John McCain is a lying, two-faced asshole (oh yeah, he’s also full of shit)

Readers here know how much I “enjoy” cataloging the offensive statements, flip flops, and lies of America’s most media-hungry asshole, Arizona Senator John McCain, but with the “Straight Talk Express” now in full ’08 campaign mode, it is virtually impossible to keep up with McCain’s almost complete lack of straight talk. Really, it’s gotten to the point where you can use that joke:

Q: How do you know John McCain is lying?

A: His lips are moving.

Monday’s swing through South Carolina saw McCain deciding this whole Iraq mess is Donald Rumsfeld’s fault:

We are paying a very heavy price for the mismanagement -- that's the kindest word I can give you -- of Donald Rumsfeld, of this war. The price is very, very heavy and I regret it enormously. I think that Donald Rumsfeld will go down in history as one of the worst secretaries of defense in history.

Of course, McCain has defended and praised Rumsfeld in the past—hell, even the AP was able to go back in time three months to find John the Asshole commending Rummy—and blaming Don of the Dead fails to either assign responsibility to idiot Rumsfeld’s idiot boss, President Bush, or take any responsibility himself for his ongoing support of the President’s war “strategy.” But if McCain had left it at that, why, given his current penchant for bullshit, it would hardly be worth noting.

McAsshole, however, took it a step further, returning to one of his favorite subjects, misleading us about what he has said previously about the Iraq War:

I have been saying for 3 1/2 years that we would be in this sad situation and this critical situation we are in today.

Alas, sadly for the Senator, we all can count, so we all know that the war has been going on for almost four years, and back four years ago, McCain said the war would be easy. But why go back that far when McCain has provided us with evidence of his lying ways within his three-and-a-half year window? Here’s what he said just over one year ago:

I think the situation on the ground is going to improve. I do think that progress is being made in a lot of Iraq. Overall, I think a year from now, we will have made a fair amount of progress if we stay the course. If I thought we weren’t making progress, I’d be despondent.

So, it just begs the question, especially as the nascent escalation already shows signs of being a bloody disaster, what’s your mood now, asshole?
