McChangeling - See Him Change...


From the NY Daily News, Stanley Crouch slaughters John McCain and all of the other Republicans that are desperately running from their own failures:

Still dripping but fully awake, the Republican Party, which we thought would live or die as a bull under the flag of deregulation, is now sanctimoniously asserting the importance of the federal government stepping in to save the little big men of corporate America.

Have they suddenly become those traitorous agents of big government they usually dismiss as misleading populists, socialists or those willing to take us almost into the laps of the inept Marxists in Russia or China?

Of course not, says John McCain, who has become one of the most remarkable embodiments of change we have ever seen. But McCain's actual version of change is that he has become a changeling.

McCain is now deserving of the nickname McChange or McChangeling. But there is a bit of tragedy there. It is never a pleasant experience to see a man sell himself out in unimaginable ways because of the enticement of power.

The McChangeling - See him change in this rare behind the scenes McCain campaign footage with his high as a kite campaign entourage:

The McCain campaign has gotta be trippin' if they think we are buying anything they are saying anymore?

McCains Don't Pay Home Taxes For 4 Years

Rich elitists don't have to pay taxes.
McCains Owed 4 Years of Taxes on Home
According to HuffPo and via ThinkProgress:

The article reports that the McCains had been delinquent in paying
taxes until Newsweek inquired about the matter. The McCains then paid off
$6,744.42 in back taxes, but still owe more. Newsweek writes:

When you’re poor, it can be hard to pay the bills. When you’re rich, it’s
hard to keep track of all the bills that need paying. It’s a lesson Cindy McCain
learned the hard way when NEWSWEEK raised questions about an overdue
property-tax bill on a La Jolla, Calif., property owned by a trust that she
oversees. […]

County officials say the trust still owes an additional $1,742 for
this year, an amount that is overdue and will go into default July 1.

Told of the outstanding $1,742, the aide said: “The trust has paid all bills
shown owing as of today and will pay all other bills

That settles that.

John McCain is
the epitome of a

modern day "GOP fiscal conservative."

Trust fund babies that can't balance their own checkbooks,
nevermind the budget of a country.

Any bets on whether McCains used the unpaid home taxes as writeoffs against their income? Both John and Cindy need to open up all of their books for public scrutiny.

Watch and Read

Watch this Little Britain video to the end, which is only about a minute long:

Read this little blurb from the WaPo:
Staffers on Capitol Hill are howling over an e-mail sent from Sen. Larry Craig's office Friday about a watch found -- guess where -- in the men's room!

The e-mail, which is being forwarded pretty much all over the place on Capitol Hill, is from Pat Olsen, the embattled Idaho Republican's administrative director.

The e-mail announced that a watch was found in the men's room on the fifth floor of the Hart Senate Office Building, where Craig's office is located. On its face, the message suggests that a male staffer (possibly even Sen. Craig, the notorious men's room foot tapper) found the watch.
Cleaning the coffee of of the screen that I made the mistake of taking a sip of before reading that...

Typical College Republicans

Is there any wonder why their party is in decline? Via Scarce at MLN:
Max Blumenthal's hilarious and thoroughly appalling "unauthorized" College Republican Convention Tour.
On July 13, 2007, I visited Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, where the bodies of American soldiers killed in Iraq were freshly interred. Afterwards, I headed across the street to the Sheraton National Hotel, owned by right-wing Korean cult leader Sun Myung-Moon, to meet some of the war's most fervent supporters at the College Republican National Convention.

In conversations with at least twenty College Republicans about the war in Iraq, I listened as they lip-synched discredited cant about "fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here." Many of the young GOP cadres I met described the so-called "war on terror" as nothing less than the cause of their time. Huffington Post
