McCain-Palin: Ignorance is Strength

with 4 comments

Oh, wait a minute.

That was Orwell.

How insane is it that John McCain and Sarah Palin have any support at all? Let alone 40% of Americans that most pollsters speak to. According to this article, McCain hasn’t answered press questions or conducted a legitimate media conference in nearly 5 weeks, while his running stooge hasn’t answered any questions at all since she was nominated 4 weeks ago.

The best bit is about how the media have now refused to run photos or video of Palin meeting with handpicked world leaders from Afghanistan and Colombia unless they are allowed editorial access to her and McCain.

After the television networks strenuously objected to the McCain campaign’s effort to block any editorial presence from the room, the McCain campaign finally allowed one CNN pool camera and one pool producer into the meeting room.

As she arrived for her meeting with Karzai, Palin avoided reporters who were camped out at the main front entrance of the hotel, instead pulling up in a motorcade to a side entrance and quickly sneaking inside.

Palin’s dance with the press continued during her meeting with Karzai. After being told that an editorial presence would be permitted in Palin’s meetings, pool reporters were asked to leave after the first 30 seconds, according to the pool report.

Free speech, liberty, democracy, common sense – all things more readily found in the dictionary than in American politics.

Breaking news: McCain takes lead

with one comment

in shit-eating contest.

seriously… you want people who stage fast-food-tolerating down-and-folksy photo ops in charge of all the things that an American president can use to f@%k the world?

You’re a bunch of friggin’ Miss Carolinas.
