Obama is getting crucified about Wright, while McCain gets a free pass on
his association with Hagee, Parsley, & Falwell....Why in the fuck is McCain not taking more heat for giving the commencement address at Falwell's Liberty University (McCain spoke there years AFTER Fawell made his despicable comments about gays, ACLU, etc. causing 9/11)...

I have never seen a candiate like John McCain who simply never gets attacked (all the while Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama get grilled from things they said/did since 1979), McCain has been given a complete free pass...

The media sure has fallen for that vapid phony John W McCain...

1. The Right always gets a pass on their bigotry...
gross double-standard in American politics.

2. and this surprises you.....how
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 04:43 PM by Skittles
ask the average voter if they know Ms McCain is an ex- pill-popping addict....think they'd know that if that was Michelle Obama? The media hasn't even STARTED on Obama. And do you forget the free pass the media gave GWB? They STILL have most of the nation thinking he is a Texan cowboy who served honorably in the military.

11. I forgot about the stepford wife Ms. McCain & her pill popping
you're right, if it was Michelle Obama, it would be front & fucking center page 1, breaking news, bulletin...

Fuck that smug, pug, dope John McCain..

3. The spotlight's yet to fall on McCain
but it will, provided that we end up with a nominee whose campaign is willing and able to do what it takes to win....

4. Because the media is owned by corporations who want Republicans in office.
Simple.

6. Parsley! THAT'S the guy's name.
I was making exactly this point in another thread this morning, but couldn't remember the asshole's name. I'm not an enthusiastic Obama supporter like some here (nor Hillary, for that matter), but I think all this fuss about Obama's pastor is a tempest in a teapot given the ass-licking that McCain has been doing lately.

7. the reason for this is because Hillary is pushing the Wright story
she is the only one who has anything to gain from it.

McCain has his own zealot skeletons, he is not responsible for this.

This is Hillary's last ditch attempt to befoul Obama.
Once again she failed.

9. Oooh, that mean bitch Hillary!
I didn't know she controlled the programming on the news networks.

Blame it all on her, dammit! Your candidate did it to himself.

13. you said it!
she doesn't control the networks. but she sure can have her cronies push a story.
If you don't believe me, go to Politico. They have an article detailing Hillary's involvement.

14. Dude, give it up.
You think Hillary is guilty of everything.

She had nothing to do with this. This story originated from Sean Hannity. Not Hillary Clinton.

10. there is a difference between getting support from a person and
having a person be a 20 year mentor and advisor.

12. Olbermann did a piece on Parsley and Hagee days ago.
McCain isn't getting a free pass from him. Far from it.
