Surge, Baby Surge!
John McCain says that word over and over. I think it has something to do with the blue pills he gobbles.
"Surge"...It's the NEW Grunt!
Starting with a proposal for a military strategy thought up by a marketing person, McCain has now seized on this essentially meaningless term as his cure all for the manifest ills that infect America. Put aside for the moment that there was, in fact, no real "Surge" in Iraq. Now, John McCain is touting the Surge as his plan for solving inner city violence.
Let's re-brand this "Surge for America" proposal of McCain's for what it is...A Police State.
"And some of those tactics — you mention the war in Iraq — are like that we use in the military. You go into neighborhoods, you clamp down, you provide a secure environment for the people that live there, and you make sure that the known criminals are kept under control. And you provide them with a stable environment and then they cooperate with law enforcement, etc, etc."

That, of course, only follows in his current campaign motif, "Keeping America safe from Brown People!"
Protect Brittney and Paris from Evil...elect John McCain? I don't think so.
So I'm wondering...Has anybody asked the wingnut religious right about the kind of mental gymnastics that are required to go aghast at a very accomplished person with the middle name of Hussein, while at the same time go rah rah behind a man whose last name means "Son of Cain?"
Never, since I've been aware, has a Presidential campaign come down to so clear a choice between good and evil. We have one candidate who accepts the depths of disgust with which the rest of the world hold George W. Bush and the reality of the task ahead. Obama understands that he faces the task of a thorough cleaning of America's Augean Stables.
And then we have John McCain, whose proposals for America are to simply pile on more horse shit.
Looking at his campaign ads, he's already doing just that. I mean, how can anyone honestly buy into McCain's "Vote for me, I'm Not very popular" campaign slogan?
When you think about McCain's obsessions and his plans to "surge" America, you have to wonder, even though McCain voted with Bush 95% of the time, we may be better off under Bush than we will be under McCain.
If John McCain is elected, it is well possible that we will look back on the disastrous administration of George W. Bush...With sad fondness.
One thing we can be certain of if John McCain is elected...
America is gonna' get SURGED!
