All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

The Rumors of His Death...

Before the vote actually took place it was predicted by the "experts" that the race was over, McCain would be the nominee. Romney was dead, in the true sense of Mark Twain's famous quote: "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Despite all the talk McCain is just over the halfway mark in the delegate count with many states that favor Romney coming up. The truth about McCain's record is making its way through the media filter whose effort to protect Mr. Straight Talk can only be called sickening. Not unlike the journalists of the early 60's who chuckled and snickered, but never revealed to the public JFK's hotel trysts with stars amd young tarts and midnights in the Whitehouse pool, today's fawning group of journalists have hidden McCain's mania, his anger, his fury and his erratic speech and behavior patterns from a public that deserves to know the truth about McCain's personality, his record and fury at being rejected by the voters in 2000. His arrogant dismissal of his opponents and his critics, his love for the opposition party and their views, and his partnering with the Democrats to hurt his own party are more than enough to justify his rejection again in 2008. The McCain/Huckabee stunt in West Virginia and his record should tell you all you need to know. McCain's deperation to win at any cost are reason enough for him to be rejected for POTUS.
