POLITICS AS USUAL | McCAIN’S MYSPACE PAGE HACKED
By Led Black
Damn, you know everybody has a Myspace page when 70-year-old Republican Presidential hopeful Senator John McCain of Arizona has one. Apparently, the staffer who created the page used a popular template designed by Newsvine founder and CEO Mike Davidson without proper accreditation. To make matters worse they used images that are on his server, which means that he incurs bandwidth charges from people viewing McCain’s page. Mr. Davidson struck back by replacing one of the images on the template with a statement that read:
"Today I announce that I have reversed my position and come out in full support of gay marriage…particularly marriage between two passionate females."
While the Myspace faux pas is somewhat funny, Senator McCain’s seriously skewed views on Iraq and his support of this immoral and illegal war of choice are troubling to say the least. Senator John McCain used to be known as the "Straight Talk Express" but he starting to sound more and more like the “Bullshit Local”. Earlier this week, he told Right-wing radio host Bill Bennett that there “are neighborhoods in Baghdad where you and I could walk through those neighborhoods, today.” This is an outright fabrication according to CNN reporter Michael Ware, who has been in Iraq since the war began four years ago, saying that McCain is “way off base” with his assertion. He stated, “To suggest that there’s any neighborhood in this city where an American can walk freely is beyond ludicrous. I’d love Sen. McCain to tell me where that neighborhood is and he and I can go for a stroll.” Like I said in an earlier column, if this guy wins the Oval Office then it might be time to move to Canada.
