In the 1984 apocalyptic movie “Red Dawn” actor Ron O’Neal portrays the character Colonel Ernesto Bella, a Cuban Colonel responsible for subduing and pacifying Colorado. When interrogating the Mayor of Calumet, Colorado and finding the whimpering sniveling cowardice of Calumet’s Mayor Bates nearly more than he can stomach Colonel Bella turns to his aid and delivers this witheringly derisive insult regarding the Mayor, “This community is indeed fortunate to have a shepherd like him”.
Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin gave Barack Insane Obama a Steve Erkel quality atomic wedgie, this week US Senator John McLame responded with a diatribe worthy of Red Dawn’s Calumet Colorado Mayor Bates.
Senator John McCain on Thursday accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of allying himself with tyrants and ruling through violence and repression, in a scathing retort to a New York Times editorial by Putin earlier this month.
In an editorial published on news website Pravda.ru, McCain criticized the Russian leader’s policies at home and in Syria, where Putin has repeatedly protected President Bashar al-Assad.
“(Putin) is not enhancing Russia’s global reputation. He is destroying it. He has made her a friend to tyrants and an enemy to the oppressed, and untrusted by nations that seek to build a safer, more peaceful and prosperous world,” wrote the senior senator from Arizona, who is also a leading Republican voice on military affairs.
What’s more, McCain continues, Putin wouldn’t dare allow his own people to write that about his rule:
When Pravda.ru editor, Dmitry Sudakov, offered to publish my commentary, he referred to me as “an active anti-Russian politician for many years.” I’m sure that isn’t the first time Russians have heard me characterized as their antagonist. Since my purpose here is to dispel falsehoods used by Russia’s rulers to perpetuate their power and excuse their corruption, let me begin with that untruth. I am not anti-Russian. I am pro-Russian, more pro-Russian than the regime that misrules you today. …
A Russian citizen could not publish a testament like the one I just offered. President Putin and his associates do not believe in these values. They don’t respect your dignity or accept your authority over them. They punish dissent and imprison opponents. They rig your elections. They control your media. They harass, threaten, and banish organizations that defend your right to self-governance. To perpetuate their power they foster rampant corruption in your courts and your economy and terrorize and even assassinate journalists who try to expose their corruption.
They write laws to codify bigotry against people whose sexual orientation they condemn. They throw the members of a punk rock band in jail for the crime of being provocative and vulgar and for having the audacity to protest President Putin’s rule.
While the notoriously Marxist sympathetic Ed Morrissey applauds McLames rebuttal (if you can call that whimpering a rebuttal) I personally find it embarrassing. It’s bad enough that John McLame, whose 2008 Presidential campaign strategy was to lose gracefully to America’s first genuine Marxist Presidential candidate, has fought tooth and nail to support Obama, not to mention done everything in his power to provide material support to Al Qaeda. But for him to fight against the TEA Party Republicans, to oppose the Republican base and insult them while exposing his obvious distaste for even having to occasionally meet with and listen to what he clearly feels are the great ignorant unwashed masses, to come charging up on his white stallion in defense of a Marxist traitor bent on destroying America, well, it’s utterly beyond the pale.
For this act of simpering whimpering cowardly courage, I award Senator John McLame the Colonel Ernesto Bella: “This community is indeed fortunate to have a shepherd like him” award.
Now for the love of God and America, Senator John McCain, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up, you have done more than enough damage, it’s long past time for you to retire and, in the immortal words of Five Star General Douglas MacArthur, “FADE AWAY”…
