The King of the Boneheads
October 20, 2008
Those of you living outside New Jersey may not appreciate the pure shock many of us felt when we learned that the Asbury Park Press had endorsed Barack Obama. The Press is based in Ocean and Monmouth counties, where you will find wingerism in all its daffiest contradictions. They owe their property values to the Garden State Parkway, the construction of which turned pennies-an-acre mosquito plantations into million-dollar real estate — and their beaches to taxpayer-funded federal replenishment projects, yet they whine about getting the government off their backs and snarl in royalist outrage when other residents of the state try to use the beaches they squat alongside. In Revolutionary War times, what would become Monmouth County was royalist country, and then as now, the sandwingers want nothing more than to the bend the knee to some clown named George who thinks he was appointed by God to rule over them. And if King George II says John McCain is his divinely appointed successor, they won’t have to do much more twisting to get their brains around that.
That makes it all the more astonishing that the house organ of sandwinger country would allow a few wisps of reality to filter into its editorial board meeting. But whatever.
Go to the comments section, however, and the voice of the sandwinger rings out:
The headline is wrong it should’t say that Obaama is best suited to lead America it should say that Obama is best suited to destroy America. He is not for capitalism, he is for socialism ( just like Bill Ayres) there will be no such thing as the American dream if he gets into office. He wants change alright he wants the Goverement to control everthing and you can throw the bill of righs….right out the window. History has been known to repeat its self and this guy reminds me of HITLER!!!!

Here is a real classic. Note the violent rhetoric about taking Obama out.
Why is this article missing a journalist’s name, are they ashamed? We have two choices, take BO out on Nov 4th or wait till the damage is done and use the onerous impeachment process ( which will occur). Having a single party Congress, Senate and President will be like having a nuclear reactor without control rods . A Political Chernobyl will happen spreading its destructive radiation to the tax, education, health, military, financial, safety, economic and capitalist systems of the United States. Either the APP has a rogue journalist writing from his/her basement or the paper was out drinking all night. This is probably the most “spun” article ever written supporting BO. “Change” c’mon, tax cuts to those not paying = welfare, distribute wealth = socialism, Putin is not KGB = stupid, Challenging BO’s past as being “abrasive ” = camouflage and opening our courts to those who tried to kill or troops = aiding and abetting the enemy…Our enemies are laughing at us .
Funny how all summer we heard about lefties who allegedly wanted to re-enact the violent protests of the 1960s, while in the backwaters of America the real concern is the budding Timothy McVeighs who squat in their mental bunkers and fume at the prospect of a dark-skinned man becoming president. After eight years of thievery, incompetence and brazen exploitation of public fears, the Republicans have nothing left to run on but racism and stupidity and they’re playing those two cards for all they’re worth while conducting a below-the-radar drive to steal what they cannot openly win.
Endless shame on John McCain for leaping into this slime pit along with the rest of the GOP. He has enough sense to understand that any man who wins the election with this kind of sleaze cannot be the president of anything but a small band of morons and ideologues. At one time, John McCain dreamed of being president of the United States. This year he decided to settle for being king of the boneheads. That may be enough for John McCain, but it spells poison for the rest of us.
