McCain/Palin eh?

August 30, 2008

I do believe that the old geezer just stole a significant group of people who the Obamessiah was counting on to vote for him. Sure, he pretty much alienated them when he beat Hillary, sure he discounted their existance when he decided to not make her his Veep candidate, but now McCain comes along and sweeps up a lot of those voters who were still going to choose the Obamessiah.

It’s shocking I know, the Republican Party made a correct decision for once. I’m shocked beyond belief. Maybe McCain can win after all.

When I was a kid

August 22, 2008

I grew up during that wonderful time called the 80s. I don’t really remember much of it because, well… it was on average of 20 years ago and more, but I do remember some of it. I remember playing with toy guns, I remember playing with GI-Joes, and I remember that the Russians were the bad guys.

I remember running around in my backyard yelling “Wolverines!” and playing like I was in Red Dawn with my buddies. I liked doing that, and of course, as a kid I had fantasies of doing it for real like every red blooded American child during that day and age did.

So, thank you Russia for bringing back the menacing idea of a hostile communist nation! I knew that there was something missing from my life and now I know what it was. If you want to invade Afghanistan again, I’m pretty sure we can work out a deal where you can have it.

John Edwards Press Release

August 9, 2008

Here is the complete press release regarding John Edwards affair. I don’t really trust the MSM to keep this available anywhere, so its going to be right here just in case.

In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs. I recognized my mistake and I told my wife that I had a liaison with another woman, and I asked for her forgiveness. Although I was honest in every painful detail with my family, I did not tell the public. When a supermarket tabloid told a version of the story, I used the fact that the story contained many falsities to deny it. But being 99 percent honest is no longer enough.

I was and am ashamed of my conduct and choices, and I had hoped that it would never become public. With my family, I took responsibility for my actions in 2006 and today I take full responsibility publicly. But that misconduct took place for a short period in 2006. It ended then. I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established. I only know that the apparent father has said publicly that he is the father of the baby. I also have not been engaged in any activity of any description that requested, agreed to or supported payments of any kind to the woman or to the apparent father of the baby.

It is inadequate to say to the people who believed in me that I am sorry, as it is inadequate to say to the people who love me that I am sorry. In the course of several campaigns, I started to believe that I was special and became increasingly egocentric and narcissistic. If you want to beat me up — feel free. You cannot beat me up more than I have already beaten up myself. I have been stripped bare and will now work with everything I have to help my family and others who need my help.

I have given a complete interview on this matter and having done so, will have nothing more to say.

And the Silky Pony Surrenders

August 9, 2008

So, there is this story that has been pushed around the blogosphere for QUITE some time now about John Edwards having an affair and getting his mistress pregnant during his campaign; the same campaign during which he used his cancer sick wife as a tool by the way; it’s been huge on the right side of the sphere. However other than Fox News doing a small thirty second bit on it, the Media has largely ignored it. In fact, they have gone so far as to edit stories out that commented on his affair, and to cover it up for him to the best that they could. Wikipedia went so far as to forcibly remove all mention of the affair from his entry and ban people from reinserting the proven facts about it. I know they banned people, I was one of them who got banned.

Well, their colors were shown today when he stepped forward and said that yes the National Enquirer was right. Here is the guy who was the white Barak Obama, talentless, inexperienced, and mostly campaigning on faux charisma and looks, and while those looks and charisma may have gotten his ashes hauled, they didn’t get him elected. He said that yes, he slept with that woman, but he did not get her pregnant. Of course, his staffer buddy who has been paying her $15,000 a month is the guy who got her pregnant, not Edwards.

So, either Edwards is a cuckolded cuckold, or yet again, he’s lying through his teeth trying to save some kind of face. It doesn’t matter what he says now however, the story has been proven true. He did sleep with her, he probably did get her pregnant, and his wife is pissed. He hasn’t taken a paternity test; supposedly because it’s not his kid, which a paternity test would prove, but in reality he won’t take it because it would make him liable for child support to the tune of millions of dollars. He said that a paternity test would clear it all up, and he hopes for one soon. However given the fact that he’s an ambulance chasing lawyer, he probably knows some shady doctors and hospitals, and unless his biological sample is cared for with more security than fort knox, the odds on honest reporting in either the news, or in a press release, are far from likely. He’s screwed himself, the MSM has screwed themselves, and the editors of wikipedia have shown themselves to be members of the same flock.

Now, Edwards SAYS that when he was caught, coming out of her hotel room at 3 or 4 in the morning, he had just been there to talk with her at the request of a friend. That he had been there for just a few minutes before leaving and being caught red… err… handed by the National Enquirer. He doesn’t explain why he was there for hours, why moans and thumping came from the hotel room, or why he went there to talk to her at 3 in the fucking morning. To me, it sounds like he went there to have sex with her, then leave having done his business, and damn the proles from catching him having just done his dirty work.

Oh, and he more than likely won’t get the vice presidential nod now because of it. I do wonder however if Rielle Hunter will still get her $15,000 check this month.

One funny thing about this situation however. He said that the timing of the affair makes it impossible for him to be the father of the 5 month old child. However various reports, including the egg-on-the-face CNN state that his own wife has known about the affair since 2006. Given that these allegations broke in October of last year, and that there is pictoral proof of his meeting her in hotel rooms and the like, I find it highly likely that he IS in fact the father.

Now, he denied the allegations about the affair for almost a year yet had admitted to his family about it in 2006. He bold faced lied to reporters, questioners, staffers, and the american public when he said the affair wasn’t real. He lied as plain as day, and now thinks that because some small parts of the questions weren’t true made the whole story a lie and thusly something he could deny. According to him, he was telling 99% truth and just 1% lie. Of course, that 1% is closer to 100% in this case, but he’s a lawyer and a former politician, numbers confuse them until it’s time they get paid. Given his lies about this situation thus far, I do hope that people continue to finally call him on his lies about this situation. He coerced his staffer to declare paternity, and is lying about not giving Rielle Hunter money.

Considering the fact that John McCain was tarred by implication by the New York times about alleged impropriety, the fact that now, almost a YEAR after this was first reported, it is finally getting main stream coverage is asinine. Perhaps the Media would like to apologise to the American people for lying to them and misleading them on this subject.

They could even use John Edwards example from his press release. 1% truth, 99% lies.
