McCain Calls Rightwingsparkle "Cunt."

In her dreams

OK, OK - this is an obvious Photoshop and, to the best of my knowledge, Senator John McCain did not call Rightwingsparkle a trollop or a cunt. Would it be irresponsible to speculate?

However, as recently reported in the Raw Story, Sparkie's love object did use the word "cunt" in an angry retort to the wealthy, anorexic, brain-damaged, drug-addicted woman for whom he dumped his first wife. He also used the more quaint aphorism, "trollop:"
The Real McCain” by Cliff Schecter, which will arrive in bookstores next month, reports an angry exchange between McCain and his wife that happened in full view of aides and reporters during a 1992 campaign stop…

In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair and said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, and he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days.

Well, that's just going too far, don't you think? As Sparkie herself said about Randi Rhodes (scroll, combining two Sparkie quotes from the same thread): "My standard is not cussing. It is calling a former first lady a f**king wh*re. Yeah, a bit different than just cussing, wouldn't you say??? ...What prominent Republicans have said such vicious things?"


Heh. Indeed.

“There’s Adam Clymer – major league asshole for the New York Times.”
George Bush, on the campaign trail, 2000

“Go fuck yourself.”*
Dick Cheney, to Patrick Leahy (D-VT) on the Senate floor

“Vaffanculo.”**
Antonin Scalia, to a reporter and accompanied by the appropriate gesture

* - English for 'vaffanculo'
** - Italian for 'Go fuck yourself' or 'Go stick it in your ass.'

She'll never admit that McSaint is anything but that. Even on her chron.com blog, she excuses any points made by commenters about how McSaint left his first wife.

I don't know why I used my own name the other night. Usually a use different names until she either figures out or suspects it might be me and then she deletes everything. I tend to drive her a bit crazy.

Kathleen is just into politics because of the smut. But you know that. She's also big on the high school level popularity thing. I enjoy poking her every chance I get.

You are a little more on the rough side than I am, but I think we could put something together.

Oh, and my link goes back to my blogger blog, not the wordpress blog, but you can get there that way, too.

Hi, Mich

I sent an email to your old blogger addy - let me know when you get it, or send me a better addy to use.

Sparkie is a classic rightwing authoritarian follower, as defined by Robert Altemeyer (see my blogroll - 'Fighting the Good Fight,' he's at the top). As such, her Big Daddy of the moment can do no wrong. Ever.

Anywhoozle, poking through your old blogger site was like strolling down memory lane. Texas Dave! What a tool. JD! Psycho.

Etc.

My theory is that they go to her blog because of their lustful fantasies. She clearly loves the attention, and now looks like she may even get a few wingnut welfare crumbs, if only to serve as a seat filler.

Anywhoozle, looks like we got some catching up to do.

Tremendous congrats on your Google ranking.

I've read a bit of Altemeyer, but my touchstone for Kathleen's mindset is The True Believer. But you are completely correct.

I only ever run across JD at protein wisdom, and I don't go there much anymore. It's not really worth it. Goldstein crossed the line with me a couple of years ago and I really can't stand the whole victim thing he is still to this day playing up. And Collins is pretty much worthless. I don't even care who that Karl guy is.

Dave in Texas was related to the only time I ever commented at Sadly No! He thought I was part of the crowd there, as I guess you gathered, when I never had been. I think the darthvaderusa commenter at Kathleen's might be Dave, but I'm not sure.

All three of them still call me a stalker, but I don't care. I tried to shame them into stopping it, but Kathleen still reaches back for it every once in a while.

It looks like her comments have dried up in the past couple of days at both blogs. Perhaps even the die-hards are figuring it out.
