On A Scale From One to 'Giuliani,' How Bizarre Was John McCain's Russia Comment? (UPDATED)
Many of us freaked out today when John McCainvoiced this unusual piece of his mind: "I think it’s very clear that Russian ambitions are to restore the old Russian Empire. Not the Soviet Union, but the Russian Empire." How does anyone arrive at that after reading about the situation between Russia and Georgia? Jesus. But then again, are we just getting soft? Think back to the glory days of the Republican primary season. All of the candidates launched into over-the-top fear babble of this nature on a daily basis, and it was usually more insane! So let's check out two of our favorite ads from late last year -- one from Mitt Romney and another from Rudy Giuliani -- and laugh at monstrous bullshit all over again.
This is one of Mitt Romney's masterpieces, "Jihad." Amidst the bucolic comforts of his New England estate, with autumn's foliage singing a visual symphony of colors to the Heavens, Mitt Romney gently tells us: "It's this century's nightmare, Jihadism – violent, radical Islamic fundamentalism. Their goal is to unite the world under a single Jihadist caliphate. To do that, they must collapse freedom-loving nations like us." WHAT? It's quite a challenge to come up with more ridiculous language than that.
...Unless you're Rudy Giuliani!
This is Rudy's most intense ad, "Tested." That was the thing about Rudy, he always wanted us to think he was the "Tested" one. The ex-MAYOR running for president! What a sack of shit. This is probably the worst ad ever made. He never could understand that people *don't like* being reminded of horrible, bloody attacks all the time. Too grim! "A people perverted"? Oh go fuck yourself you fucking fuck.
We still have no clue why John McCain was talking about restoring the Russian Empire today. What a child.
UPDATE: Whenever you start thinking about how fucking stupid Rudy Giuliani is, it's hard to stop. Here's another memorable example of how this sadistic fuck couldn't keep himself from reminding people of the horrors in their lives. He thought he could win elections doing this. So that's why when he went to Florida -- actually he was always in Florida, because he had no fucking clue what he was doing and thought he didn't need to compete elsewhere, and then he got third in Florida anyway, because he's fucking stupid -- one of his first ads in the state showed old footage of Hurricane Andrew destroying everyone's livelihoods. How mirthful. Fucking idiot.
