McCain’s presidential campaign continues to beat the drum of victimhood at the hands of the mainstream media. The famously liberal news are “in love with” Barack Obama. This is a traditional ploy among election losers in recent times – George H.W. Bush asked Americans during his second term to “Annoy the media, re-elect Bush.” Already, this doesn’t bode well for McCain.
In 2008, we’re asked to choose a love song that best exemplifies the relationship between Obama and the press. Bloggers are drawing cartoons that might not be printed in the Sunday funnies. The ongiong love affair theme reminds me of a high school drama where a suiter is rejected by the woman he wants so badly.
It’s not doing a very good job, but the campaign is trying to use a bully pulpit of sorts to punish the media. How many people think this is going to endear the media to McCain? Going on the (weak) offensive against an institution you want something from, generally isn’t a good way to get what you want, and brings up questions aabout McCain’s jugement.
Whether there’s obvious or hidden bias among reporters who have little more credibility among many Americans than Jon Stewart, Obama’s campaign is somewhat more “newsworthy”. This year, one way or another, was destined to prove historic in the history of party nominated presidential politics. Thanks to George W. Bush’s failed policies, and not tenage crushes of reporters, will see in November 2008 the first non white president (with a funny name) of the US of A.
For some bizarre reason or another, my Peta blog post is drawing in visitors like there’s no tomorrow. It must be the reference to Australian politics. Anyway, I’m glad I could help people shed light on this issue.

Woman Shoots Herself While Trying To Kill Mice
POTTER VALLEY (AP) ― A Mendocino County woman who was trying to kill mice in her trailer with a gun ended up shooting herself and another person.
The mice escaped the shooting unharmed.
Stupid people shouldn’t have guns. Or hospital maybe access?
I’ll bet you anything she votes Republican, and probably doesn’t think John McCain is conservative enough.
Stewie Griffin, of Family Guy fame, commented “The same thing happened to me when I used some C4 to kill a bee once.”
Indeed, this is creepy. As they say on the internet, epic fail! Delaney has some interesting posts to check out – the tattoo collection is strangely fascinating.
Going after the women’s vote, and pandering to bikers in Sturgis, SD, John McCain suggested his wife, Cindy, should participate in a public topless (and occasionally bottomless) woman contest. Miss Buffalo Chip competes in, among other things, a pickle licking contest. The video is most certainly not safe for work!
Although it’s in exceptionally bad taste, McCain’s blunder was a joke. Sadly, he was not joking when, again in public, he called his wife a trollop. Or when he called her a whore – yet again, in public disgrace. (I have to admit I can’t tell the “trollop” story with a straight face. Nobody has used that word in 90 years!) This is a man who clearly has no respect for his wife, and doesn’t mind letting the country know it. This is also a man who left his previous wife because she gained wait after being injured in a traumatic car crash.
John McCain is a man with far less moral or family values than Bill Clinton himself. With great hypocracy, the Republican Party chose McCain to represent them, as if the presidency was some kind of “lifetime achievement” (ie being old, with just this one last chance) award.
So much for the dignity of the office of the president.
