Hypocrisy, another word for Republicans

There's nothing more pathetic than watching John McCain thump his sunken chest in the hope of making it sound like a war drum over the conflict between Russia and Georgia. Leaving aside this:

"McCain's campaign strategist Randy Scheunemann was a lobbyist for Georgia until recently, and remained part of Orion Strategies until May 15. OS had signed a $2 mn. deal to provide "strategic advice" to the Georgian government." read more

It is also pathetic that he talks about invading sovereign nations being wrong somehow when other countries do it, but okay when America does it and invents lies to justify it.

"President Bush committed an impeachable offense by ordering the CIA to to manufacture a false pretense for the Iraq war in the form of a backdated, handwritten document linking Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda, an explosive new book claims." read more

What are they going to make the poor stooge do next? Justify torture? Oh, wait a minute. He already has.

"It's a mighty fine line to walk. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) opposes torture. But when the Senate held a vote yesterday that would effectively prevent the CIA from employing torture by restricting interrogation techniques to those under the Army Field Manual, he voted against it." read more

And in a very telling sign that the Republican party is completely devoid of any kind of platform that would appeal to anyone but the more extreme wingnuts that makes up their base, the Swiftboat Losers are back. Way to say we ain't got nothing to offer the American people so we're just going to fling shit.
