McCain Campaign Muzzles Muslim McCain Supporter October 21, 2008Posted by Robert in Election 08, Humor, Politics.

Meet Daniel Zubairi, a grassroots organizer for the McCain/Palin Campaign. Above you’ll see Daniel bravely speak out against the hatred being spewed by one of a bunch of bad apples that have been making the McCain rallies sound a lot like some other rallies that you can find in old news reels.
Daniel confronts 2 people that are handing out stickers and spewing lies about Barack Obama being connected to radical Islam and Communism. As an Muslim and a McCain campaign organizer, Daniel really sticks it to them and says in no uncertain terms that they do not represent the views of the campaign and the campaign does not condone their actions.
Wonderful! This is just the kind of straight-talk that I would expect from the McCain campaign. The only problem is, the campaign is not allowing Daniel to speak to the press.
Wow. Just when they get a chance to allow an official representative of the campaign to speak out against hatred, fear and lies as a campaign tactic, they muzzle him.
I thought McCain said he was proud of the people at his rallies? I agree that it’s foolish to judge a candidate based on the lowest of his supporters. I’m sure that Obama has radical Islamic supporters just like McCain has White Supremacist supporters. But I’m positive that if the press wanted to interview an official member of the Obama campaign that confronted a group of radical Islamics at an Obama rally, they would be allowed. Why is the McCain campaign extending it’s theme of press black-outs? It hasn’t worked with Sarah Palin, and it’s certainly not going to work with a like-able character like Daniel.
Let Daniel Speak!

For the first time in 15 years the Phildadelphia Phillies are going to the World Series. Those who know me, know that I gave my heart to the Yankees sometime in college after meeting a large man with a big forhead. But I’ve never stopped loving the Phils and I am absolutely beside myself with happiness that they’re going to the Fall Classic.
My only worry is that Mitch Williams will find a way to ruin this again.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. God-damn Mitch Williams.

There have been many gaffes during this campaign. Both Republicans and Democrats have put their feet in their collective mouths more times than one blog can cover.
But McCain managed, in 3 short seconds, to (at least in my humble estimation) loose his last remaining chance at winning this election and the last remaining shred of respect that I had for him.
Here’s what he did.
Oh. My. Rude. Senator.
I really can’t think of a time where I’ve had such an appalled reaction while watching television. Well, maybe season 2 of HEROES. But my wife, myself and I’m sure a great many American’s all shared a collective “WTF” moment when the Arizona senator referred to his opponent as “That One”.
I mean good Lord. Barack Obama has a title, sir. It is “Senator”. Just like yours is. You could have probably gotten away with “my opponent”, “Barack” or even “Barack-man Turner Overdrive”. But “That One”? Hell ta’ tha’ no.
I will now offer at no charge a retort for Senator Obama to use during the 3rd and final debate.
Who was it that voted with the Bush Administration over 90% of the time? Who was having cake with Bush while people drowned en masse in the wake of Katrina? Who can’t smile without it looking really, really creepy? You may not be able to guess, but it’s “Gramps” over there.
Use it in good health, Senator Obama and feel free to thank me later after your inauguration.
