Meeting and Eating Pigs

Yesterday Senator John McCain was the guest on Meet the Press. Senator McCain would like to be the next George Bush, oops sorry, the next president of the United States. These were the comments at the conclusion of the interview in which David Gregory sat in as host.

“MR. GREGORY: I mentioned your trip out to Iowa, thinking ahead to 2008. Are you a front-runner?

SEN. McCAIN: I don’t know, but I had the privilege of meeting an 1190-pound pig named Waldo at the Iowa State Fair. It was one of the great fun experiences I’ve had.”

When the president was in Germany he made frequent comments about eating a pig at a pig roast.

McCain was excited about meeting a pig and bush was excited about eating a pig.
What is it with these guys and pigs?

What does a pig wearing lipstick have in common with Bush or McCain? That's easy, they all look stupid, only the pig is actually intelligent.

Well they can't very well throw out the words Iraq and terror any more. Even the neocons are "Cutting and Running" from them now. That's the new word now, I guess. Bring on November, time to get these morons out!!

No, I think you had it right the first time, he wants to move into Bush country. And it's a shame, since at one point I had much respect for him prior to courting the wingnut branch of the GOP.

And the pig got up and slowly walked away."

Hey, it was either this or Lyndon Johnson's 'pig lover' anecdote....

Perhaps the Repugs should consider retiring the elephant and making the pig their symbol.

There are way too many cliches cramming my head right now. I'm on overload.

In all seriousness though, Donnie hit the nail on the head. All of their previous bullet points are now more of a hinderance than a helping. They don't know what to talk about without scaring people.

They better be careful though...

If you lay down with pigs, you wake up smelling like slop...

I had to say one... :-)

I think every one of you owe every pig in this world an apology for associating a fine animal with such riffraff.:)

John McCain: The first mistake we made with that boy was bringing him out of Vietman. He once had a soul....then he sold it to Bush in return for help to be named later.

I like how Dum Dum goes to a country that is responsible for about 5 of the 6 million killings of the Jews and talks about eating pigs. Any Jew who voted or continues to support Dum Dum deserves what he or she gets.

Gawd, I hate Bushitler!

I agree with Gordon- maybe the Pig should be the new GOP mascot....
I know we know about Mad Cow Disease- there isn't a Mad Pig Disease hiding out there that we don't know about - right?

Poor Pigs...I actually like them...just not to eat..and they are actually really smart also ...not like these idiots we have in power..

Seeing how Republicans have been favoring the special interests in their own states, maybe GOP stands for Grand Ole Porkbarrel. And if you like pork, you've gotta like pig.

I am with Future Yesterday! I wouldn't insult a perfectly nice pig by suggesting it was somehow inferior to those... those... see... I can't even come up with a name for them without insulting some critter that deserves better.

Sorry to rain on your parade but I think you been had!

By now, all of you should be aware that things with these guys are rarely if ever the way they seem. While you were drawn to concentrate your focus on a pig the real action took place with the concept of BIG that was recently discovered by Junior in the G8 meeting in Moscow. To Junior's never ending surprise it turned out that China is a big country. "Hey Tony, It takes this guy 12 hrs to get home...China is a damn big country".

So, my conclution is that, McCain didn't see a pig but he saw BIG instead.

McCain did have a brilliant prescription for getting out of the war.He said we need to win. He needs to wash bodies of young men and women before they are put in the bags. Jerk.

It's actually a pretty deliberate strategy and I think we are all smart enough to see what is going on. Bush made his way in the world of Texas and national politics through pretending to be a folksy, down-to-earth guy, despite a background even more privileged than the "elitist" John Kerry. McCain is now cultivating that same audience, and don't fool yourself, they're sucking it down like a can of Bud.

Now McCain has run several times for the GOP presidential nomination, but he gets that nomination in '08, and don't make any mistakes about that, either. Sure, there's Giuliani talk and there is Frist talk, but that is crap and they don't have a chance. The fix has been in since shortly before McCain wrapped his arms around George Bush in that famous picture and let Bush rub his flacid member on his leg. McCain symbolically bent over then, but it was for one reason and one reason only: there was a deal. Mark my words because as sure as pigeons shit on statues, there was a deal. The deal was that if McCain agreed to bend over, Bush's backers would give McCain a reach-around for '08. The fix is in. Don't even think about them other guys because they don't have a prayer.

Now McCain has been in the process of getting himself ready for 2008 since 2004 and I knew that the deal had not only been cut, but sealed and approved by the shady men in the background when Faith of My Fathers was being promoted. Get ready for more of McCain making his play for the "heartland", then see John promote several major pieces of legislation in 2007, and they'll be good, solid, centrist legislation, too. And they will get a helluva lot more ink than, say HR 550.

Mark my words. If I am wrong, throw them back at me and call me on it, but I don't think I will be wrong. It's McCain in '08.
