Flip Flop Flip Flop

It's hard to believe that just four short years ago the Rethugs were crowing about John "I Was for It Before I Was Against It" Kerry being a flip flopper.

Grampaw Johnny McCain said over the weekend that "this election is about trust and trusting people's word and, unfortunately, apparently on several items, Senator Obama's word cannot be trusted."

Pot, meet Kettle.
Pot: "Hi, Kettle. You're black!"

Grampaw McCain, the flag bearer for the Rethug party, doesn't really have a patent on "the truth", and, as my favorite Talking Head, Keith Olbermann, sees it, McCain has been a stellar performer in no fewer than thirty major flip-flops since 2000.

At this rate he ought to try out for the Barnum and Bailey Circus -- Floppy the Clown has nothing on McCain, and Grampaw Shakey is gonna need a new gig after election day. The only reason the Wicked Witch of the West (aka Cindy McCain) is sticking with the doddering loser is so she can be Firstest Lady, and when he loses (and loses Big Time), she's going to drop him faster than an addiction to pain pills.

Which Cindy is an expert on, so it'll be interesting to see the "compare and constrast" essay that should be required when she finally pulls the plug on Grampaw...
