We have to win this thing.  I don’t have anything clever or funny to say about it.

I just wanted to drop a quick roundup of choice John McCain soundbites from this week. It’s astonishing how poorly this man handles the “tough” questions from the “straight talk express.”

McCain’s thoughts on contraception and Viagra from a July 10 interview.

And in today’s New York Times, McCain drops several choice bits that highlight, once again, how out of touch he is:

On Letting Those Pesky Gays Adopt:

Mr. McCain, who with his wife, Cindy, has an adopted daughter, said flatly that he opposed allowing gay couples to adopt. “I think that we’ve proven that both parents are important in the success of a family so, no, I don’t believe in gay adoption,” he said.

On the Internets:

He said, ruefully, that he had not mastered how to use the Internet and relied on his wife and aides like Mark Salter, a senior adviser, and Brooke Buchanan, his press secretary, to get him online to read newspapers (though he prefers reading those the old-fashioned way) and political Web sites and blogs.

“They go on for me,” he said. “I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself. I don’t expect to be a great communicator, I don’t expect to set up my own blog, but I am becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need.

Anyhow, I absolutely HAD to share this news with Mr. Uggs, who is one of my favorite snark-sounding boards. Here’s what he had to say:

In short, I cannot wait until The Uggs come for a visit! The End.

The website Country Above Self (via Wonkette) is a place for true patriots to gather and hate their fellow Americans. In addition to a comprehensive list of Patriots (freedom-from-due-process-lover Alberto Gonzales tops the list) and Traitors (Danny Glover is second only to Ron Paul), the website has a few video gems like the one above.

I think it speaks for itself but just in case you are confused as to what’s going on up there, that’s anti-Barack/pro-McCain karaoke – fun for the whole family – to the tune of Devil Went Down to Georgia. Obama and McCain fiddle-fight for the golden fiddle of the presidency. Then Obama explodes at the end. I’m starting to detect a theme.

UPDATE: Apparently the tricksters who read Wonkette hacked Country Above Self to send Mr. Glover to the top of the Traitors list. Rest assured he has been restored to his original place: marginally less traitor-ly than Sean Penn. Also, the site thanked OP for its coverage. You’re welcome!

Or maybe she’s just an old lady… but a feisty one! I am always in the market to adopt new grandfolk.

McCain girls are puttin this shit out like it’s their job.

I’m a big fan of their nonsensical stretching to rhyme with the lyrics they’re replacing. Gems from this round: “Is it McCaining with you?” “Walk with me like voters do!” “Raining in my head with fresh solutions.” And, most priceless of all, “Getting off his bus like a new emotion.”

And why is the long haired girl eternally facing away from the camera, always about to flip her hair, but never following through? WHY?

I’m… I’m sorry, McCain girl? For saying you were tone deaf and not sure how to use a blue screen? Are you gonna get absolutely John McCain on me now?

I guess this is why she’s mad – one of many comments from youtube:

the funnyest thing ever is that the main singing black girl looked retarded like retarded not meaning stupid but accualy retarded

Obviously the trolls on youtube are ridiculous, and its easy to be cruel in the anonymity of the internet. I myself have dealt with similar nameless jerks. But girl, you let yourself get all pissy over someone who writes about retarded but not retarded retarded people as though they were retarded.
