John McCain proves it once and for all: HE COULDN’T HOLD A CANDLE TO MY SOLDIER FATHER!

johnmccainturtlephotoshoppedbyzarzosoonflicker

John McCain is a piece of shit. For him to say just a few years ago that if the military leaders approached him and told him it’s time to repeal Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell, he would gladly work to do it. Fast forward to today and we see John McCain in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing with the military leaders who tell him it’s time to repeal this awful piece of crap, and what does he do? He doesn’t listen to them! He decides instead to spew the right wing fringe rhetoric that gay soldiers put our nation at risk.

My father was a tank Sargent in the U.S. Army in the late 50′s, early 60′s. To this day he speaks lovingly (seriously! He does!) of his soldiers and likes to compare them to the characters on Welcome Back Kotter, meaning, they came from all different walks of life and there were a couple of “Horseshacks”, you know, a few soldiers who might have been gay or not, but it didn’t matter to anyone, because as soldiers they’re there for each other and worrying about something as stupid as that is not what makes a good soldier! He’s been friends with some of these soldiers for over 50 years now!

Dad grew up extremely poor in Portland, Maine (the house he lived in as a child is now a big parking lot on the corner of Congress & Franklin Streets!) and besides his sister Nellie (my Aunt Nell whom I’ve talked about before on my blog! Love her!) being 10 years older than him and making sure my father got what he needed throughout his childhood, his Uncle Wayne was also the person who made the biggest impact in his life! Uncle Wayne was gay. He was openly gay too and no one in the family cared one iota. Wayne was the male figure in my Dad’s life for years, because my Nana and Grampy were alcoholics who weren’t always there for him, and when Uncle Wayne died a few years ago all my father could talk about is how wonderful this man was to him.

My Dad was and is a great soldier and man while John McCain is a horrible soldier and person. He’s self-centered, unappreciative, a sucky soldier, and downright wrong about the gays and lesbians who have always been in our military doing a fine job and who still are! McCain is a piece of shit. The End. I would say that maybe it’s time for him to listen to his daughter and wife about being a better person, but now that he’s aligned himself with the right wing religious fringe in our country and being fed by them, he most likely hates women too and won’t listen. What an ass!

  1. Great post, K. I really don’t think John McCain has any principles. I think he wakes up and sees which way the wind is blowing and sets his course. He seems to get away with it an awful lot too, it must be because he has the media over to his Sedona Ranch and barbecues for them.

  2. McCrazy grew up in privileged circumstances as the son of an Admiral. and is completely disconnected from reality. I do not place one penny’s worth on any of the garbage spewed forth by this old prick.

  3. I don’t know your dad but I’m sure if he read your blog he would be extremely disappointed by the extremist views and the poor vocabulary expressed in each of your posts and comments Kay.

    John McCain lived a very hard and difficult early life and then was rewarded later on in his life. His mind is getting weak and he should retire but it’s really disgusting to read your thoughts on the man.

    • My father raised me to BE AN INDEPENDENT THINKER, you know, something you neocons know nothing about….especially when it comes to raising your daughters or your wives/girlfriends!

      John McCain was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He’s no different than George Bush.

  4. McCain is the king of flip-floppers. Wonder how many Vietnamese prison guards he serviced in order to get better treatment??? :roll:

    BTW, Sen. Susan Collins is now on Andrea Mitchell’s hour lambasting Obama’s handling of the Christmas Day pants-bomber. She is so upset he was given access to a lawyer. My oh my, how AMERICAN to have access to a lawyer. She says that there will be another attack within the next 6 months. Clairvoyant??? Hopeful???

      Great question Grant! I wonder too. :-)

  5. Susan Collins is one of the many Republicans who drank the “Fear Kool-aid” during the Bush terms. Their fear has risen to the level of a phobia. I wonder if when they walk down the street, they keep looking behind to see if a terrorist is following them. It would be funny if they weren’t so scary and if they didn’t cause more fear in the general public by quaking in their boots like children in the dark.

    • Jim, Collins is an asshat. She’s not a moderate either. Under George Bush she voted 80% of the time in favor of his polices with 88% in favor of his economic policies alone! She’s part of the downfall of our nation and why George Bush & Dick Cheney were protected from war crimes charges! I hate her.

