Death of the Snake Oil Salesmen
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the last spittle-flecked gasp of the homemade grassroots neocons who support their man John McCain.
When I say that I cannot get into the mindset and gain some valuable insight into the conservative mind, I'm not fooling. So please don't ask me for insight when some guy sets up shop near a McCain appearance and starts handing out Obama bumper stickers saying "Obama For Change" and using a Soviet-era sickle for the "C" and a Muslim crescent while railing about Obama's still-alleged Muslim roots.
Maybe I fell asleep in high school history class but when did the Muslims ever control the Soviet Union and how, in their Bizarro World algebraic thinking, did Obama get mixed up in this Xtreme whiteboarding of history?
Well, along comes into the mix a Muslim McCain campaign staffer, a Mr. Daniel Zubairi, to decry this man's snake oil salesmanship, saying that the McCain campaign doesn't condone this kind of conduct. Many moderate McCain supporters, Christian and Muslim alike, rallied around him and united to hound bumper sticker guy out of the area (he refused to give out his name when asked).
The Muslim McCain staffer? The campaign's not letting Mr. Zubairi talk to CNN to tell his side of the story. That's gratitude for you not to mention an incredibly stupid choice to pass up a golden opportunity to get back some of the Muslim votes that this unnamed assclown had already chased away.
Add to this an Obama canvasser, a woman, fer crissakes, getting punched in the face by a guy who's suddenly passionate about ACORN and an Obama supporter's tires getting slashed and you're getting just a tiny picture of the thuggery we liberals and progressives are up against. Don't think for a minute that when Obama gets in the White House these maniacs will lick their wounds and hide in their dog houses for the rest of their lives.
McCain's dead just before the finish line. And when meat turns rotten, it will inevitably attract maggots.
