If You Are Looking To Call Anyone A Crook
By: Mark W Adams

And yes, I mean you and you, and anyone else who tries the Chicago Mobster, MuslamoNazi, Terrorist-Jab, linking Obama to someone who knew-a-guy who knows-a-guy whose aunt's babysitter's cousin once dated a lesbian abortion doctor that donated $50 bucks to a charity run by someone who was mentioned in someone else's grand jury testimony -- or so they say -- who didn't wear a lapel pin . . .

There's only one presidential candidate who has broken the campaign finance laws and continues to run his campaign in violation of the law -- and that "crook" bears the same name as the law he's breaking. (In fact, if convicted, the Straight Talker could go straight to jail for five years.)

John Cole lays it out...

I want to return to this subject though because this is not hyperbole or some throw away line. He’s really doing it. McCain opting into public financing, accepted the spending limits and then profited from that opt-in by securing a campaign saving loan. And then he used some clever, but not clever enough lawyering, to opt back out. And the person charged with saying what flies and what doesn’t—the Republican head of the FEC —said he’s not allowed to do that. He can’t opt out unilaterally unless the FEC says he can.
Oh, and as for all those so-called "fiscal conservatives" who deplore unnecessary government spending calling Barack some kind of hypocrite (that's rich) for reneging on a promise he never made (since he only promised to try and reach an agreement with McCain over rules McCain won't honor to this day -- but there was no actual agreement to break contrary to what McCain or the bastards at AP, ABC News and USA Today say) -- bite me.

In other news, Chris Matthews, still a wanker, but no more so than Jake Tapper at ABC who's ridiculous headline that Obama broke a promise he never made started this whole thing. What really is fun is to take a Reichwinger's own words, and interpret them in, you know ... plain English as a means of proving they're wrong. Take Newsbuster's own graphic here.


Even a third grader recognizes a conditional sentence when they see one, even if they don't know what it's called. McCain has clearly not lived up to the conditions Obama laid out in this statement. McCain is NOT abiding by the public financing laws. McCain is in clear violation of McCain Feingold as I write this, and has been for months. Obama is under no obligation to play a fools game, and for not calling McCain a crook who took illegal loans in violation of the law to fund his floundering excuse for a national campaign, Obama also shows what a gentleman he can be ... and keeps his powder dry for the next round of bullcrap.

And one more piece of friendly advice to our friends in Wingnuttistan. If you write for Redstate, and you start out a piece by saying, "If I were a supporter of Barack Obama . . ." just stop. You're not, never will be. You just don't get it, and are mentally incapable of empathy of that sort due to the inundation of authoritarian psychopathology you've been brainwashed with all these years.

Unless you were in the Friday Funnies competition today, in that case, well done. You certainly had me fooled.
