John McCain is a realist – he has the foresight to look ahead at the nine billion souls who will soon populate this planet, and what they will need. They will need energy in quantities undreamt of, and the only way to solve that dilemma is an “All of the Above” approach. We need every energy source working if we would not have the planet plunged into poverty, misery, filth and despair. The first step on that path is making energy cheaper and more abundant in America so that we may continue to feed the world.
In this video you see Senator McCain call on Congress to come back and work on the energy problem.
Newsbusters has video here of Bob Herbert of the New York times either displaying vast ignorance, or craftily deciding to try to slip one by the audience, follow the link, you decide, then come back.
As the Time spread above demonstrates with a Barack Obama quote, the crafty pol has made the Paris comparison himself.
Here’s what Newsbusters had to say about the incident:
We’re all familiar with how an Obamania overdose produced strange tingling sensations in Chris Matthews. A new, virulent strain of the affliction has now emerged, claiming its first victim in the person of Bob Herbert, who on live national TV saw visions of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Washington Monument where none existed.
Obviously the column you see from different angles in the McCain Celeb ad is the Victory Column, or Siegessaule, a monument tainted with some Nazi history. Anyone who’s been following the campaign with the slightest interest knows about the column, and the controversy. The question of why Barack chose to speak at the column was asked by many since he was given a choice of sites, but was stopped from speaking at the Brandenburg Gates.
So now that we know the victory column is a phallic symbol thanks to Bob Herbert’s Freudian insight, is Bob Herbert going to ask Barack Obama why he chose to speak in front of a giant symbolic penis with victory perched atop it?
Although this topic is pregnant for puns and potent for innuendo I will refrain and just reflect that Obama’s glamour once again has seasoned journalists seeing things that simply aren’t there.
