My Dear Sweet Friends....
Please forward this to all in your friends list so more can learn about our nominee John McCain. I should have trusted that "hinky" felling many years ago when I first listened to him on Face the Nation. I'm sure many of you have had that "hinky" feeling about people throughout your lives like I have.
I have come to trust that feeling..and for me personally..having Native American blood..also having many other rich and wonderful cultures mixed into my family...including Vietnamese, African American, Irish, Scotish, Celt and French Canadian....diversity and uniqueness within all of us is what makes this world a beautiful place...and if anything ever pushes my buttons and makes me more angry it is racism and violence of any kind to any living creature....GGrrrr.I don't know which creeps me out more..McCAin or Palin...but these two need to be ...oooo..I can't even find the words for it...so please use your own imagination...*S*
Love You All Dearly
A must read people!! PLEASE make sure this gets passed on. My best friend who I'd trust with my life got this from an aquaintance of hers.. PLease read and pass on to everyone you know. This abusive SOB shouldn't be president. He is not only against Gays and women.. He is a pig as well and a bully, just ask those who REALLY know him.. PLease pass on to everyone on your list. Thanks, Lynda L.

>> MY HOLIDAY WITH JOHN McCAIN
>> It was just before John McCain's last run at the
>> presidential nomination
>> in 2000 that my husband and I vacationed in Turtle Island
>> in Fiji with
>> John McCain, Cindy, and their children, including Bridget
>> (their adopted
>> Bangladeshi child).
>> It was not our intention, but it was our misfortune, to
>> be in close

>> Island has a small
>> number of bungalows and their focus on communal meals force
>> all vacationers
>> who are there at the same time to get to know each other
>> He arrived at our first group meal and started reading
>> quotes from a pile
>> of William Faulkner books with a forest of Post-Its
>> sticking out of them. As
>> an English Literature major myself, my first thought was
>> "if he likes this

>> I soon realized that McCain actually thought we had come

>> then became a regular
>> part of each meal. Out of politeness, none of the
>> vacationers initially
>> protested at this intrusion into their blissful holiday,
>> but people's
>> buttons definitely got pushed as the readings continued day
>> after day.
>> Unfortunately this was not his only contribution to our
>> entertainment. He waxed on during one meal about how
>> Indo-Chine women had
>> the best figures and that our American corn-fed women just
>> couldn't meet up
>> to this standard. He also made it a point that all of us
>> should stop Cindy
>> from having dessert as her weight was too high and made a
>> few comments to
>> Amy, the 25 year old wife of the honeymooning couple from
>> Nebraska that she
>> should eat less as she needed to lose weight.
>> McCain's appreciation of the beauty of Asian women
>> was so great that
>> David the American economist had to move his Thai wife to
>> the other side
>> of the table from McCain as McCain kept aggressively
>> flirting with and
>> touching her.
>> Needless to say I was irritated at his large ego and his
>> rude behavior
>> towards his wife and other women, but decided he must have
>> some redeeming
>> qualities as he had adopted a handicapped child from
>> Bangladesh. I asked
>> him about this one day, and his response was shocking:
>> "Oh, that was
>> Cindy's idea - I didn't have anything to do with
>> it. She just went and
>> adopted this thing without even asking me. You can't
>> imagine how people
>> stare when I wheel this ugly, black thing around in a
>> shopping cart in
>> Arizona. No, it wasn't my idea at all."
>> I actively avoided McCain after that, but unfortunately
>> one day he
>> engaged me in a political discussion which soon got us on
>> the topic of the
>> active US bombing of Iraq at that time. I was shocked
>> when he said, "If I
>> was in charge, I would nuke Iraq to teach them a
>> lesson". Given McCain's
>> personal experience with the horrors of war, I had
>> expected a more
>> balanced point of view. I commented on the tragic
>> consequences of the
>> nuclear attacks on Japan during WWII - but no, he was not
>> to be dissuaded.
>> He went on to say that if it was up to him he would have
>> dropped many more
>> nuclear bombs on Japan. I rapidly extricated myself from
>> conversation as I could tell that his experience being
>> tortured as a POW
>> didn't seem to have mellowed out his perspective, but
>> rather had made him
>> more aggressive and vengeful towards the world.
>> My final encounter with McCain was on the morning that he
>> was leaving
>> Turtle Island. Amy and I were happily eating pancakes when
>> McCain arrived
>> and told Amy that she shouldn't be having pancakes
>> because she needed to
>> lose weight. Amy burst into tears at this abusive
>> comment. I felt fiercely
>> protective of Amy and immediately turned to McCain and
>> told him to leave
>> her alone. He became very angry and abusive towards me,
>> and said, "Don't
>> you know who I am." I looked him in the face and
>> said, "Yes, you are the
>> biggest asshole I have ever met" and headed back to
>> my cabin. I am happy
>> to say that later that day when I arrived at lunch I was
>> given a standing
>> ovation by all the guests for having stood up to
>> McCain's bullying
>> Although I have shared my McCain story informally with
>> friends, this is
>> the first time I am making this public. I almost did so in
>> 2000, when
>> McCain first announced his bid for the Republican
>> nomination, but it soon
>> became apparent that George Bush was the shoo-in candidate
>> and so I did not
>> act then. However, now that there is a very real
>> possibility that McCain
>> could be elected as our next president, I feel it is my
>> duty as an
>> American citizen to share this story. I can't imagine
>> a more scary outcome
>> for America than that this abusive, aggressive man should
>> lead our nation.
>> I have observed him in intimate surroundings as he really
>> is, not how the
>> media portrays him to be. If his attitudes toward women
>> and his treatment
>> of his own family are even a small indicator of his real
>> personality, then I
>> shudder to think what will happen to America were he to be

