Audacity of Atrocity!

John McCain may be a war hero, he was a prisoner of war who was tortured by the Viet Cong, (you'd think he'd be solidly against torturing anyone), but when he starts pandering to the pro-torture crowd in the neanderthal Republican base, his shiny medals start to acquire a little tarnish. It's been an amazing little dance to see Mr. Straight Talk Express try to convince the base that yes, he certainly can kiss George Bush's totalitarian ass, and at the same time try to prove to the Independents (who are they?) that he's not just another well-heeled ass-kisser, who basically has no principles, at least not any that would lose him votes with the base. One suspects that the Republican party's rhetoric in the months leading to November will not reflect well on a this fractured land. Our audacity of hope is gonna have to withstand an avalanche of atrocity!

  1. An assful of arrogance? What was that Gang of Four album titled, "Give Them enough Rope"?

    It looks like it's going to be an interesting year indeed. :)

    There's that line, "it's always darkest before the dawn." Not sure, maybe it's just gonna get real, real dark, and then it's gonna get a little darker. So that probably means that us shiny ones are just gonna stand out that much more brightly! I say, damn the torpedoes and Shine on you Crazy Diamonds!
