Votepocalypse USA 2008: John McCain, Muppet Of Evil

November 20th, 2006 | researchmaterial

I’m sorry. The guy really does look like a Muppet to me. Anyway, two gems from thinkprogress just popped up on my radar, indicating that McCain, the cuddly Republican, has pulled a hard right. Which means he’s deadly serious about running in ’08, the poor doomed old bastard.

First of all, McCain’s flipflopped on Roe vs Wade (you mean he told a San Francisco newspaper he supported Roe vs Wade in 1999? Surely not. That means he’s a… politician! Shitheads) while on American TV:

I do believe that it’s very likely or possible that the Supreme Court should — could overturn Roe v. Wade, which would then return these decisions to the states, which I support.

Oh, but it gets better:

In 2000, John McCain called Jerry Falwell an “agent of intolerance.” Now, he has hired the debate coach from Falwell’s Liberty University, Brett O’Donnell, to advise him on his communications strategy. O’Donnell has been executing Falwell’s strategy to train scores of debaters to confront “the culture on moral default.”

Oh, and:

Today on ABC’s This Week, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) acknowledged that his plan to escalate the Iraq war by sending at least 20,000 more troops “would put a terrible strain on the Army and Marine Corps.” “Absolutely, it would be terrible,” he said, “we’re going to be asking people to go back again and again, maybe even extend their tours.”

The old boy’s plainly got brain bubbles. The question is, are they the kind of brain bubbles that the hard right and the evangelical right like, over there?
