this time this space – Palin Makes Me Puke

with 2 comments

Here are some facts about John McCain’s choice for Vice President, Sarah Palin:

(1) She is presently under investigation in Alaska for abuse of power

Sarah Palin is being investigated for abuse of power (7/08) after she fired the Dept. of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. Palin pressured Monegan to fire her sister’s ex husband who is a state trooper. When Commissioner Monegan refused, Palin fired him.

(2) She strongly supports big oil

Palin is aligned with the oil industry on two key issues. She favors drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and many offshore areas. Palin represents one of the few real petro-states within the United States. Big Oil is big business in Alaska, and the state relies on oil and gas tax and royalty revenues for more than 80 percent of its budget. The state’s coffers runneth over; every resident of Alaska gets a check from the state, a dividend for his or her share of the oil and gas extracted from the ground. Oh, and Palin’s husband works as a field operator for BP, one of the main operators on the North Slope. Oil interests are largely Alaska’s interests.

John McCain says “Get In the Kitchen and Make Me a Sammich”

with one comment

I’ve been hearing a lot of McCain people complaining that the liberal media isn’t giving John McCain as much coverage as Barack Obama, so I figured I’d give ole John the attention he deserves.  We’ll start with this funny little video.  A word of warning: the following video is creepy, not like weird guy checking out a girl creepy, but more like clown showing kids his “flesh-colored balloon animals” in the back of his van creepy. HEERRRREE’SSS JOHNNY!

Funny? Yes. Creepy? Fuck yes. Strangely ironic because John McCain has ZERO respect for women? You bet your sweet ass.

John McCain was recently asked if insurance companies that cover erectile dysfunction medications should also cover birth control for women, an issue which he has voted against in the past. Mr. McCain was baffled. He had no answer.

I’m not really sure why he would be against this. He is Pro-life, birth control means fewer unwanted pregnancies which means fewer abortions. This sounds like a winning proposition for those zygote loving pro-lifers, of course it’s against everything pro-lifers support, which is the control of women by men. (On a side note: something that has always bothered me, do pro-choice vegetarians eat eggs?) Think this is McCain’s first foray into anti-women stances on issues and in his personal life? False.

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day.

Wow…  Apparently Mr. McCain is a little touchy about his receding hairline.  Don’t worry John, most guys your age have much less hair, or they’re dead, most guys your age are dead.  I must commend him on his use of the word “trollop” which is a much underused term for a whore, it’s lost a lot of distance to trick and ho and trick-ass ho over the last few years with the hip-hop explosion. (No Mr. McCain you can’t kill Iranians with a hip-hop explosion don’t get excited.)

Anti-women’s rights, calling his wife a cunt, clearly this man doesn’t respect women.  Unfortunately that’s not the worst of it:

In 1979, John McCain came face to face with his future.  He was in Hawaii, attending a military reception. While there, he met a young, blond, former cheerleader named Cindy Hensley.  It was an incredible stroke of luck for McCain.  How fortunate could one man be? Here was McCain, who had his eye on Congress, meeting a young, attractive beer heiress from Arizona, which was adding a congressional district in 1982…  After a whirlwind courtship, John asked Cindy to marry him. But there were some details to clear out of the way.  McCain needed a divorce from his wife of 14 years, Carol, who had been badly injured in a car accident while McCain languished in Hanoi.  The marriage had been strained by his years of absence, along with McCain’s admitted affairs after returning from Vietnam.

An affair with a 24 year old?  And this guy voted to impeach Clinton for the exact same thing?  Coincidentally Mr. McCain’s favorite game is “Hungry Hungry Hippo-crites”.  I know what you’re thinking, the only thing more disrespectful to women would be if John McCain were a polygamist…

[W]hen McCain obtained a marriage license to marry Cindy, on March 6, 1980, he was still married to Carol — and would be for nearly a month longer.

Maybe he should pick Mitt Romney as his running mate. Mr. McCain, you are a twisted little man.
