Was John McCain brainwashed by his communist captors during
his POW years at the Hanoi Hilton?
Did they hypnotize him, anticipating the future emergence of
some triggering words -- such as �Wall Street market meltdown� -- to suddenly
turn a lifelong crusader for deregulation and privatization into a firebrand
raging against capitalist greed?
Desperate to gain traction for his failing campaign, he�s
gone absurdly opportunistic. Judging by his new rhetoric, you�d half expect him
to lead an angry mob bearing pitchforks and flaming torches against the New
York Stock Exchange.
Yeah, the leading revolutionaries of modern times: Ho Chi
Minh, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro . . . and Bushclone McSame!
Like an increasing number of the rest of you, I personally
feel that popular, democratic takeovers of Monopoly�s plundering entities,
which have destroyed so many lives in America and elsewhere, are fully
warranted. Only people-before-profits priorities can save this country.
But McCain is totally bogus. He flip-flops worse than a kid
wearing rubber sandals running across an empty parking lot.
Honor comes from honesty, and our dear nation can�t survive
another hugely dishonorable
Who does Big Bad John think he�s fooling?
His manipulative masquerade is more transparent than Lake
Erie water after zebra mussels did their filtering thing.
What�s that I see?
It�s Karl Marx�s ghost, laughing his ass off!
