McCain Screwed Up So Badly, Ha

by Jim Newell

The National Review hears something HMM: “One side effect of McCain’s debate gambit is, I’m told, that everyone at Ole Miss now hates him. It will make for a very hostile audience tonight among those students and faculty attending. He might have to apologize for creating the uncertainty or make some explanation up front, which is never ideal.” Ah but Rich Lowry, a Maverick thrives on hatred! (Besides, they don’t like BLACK PEOPLE either in Mississippi so it balances out). As John McWalnuts has told us countless times this campaign, he’s been on Capitol Hill for decades and has made no friends there. It’s his “thing.” What a man! A couple of other analyses of how McCain blew nuts with this weird debate gag, below.

Chris Cillizza gives us “The Fix,” nyah nyah:

But, over the intervening 24 hours, McCain saw what at first looked like a brilliant political gambit turn into a nightmare, as an apparent done deal to save the financial industry devolved into a partisan shouting match at the White House that left congressional negotiators back at square one.

[...]

Spin aside, McCain blinked in what had become a high stakes staring contest between he and Obama.

IN THE TANK. Where’s a Republican? Here’s some Republican. Tell us, random hobo Republican, did John McCain blink or are you in the tank also?:

“It just proves his campaign is governed by tactics and not ideology,” said Republican consultant Craig Shirley, who advised McCain earlier in this cycle. “In the end, he blinked and Obama did not. The ‘steady hand in a storm’ argument looks now to more favor Obama, not McCain.”

Shirley added, “My guess is that plasma units are rushing to the McCain campaign as we speak to replace the blood flowing there from the fights among the staff.”

Gross! A tank of blood, and he is in it.

*Ahem*

FAIL.

Tactics?

A dog chasing it’s own tail or licking its own balls has a better grasp of tactics than Walnuts has.

Texan Bulldoggette September 26, 2008 at 2:17 pm

Yeah, but his name is “Shirley”, so Walnuts thinks he’s a pussy. BTW: Huckleberry also slammed Walnuts this morning. What’s a poor, lonely maverick with no friends to do?

Walnuts reminds me of Two Girls, One Cup only he is not the pretty.

loquaciousmusic September 26, 2008 at 2:17 pm

McCain plans to spend the entire debate singing karaoke to Roxy Music songs.

shortsshortsshorts September 26, 2008 at 2:18 pm

Not even Rove can save you now, Walnuts.

CivicHoliday September 26, 2008 at 2:18 pm

Epic epic fail. Walnuts looks like a total jackass right now, and EVERYBODY knows it, even all his supporters and staff. And worse, now everybody knows what a vapid worthless lump of T & A he chose as his running mate. What a pair! GOP now and forever more shall stand for Gays Oogling Power (with the subscript – FROM AFAR).

If the American people see this for the cheap political stunt it is it will be worth the ulcer I got from fuming over this.

Let’s see.

step 2: sabotage bail out talks with cheap stunt. ( see step 1)
step 3: realize your blunder.
step 4: go to debate and lose big time.

ktrose September 26, 2008 at 2:20 pm

Sounds like Palin really does need to take the helm of this campaign. After all she’s been “anti-blink”ing since day one.

ManchuCandidate September 26, 2008 at 2:21 pm

So far McCain hasn’t proven the Navy wrong when they said he was unfit for higher command.

Delaying his Delay of the Debates… A Brilliant Tactic if I’ve ever seen one.

Cathangover September 26, 2008 at 2:22 pm

Of course I’m hoping McCain will stand behind the podium tonight and start pounding his papery fists onto the podium until they turn to an apple sauce consistency, but I’m assuming he’ll do just well enough, somehow, that everything will be back to square one on Monday when the Stock Market crashes so low mathematicians will be scrambling to create a new number.

Dave J. September 26, 2008 at 2:28 pm

Spin aside, McCain blinked in what had become a high stakes staring contest between he and Obama.

Ugh, bad grammar. It’s “him,” not “he.” Gah.

cynbot September 26, 2008 at 2:28 pm

According to a friend of mine who teaches at Ole Miss, they’ve saved a whopping 30 seats for (white) faculty and students. It’ll be the same ole assholes in the audience, so suck that, NR.

