“My Fellow Prisoners” McCain Addresses America

Looks like the Straight Talk Express made another stop in Crazy Town. Choo choo!

John McCain made an eerie Freudian slip when he referred to the American people as “My Fellow Prisoners.”

How Telling!

RobotBoy wonders if “maybe that’s his post-traumatic stress kicking in.”

I find it interesting in light of his recent comment about always aspiring to be a dictator.

McCain Dreams of Dictatorship! Isn’t that a Deal-breaker?

Who’d a thunk that a presidential nominee could say he’s always aspired to be a dictator and America would just nod, “Well, isn’t that nice, it’s good to have a dream. Think big, boy, think big.”  OK, maybe we didn’t say that but we said nothing. Nothing. Like it’s no biggie. How can that be? If we elect John McCain, that’ll be all the atta-boy he needs. He’s running for President of the United States but he wants more power than the oval office allows. Are we down with a dictator, America?

Captain America sez "Down with Dictators!"

Captain America sez "I'm voting for the guy who's not a dictator. And doesn't want to be."

I was gonna write about Californication yesterday… but then McCain said some crazy scary shite even for him. Clear as day, easy as pie, like it was a familiar thought, John McCain said “If I were a dictator, which I always aspire to be –“ and my jaw dropped. My solar plexus tightened. I got the wicked chills. Writing about a sexy TV show went straight out the window. Instead I furiously typed away in a rush to post before McCain’s comments hit the evening news and the clip blew up all over the net (it’s on video, there’s no rumor, there’s no innuendo.) But I haven’t heard a peep about it and the piece I posted has had only a handful of hits. This worries me. This should’ve raised some hackles.

But this hubby & his honey moment was evil?

This hubby & his honey moment was pure evil.

After Senator Barrack Obama received the democratic nomination, he and (future first lady, fingers crossed) Michelle Obama shared a “we did it, baby” fist bump. That innocent gesture had everyone so spooked that the Obamas were accused of being Taliban-supporting terrorists. Yet McCain confesses that he has always aspired to be a dictator and it’s not even a blip on the radar? Maybe I’m naive but that surprises me. America is a Democracy not a Dictatorship. A presidential nominee should be the first to uphold our country’s vaunted “democratic ideals.” Why is no one saying “What up with that, old man? Wanna take it outside?” Aren’t those fighting words in this the old U-S-of-A? It oughta warrant a tighty-whitey wedgie at the very least.

Normally, I loves me a maverick but McCain doesn’t deserve his nickname. Not anymore. He’s a loose cannon nutball, not an outlaw trickster with a fresh vision and a brave plan. And now that he’s saying I’ve always aspired to be a dictator, well, I have to wonder if maverick is just code for something darker and more sinister.

Mao is a gas as Mickey but in real life, no. No no no.

Despite being a recent pop fad, dictators are still evil despots. McCain’s comment oughta be a deal breaker. Dictators are death. They’re silly as flocked Kozik busts but in real life, in our real lives, no good. No good! Bad. To the bone.

Is Pinko Smokin' Joe a McCain hero?

I got the Robot Boy a Smoking Joe for his birthday and it’s a witty touch atop a stack of books on punk rock, trickster gods & Anarchy. But I would never invite the real Stalin over for cake and ice cream. The Robot Boy might — for the sake of dialogue — but political conversations can be a downer; toss in a Tyrant and that’s a real party pooper.

You’d think that McCain’s comment (“If I were a dictator, which I always aspire to be–“) would’ve dropped like a hot steaming turd all over the Republican Party. Party’s over, folks, go home and wash the stink off. Letterman was spot on when he said the McCain campaign’s “starting to smell.”

As my dad used to say — “No shit, Sherlock.”

McCain Confesses to “Dictactor” Aspirations (w/video)

McCain knows what’s best for America — a good old fashioned Dictatorship!
Prez, dictator, what's the difference?

Prez, dictator, what's the dif?

There McCain was just blabbing away about the economic crisis when it slipped from his mouth with the greatest of ease,”If I were a dictator, which I always aspire to be –” 

Whoa, whoa, wait a second, did he just say?  Did he just admit to ALWAYS aspiring to be a DICTATOR?

No, no, that can’t be. No. Rewind. 

 “If I were a dictator, which I always aspire to be–”

WHAT!?!?  WTF?!  Are you kidding me?

Up & down my spine some heebies just joined some jeebies for a jig.

There’s an ice cold sting at the nape of my neck. Shiver shiver.

How very  UN-AMERICAN of John McCain.

IF Obama had said such a thing, there’d be a fork in him. He’d be DONE.

So that  explains why McCain chose that useless twit Palin as his VP.  He doesn’t WANT a partner in running the country. He’s not looking for intelligent imput or fresh insight.  John “The Maverick” McCain has no need for the democratic process. He has other plans.

Here's to an Orwellian Sci-fi Future!

McCain's got an Orwellian Sci-fi Future in Mind
