Dependable Erection

Number 1 with a bullet

Just about every national blogger i read on a daily basis has this on their front page in the last hour or so. But in case you missed it, do yourself a favor and watch it.

Then think about whether or not John McCain is even marginally worth considering to be your president.

After you get done laughing.



  • That's pretty nice.

    Boring commentary follows:

    For me, the video had a perfect balance of production quality and informality. Kind of like the "when I grow up" ads of some years ago, (or their spoofs for the advertising industry:

  • Again, no president can decide that troops will be anywhere for 100 years. None of the candidates are committed to anything like a withdrawal. No matter who gets elected, there will be US bases in Iraq for the foreseeable future.

    None of the clowns want out.

    By Blogger DurhamFood, at 5:03 PM  

  • Considering that we had bases in the Philippines for just about exactly 100 years and have had bases in Germany, Japan and Korea for 63 years, John McCain is simply telling the truth. Count on us being the former Yugoslavia for a considerable period of time too. That was BJC's war if you recall.

    Of course, the Dems won't be satisfied until a picture like this one in on the front page of the paper.

  • John McCain is one scary ol' dude. "I don't think Americans are concerned if we're there 10,000 years?"


    Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran?

    Talk about being out of touch with the American people. Sheesh.

    I'm sending this link far and wide. People need to see this tired old dinosaur for what he is.

  • Okay, Barry, this has gone on long enough.

    Your creation of the alter ego "Locomotive Breath" was funny for a good long while, and provided a lot of fodder for the comment section, but come on, do you really expect us to believe that anyone would believe the complete horseshit listed under "LB"'s handle above? You're really stretching credulity now.

  • come to think of it, you've never seen us in the same room at the same time, have you?

    btw - anyone recall when Republicans were satisfied with this headline?

    I guess if they hadn't been satisfied, we might not have seen this on the front pages, no?

  • scooter left this comment in response to a post i wrote about strict partisanship voting:

    "As for Iraq... No matter what the Democrats say, we simply cannot leave Iraq in any destabilizing manner. That means gradual troop decreases over years. Quite frankly, a sixty day removal of the bulk of troops from Iraq is a lie. If anything, all of the troops removed from Iraq will find their way to Kuwait, Turkey, Jordan, or Saudi Arabia. We are never leaving the region in either of our lifetimes."

    i think this is going to be the case, regardless of which party wins the election.

  • hovercraft must be living some alternate history. The historical information is exactly factually correct. And if we bail out of Iraq, we'll have exactly the same photo from the U.S. embassy there. John Murtha and his ilk will celebrate.

    If you think there's been bloodshed in Iraq just wait. Or do I have to remind you what happened in Vietnam. Ah what the hell, gooks & towelheads killing each other. Who cares.
    Why is this relevant to the situation today?

    Clandestine, foreign government, and media reports indicate bin Laden since 1997 has wanted to conduct terrorist attacks in the US. Bin Laden implied in U.S. television interviews in 1997 and 1998 that his followers would follow the example of World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef and "bring the fighting to America."

    Basic math: 1997 < 2000

    Too bad feckless BJC didn't kill Bin Laden when he had the chance. But he didn't have the balls. Probably because they were in Monica's mouth. Much easier to get his rocks off while doing nothing and punt the problem to the next administration.

    More basic math: 8 months < 8 years

    In other news, a bear expressed the intent to crap in the woods and the Pope plans to say Mass. Hey Barry, I'm expressing the intent to send a hit squad to Durham. You don't know when, you don't know where, and you don't know the target and you can't get to me 'cause I'm in a foreign country. Go ahead and act on that information.

    (For the all too literal minded readers of this blog, I'm not going to hurt anyone)

  • I suppose if the goal of US foreign policy is to destabilize Kuwait, Turkey, Jordan, or Saudi Arabia, then yeah, redeploying combat forces to those countries might be seen as a good idea.

    By Blogger Barry Ragin, at 8:56 AM  

  • Jethro Tool,

    "bailing out" of an illegal occupation sounds like a wise idea to me.

    p.s. we engaged in Vietnam under lies and false pretense also.

    - Just like little kids who get caught in lies, their first instinct is self-protection by weaving their fable with even more lies.

    At some point, karmic justice will have its way. I fear the spiritual reprisal coming our way.

  • Breathy, breathy, breathy. Now I know you're just a liberal who's trying to get all our goats.

    See, the whole thing about the Iraq misadventure was based on a lie. Which was then zealously prosecuted by a rougue commander while the rest of the community let him run roughshod over justice and truth.

    Seems to me you're all about calling bullshit on that in other contexts, no?

    And before you start, Congress had access to the same intelligence reports as the President.

  • ...uh, right, which part of "the rest of the community let him run roughshod over justice and truth" didn't you understand, LB? We're in violent agreement there.

    Nice WMDs, by the way.

    By Blogger hovercraft, at 8:20 PM  

  • I agree the Dems are a bunch of pussies for not voting the way they wanted to and damn the consequences at the ballot box. Either that or they vote the way they do because, despite their public protestations to the contrary, they understand the threat and know the President's right. Either way, not the people you want running the country.

    And it's telling that "all the blogs I read on a daily basis" are moving in lockstep. Step outside your comfort zone. I do, in case you haven't noticed.

  • You're a crazy beautiful dreamer, lady. I love you so bad.
