Is there anything John McCain won’t lie about?

What a whore.

this is the same guy that says he would rather lose an election than lose a war (a completely retarded concept on its face). so, no, there is absolutely nothing he would lie about.

Anything he won't lie about? Apparently not. Jeebus, what I wouldn't give to see someone in the mainstream media grow a pair and start asking these kinds of questions. But that's just my wishful thinking, I guess.

I was watchin McLame on CCN a couple of days ago. He was talking about the 3 worst and most important things in his life and he told this lie of Mother T and adopting. I could see in his eyes he was lying. His eye's shifted a bit then he tried to work up a tear. I about puked thinking how many idiots are gonna suck up his sappy shit. He very quickly and barely mentioned "the failed realtionship with his 1st wife" then moved on fast to elaborate on his POW stories.

Yes, there is ONE thing John McCain will absolutely NOT LIE about - he just LOVES Frito-Lay Sabritones (tm) Wheat Snacks!

Five and a half years, Dan Savage!

You get tied up and poked by Vietnamese homosexuals for five and half years and try to come out of it as anything other than a philandering, lying sack of shit.

It can't be done!

McCain probably does not know how to measure his cock either. Liars are everywhere!

I have been thinking about something that I think would stick to McCain and still fit into Obama's idealogical campaigning. It is all about the saying "If you are a hammer, all your problems look like nails" This would seem to get some traction I would think. Consider the possibilities:

Someone brings up McCain being a War hero, yep, he is a soldier. But that doesn't mean his ham-handed approach will fix the economy. McCain on foreign policy, yep he can start wars, but he certainly isn't delicate enough to end them. McCain on sticky issues like abortion his response "rights start at conception" definately not a thought-out approach to a policy so far reaching. McCain had a lot of one liners in the saddleback forum basically the action of a hammer . . .WHACK . . . that is solved . . . WHACK. . . that is solved. McCain is not what is required in a leader, not versatile enough to be able to respond to varied issues that come up to any administration. We need an engineer, an architect, a carpenter, a plumber, and every tool known to man.

This one size fits all approach that McCain has seems to be his forte and his foible. He has one answer to all questions "smash it"

Plus it gives us the opportunity to call him a tool. :)

What do you think ?

If you need three paragraphs and 250 words to explain the concept, it ain't gonna work.

Shorter McCain:

"You, little negro kid - get off my South Lawn!"

Is there anything from Andrew Sullivan you won't repost?

Posted by Non | August 21, 2008 10:22 AM

He's a Republican.

It's all they do.

The fact that they named their Bangladeshi daughter "Bridget" really bugs me.

@12 I'll take that one: no.

Posted by whatevernevermind | August 21, 2008 11:00 AM

it gets better. mccain went on record today saying he doesn't know how many houses he owns:

Remember kids: Barack Obama is an elitist.

the sheer level of disconnect between mccain and reality is as mind-boggling as it is terrifying.
