They Accept Him! They Accept Him! One of Them! One of Them!
February 8, 2008
Gooble gobble, gooble gobble, the wingers accept John McCain! One of them! One of them!
Not that any of this was a big shock. Bending the knee to authority is a given with these flappers, as this seasoned observer points out:
I am sure you are all shocked to know that the wingnuts whinged and moaned and wailed, and in the end sucked it up and embraced their irrelevance. Months of calling him Juan McCain and worse were swept aside, “shamnesty” is but a memory, and all it took was one chorus of the “democrats are worse” and our brave patriots came to their senses. And now, magically, the right-wing blabosphere and John McCain are united and go together like Cheetos and Mountain Dew. Before long, our independent bloggers and right-wing bloviators will be back to doing what they do best- regurgitating the party line.
In the end, they hated Democrats more than they hated Mexicans. Of course, there’s still a rearguard action to recast the likely election winner as a “real” conservative under the skin.
ADDENDUM: Because I’ve gotten a few questions already, I should point out that the YouTube clip is the wedding dinner scene from Freaks (1932), which also inspired the Ramones song “Pinhead.” I think John McCain looks a little like a heftier version of Olga Baclanova from certain angles, don’t you? And seated around the table were some dead ringers for Jonah Goldberg, Michelle Malkin and K-Lo.
