Since Hillary Clinton officially suspended her presidential campaign earlier this month, and endorsed Barack Obama, a group of alleged ex-Hillary voters enraged with the media for "anointing" Obama has surfaced to swing their support behind John McCain.
However, the alleged group in question (PUMA PAC) and its leader, Darragh Murphy, has never been recorded as having donated cash to Hillary’s campaign, but did give McCain’s $500 back in 2000 when he ran against Bush – raising the suspicion that Murphy’s “group” is a GOP hoax designed to siphon disgruntled Hillary supporters over to McCain.
Either way, even if these people are not a GOP scam, and do support McCain despite his vow to overturn Roe v. Wade, their “reasoning” for doing so smacks of a Fox talking point as seen in the following staggered YouTube comment exchange between me (in italics), and someone named "cancelledbysbc" (whom I am assuming is Darragh Murphy):
CHV (questioning Darragh Murphy): So you would vote for McCain if doing so would bring the country one step closer to overturning [Roe v. Wade]?
DM: I simply do not define the presidency by Roe VS. Wade, nor do I believe this would happen, it is an attempt to use unreasonable fear against women...also McCain has promised to appoint many women to his cabinet and advisory positions. Obama supporters have done MORE harm to womens causes than any republican ever could.
CHV: Please....McCain has said time and again that Roe is, in his opinion, bad law and that it would be a chief priority of his presidency to pack the SCOTUS with justices in the ideological school of Scalia and Thomas in order to overturn Roe. If you wanna vote for McCain, be my guest. But by the way, if you (D. Murphy) are such a fervent Hillary supporter, how much did you donate to her campaign this year, and how much do you plan to donate further to help retire her debt?
[Murphy never answered this question, but one of her lackeys incredulously claimed that she could not donate anything to Hillary this year because--get this--were Obama to be elected in November, Murphy expects to be bankrupted by his tax policies. However, Murphy did have the following response to my pointing out that it was indigenous for Hillary's supporters to claim she was screwed out of primary votes in Florida and Michigan considering both elections--thanks to each state's Democratic leadership--were non-binding.]
DM: [i choose to] believe voting is a RIGHT that should NEVER be taken away, and no political party should fall under the impression they are MORE powerful than the people, but then again we do have recourse don't we, unfortunately that's not part of YOUR agenda so you disagree, WE DO NOT HAVE TO FALL IN LINE WITH YOU PERIOD!
CHV: Jesus Christ, will you back off on the caps lock? You "sound" like a screeching 8 year-old denied a ride to the American Girls store. As for my "agenda," I'm not a member of Obama's campaign, plus everything I've rendered here is my opinion (in addition to several facts being raised such as primary counts), but if you want to vote for McCain or Mickey Mouse, go for it. I truly don't care.
DM: aww SEEMS as THOUGH YOU DON'T LIKE CAPS, I LIKE CAPS! I Learned SOME TIME AGO the AVERAGE OBAMA SUPPORTER HATES CAPS, HOW DOES it FEEL to be just AVERAGE AND NOTHING SPECIAL? AS FOR YOU BEING in the OBAMA Campaign or NOT WHO CARES? NOW CLIMB BACK UNDER the ROCK YOU SLIPPED OUT FROM UNDER!
OH and Thanx for YOUR PERMISSION TO VOTE FOR McCAIN DIDN'T KNOW I NEEDED IT BUT OK YOU CONVINCED ME I WILL VOTE McCAIN Thanx for YOUR HELP!
[Being sick of the above noise, I decided to tactfully opt out of the "conversation" with Ms. Murphy with the following which I'm sure was well-received.]
CHV: THANKS for the RANT, SWEETIE. NOW be A GOOD GIRL, and GET IN the KITCHEN AND MAKE ME A SANDWICH.
Anyhow, check out the noise over at YouTube, and set your faces to stun.
