Cindy and John McCain seem to have a problem with the truth. If John can't get things right in his marriage how can he get things right for the country?
Cindy and John McCain have an interesting marriage. Cindy tells Jay Leno that she learned to fly an airplane and kept it secret from John, and the two of them lied to each other about their ages, she saying she was 4 years older than she was, and he saying he was 4 years younger than he was. She said they never found out the truth about each others ages until they had to apply for their marriage license and give their correct ages. She also says she became addicted to pain killers after back surgery and John never suspected a thing, but her parents noticed that she had a problem. It sounds like they are skilled at gaslighting each other. If John has trouble with truthfulness in his marriage how can he be honest as leader of the free world? Expect the gaslighting to continue whenever it's to his advantage.

McClellan is finally getting it right about how the Bush administration has gotten it wrong. Illuminating the gaslighting being perpetrated against the American people
Former Press Secretary Scott McClellan now thinks telling the truth is important even though Republicans suggest he is disloyal and should have taken the lies to his grave. Really. They really suggest this. Watch the associated press video which lasts 1:50 seconds.
In some ways this is good therapy. It is time, in the United States for the truth. The gaslighting which has been going on for 7 years is finally being exposed. Do Americans have the stomach for the truth or do they still want to be lied to? I sure hope they have the courage to face up to the truth. These hearings are a form of national psychotherapy which is good for the national soul.
It is hard to believe that this passes for leadership. The interesting thing is that Americans think he is funny and his malaprops and confusion seem to be endearing. It is scary to think this man's finger is on the nuclear bomb button and he was entrusted with the authority by our congress to send our nation into an illegal, immoral, and disastrous war.
We as a nation, need to face up to the healthy shame most of us feel because we were gullible enough to elect this man to lead us. While he is funny, we elected him, and the joke is on us. Not many people around the world find our stupidity amusing, and we must do better in the next election in 2008. Are Americans up to the challenge of righting the wrongs of the last 8 years or will we be hoodwinked again by the gaslighting techniques of the politicians, the religious quacks, and media wonks?

Gaslighting leads the gaslighter and the gaslighted into psychosis otherwise known as the Twilight Zone. Donald Rumsfeld needs his meds and its a understandable why America has become a nation dependent on psychotropic drugs with leaders like this. Video lasts 1:38
President Bush gets it wrong about Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib and gaslights a British journalist and the public
"Gaslighting is the deliberate attempt to mislead people into thinking things are one way when are really another with the effect that the gaslighted person or people start to feel crazy and doubt their own mind."
Here is a great example of President George W. Bush gaslighting a British journalist. Laura Bush's expression as she listens to her husband's baloney is priceless. Video lasts 1:32
The Republicans smeared John Kerry with the put down "flip flopper" but nobody "flip flops" like John McCain. This video lasts 1:24 is one of the craziest making things I have seen from this guy and he has some pretty crazy making statements. Watch this and see if you can determine where he stands on Social Security. There seems to be a little something here for everyone. His statements are pure baloney.
U.S. Supreme Court gets it right for the third time and George W. Bush continues to get it wrong about Guantanamo
Eugene Robinson's column in the Washinton Post on June 13, 2008 describes the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling against the Bush Administration's policy re: Guantanamo and depriving defendents of their civil and human rights. The really alarming thing is that McCain defends there illegal policies and wants to continue them.
It shouldn't be necessary for the Supreme Court to tell the president that he can't have people taken into custody, spirited to a remote prison camp and held indefinitely, with no legal right to argue that they've been unjustly imprisoned -- not even on grounds of mistaken identity. But the president in question is, sigh, George W. Bush, who has taken a chainsaw to the rule of law with the same manic gusto he displays while clearing brush at his Texas ranch. So yesterday, for the third time, the high court made clear that the Decider has no authority to trash the fundamental principles of American jurisprudence. In ruling 5 to 4 that foreigners held at Guantanamo Bay have the right to challenge their detentions in federal court, the court cited the Constitution and the centuries-old concept of habeas corpus. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy's majority opinion seems broad and definitive enough to end the Kafkaesque farce at Guantanamo once and for all.

Pentagon deliberately gets it wrong providing false information to American people about Jessica Lynch, Pat Tillman, etc.
It's hard to believe that the government deliberately lies to the American people to further their imperialistic purposes. Do you think it more likely that the goverment will continue lying to the American people under a McCain administration or an Obama administration?
Here is a video of Jessica Lynch testifying before congressional committee on oversight and government reform. It is the lying to the American people which mystifies people, engenders confusion, distrust, polarized opinions, and delusional thinking on a national scale. Government officials deliberately precipitating national psychosis is evil. Video lasts 7:10
