If you’re against the budget deal, you lack intellectual integrity

So.sayeth.John.McCain…

Tuesday on the Senate floor, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) took a swipe at his fellow Republicans who disagreed with him on support of the Ryan-Murray budget deal, saying that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity.”

Really, John?  Really?

Actually, I think lost my intellectual integrity in 2008 when I voted for John McCain.

But then,  when I really think about it, I wasn’t voting for McCain at all.  I was voting for Sarah Palin.

Another week in the can

What can I say about the first full week of October 2008? Interesting? Memorable? Historic? Unsettling?

Yes, yes, yes, and yes.

On the blog front, we’ve even had another of those Red Letter Days in Nukedom. And, although it can’t really compare with having a pickle named after us by The Speed Shop Deli (in the Free State of Jefferson, natch), being called a “Religious Right Wingnut” by the dailyKos is certainly a badge of honor, and one not soon forgotten.

On to more interesting moments, and a true study in contrasts: First, a post from Chris Buckley offering his endorsement of “The One.” This is a disappointment, but frankly, only because of his last name.

So Chris…You don’t like the ticket, fine. I understand. There is nothing at all wrong with observing the time honored Southern tradition of going fishing on Election Day. Instead, you have decided to make it all about you, thus prodding those of us who respect your family name to question not your sincerity, but your motives.

Next, a truly inspiring article from blogger who describes seeing Sarah Palin in person. Here is an excerpt, but you really need to read it all.

As we were all starting to get a little anxious waiting for Sarah to appear, a speaker came on stage to let us know that when Sarah did finally arrive it would be something special, that she would be making a grand entrance.

AND SHE DID!

Suddenly the video screens showed the Straight Talk Express turning into the complex. The crowd went wild. And then something happened that totally blew me away. The bus actually drove into the Roberts Centre and suddenly with dry ice clouds and a great light show Sarah stepped out of the bus and onto the stage. It was better than any rock show I have ever attended.

As the economic de-leveraging and electoral madness approach a twin crescendo of epic proportions, I leave you with these words of encouragement:

Have Faith, my friends.

If McCain is “just like George Bush,” then Obama is just like ??

A tale in pictures, courtesy of Free Republic

The Obama campaign’s mantra is that John McCain is “just like George Bush”. Well, there are some distinct similarities.

Both men have the respect and admiration of our warriors.

Both were military aviators. McCain saw combat in Vietnam; George Bush volunteered, but was not sent.

And both men love this nation and understand American Exceptionalism…

The enemies of liberty and our country should make no mistake: America remains engaged in the world by history and by choice, shaping a balance of power that favors freedom. We will defend our allies and our interests. We will show purpose without arrogance. We will meet aggression and bad faith with resolve and strength. And to all nations, we will speak for the values that gave our nation birth.

I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach.

So yes, on the important issues that define what America stands for, and what she must do to combat our enemies, John McCain and George Bush are alike.

——————————–

But who does Barack Hussein Obama remind us of? His liberal policies remind us of a litany of failed socialists.

Obama’s calls for more government handouts reminds us of the 2004 democratic VP candidate, John “Two Americas” Edwards….

Where one America works hard, has church BBQs and volunteers to defend our country; and the other America buys 28,000 square foot homes with proceeds from class action lawsuits, and spends $400 every two weeks at the beauty parlor.

—————————–

Obama’s pie in the sky, no drilling energy policy reminds us of the 2000 Democratic Presidential Candidate, Algore, who trots around the globe in a private jet, chastising the peasants for their wasteful carbon footprints…

and declaring the internal combustion engine to be the “greatest enemy” of mankind while utterly ignoring the gathering storm of islamic terrorism.

—————————–

Obama’s anti-gun, anti-second amendment record clearly reminds us of Michael Dukakis whose “Just say Yes” to gun control platform led to a thorough drubbing at the hands of George Bush’s father…

and to much deserved ridicule to this day.

——————————–

Obama’s pro-infanticide record and policies reminds us very much of the pro-abortion Mondale/Ferraro ticket, which had the same enthusiastic support from NOW and NARAL that Obama has….

and led to his excellent showing in 1984 where he held onto his home state of Minnesota, by 3,800 votes.

——————————–

And significantly, Obama’s limp wristed foreign policy in which he blames America first certainly reminds us of the last ‘unknown’ democratic candidate who received the mainstream media’s undying affection, Jimmy Carter….

who still to this day cannot discern friend from foe of the United States of America.

———————————

And by dragging along the media to see him workout and shoot hoops, Obama reminds us of the 2004 democratic presidential candidate, John F. Kerry, who also tried to mask his elitism and effete lifestyle….

but who unfortunately, just like during Obama’s bowling adventure, had rogue photographers capturing his real essence.

———————————

And finally, Obama reminds us very much of the last black democratic presidential candidate, Al Sharpton, whose Community Organizing prowess certainly rivals that of Obama….

except that Al still holds his hand above his heart for the Pledge of Allegiance.

——————————-

So yes indeed, this election is truly an election between “more of the same” and something new. Unfortunately for the Obama and Biden team, the “more of the same” applies to them, as they are merely a continuation in a long line of elite, effeminate, tax hiking, enviro-alarmist liberals, who have no concept what real Americans value.

——————————-

If they want to see what change looks like and they want to understand America and patriotism, all they have to do is make an appointment with the next Vice President of the United States.

McCain, Obama react to Georgia-Russia conflict

Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama gave their opinions today on the current conflict between Russia and Georgia, both expressing their hopes for a cease-fire and a negotiated settlement.

McCain … believes NATO’s North Atlantic Council should convene an emergency session to demand a cease-fire, and begin talking about a peacekeeping force for South Ossetia.

Obama thinks the U.N. Security Council should pass a resolution calling for an immediate end to the violence. He also thinks a U.N. mediator should join efforts to try to end the fighting. source

I suppose someone forgot to tell Mr. Obama that Russia is a permanent member of the UN Security Council, with full veto power over any resolution.

He must be exhausted, lugging around that giant brain all the time.
