The 2008 Whiskey Fire John McCain Obscene Limerick Googlebomb Project, that is.
We did this last year; indeed, it ended on 1/23/07, so this is kind of fortuitous. The original spark for the John McCain Obscene Limerick Googlebomb Project came from this Chris Bowers post, where Bowers explained, "If you are anything like me, you are sick and tired of the national image of John McCain as some sort of independent, principled, Republican moderate." John McCain is nothing of the sort: he's a fucking dishonest asshole.
A McCain administration would be a fucking disaster. He's unique in American politics in that he's sold out pretty much everyone of any ideological stripe who ever even for a minute thought he might possess, like, some sort of principle. ANY sort of principle. Take immigration, where he managed to oppose his own legislation out of sheer political expediency. Or take torture, where he preens himself on his "independence," but in reality does nothing. From Iraq, to torture, to immigration, to campaign finance "reform" -- everything McMidas McCain touches turns to absolute shit, but because we have a moron-grade punditocracy, he has a wholly unearned reputation as a straight-talking maverick, when he's just a pandering prick. Fuck him.
So the point is to try to get as many Google searches for John McCain as we can to point to a site that says something accurate about the guy. I picked this piece from Reason because it's relatively recent, has a lot of links, and why the hell not, anyhow?
The distinctive feature of this Googlebomb, though, is that it will come in the form of extremely obscene limericks. The more tasteless the better. This is not a nice blog, after all. Here's a sample:
Or this, from Righteous Bubba:
John McCain's sending Valentine's notes
To those sowing political oats
"I'm a faithful factotum
Who'll slurp crabs from your scrotum
If you can deliver me votes."
That is the shit. If you have a blog, please put this link in your template somewhere:
Linked as "John McCain."
And leave your own obscene John McCain limericks in comments here. I'll collect and publish the best of them on Friday 2/1 with a link to your blog.
