*****WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! THIS POST IS BEING WRITTEN BY AN ANGRY BLOGGER AND I AM REDUCED TO SWEARING BECAUSE OF THE ANGER. APOLOGIES TO ANY ONE OFFENDED. *****
Right now, I am beyond angry with the reports of now, thankfully, former "staffers" to the McCain campaign are airing dirty laundry about the running mate, the Alaska governor, Sarah Palin.
But, who is amazingly silent about all of this?
Why it is the wily ol' Maverick himself, Sen. John McCain, the Republican presidential nominee.
After all, he made the decision to choose Gov. Palin. Who can he blame? Himself? Nah! Blame the choice!
Listen up Johnny Mac.
I was NOT for your candidacy in the first place. I backed Mitt Romney. When it was clear that Mr. Romney would have no chance and was gracious in throwing his support behind you, that was a sign that the rest of us should do the same. And, I did. But here is the thing. I and most against your candidacy did so grudgingly. But, when you chose Gov. Sarah Palin, I and a whole lot of people were thrilled and surprised. I thought that you realized that win or lose you were looking to the next generation. But, no, it appears that you had your head up your rear end because when it came to the fact that she was being abused within 24 hours of the announcement, you did not show the infamous "F--- You" anger that earned the "F--- You" moniker at this site. Oh, I am sorry, maybe that is because Gov. Palin is an unabashed conservative. You save the "F--- You" for supposedly your own Republicans, like Texas Sen. John Cornyn. And now, that you lost, you are not shutting up all these people who are reduced to saying how "uncommon" it was for Gov. Palin to open her hotel room door in a bathrobe and towel on her wet hair.
Which leads to the whole problem of your candidacy, Johnny Mac.
You did not give any one a reason to vote for you. Just against the other guy.
No wonder President-elect Obama won.
And, he would have really blown you out of the water if you did not have Gov. Palin on the ticket.
BTW, Johnny Mac, did you really think that the crowds that came out when you campaigned with Gov. Palin were there to see you? Oh, yes, z z z z by the time you came up to the mike.
Because of the choice of Gov. Palin, I decided that I would do the volunteering thing. I spent a few nights phone banking. Not because I thought you were Mr. Wonderful, Johnny Mac. Because I really thought that Gov. Palin was an inspired choice. And the thanks that she got was a slap in the face by people that could not run around a track.
Hey, Steve Shit Schmidt. Yeah, I am reduced to profanity. Anyway, Steve Shit, why do you not man-up and tell us your concerns on the record? Or Nicolle Wallace? What you two are Chicken Shits! You, not the thousands that showed up, volunteered our hearts out, and not Gov. Palin, are the reason Johnny Mac lost. And, Johnny Mac, because you showed no leadership, you have to blame yourself.
Come on, Johnny Mac. Man-up and tell these people to shut their holes and if they care about "Country First" pledge to rebuild the Republican party instead of tearing it down. You claim to be a Republican. Act like one!
And, while you are at it, take some responsibility for your loss. Even the Great Man, Ronald Reagan, had to do that a couple of times.
If you want to be a statesman within the Republican party, call out these creeps and admit that you could have done a better job in the campaign. You owe to those that supported you in the campaign.
