fucking dickheads, john mccain edition

What, you thought the fucking dickheads were going away just because of a little election?

Kagro X says something very important for all of those people who think John McCain is a decent guy who got caught up in the ugliness of a presidential campaign. McCain was never one of the good guys; I confess to puzzlement over the positive feelings many progressives seemed to have for him. And, with the on-going revelations about the utter cluelessness of Sarah Palin, it's worth remembering who wanted to put her a heartbeat away from the most powerful position on Earth:

The hottest post-election gossip blazing its way across the country is, as Scout Finch noted earlier, the "revelation" that Sarah Palin was in fact even more embarrassingly clueless than her empty-headed performance over the past two months had already led America and the world to believe.

Didn't know Africa was a continent. Couldn't name the member nations of NAFTA, even though they're the immediate neighbors of the United States. And, by the way, she was never shy about parroting the crap she had been programmed with about trade, and what a genius she was on the subject because she was from a state near Russia. Or something. Also.

But think about what this means, and what almost happened to this country.

Frankly, the people who knew this about her and were still directly responsible for "vetting" her, putting her on the ticket, attempting to foist this idiot on the American people, and protecting her while there was still a chance (however theoretical) that she could become Vice President and possibly President of the United States ought to be arrested and tried for treason.... putting this dolt on the ticket takes us ten thousand miles into the fucking Twilight Zone....

John McCain should never live this down.
