Mr Arizona Republican Senator John McCain may be the oldest contender for the Presidency in American history, but he is no slouch. Indisputably now he brings to bear the resourceful optimism of a former latemodern America, on these our first crop of postmodern woes. That mood of confidence of the 1930s and the 1950s may not therefore be as dead as a passenger pigeon. Witness the offer yesterday of a three hundred million dollar government prize, to whomever can come up with a really effective battery for electric-powered cars:
As far as this all goes, it is in fact distinctly cheering stuff, indeed it is heinleinian, and it has a warmhearted old man’s actual affectionate eye on tomorrow. It also cannily provides for the emotional needs of boobies, to be assured that they can “plan” to keep on texting themselves to death at eighty miles per hour. Plus for the whole foreseeable future, too….
Now of course there is also lots “wrong” with it all, especially if one is a Democrat of the uncritical “Our Great Two-Party System” school of organized fraud.
There is also the fundamental structural problem of yet another “government prize.” Such an initiative should have long since been completed on its own merits, and long since too by a bloated and, as matters now stand, wholly future-useless petrochemical industry. That — timely done — would have been intelligent capitalism indeed.
Mind you I wrote capitalism.
So by definition (“intelligent” I also wrote) this could not have been done in any case by such an “industry” as this. Monopoly Big Oil like Big Agchem mainly farms government prizes all of its own, and has been gouging on the aspargus for many years. Such as free armies to fight its options in Mesopotamia. So it stands to reason of course that these hogs all now will be struggling at this new, small, McCain trough, to spew out on us with biting squeals their own “new” competing batteries (long held back), to recharge the 2008 presidential race. Hence this token McCain affirmative-action prize, for incompetence.
The other thing wrong is that Mr McCain is both nominally a Republican and yet, as far as this writer is concerned, he is certainly no constitutional conservative.
The objective fact of course is that American constitutionalism is the only legitimate basis for an authentic Amercan conservatism. And not the NeoCon swindle. But in any case, Mr McCain is dragged under ahead of time by the flossy foul failure of eight years of that excessively zionistic so-called “conservativism,” wedded to the slovenly wealth and greedy constructions in a waterless desert, by the brainless bitchy Sons of Saud.
Hence to keep the non-semitic sonsofbitches at home in line, Yahoo outland misbegotten RV hicks all foodstamped and “Born Again,” Mr McCain’s cabal at least recognizes tacitly the stupidity of a trailercourt public hagridden with Chosen People-envy, and for whom GOP seniors’ not-well-hidden contempt — if not Mr McCain’s — is surely obvious:
The antecedents of the, alas, “realistic” Mr Black are doubtless “New Cunt” as the French would say, sniggering among themselves — but I frankly don’t have the stomach to bother anymore today with any of this un-American GOP horror and leave it all to you, gentle reader. In closing, I would only add here that I regard Mr McCain in his own terms as something close to an American Worthy. And, I wish to God he would just give it up.
Who then should be the GOP standardbearer?
Well, whatever would be wrong with Mr Huckabee after all?
A Christian conservatism is of course not the worst thing that could happen to our America writ large and as we truly are [Emmett Smith ‘abd al-‘Abru is Muslim — BW] — and, above all, the GOP themselves positively need to have their consciences roundly awakened from the coma of lies and stealing of the past eight years, and their guilty faces thrust firmly in to the filth.
