Welcome to the new world order

If you haven't yet read this article in Rolling Stone about John McCain, you may be shocked at what you don't know. I was:

In 1998, he formed a political alliance with William Kristol, editor of the neoconservative Weekly Standard, who became one of his closest advisers. Randy Scheunemann — a hard-right lobbyist who was promoting Iraqi exile Ahmad Chalabi — came aboard as McCain's top foreign-policy adviser. Before long, the senator who once cautioned against "trading American blood for Iraqi blood" had been reborn as a fire-breathing neoconservative who believes in using American military might to spread American ideals — a belief he describes as a "sacred duty to suffer hardship and risk danger to protect the values of our civilization and impart them to humanity." By 1999, McCain was championing what he called "rogue state rollback." First on the hit list: Iraq.

Privately, McCain brags that he was the "original neocon." And after 9/11, he took the lead in agitating for war with Iraq, outpacing even Dick Cheney in the dissemination of bogus intelligence about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein.

Yeah, no shit. You really should read it. Then ask the next douchenozzle who says they can't decide who to vote for if they want to spend the next 20 years paying for the wars that this cabal of greedy motherfuckers wants us to start.

I read the article 2 days ago and it is truely a powerful discription of someone we can not allow to be president.

Oh no, the "Maverick" was endorsed by the NRA. That'll bring a big turnaround in the last days of the campaign.

I'm not sure if he got the AARP endorsement, though.

Bastard.

I don't know, Johnny Yen, four years ago that may have been true. This year, all bets seem to be off. My Dad and lots of his buddies belong to the NRA, and they will absolutely NOT vote for McCain. I've even seen "I'm NRA and I'm voting for Obama" stickers around town.

Did you read the article in this month's Esquire? SV read it aloud to me. I know you subscribe so I'm sure you've seen it.

in less than one week, mccain has gone from asshole to complete and total douchebag asshole -- it is amazing how far he has fallen - and how fast

and he is using the exact same tactics on obama that were used on him'

he is pitiful == they should stop calling him any kind of hero -

Amen to that!

But not only is he a douchenozzle whore, he's a petrified-mummified douchenozzle whore - my gawd, he's OLD .. he was born when FDR was president.
