Ayers: Will Not Be in Cabinet
I know it's not just me; the whole election has taken on an air of severe absurdity and I'm thinking it's just time to not listen anymore and wait until the actual outcome. How absurd (really there is no other word for it) is it to have to reassure people that you won't have a bomber in your cabinet? That you will not take for your advisor a man who stomps (literally) on the flag and wishes he'd bombed more Capitol buildings? How can you have to disavow that in any way? And it's pretty funny as well that after this ad comes out "Come on, he was 8 years old, he said it was a bad thing, let's get over it now?" McCain's ad pointing out the connection is declared (by HuffPo of all places) illegal - according to McCain/Feingold LOL! HOIST BY HIS OWN PETARD! I'm sorry, but I was against McCain in the 2000 primaries and all he kept doing was pushing that campaign finance reform shit - pushing and pushing, and all it did was make him look like a hothead, after which it seemed like they put it through for him more as a legacy than out of any real need or desire for this unconstitutional "reform" law. Now here he is and his own ads are coming out against his own law? Pardon the expression, but you just can't make this stuff up. You can't write it. It writes itself. If it were made up, it would be too far-fetched. As Stephen King says in Lisey's story, "Reality is Ralph." If you're a fan, you already know. If you're not, I'll explain it later. Also, CBS is teaming up with someone to bring you the debates live online - and they promise you this as a come-on: "Be sure to tune into this CBS News link not only to watch the 90-minute debate live, beginning at 9 p.m. EDT, but also for follow-up live network coverage and then an exclusive Web-only show featuring Katie Couric and the CBS News political team." Oh yeah, I'll be sure not to miss THAT. "On the Webcast, slated to begin at 11 p.m. EDT, Couric will talk with special guests and undecided voters" Again with talking to idiots? I'm sorry, is anyone "undecided"? How stupid do you have to be, I ask again, to stand for NOTHING, to have NO philosophical or moral underpinnings, and to NOT be able to make a simple decision? Why do YOU, being that stupid, get the limelight for 30 days every 4 freaking years? It happens every damn time. If you can't make a decision, get the hell out of the way and let the grownups handle it, ok? Jeez Louise.
