A Prayer for John McCain

*sigh* Sarah Palin. Are you kidding? Really? The more I learn about her the more I question whether I should shake McCain or thank him. One way or another, I was seriously prepared to call in to Stephanie this morning with a prayer for the Republicans:

Please, Lord, O Gracious higher power of which I wont naught,
Let your humble servant John McCain choose as his standard bearer
the Righteous Warrior (and soul-so-far-above-mundane-matters-of-Earth-that
Joseph Lieberman, elected Democratically, re-elected Independently, slices Republicanly.

O Gracious Lord, from whom all blessings come, give us this day our Sealed Fate
Ticket, for such as thus surely will give unto Obama the Keys to the Kingdom.
For Thy children's sake I ask of Thee, O King of the Universe,

I was ready to go! But fate stepped in, and I never got through. Then, by nine a.m. Pacific time, I'd learned that Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, had been selected. At first, I giggled, but then, as I learned more about her, I realized that the universe works in powerful powerful ways. Then I guffawed, and bowed down to a Wise Deity. John McCain has exposed himself (ew) as the Penultimate Hypocrite of All Time.

He has chosen another beauty queen; good thing Cindy's rich or I'd be worried if I were her. But seriously, this is such a PLOY! Consider the video below. It's only a minute nine seconds long, you can do it. It's not that a woman refers to Hillary as a bitch, it's that he merely "translated" as opposed to CASTIGATED the pinch-faced human who asked. It's not that he didn't defend the Senator as a colleague and figure of state, it's that after looking nervous as hell, he actually answered the question!!!

John McCain hates women, and I pray for him.

Oh, and just in case you need more convincing, note in this video that not only should he have deplored the language, but denied the statement!

Q: This question goes to mental health and mental health care. Previously, I've been married to a woman that was verbally abusive to me. Is it true that you called your wife a (expletive)?

McCain: Now, now. You don't want to... Um, you know that's the great thing about town hall meetings, sir, but we really don't, there's people here who don't respect that kind of language. So I'll move on to the next questioner in the back.

Schecter himself writes about the exchange at FireDogLake.

UPDATE: It turns out the man who asked the question is a Baptist minister worried about McCain's temper:

Basically what McCain did was give Obama the election all wrapped up in pretty paper with a nice big red bow on it.

I think that's beautiful and it totally made up for a crappy week.
