A Cool Hand At The Tiller

Last night, during the debate, John McCain said "we need a cool hand at the tiller." Hmmm. People who know him say he has a disturbing record of recklessness and dishonesty. John McCain is a man who has consistently put his own advancement above all else, a man willing to say and do anything to achieve his ultimate ambition: to become commander in chief, ascending to the one position that would finally enable him to outrank his four-star father and grandfather.



I don't want the McCain/Palin team anywhere NEAR the White House. We must act decisively November 4th. In Ohio, you can already vote. Go DO it.

I know - I couldn't believe he had the nerve to refer to himself as being the one with a cool hand on the tiller. Obama is the one who has the cool hand.

Lulu Maude said...

Thanks for this post. I hadn't thought about the Dubya-like obsession with outdoing Daddy.

Hmmmm.

Border Explorer said...

Whew, Diva, I never thought of that: McPOW as Commander in Chief outranking his pappy and grandpappy. Good thinking! An unhappy little boy inside finally making good.

The incidences repeatedly recounted on the vid show me there is an unhappy kid (or untamed "id" if you're Freudian) inside the man.

Randal Graves said...

Wasn't that the late, great Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke? I don't remember seeing McPOW in that film.

Excellent point about the outranking thing. We've already seen this with Chimpy and Bush the Smarter.

Republican men, lay off the Oedipus, alright? Go read My Pet Goat or something.

Maui Girl, Obama is quite cool. McCain, not so much. I am convinced he's got untreated PTSD.

Lulu, I hadn't really either until I read that article, and yes, it's clearly a whole Republican Male thing about "Mine's bigger than yours, pappy, so there." I wish they'd do it in the privacy of their family estate instead of dragging the rest of us into it.

BE, unhappy kid or untamed id, it still boils down to him being the wrong guy answering the phone at 2 AM.

Randal, yes, that was Paul Newman. And no, McPOW was nowhere in that film. But in truth, when he speaks, "What we have here is a failure to coMUnicate."

How about that closing line in the Video--
Do I trust him with the button?

No.

Any way you look at it, John McCain is going to blow
were he given the opportunity to be in office.
Let's not go there!

No Mccain. Nowhere. Nothing. Nada. NO!
Thank you for your postings. I am reading them daily now.

Spartacus said...

Okay...the next time someone refers to McCain as a war hero, respond that you can't be a hero if your captured and squeal. So, tell, Randal, my favorite Ohioan next to Chrissy Hinde, what the f*ck are you waiting for?

DivaJood said...

Fran, I don't trust him with the button, nor do I trust him with the Treasury Department, nor Social Security, nor Health Care - you get my drift.

Swallowtail, thank you. I appreciate it.

Spartacus, you like Chrissy over Randal? The brilliant Campaign Manager? Hmmmm. BTW, did you know that McCain was a POW?

Randal Graves said...

Hell, I like Chrissy over me. New Pretenders album, too. Which I haven't heard. Has anyone? Thumbs up, down?

Hey boss, you've been tagged.

Utah Savage said...

Randal tagging your boss could get you fired, or is that your plan. Slacker! You don't want to run a campaign, you want to write about Pastry????

DivaJood said...

Utah, I think Randal intends that the eleven items be part of the campaign platform. We are shaky in that arena.

Utah Savage said...

The hell you say Diva, Randal just wants to change the subject. Cause he got nothin. Am I getting that Palin drop the g's at the end of words thing down?

DivaJood said...

Utah, you are definately gettin the dropin of the "g" down. I can't fire Randal, though, because I would be without guidance and then we'd all be in trouble.

Distributorcap said...

i would be cindy has to remind him to flush -

Stone Free said...

you really shouldn't cut and paste exactly from the rolling stone story and make it appear that the words are your own. you are clearly an inferior blogger.

DivaJood said...

Dcap, flush AND put the seat down.

Stone Free, wow, and you would know because your own blog is so well written. Wait. You don't have ANY posts. Troll.
