Stewart and McCain Reunited…and it doesn’t feel too good
Posted on April 25th, 2007 by ali -

Check out Crooks and Liars’ video of McCain’s recent trip to the Daily Show. Here’s an excerpt:

Stewart tries to explain a few things to St. McCain about fighting a civil war:

“…but that assumes that we’re fighting one enemy—they’re fighting each other. We’re not surrendering to an enemy that has defeated us. We’re saying, how do you quell a civil war when it’s not your country?”

McCain got very angry that Stewart called them out for using the ” you’re not supporting the troops,” theme and was trying to filibuster the segment…He tried to use the troops as a wedge. Stewart got hot and fought back…McCain started to stutter. (rough transcript)

Stewart: All I’m saying is you cannot look a soldier in the eye and say questioning the president is less supportive to you than extending your tour for three months when you should be coming home to your family.

McCain: Every American..

Stewart: And that’s not fair to put on people that criticize…

McCain: Jon…

Stewart: And you know I love you and respect your service and would never question any of that—this is not about questioning the troops and their ability to fight and their ability to be supported. And that is what the administration does and that is almost criminal.

    So, Mr. McCain, I have made an apparent error. I hear it's actually Iran you want to bomb.

    You really have lost your frigging mind.

    I see from some recent polling that your pandering and flippin' and floppin' have rendered you damn near unfathomable to anyone.

    Hasn't being cornholed by Bush taught you anything?

    John McCain is a rather creepy, rapidly aging excuse for a human being.
    He also is scary - especially to those of us who live here in Arizona and know/understand the political climate. Kyl is up to his eyeballs with the Corporations. McCain is like the babysitter who is on the couch with her boyfriend, not paying attention or even caring that the kids have set fire to the stove. Hayworth is gone but Abramoff is going to dog him forever (hopefully) - that one is not going to go away.

    John McCain actually fits in here in Arizona, a state where we annually celebrate the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral as having historic significance.

    He is pretending to be a gutsy renegade when he is .. simply put .. a rapidly aging old degenerate who was tortured and is trying to make himself a hero for it.

    He is reviled by his Navy comrades for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. He dropped bombs on people from 37,000 feet and never saw blood or heard screams. He is nothing more than a coward trying to re-live the good old days.

    Dear John:
    If you want to be a part of history, go to Tombstone on October 25 this year. The town re-enacts it's finest glory day - and you can participate in the "original" Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and maybe then, you can be that hero you think you are.

    Vietraq! I don't think the ghosts of your captivity that remain (what else could it be?) have been addressed. Bomb bomb bomb eh? Wasn't that the reason you were captured in the first place way back in the day?

    With your pedigree Mr. McWhack, you should have gotten proper psychiatric aftercare when you were released from your captivity. If you want to bomb Iraq then do it your damn self. You like to say that age is not an issue with respect to running for President. OK. Then take your ass to Iraq if you want to drop bombs so badly. I hear the age limit for enlistment has been raised. You of all people should be sick of war but the subject seems to excite you. Go! The rest of us have a country (ours) we are trying to save from this endless present war. You are lost in time. This is not your war of long ago. You can always go to Iraq and pretend it's Vietnam if that helps you. At least you won't be here bothering us with your ditherings and nonsense.

    I find myself having to agree with Senator McCain. He knows war. And a withdrawal timetable for Iraq is indeed tantamount to surrender. Just as withdrawal itself is tantamount to defeat. I’m sure, if someone in the liberal media would ask this great American patriot if he would rather still be rotting in the Hanoi Hilton, and would still have Americans fighting and dying in Vietnam so we wouldn’t have to fight them over here, Senator McCain would say yes in a heartbeat.

    Sincerely,

    It has come to light that both of Bloody John McCain's two top campaign chairman in Arizona Senator Jon (Hyl) Kyl, and Representative Ricky Renzi (of landswapping repute) seem to be involved in some possible coincidental mis-behavior.

    Johnny's co-campaign chairman in Arizona has got some explaining to do. He's been investigated for many months by the FBI, but a funny thing happened on his way to be indicted... seems our former U.S. Attorney here in Arizona got some calls from good ol' Renzi's office regarding his being investigated.

