We’ve all seen the pictures that the Bush haters love to circulate of McCain hugging W. To these people, the picture is worth a million words. It’s worth a book, in fact — I saw an anti-McCain book in Barnes & Noble not long ago that had that photo on the cover. It made me wonder whether the publishers had lost their minds, because the target audience doesn’t need to see anything else! The picture tells it all! Anyone who would hug Bush, under any circumstances, HAS to be bad, because no one who deserves to draw breath would ever, EVER do that.
It’s important to these folks to circulate the picture, and the video, in order to keep hate alive. Otherwise, what would they have to live for after January 2009? The only way to go on is to equate McCain with Bush, despite all the logical barriers. They touched! So that makes him radioactive. No more needs to be said.
Given all that, imagine my shock to learn that, at the Saddleback Church debate, Obama hugged McCain! This raises the burning question: Did McCain give him Bush cooties?
Think of the implications! The Democratic National Convention will be next week, and what would Obama be expected to do — hug fellow Democrats, of course! OMG! The whole party could become infected by this detestable contagion! And what are the alternatives? Well, to put Obama into quarantine, of course. But if you do that the week of the convention, Bill and Hillary will REALLY take over!
So it turns out that there are WMD after all, and McCain’s got ’em: Bush cooties.
