First things first

By Capt. Fogg

So, you continue to ask yourself why, in a nation of 300 million people, Sarah Palin is the most qualified to take over the office of President should John McCain die in office? If you don't, read no further.

The first thing to note is that "the maverick" didn't make the choice, it was made by a little known, ultra right religious group known as the Council for National Policy and Sarah Palin was handed to McCain on a platter, ready to be their mole, their representative, their tool. Does this call into question the man's loyalties, confidence in his own judgment, independence? Doesn't this illuminate his real concerns, his real agenda? If she was an ideal candidate, it is because she's too ditzy, too inexperienced, too ignorant to make waves: grateful enough for the honor that she won't do anything but serve her purpose which is to oppose abortion, oppose equal rights for people the Council doesn't like, and be the cheerleader for the Christianization of the United States government.

According to The Nation, it was to this group that W. pledged to appoint only anti-abortion judges in 2000. In 2004, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist told the group that "The destiny of the nation is on the shoulders of the conservative movement." In 2008, John McCain sold his soul to the same group. In return for his abandoning a leadership position; for his capitulation to the group that has been behind the selling out of America, John McCain will reconcile with the group sworn to overturn the US constitution by foisting a totalally and absurdly underqualified Sarah Palin. No wonder he only saw her twice: his opinion means nothing when it comes to insuring our country's future. He didn't need to interview her, he only needed to follow orders.

A vote for John McCain is a vote for a secret club of Christian supremicists meeting secretly out of sight of reporters and unbeknownst to the general public and with the goal of making this a country governed by their religious convictions - not yours or mine or by the secular constitution that guarantees our religious freedom. Like George W. Bush, McCain is only The Decider in as far as he decides what other people tell him to decide. A man prepared to take an oath to preserve and protect the constitution, yet who has bargained to undermine it in return for political support is in my estimation flirting with treason. If you support this man, you are an enemy of America, an enemy of freedom. You're a dupe, a patsy, a chump and a fool being led around by the promise that your religion will have a special place above that of others. You don't belong here.

  • Where do you get this shit from? Wait -- a Martian is knocking at my door. Back soon.

    Actually, if you weren't so afraid that Obama could lose, you wouldn't bother with this tripe.

  • Poor anon, we must forgive our brother and make him see the error of his ways. He has taken up the cause of the immoral valued right wing.

  • Where do I get it from? It's been reported in major news magazines, and newspapers, even those with right leaning tendencies. Look for yourself.

    Where do you get off posting on a political forum with your level of not knowing? Who predigests your opinions for you? Who convinced you that temper tantrums can substitute for brains?

    No result of this election is going to affect me much - you're the one who will have to suffer, but there's very good reason for you to fear the consequences of another administration controlled by people with nefarious interests and staffed with incompetents.

    Perhaps if your entire information acquisition system wasn't based on sucking up propaganda and abject surrender of whatever mental facilities you might have, you would be embarrassed to say the things you do, but the real opiate of the masses these days is
    the Republican Party and you're hooked, aren't you?

    Anyway, ask the martian at your back door. It's a certainty he knows more about what goes on on planet Earth than you do.

  • I take it the NYT is your "right-wing" source. And even if it's the National Review, who cares? Republicans (even John McCain) tend to take advice from fellow conservatives. But anyway, anyone can make up a name on these fucking blogs so capt fogg and grant haws are the same as anonymous to me. And Fogg, you're angrier than ever. But why? Obama should win handily. ALL nations have had their nut cases, and if you think I and McCain and Sarah Palin are just a part of that group, good for you. Oh -- have you heard how dismissive the MSM is of all of you (and I don't mean Fox). Yoy are simply not taken seruiously at all, but you are VERY good at fictional story-telling. CONGRATULATIONS!
