OK. Usually this site stays clear of politics because it’s just so darn ugly. And there’s so much lying, pandering, obfuscation, mealy-mouthing, hyperventilating and just plain spinning that its’ too much to keep up with.
But the more I watch Sen. Joe LIE-berman jockeying for the kissing-spot closest to McCain’s ass, and hear him burbling Republican talking points on TV, the harder it gets to keep the following prediction to myself:
Based on all his right-wing rhetoric (e.g., bombing Iran, Obama being a Marxist, Obama being the Hamas candidate) and his constant stumping as McCain’s “answer man” and officially joining the McCain campaign, acting as an apologist for Pastor Hagee, his willingness to appear at the GOP convention, and campaigning for GOP candidates in his home state, bla bla bla…
I WILL GO OUT ON A LIMB AND BE THE FIRST TO PREDICT THAT IF THE REPUBLICANS LOSE CONTROL OF THE SENATE, JOE LIEBERMAN WILL JOIN THE GOP. (AND THERE’S BETTER THAN A 50/50 CHANCE HE WILL ANYWAY.) Let the recall petition begin!
(And for the record I am a registered independent and I wish someone would please tell Bill Clinton to sit down and shut the F*K up. The whole victimology rhetoric kept his ass from getting impeached because it was basically true. As far as Hillary goes… not so much. She is her own worst enemy where truth, transparency, and authenticity are concerned.)
OK. That’s it for politics… for a while.
Next up… we will be exploring the issues of stealth and disinformation and how they are destroying the PR profession from within.
(Happy belated Memorial Day)