On the plus side, at least McCain won’t have to share a drinking fountain with Obama for the first debate, at least.

Lionel Hutz Esq. September 26, 2008 at 2:29 pm

Please. McCain is not going to show up. He is going to call the debate about an hour before it starts, announce that he must immediately return to Washington to solve all the world’s problems, and then bee seen in Mississippi having dinner at a Mark Russell performance.

donner_froh September 26, 2008 at 2:29 pm

That blinking GIF of McCain is strangely hypnotic.

El Topo September 26, 2008 at 2:29 pm

In the debate tonight, Walnuts will suspend his response to the first question until the last question has been asked, saying that he wants “to carefully weigh, my friends, these important questions carefully for five and a half years, Alan.” When all of the questions have been asked–with Walnuts sitting there blinking silently for the duration, he will get really red, call Lehrer a “cunt,” and trip over a studio cable as he storms off of the stage. Slapstick Hilarity Ensues!

Barry will laugh for six hours and we will all have happy, smiley unicorn-rainbow-days forever, amen.

Lionel Hutz Esq. September 26, 2008 at 2:32 pm

For what it is worth, since I’m home sick today:

According to Rush Limbaugh, everything is Obama’s fault since he couldn’t run the meeting at the White House that was called by George W. Bush at John McCain’s recommendation. Apparently John McCain’s failure to take charge, or say anything meaningful at the meeting just shows what a brilliant leader the maverick is.

Either I’m really sick, or Limbaugh has been hitting the Hillbilly Heroin again.

shoeho September 26, 2008 at 2:32 pm

[re=110073]facehead[/re]: Or, for a real laff riot, he could just send Sarah instead. I mean, he DID say she was qualified.

On a more important note, who is going to stay sober tonight, get wasted for the Veep debate on Thursday? I’m too old for more than one serious drunk in a week and need to decide which to pass out during.

I think Barry has a chance to Flip the Old Miss. He’s pissed off his primary luving audience. And he should portray himself as the sad byproduct of a black man having his way with a white woman and running off. He’s a white man trapped in a mixed race body. The poor guy – it ain’t be his fault.

Plus Walnuts is a senile dick.

Now that McCain “blinking” shows his weakness, I think the next election should be conducted via staring contest. After all, George Bush looked into Putin’s eyes and saw his soul, so he’s qualified…

Norbert September 26, 2008 at 2:48 pm

I would say that with the last few days e.g. the bailout crisis, the failed postpone-the-debate stunt, Palin’s interviews hitting the airwaves, media reactions, and the last few polls to come out, the pressure inside Walnuts’ cardiovascular system must be pretty goddam high. hell, it feels pretty high for me vicariously and I’m just sitting in my pajamas in my parents’ basement, so yeah.

thus I suggest a couple of tweaks to the drinking game:

Walnuts sprays saliva and scrunches up his face = a drink
” says cunt = two drinks
” grips the podium for support and mops his brow = 3 drinks
” grabs his chest = actually stand up and hold your breath for a few seconds, then 5 1/2 drinks
” has stroke = sad (RIP)
Mittens and Huck back in it = champagne!

This is all very amusing, but decades of watching American elections have convinced me that debates have virtually nothing to do with how people vote. Democrats almost always ‘win’ the debates, and then lose the election. Although I don’t recall any ‘meta-debate’ scenarios like this one.

The only thing I know for sure is that the worse Walnuts does in the debate tonight, the higher Palin’s hemline for her debate with Crazy Joe.

[re=110161]tunamelt[/re]: I would vote for anything by Rogue or Dogfish Head. They actually get the maverick thing, unlike McOld. Rouge’s Double Dead Guy is sounding particularly appropriate, methinks…

WALNUTZ is now the “don’t answer yet, you also get this amazing ….” of politicians.

Nice work Rick Schmidt. You are quickly becoming the worst campaign manager in the history of presidential campaigns.

America has become the asshole capital of the world.

If foreigners were allowed to vote for President the Republicans and Democrats would get no votes.
This is the land of the clueless.

Keep electing the same gov’t that keeps telling their stooges “Americans are smart.”
