John McCain: "I Really Didn't Love America...!"

Hat Tip to the Think On These Things blog.

In the above video, John Sydney McCain, III (JiSM) tells an audience that he "really didn't love America" (until he was 31 years old, when) he came back from Vietnam.

"I really didn't love America until I was deprived of her company." So, the country is a woman whom McCain didn't appreciate until she left him. More misogyny from John Sydney McCain, III.

McCain Jokes About Beating His Wife

On June 18, 2008, this blog predicted that John McCain's presidential candidacy would eventually be ended by one thing: that he called his wife a "cunt" and he can't deny it.

Now, Jack and Jill Politics points to an interview in which John McCain jokes about beating his wife. Jill Tubman says, "here's the money quote":
(On why he didn't choose Gov. Jim Gibbons to chair his Nevada campaign?)
MCCAIN: I appreciate his support. As you know, the lieutenant governor is our chairman.

JR: Why snub the governor?

MCCAIN: I didn’t mean to snub him,. I've known the lieutenant governor for 15 years and we've been good friends….I didn't intend to snub him. There are other states where the governor is not the chairman.

JR: Maybe it's the governor's approval rating and you are running from him like you are from the president?)

MCCAIN: (Chuckling) And I stopped beating my wife just a couple of weeks ago….
Really? Joking about beating Cindy the Rodeo Queen? Not cool. Not appropriate. This is the man who seeks to be our country's chief representative in diplomacy with other countries? Ugh.

Man, I cannot wait for the Obama-McCain debates to begin. That is going to be incredible. Cuz Grandpa ain't got no game, nah mean?
On the one hand, I want to caution readers that Arnold Schwartznegger was elected governor of California in spite on considerable evidence of misogyny on his part in the somewhat distant past. On the other hand, there's mounting evidence that McCain always was and continues to be Jurasic on matters of women's rights and dignity, which only exacerbates the perception that he's just to f**cking old to be president.

Ultimately, it's going to come down to one thing. He called his wife a "cunt" in front of reporters, and NOBODY does that. Or if they do, sooner or later their wife will be seeking refuge from them in a battered women's shelter, it it hasn't happened many times already.

"Cunt" Remark to Wife Spells End of McCain Campaign

"McCain's 'Cunt' Remark to Wife Spells End of His Campaign,
says Truth About McCain Blog.


In his book The Real McCain, author Cliff Schecter claims that John McCain made extremely ugly remarks about his wife Cindy McCain during a tirade witnessed by three reporters. "At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, 'You're getting a little thin up there,'" Schechter writes. "McCain's face reddened, and he responded, 'At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.' McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days." DrudgeReport
According to Google trends, the American public was probably unaware until recently that John McCain called his wife a "cunt" in public, in front of reporters, and that he confirms that he did by refusing to deny it.

Google trends shows the public's concern over the "cunt" remark has spiked dramatically since John McCain became one of two remaining alternatives" As many as a third of the hits at the Truth About McCain blog come from readers seeking to confirm that John McCain called his wife, Cindy, a "cunt" in public, in front of reporters.

"Americans simply will not elect a man
who calls his wife a "cunt in public."



In the case of George Allen, it was his "macaca" remark that has been seen over 300,000 times on YouTube. At the time time the Washington Post said,

In some European cultures, macaca is also considered a racial slur against African immigrants, according to several Web sites that track ethnic slurs. . . "This is trying to demean him, to minimize him as a person." WaPost

"In every losing electoral campaign, there is something the losing candidate says that crystalizes the public's conviction why the candidate ought not be elected."

The Truth About McCain blog predicts that John Sydney McCain's undoing result, above all, from John McCain's calling his wife a "cunt" in public, in front on reporters. He refuses to deny (and thereby confirms) that he did on video.

"John McCain will be unable to escape questions about his "cunt" remark.
For voters, it shows he lacks the stability and self control to be president."
In his book The Real McCain, author Cliff Schecter claims that John McCain made extremely ugly remarks about his wife Cindy McCain during a tirade witnessed by three reporters and two aides. "At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, 'You're getting a little thin up there,'" Schechter writes. "McCain's face reddened, and he responded, 'At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.' McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days." DrudgeReport
The mainstream media has so far been reluctant to address the question, if only because their editorial standards forbid the use of the word "cunt" in print and require that the word be omitted if spoken during a broadcast. However, it is inevitable that the question will arise during presidential debates and in other forums.

"The issue will that it is just as unacceptable to use the "C" word in American public discourse as it is to use the "N" word."

