From McCarthy to McCain, by BrianInNYC

In American politics there is a line that should never be crossed, and that line is we don’t accuse members of the other party of being communists. Repeatedly over the past few weeks McCain ~ Palin and their surrogates (including those in the press) have attempted to press this charge. Week after week we have seen John The Senator attempt to label Senator Obama as anything but a loyal American who wants only the best for his country.

We have watched him go from the silly of calling Senator Obama a celebrity to a terrorist, and now we are witnessing the lowest of charges one can hurl at an American politician, McCain and his surrogates are calling Mr. Obama a communists, since it would be too impolitic to say “don’t vote for the nigger” they have settled on the charge of communists. It’s a disgrace, and anyone who really holds the values espoused in our constitution will rise up and tell John The Senator (and his surrogates including members of the fourth estate, even the second rate ones) , enough is enough.

  1. Damn good mashed spuds, I needed some comfort food! When all else fails, carbs!

    I will second that, Brian. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Great post. Hopefully, the outcome of this election will send a message to the republicans that their politics of fear and divisiveness no longer work.

  3. nannymm

    That’s mean!! You trying to torment me?? 😥

  4. loads of butter and sauteed onions mashed into them too!

  5. nannymm

    “slapping Brian while simultaneously screaming”

  6. I feel much better now, LOL

  7. nannymm

    Me, too. LMAO

    If I may continue the thread from the last,, those who prefer the simple life should read “Your Money or Your Life”

    It really makes you reassess what’s important and what makes you happy in life.

  9. cheap pot and easy sex does it for me dnd.

  10. haha, watching This Week, and Lindsey Graham essentially said Colin Powell isn’t a real Republican.

  11. I think the whole republican party is imploding before our eyes…..way to go Bushie!!!!

    Next week he [Graham] will say Powell isn’t a real American.

  12. McCain is a coward. He doesn’t have the balls to tell Obama to his face that he’s a communist or anti-American.

    In fact McCain betrayed the troops when he didn’t speak out against Der Fuhrer Adolph Bush when he put a signing statement to the anti-torture bill saying he wasn’t going to follow the law as written or when McCain voted against the bill to stop members of civilian agencies from interrogating captives in our custody and using torture on them.

    Now I wonder if he also betrayed his brothers in uniform when he was a captive in Vietnam.

    What a low life piece of shit McCain is. I hope he loses his home state and also that a Democrat takes his seat in the Senate.

    God Bless.

    is there enough time in 4 years for President Obama to undue all those signing statements “W” put in place?

  14. He’s promised to review them, lets hope!

  15. I’m watching John Hannity’s America (shudder at the very thought). The premise of tonight’s show is 10 reasons not to vote for Obama, it’s very funny.

  16. nannymm

    I’m watching too (sort of). Haven’t we heard all this crazy BS before? Just goes to show you how desperate the repugs are. It’s comical watching them. What’s next? Are they going to get down on their hands and knees and beg, “Please, Please, pretty please! Don’t vote for Obama. Make that pretty please with sugar on top!” Give me a break! They make me want to barf!

  17. I love the one about “media darling”. But hey I thought they were all powerful Fox News, guess they are admitting their influence has waned a bit, tisk – tisk.

  18. horsedooty

    hey Brian his name is Sean not John Hannity

  19. chefsheila

    Strong Statements Brian, but it about time.

  20. Could McCain Lose His Home State?

    RCP average for AZ McCain + 11.3

    RCP average for Il Obama + 23.5

    Good morning!

    Good morning all. 8 Days to Go!

    Tony Hillerman has died, age 83. Wrote those great murder mysteries built around Navajo life and culture. RIP. If you have not read one, please do — they’re a treat and entertain (and inform) even if you don’t usually read mysteries.

    Polls are looking good for Obama in the swing states this morning. These next 8 days are going to be nerve wracking. though. I just want this election over!
    I haven’t read any of Hillerman’s novels, dog’s eye. But I enjoy good murder mysteries so I’ll check him out. Are there any in particular that you recommend?

  27. nannymm

    MSNBC has moved Colorado and Virginia into Obama’s column. They now have him winning the electoral college with 286! They know it’s OVER for McCain.

  28. horsedooty

    dog got my thunder but I will repeat EIGHT DAYS to go. Vote early if ya can and if not don’t for get NOV 4th.

  29. horsedooty

    Nanna,

    Dog is correct about the Hillerman novels. Pretty simple writing style. I read all them about 15 years ago.

  30. nannymm

    No early voting here in NY, Doots. So, Novenber 4th is it for me.

  31. dog's eye view

    Not over until it’s over.

    Virginia’s expecting hours long waits at some voting precincts; I worry about that for voters who just cannot wait it out for some reason.

    —–

    Nanny: I recommend starting with “Thief of Time” re the Navajo police searching for a missing anthropologist. Happens to be the first one I read (and, per NYT, Hillerman’s favorite novel).

    And then go back and start reading them in sequence. (Hillerman also did some good short stories and edited some anthologies.)

    Also: maybe it’s Coyote Waits or Talking God, but one of them has a murderer treated rather sympathetetically – he is so isolated and lonely that he phones strangers out of the classified ads to discuss the product being offered, to get some human contact. Always wince at the depiction of his loneliness.

    Today he would have the internet …

    Hey, Brian.
    Thanks for the recommendations, Dog’s Eye.

    Friday 4,000 turned out for McCain in Denver. Sunday over 100,000 turned out for Obama. 45,000 turned out in Ft. Collins.

    My guess that someone who takes the trouble to show up a couple hours early, go through security and stand a football field away from the podium to listen to a half hour speech will probably take make the effort to vote. Colorado’s going blue this year.

    LA Times on history of Allensworth, CA, a town founded by a freed slave; intended to be a utopia it failed, but an interesting story.

  35. dog's eye view

    Astonishing to hear that 100,000 showed up in Denver.

  36. dog's eye view

    Hillerman obit from International Herald Tribune; same one published in NYTimes.

  37. Former Sen. Larry Pressler (R-S.D.), who was the first Vietnam veteran to serve in the United States Senate, is the latest Republican to back Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, Politico learned Sunday.

    Pressler, who said that in addition to casting an absentee ballot for Obama he’d donated $500 to the Illinois senator’s campaign, cited the Democrat’s response to the financial crisis as the primary reason for his decision.

  38. Good morning everyone, supposed to light snow tomorrow, if the weather is bad, on election day, it makes a fairly large impact on who votes.

    A local news report said that 2000 voted yesterday. The BOE polls are open every Sunday 1-5, also said those people were voting Obama.

  39. Have a great day, off to recycle cardboard, I have to haul it to the city dump, ( lot’s of fun—- if the city would pick it up curb-side more people would actually recycle.) In California and Texas recycling was just normal practice, everyone did it. Here, not so much…..

    It’s pretty backwards here…..and now we just lost another big employer, National City Bank…..who could have used bail-out funds, but the government decided to give the funds to a strong bank in Pittsburgh and they in- turn bought Nat City….so Cleveland loses 4000 jobs *poof* gone.

    bail out is bull sh*t.
