I donated today.
Nah. Not blood. I’m a gay male, remember?
I donated a few bucks to John McCain today. And you know why?
I donated because this “hit piece” in the New York Times was the shoddiest, slimiest piece of so-called reporting I’ve seen in a while. This garbage actually didn’t even deserve the title of “journalism” even though the bar for journalism has been lowered substantially in the last couple of decades.
Go read the piece. I won’t even to bother to recount it here except to say that the NYT threw out innuendos about McCain having an affair with a female lobbyist a decade ago without the slightest bit of proof. They didn’t even claim that McCain had an affair. They just threw out some buzzwords about a lobbyist that would lead one to assume that “something might have happened.” It’s disgusting yet predictable.
When you have the likes of Rush Limbaugh actually excoriating this rubbish, you know something is wrong. I love Rush, but I know it hurt him to defend McCain. Of course, he also admonished John for getting too close with the MSM. I can’t disagree there.
It doesn’t matter who would have claimed the GOP mantle. You can count on the NYT to be there to attempt to sink them. For those of you who have doubts, be assured – the NYT and their ilk are out to destroy the GOP. John McCain was naive to assume otherwise. Maybe he has learned his lesson now.
In the meantime, this BS from the Times has enraged a lot of conservatives and made many of them sympathetic to McCain. If the point of this crap-of-an-article was to turn public sentiment against the Senator, then they have failed miserably. Wonder why newspaper readership is declining?
