Early short/short version.
Probably a longer cut later, but for now, this quick-n-dirty on what was happening on “This Week” as Villager Squirtgun
Lil' George Stephanopoulos
interviewed the world's oldest Top Gun.
McCain really did just ping-pong wildly around with the most ghastly leer Jack-O-Lanterned into his face; hopefully C&L will have some video up because you really have to see it to appreciate how unhinged he came across. Chuckling, getting shit just flat out wrong, all but saying that government-run health care sucks because...uh...I was tortured by the North Vietnamese 40 years ago.
My friend. hehehe.
McCain: I’ll find you a hundred billion dollars tomorrow. Is there any American who doesn’t believe that you can save hundreds of billions of dollars from Waste, Fraud and Abuse.
Stephanopoulos: Yes but by every estimate the waste/fraud stuff adds up to 12-16 billion. All the rest are earmarks for things like aid to Israel and Military Housing.
Stephanopoulos: So are you cutting aid to Israel?
McCain: Of course not.
Stephanopoulos: Military housing?
Stephanopoulos: The math dictates that you would have to cut 30% across the board to make your numbers. Are you going to cut 30% across the board?
McCain: No. Instead I’m going to “change the way we do business” in Washington in a mystical, unexplainable way that will cause government to magically shrink!
No kidding. I really had no idea of the scale of McCain's crackpottery until I saw grandpa mix his meds this morning and come on charging at every question like a coke-horny aluminum-siding-salesman frantic to close that fucking deal!
Then, from her privileged perch high atop the Secrets of the Human Heart, Cokie Roberts lead the panel in defending 'Lil George showing his ass back-hair-to-knee-dimple on national teevee last week by striking up a rousing chorus of
"What Do the Simple Folk Do?"
Explaining that, "People are fucking morons. They don’t understand the “Constitution”. The people don’t vote for President on issues. They vote for President on a gut check. These questions were fair because that’s what people want!"
