Sorry, no clever post from this humble blogger this evening due to prior family commitments. However, there are two links to two articles that are MUST READS for a look into both John McCain and Sarah Palin.
From Rolling Stone; everything you always wanted to know (and then some) about John McCain but were afraid (VERY afraid) to ask: http://www.rollingstone.com/news/coverstory/make_believe_maverick_the_real_john_mccain
Sarah Palin’s connections with the extremist Alaska Independence Party may be deeper the we have been led to believe. From Salon.com: http://www.salon.com/news/feature/2008/10/10/palin_chryson/
LATE BREAKING NEWS: The McCain/Palin Campaign has released a statement clarifying Todd Palin’s sworn testimony regarding Troopergate, as well as the Governor’s involvement. Basically, this is a premptive strike (now we know what kind of Foreign Policy they have) in advance of the Alaska State Legislature’s report on “Troopergate”.
Juneau, we have a problem.
Needless to say, there will be LOTS to write about tomorrow.
Ark, I trust you’ve seen/heard Cindy McCain’s latest — explaining that of course John didn’t have problems with PTSD upon his return from Vietnam because he was trained on how to avoid it! The obvious implication is that the 30% of our returning troops who have so-called “adjustment problems” either weren’t adequately trained so as to be able to resist the traumas of war or that they just aren’t worthy of such training because they’re not part of the elite officer corps. Of course she made no mention of the many New Yorkers and others who were in Lower Manhattan on Sept. 11,2001.
His nastiness is the stuff of legend. Given the names he’s called her with others present, I can only wonder how he must go off when they’re alone. And it makes me wonder if perhaps that’s an explanation as to why she prefers to remain in AZ.
Trust me, my friend…I will have something to say about this, as soon as I can calm down and think through what I want to write. She hit a VERY sore point with me and a lot of regular folks and soldiers…and about half of the NY Metro area.
