John McCain was apparently born under a sign that says: “Trouble Shall Follow Me at Crucial Periods in My Life!”
It’s beginning to look like Sarah Palin is NOT the only person around McCain, who (for republican’s sake) apparently needs to zip it!
Joe McCain… (Yet another Joe!?) told the Boston Globe in September, he worries that he might say something that will cause his brother a problem, and he doesn’t want to violate his mantra: “Do no harm.” According to the paper, as voters seek to learn more about John McCain, 71, few people can provide a better perspective than his 65-year-old brother…Joe!
Let’s look at Joe. For some perspective!
Fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree, it’s said. (In defense of Joe…he did tell The Globe that he watched a televised speech by Obama and couldn’t turn it off. “I was mesmerized by the guy’s speech…”)
Anyway, Joe “The Brother McCain”:
• …fired off an angry e-mail to his brother’s campaign mid-October, blasting them for controlling his brother’s campaign too tightly…and denying media access. (Better judgment than your brother, Joe!)
• On Tuesday (October 21) Joe Plumber, sorry, I mean Joe McCain…was speaking at an event in support of his brother. He referred to Arlington and Alexandria…two Democratic-leaning areas in Northern Virginia “…as: Communist Country.” He later apologized. A McCain campaign spokeswoman called potential presidential first brother Joe’s remark: “An unsuccessful attempt at humor.” You betcha!
• Earlier this week, Joe McCain called 9-1-1…the police emergency line, because he was angry he was stuck in traffic! (Temper tantrums seem to run in the McCain family!)
The 9-1-1 call went to emergency operations in the city of Alexandria, Virginia, on October 21. (Was Joe McCain heading to/from the event where he called those two Virginia suburbs “Communists”? Think for a moment you are Joe McCain. You begin to feel that you are surrounded by communists…the area starts looking like China’s Tiananmen Square! Wouldn’t you want to get out of traffic, too?)
Operator : 9-1-1 — state your emergency
Caller: It’s not an emergency, but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes… emergency operations and yet traffic’s coming the other way?
Operator : Sir, are you calling 9-1-1 to complain about traffic? (Pause)
Caller: “F_ _ _ you.” (Caller hangs up)
The complaint call about traffic on the Wilson Bridge forced the 9-1-1 dispatcher to call back. The voice mail on the other end appears to belong to Joe McCain:
“Hi this is Joe McCain. I can’t take this message now because I’m involved in a very (inaudible) important political project. I hope on November 4th we have elected John.”
According to the news report…JOE MCCAIN CALLED 9-1-1 BACK, TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THEM NOT GETTING IT!
Caller : Somebody gave me this riot act about the violation of police.
Operator : Did you just call 9-1-1 in reference to this?
Caller : Yeah.
Operator : 9-1-1 is to be used for emergencies only, not just because you’re sitting in traffic.
These police operators are so elitist! When Joe McCain and his big brother get into the White House, he can just tweak the report…make it say whatever suits HIM. Need help? Ask Palin how she re-did the expense report detailing her kids’ travel expenses!
Which takes us to a definitely…non-elitist sort! John McCain’s new Poster Girl! Ashley “The Campaign Worker” Todd, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She claimed SHE was mugged by a tall, black male (an “Obama supporter”) who used a knife to carve a “B” on her face. NOT TRUE.
And what does the “B” stand for? Beautiful? Blase? Brash? Bellicose? Belligerent? Bombastic? Need I go on?
McCain, of course, in the words of an old saying: rushed in “Where Angels Fear to Tred”. (I described him in an earlier article as: Shoot from the Hip McCain – Bombs First, Weapons of Mass Destruction, later!) So HE unleashes Palin, SHE sympathizes with “The Campaign Worker.” The love is flowing; I’m feeling bad for supporting a thug like Obama. Obama is feeling bad for being Obama! His decree: find that Rapper/Pimp/Hip-Hop/Gansta and bring him to me!
But voila, before the expected riot could materialize, Pittsburgh’s elitist police saved Obama’s hide! There was NO black guy – tall or short! No mutilation/carving on her face – not backward, perfectly…or forward, imperfectly! No McCain bumper sticker (which supposedly enraged the alleged attacker) on Ashley, “The Campaign Worker’s” car! No videotape of her even using that ATM…where the manufactured “assault” took place!
In short, NO CREDIBILITY – just more bad judgment…linked to Senator McCain.
The news made headlines nationwide, and worldwide. (Even China’s News Agency, Xinhua, picked it up!) Police seem to be suggesting that Ashley, “The Campaign Worker’s” tale could have fomented racial tension.
I’m rethinking what I said earlier that “Ashley, The Campaign Worker” is non-elitist? She IS from Texas, so she’s definitely NOT from an elitist East Coast enclave. (Do you see those small houses they build in Texas?) But still, don’t you just get the feeling that she thought she was better than everybody else? She is so, so elitist. It’s just that detectives in Pittsburgh are, alas…more elitister…also!
By the way, Fox News’ executive vice president, John Moody, responding to the campaign worker’s allegations, said:
“this incident could become a watershed event in the eleven days before the election. If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee. If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.”
Which one will Moody/Fox…um…run with? on Saturday? Racism…or Race-Baiting? Watershed or Tsunami?
• Former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld, who stomped for Mitt Romney, is endorsing Barack Obama! The sign next to him read: “Republicans for Obama”. (Darn, you mean we were that close to seeing: “Republicans for Hillary”?)
I’m sure, somewhere…deep in the heart of Red Country, there’s a sign saying “Democrats for McCain”.
It reads: Those Hoping against Hope McCain Wins So We Can Get a Job in His Administration, (‘cause Democrats can’t wait to Tell Us: “Good Riddance!?”) There was just one person – Connecticut “independent” Senator Joe Lieberman, holding the sign. So it was askew – sort of screw-wy.
Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Th-Thats all folks!
