“my fellow prisoners”

I feel terrible about not blogging last night. I feel like I let you all down. I’m sorry about that… Anyway, I’m going to try to make up for it tonight. Assuming Clementine doesn’t wake up, or that delicious burger I just ate at Sidetrack doesn’t decide to come back out, I’ve got a four hour block of time to just sit here in my tattered blogging leotard, read the news, and make obnoxious comments. In the meantime, here’s a little piece of video to puzzle over.

“My fellow prisoners.”

What do you make of that? A few folks in the press are suggesting that he’s lost his marbles. My guess is that he’s just laying the groundwork for an insanity defense. Or, maybe Frank Luntz found, in focus groups, that the Republican base likes it when they’re referred to as prisoners. Or, maybe, just maybe, McCain is trying to tell us something. Maybe he’s trying to let us know that he’s being held hostage by some kind of force beyond his control. Maybe he’s telling us that we all are! Maybe the aliens, or, worse yet, the reptilian shape-shifters have seized power!

    The “put on the fucking glasses” comment is hereby deemed too easy. Work it.

    Since when is it a good thing that a 17 year old is pregnant? I suppose that, given Palin’s family assets of nearly 1.5 million dollars, they can afford it. However, I feel that the constant putting of Bristol Palin on a pedestal legitimizes teen pregnancy and makes it appear to be a good idea for girls..

    I hope all the community folks trying to curb teen pregnancy rates are sickened.

    I think all your guesses about what’s behind McCain’s Freudian slip are probably pretty accurate in some sense. McCain’s slip reminds me of your Manchurian Candidate comments a few weeks ago. Seriously though, McCain’s fucked, and he knows it. The best thing that could happen to him at this point is for him to lose thing (not to mention it’s also the best thing for the rest of us) and then he can go and spend the few years he has left with that wonderful wife of his, doing all the fun stuff millionaires get to do. If he wins, his life is over. It’s essentially curtains for him, and he knows it. That poor bastard. If he wasn’t on two dozen types of medication right now I’m sure he’d be suicidal.

    I meant to say “to lose this thing” above…not “lose thing”. Sorry. Maybe that’s my Freudian slip regarding my erectile dysfunction.

    Right now, McCain’s probably WISHING it were aliens who have him on a leash. Anything would probably look better to him than the war-profiteers and oil companies at this point. It would be sorta funny if super-capitalist aliens DID move in to take over Earth’s markets and exploit us to shit. You have to admit, we’d pretty much deserve it.
