The Absurdity of St. Sleazy

Clearly St. Sleazy McCain is feeling threatened by the potential primary from J.D. "the eggplant" Hayworth (yes, that's my new pet nickname for him). St. Sleazy has decided to channel his 'inner warrior' in two new radio ads:

"President Obama is leading an extreme, left wing crusade to bankrupt America. I stand in his way every day. If I get a bruise or two knocking some sense into heads in Washington, so be it. I'll keep fighting for jobs and economic growth for Arizona as long as I'm in the Senate," McCain says in one of them.

"My lot in life has been to wage war against wrong, like today's massive spending at the worst possible time," he says in the other. A narrator calls McCain "Arizona's last line of defense" against Obama's agenda and says McCain leads the charge against "ridiculously unaffordable ideas like government-run health care." Conveniently for the McCain campaign, it appears that the only place to listen to the ads, other than Arizona radio stations, is here, on the campaign's contribution-form web page.

Damn, but that's some absurdest theater! Somehow, Obama is an extremist liberal (which is news to most of us on the left) who can only be stopped by the bruised tough-guy geriatric hero, St. Sleazy himself. While I'm sure these ads will appeal to the base, to me sounds even more delusional and senile than he did during his presidential run, and that's saying something. Watch for J.D. "the eggplant" to put out even more extreme 'tough-guy' ads in response, which could be entertaining if it weren't for the sad absurdity that one of these wackos will probably end up being senator.

You'll have to fill in some blanks here. I'm not up on my Az. politics. And just how does McLame think that Obama is doing anything different on terror than Bush? And how does he think we're going to create more jobs without spending money? More tax cuts for the wealthy? Yeah we saw how well that worked with Bush and Raygoon.

"the eggplant" explained: J.D. Hayworth used to be the congressman for my district prior to the 2000 redistricting. He's a former sportscaster, now a radio talk jock, and he is, in fact, dumber than an eggplant. He can spout rightwing talking points like a parrot or a talking doll, but is a gibbering idiot if asked to actually 'think'.
I've put up a couple of posts regarding his planned primary run against McCain, because it truly scares me that he might actually win. That's how bad I think he is: I'd rather have McCain (who I hate).

It's the same in so many other places. Same old tired shit from outta their pie holes and that's plenty to get the votes from the stuipds.

Sounds like the male version of Sarah Palin.

Actually, I think Palin may be slightly (very slightly) smarter than J.D.
Yes, he is THAT dumb.
