Country First?

“That’s OK – as long as I can keep the clothes.”

Some bloggers are asking why we are talking about Palin’s attire. Simply, very simply it is because it shows the greatest of hype – hypocrisy.

The McCain campaign is one piece of hype – one piece of hypocrisy that is never ending. A woman who was brought into the lime-light by a hypocrite – by a man who, from day one, knew what he was doing. You can’t feel sorry for John McCain – why would you? He is the one that brought her from the high-country that is Alaska and made 300 million focus on her.

Some love her, many more dislike her, and some have utter contempt for her. But that isn’t really Sarah Palin’s fault – it is John McCain’s.

She was brought into this race for a few basic reasons. She was brought in to shore up the base of Conservatism, social Conservatives they call them – hyperbolic zealots I call them. She brought them on-board, because she is one of their own. She was brought in to dupe women into thinking that McCain was on the side of women – she took some of them and made them believe that she was, then those women looked deeper and saw that she wasn’t there for them, only her and John McCain. And they left.

She was brought in to try to make the working middle-class think of her as some sort of saviour – some sort of person who is one of them. That their voice would finally be heard. She has failed them. They saw through her because, and not just because of, those clothes. And the cost of those clothes.

$150,000 worth of clothes!

Palin denounced talks of her wardrobe as “ridiculous” and declared emphatically: “Those clothes, they are not my property.”

“Just like the lighting and the staging and everything else that the RNC purchased, I’m not taking them with me,” she said at a rally in Tampa, Florida.

Those bloggers who ask why we are talking about those clothes – ask her why SHE is talking about them?

A senior McCain adviser told CNN that those comments “were not the remarks we sent to her plane.” Palin did not discuss the wardrobe story at her rally in Kissimmee, Florida, later in the day.

McCain talks about un-scripted comments, this is true – everything is scripted, and when Palin falls off script she is attacked by the very people who brought her into this race. She is, in my opinion, a dope – a person that should have said ‘Thanks, but no thanks’ – but she claims that she did not blink, she accepted and now it has come to this.

How, I may ask, is a man who has done this to a woman be trusted in any way? He is allowing his camp to attack the person who he is running with. Yes, his running mate – and publicly, to boot!

Can you trust a man like that? Can you look at him and see a person who is going to be compassionate to your ills when he allows this?

This isn’t a matter of Country First – but John McCain First. He is hammering his running mate for not doing as he says. For having a free voice – how is that Straight Talk? How is that being a Maverick? Can you imagine what the book is going to say?

She will write how she was intimidated – whether that be now or in four years – it will be open for public scrutiny. If you vote for him does that make you complicit because voting for him will concur that what he is doing is right.

John McCain’s supporters will call for her head if they lose. Why? It was John McCain who is attacking her, she is just saying that they were wrong in certain things.

No, it isn’t about being a maverick or putting country first – John McCain wants control, and that should scare people as I have said before – and scare you enough to reject him. He is no maverick – he is a control freak!

Get Out to Vote! And vote for Barack Obama.

    The Republic machine is unravelling right before our eyes. There is much in-fighting going on between the McCain camp and the Palin advisors. We certainly don’t need that type of behavior in the White House right now, what with all the problems we already are experiencing.

    Meanwhile, there is no fighting in the Democratic camp. If they are fighting, we don’t know about it. I mean they really don’t have anything to fight about. They are apparently winning. This is good.

    The Democrats have also wooed the Hispanic and Asian vote because many Hispanic and Asian people are smart enough to know that if Obama gets in there for 4 or 8 years on year 9 there could well be an Hispanic American or Asian American gearing up to run for the top office. And could win. If McCain wins it may never happen!

    Sarah’s prayers were listened.
    God is now giving us a helping hand. The polls are looking good now.
    8 days and then I willsend that Negro to Guantanamo with Ayers.

  3. Will Rhodes says:

    John, do you still feel you will get over 100 in EC votes?

  4. John McCain says:

    There will be states like Florida where I will get 150% of the votes just like George W.

  5. Ghost of George Washington says:

    If McCain/Palin win the White House, what good will it be?

    If the nastiest, dirtiest, most erratic campaign mounted in the 21st Century
    (and even though it’s only a few years old, that is saying something),
    can triumph over the most obvious leader to emerge in decades,
    what hope does our nation have?

    What direction would a McCain/Palin administration take us?
    Do you think that they even know themselves?
    Have you noticed that the color scheme of the McCain campaign
    isn’t even red, white and blue? It’s blue, white and gold. Which USA is that?

    All I hear from the McCain/Palin camp is “Barack this,” and “Obama that.”

    What I hear from Obama is “We can do this,” and “we can fix that.”

    I say, let’s vote for hope, change and a continuation of Democracy.
    4 more years of Reaganomics will turn us
    into THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES

    OBAMA 2008

  6. John McCain says:

    You got it wrong, Hillywilly – it’s “Cuntry First”.
    Yiiiiiiiiiha!

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