  6. Like John “Flip-Flop” McCain, Susan puts her finger in the wind blowing up from Massachusetts since the Scott Brown election and thinks she had better kiss some REICH-wing ass who will teabag her if she doesn’t bend farther to the right.

    • I hate Susan Collins. The End. (and yes I know she’s siding with the military leaders on this subject but she is such a backstabber I couldn’t trust her at this point to open up a loaf of bread for me!)

  7. I grew up an army brat. My father was a lifer and served in Vietnam, also. He never talked much of that time in his life. McCain just needs to go out to pasture. He is not a military hero and has no integrity, imho. I hope we can get him out this November and get Rodney Glassman in. http://www.rodneyglassman.com/

    JD Hayworth is going to probably get the republican nomination here in AZ, but he is worse than McCain. Of coure Palin is coming out to support McCain. She does have a good sized ignorant following out here.

  8. LOL Sorry for all the comments in a row I left! I sometimes respond to your comments from the dashboard of my blog and don’t always realize your comments are on the same post! :lol: Oopsie.

  9. LOL Sorry for all the comments in a row I left! I sometimes respond to your comments from the dashboard of my blog and don’t always realize your comments are on the same post! :lol: Oopsie.

    The more of your posts and comments I read the more I understand how very much you do not realize.

  10. “My father raised me to BE AN INDEPENDENT THINKER, you know, something you neocons know nothing about….especially when it comes to raising your daughters or your wives/girlfriends!”

    You should have taken his advice because I have yet to see you think anyway other than liberal. An independent thinker would look at both sides.

    I raised my daughter but can’t say the same for my wife, she is an independent thinker and would object to my saying I raised her.

  11. We liberals think alike. We don’t think like you neocons. Isn’t that neat? It’s what makes us liberals the rational ones! We could never be like you neck drooling knuckle draggers. No way!

    How did your non-military father raise you? To date rape, steal, and stand up for the corporations on Wall Street only?

    I bet you don’t let your wife talk nor your daughter.

  12. Say what you want about McCain but if you were not in Vietnam you have no idea what he went through. The only one on this board who should comment is Cliff because he says he served during a conflict and has some clue, provided he is telling the truth.

    A Freudian slip by Collins? Which makes me wonder, where is evil Darth Cheney been lately?
    Heart problems (hopefully) or is he hatching the next sinister plot against our country?

    —————————————–
    How do we know McCain was telling the truth? Perhaps as the Admirals son he received preferential treatment over other POW’s?

    Perhaps the whole POW affair was a hoax to further a career in politics?

    Now before you right wingers get all bent out of shape over my comment, this is exactly what some on the right claimed about John Kerry.

    So suck it!

  15. I served too. During the Viet-Nam conflict. I understand blood and guts on a downed aircraft. I know all too well what death looks like.

    John McCain is no war hero. He does not have or deserve my respect. I’ve pissed on better than he.

    Do not presume to lecture me on your “principles” unless you’ve bathed in blood, or heard the death rattle of a buddy. You chickenhawks are the lowest form of puke to ever violate this planet!

    • William, we completely respect your service to our nation! Thank you. ;-)

      By the way, all the trolls here are yellowbellied chickenhawks. They all have “medical excuses” as to why they can’t serve the country while yelling at us liberals that we are the cowards. See?

  16. Never was a POW being fortunate to always be looking down proving that given enough power a rock can fly. I wouldn’t piss on a fellow soldier like William would but to each his own.

    John Kerry was exposed for what he was.

  17. I see the RACIST TROLL Sen. Jeff Sessions aka clif8 (last week he was cliff88) is dragging his knuckles back to this blog…

  18. John McCain did say that gays and lesbians have served “admirably” and even given their lives and further saying: “I honor their sacrifice, and I honor them.” To which Maureen Dowd added, “Just as long as they deny their identity and pretend to be something they’re not.” Maybe it’s because McCain is very good at pretending something he is not, perhaps???

    How many gay soldiers gave their lives for their nation, didn’t get to come home to become a multi-millionaire US Senator. Meanwhile during the Vietnam War where over 58,000 American soldiers gave their lives, our HERO Johnny boy was safely being held in a prison while other soldiers were facing enemy fire daily. Our planes didn’t bomb known POW camps in the north. McCain was crippled due to his plane crash into a lake (BTW, the 5th million dollar plane McCain crashed in his “ace” flying career!). Being a POW was no bed of roses as being locked away is torture in itself, but he survived and came back home looking fit.

