Protester tackled at McCain debate

By Matt DeLong

A woman was tackled when she attempted to block Sen. John McCain's path as he left a debate with his Democratic rival Sunday in Phoenix. The woman, whose shirt read "Do I look undocumented?" was holding a sign and shouting an anti-McCain slogan when she stepped in front of the senator before being grabbed by security and forced to the ground. CNN has video of the incident:

During the debate, McCain (R-Ariz.) focused on securing the border with Mexico as the first step in addressing the problem of illegal immigration. McCain, a former champion of comprehensive immigration reform, has come under fire for reversing his position while facing a primary challenge from the conservative former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.).

The lady was actually Nancy Pelosi trying to find her way to Searchlight . Nevada, so she can move into her new retirement home next to Boxer and Reid.. The shirt was given to her by Biden because he did not know what the word "undocumented" meant..

McCain should retire, while he retains a shred of his dignity.

His mindless rantings on DADT convinced me that he is not among those in his age group that still function well.

Among those being presented by the neocons and executives of the international corporations dba the Republican Party, are incumbents, those seeking office, and Murdoch's pundits. There are the clowns, the heretics, the opportunists, and the insurgents. And there is McCain, the ultimate chameleon.

Given that the Republican Party is owned and managed by dedicated neocons and international corporation executives, one has to wonder at their strategy and tactics. If their candidates are elected, could they control them? It is common knowledge that the neocons and CEO's have their own agenda, little or none of which is set forth in the Republican Pledge or the stated goals of their candidates. Are the inevitable dire consequences of their election part of their strategy or unforeseen?
