    You’re all class, Morning’s Minion.

    At least you’ve given up the facade of intelligent gadfly, in favor of this. it is much more honest of you to display your petty and shallow small-mindedness.

    Of course, I won’t be voting for either one of those walking disasters. But then, I’m not wedded to some modern or post-modern ideology and nicknaming my spouse “catholicism”.

    Really? That’s humour? Wisecracks about torture? Just goes to show there’s not a millimeter of difference between a dedicated Democrat and a dedicated Republican.

    Both traded their humanity for, well, something.

    You stay classy, Vox-Nova!

  • Franklin,

    McCain exploited (used his) POW status (as an excuse) for everyhthing these past 2 months. I thus have no qualms with what I said.

    I don’t have a caption, but when I look at McCain, in my head I hear Chubby Checker singing, “Let’s twist again like we did last summer! Let’s twist again like we did last year!”

    Now that’s an awesome display of charity at work, Mark. of course you have no qualms with what you said. He is the other, and so you are not bound be evangelical counsels.

    If that is what you call a life, I’ll stick with what I have.

    Did a McCain supporter make the same objection I did? Shocking!!! I missed that.

    I wouldn’t vote for either party’s war-mongering pro-death candidate, as I am trying to take my Faith’s teachings seriously.

    “In their defense, the Republican delegates insisted that at the time they had no idea that Senator McCain was a flesh-eating zombie…”

    This is a great picture. I am sure we all have moments where we don’t look our best, luckily for us, with politicians there are people there to capture the image and provide us all with much needed comic relief! Great prizes too, I am sure the 200 Obama posts would be super extra special 🙂

    I have to say the torture caption was a low-blow, poor taste etc. Mark from your prior comments you don’t seem like a mean person, it is just the election season putting everybody in a lousy mood, I am sure. The nicest people I know, Democrats and Republicans, have all been waking up mad at the world lately. I am sure looking back you will regret this. Unfortunately I too have said many unkind things recently. It will be great when all of this is over.

    Joking about torture is now just poor taste? I need to offer an apology to some republican classmates then.

    I still say it is a disgusting betrayal of your humanity. Not an inch of difference between the major parties. Always ready to excuse their own bad behaviour and villify those evil villians on the other side.

    Franklin, are you equally disgusted with Knuckle Dragger’s abortion comment?

    They’re not remotely equivalent; they’re actually quite opposite, in fact. Making fun of Obama for his love of abortion is akin to making fun not of people who experienced torture, but of the torturers themselves.

    Actually, I make it a practise not to read comments from commenters with psuedonyms like “knuckledragger”.

    Now having gone back to read his comment, I simply must concur with S.B.

    The difference is glaring to anyone who has not sold their soul one of the various death-cults.

    Oh, and who are you quoting above, Micheal?

    I never called him an American hero. He’s certainly not Admiral Stockdale.

    Although Obama has heaped just such praise upon McCain.

    Don’t read the Bible then. Or many great documents of church history. While I don’t agree with much which is said by knuckledragger, one thing I do find wrong: ad hominems based upon the fact someone is using a name other than their own.

    What ad hominem? You do know what ad hominem means, don’t you?

    There are only so many hours in a day. I have a family, and an education, and a career to attend to. Unlike some, I can’t spend umpteen hours a day perusing the bowels of the internet. There have to be some heuristics to separate the wheat from the chaff on blogs, and not reading comments by psuedonyms, especially psuedonyms like knuckledragger, is one I have found useful. Now you may argue that I miss some gems in the process (an argument you have already undermined), but that argument is not the same as ad hominem.

    I don’t reject his statements because I disapprove of his name, I completely miss his statements because I filter past them.

    Man, for some preening intellects, some of you Vox-Novans prove yourself incapable of getting through freshman year at a state University.
