This Could Be Explosive...

You probably know, John McCain scares the puddin' outta me. We've all heard stories of his short-tempered, foul-mouthed, near out-of-control tantrums. Like Hillary rifling ashtrays at her philandering husband, is this the sort of behavior we want in charge of "the football"?

Still, six years as a P.O.W. commands our respect and should make us all consider what we would have done under the same circumstances...
Could I have handled that stress?
I'm glad I'll probably never know the answer to that question.

But now there are rumbles in the distance about that story. I'm at once repulsed and fascinated by the possibility that new information may be emerging about McCain's six years in the "Hanoi Hilton".
Take a close look at Andrea's post and the comments that follow. Similar to the just-prior-to-election revelation of GWB's drunk driving arrest, this makes me feel VERY uncomfortable...
Sleazy politics?

But there is a great deal of "smoke" out there, and we need to be sure there'll be no fire appearing in the future.
If you have time, why not check out the BlogTalkRadio links at Andrea's blog, tune in, and participate in the chat during the show? As voters, it's our responsibility to be as informed on this subject as we can possibly be!
I hope to join ya in the chatroom tomorrow night at 9 P.M. Eastern time.



Thx, GB

Nasty story that one. Politics is one thing but this is going beyond acceptable mud slinging. I wouldn't put this sort of stuff past the Clinton Cartel which is damned scary. In short form, if the story is true we need proof and substantial proof not just "deep throat" rumblings with nothing to back it up. If it's not true then every bastard in the chain needs to be hunted out and publicly gutted. This sickens me

This election is immensely frustrating.

We are again faced with no clear choices.

Was it always like this?

Having been a voter for less than twenty years I don't feel like I have ever had a 'hero' to elect.

Moving to Illinois in the mid-90s has pretty much meant that voting in a Presidential race is pointless anyway. Our electors will be given to whomever survives the Democratic convention, as has been tradition for time immemorial.

If McCain gets the nod I will vote for him. If he doesn't I will write-in Ronald Reagan.
