I Couldn't Resist

I stole this from the comments thread of a DKos post. I don't know who SC is (or even if that is the author), but kudos, SC, wherever you are.

There once was a man named mccain, who had the whole white house to gain, but he was quite a hobbyist of boning his lobbyist, so much for his 08 campaign. SC

A POW Against McCain

Read it.

I furthermore believe that having been a POW is no special qualification for being President of the United States. The two jobs are not the same, and POW experience is not, in my opinion, something I would look for in a presidential candidate.

Hopefully he, unlike a four-star general, is *allowed* to say that.

More Classical Music Muppet Goodness

Although I prefer "Pres de remparts de Seville".

My Favorite Rendition of "Ode to Joy"

Fuckin' hilarious. There are so many details in this, I just love it. Notice when the top middle Beaker makes the glass break and the two Beakers next to him react to it. I love that kind of detail in movies/TV; the type of thing you normally only notice if you watch the thing many times over*. If I were ever a filmmaker, I'd totally use that with abandon.

*Although I noticed it the first time 'round.

The Wages of Mendacity

It would seem that John McCain is a bald-faced liar. I'm shocked, let me tell you. Anyway, I've already contributed my definitive comment on the matter at another blog. Don't ask me where; I can't be expected to remember these things. So, the comment:

Liberals are too damn ethical. Republicans smeared Kerry, who never lied about his service. McCain is lying through his teeth about his POW experience; is effectively claiming his POW status as his primary, if not only, qualification for president; and is pulling the POW card whenever anyone criticizes him for anything. Note his campaign's statements on whether he cheated at the Rick Warren interview. POWs can't lie and cheat? This cross story, and the Keating 5, and McCain's treatment of his first wife prove otherwise.

This story is absolutely fair game. McCain is sullying the most important event in his life and his only true demonstration of courage and resilience, and he's proving his Christian faith to be nothing but a pack of lies.
