What Kind of Man is McCain

Leave it to a British Tabloid to print some really nasty stuff on McCain:

...Ted Sampley, who fought with US Special Forces in Vietnam and is now a leading campaigner for veterans’ rights, said: ‘I have been following John McCain’s career for nearly 20 years. I know him personally. There is something wrong with this guy and let me tell you what it is – deceit.

‘When he came home and saw that Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he started running around on her almost right away. Everybody around him knew it.

‘Eventually he met Cindy and she was young and beautiful and very wealthy. At that point McCain just dumped Carol for something he thought was better.

‘This is a guy who makes such a big deal about his character. He has no character. He is a fake. If there was any character in that first marriage, it all belonged to Carol.’
...Ross Perot, who paid her medical bills all those years ago, now believes that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel – even by the standards of modern politics.

‘McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching for attention and glory,’ he said.

‘After he came home, Carol walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona. And the rest is history.’

I want to stop posting on national politics, I really do. Especially the negative stuff, but the draw is too strong for me. I'm growing to understand that this medium is not meant for long-winded well-crafted messages. The whole point of blogging is to put the instant thought out there. I may regret some of it. But so what? If I thought about this stuff too long before posting, nothing would get posted. You, the reader, can always skip the stuff that doesn't interest you.

But, I definitely could do better at writing about the livability of downtown Cincinnati. I want to focus more on local, really local events and people. I would like to have more photos of people, and less of buildings. But sometimes it is easier to throw in some political junk....

If these two are the best this country can come up with for presidential candidates, then we're nearly out of hope. They both suck.

Worse than GWB? I think we got the best each side had to offer, and I am glad of it.

GWB is 2nd only to Carter in terms of being the worst president this country has ever had. McCain is definitely not the best the Republican side had to offer; he's barely a conservative -- which I guess would explain why you don't feel too badly about him ;-)
