Commodore McSame



Goes for a little digital penetration.

From the Alley Insider and not the AP:

Obama, McCain Debate Via Twitter: How To Follow Along
Peter Kafka | June 20, 2008

Want to know what Barack Obama thinks about net neutrality? John McCain's views on white space spectrum? Good luck learning about that during any of this fall's official debates. But we're reasonably sure these and other issues will come up via a semi-formal debate the two campaigns are starting up today -- via Twitter.

Here are the pretty loose ground rules for the event, organized by Andrew Rasiej's Personal Democracy Forum: Sometime today, moderator Ana Marie Cox will start lobbing questions to two officially sanctioned stand-ins for the rival campaigns -- Mike Nelson, who's advising the Obama campaign on tech issues, and Liz Mair, online communcations director for the Republican National Committee.

The debate is supposed to focus exclusively on tech, so if you're looking for arguments about Iraq or campaign financing, you're going to be disappointed. But since it's completely in the hands of Ana Marie, best known as the original Wonkette, we're betting it's going to be quite lively.


Lively?

I dunno.

Senator Obama’s overall campaign, staff of evildoers and Twitter page,

all seem to suggest a genuine grasp of technology and its implications.


Whereas Commodore McSame’s seems a trifle, um,

Dossy.

McStain could be in trouble, every time someone comes up with a fucking ten year old who could explain how to turn on a computer in terms he could understand, they get renditioned to Cheneys BBQ pit.

For god's sake, or bhudda's sake or any OTHER religious icon, McCain is NOT the issue.

Those who support him, are.

And white people hate Obama, in that little 23%.

And we the people, need to pummel them, strike them down on every site, in every place, in real time, in our lives.

Like Drifty posted: "THIS IS OUR STREET CORNER!"

We need to shame them, blame them, and hold them accountable for the pure FUCKERY they have foisted upon the human race, in their sick ass attempt to control it all. 30 years or more of their fuckery.

We need to really start to haul out the big ammo of our rhetorics and make sure Congress hears us, and the MSM hears us, and the places we shop hear us.

We the people ain't GOT much money left, so our final bucks SHOULD be played to those who really WANT our business based on our political ideals.

Life is simple, dont' fuck it up.

Harumph.

larue - y'know "get whitey" has as much appeal as "it's the jews".

We don't all have horns and a tail just like you ain't all rapists.

Calling bullshit!

MeCain's computer is a dual 360KB floppy AT or an Apple II. Top of the line in 1986. Low mileage. No modem.

C:\WINDOWS? Wazzat?

A:\> Insert Disk 2

He's the ONLY Icon allowed!

Hey Anon, who are you?

I said the 23% WHITEY folks, who have NOTHING to offer this planet as they have plainly proved for 30 years and longer before that.

You know, the one's who turned out for the hangings in the town squares and took photos for penny postcards to send to their friends in other counties.

And that was up thru the 50's and 60's!!!

So don't lecture ME about tolerance, or white folks. There's a PURE HATE population out there, and they serve our planet NO JUST CAUSE.

I don't think it's out of hand to label them as such, and make sure they are outed, exposed, and run off to some Devils Island where they SHOULD be.

And trying to make me out in the analogy like someone persecuting the Jews pretty much spells out YOUR place in the rainbow of life . . . yer in the non-color part of that spectrum. And yer tail is spiked and your breath is foul and your heart is dark with evil.

Harumph.

Is anyone counting how many times mcbush throws himself under the bus?

I lost count. *blush*

McCain is a CP/M man, through and through.

WereBear said...

I think this is a valid criticism of McCain.

He's not in touch with the world as it is today.

This is just one clue.

I don't think McSame was a commodore. Nor do I believe he could actually operate a Commodore 64. Or an Apple II. He strikes me as somebody who has trouble getting the air conditioning in his Cadillac to work right.

Batocchio said...

Well played, drifty! Although as others have noted, McCain never learned how to operate a Commodore, either.
