Oh This Is Rich – NYT Rejects McCain OpEd

(9 pm – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Courtesy of video by CNN, turns out the New York Times, after having published an OpEd by Barack Obama, has rejected Johh McCain’s efforts and will not publish his OpEd.

The video is very creepy – the Villagers are all atwitter.

Here is McCain’s rejected piece, in its entirety.

This is considered a big breaking news story.  Yep.

Enjoy the circus that used to be called America.

And no, there’s nothing below the flip.

  1. … the surge was successful.

    And that Obama is not good.

    And such.

  2. … the Daily Kos analysis by diarist kubla000.

    We all know about Senator McCain’s completely debunked observations [a year and a half ago]. As Crooks & Liars noted, he even walked the streets of Baghdad on Sunday whilst flanked by more firepower than the goddamn Death Star. Though Newsweek later reported:

    “Less then 30 minutes after McCain wrapped up, a barrage of half a dozen mortars peppered the boundaries of the Green Zone, where the senators held their press conference.”

    But it’s working, damn your eyes!

    I can hardly think of anything else that’s more brazenly homicidal than encouraging the deliberate killing of more soldiers and civilians just so President George W. Bush can leave office without having to change his mind. It’s like Rove grabbing a small animal and saying, “You know, I went through the trouble of capturing this small animal, I might as well rip its head off. No turning back now, yo! Whee!”

    And we’re not winning – nor will we ever defeat the insurgency in Iraq using military forces. Seriously, it’s bordering on psychotic to believe that President Bush, a man who couldn’t describe the difference between Shi’ites and Sunnis before the war, could somehow be the first commander-in-chief in the history of warfare to overcome a guerrilla insurgency without a 10-to-1 advantage and nearly four years after losing the initiative on the battlefield.

    Why did the McCain campaign’s response to the New York Times rejection remind me of Nixon’s peace with honor and peace in our time as the Vietnam war dragged on through out his term in office.  

  3. Whoever wrote it needs a high colonic.  But the essay is exactly what he’s been saying over and over again all along.  He doesn’t have any measure by which he would declare “victory” in Iraq.  That’s not news.  So the Times won’t print his rant because he won’t define “victory”?  That’s nonsense.

    I just don’t get it.  Is it all a ploy so he can decry the biases of the “liberal media” and the wicked New York Times?  

  4. didn’t get his essay in the Op-Ed pages because the NY Times is not going to print a bunch of lies just because it was (supposedly) written by a Senator.

    Had the subject matter been factual, they might have overlooked the serious flaws of an undefined “victory” as political rhetoric.

    The essay is about as factual as the new TV ad blaming the price of gas on Senator Obama.

    Yeah, like it’s not to be blamed on some asshole that started an unnecessary war where the oil is.

    Nor is it to be blamed on those that voted and supported that war.

    It’s because one Senator didn’t vote for offshore oil drilling.

    Oh wait, BOTH presidential candidate senators voted against offshore oil drilling. I guess McCain’s campaign forgot that those that live in glass mansions should duck when the shit hits the fan.

    Now we know they’re full of shit. Conservatives across America are wondering who the hell to vote for, the opposition or yet another flaming shitheel.
