Ooooops, some of McSame's true nature leaked out? Did John McCain say "horseshit" (or is it "horse shit", "horse-shit"?) during the debate?

Edit above 9/29: Due to some question via further analysis by bloggers I'm taking a totally neutral stance on this and must give the short lying weasel the benefit of the doubt. Although he did indeed call his wife a foul name and his colleagues other nasty names, he may NOT have said horseshit during the debate, instead, "Of course, of course". There's plenty of other stuff McSame says that is 100% true without muddying the waters with something about which I'm not sure anymore. I don't have high tech equipment to decide this one.


Each time MSNBC put up a split screen of McSame and Obama, (after being hip-no-tyzed by McSame's tie) we saw Wee Johnny was amazingly as tall or taller than Barack. He's seven whole inches shorter (sans shoe lifts) than Obama. Ahhhh, the miracles of technology. Now, why would they need to do that? What purpose did it serve? His podium is up into the frame. Now that's a pile of horse shit we can believe in my friendzz. Very slick.

McCain Seven Inches

(Thanks snabby!)

McCain merely repeated his usual lies and TPs with a grimace or sneer or smirk on his face while Obama spoke. He looked wired, wound up, ready to pop if pushed, which Obama unfortunately didn't do to my satisfaction but it was "okay" for a first debate view by the "nation" of voters.
The debate:

Let's just drag those podiums closer:
Not the Same

A too-close-to-call debate, says the L.A. Times. What? Were they watching the same thing I was? They're apparently blind and deaf. Obama WON! McCain repeats his stump speech talking points over and over again, in particular no new taxes on the wealthy. Too close to call? Obama won't put additional taxes on Americans who earn less that $250,000 a year. That's FAIR! To a millionaire that means nothing, to US out here NOT making up to $250,000 that's very important. We're saddled with their failure to pay their fair share to help this economy.
Debate Transcript from CNN.
McSame continued to mischaracterize Obama's positions. He offered nothing of substance, no plan for middle class America to recover from the devastation of 8 years of GOP rule.

um... on the tallness issue... big-whoop?

How many TV interviews have occurred where they position the cameras just right for the shorter and taller than average subjects being interviewed? All of them.

The only reason they did that was to give a more balanced aesthetic view of both candidates.

Are you actually going to be shallow enough criticize the angle the camera-men chose to film him in?

I'm not defending McCain or his positions, but I would appreciate it that you not make the camera-angle on a candidate a bigger issue than it really is, much as how the McCrap campaign tried to make "Lipstick on a Pig" a controversial statement.

Please, find something better to blog about than this.

Did you check out any of the Tall Tales links I provided? It's not all about his lack of physical stature but also the new heights he has reached in being a total liar. (Aka teller of "tall tales"....)If I have to say "this is humor" it rather defeats the purpose, n'est-ce pas?

Thanks for stopping by. :)

For me, the humor point was lost in translation when the photos drove the point home that he was shorter, or "recompensating" for his lack in height somehow.

I wasn't able to catch the tone of biting sarcasm.
I apologize for my rashness.

I am frequently misunderstood. You're not the first, you won't be the last. It's fine with me. My brand of UK humour ekes out and has a mind of its own.

Biting sarcasm is in the eye of beholder...or not. Fun to one is idiocy to another. And we move on.

Oh, and BTW......

IF you WERE going to defend McCain, what exactly would you choose first? His support of our troops?

I would choose his support of the troops first, albeit that it's a position supported by every Politician.

The very next would be him actually standing up to the Bush administration on all forms of torture against our enemies. At least he acknowledged it.

I can't see much virtue in him after that though.

McSame only gives lip service to supporting the troops.
– Voted AGAINST increasing VA funding by $1.5 billion by closing corporate loopholes. March 2006
– Voted AGAINST providing $430 million to the VA for outpatient care and treatment for veterans. April 2006
- Voted AGAINST an amendment providing $20 billion to the VA’s medical facilities. May 2006
- Voted AGAINST a plan to reduce troop levels in Iraq. July 2007
-Voted AGAINST the Webb amendment calling for adequate troop rest between deployments. Sept. 2007

He says one thing, does another.
I call that lying.

Torture? He and Warner backed out at the last minute and let Bush decide when and where torture could be used under John Yoo's "legal" terms allowing Bush and Dick to torture anyone they like, anywhere they like, but just don't call it waterboarding. Look it up. Bush gets to decide. Comforting thought as he liked to blow up frogs as a child and burn pledges at one of his hazing ritual colleges. He said, "It's no worse than a cigarette burn" and one wonders upon what he based his view. Bar?

I'll give you another chance to name a virtue possessed by John McSame McCain who receives 100% Vet Disability, all his health care taken care of by us, divorced his first wife to marry a younger prettier model, admits to many affairs, crashed four of our airplanes before taking hot dog risks and getting himself shot down, calls his co-workers and peers rotten names, loses his temper.....

Am I missing something?

On the other hand, it makes McCain's head look even bigger and more ego-swollen than it already is. Kind of like The Man in the Moon. He reminds me of the one in the old film Le Voyage dans la lune.

I'm pretty sure he said "horseshit." I can read lips and that's exactly what it looked like.

Doesn't surprise me a bit, he's a bitter old man.

I thought it was real too. However, it turns out Xeni Jardin at Boing Boing was just having some fun, so they say. I don't like being duped but I initially fell for it then scraped the egg off my fur via retraction as soon as I found the source. ;)
What's interesting to note is that it's entirely possible to imagine McCain muttering such a thing under his breath in public after all the rotten things he's said loudly and clearly to his wife and co-workers in front of witnesses galore. It was a logical assumption based on his history. He is NOT a nice man and has a very short fuse.

You're absolutely right, he IS a bitter old man.
