They've Gone Too Far
I know I've been harping about the McCain/Palin campaign fomenting hatred, violence and racism during their stump speeches, but this little video clip helps to illustrate what I've been saying.
While it's true that I loathed Bush and Cheney's campaigns, even they didn't sink this low in their desire to win.
I read a lot about people who claim to know McCain and say he must be hating to do what his handlers tell him to do, but why then has he done it anyway?
Is he really that weak?
Palin is an unsophisticated rube without the political acumen or experience to know any better, but hasn't McCain been around long enough to avoid scorched earth politics?
Desperation is a miserable affliction. You can smell it on a person like burnt Styrofoam.
Desperate politicians try to hide it- using slogans like "country first," when it's so clear they'd watch the country implode before they'd do the honorable thing and admit they've betrayed their own principles in order to win.
Obama hasn't won yet, though all signs seem to be pointing that way. But McCain has already lost.
He's lost his self respect.
He's lost the "honor" of being a POW by over-exploiting it for personal gain.
He's lost all credibility.
He's lost the people's trust.
He's lost his mind.
