It's hard to be consistent these days . . .

. . . especially when you're a Republican pundit. I present to you the Video of the Week courtesy of Jon Stewart and The Daily Show:

I shouldn't be commenting right now because I'm so exhausted. This is what we get to see and hear for the next two months. You can complain about the conservative biased networks, but there's just as many or more of the liberal biased networks out there too. Both of them will be in spin cycle and we're going to get spun right up with them. In the end we have to pick through the facts not the spin and make a choice on who has the bottom line character, life and work experience, wisdom and intelligence to be able to lead this country. I'm choosing McCain because I believe he has these qualities. It has nothing to do with Palin though I do like her.
If you saw his speech last night, no it wasn't electrifying but what
he said particularly in the last 12 minutes was incredibly moving. I'm tired of the bickering between the two parties and the hate words. McCain has been in the Senate for a long time and he wants to cross party lines to come up with solutions and he doesn't care who gets the credit. He called himself a servant to the American people and that's good enough for me.

I laughed my fool head off over the "Dick Morris is a lying sack of shit" line.

You know, anonymous, I could get behind what you said if McCain and his running mate actually shared the same ideals. Or at least went over their speeches together to make sure they didn't totally contradict each other.

If McCain didn't care who got the credit and wanted to cross party lines, he could have gone with Lieberman instead of bowing to the puppet masters and choosing Palin.

Anonymous: As I've said, I have no issues with people like you who've given this serious thought and choose the viewpoint opposite mine. I have no issues with voting for McCain/Palin because you believe in what they stand for, or you think they support the direction you wish to see the country go.

Simply put, I'm on the opposite side. I'm not caught up in media spin. I get my political news from a variety of sources, both liberal leaning (NY Times, NPR, Daily Show) and conservative (WSJ, Fox and I even listen to Hannity and Rush a few times a week). None of those sources influence my views - they may support them in various ways, but I've held the same political views for many years and doubt I'll change - certainly not for this election.

I find it annoying when either party lies or "flip flop" to suit their own interests, and they both do it. I know that. (I also really like, which holds all the candidates' feet to the fire).

Thanks for you comments.

not hannah - thank you. I agree about McCain in regards to Lieberman. I agree, that would have been a brave choice - a maverick's choice. And I've heard it's who he really wanted, but in the end he bowed to party pressure. Maverick? Me thinks not. At least not anymore.
