Twitchy McBush came to OKC with his pathetic paw grasping for bribes in a fundraiser for a whopping $2300.00 dollars per plate. Best be some damn fine vittles is all I have to say. Simultaneously, local Democrats had an event for $2.30 a plate, featuring hotdogs and whistle fruit (beans). Sounded more my speed, so I fired up the pickup truck in search of camaraderie in a red state.
Lot’s of cars in the lot meant a good showing. Probably 200 people or more showed up on very short notice. Jeri Askins was there, and was looking very good. After a brief visit with the vittles, it was time to get to business. Some lady grabbed the microphone and set the tone by requesting the song “Celebration” as a conga line formed.
She reminded everyone in the room that the worse case scenario was Bush would soon be out of office. Indeed it was something to celebrate.
Frosty Troy, the featured guest speaker, was his usual snarky and elbow-throwing self, claiming McCain is not senile, but he can hide his own Easter eggs. Troy ran through a list of how horrendous a McCain Presidency would be, dispelling the “Bush lite” frame some are hanging on the Senator from Arizona. He drew the conclusion that McCain is Cheney to the nth degree.
For my part, I felt he pulled his punches on McCain, failing to point out his misogynist tendencies, like when he called his wife a trollop and a c*nt, or noting he graduated 5th from the bottom at Annapolis. He didn’t have a kewl nickname like “Maverick” because he was known as “punk” and “McNasty”. Or how he crashed up lot’s of planes, killing American servicemen and costing the taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars before getting shot down in Vietnam.
Further, our candidate will not run against McCain, but against the media, because as Chris Matthews said, “We are his base.” It takes a huge amount of money to cut through that type of institutional bias.
Here in Oklahoma, it will be doubly hard, so dig deep Democrats, or things just get worse from here.
