Clayton Williams, Are You Kidding Me?

So, there is this brewhaha from the a stronghold on Hillary Clinton supporters, who are so hurt by the media's treatment of there candidate and the entire inevitability of Hillary Clinton that was flushed down the toilet, that they will ignore every single thing about John McCain, because he is not black and he is not the person that stole there thunder.

So, while John McCain has no ties to this quote, and the fact that this is a quote from the 80s, when Clayton Williams lost to Ann Richards, lets still focus on the fact that as on 11 PM eastern time, McCain did not give the money back, that Clayton raised for him.

I shall put the quote in big bold colorful letters...

"Claytie" Williams made about women and rape nearly 20 years ago. While running unsuccessfully against Ann Richards for governor, the Texan was overheard comparing rape to the weather: "As long as it's inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it."




Thank you and good night

Sadly, I'm thinking the same thing about a McCain presidency.

I do not believe for a minute that, when women understand what a McCain Presidency means to the Supreme Court, they won't vote Obama. Let's face it -- Are we really ready for sex ed classes to include coat hangers and knitting needles again? I don't think so.

Do you folks really want a guy in charge of our nation in a time of war who has zero military experience and minimal political experience? The thing that scares me the most are interviews with voters who are enthusiastic about voting for Obama simply because he's black.

Skin color is such a qualifying factor in any job position.

valtool: Pardon me for clouding the issue with facts, but the guy in charge of our military NOW has no military experience. How's that working out for us?
As for minimal political experience, I'm all for it.

Ya see, I dont even have to get involved. You guys make better points then I do.

Though the extent of his attendance is questionable. George W. Bush served in the Texas Air National Guard as a pilot and held the rank of Lt.

If you define serving in the military as "having military experience" then your statement is incorrect.

You will have to forgive me for not wanting to support the representatives of the Democrat party because I feel that the labor I perform should result in income for my use and to pay for the essential services that my government is in the best position to manage for me such as emergency services, defense of our nation, and on a local level the establishment of laws to protect individuals and their property. My tax money should not be used to pay for services for those who feel the government is there to make their life better.

For example, I have made an effort to make myself desirable to an amployer who rewards my labor with insurance offerings that enable me to use private medical centers and providers. I chose not to father children I can not provide for and to then burden my fellow citizens with the cost of my medical care. The public hospital that serves the majority of the metro-Atlanta is bleeding money (no pun intended) to the tune of millions of dollars each year. So what do the Democrats want? Healthcare for everyone, managed and provided by the government.

I forgot to mention, the more important thing, that it's John McCain who has served his country in the military, has experience as an officer (leader of men) and suffered what for some is worse then death by being held as a POW in the Vietnam War.

Compared to Obama or Clinton, he's the guy I want in charge of our military.

Politics as usual is what got us into this mess to begin with. John McCain is the status quo and I'm tired of the status quo.
For those of you who want another 4 years of the Bush Administration, McCain is the carbon copy you're looking for. It will be 4 more years of a falling dollar (which is partly responsible for the rise in gasoline prices), stagnant economic growth and a general disregard for the well being of the planet.

Bush's "military experience" if it existed, included as much leadershihp and battlefield experience as the state of Texas can provide. He probably entered the Guard as a lieutenant, so big deal.

The fact that McCain had such a horrible experience in war and knows of its horror is what makes it even more odd that he would choose to continue it.

Four years I worked very hard on Senator Kerry's campaign, and so I know that four years ago John McCain was just as vehement as Senator Kerry about abolishing torture. Senator Kerry explained that it's not effective because it takes too long to break someone in the technological age. (If a terrorist doesn't answer his cell phone or email for more than a day or two, his cellmates realize something is wrong and they go to Plan B, and it takes more than a day or two to break a zealot's spirit.) John McCain, a POW himself, with a son serving in the military, said torture was wrong because ... it's wrong. And we don't want our soldiers at risk for it.

Of course, that was four years ago. Now torture ain't so bad. Talk about flip-flopping. Very sad.

It has become clear to me that--if for no other reason to bring peace to Philly Transplantville--I shall have to run once again for president.

And this time I'm going to win.
