Looks like McCain is caught between a rock and a hard spot. Ginny

Loved the rude hosts!!!! What a perfectly irritable old geezer he was to them.

anon 4:10 you crack me up!

Decorina said...

Yes! He must have thought that the ladies on the View were going to be properly deferential and respectful to him given his experience with other wimmmen that truly know their place. Like Cindy and McPalin. LOL anon 4:10, and thanks to anon 3:47 for the set up, it is priceless, no???

McCain handled those awful hags with patience and great aplomb. Barbara was atrociously rude and didn't let McCain even finish his answers. I don't care how much you disagree with the candidate, but show him a modicum of respect. Of course, when Obama was on, the incredible fawning, and the number of "softball questions" was amazing. This, of course, after, Joy Behar kept telling Barack that she thought he was "hot". I'll take someone with substance and experience over that Obama hack anyday. Oh, by the way, why didn't the View ask Obama about Ayers and why was Whoppi and Barbara constantly defending him over his ridiculously racist and anti-American pastor. Obama is a baby, and McCain is a man. GO McCain/Palin!

anon 4:21: I agree! Palin has that experience! And McCain, by picking her, showed his wisdom!

And "The View" is an excellent source for political information too! I hate complicated things like "voting records"--ewww.

Oh, I agree. Those women were SO RUDE to him.

John McCain is NEVER rude, so he didn't deserve that treatment at all.

Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

The "trollop" remark is as disturbing as the use of "cunt."

Wisdom? Picking Palin? Oh dear...he picked a woman that is telling me my daughter is a second class citizen and wants to ban books from the library that don't agree with her narrow views. She's fine for a limited few but good god....not this old Repubican woman. Ginny

Ginny honey, it's called sarcasm.

Anon 4:56....I got it!! I wasn't referencing the "wisdom" post(loved it). I was blabbing about McC.s dumb ass pick. Ginny

I wouldn't vote for her husband if my life depended on it, but I have a little bit of admiration for Cindy McCain. She found Washington distasteful years ago, and she stayed home to raise her kids, run her company, and do charity work. I have to admire that.

As for the ladies of The View, Anon347, when was the last time anything about an American presidential election approached respect? McCain's TV spots have been appallingly combatative and breathtakingly inaccurate. And you're upset by the way Joy Behar behaves?

Vote republican and go back to sleep. Hopefully there will be something left of the USA when you wake up.

hello gorgeous said...

Anons 3:47 pm and 4:21 pm: I am guessing you are the same person and while I do not watch The View because they are all hags, if McCain wins, I promise I will hunt you down and kick your ass.

I have the ability now, thanks to G. Bush and The Patriot Act.

Anonymous said...

I can see it now, Palin gets her chance to move to Washington with her hillbilly clan & the next thing you know there's a rusty Camaro on concrete blocks on the White House lawn.
We must keep those republican fucks the fuck out of the White House.

hello gorgeous, I love you more with each post.

Love,
Your Secret Gay Heartthrob

I would respect Palin if she had a rusty Camaro.

I don't think she is colorful at all though. I think she'll turn out to be brittle and bossy and two-dimensional, with a third-rate mind.

eM said...

i just don;t give a flying fuck anymore

now that i know that the huzbinator's company will happily transfer our asses to zurich - i am looking forward to chocolate and hot ski instructors - maybe even hot chocolate ski instructors

hello gorgeous said...

I love you, too, SGH.

Now, I am off to the Delaware for Obama campaign kickoff.

I am not taking this election sitting down.

Decorina said...

Yah, McPalin is going to be in Denver on Monday. I'm going to show up outside - and wave a sign.

Got my 2 bumperstickers yesterday. My husband put his on his car. Says McBush, Mission Continued.

And I watched Sarah last night with Charles Gibson. She is in so far over her head - almost painful to watch. But hey, Shrub has set an excellent example of how a third rate mind can party with the big boys.

So sad to see the US made a laughingstock around the world.

Anonymous said...

pray for an indictment for Sarah

Decorina said...

We can only hope that her karma runs over her dogma.

CamilleC said...

I don't think they were rude to him. If he would just answer a question. Gosh politicians are such special creatures. Even the "down to earth" (not my quote) Palin kind of turned into one in her interview on ABC. "They" are training her well. And yes, I'll say it - Obama gets on my nerves to when he doesn't answer questions. I hate that but it doesn't look like that's ever going to change. And so if politicians keep evading questions, more power to the poeple who keep prodding and poking - across the board.

hello gorgeous...

Lovie, please get yourself in fighting shape. I'll kick your prissy ass anyday. It's going to be sooo satisfying when the Republicans win yet again (the Dems really know how to screw up an election). Please come and find me. Can't wait, sweetie.

RRRRrrr. Fssst. Fssst.
(that is my cat fight sound effect...sounds better in person)
Getting nasty in here.

anon 11:02, I'm glad the Douchebag Community (or "People of Douche") are responding so well to the Republican ticket. Then again, they always do.

(what's up with the "lovie" and "sweetie"? Are you an elderly Auntie Mame impersonator?)

Anonymous said...

The hosts should be considered true partiots - they did that which the MSM could not do because they'be been muzzled by the McCain Mafia.

L said...

Cindy looks like a Barbie Doll and would have more credibility if she dress so "uppity' and wore a wig.

hello gorgeous said...

Okay, McAnon, are you actually proud of the condition the current administration has left our country in? It is clear to me that you have no understanding of the damage done. Maybe we can all chip in to buy you a newspaper subscription.

