    I’m Parrotlover77 and I approve of John McCain’s use of the Glaive from Krull in his logo.

    Wow! That is one disturbing image.

    Drill! Drill! Drill! We need more gas for the McCainMobile!

    Any idea how old is the picture they’re using in the ads? I’m guessing at LEAST 20 years old.

    And why is it the press had such limited access to his medical records and didn’t make a stink about it? The man has one foot in the grave and the other one on a banana skin.

    Republicans can be such an insecure and paranoid lot. This year I’ve come to learn that a distressing number of my co-workers hold very primitive (conservative) political views. Whatever. I can live with that. But when I slap one goddamned Obama/Biden bumper sticker on my car, I have to hear about it from these morons who inexplicably think a clueless bimbo from Alaska is the cat’s ass. They, of course, have their pickup trucks festooned with bumper stickers and magnets braying the far right’s greatest hits, like “FREEDOM ISN’T FREE!!!!”, or “IT’S A CHILD, NOT A CHOICE!!!!”, or my favorite, “IN CASE OF RAPTURE THIS VECHILE WILL BE UNMANNED”. Point out the inanity of one of those pearls of wisdom and you’re suddenly an unpatriotic terrorist sympathizer who hates America.

    Naturally, I’m not surprised by any of this. Their behavior is the same as any fundie, but only because so many of them are fundies. There is an indisputable political divide in America that seems irreconcilable. I place the blame for this solely at the feet of the far right. They have mastered the art of demagoguery and hyperbole in ways unfamiliar to people accustomed to reasoned thought. Democrats always suck at this, but that’s only because they still have a conscience. Until the great wave of stupidity in our country finally ebbs, we will continually be “sharply divided”, as the pundits on TV are fond of saying. Honest forms of political expression, like a benign bumper sticker, can rile up the unthinking masses as surely as taking a giant dump on a bible. But, if it ruins their day, them I’m all for it.

    I saw the following two bumper stickers, right next to each other, on a brontosaurus-sized family truckster: “McCain/Palin ’08″ and “Pray Hard”. I was left wondering, trying to figure out if the owner was one of those irony-challenged retard Repubs, or was one of us elitist intellectual snobs in disguise, trying to make a not-too-subtle point about the utterly useless options we’ll have if the Crypt Keeper and the Bimbo get into the White House.

    Brian – I have the same situation where I work. My pickup is now full of pro-Obama, ACLU, LCS, DoW, and various local liberal politician stickers. I guess they must have assumed I was one of them since I drove a pickup. Ha ha! I showed them. My pickup is for utility only and my next car is a Smart. I am not one of them!

    Anyway, I agree with the blame part. Liberals compromise. We compromise to a fault really. Look at the Senate the past two years. Repubs have fillibustered more than at any time in history. When Dems fillibustered, what did they do? WAAAH NUKULAR OPTION! WAAAAAAH! That’s a classic example of what you were talking about.

  7. Parrotlover77 Says:

    SB – Who knows what the real intent was, but it inspires me to come up with a bumper sticker to the effect of … Pray Hard – Don’t Vote!

    I need to work on a catchier phrase, but basically something that emphasizes the power of pray being more powerful than voting, so good christians should just, well, stay home! God will fix it all, right?

    Although it’s not directly related to this thread, just wanted to share this bit of fun for tonight’s debate.

    You know, I’ve been doing some thinking. I’ve heard it suggested that the Republican party should be allowed to die out entirely, and a newer (saner) political party should take over. Because the Republican party has become so rotten and corrupted by the corporations and the Religious Reich, as we’re all painfully aware of.

    While this sounds good in theory, I can’t help but think that were this to happen, the funny mentalists would just latch onto that party that rose to power, and like a brain-sucking parasite, hijack and corrupt that party, and thus pervert its original ideals into something ugly and unrecognizable, as has happened with the Repubs. What would be next? The Libertarians? The Independent party?

    I’ve also heard that both of the major parties should be dissolved, and that a bunch of smaller parties should take over…but, I’m not so sure that’d work so well, unless this country’s political system underwent some major changes.

    This is just food for thought guys…lol.

  10. Parrotlover77 Says:

    That’s why we need instant-run-off voting. Then you don’t need to do anything at all to force each major party to do anything. Parties will form, grow, corrupt, and die as part of a normal life cycle. Meanwhile, smaller start-ups will be given the leg-up they need to allow the public to no longer fear “throwing away their vote” by not voting for one of the two majors. That’s the key. The way to make it happen is by starting local. If you can get your city to have instant-run-off, then the next step is county. Then state, then national!

    well that just proves you don’t need a brain to be able to drive!! but hey,a new way to notice all the idiots on the road certainly can’t hurt! ..here’s your sign!!

    parrot and ladyR.,good thoughts!!

  13. Brian Says:

    What is it with presidential candidates making me late for frakking work?!? Some of you may recall my adventures navigating around the McCain campaign’s roll-out of Palin a few weeks back. So yesterday I’m driving down I-75 when traffic comes to a complete stop. By complete, I mean that there were people getting out of their vehicles and chatting. I assumed there had to be one whale of an accident up ahead and began plotting another way around it. All at once, everything starts moving again as if nothing had happened. As it turns out, the Secret Service temporarily shut the thing down because Barack Obama had just arrived in Dayton for an event and was leaving the airport I was about to pass. Oh well, at least this time it was for a worthy cause.

  14. Parrotlover77 Says:

    LOL Brian. Indeed, a worthy cause and prudent protection. I’m sure you’ve all seen by now the rantings of crazy right-wingers at the latest McCain/Palin rallies where they are yelling things like “terrorist,” “kill him,” “traitor” in response to mentions of Obama’s name.

    I’m not sure if McCain actually wants Obama killed or he’s just ignorant of what a bunch of racist right wingers are capable of when it comes to a black man potentially acheiving success in, well, anything. I retract my previous statement about McCain probably not being a racist. I’m not so sure anymore.

  15. Brian Says:

    PL,

    Yeah, this crap coming from McCain and Palin is nothing more than an insult to human dignity. When the chips are down, the Republican party shows its true colors…

    I’ve forwarded it on to every deluded friend and family member that has, over the course of the last year, sent me every inane bit of Republican propaganda they could wipe off their asses. If it gives them something to think about, fine. If it sends them into fits of apoplectic rage, fine too.

  16. S. Says:

    I get that right-wing garbage in my email as well.here’s the latest one,has anyone seen this one going around? well,remember, desperate times call for desperate measures! LOL. and desperate lies,all over again. I haven’t decided how to reply in kind yet,but I will :)
    he even has the audacity to say God Bless at the end…what an oxymoron.

It’s pure arrogance and conceit,just like McCain’s refusing to shake hands w/ Obama.even nascar drivers do that.it takes a good sport to be a good sport.McCain can’t even do that !
