No End To The Incompetence

Rush Limbaugh has talked about how John McCain has been unable to hit "hanging curveball" issues out of the park, so yesterday, McCain was handed the issue equivalent of tee ball, and… he hit the tee,

Joe Biden, running off at the mouth again as usual had just guaranteed that the young and inexperienced Obama would be tested with an international crisis within six months of entering office. Let me repeat that… Biden guaranteed that Obama would face an international crisis within the first six months which would be a test of his mettle.

Of course, Biden also assured those to whom he was speaking that Obama would come through it just fine, but that's hardly the point unless you like crises? It wasn't McCain and the Republicans who were talking about the dangers of electing someone who has no experience whatsoever, it was Obama's own running mate.

Furthermore, it was immediately clear that McCain wasn't likely to face such a test.

Past tests have included such things as the Iranian hostage crisis, the first World Trade Center bombing, 9/11, and the Cuban missile crisis. Of course, that one was only a crisis if you were concerned that there might be survivors afterward if the worst happened.

So last week it was Joe the Plumber doing McCain's job for him, and this week, Biden showed that he really is McCain's friend… and yet McCain again fumbled, if you'll pardon the mixed metaphor.

Speaking at a rally after Biden had made his comment, McCain in his haste and stupidity, not once but twice, attributed the comment to Obama himself which resulted in two cringing moments for those in the know, not to mention that it destroyed impact and momentum, and fed doubts about his lucidity.

What's the big deal though, isn't it close enough for government work? Still, just once before November 4th, I'd like to be able to used the word "deftly."

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

    He (Biden) is setting the stage. When something happens on Obama's watch, it won't be B.O.s fault, those silly kids are just "testing" him. It's no big deal. They made a huge deal out of the "failed Bush policies" after 9-11. They don't want the same treatment. The truth is that we are vulnerable the first year of any new president and the bad guys know it.

  2. TedWest says:

    With Obama's limp-wristed response to most issues, he's especially vulnerable, This puts it in better perspective.

  3. Darcy says:

    That really is frightening.We are in big trouble. People are going to vote for this guy no matter what. Check this out.

  4. TedWest says:

    Absolutely shocking. And this makes a very good chaser for that audio

  5. Darcy says:

    It reminds me of the idiot jurors on the first O.J. Simpson trial.

  6. TedWest says:

    They just featured that audio on Barry Young's show on KFYI (available on the Net). They did it without comment, but afterward, they talked about how people only hear what they want to hear, and I've found over the years, and you've seen it here, and that's impossible to combat. You just have to flush 'em and hope they don't represent a larger block of idiots.

  7. Darcy says:

    From what the polls show, they absolutely DO represent a larger block of idiots.

  8. TedWest says:

    I'd like to say that I fear you're right, but I can't. Because I know you're right. I don't know if you caught Mr. Mensa who rolled through here a few months back, but he seemed to think that idiocy was the opposite of intelligence. I tried to disabuse him of that notion, but I couldn't. I think my mistake was that I used him as the example. So he proceeded to disabuse himself.

  9. Darcy says:

    LOL — I must have missed him but they seem to be a dime a dozen so I'm sure there will be a second chance 🙂
