‘The Other McCain’ Gives Virginia Right! the ‘Full Metal Jacket Reach-Around Award’

The Full Metal Jacket Reach-Around Award from The Other McCain! How cool is that?

I noticed a larger than normal number of hits today, so I looked at the linkbacks. Normally, I have the honor of being held up as a shining example of right wing nuttery by the likes of Huffington Post and Daily KOS, but usually in the comments section. But I have made it to article status in the Village Voice blog section, again as a wing nut.

But this was different. Friendly Fire! Stacy and Smitty! The Other McCains! (Well, Smitty is not actually a McCain, but he is a great writer.) Right there, at the top of the center column. The Full Metal Jacket Reach-Around Award in all it’s glory.

Every day, I stop at a number of blogs and web sites from the right side of politics to start my day. A large mug of Java – black, of course. And I digest what is being said, in case someone happens to ask my opinion on something.

I have started sentences quite often by saying “Well, on The Other McCain today …”. And I usually receive blank stares. Normally because someone asked me where the restroom is, or what time it is.

Seriously, Stacy and Smitty are two upstanding guys and true journalists, in every sense of the word. We met in the bloggers lounge at CPAC this year, though I suspect my memory of these two is a bit more vivid than their memory of yours truly. Smitty, ever the dedicated blogger, chained to the table, listening and writing every important word. Stacy, on the other hand, sets the room on fire simply by entering. Predicting the Glenn Beck tear breakdown was thepièce de résistance. The highlight of the entire CPAC experience.

Stacy predicted the meltdown with near pinpoint accuracy and the lounge erupted in a cheer as the tears began to stand out from the sweat.

But I have read a number of articles that Stacy McCain has written that quite simply blew me away. The gentleman is a wordsmith. Smitty is no slouch, to be sure. But if you want a treat, make sure you read The Other McCain often. It’s that good!

And in case you are wondering, Stacy McCain is the ONLY blogger to have posted a picture of himself in a Speedo bathing suit. I doubt any other blogger would even admit putting one on, let alone having the audacity to post it!

Thanks, Guys. For the honor and the effort you put forth.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
