Pallin’ around with terrorists

My friends, we have a national scandal on our hands.  One of our presidential candidates has been in the company of a convicted criminal and known, unrepentant terrorist as recently as last year.  Worse, this candidate has repeatedly lavished praise upon this individual, despite his well documented crimes and conspiracies.

The terrorist in question has a long and sordid record of plotting arson, orchestrating burglaries and kidnappings, and once called on followers to kill federal officials.  He claimed “no responsibility” for any deaths that acutally resulted from his irresponsible and reckless language, though, in typical terrorist fashion.

Who is this vile degenerate, and who is the candidate that’s been “palling around” with him?  Is it this guy, one-time member of the Weather Underground?

Nope, it’s not William Ayers.

It’s actually this guy, G. Gordon Liddy, architect of the infamous Watergate break-in, co-conspirator of bomb plots and kidnappings during the Nixon years, thug and scumbag who once exhorted his listeners to

“…if the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms comes to disarm you and they are bearing arms, resist them with arms. Go for a head shot; they’re going to be wearing bulletproof vests.”

G. Gordon Liddy - Conspirator, Convicted Felon and Terrorist

He also bragged about taking target practice using sillhouettes named “Bill” and “Hillary”.  And this is the guy whom John McCain, the candidate who does not “pal around” with terrorists, lavished praise upon as recently as last November:

LIDDY: Your experience in the Hanoi Hilton is remarkable. I mean, I put in five years in a prison [for masterminding the Watergate burglary, and associated crimes], but it was here in the United States, and they didn’t torture – the only torture that I had was being forced to listen to rap music from time to time.

McCAIN: Well, you know, I’m proud of you. I’m proud of your family. I’m proud to know your son, Tom, who’s a great and wonderful guy. And it’s always a pleasure for me to come on your program, Gordon. And congratulations on your continued success and adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great.

Riiiiiight.  What principles would those be, exactly?  Using threats of violence and fear to advance your agenda?  Well, judging from the behaviors of crowds at his recent campaign rallies, that’d probably be a resounding “yes”.

Way to not “pal around” with terrorists, Senator McHypocrite.
