I feel the same way, but I won't show disrespect by making old man shits his pants jokes.
And I agree with you. Those are unncessary and irrelevant and disrespectful. As I have said to fellow progressives in the past, you should learn that sometimes you do more to help your cause by learning to shut the hell up. I personally believe that most (not all) progressive policies can be defended and supported on a factual basis or at least through reason and logic. Juvenile insults just make your cause look hollow and tarnish your allies.
If he did shit his pants it wouldnt be because he was old but because he just lost his beloved town hall meeting he has sought for so long.
McCain left to call Mitt Romney to see if he would agree to replace Palin on the ticket.
By the way, to my fellow Obama supporters, let the "that one" comment die. It's silly. Just I have defended comments made by progressives, whether it is Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comment, or people trying to manipulate something Joe Biden said about coal plants in America, this is a simple off-hand comment that I don't believe had any deeper meaning than McCain saying guess which candidate voted for it, that one. He just didn't say the "guess which candidate" part. Reading racial or dismissiveness into it is reaching. I did notice the not shaking hands at the end, and body language tells me there is a certain amount of disdain toward Obama by McCain, but in all honesty, that doesn't matter nearly as much as the issues and it's just speculation. Speculation wasted on unimportant matters. Don't waste time on this progressives.
This however, is an acceptable piece of humor at McCain's expense in my opinion.
I agree wholly. There are several progressive issues that I could get behind.
Now that's funny.
Would you feel comfortable with Sarah Palin as President of the United States? Do you think she is qualified? Do you think McCain put the country 1st by choosing her or do you think he chose her sorely just to lure in those Hillary Clinton female votes?
