On March 7th Senator McCain gleefully accepted the endorsement of Pastor John Hagee who happens to be a maniac with a huge following. Scary isn't it. But let's look a little deeper at this cat. Hagee is anti African American, an anti Semite, he hates Muslims, he's also anti-gay and he's an old school chauvinist. Geez who's left? Who does he like? Oh yeah, older straight white guys like himself and ah, John McCain. The interesting part of all of this is that McCain knows full well who and what this man is but welcomed the endorsement with open arms. Naturally this did not sit well with several religious groups among others; and the media ran with it. McCain fired back with,"in no way did I intend for his endorsement to suggest that I in turn agree with all of pastor Hagee's views, which obviously I don't." Well first of all it is not that obvious McCainy. Furthermore if we read in, around and between your lines you are not actually denouncing or rejecting the endorsement. Shame,shame McCainy-Cain. It is understandable that when you're in a political race there are times when you can't pick your allies, they pick you. But there are times, as there should be, when your character does not permit you to accept a less than desirable endorsement. Like for example in the case of Louis Farrakhan's endorsement of Barack Obama. Senator Obama rejected Farrahkan's support publicly and swiftly.
When this axe came down McCain also said, "...I am proud of (Hagee's) spiritual leadership of thousands of people." Proud? Proud like he's your son and he brought you an A on his report card? Strange verbiage McCainy-Cain. But it doesn't end there. McCain wasn't ambushed by the endorsement, he actually sought out the Lunatic's support. On January 29th/2007 the two men sat down and had a secret meeting. The easy math would indicate as follows: secret meeting plus follow up endorsement = Alliance! There is an old adage from the generation before mine that says, "tell me who you travel with and I'll tell you who you are." Need I say more?
Okay just a little more. Here is one of the many kookoo beliefs of McCain's buddy-the guy he is proud of. "...I believe that Hurricane's are acts of God because God controls the heavens. I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God and they were the recipient of the judgment of God." Let's just say that Hagee is on to something. It would follow that the White House, Bush's ranch at Crawford, Chaney's house-wherever it is as it has been removed from google earth-and Rumsfeld's place had better be on hurricane watch...just exactly what color disaster alert that would be I'm not sure. After that Las Vegas had better duck!
Is McCain so stubborn that he will not be told who is friends can be? Is he not smart enough to know that he should distance himself from play-pastor Hagee? Does the endorsement come with so much juice that McCain just can't turn it down? Whatever it is I'm sure Mr.McCain feels he has his reasons for sticking to his guns even if it appears that he's lost his reason!
Senator McCain may be the next President of the United States of America. Is it just me or isn't anybody else worried as to how McCain will be made to repay his lunatic chum for the aforementioned endorsement? Ladies and gentlemen Pastor John Hagee America's new minister of...NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
