Mom isn't reading here anymore, and I'm convinced that the following point can best be made by swearing, so here goes:
Fuck John McCain
You see, after whining about negative campaigning last night, he's running this robo-call:
But McCains' terrorist ties are OK, as he appears on G. Gordon Liddy's show:
where he describes Liddy as an "old friend," praises Liddy's "adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great," and said he was "proud" of Liddy.
G. Gordon freakin' Liddy? A true American Bastard:
In 1971, after serving in several positions in the Nixon administration, Liddy was moved to Nixon's 1972 campaign, the Committee to Re-elect the President (officially known as "CRP" but to opponents known as CREEP), in order to extend the scope and reach of the White House "Plumbers" unit, which had been created in response to various damaging leaks of information to the press. At CRP, Liddy concocted several plots, some far-fetched, intended to embarrass the Democratic opposition. These included firebombing the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. (where classified documents leaked by Daniel Ellsberg were being stored), kidnapping anti-war protest organizers and transporting them to Mexico during the Republican National Convention (which at the time was planned for San Diego), and luring mid-level Democratic campaign officials to a house boat in Baltimore where they would be secretly photographed in compromising positions with call girls. Most of Liddy's ideas were rejected, but a few were given the go ahead by Nixon Administration officials, including the break-in at Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office. Ellsberg had leaked the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times. At some point, Liddy was instructed to break into the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate Hotel.
. . . For his role in Watergate, which he coordinated with Hunt, Liddy was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping, and received a 20-year sentence. He served a total of five and half years in prison, including over 100 days in solitary confinement, before his sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter and he was released on September 7, 1977.
Liddy is noted for controversial advice to his radio audience, including on one occasion in 1994, after the federal raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas, Liddy advised his listeners: "Now if the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms comes to disarm you and they are bearing arms, resist them with arms. Go for a head shot; they're going to be wearing bulletproof vests. ... Kill the sons of bitches."
This sick son-of-a-bitch would break Federal laws and kidnap and possibly kill people to protect his beloved President, damn the country and the Constitution. That's Country First™ we can believe in.
McCain has nothing to give except crap to offer, so that's what we get.
Forget "war hero". Forget "great man". Forget "years of service to country." Forget it all.
John McCain is a ruthless prick would would sell Cindy's ass at a Tailhook convention for a few votes.
Nothing left of honor or reputation.
John McCain is nothing.
