Entry: Lest We Forget Sunday, September 21, 2008

 

It's not really my style, and it's sort of a cheap shot, I suppose, but what with the election becoming closer than it should be (except, perhaps, on Bizarro World), I think it bears mentioning that John McCain is on record for unapologetically referring to his Vietnamese captors as "gooks".  Now, of course, our reaction to this must be tempered by a consideration of how it was meant, and so on, but, in the final analysis, this is what is technically referred to as a Bad Thing.

Or: Dude, come on.

While racism of any type or degree is usually supposed to be an occasion for hand-wringing and self-flagellation, I can't deny that this fact gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, insofar as it may cause a whole segment of our population to conclude that John McCain is icky.  (Oh, and has everyone forgotten the Keating Five?)

Okay, so I have officially gone down the Low Road.  I feel dirty, but optimistic.  How are you?

McCain is nutjob. Unfortunately, there are millions of dittoheads that will vote for the McCain/Palin ticket this election.
