John McCain is an old phony and a cheat

John McCain is an old phony, largely a media creation, a fake and wife-cheater who wraps himself in the American flag and pretends to be a moral person fit for the presidency of the United States of America. He may very well be a war hero, but he's not a real hero in my book.

What sort of real hero cheats on his seriously injured wife and then dumps her for an heiress whose wealthy father could help launch his political career?

Former presidential candidate, Ross Perot, who apparently paid McCain's first wife, Carol's, medical bills all those years ago, allegedly believes,

“that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel—even by the standards of modern politics.”

“McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching for attention and glory,” Perot is reported to have said.

“After he came home, Carol walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona. And the rest is history,” Perot is reported also to have said.

These allegations were made early this summer in an article at MailOnline, part of a UK media group. A similar article appeared at Newsweek.com back in January 2008.

McCain gets a free pass as an adulterer and a cad while Barack Obama is vilified for being the son of an apparently non-practicing Muslim. Read this Obama Says, "...My Muslim Faith..." post and comment thread at the popular The Canadian Sentinel blog to get a taste of the nonsense being said about Obama and a religion he has never embraced.

I read this blog regularly so was particularly disappointed at the unreasoned attack on Obama, a decent man of proven integrity who has made personal financial sacrifices to help better the lot of some of his fellow countrymen.

By some twisted logic you're a Muslim because other Muslims say you are one, even if you have never practiced the religion and belong to a Christian church.

Canadian Sentinel writes, “Clearly he [Obama] IS lying, in that he's denying the undeniable truth that one who is born to Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim.”

To start with, this statement is factually incorrect: Firstly, Obama's father was nominally a Muslim; his Mother was not. So to write that his parents were Muslim is just a cheap trick with words to add phony weight to a fatally flawed argument. Secondly, parents per se are irrelevant in this—it's only the father's Muslim religion that is a determinant. And, frankly, since we have no reliable evidence that Obama has ever accepted the Muslim religion, who cares what Muslims believe?

When Canadian Sentinel claims “apostasy” he starts to sound an awful lot like the “Islamofascists” he likes to write about. And, wait a moment, he does seem to know an awful lot about the Muslim religion, doesn't he? I wonder… No, no, he couldn't be. And yet he apparently knows that (in his words) “…Mohammed Atta reportedly drank alcoholic beverages in public prior to 9/11.” Hmm, make one wonder where he gets his inside information, eh?

Wow, how can you argue against such logic—or should I say thinly disguised, bigotry.
