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.
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.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.
-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, butuh. maybe think harder.
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.
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 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.
