The Other McCain

Now and then, one gets trashed so hard that the best course of action is to join the audience in admiration of a good trashing:

When did Smitty turn into a Progressive? He seems to claim charisma is a zero sum game. He claims the charismatically rich Paul Ryan got that way from robbing the poor TrogloPundit. He doesn’t believe in trickle down charisma or the Laugher Curve of charismatic outflow elasticity.

All of this, of course, is unfair.

    And then there’s Steve Burri, who manages to turn it into a permanent deficit game worthy of Ben Bernanke and  Timothy Geithner…

    Fortunately gods walk among you to give you something to aspire to…

    No, no, no! The problem is that the WYB has mucho Charisma, while The Big Smitty, being a retired Nasal Ossifer is fresh outta Charisma. Consequently, Big Smitty has forgotten what Charisma looks like.

    That’s what I see, anywayz. But being on many right-wing hate lists, we know that I’m probably liying, but I get the impression I fit in well on this site with the Boss here being a certified lying liar.

    That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

    Rising charisma floats all boats…even bald ones.
