No human being in their right mind would want no brain McCain for president. Dear God, he's walking WW3. If elected, in a few months he will have started 2 or 3 wars in the Middle East and THEN here comes China and Russia declaring war on us. Only a clone of Nancy Pelosi would think China and Russia would just sit on their hands while the American neocons and their extremist Israeli right wing compatriots steal what's left of the entire Middle East (hint: oil, oil, and more oil).
But the killer is look at the alternative.
Obama isn't just 2 faced; he's 3, 4, or 5 faced. What happened with Obama is EXACTLY the same thing that happened with the 2004 dem congress.
PROGRESSIVES got the congress back in 2004, but then we discovered we had elected closet Republicans. This was the LEAST Democratic (if that word still means anything) congress in the history of our country. (Betrayal incarnate) = (the 2004 dem congress). Why? Who knows? Probably a combination of cowardice and greed. Certainly the Washington hog trough had AT LEAST as many Democrats as Republicans, plus we elected what turned out to be a veritable toilet of Democratic cowards. Indeed, the 2004 dem congress gave a new meaning to moral, existential cowardice. Cowards and greed pigs. That's our wonderful dem/pug congress (are you listening Nancy and Harry?)
So play it again, Sam. Obama's success in the primaries was chiefly due to PROGRESSIVES. His speeches were nearly all grounded in progressive values and policies and that turned out to be WHAT THE MAJORITY OF VOTERS WANTED.
But on the very first day Biden was VP, he was already taking shots at liberals and complementing the elites and Republicans. Also, Biden is probably even MORE nuts than McCain when it comes to Iraq. He wants to partition that country into three separate parts. Whenever this kind of arrogant lunacy is heard by the Iraqis, they get very, very unified and furious. In short, it's hard to imagine a better way to flip a match into all that political/nationalistic gasoline.
And while we're at it, didn't something like that already happen a few decades ago in the Middle East, but this time it was English arrogance, not American arrogance, that presumed to play the God-like game: Let's Invent a New Country! -- a game peculiarly favored by the Caucasian West.
Ok, let's get down and dirty and talk about where we are.
