Not only is John McCain a liar, he’s also a moron.

And here he is today, claiming that the economy is “strong.”

Damn straight he doesn’t know much about the economy.

John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar. John McCain is a liar.

Oh, and John McCain? He’s a liar.

Reason #101

From The Curvature comes a great analysis of Sarah Palin’s involvement in charging rape victims in Wasilla for their own rape investigations, and her subsequent lying about that involvement:

You’ve probably read just about everywhere by now that while Sarah Palin was mayor of Wasilla, the city billed rape victims the $1200 fee for their rape kits. Of course, Palin has tried to sidestep the question and insinuate that she had nothing, nothing at all, to do with this mess. This was clearly bullshit from day one, since the mayor of such a small town (my town is tiny and still has 2,500 more people in it than Wasilla) really has no excuse for not knowing what the fuck is going on in it.

(emphasis mine) 

As I’ve noted before, Wasilla is the same size as Bumpass, Virginia. One would assume that the mayor of such a tiny town would know what was going on there.

Considering that fact, it was already clear that Sarah Palin was lying about her involvement in charging rape victims for their rape kits (in case you’ve never heard of them, a rape kit is a kit used to collect evidence for prosecution after a sexual assault), but now we have proof. There is now a paper trail proving that Sarah Palin actively signed off on the switch from having the town cover rape investigations to the new policy of charging victims, and her claims to the contrary are outright lies.

Unfortunately, I don’t think a lot of men in politics understand what a big deal this could be for women voters (yep, even evangelical women).  I am afraid men who understand that John McCain=FAIL will miss an opportunity on this issue, because they don’t understand how visceral women’s feelings about sexual violence are.  This decision by Sarah Palin speaks to a lack of empathy on her part–it takes away from her false image as a woman “just like us,” and shows her to be quite a bit nastier than most women would be.  Further, the fact that she is lying about her involvement in this decision speaks even more to the fact that she and John McCain are liars. I hope people don’t stop talking about this.

John McCain is a liar, and he’s gotten away with it for too long.  It’s time we show him that treating the American people with this kind of disrespect will not be tolerated.  Our leaders need to be trustworthy and honest.  We can’t go through another four or eight years never knowing when our President is telling us the truth.  Forward this video widely.  It’s important.

Filed under: Liar,Racist,War and Peace — 300reasons @ 2:02 am

This video is a bit slow-moving (classical music and text just seem to make a video drag, y’know?) but it makes its point well.

The end of the video, in which McCain admits that he changed his stance on the confederate flag “for ambition” is the most honest I’ve ever seen him. After following all things McCain for a couple of months and researching his past, he seems to me to be someone so driven by ambition and a need for recognition that he has completely lost his ethical bearings. I don’t know that he even has an actual agenda for the presidency, or any firmly held beliefs. He simply wants to be seen by others as powerful.

Reason #82

Filed under: Aboriginal Rights,Liar,The Environment — 300reasons @ 1:46 am

Pardon me, Mr. McCain. It seems your pants are on fire.

Say it with me now: “Straight talk my ass!”

Two days ago John McCain flip-flopped on his previous position against offshore drilling. Today, he is flipping on his previous opposition to drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

What’s the trouble with his new stance? Well, first of all, drilling pretty much always carries a risk of contaminating the surrounding environment. In the case of offshore drilling, there is a risk of an oil spill polluting the water. In ANWR, a spill would not only damage wildlife, but destroy the hunting grounds of Native American Indians, who rely on the area for basic sustenance.

Beyond the inherent risks to drilling, McCain’s stance ignores the overwhelming environmental and economic disaster we are about to face if we don’t get our act together and find alternative energy sources. This is very simple: we are going to run out of oil. If we don’t have another form of fuel available by the time the shortages get really bad, there will be (more) wars. This is what happens when there is not enough of a vital natural resource to go around. Basic knowledge of history tells us that. And then there is the problem of global warming, which really does have the capacity to end human life as we know it if we’re not careful. By focusing on extracting every last thimblefull of oil, McCain’s approach completely neglects the real problem, which is our need for alternative energy sources that don’t put carbon into the atmosphere.

Putting aside the basic ethical questions that arise when McCain flips on virtually every issue, his new stance is much worse than his previous stance, and makes his potential presidency a danger to the environment and aboriginal rights.

McCain really has a problem with the whole concept of video.

Here he is, contradicting his own position on Social Security. In 2004, he called for privatization. Now he’s claiming he never did. So is he senile or lying?

Reason #60

Filed under: Asshole,Katrina,Liar — 300reasons @ 2:32 am

Talking Points Memo reports that Grampy McSame has been caught in yet another fib…

During his press conference today in Baton Rouge, John McCain declared in strong terms that he’s voted for every investigation of Hurricane Katrina.

The only problem, as the DNC has been pointing out to reporters, is he voted twice against Democratic proposals to investigate the levee failures.

(Full story and video of McCain lying is here)

I guess it’s not a big deal though, because, you know, Brownee did a heckuva job and stuff. From what I hear, everything turned out for the best.

Say, does anyone remember where McCain was when Katrina hit? Hmmmm…. Oh yeah!

I hope the cake was good.