    Oh, and guess what: good ol' boy Senator Jon (Hyl) Kyl (also the campaign chairman for Bloody John McCain in Arizona) personally talked with Attorney General Gonzalez or his right hand man giving the "A, O.K." to fire our public attorney down here in Arizona. (per the Arizona Republic Newspaper)

    Now, before you say I'm pickin on poor Johnny McCain's friends, everything I told you is straight from Good ol' Johnny's buddies down here at the Arizona Republic Newspaper, which it just sooo happens is owned by Gannett Inc. The same company that owns U.S.A. Today and the local NBC affiliate down here in the Phoenix metro area.

    Just another coincidence that's all, Both of Johnnies friends and campaign chairman are involved in what looks like criminal mis-doing. The one campaign chairman ( Rep. Renzi) was being investigated by Charlton before he was fired (by coincidence of course) by Attorney General Gonzalez right before election time. The other campaign Chairman (Senator Hyl Kyl, in Az.) and buddy of Attorney General Gonzalez was reported by the Arizona Republic as giving permission (his blessing) to fire Charlton after personally speaking to Gonzalez or one of his top aides.
    Also, Sen. Kyl (chairman of Bloody John McCan's campaign) was reported just one time in the Arizona Republic as possibly giving advice and assistance to Gonzalez in the firing of other Federal Attorney's across the nation.
    But of course, apparently that story was quickly killed by the Republic. They will of course use the excuse that the story didn't pan out but if you live here in Az. you know that the Az. Republic has all but coronated Bloody John McCain to be president. Why even today, they as newspaper in their editorial section have again come out strongly backing their money man, John McCain.

    Well, don't you worry your pretty little head Bloody John McCain, the voters of Arizona and more importantly America probably won't even notice this story that your top two people in Arizona (Kyl and Renzi) have got some real explaining to do.

    I did through the Arizona Republic Newspaper today see that you rather liked taking your leisurely stroll through Baghdad proper (at my fellow soldiers expense) the other day with (you got it) your buddy Representative Renzi from Arizona. Seems, you get along quite well with criminals like Bush and other shady denizons here in Arizona.
    But, if anything should happen to me, I just hope that Johnny the truth comes out about you and all of your friends who like covering up the truth. Ironically, one of my heroes was a reporter from the Arizona Republic Newspaper in the 1970's. He fearlessly tried to get the truth out but was murdered in broad daylight with a car bomb within site of the Copper Capitol Dome of Arizona. But remember, Johnny McCain, Hyl Kyl and Ricki Renzi and all of your other fascist friends if anything happens to me we all know where to follow the trail of blood for you already have a trail of blood, that of my fellow American soldiers.
    You have made your crown of blood, now wear it.

    A death sentence. That is what these Republican Neo-Con blood money worshippers have given many soldiers who were supposed to come home but have been extended 3 months longer in Iraq. No friggin big deal to them because they'll go home to their families and their parties while my fellow comrades die in the hell of Iraq.
    All this, dragging on the "lie" just so they can say: We didn't withdraw from Iraq, those traitorous democrats did and so they can get more votes in the next election.
    This was the same tactic that Hitler and his group of murderous thugs used after WWI: Oh, those politicians in the government sold us out. We could've won but they back stabbed us on the home front.
    I wonder how Bloody John McCain sleeps at night, but then again, anybody who condones such criminal unconstitutional behavior on the part of King Bush and his lying Republican party, as "Bloody John" does, gives me no pause for surprise.
    Go ahead John, play the political game with my fellow soldier lives, you will probably get more votes by insincerely playing yourself off as the underdog, but every soldier that dies now puts more blood on your hands because if you would've done like Barry Goldwater would've with president Nixon: It's time to resign for the good of the country, then many tunnel visioned people would not drink the Kool-Aid anymore because you hold great influence with them. General Washington would have been like you and Bush if he had accepted the invitation to be president for life and therefore become a damn king. Fortunately, he turned down the stench of monarchy and the gold crown that came with it, but not you Johnny. Go ahead Bloody John McCain, put on your gold crown paid for with the blood of my fellow American soldiers.

    Oh well, Johnny, you're living up to your name of : "Bloody John McCain".