    McCain’s total time over [enemy territory] Vietnam before being shot down, was about 10 1/2 hours. For those 10 1/2 hours over Vietnam, McCain, the Admiral’s son, was awarded two Silver Stars, two Legions of Merit, two Distinguished Flying Crosses, three Bronze Stars, the Vietnamese Legion of Honor and three Purple Hearts averaging over one hero medal per hour.

  19. I doubt he would have chosen sitting out the war as a POW. He got shot down fighting for his country in an illegal war escalated by LBJ and ended up a POW, not something anyone would choose.
    Maybe we should charge him with destroying government property.

    • John McCain looked very healthy when he finally came home to the States:

      http://a.236.com/images/photo2.....s1-274.jpg

      He didn’t suffer at all! Well, okay, maybe from the injuries suffered in the plane crash, but during the time he sat out the war while REAL soldiers fought, he laid back, probably took in some women, played cards, ate well and smoked cigarettes every gawddamn day! Really, had he been tortured for all that time, he wouldn’t have looked so healthy don’t you think?

  20. The point is McCain SURVIVED and used his “HERO” story to propel him into a lucrative political life. 58,000 soldiers both straight and gay didn’t fare as well.

  21. Guess he followed another war “hero”, JFK, and all he did was run his PT boat into a slow battle ship where he should have been charged with incompetence.

    He even got a movie out of the deal and became president. I am sure that had nothing to do with his bootlegger father’s political influence.

  22. Since Askimet blocks me, trying again!!!

    My how your REICH-wing TROLLS LIE and try to rewrite history. To quote the REICH’s favorite Congresscritter, Joe Wilson of South Carolina, Ralph, YOU LIE!

    On 2 August, 1943 the JAPANESE destroyer class Amagiri rammed and sank the future U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s PT-109 torpedo boat.

    As for Joseph Kennedy, Sr. being a “boot-legger” another favorite REICH-wing LIE, At the end of Prohibition, Kennedy and James Roosevelt traveled to Scotland to buy distribution rights for Scotch whisky. In addition, Kennedy had purchased spirits-importation rights from Schenley, a firm in Canada. He was already a wealthy man through his capitalist investments in Wall Street. He didn’t need to “bootleg” when he could import alcohol LEGALLY.

    No wonder the late Howard Zinn felt he needed to write a history of these United States to right many falsehoods out there.

  23. “In 1973 mob boss Frank Costello said he and Kennedy had been bootlegging partners. Other underworld figures have also claimed Joe was in pretty deep. At least one writer (Davis, 1984) thinks bootlegging enabled Joe to earn his initial financial stake”
    http://www.straightdope.com/co.....lys-wealth

    Lets see if I get this. A fast, highly maneuverable small PT boat is rammed by a huge destroyer. Guess the skipper was right on top of things and it wasn’t his fault. I bet he blamed Bush, after all he was a democrat.

    • Atlanta Ralph, you’re against business men now? I thought you conservative teabaggers were corporatists and you don’t care how a person makes his or her millions….just as long as they’re millionaires?

  24. So our TROLL RALPH cites Straight Dope a blog written by a pseudonym author “Cecil Adams” whose very article about Joe Kennedy admits the only nameable sources are mob bosses??? Fine upstanding citizens I guess who are to always be believed??? :roll:

    http://www.statemaster.com/enc.....ecil-Adams

    “Cecil Adams” in Ralph’s “link” above says about the alleged Kennedy “bootlegging” that his “Prohibition liquor business (never proven, by the way)” and again Adams wrote….”Kennedy may also have traded in illegal booze, although the evidence is circumstantial. His father had been in the liquor business before Prohibition, and Joe himself got into it (publicly, that is) immediately after repeal.

    And then our TROLL also does not have a credible link that John Kennedy’s boat was not hit by a Japanese destroyer.

    So until TROLL Ralph can submit CREDIBLE links, I must contend that he is trying to LIE on Kay’s blog in true TROLL fashion.

  25. Thats funny grant about you don’t consider anything a credible source. There are a number of sources and they all say the same thing, it was rumored joe was a bootlegger but never proven.

    I do believe JFK’s PT boat was hit by a destroyer. I don’t see how his incompetence made him a hero.
