By Libby

If McCain had said this the media would be excusing it as -- ha ha -- McCain just had a fleeting senior moment. As in, "He really does too know the difference between Shia and Sunnis." And more along the lines of "He's a straight talkin' foreign policy expert, he was a POW you know. Pay no attention to that bumbling facade, he really isn't as clueless as he looks."

I mean everybody in the Village says so, so it must be true. And the only grill they'll be running up is the one on his barbecue. I understand once you've tasted his ribs, you simply must have the recipe for his dry rub.

Oh and they might play up their other favorite moderate independent, Holy Joe Lieberman, while he steps in to play defense again.

of course barack HUSSEIN obama doesn't know how many states there are, after all, he doesn't burst into tears whenever he hears star-spangled banner or wear a big "uncle sam" hat everywhere he goes. Remember he's under the control of the big bad ISLAMOFASCISTS it's all a very "manchurian candidatey" plot....
...Except that the creators & perpetrators of that myth never took the time to read the book or watch the original 1962 movie entitled "The Manchurian Candidate", as near a biography of John McCain as is to be found anywhere if one thinks "Vietnam" when they hear "Korea" when watching the movie.
I say this in jest, to highlight the absurdity of the political rumor-mongers hard at work on the right, at least i hope so, but my "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you" sensor has been going off. First, all the people that were trying to destroy him in the 2000 election become his best friends & supporters, then the positions he's taken on a host of important issues become their opposite as instantly & completely as can be, as if a mechanism had been moved from it's "off" to "on" position. Finally, I saw that creepy mothers day ad they cooked up for him, I don't know if you can follow my ravings this far, but when his mother goes on about him as "the kindest, gentlest, best child..." or some such thing I heard "Raymond Shay is the bravest kindest most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life." The phrase those brainwashed with the Manchurian Candidate were programmed to think whenever asked about him.
So yeah, let us go there this election season. We could use a "national discussion" on the way torture effects the mind, the results of all those old CIA experiments in 'special interrogation techniques" and how they erase personalities in the attempt to rebuild people from scratch (see chapter 1 of "The Shock Doctrine" by Naomi Klein) would be helpful not only for measuring up the Senator from Arizona but is necessary in light of the policies & practices employed in carrying out the "war on terror". His experience living through torture defines Mr. McCain as much as race defines Mr. Obama

God Libby, why bring logic in now? We've done so well without it to this point.

Randy - that's a good point that hasn't been really touched by anyone, but I've also been thinking along those lines. Not the Manshurian candidate so much as how the torture would have affected McNasty's personality and his decision making.

LOL Dan. I just can't seem to help myself.

Right Libby, i was just getting to his torture influenced psychology by way of my personal paranoia and illustrating a route of approach to it that is disarming of the weight of the issue
