I took a piss and found a purple mark on my penis. I have taken a blood test, and the results are on the way to check for HIV, but I can’t wait. What do you think it is? Did I just masturbate too hard? I did just yesterday.
I know my political bent is a sharp, 45+ degrees to the left, but I had long admired McCain, until this election. Part of it was the POW story, part of it was because he went to Annapolis, part of it was sympathy for the smear done to him and his family by Bush and Rove in 2000, and part of it was the media story of him being, well, a maverick.
McCain’s conduct in this campaign has destroyed nearly all of the goodwill I had towards him. I couldn’t reconcile his flagrant bullshit with the straight-shooting, honorable man I had long believed him to be. I tried to chalk it up to the corruption of politics, but that only went so far.
I just read the linked Rolling Stone article. This is a tremendous, well-researched and sourced article about John McCain’s character and fitness to lead the country. And it scared the everloving shit out of me. Particularly the quotes and information from John Dramesi, a man whose character simply cannot be called into question.
It is long - 10 pages - but utterly riveting and a must-read.