Rove’s Third Term
By PAUL KRUGMAN
Published: July 4, 2008
Al Gore never claimed that he invented the Internet. Howard Dean didn’t scream. Hillary Clinton didn’t say she was staying in the race because Barack Obama might be assassinated. And Wesley Clark didn’t impugn John McCain’s military service.
Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary, titled his tell-all memoir “What Happened.” But a true account of modern American politics should be titled “What Didn’t Happen.” Again and again we’ve had media firestorms over supposedly revealing incidents that never actually took place.
The latest fake scandal fit the usual pattern as an awkwardly phrased remark, lifted out of context and willfully misinterpreted, exploded across the airwaves.
What General Clark actually said was that Mr. McCain’s war service, though heroic, didn’t necessarily constitute a qualification for the presidency. It was a blunt but truthful remark, and not at all outrageous — especially given the fact that General Clark is himself a bona fide war hero.
Yet the Clark affair did reveal something important — not about General Clark, but about Mr. McCain. Now we know what a McCain administration would represent: namely, a third term for Karl Rove.
It was predictable that the McCain campaign would go wild over the Clark remarks. Mr. McCain’s run for the White House has always been based on persona rather than policy: he doesn’t have ideas that voters agree with, but he does have an inspiring life story — which, contrary to the myth of the modest maverick, he talks about all the time. The suggestion that this life story isn’t relevant to his quest for office was bound to provoke a violent reaction.
But the McCain campaign went beyond condemning General Clark’s remarks; it went out of its way to distort them. “This backhanded slap against John as not being a worthy warrior because he just got shot down is one of the more surprising insults in my military history,” said retired Col. Bud Day, who participated in a conference call organized by the campaign. In fact, General Clark had said no such thing.
The irony, not lost on Democrats, is that Col. Day himself has done what he falsely accused Wesley Clark of doing: he appeared in the 2004 Swift boat ads that impugned John Kerry’s wartime service.
The willingness of the McCain campaign to engage in these tactics, employing such tainted spokesmen, tells us that the campaign has decided to go negative — specifically, to apply the strategy Karl Rove used so effectively in 2002 and 2004 (but not so effectively in 2006), that of portraying Democrats as unpatriotic.
And sure enough, Adam Nagourney of The New York Times reports signs of the “increasing influence of veterans of Mr. Rove’s shop in the McCain operation.”
Will Rovian tactics work this year?
In 2002 and 2004, Republicans were so successful at playing the patriotism card thanks to a combination of compliant media and cowering Democrats. At first, the Clark affair suggested that nothing has changed. News organizations reported as fact the false assertion that General Clark criticized Mr. McCain’s military service, and the Obama campaign rushed to “reject” his remarks.
“Two days into the Wesley Clark fallout,” wrote the Columbia Journalism Review on Tuesday morning, “the press, the G.O.P., and the Obama campaign all seem to have agreed that Clark’s recent remarks on John McCain’s service record were at best impolitic and at worst despicable.”
Since then, however, both the press and the Obama campaign seem to have recovered some of their balance. Opinion pieces have started to appear pointing out that General Clark didn’t say what he’s accused of saying. Mr. Obama has also declared that General Clark doesn’t owe Mr. McCain an apology for his “inartful” remarks. In the end, the Clark affair may have strengthened the Obama campaign.
Furthermore, my sense, though it’s hard to prove, is that the press is feeling a bit ashamed about the way it piled on General Clark. If so, news organizations may think twice before buying into the next fake scandal.
If so, the campaign has just taken a major turn in Mr. Obama’s favor. After all, if this campaign isn’t dominated by faux outrage over fake scandals, it will have to be about things that really did happen, like a failed economic policy and a disastrous war — both of which Mr. McCain promises will continue if he wins.
