Meanwhile, on the other side his opponent was an unaccomplished punk, 8 years a back-bencher in the Illinois State Senate, 4 years a back-bencher in the biggest collection of losers known to mankind, the U.S. Senate, and all we knew about him was that he certainly talked a good game, but he faithfully attended church for 20 long years run by a whitey-hating pastor. That and one of his early backers was an unrepentant domestic terrorist.
Alas, I was, as George H.W. Bush would put it "Dead Wrong", and legions of my fellow suburbanites fell in line along with armies of other politically brain-dead idiots who voted for this knucklehead, and here we are, Germany or Russia, take your pick, 75-90 years ago.
JacksonCalhoun, I must be a moron with you. I did not think the majority of this nation would put the most liberal Senator on record, with his puny experience, in the nation’s highest office. I figured he’d get support, and votes from reactionary backlash type folks, and very liberal folks.
I also thought McCain would be reasonably well trusted, and respected for his extraordinary service.
I guess I thought better of this nation.
I didn’t expect McCain to get fawned all over. But he was so obviously the better choice on every level that I had to believe at the end of the day, he’d win.
