Little Johnny, who is now in kindergarten just like Little DFQ, said some really bad things about Little DFQ.  So Little DFQ took his peanut butter and jelly sandwich and took a bite.  Little Johnny then scribbled on my notebook so Little DFQ then went over to Little Johnny's painting and brushed yellow paint all over Little Johnny's drawing of a truck.  Little Johnny then poured paint on little DFQs jacket and the teacher summoned us over.

Little DFQ told the teacher, "I will not sit down with little Johnny without preconditions."  Little DFQ insisted, "Johnny must agree to 1) give me $50, 2) pick his nose in front of the class, 3)  Agree to sit in the corner during lunchtime and 4)  Give me all his lunch money for a week.

The teacher explained, "Little DFQ you have to talk to people that you sometimes don't like.  That doesn't mean you are going to be friends but that doesn't mean you can't talk."

Most people learn this lesson by the end of kindergarten.  John McCain has obviously not advanced that far.  He's a child in a 72 year old's body and a dangerous child at that.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

          Sleeping, work, errands, just got home.

          I'm actually going to work on my McCain signs for the last debate which is a 25 min drive from where I live.

          I plan to parodize John with my John McCain mask.  I've researched NY's anti-masking law and applicable case law and my view is that it requires multiple users in coordination with each other.  If I go with the mask (still may not) I will bring the case law and talk to a sergeant in charge ahead of time.

          Here's what I've got so far.

          1.  I invented the blackberry
          1.  The fundamentals of the economy are strong.
          1.  Sarah Palin is a brain surgeon.
          1.  I own 7 homes and 13 cars.

          Any other suggestions?  Not to fear, I use snark and humor to make the more profound points.  As I've written many times in the past, many voters make up their minds based on what is perceived as shallow imagery but which often drives home a larger and substantive point.

        It would appear that way.

        That's something for them to know.

        As you are aware, I am a target here b/c I'm an effective Democrat.

    On this topic:

    MR. SPIVAK: Mr. Vice President, according to news dispatches Soviet Premier Khrushchev said today that Prime Minister Macmillan had assured him that there would be a summit conference next year after the presidential elections. Have you given any cause for such assurance, and do you consider it desirable or even possible that there would be a summit conference next year if Mr. Khrushchev persists in the conditions he's laid down?

    MR. NIXON: No, of course I haven't talked to Prime Minister Macmillan. It would not be appropriate for me to do so. The President is still going to be president for the next four months and he, of course, is the only one who could commit this country in this period. As far as a summit conference is concerned, I want to make my position absolutely clear. I would be willing as president to meet with Mr. Khrushchev or any other world leader if it would serve the cause of peace. I would not be able wou- would be willing to meet with him however, unless there were preparations for that conference which would give us some reasonable certainty - some reasonable certainty - that you were going to have some success. We must not build up the hopes of the world and then dash them as was the case in Paris. There, Mr. Khrushchev came to that conference determined to break it up. He was going to break it up because he would - knew that he wasn't going to get his way on Berlin and on the other key matters with which he was concerned at the Paris Conference. Now, if we're going to have another summit conference, there must be negotiations at the diplomatic level - the ambassadors, the Secretaries of State, and others at that level - prior to that time, which will delineate the issues and which will prepare the way for the heads of state to meet and make some progress. Otherwise, if we find the heads of state meeting and not making progress, we will find that the cause of peace will have been hurt rather than helped. So under these circumstances, I, therefore, strongly urge and I will strongly hold, if I have the opportunity to urge or to hold - this position: that any summit conference would be gone into only after the most careful preparation and only after Mr. Khrushchev - after his disgraceful conduct at Paris, after his disgraceful conduct at the United Nations - gave some assurance that he really wanted to sit down and talk and to accomplish something and not just to make propaganda.

    Awe crap, Senator Clinton is the same as Nixon.

    Read on.

    MR. McGEE: Senator Kennedy.

    MR. KENNEDY: I have no disagreement with the Vice President's position on that. It - my view is the same as his. Let me say there is only one uh - point I would add. That before we go into the summit, before we ever meet again, I think it's important that the United States build its strength; that it build its military strength as well as its own economic strength. If we negotiate from a position where the power balance or wave is moving away from us, it's extremely difficult to reach a successful decision on Berlin as well as the other questions. Now the next president of the United States in his first year is going to be confronted with a very serious question on our defense of Berlin, our commitment to Berlin. It's going to be a test of our nerve and will. It's going to be a test of our strength. And because we're going to move in sixty-one and two, partly because we have not maintained our strength with sufficient vigor in the last years, I believe that before we meet that crisis, that the next president of the United States should send a message to Congress asking for a revitalization of our military strength, because come spring or late in the winter we're going to be face to face with the most serious Berlin crisis since l949 or fifty. On the question of the summit, I agree with the position of Mr. Nixon. I would not meet Mr. Khrushchev unless there were some agreements at the secondary level - foreign ministers or ambassadors - which would indicate that the meeting would have some hope of success, or a useful exchange of ideas.

  •  Henry Kissinger Proves McCain Wrong.. (1+ / 0-)

    "One should be prepared to negotiate, and I think we should be prepared to negotiate about Iran," Kissinger, who brokered the end of the 1973 Yom Kippur war and peace talks with the North Vietnamese, said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. Asked whether he meant the U.S. should hold direct talks, Kissinger, 84, responded: "Yes, I think we should."

    In fact not only does Henry disagree with McCain on negotiating with Iran he HAS been negotiating with Iran.

    "I've been in semi-private, totally private talks with Iranians," he said. "They've had put before them approaches that with a little flexibility on their part would, in my view, surely lead to negotiations." He didn't elaborate on who was engaged in the talks.

      Is talking about negotiations.

      To use the analogy above Little DFQ would have to send an envoy to negotiate with a representative of Little Johnny's.

      Kissinger is not advocating face to face meetings at the presidential level without preconditions.
