McCain's IED

John McCain's appearence on the Daily Show was a watershed of sorts—in 10 or so interviews Jon Stewart has "evolved" from cuddling up to the senator to ambushing him with his own talking points. He has the studio audience on his side and only needs to throw out a cliché to get them whooping. (He makes one analogy about a house with no doors that makes zero sense, and it gets an ovation.)

Stewart's partisan "defense" of Reid is pathetic in its transparency. If Reid came out and said the sky was green we'd see Jon accusing Republican of smear tactics for calling Reid a loon.

He peppers McCain with ill-formed questions, and then before McCain can adequately address any of them he switches to another set-up. And whenever McCain is about to make a good point, he just interrupts him with a joke and jumps to another topic. Now I want to vote for him.

Here's the video.

i suppose you thought john mccain's "joke" about
IEDs was funny. yeah its really f*ckin clever. too bad IEDs are the number one killer of americans in iraq. that shows how in touch with the troops john mccain is.

you are a moron. republicans are out of touch elitists, they're all rich and they don't give a flying f*@k about the rest of us. they give tax cuts to the super rich, and send thousands of americans to be maimed and die. and they spread this propoganda bullshit about democrats not "understanding the threat of terroism", when its the republicans who thought we could lessen terrorism by invading a country that didnt harbor any fucking terrorists, had no nuclear weapons, and wasnt a threat.

so why dont u wipe that smug "know it all" expression of your ugly face.

get a grip on reality and stop worshipping rich out of touch assholes that care mor about their own power, than the future of our country.

p.s. - its people like u that vote for people like george w. bush, who are RUINING AMERICA

wow, and we wonder why democrats have trouble winning elections

i do not always agree with was mAc says, in fact he and i debate often over AIM (i know him IRL) but the fact of the matter is that this is not mindless talking points, rather he puts together intelligent arguments. Why don't you try to do the same

yeah, he makes logical arguments.....about some guy on comedy central!

who the fuck cares about what jon stewart says. thats whats weird about all of these bloggers, radio hosts, and pundits, all they do is pile on liberals and people that are trying to discuss real issues. they never seem to make any political points.

the atmosphere in politics is so toxic. instead of debating them on issues, people in the right wing are questioning peoples MOTIVES and their lifestyle.

haven't either of you noticed that we never really hear any debate anymore? no weighing of risks and benefits.

here ill make another point. republicans are hypocrits. they say they're good on terrorism, and then the leader of their party, the president, decides to needlessly invade another country, greatly weakening our position.
they say theyre conservative but george bush has run up the biggest deficit in history.
george bush says democrats dont support the troop, while at the same time he uses them as pawns to make democrats look bad.

and by the way george bush is just running out the clock until he can hand iraq off to the next president.

there i made a couple points (i could make a lot more, but ill spare you)

p.s. what the hell does what i have to say have to do with democrats winning elections? why do I speak for democrats? im only speaking for myself.

p.p.s - if I recall democrats did pretty good in the recent midterm elections. if i recall correctly, they didn't lose a single seat. hmm...

p.p.p.s.- a cult from texas is basically who is running our great country. food for thought

also, republicans want to divide and conquer, while democrats are willing to come up with a solution that everyone can agree on.

why cant our elected officials stop bickering and accusing, and come to some agreement, because this country isnt as divided as a lot of people would like us to think.

i think we probably have more in common, and more common goals, than we have differences.
tactics out of mind.
