Hypocrisy, Hypocrisy, Hypocrisy...That is John McCain


If the Republicans want to make hay or talking points on John Edwards, fine that means I can talk 24/7 on John McCain and Cindy to an extent of their shocking affair.

Everyone can agree that the John Edwards mess is distasteful, shocking (to a point) and reeks of hypocrisy. Nuff said.

But these blowhard Republicans need not go on ANY TALK NUT SHOW and blast Edwards when McCain got his second wife, almost the same way!!

It is public knowledge that while John McCain had a sick first wife and children at home, he was running after tail of the 20-something, Cindy Hensley.

Yes, love prevailed. Isn't that lovely? It always does in these situations, but McCain while running around with Cindy and taking out a marriage license was still a very married man with children. And Cindy Hensley McCain should not be excused, she knew John McCain was married and still had her roll in the hay.

The point is this; the GOP need not even talk about anything that has the word "affair" attached. McCain is a flawed candidate on this account and admitted it. So, why the GOP needs to go down this road is beyond me.

Chris Wilson, Republican pollster, said, “(Edwards is) running for president on moral values. His wife has been diagnosed with cancer and yet this is a man that we’re going to trust of leading the free world? ...That’s why this is an issue.”

Hannity smacked his hands together as he said, “If you can’t keep a promise to your family, can’t keep a promise to your wife, you’re having an affair, you’re lying about the affair repeatedly. Why should the American people trust you when you say you’re not gonna lie to them? Why should we trust you?”

“That’s a great question Sean asked,” Colmes said as he began his turn. To conservative Amanda Carpenter, Colmes asked, “Amanda, if that’s true, you can’t trust somebody who had an affair, how can we trust John McCain to be president of the United States since he cheated, by his own admission, on his first wife? He didn’t keep his marital vows. He didn’t keep his pledge to his first family.”

That’s when the fireworks started. Carpenter dodged the question by saying it's an issue that has been thoroughly vetted. Wilson made the laughable claim that Edwards had attacked Clinton for cheating on his wife. Hannity had a major hissy fit (most likely because he had been caught red-handed with his own hypocrisy) and insisted that McCain’s behavior should be viewed through the lens of having returned home from being a POW.

And here is the video of Hannity and Colmes:

The MSM does not want to go into detail about John McCain, but I believe that tide is turning. After getting egg on its face on the John Edwards mess and validating the tabloid magazine, National Enquirer, who got the story right, they are not going to sit on the sidelines. If you want to continue to talk affair, as the media is, then you must throw John McCain's infidelity into the pot, too. You cannot examine one without the other, since both ran/still running for POTUS.

Nobody reading this gives a ratsass on who is doing whom. Who fucking cares, but as long as the media is running with this story, we must endure it or turn the channel.

As for Edwards, my point is this; he should have come totally clean on Friday and shut this story down. I mean all of it. It is just not Fox constantly reporting this; it is all the news organizations. Until that happens, yes we have to listen to this bullshit.

Finally, no this is not the detriment to Barack Obama. His name is not John McCain or John Edwards and we, as Democrats need to be happy a bullet was dodged.

just my two cents.
