Bloviating Zeppelin: Retort

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Thanks for the question, you little jerk; you're drafted."

Good grief! LOL!

It's funny, but I'll bet the students didn't think so.

Gayle: proving once again that, with John, "it's all about John."

But during a town hall-style meeting, students were more interested in pushing McCain on the environment, his support for gay rights and even his age.

Doesn't that tell you, right there, how our kids are being educated? Global warming and "civil" rights for gays is more important than radical Islamic terror.

And the hutzpah for the 16 year old to comment about "I came here hoping to see a good leader....I don't."

Doesn't matter how much you may agree with him; for a punk to be so disrespectful to an elder, let alone an elected leader....a military draft would probably do that kid some good.

Wordsmith: I don't necessarily disagree with McCain's statement. My disagreement is this:

When you begin a campaign, if this is where you go, then make it CLEAR that this is WHAT YOU ARE from the beginning.

If I were running, I would be an apologist for NO ONE. Every person would know my thoughts and my thoughts would have mirrored McCain's. "You insignificant little shit, when you can actually get here other than on your bicycle, and you have a job other than McDonald's, we'll perhaps talk. Otherwise," -- SLAP -- "here are my thoughts regarding your stupid fucking comments."

Yah, Sean Hannity was trying to make a weak defense of this and I just thought no matter whether it was a joke or not I think I would've been taken aback by having that said to me by a presidential candidate.

But when it comes to John McCain nothing surprises me.

Listening to the whole thing it was a joke, and taken as such by the kids. They had just finished discussing the idea of a draft, so the kid knew where the comment came from.

This thing is a case of the blogging world pulling an MSM, and taking something completely out of context, and making a huge deal out of it.
(no, I'm not a McCain supporter)
