Right now CNN is reporting that John McCain is in New Orleans for a 'forgotten' areas tour (aka the areas forgotten by the likes of Republicans and the DLC). The headline on cnn.com is that McSame 'scathes' Bush's response to Katrina. [Feel free to drop a comment at Jack Cafferty's blog regarding your thoughts towards McSame in NO and his photo-op. ]
Interesting. Here we see McSame try to claim some difference from the Imperial Bush way of doing things.
So is the 'maverick' GOPer actually ANY different from Bush on Katrina? Well, while reading the HuffingtonPost, a startling post reminded me of how little difference there truly is between McSame and Bush.
Over at huffpost, there is a very disturbing, yet funny, set of photos that feature McSame and Bush hanging out celebrating McSame's birthday in 2005. Having myself just learned very recently that McSame's birthday is on August 29, this was a great post to find. As the pics show, the two are on an airstrip enjoying some cake. Bush is licking icing off of his own thumb. At that same time, a monster hurricane was ravaging the Gulf Coast.
So while he goes around 'scathing' Bush's heckuva response to Katrina, we see photos here of the two good ol' boys licking icing off their fingers while NO drowns. I think it's safe to say that the 71-year old John McCain is experiencing some lapses in memory, if he is to criticize Bush's performance on Katrina when the two ate cake together on the day of the storm's landfall. But for us here, watching GOPers lie is so routine that it is usually much more shocking if they actually say something remotely truthful.
However, it is our job to point out the truth about McSame, the same way a honest man with a video camera and a simple message told the truth to Dick CHeney when he tried a phony photo-op in NO in 2005. Remember the guy that told cheney to 'go fuck himself'? I did a google search, and found the guy's own home video that documents him driving to Cheney's photo-op and personally delivering a Gulf Coast resident's honest opinion about Cheney and his heckuva bad administration.
Take a moment from being frustrated with Hilary's Pyrrhic victory and keep the guns focused on the guy the traditional media is disgustingly in love with....mr mcSame.
