It All Depends On What The Meaning Of The Word “Small” Is…

As the McCain campaign steadily defines deviancy down, it is also defining “small business” way up:

On Thursday in Sarasota, Governor Charlie Crist introduced J. Robert Long, the CEO of Marine Concepts as a “small businessman.” The man McCain dubbed “Bob the Boat Builder” spent, as Crist noted, most of his career at Wellcraft Marine, which reported revenues of $67 million last year, according to Yahoo! Finance.

Tonight in Colorado, Senator Lindsey Graham, a close friend of the McCains, described Cindy as “a great small businesswoman.” Her “small” business — Hensley & Co., a family-owned Anheuser-Busch distributor that is the third largest among the 800 in the country — had revenues of nearly $200 million last year, according to Yahoo.

Just keep this in mind the next time you hear McCain or his surrogates talking about tax breaks or other stimuli for “small business owners.”

At Long Last, Sir, Have You Left No Sense Of Irony?

Joe “Quavering Sanctimony” Lieberman, responding to local media questions about McCain’s smear campaigning:

“You look at some of things that both Senator Obama and (vice presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Joseph) Biden have said about McCain. One could say they’re intemperate,” Lieberman said.

He then went on to chide the media for “the demeaning of our politics by this kind of focus.”

Calling your opponent a terrorist is a little more than “intemperate,” Joe.  If you had anything remotely resembling the mighty moral compass that you pretend to have, you would recognize that there is absolutely no equivalence here.  You smarmy, dishonest little tick.