This administration in eight years has undermined our credibility globally by starting a war under false pretenses, killing not only thousands of our own soldiers (or "Troops" as they like to call them so you will forget they are merely boys), hundreds of thousands of Iraqis if you believe the data from Johns Hopkins, at a total estimated (all-done, all-through) cost of $2.7 trillion. Trillion. And this is according to the Congressional Budget Office*, not some Democrats in a smoke-filled room, as you are wont to think, I am sure.

Homes are being foreclosed upon at a rate never before seen in this country - worse than the Great Depression. Do you comprehend the implications of the Fed having to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

We are on the brink of global financial ruin, McAnon. Banks are closing. Iconic financial institutions are going down: Merrill Lynch, AIG, Washington Mutual, Lehman Bros. – are all near collapse.

Russia has ships closing in on Venezuela because Venezuela has what? Come on. I know you can do it. Oil? That’s right, oil. Just like Georgia. And our military is in no position to help defend anyone, not that we would defend Venezuela but Bushy wants that oil, too, and doesn't want Russia to have it.

Our military is beyond frayed. Did you see the article yesterday that the Army is trying to figure out how to lower the RECORD NUMBER of suicides in the military. Um, let’s think. Maybe QUIT DEPLOYING THEM TO THE SAME GOD-FORSAKEN PLACE 5 TIMES! (Yes, I am YELLING!) And maybe provide them some care once they are done serving our country, as Obama supports and the current administration VETOED and has planned for even more VA funding cuts for ’09. This is for the guys who are fighting his war!

And you’re proud of this?

Oh yeah, the gloves are off.

And it’s lovey, fuckwad.


[*The cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could total $2.4 trillion through the next decade, or nearly $8,000 per man, woman and child in the country, according to a Congressional Budget Office estimate released in ’07. A previous CBO estimate put the wars' costs at more than $1.6 trillion. This one adds $705 billion in interest, taking into account that the conflicts are being funded with borrowed money.]

anon 11:02 can't cope with "issues" and "data" and "the future."

It can only do things like call McCain a "perfect gentleman," and threaten to "kick your prissy ass."

Republican debating at its best.

hello gorgeous said...

Well, my ass might be a little prissy. Ha.

(Although I do have a lot of power tools, McAnon, so beware.)

I see that I misphrased the Russia-Venezuela thing implying Russia wants its (V's) oil when in fact the real worry is that they are both toying with, and taunting, us. And then what are we prepared to do? Play chess?

Anyway, I know. You're right, anon lovey, you can't have a debate on the issues with a Repub because they don't really even know the issues. They listen to Rush Limbaugh and just nod and laugh at everything he says, thus the insulting (only they don't realize it) moniker, "dittoheads."

I'd like to know just one thing, McAnon. Name one thing. ONE. Just one thing that Bush has accomplished in his 8 years as President that you are proud of. One.

amymezzell said...

hello gorgeous - I don't know who you are, but you are definitely my favorite person these days. You've got a fan in Birmingham! I just wish everyone could read a newspaper like you mentioned to learn real facts, but you know - No Child Left Behind...pretty soon, no American children will be able to read because of the deterioration of the public school system, and McCain is preparing to continue this trend. Yay!

Anonymous said...

Decorina, trust me, the US was a laughing stock around the world long before Bush came to power. Rich countries where people are happy always piss off other nations. Get used to it.

s. said...

Yeah, so Cindy's stylist isn't as talented as Michele's. I yet I still like her. Go figure.

thehomebound said...

hello gorgeous
I want to be your friend! I want to drink dirty martinis and laugh our asses off all night. Please keep speaking your mind because you say what I want to say in a much wittier and clever way than I could dream of.

Btw, I hate when people stay anonymous. If you have such strong views stop being a weenie and at least use your name. Are you really afraid that someone will kick your ass?

Ding ding ding.

Hello Gorgeous wins this round handily.

Love you hello gorgeous! I'm loosing sleep over this election... seriously.

decorno said...

Wow. I leave for the day, and look what happens?

Hello Gorgeous, along with Anon (MY anon), you're both the official keepers of my blog while I am away.

You had me at:
"Russia has ships closing in on Venezuela because Venezuela has what? Come on. I know you can do it. Oil? That’s right, oil."

True love forever.

And then Anon 6:04 adds the blow torch to your creme brulee. Pure magic. I love you guys.

hello gorgeous said...

Ha - thanks, D, anytime. xo

FYI thehomebound, there may, in fact, be dirty martinis involved in some posting from time to time, violating my cardinal rule, "Never drink and post." ;_) (That's a Picasso smiley face.)

i actually have nothing against cindy mccain. i love that she's done humanitarian work, adopted a child from a developing country, and still continues to do her charitable work.

it's her husband i have issues with. and i'm glad that the ladies of the view have called him out.

Anonymous said...

A Print a Day: true 'dat. Just 'cuz people don't like her husband and think (correctly) that Cindy doesn't have great style, doesn't mean we can't remember that she seems like a good egg, herself.

Anonymous said...

Cindy McCain continues to refer to herself as an "only child." Did you know she has 2 half-sisters? Her dad abandoned that family not long into that marriage and then moved on to a younger woman, Cindy's mom.

Cindy even referred to herself as an only child at her father's funeral. She must have forgotten that her father's other 2 ignored children were there, too.

Cindy can be generous to an adopted child, but allowed her half-sisters to inherit next to nothing of her father's fortune.

Cindy is a model citizen.

Now, can you give us a similarly detailed recap of her husband's political career?
