Okay, you know what? Gerson needs to quit this bullshit

So, I'm reading this WaPo piece from Michael Gerson, which amounts to a endorsement of McCain, and it's just friggin' grating on me.  He's getting antsy because JD Hayworth is closing the gap between himself and McCain in the Arizona primary.  Gerson knows McCain is in trouble, as does McCain's campaign team.  He knows the Tea Partiers poised to make a serious effort to drive out McCain. 

Gerson goes over the litany of reasons that JD Hayworth is a bad candidate...and you know what?  They're pretty much all correct.  Look, I'll say it, Hayworth is a corrupt ass, and you can't convince me that there aren't much better people for that Senate seat in Arizona.  It doesn't matter though. 

Gerson allows that McCain is an intemperate jackass,

There are reasons McCain is politically endangered. He is the Senate's most gifted practitioner of sudden, disproportionate anger. He often seems overly impressed by his own virtue. Many in Washington and Arizona would pay good money to see him humbled. His epic service is matched by epic flaws -- but an insufficient commitment to fiscal conservatism is not among them.


All I have to say to that last line is Cap & Trade.  Hey, Michael?



Gerson of course leaves out the even longer litany of reasons that McCain sucks, and the fact that McCain has been kicking conservatives in the balls every chance he's had over his entire political career.  Well, Michael, we now have the chance to give him a swift kick to the nads in return for all the years of abuse he gave us, and it looks like we might take it.  This election isn't so much about who is better, they both suck, this is about sending a warning to the GOP leadership, that they aren't invincible, and they aren't going to hitch a free ride on the wave of opposition to the Marxist left. They'll also learn that if they don't learn to respect us, they'll learn to fear us, because we'll drive them out of power, and there's nothing the GOP leadership fears more than to be driven out of their cushy leadership positions.

Then, there's this,

A primary loss might be good for McCain's soul. But it would be bad for his party and for the country.


How so Michael?  Is it the refusal to allow increased gas and oil exploration, Cap & Trade, Amnesty, McCain-Feingold, closing Gitmo, or undermining the Bush tax cuts that was so good for the party and country?  Which one was it?

At his best, McCain is precisely what a senator should be -- independent, passionate, unawed by power, unmoved by influence.


And at his worst, he's an attention whoring, arrogant, ignorant jackass with poor command of the facts on very basic issues, especially economics and the Constitution, and has no coherent political philosophy guiding him.  Your point?

Of course, I think Gerson knows all this.  In fact, I know he knows this.  Before his gig at WaPo, he was a speechwriter for Bush.  He's also an amnesty advocate, as you can see in this early WaPo piece, where he demagogues opponents of Bush's amnesty plan.  That's what is driving this for Gerson, Hayworth, if nothing else, has been a solid opponent against the efforts by both the Democrat and GOP leadership to impose amnesty on this nation.

This fucking pissed me off,

In contrast, Hayworth symbolizes the worst excesses of the Tea Party movement, without having displayed any of its redeeming fiscal virtues while in office. His candidacy presents a test. If the movement embraces politicians such as Hayworth, it will not only prove itself extreme; it will prove itself gullible.


...so in other words, in Gerson's world, we have no choice, accept McCain and endless abuse he dishes out to conservatives, accept the horribly destructive bills he regularly leads the charge for, or our opinion means nothing.  What a bunch of fucking bullshit, I'd suggest Gerson should be ashamed of himself, but I don't think he's capable.  What a bastard.

GOProud tears into Tom Campbell

For terrorist coddling and hostility to Israel,

In his failed 2000 Senate bid, Campbell called for the creation of an independent Palestinian state with its capital in Jerusalem, argued that Israel received too much U.S. aid, and attacked former President Bill Clinton for being too pro-Israel.

While in Congress, Campbell was one of only a handful of Representatives to vote against both a resolution expressing support for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and against the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.

“Israel is one of the United States most important and loyal allies, and quite frankly Tom Campbell’s record and rhetoric look more like Pat Buchanan’s then Ronald Reagan’s,” said LaSalvia. “Israel is a beacon of freedom and tolerance in a sea of radically anti-gay regimes in the Middle East. You simply cannot claim to support equality of opportunity for gays and lesbians while at the same time seeking to undermine the only country in the Middle East that treats gay people with dignity and respect.”


This was a press release er, oriented towards the gay community, who Campbell is actively seeking support from.  I have zero patience for the Pat Buchanan/Jimmah Carter view on Israel, good work GOProud.

He's still America's Greatest Patriot

Not like you stupid neocons.  I've been in the trenches man, just today I set up eight proxies to hit this warmongering neocon tool's rating on his interview with the Man himself.  It's like that sometimes, the sewers you have to crawl into to make sure America's Greatest Patriot is not only heard, but then to spam the polls to make it look like cultist devo...er, lots and lots of grassroots support stands behind one Congressman Ron Paul. 

Look at how that neocon tries to trap The Good Congressman with that earmark question and the Civil War question.  Pathetic.  But the Doctor carves up those bits of idiocy like a...uh...um...a doctor with a scalpel, and the scalpel is the Constitution.  The answer was the Constitution stupid, it always was, it always is with Ron Paul.  And it's true, Lincoln and the money men up north could have bought all the slaves, it's true, Congressman Ron Paul said so.  That's why he's America's Greatest Patriot. 

Naturally the coward neocon interviewer avoided bringing up the American Empire, the Pentaverate, the Bilderbergers, the Whataburgers, the Illuminati, and of course he didn't bring up the sham that is our fiat currency system.  What an embarrassing display.  I respect the Good Congressman for his willingness to crawl into any sewer to spread the good word and beacon of light that is the Constitution on these people, but I couldn't stomach it.  Hitting polls however?  Yeah, that's easy, and it drives the neocons and globalists fucking crazy.

Look, I'll make it simple for you neocon trash, if you do not love one Congressman Ron Paul, you do not love the Constitution, and if you don't love the Constitution, you do not love America.  If you do not lust for the warm embrace of one Congressman Ron Paul, you do not love America, it's that simple.  And before you say anything, you neocon warmonger, there's nothing gay in that, just profound respect for the Constitution...and maybe ear nibbling...just a little.

No poll today, I spent eight fucking hours sitting in my bunker hitting polls in the past...eight hours, even I have my limits.
