John McCain Beat the Press or A Man for All Snakes on a Plane

This is a screenplay that I have in the works concerning the latest John Mccain 'Rage Against the Machine.' This screenplay is an homage to the genres of the Period Piece Witty Dialogue Epic and the Samuel L. Jackson is In It Movie _ call it

A Man for All Snakes on a Plane:

Interior of the Straight Talk Campaign Plane - McCain - center aisle.

Set on an airplane the NYT Reporter an invited guest of the McCain Campaign queries like a three old asking Why? - Because- Why? -Because - Why? -Because concerning a private conversation and what it betokens:

NYT Reporter: Yet how can this be? Because this silence betokened, nay, this silence was, not silence at all, but most eloquent denial!

Senator John McCain: Not so. Not so, Miss Smartpants. The maxim is "Qui tacet consentire": the maxim of the law is "Silence gives consent". If therefore you wish to construe what my silence betokened, you must construe that I consented, not that I denied.

NYT Reporter: Is that in fact what the world construes from it? Do you pretend that is what you wish the world to construe from it?

Senator John McCain: The world must construe according to its wits; this court must construe according to the law. . . .Enough is enough! I have had it with these mother#$%^ing snakes on this mother#$%^ing plane!

once again Mistah Pat you are on the money especially the part about the snakes on the plane. You are being nicer by way of calling them snakes than I would be. I have more colorful names and character assassinations for the leaching bloodsucking blowhards. They do what they are getting paid by that rag that they work for to do which amounts to try and spit Senator John McCain and then turn him slowly over the fire that those scallywags have tried to build. They steadily attempt to provoke Senator McCain intentionally with their word wrangling and by way of stirring the pasture dropping that they are well known for creating. I believe that if these tail carrying misfits continue on the course that they are headed the public will see them for what they are...dastardly dirt diggers and manure slingers which is usually of their own making.

So, you are calling the paper that endorsed McCain "snakes"? I assume you say that because they are now (surprise) attacking him, instead of propping him up?

They helped get real conservatives out of the race, so, like they are finished with McCain, you are now finished with them?

I would never, ever, under any circumstances vote for John McCain. I held my nose and voted for GW twice. I have never voted for a Democrat in my life, and that includes RINO's like McCain.

Our Nation would have been better off if he had died in Hanoi. He will never be President, but he did guarantee a Democrat President.

Come out from behind that corkscrew and let all the kids here get a good look at you - come on don't be shy.

You are shy . . . quite a few bricks shy of a load.

Mistah Pat I believe your visitor there is behind more than a corkscrew.... quit being so nice. He is behind that cow of a paper operating their shovel.

Uncle Pat,

Voted for your article on RCP.

In your opinon, what are some of McCain's weaknesses?

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Thanks Bart,

I think the the guy is pretty strong on most things, but, then again, what the Hell do I know?

I vote for the man and the fact that he seems pretty much like your Dad, your Aunts and Uncles, and most of the people we know and like.

McCain was given the test that none of us ever want to take and passed it with great Honor. He is as flawed as we all are, but his virtues tower over those flaws.

Your candidate is a great Man. I feel that McCain has two legs up on him.

Wear your long-handles under your jeans tomorrow, it will be colder than a mother-in-law's kiss!