Arguably, it is just as unacceptable for a public figure to to demean and degrade women in public, using unspeakable vulgarities based upon their gender, as it is to use such vulgarities to degrade Blacks based on their color. The election may well turn on the public's judgment of whether calling one's wife the "C" word in a public forum is as bad as calling a stranger the "N" word in public. And whether a candidate who uses either term can be elected president in the new millenium.

This is debate is already occuring in the blogosphere now and promises to dominate public debate during the rest of the presidential campaign.

The Babbling Idiocy of John McCain

By Eddie Griffin

No wonder my ears are flapping in the wind. I heard him say it. But then he didn’t say. And, the American people listened on and forget what in the world he said to begin with.

HAT TIP to bravenewfilms for restoring my sanity. I did taw a putty tat. Just listen to John McCain himself in this video.

This is John McCain's first wife, Carol McCain.

John McCain says he's an heroic war survivor, but the real survivor is his first wife, Carol McCain, whom John unceremoniously dumped when he discovered that she had been injured in a car accident while he was in Vietnam. According to MailOnline,

McCain likes to illustrate his moral fibre by referring to his five years as a prisoner-of-war in Vietnam. And to demonstrate his commitment to family values, the 71-year-old former US Navy pilot pays warm tribute to his beautiful blonde wife, Cindy, with whom he has four children.

But there is another Mrs McCain who casts a ghostly shadow over the Senator’s presidential campaign. She is seldom seen and rarely written about, despite being mother to McCain’s three eldest children.

And yet, had events turned out differently, it would be she, rather than Cindy, who would be vying to be First Lady. She is McCain’s first wife, Carol, who was a famous beauty and a successful swimwear model when they married in 1965.

She was the woman McCain dreamed of during his long incarceration and torture in Vietnam’s infamous ‘Hanoi Hilton’ prison and the woman who faithfully stayed at home looking after the children and waiting anxiously for news.

But when McCain returned to America in 1973 to a fanfare of publicity and a handshake from Richard Nixon, he discovered his wife had been disfigured in a terrible car crash three years earlier. Her car had skidded on icy roads into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered by the impact and she suffered massive internal injuries.

When Carol was discharged from hospital after six months of life-saving surgery, the prognosis was bleak. In order to save her legs, surgeons

had been forced to cut away huge sections of shattered bone, taking with it her tall, willowy figure. She was confined to a wheelchair and was forced to use a catheter.

Through sheer hard work, Carol learned to walk again. But when John McCain came home from Vietnam, she had gained a lot of weight and bore little resemblance to her old self.

Today, she stands at just 5ft4in and still walks awkwardly, with a pronounced limp. Her body is held together by screws and metal plates and, at 70, her face is worn by wrinkles that speak of decades of silent suffering.

For nearly 30 years, Carol has maintained a dignified silence about the accident, McCain and their divorce. But last week at the bungalow where she now lives at Virginia Beach, a faded seaside resort 200 miles south of Washington, she told The Mail on Sunday how McCain divorced her in 1980 and married Cindy, 18 years his junior and the heir to an Arizona brewing fortune, just one month later.
Carol McCain had been hurt. She was no longer the blond beauty he wanted, so he cheated on her, and then dumped her for a rich beauty queen heiress he'd met while his wife was in recovery from her accident. That's not bravery under fire. That cowardice, faithlessness and greedy opportunism.

Graham: McCain Policies Extension and enhancement of Bush

Did Republican Sen. Lindsay Graham (SC) really say that a McCain presidency would just be a third term of George W. Bush? Watch the above video and find out for yourself.

John McCain Embarrassed in David Duke's Kenner, Louisiana

In the above video, John Sydney McCain, III (JiSM) bungles through one of the most awful speeches possible on the same night that Senator Barack Obama claims the Democratic nomination. The Appletree Blog says, "How bad was John McCain's speech? REAL bad!" So, watch the above video.

I can't help wondering what JiSM was doing in Kenner, Louisiana in the first place:
After spending a year in federal prison for mail fraud and tax evasion, David Duke was allowed to spend the final weeks of his sentence in a halfway house in Louisiana in April 2004. Needing employment to meet eligibility requirements, he worked for EURO (the European-American Unity and Rights Organization), his white supremacist propaganda organization.

