Now That My Friends Is A Smack Down I Can Believe In!!!!!!!!

California Senator Barbara Boxer, opens a can of whoopass on John McSame or McBush (take your pick), in response to that speech *yawn* by him at the RNC convention this week. By way of Daily Kos link

Last night at the Republican National Convention, John McCain used the word "fight" more than 40 times in his speech.

In the 16 years that we have served together in the Senate, I have seen John McCain fight.

I have seen him fight against raising the federal minimum wage 14 times.

I have seen him fight against making sure that women earn equal pay for equal work.

I have seen him fight against a women's right to choose so consistently that he received a zero percent vote rating from pro-choice organizations.

I have seen him fight against helping families gain access to birth control.

I have seen him fight against Social Security, even going so far as to call its current funding system "an absolute disgrace."

And I saw him fight against the new GI Bill of Rights until it became politically untenable for him to do so.

John McCain voted with President Bush 95 percent of the time in 2007 and 100 percent of the time in 2008 -- that's no maverick.

We do have two real fighters for change in this election -- their names are Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

You go Senator Boxer!

Whoa, nicely done!!!

Did you watch the speech Sanjay? I might have (just so I can find fault with it later) but I just couldn't take that bilious-green background...why do they persist in using that horrible green? Ugh!

Hey there buddy! Thank you for the kind words and the comment.

No I could not bring myself to watch the speech. I would likely have thrown up or had to drink to numb myself.

lol@ the bilious green background. You said it so well.
Well they did this as they are so darn incompetent. Here is what talkingpointsmemo.com had to say about it. link

Those who watched the convention closely know that through the event, the screen backdrop had rotating video of what Bounds called "images of Americana." Stuff would cycle in and out.

But that's not what happened with McCain. Our crack analysts at TPM HQ pulled the tape. And what happened in McCains case was that the green screen was up for 5 or 6 minutes. Then it got pulled. It was replaced briefly by a cornfield. And then after a few moments of that it was the picture of the flag, which appeared as a blue screen to viewers on tv. That remained through McCain's entire speech. No more changes. It was pretty clear that someone on McCain's staff realized the goof a few minutes into the speech, cancelled the pre-programmed order of images and hurriedly slotted in flag image to save the day.
