Campaign 2008: A Choice Between the Lesser of Two Dumbers
And you're voting for whom for president? With at least 3 far better choices, why are you limiting yourself to voting for dumb vs. dumber?
It is refreshing that someone from the national media is noticing the ridiculous political straits that we have
I won't be needing to watch the next debate. It would be a waste of time. The one I watched already made me embarrassed enough for my country.gotten locked into. With American confidence in the economy at its lowest point since the 1930's, and with our confidence in Congress at an all-time low, does anyone besides me and Kenric Ward find it ironic that the only two choices for president being served up by the national news media (1) are members of a record-breakingly-reviled Congress, and (2) have no clue about how to restore confidence in our economy? Mr. Ward's opinion piece, released by Scripps-Howard this morning, says
the mainstream media...persists in the notion that America's political duopoly — fronted and funded by the same racketeers who got us into this mess — can deliver solutions.Anyone who would vote for a "maverick" or a "messiah" is just plain stupid.
While the press works itself into its quadrennial lather, thinking Americans wearily ask, "Is this the best there is?"
McCain, The Pseudo-Maverick
In an effort to craft an undeserved image, the news media in the
Does anyone else find it ironic that the only two choices for president being served up by the national news media (1) are both members of a record-breakingly-reviled Congress, and (2) have no clue about how to restore confidence in our economy?US have, for the last several years, designated John McCain as a Maverick Republican. Pshaw! The "Maverick" has to his credit (1) agreement with Neo-conservatives that we should occupy Iraq with our military for another hundred years, (2) stumbling across the aisle to support Democrats in blaming capitalist man for the destruction of the earth by future global fire, and (3) the pushing through of campaign finance reform that helped, more than any of its predecessors, to ensure that incumbent establishment bureaucrats, elected or otherwise, retain their federal offices in perpetuity.
If you really want a maverick, vote for someone who thinks for him- or herself, and who is not on the Establishment side of the line nearly so often.
Obama, The Messiah
Obama's not the Messiah. Nor is he the anti-Christ. He's just your everyday run-of-the-mill gangster.
Obama is a friend of Louis Farrakhan, who recently implied that
Obama's not the Messiah. Nor is he the anti-Christ. He's just your everyday run-of-the-mill gangster.Obama is the new Messiah. He is friends with convicted Chicago real estate developer Tony Rezko. He's been in pretty cozy with Franklin Raines who profited nicely from the demise of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. He's related to a woman who, following passage of a pork laden bill in the US Senate, received a $200,000 salary increase. He's been a long-time associate of terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. He nearly has the Shady-Characters-R-Us market cornered, yet about 50% of Americans are considering voting for him for the highest office in the land?
He's not a Messiah, because the Messiah was honest in his business and political dealings. And he's not the anti-Christ, because the anti-Christ does a much better job of pretending to be honest. In reality, Obama's just a two-bit gangster.
Are You Confident that Either of These Guys Can Help Pull the Economy Out of a Nosedive?
I watched the recent debate between Candidate "me" and Candidate "that one", and--based on the "blah blah blah, it's your fault" syndrome--I won't be needing to watch

The one I watched already made me embarrassed enough for my country. Neither of these people have a clue how the economy got this way, let alone how to fix it. All of the four non-Establishment candidates (Chuck Baldwin, Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader, and Bob Barr) have more of a clue (some of them much more) than Obama and McCain.
Kenric Ward sums it up:
It's about time we started investing in third-party candidates, because dumb and dumber haven't got a clue. If you vote for either of them, that makes you dumber-er.
Fact is, there's hardly a dime's worth of difference between Obama and McCain when it comes to dealing with the metastasizing credit crisis. Both supported the widely unpopular and apparently ineffective $700 billion bailout. Neither has a clue about what to do next. Some choice.
[The Wall Street] Journal declared, without substantiation, that "the electorate has shown little appetite for third-party candidates."For this, the political scribes can pat themselves on the back. By serving as handmaidens for Democratic and Republican spin doctors, they suck the oxygen right out of democracy. The media's treatment of Paul, a former Libertarian standard bearer, epitomized the bigotry.
