from bomb iran to love and compassion

John McCain on YouTube on Wednesday evening:

“We need to sit down as Americans and recognize these are God’s children as well,” he said, “and they need some protections under the law, and they need some of our love and compassion.”

John McCain at a Vets meeting in April:

Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran. What's that going to offend? The Iranians?

The last time a republican presidential candidate talked about compassion, he ended up leading us into a $1.6 trillion dollar bomb iraq and afghanistan SNAFU.

You know what's *really* frightening? The possibility that, what with rigged voting machines, intervention by the supreme court, and the fact that the Constitution is all but already suspended, John McCain actually *could* become the next president. And since Americans seem to have pretty much lost the art of mass demonstration, public protest, and so forth, probably no one will do squat about it.
