Remember during the campaign when John McCain made a big deal about how, when he said “the fundamentals of our economy are strong,” he was referring to “American workers?”
Funny how McCain’s prominent mug pops up in the montage above, courtesy of Jed at Dkos, showing the eighteen GOP Senators who voted for a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street, but against a $14 billion emergency loan package to save the “fundamentals” currently working in the auto industry!
McCain, who proudly campaigned under the banner of “Country First,” is now joined by these seventeen other job killing traitors who would let the American automobile industry die to spite its workers, while remaining all too willing to keep the spigots wide open when it comes to the flow of money from taxpayers to the financial jackals on Wall Street!
In another era, these guys might be marched by an angry crowd, wielding torches and pitchforks, to the guillotine. Today, they get to smile for the cameras and pretend they represent the best of their country, while allowing its “fundamentals” to deteriorate to the point of no return.
Somewhere in Hell, there should be an afterlife version of Guantanamo with empty cells waiting for such traitors to humanity!
