Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse

Worse than Hucklebee, I mean:

The Catch
Both McCain and Obama are looking at Mayor Bloomberg for V.P. because he’s rich, Jewish, and with a head for business. What’s not to like?

What’s not to like? You’re kidding me, right?

I would like to hereby resurrect an old endorsement of mine from years back: Krusty the Klown for President! Hey, we could do worse. We will do worse.

I also hereby officially give up. I really do. No matter who wins this go-round, we all lose.

Update! John has seen the light:

Put very simply: John McCain is a liar. He’s a man without honor, without integrity, who could not have captured the Republican nomination had he run on making comprehensive immigration a top priority of his administration. Quite frankly, this is little different from George Bush, Sr. breaking his “Read my lips, no new taxes pledge,” except that Bush’s father was at least smart enough to wait until he got elected before letting all of his supporters know that he was lying to them.

Under these circumstances, I simply cannot continue to support a man like John McCain for the presidency.

And that’s about where I am on the issue, too. As I’ve said repeatedly, hoping to somehow miraculously elect conservatives by voting for barely-closeted liberals as “the lesser of two evils” over and over again is the height of folly, and it’s gotten us the execrable pack of RINOs we’re stuck with now. I’m not trying to tell anyone else how to vote, mind; we all have to follow our own hearts and consciences on that one, as always. But mine simply will not allow me to support McCain in any way, shape, or form.

  1. The proper strategy, in my view, is <a href=””><b>to defeat the GOP nationwide.</b></a> That has a fair chance of forcing its leading lights to take stock of themselves, their duplicities, and their contempt for the Americans who’ve supported them in the hope that they might really by guardians of freedom. Nothing else I’ve heard suggested in any forum has half a chance.

  2. Okay, I suppose there’s one way for Clinton to win…I think I’ll go wash my mouth out with gasoline now… 

  3. Anyone else besides this swell headed muttonhead MICHEAL BLOOMBURG i mean this wacko has a chip on his shoulder namly the block of wood on top of his neck

  4. And again, Mike, I have to ask the question:  Has this ever worked? 

    Political parties aren’t like errant children who can be “taught a lesson.”  They are amoral confederations of power seeking individuals. 

    They don’t “learn lessons,” they follow the scent of money and power, irrespective of ideology.  If the money and power (what little of it there was) to be had from proto-libertarians dries up they’ll just seek it somewhere else and not think a second thought about it. 

    I hear the Constitution Party and the Prohibition Party are composed of dedicated and consistent philosophers but that doesn’t keep them from being mere asterisks in the political history of this country. 

    On the flip side, do you think socialist idealogues got ahold of the democratic party overnight?  No, it was a slow and steady process that took years and years to acheive.  That’s how American politics works. 

    Exiling oneself to the political wilderness might make you feel “pure” but purity and $0.50 still won’t buy you a cup of coffee at 7-11.  No politician ever won an election on the basis of his rigid adherence to Republican ideals, not even Saint Ronald of California (Blessed be his name.) 

    American politics is about compromise, deal making, back scratching and tacking through shifting political winds.  Always has been and always will be.
