John McCain: Fool, Loon, or Traitor? In consenting to the selection, by the Republican Invisible Hand, of Sarah Palin as candidate for Vice President, John McCain has shown that he doesn't care a thing about the United States or the world, only about himself. If John McCain wins this election, which appears to be a real possibility, there being enuf racist fools in this country to defeat Obama, and dies in office — at any point, not just within the first year or two — an utterly unfit mental midget will become President of the United States. And unlike the current mental-midget "President", a marionette who consents to have his strings pulled by his betters, Sarah Palin is a willful b*ch who shows every sign of refusing to take orders from a faceless cabal of handlers. Altho John McCain is a hothead whose temperament could prove dangerous in the White House, he is at least smart enuf, and old enuf, to listen to counsel. What does it matter to him? He just wants to be President, and to go down in history as a good, or at least adequate, President. He has no crusade to carry to the planet.

Sarah Palin, like so many stupid people, thinks herself smart, and probably smarter than the collective leadership of the Republican Party, with its collective experience of decades in politics and international affairs. She did, after all, work to oust the leaders of that very party in her home state, to boost herself, so she could become the corrupt governor (governess) herself, and feather her own nest instead of watching others feather theirs.
+
That Palin has no regard for anyone but herself (altho she could, herself, be a puppet of her husband) is shown by the fact that she accepted nomination to an office for which she is plainly, in any reasonable person's judgment, utterly unqualified. The Vice Presidency is, to her, a beauty contest, almost literally. She (and Todd) know(s) that a significant portion of the electorate, and especially the female portion, vote based on physical appearance. There are very few ugly politicians at the highest reaches of national politics anymore. Palin pursues the (Vice) Presidency solely from ego, as does McCain. Obama and Biden also are enormously, personally ambitious and egotistical people. You have to have a big ego to think yourself fit to become the most powerful person on planet Earth. Obama may have some sense of himself as a transformational candidate, given his racial composition, but the idea that he is qualified to be President of the United States is supreme egotism. Does he have a program for the planet? Not that I've heard. The entire planet is the reach of the President of the United States. That President is not a mere figurehead, Mr. or Mrs. America in a bathing suit and sash, nor even a functionary at the top of an immense bureaucracy, who need merely let the Government run pretty much on the autopilot of the Permanent Government. The President of the United States, by his (or her) character, is called to very high purpose. Acting or refusing to act makes a difference. Think Rwanda. Think Darfur.
+
Ruthless, vile people in places like Moscow, Beijing, Khartoum, and Jerusalem have no hesitancy to do horrible things to millions of people, and to test the will and intelligence of any President of the United States. It is inconceivable that such people in such capitals have high regard for Sarah Palin's intelligence. It is likely that they see her as more quixotic and reckless than courageous and resolute. They are sure they can bamboozle her, especially if she does not take orders as well as Dumbya does. They are certain they can use her arrogance against her, to lead her to missteps of potentially catastrophic nature and extent. They can feint and insult, and see her attack the wrong targets, in petulance, while they move strategically elsewhere. They know that the world is not going to be charmed by Wasilla Bambi, and that the rise of such a preposterous litewate will cause much of the world to look upon the United States as a witless, feckless world-power has-been. Such drastic diminution of American prestige would delite them, because when people look for leadership in world affairs, they are not going to turn their eyes to Mooseguts Barbie. Russia is not a helpless wildlife creature. It can defend itself and shoot back. In a showdown between Miss Congeniality and the Butchers of Beijing, who do you think will prevail?
+
So John McCain consented to have this vile, stupid woman thrust upon him by the Republican Invisible Hand, knowing that if she were actually to rise to the Presidency, the United States would have so bad a time of it until the next election that we might even see ourselves tested in dozens of probes all around the planet. Communist China might call in its chips, those hundreds of billions of dollars of Treasury bonds it has bought, if it moved against Taiwan and the Invisible Hand acted to counter that aggression, using Palin's arrogance and bravado in a useless attempt to intimidate people who have real strength of will, backed by real intelligence.
+
How could McCain do that to us? Because, you see, the only way the Brunette Bimbette could become President is if he is utterly incapacitated or dead, and he doesn't give a f(asteris)k what happens to us once he's dead. It's all about him, so he's perfectly content to leave us with a President who could be a catastrophe to the Nation. Yet none dare call it treason.
+
John McCain cannot really mean the crazy things he has said about being proud of Palin and being absolutely confident that she could handle the job of President brilliantly — unless he really is insane, because such a belief would be more than foolish. It would be delusional.
+
So is McCain a fool, a loon, or a traitor? He could be all three.
+
U-Cid. I believe that Usama bin Laden has been dead for years, probably buried deep in some cave where his body will never be found. Indeed, there may be so few, closed-mouthed people who know where the body is buried that not even significant numbers of people in Al-Qaeda know that he is dead.
+
A dead Usama, however, is of no use to the movement. It is the idea that he is still out there somewhere, lurking, planning, plotting, successfully evading and confounding "the world's sole superpower", and thus making us look powerless and stupid for not being able to find him, much less kill him, that gives Al-Qaeda almost magical power in the imagination of potential recruits. If it became plain that the reason the U.S. can't find nor kill bin Laden is that he's already dead and buried, that would harm the morale of the movement. That made me think, today, of a trick that, according to the Hollywood movie El Cid, the Spanish pulled on the Moors in the fite to force their Arab conquerors out of Spain. The Spanish leader had been killed in battle, but the Spaniards dared not let that fact become known to either their own forces or the Moors. So they propped El Cid's body up on his warhorse and sent it out to lead a charge that broke the Moorish line. I don't know that that ever really happened, but even if El Cid did not really free Spain from the Moors in 1099, Al-Qaeda may be using a dead Usama bin Laden to lead a movement working to destroy the power of the West in 2008.
+
John McCain claims to have a plan to capture bin Laden. (Keith Olbermann quite rightly asks why the bastard doesn't tell the present Administration what it is, and wonders if he willl share it with Obama if he does not himself win the Presidency — yet another proof that McCain doesn't care a thing for us.) Does that plan work as well on a corpse as on a live person? Or does it rely upon a live person falling into a trap? Dead men are never deceived. The same cannot be said for voters.
+
(The current U.S. military death toll in Iraq, according to the website "Iraq Coalition Casualties", is 4,189 — for Israel.)
