Hey, remember how last night Senator McCain called Senator Obama “that one”? Like many of you, I immediately rushed to BMG expecting to see our friend EaBoClipper tear John Mccain a new one for such a crass display of gamesmanship. After all, it was EaBo who lead the charge against Niki Tsongas when she called Lt. Colonel Jim Ogonowski the almost unspeakable epithet, “my Republican opponent”, during the 2007 MA-05 special Congressional elections!
Let’s take a look at some Eabo snippets from this classic September 2007 thread:
Ms. Tsongas did not treat Mr. Ogonowsi with Respect (4.33 / 3)
She would not call him by name. She called him “My Republican Opponent” as reported by the Lawrence eagle tribune. There is nothing more disrespectful than not calling your opponent by name. It is a cheap political stunt. One I can understand, because Niki Tsongas can’t beat Jim Ogonowski, but thinks she can beat “her Republican Opponent.” It was a calculated disrespectful move….
Not using Jim Ogonowski’s name (4.50 / 4)
at all is disrespectful beyond belief, raj. And you know it. Jim Ogonowski has a name. All Niki’s stunt goes to show is that she knows that she cannot beat Jim Ogonowski and has to paint him as a boogey man in order to win this election….
It’s rude, and arrogant.
Our blog and our country yearn for the fair-handed voice of EaBoClipper to talk sense to John McCain and help restore dignity to his campaign. Eabo, confront this GOP Presidential candidate who has clearly lost his manners and is “disrespectful beyond belief” and grace us with a clear-minded polemic against this ultimate McCain transgression. Help save American politics for future generations!
Never again. Not on our watch.
