John McCain Fucks Up Again

|

Hey, remember that wonderful campaign-finance thing that was going to end world hunger and cure all diseases but instead just gave us the same old Soros-funded crap in a new bag?

Well, the miserable failure who brought us that miserable failure has done it again: a 'compromise' in which Democrats retain the 'right' to the filibuster, and the Senate finally manages to vote on three - just three! - judicial candidates. Someone ought to explain to McCain that in a compromise, both sides get something! This isn't compromise, this is the lunatic-fringe-anti-democratic-tinfoil-hat-crowd winning, flat out.

A democracy requires voting, and it requires that all involved agree to abide by the outcome of the vote. Suing for a recount is not democratic. Permanently stalling to prevent the vote is not democratic. Maybe someday the democrats will spend some of their soft-money donations on something useful, and buy a fucking clue.

Once More, With Feeling

Seen this?

So the question is: mistake, or attempt to rewrite history? That's two repetitions down...

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed -- if all records told the same tale -- then the lie passed into history and became truth. 'Who controls the past' ran the Party slogan, 'controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.'"
"62400 repetitions make one truth."
