Back to the Future!

McCainworld, 2013:

After efforts to pressure the Government in Sudan over Darfur failed again in the U.N. Security Council, the United States, acting in concert with a newly formed League of Democracies, applied stiff diplomatic and economic pressure that caused the government of Sudan to agree to a multinational peacekeeping force, with NATO countries providing logistical and air support, to stop the genocide that had made a mockery of the world’s repeated declaration that we would “never again” tolerant such inhumanity. Encouraged by the success, the League is now occupied with using the economic power and prestige of its member states to end other gross abuses of human rights such as the despicable crime of human trafficking.–John McCain, May 15, 2008

From The Caucus at The New York Times:

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Senator John McCain declared on Thursday that most American troops will be home from Iraq by 2013 and that Iraq will be a functioning democracy with only “spasmodic’’ episodes of violence, a striking departure from his refusal so far to set a date for U.S. withdrawal.

In a speech in the heart of Ohio, a major battleground state in the fall election, Mr. McCain set forth a sweeping, extraordinarily positive vision of what the world will look like 2013, when he says he will have been in the White House for four years.

“By January 2013, America has welcomed home most of the servicemen and women who have sacrificed terribly so that America might be secure in her freedom,’’ Mr. McCain said at the Columbus Convention Center. “The Iraq War has been won. Iraq is a functioning democracy, although still suffering from the lingering effects of decades of tyranny and centuries of sectarian tension. Violence still occurs, but it is spasmodic and much reduced.’’

The United States, Mr. McCain added, “maintains a military presence there, but a much smaller one, and it does not play a direct combat role.’’

During his primary battle, Mr. McCain frequently accused Mitt Romney of setting a timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq, a charge Mr. Romney denied.

In comments to reporters after his speech, Mr. McCain insisted that his speech should not be interpreted as setting a date for withdrawal, and that he was simply projecting victory in Iraq. He took issue with a reporter who characterized his speech as a “magic carpet ride,’’ saying: “I don’t think it has anything to do with fantasy, I think it has everything to do with setting goals and achieving.’’


In Afghanistan, he said, an increase in actionable intelligence will have led to the capture or death of Osama bin Laden, and “there is no longer any place in the world al Qaeda can consider a safe haven.’’


On domestic policy, Mr. McCain projected that the United States will have experienced several years of “robust economic growth;’’ a reduction in the corporate tax rate; and the beginning of a phase out of the alternative minimum tax.

    hahahahahahahaHA! I dig it all – from the concept to the title to the poster to the magic carpet!

    Captain Underpants is already flexing his flab and insulting the UN, China, and many others before even getting NEAR the Oval Office. Way to go, CU! It might even be a new record for arrogance!

    Brilliant, nonnie, brilliant!

  2. you can thank capt underpants for the concept, nightowl. what is even more hilarious than the speech itself is the stupid grin he has on his face when he says $hit like that.

    From a sickening smirk to a stupid smile, the stuff of nightmares…

  4. what really makes me nauseous is when he addresses everyone as “my friends”. i wonder which pollster thought that it was going to make people feel warmer towards the toad. it’s so forced, and you know that he was told my someone to put it in every speech.

  7. Nonnie, your “League of Democracies” photoshop was so funny that I put it up on my LiveJournal.

    At least one member of my friends list there got a big kick out of it.

  8. hi neon vincent!! 😀
    i am thrilled to see you over here! i am on my way to your journal right now.

  9. neon vincent,
    i wanted to leave a comment over at your place, but i don’t have an account. please tell your friend, manekikoneko , that i didn’t cheat. i really did photoshop batman, and that is gordon’s brown face. i tried to pick a picture that was a bit distinct, and i thought that using one in which his lips were a bit pursed would do the trick.
