I know this election is going to be brutal, but how about a little class, huh?

This has got to be the most vile thing I have read in a while.

From the Chris Kelly at The Huffington Post, with the makes me want to vomit just a little remark in bold.

When John McCain says government is too big, what do these people think he means?

Who are we kidding?

John McCain was in the navy and then he was in the U.S. Senate. He has never cashed a check a bureaucrat didn’t write. I’m not trying to be glib, and I realize he was doing a solemn and dangerous job, killing people from the sky. But it was still government work.

Wait, except for those years as a POW. A sick but undeniable fact about John McCain: The only period in his life when he wasn’t living off the American taxpayer, he was living off the Vietnamese taxpayer.

Sick, indeed. Only, it’s not the “fact” that is sick in this case.

And it’s only June. It will get worse.

And we wonder why the world does not embrace our form of democracy.

  1. I’m no fan of John McCain but even I wouldn’t write such a venomous tirade. It’s too bad critics of both McCain and Obama couldn’t be more civil.

  2. The world doesn’t embrace our form of democracy because we like to give it to them at the end of a gun. Duh.

    What exactly was factually wrong about the statement? McCain’s milking this POW thing for every ounce of mojo he can get out of it. Fair game, then.
