The Hard and Painful Truth.

McCain is a skrull

My friends, the evidence is overwhelming. From his about face on commemorating Martin Luther King Day as a national holiday (he voted against it in ’83), to his transition from principled opponent of torture to apologist for the Bush veto to preserve “enhanced interrogation techniques”, from being against the Bush tax cuts for the rich to making permanent said tax cuts, from maverick McCain to corporate shill, the love-lamb of lobbyists and a fool on the hill: John McCain is a Skrull.

It’s quite true that this would be warmonger xenophobe-in-chief generally blends in with fellow republicans. At a time when the grand old party is rent with rifts between social, fiscal, and restroom conservatives, when bigots and bigwigs wag what remains of their talking point tails, salvation could only come from above. In the form of a Skrull invasion. And who better to shoulder the party of white mens’ burden than John McCain’s skrull? My friends, the answer is no one.

And so the Skrull Talk Express comes to town. Only earth’s mightiest democrats can save us. Unless they too have something to hide?

    You think McCain’s been a Skrull since 1983? Hmm. I’d probably go with more recently, sometime in the last eight years, maybe.

    Also, for the benefit of your readers, here’s some HTML code for folks to display a McCain is a Skrull badge on their websites. I hope this works:

    Argh, I misread the original post. It was the about-face on the 1983 vote that tipped you off, not the vote itself. Sigh. It’s early in the morning as I type these things.

    Thanks so much for the code, more incentive to consider migrating away from a single column blog.

    The about face happened yesterday, on the 40th anniversary of the assassination of MLK, when McCain’s skrull opportunistically decided to speak in Memphis.

    Wow, crisp and clean relaunch of your blog! nice! This was my first encounter with Skrulls, btw, and I am afraid! But I am grateful that it is MLK 40th year commemoration day – might help to prevent MCCain.

    It’s never too early to suspect that everyone you know might be a skrull. This is my first foray into web paranoia. How am I doing?

    Thanks for the positive feedback on the new look. I really wanted a sidebar that I could place widgets into. Unfortunately, neither the code for the guantanamo banner, nor the code for the McCain skrull banner seems to be approved by the text widget. Sigh.

    I was going to try to work around it by uploading the banners as images, but the new wordpress dashboard has hidden the import feature. Scratch head, longer sigh…

    The banner code might work better if you replaced the “curly quotes” that WordPress added with straight quotes (change them in TextEdit if need be?).

    Dude, you just rule. It’s as simple as that. Thanks!

    Reminder: Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they are not out to get you!

    The Republicans are infiltrating and breaking down the Democratic Party from within. They were having a Civil War and the pro-Obama (pro-Registration) party has one. While the Secret Avengers lead by Hilary Clinton (Captain America) are losing. VOTE FOR CLINTON! VOTE FOR AMERICA!
