In Good Company


I'd been waiting for someone to bring up the dreaded "B.D." words.

Adam Nagourney of the New York Times, who's part of John McCain's press corps, just did it:

"These days, Mr. McCain sounds less like his old self than Bob Dole, another Republican senator who ran for president in 1996, sounded in the closing days of his campaign — speaking louder or repeating statements that he thinks might be overlooked. 'The American economy is in a crisis!' Mr. McCain said. 'It’s in a crisis!'"

And we all know how that ended for Dole.

Anyone feel like speculating on which slightly embarrassing prescription drug McCain will wind up hawking on television?

I was just thinking the other day how Bob Dole ran, if not a great campaign, at least an honorable one. When he went after Clinton he did so while keeping his integrity in tact. After the election I actually admired the man.

McCain has been a disgrace. Poor judgment, blatant lies, sleazy political tricks, he's just lost any respect he might have gained in his almost three decades of public service.

So sad.

Cialus? Welbutrol? Nah. There's only one choice.

"I'm John McCain, and my wife Cindy sure likes her pills. Big ones, small ones, hundreds a day. Heck she's got five doctors prescribing them for her at any one time! But when she wants the purest, best, pharmacological high she turns to the same drug as America's coolest celebrities and hippest club kids (circa 1999). Not Vicodin or Demerol or Morphine, but Oxycontin.

Life gives you pain, God gives you Oxycontin. It's perfect for boring speeches by your blowhard spouse, family picnics, or just driving the kids to school. Heck you can crush it up and short it when you're just hanging around the house and want a little pick-me-up. Oxycontin is the perfect pseudolegal solution to all your problems. Take it from a Maverick. Take it from John McCain.

Something for ass-grapes?
Or possibly, denture fixative.

Prozac. It's the only way you'll be able to listen to him and Palin without piercing your eardrums.

Is there prescription med that reduces the size of your glands while also reducing your ability to have an erection?

Just a guess.

Speaking of Dole, see him at the RNC. Um, pulled back a little there Bob? WOW.

It freaks me out enough the way most women look after having work done, but it is just CREEPY when men do it. It's hard to watch Biden talk with that super tight forehead and eyes crinkled in the corner.

How vain are these guys?

I think I've just found the funniest thing I've ever seen on youtube.

It's entitled Rednecks from Wasilla:

Hold on to your fucking hats! ha ha ha ah aha aha

Chez said...

Brilliant. It says "satire" so I'll take it at its word -- otherwise we need to nuke Wasilla as quickly as possible.

The T-virus antidote. Or maybe Clioquinoline.

Aricept?

Atlas said...

Those that matter do, those that don't blog.

Restless leg syndrome. He can hark back to his days as a POW, being shackled in a small cell all day. Now, that's what I call restless!

Oh, I think I just crossed the line.

Chez said...

Yes, Atlas -- and those that really don't post stupid comments on blogs.
