[ politics ] q about Sen John McCain

Posted 16 December 2010 - 07:14 PM

I just have short question today :)

Who is McCain? is he a well known politician? I am reading his tweets and I think he has a screw louse. I won't go in to details as I am just curious about who he is and who he represent.

Please just answer the question I do not want a flameing thread between supporters / non-supporters of the side he represent!

I'll read any replies tomorrow as I am in bed and writing from my cellphone. Good night fellow programmers!

Yes, John McCain is an American politician. He was the Republican candidate for President in 2008, but lost out to Obama.

And all American politicians have a screw loose. Just sayin'. :)

<edit>And you know there will be a flame war coming. It's American politics. There HAS to be a flame war. But at least you got a straight answer before it started. :^: </edit>

If the screw is in their foot, make sure a cop is nearby. Especially if you're going into the airport restroom. ;)

it's also known to be the douche forum... free to be a douche.

Sorry, but the topic, it impressed the idea of 'troll' onto me. As it did Lemur. Just commenting on that. It is the off-topic thread and all.

Now stop being a snipity bitch.

Troller McTrollerson reporting in.

American politics like to engage in a more physical debate on the eve of election month. They discuss why the opponents platform 'is wack', how they should 'check themselves' and 'recognize da better man'. Here's Obama/McCain during this nation-wide broadcasted event.

This. I'm not sayin, I'm just sayin. There is no such thing as a politician who actually will put their platform first.

Oh and the best possible answer, concise, eloquent with a dash of sarcasm without over explanation :P Very nice B9

Who is being a strict moderator? I just like lordofduct less than I like politicians. Has nothing to do with moderation. You can feel free to post shit all you want. I don't mind you. :001_icon16:

John McCain is the greatest American who ever lived. When he landed in Plymouth Rock in 1620 he quickly realized that the poor starving native Americans needed help and taught them to be self sufficient by dealing blackjack and booking Elvis impersonators on Friday nights. The grateful natives tried to repay him by giving him all of America, but John was generous and gave a bunch of it back, giving birth to the term "indian giving."
When the Chinese invaded Texas, it was John McCain who held the Alamo by reloading Daniel Boon's musket for him, and making tea and scones for the battle weary soldiers, and when morale got really low he would put on a dress and do the can-can to lift the spirits of the besieged Americans.
John was also instrumental in drafting the constitution, and wrote the fine print at the bottom that nobody ever reads, where it says that strip clubs have to offer 2 for 1 drinks on Tuesdays, and all mules must wear pants on Thursdays, because in those days everybody got paid on Thursdays and went to the malls and all those mule asses began to affect tourism.
After inventing the bomb that effectively ended the Japanese threat in World War 2, John took a well deserved break and raised ostriches in Montana for several decades, except for a brief trip to the moon to improve foreign relations with the inhabitants there, during which he left his hat and had to send Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to get it for him.
Then the Russians invaded the North of America in the 80's. Did you ever see Red Dawn? The character played by Patrick Swayze was actually based on John McCain, only all those events took place in a day and John won before it could attract widespread media attention. After that he was so mad that he chased the Russians to Afghanistan and single handedly liberated the Afghans from communist rule, making the story that was the basis of Rambo 3.
John then got into politics, subscribing to the tried and true economic theory that if you give the richest people a bunch of tax breaks they'll feel so warm and fuzzy that they start throwing money at the poor.
In 2008, he teamed up with Sarah Palin, who is such a true patriot that she built her house within sight of Russia just so she could keep an eye on those sneaky commie bastards, and campaigned for the presidency of the United States. Unfortunately, gay hispanic whales carpooled in toyota priuses in record numbers that election day and the Tahitian-born, pot smoking, fascist anarchist socialist communist Barack Obama won the election with the crazy idea that he could help America by investing in infrastructure and making health care attainable for everyone. Disgusted by this outcome, John has now retired and joined the Mormon church in Salt Lake City, Utah.

John is also the only person who has ever beaten Chuck Norris in a fight.

Thanks for the reply ^^ and thanks for staying to the topic :)
Is it election year now or are they just trash-talking each others politics all the time? I'll ignore all other "you are trolling" and "google it" answers, if they don't wanna answer they should stop wasting my and other interested time :D

Re: [ politics ] q about Sen John McCain

John McCain is the senior senator from the state of Arizona. He's a Republican, been in Congress since the early 1980's and was a navy pilot during the Vietnam war where he was shot down, captured and spent a fair amount of time as a guest of the North Vietnamese in various prisons there. During his stay there he was tortured and he refused to accept a repatriation as it would have been out of sequence (the prisoners agreed amongst themselves that those who should be repatriated first should be the longest held captives).

My question is, why should someone from Sweden care about what an American senator from Arizona has to say about anything and why would anyone else care what that non-American person's opinion of those statements is? I'm sure the average Swede has more to worry about these days than the comments of an American senator...say like...oh, I dunno...suicide bombers in Stockholm?

Warning: comments before caffeine may be less rounded and child-safe than normal