Duke's sentence ended in mid-May 2004. To celebrate his freedom and to promote unity among white supremacist groups, EURO sponsored a conference on May 28-30 in Kenner, Louisiana, near New Orleans. Several significant neo-Nazi and racist figures attended the event, including speakers John Tyndall, founder of the British National Party; top National Alliance lieutenant Kevin Alfred Strom; Don Black, founder of the pioneering white supremacist Web site Stormfront; Willis Carto of the American Free Press and The Barnes Review; anti-Semitic attorney Edgar J. Steele; and Holocaust denier Germar Rudolf. In his own remarks, Duke urged the audience of 250 not to characterize themselves as white supremacists and racists but as devoted to the "white civil rights cause." AntiDefamationLeauge
Maybe JiSM though his speech would be so well received based on color-arousal that it's delivery made no difference.

I was one of those who initially believed that a third Clinton term would be a good idea, and that Hillary Clinton would be a shoe-in, with support from her ex-president husband. But, it turned out that Americans desperately wanted change, and so Obama will be nominated and there will be no third term of the Clinton Administration.

I can't help but think that this is a bad omen for John Sydney McCain, III (JiSM) and a good omen for America. America is simply not interested in perpetuating the policies and personages of the past this year. And the above video shows that JiSM has turned himself into a carbon copy of George W. Bush. Ever notice how carbon copies are often more emphatic than the originals themselves?



But look at the Jon Stewart send up of the above John McCain speech.



Above, here's Fox News panning the John McCain speech, saying "The oratorical gap between this speech and John McCain's speech was vast. John McCain sounded old." When Fox News pans a Republican speech, you know the guy's in trouble. "If it's a contest between speeches, Barack Obama is going to win."

Fetch My Axe Criticizes McCain "Crotch Shot" Graphic Seen Here


On Saturday, May 24, we ran a graphic here in which a yawning vagina proclaims: "John McCain called his wife a 'cunt' in public, in front of reporters. Vaginas are beautiful. John McCain is disgusting."

Photobucket

Double-click on thumbnail above
for enlarged image.


The purpose of the graphic was simply to draw attention, in the most graphic possible way, to the fact that John McCain called his wife a "cunt" in public, and no man who would do that should be president of the male and female United States.

Why Did Sen. McCain Call His Wife a "Cunt"
in Public? (original article)

However, the Fetch My Axe blog takes exception to the graphic image, saying that it offends her and may offend other women and discourage them from reading this blog. The Fetch My Axe blog says:

And so then, I go to this -other- blog, and well, first of all, do not go here during work, because halfway down the front page is a nice big pink picture of a woman's vulva.

-Why- is there a seemingly completely gratuitous crotch shot on this blog called "The Truth About McCain?" Well,
I apologize in advance for this graphic image of female anatomy, but
I just can't think of another way of dramatizing the shock I feel that
John McCain called his wife a "cunt" in public, in front of reporters.
uh. maybe think harder.

I mean, appreciate the viva la vulva sentiment and all? but, well, "shocking" is really fucking boring. Just post the damn quote, you know? -I- hadn't heard it before, it would've been plenty on its own. Really. I wasn't looking to have my bourgeois epatéd; I was looking for -useful- shit. and: JiSM? the name of your blog is "JiSM?" (John Sydney McCain, geddit?! HAW HAW) Really? god, I'd almost forgotten why I'd been avoiding all this shit for so long...

Really, though, Beavis: wtf? Who is your intended audience here, and what is it you're trying to communicate? Serious question.

also, per the euphemism:

"if you're posting the picture, you really ought to be able to type it."

it's not C$%t. It's CUNT. mkay?

He (allegedly) called his wife a cunt, as an insult, in public, for teasing him about his hair. This would make him a mean, abusive, sexist (not to even mention racist-slur-throwing and gay-baiting and...) jerk with anger management issues and a bad tendency to gratuitously alienate and repel people, even the ones that are on his side. It sort of writes itself, really. Fetch My Axe
I certainly want to be sensitive to female and male readers, and I also want to express my utter contempt for a man who would refer to his wife in this way, degrading her in front of reporters, no less. I also think that expressing utter contempt for John McCain now may be part of the recipe for defeating him at the polls in November.

I want to know what readers think, so I've placed a poll in the sidebar, particularly with respect to referring to John Sydney McCain as "JiSM". If there is an outpouring of sentiment from Democrats and Independents that this is inappropriate, then I will remove it from the top of the blog and stop including it in the text.

The second poll asks readers whether I went too far with the graphic. If Democratic and Independent readers agree that I went to far, then I will not use this graphic again at this blog for the foreseeable time being.
