John McCain

Perot Lives!

|

So John McCain's plan to fix Social Security is to be more bipartisan, and his plan to fix Medicare is to create a commission. Glad we cleared that up.

  1. The first election Perot ran in I had just turned 18. I had not yet discovered libertarianism but I knew something was wrong with both major parties. Bush had broken his promise not to raise taxes and I did not trust Clinton on anything. I voted for Perot.

  2. Squirrels have screwed the debate thread. I can’t post and fucking Dwayne Mayor’s name shows up in the comment box.

    Anybody else think the deflation is going to take energy issues off the table soon? Except maybe as a jobs program/boondoggle.

  3. I still can’t comment in the debate thread so here:

    Damn Weigel, did you take some objective, insightful journalist pills tonight?
    Or did sarah Palin turn off the mind rays.
    I mean that as a compliment.Good work so far.

  4. Inflation is more like it. Oil is going down in price because China and India are not consuming as much oil as was predicted. Inflation, not deflation is going to be a major issue with this bailout. Any restriction in the money supply via private banks will be more than compensated by our wonderful Fed. We will pay for this bailout in spades.

  5. BTW, I was also having trouble posting on the debate thread.

  6. How many fucking commissions has McCain proposed at this point?

    Translated into English, “We’ll have a commission,” is McCain-speak for, “I don’t want to take responsibility for proposing any reform in this area, because if I talk about cutting anything specific someone will get mad at me, but I have to say something in response to this question, so I’ll offer these empty bullshit syllables because that’s my idea of straight talk.”

    This is similar to McCain’s idiomatic expression, “I will cut waste, fraud and abuse” which is not only McCain-speak but also GOP-speak for, “I don’t want to name any specific cuts I’ll make, because the Democrats will say that I’m mean if I do, and I don’t really intend to cut spending anyway but increase it across the board, but I have to promise to cut something and no one likes waste or fraud of abuse, so I guess I’ll say that and hope that no one realizes that lying scumbag Republicans like myself have been saying the same cliche for 20 years.”

    And SIV is right, the debate thread is fucked. And who the hell is this Dwayne guy?

  7. I cant c teh TV rite nao, IM at werk. Hoo iz winnin?

  8. Dwayne is an African American liberal troll.

    Ironic,they are trying to inflate but it isn’t going to work if wages don’t follow.

  9. Credit destruction is beating the ever loving shit out of monetary creation.

  10. The main debate liveblog comments thread is fubar, at least for me

  11. Both their answers are so awful so far I think I just created a green job.

  12. I still can’t comment in the debate thread damn it!

  13. McCrazy’s health care plan was written by the HC lobby.

    Obama’s will bancrupt us.

    Catch 22?

    Oh well, what the hell (as he flys plane into mountain).

  14. I predict stagflation. Teh Cartr yeers r bak.

  15. Dwayne is an African American liberal troll.

    Actually, I’m a half-Anglo, half-Italian Christian socialist. Just thought I’d clear that up, SIV.

  16. “So John McCain’s plan to fix Social Security is to be more bipartisan, and his plan to fix Medicare is to create a commission. Glad we cleared that up.”

    Yeah and Obama will never buck the Democrat party’s sacred cow of entitlements so the can will just keep being kicked down the road until the whole thing collapses under it’s own weight.

  17. Hey Ironic, We must have been living in a parallel universe. I did the same thing. So I’ll just re-post your post…

    “The first election Perot ran in I had just turned 18. I had not yet discovered libertarianism but I knew something was wrong with both major parties. Bush had broken his promise not to raise taxes and I did not trust Clinton on anything. I voted for Perot.”
