humor in this is all about that four-letter word that McCain called his wife.

Yeee-HAW!!! McCain's "green" policy would make Teddy Roosevelt GAG.

Conservation Conservative? No, he holds his middle finger up at conservation and energy independence. "Conserve this!" "Drill baby drill!"

Yee-HAW indeed.

Connecting the dots on John McCain's Social Security policy

Step right up! Keep your eye on the lady!

Cafferty is ON FIRE here.

Another thing to hang around McCain's neck

"I'm George W. Bush, and I approved this message."

Yes, he did an ad. For the re-election of George W. Bush. You can run, but you can't hide, McCain.

God bless Robert Greenwald...

The Brave New PAC is Going There. Well, not as far as I am, but far enough.

Do you smell what I smell? Blood in the water? Smells like victory.

The "Hero" Problem, Part 3: John McCain is no War Hero.

Now we get to the John McCain as "War Hero" problem. I have been holding back, because the Obama campaign doesn't want to go there. However, considering all the horrible places the McCain/Palin campaign have gone during the convention and beyond, the truth must come out. Now.

John Sidney McCain the Third made propaganda tapes for the North Vietnamese, in exchange for special treatment and care by visiting Cuban doctors.

There. It's said. This is the reason why a goodly portion of Vietnam vets call McCain "Songbird"...or way worse. This is why McCain stonewalled all attempts to find out whether there were live POWs in Vietnam during the late 1970s-early 1980s.

Try to put lipstick on that decaying hog carcass.

Untested and untried: the real McCain record on Defense.

More of the same ineptness in dealing with the rest of the world. And do you really think that "Beauty Queen" Sarah Palin will be able to handle things any better when McCain goes to his Eternal Reward?

Lettuce entertain you...

$50 an hour to pick lettuce? Where do I sign up?

This one below has a little more context but is just audio. And it's even more damning.

...and btw don't criticize a farm worker with your mouth full.

The "Hero" Problem, part 1

Noun. Verb. P.O.W.

Let's not get into what John McCain might have done while a P.O.W. in Hanoi. At least, not yet. Let's just agree on one little thing: surviving a Vietnamese P.O.W. camp does not mean you are qualified to be President. This is what General Wesley Clark, a man who has been more exemplary of the finest qualities of our Armed Forces by a long shot than John McCain, was trying to tell us.

How many houses does he have again?

John McCain has enough houses to entertain his friends. And yes, we're ALL his friends. He says so all the time...
