Insipid quotes from David Brooks re: John McLame…posted by Bill Arnett @ 11:51 AM Permalink …which are made up from the compost heap in which he writes his "opinion" column. He is no more a REAL columnist than I.
I will not link to his trashy columns, ever, for fear of offending too many. Quotes:
John McCain opposed the farm bill. In an impassioned speech on Monday, he declared: “It would be hard to find any single bill that better sums up why so many Americans in both parties are so disappointed in the conduct of their government, and at times so disgusted by it.”Yes, John McCain, as conservative as they come, head up bush's a$$, selling out to virtually every special interest, flip-flopping so fast no one can tell you where he stands until they read the morning paper, and a man who never met a lobbyist he didn't love like a rock.
McCain has been in Congress for decades, but he has remained a national rather than a parochial politician. The main axis in his mind is not between Republican and Democrat. It’s between narrow interest and patriotic service. And so it is characteristic that he would oppose a bill that benefits the particular at the expense of the general.
In fact, in this issue, McCain may have found a theme to unify his so far scattershot campaign. He has always been an awkward ideological warrior. In any case, this year may not be the best year for Republicans to launch a right versus left crusade. But McCain has infinitely better grounds than Obama to run as a do-what-it-takes reformer.
He has a long record of taking on not only the other party, but his own. In the current Weekly Standard, the brilliant young writer Yuval Levin suggests that McCain put reforming America’s decrepit governing institutions at the center of his presidential race.
bush on steroids personified and a man that will finish the ruination of America begun under bush, grover norquist, karl rove, richard mellon scaife, and all the 'good ole boys' of the neocon cabal that actively pursues eternal war and American Empire.
