When Senator John McCain pointed to Barack Obama derisively and said, "that one," what did he mean? In the recent debate, McCain's well-known temper got the best of him ...again. But this was more than a slip of the tongue, it was an insight into John McCain's deepest demons. Just what did McCain mean? What slipped out? Who would insensitively make such a reference toward another human being? How much hatred does McCain harbor for Obama? Is the hatred so deep that he would slip to making racial references? Does McCain consider himself above Obama? Does McCain know how much historical bigotry is tied up in that sort of human reference? And yes, it is fair to ask: is McCain a bigot?
John McCain scares the heck out of me. He has loaded up his campaign team with some of the most obvious special interest promoters in America [i.e. Phil Gramm]. He has done the bidding of the oil, insurance, and pharmaceutical industries. He has proposed giving MORE tax breaks to the richest people in the U.S., those who are not suffering today as the average American is. He has offered a campaign promise to give oil corporations more benefits. He has played to the extreme right-wing of his party. He selected a running mate who has no national or international experience, and a woman whom he met on one or two occasions. Though waving his military experience every chance he gets, he voted AGAINST veterans benefit packages in the Senate. He was dead wrong on invading Iraq, a sovereign nation that had nothing to do with 9-11 and distracting us from catching Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan [where we had him surrounded and at our mercy in Bora Bora]. His proposals for the future will drive us trillions of MORE dollars into debt. John McCain is a lackey for the same powers that pull the strings for George W. Bush. McCain actually supports Bush's policies. John McCain did the bidding in the Senate for the leaders of the savings and loan scandal. John McCain does not know how many houses he owns. And yes, to you Christian fundamentalist Bible-thumpers, John McCain is divorced.
Think, please, for a moment. Who is John McCain playing to with his proposals? Which voter fears is he trying to evoke? Look, please-please-please, at how John McCain characterizes Barack Obama. For goodness sake, please think for a moment: do you want this loose canon in the White House?
