That Son of a Bitch John McCain is at it again. In fact, for the remainder of this post, please note that when I say TSOBJM, that's who I'm referring to. My brother in law Shannon (who's blog has been MIA for too long, you pussy) for some reason really likes TSOBJM. For some reason, he thinks that TSOBJM is the real face of the Republican Party, or at least where the Republican Party belongs. At one point in time a while ago (probably 2000ish) I agreed with him. However, TSOBJM is doing more and more fucked up shit that is pissing me off to no end.
The first time he really got my goat was with the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Bill... otherwise known as the Incumbent Protection/Free Speech Destruction Bill. That of course is old news. Now TSOBJM is at it again... this time trying to pass a Mini-Kyoto (H/T to Daily Pundit):
Hey TSOBJM! I'm talking to you! There is a reason why even Clinton didn't put Kyoto to the Senate to be ratified! It will destroy our economy for no good reason. The amount of emissions that will be stopped by your Kyoto are so piddly as to only delay things for maybe 5 years, and your bill is even smaller. In the meantime, the world economy will tank because of Kyoto... so there is absolutely no reason to drag us down with it.
Now then... if you want to even consider my vote for President... get this straight. Caving to environmental whackjobs now and then does not make you a "moderate" no matter how much the media decides to slap you with that title. Moderate means you vote for smaller government, more personal freedom, and not caving to far right Christian whackjobs. Understand? You have 3 years to start showing me you understand before I forgive you for the campaign finance reform debacle. The clock is ticking.
Editor's Note: Can you tell I was a little pissed off when I wrote this? Honestly TSOBJM gets me so pissed because I expected more from him. He truly disappoints me because I once really liked him.
