Whoa — McCain Email Pushes Eco-Friendly Campaign Goods

Hmmm, somebody better check on Bush’s Environmental Protection Agency appointees: they must be frothing at the mouth — or unconscious from shock. Yes, an email just arrived from John McCain’s campaign touting the candidate’s enviro-friendly promo gear:

In our new store section, we’re proud to offer eco-friendly t-shirts and polo shirts made from biodegradable fabric, as well as organic cotton hats and shopping bags. You can also buy travel mugs and notebooks made from recycled materials.

Wonder what Rush will have to say about this one…Operation Chaos is over, Operation Cognitive Dissonance has begun. (Note: the online store address didn’t end up in the PDF, but here it is.) BTW, dig the shampoo-bottle logo:

McCain's Eco-Friendly Products

John McCain, from Hanoi Hilton to New Age fashion mogul…$50 for a polo shirt? THAT’S change we can believe in.

  • The analogy is absolutely right on

    I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled
    it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it is, as I filled it
    lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds
    taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and
    easily accessible food.

    But then the birds started building nests in the boards
    of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.
    Then came the poop. It was everywhere: on the patio tile,
    the chairs, the table …. everywhere!
    Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own
    pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They
    sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.
    After a while, I couldn’t even sit on my own back porch
    anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days
    the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down
    the many nests they had built all over the patio.
    Soon, the back yard was like it used to be…. quiet, serene
    and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.
    Now let’s see.
    Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing,
    free medical care, and free education and allows anyone
    born here to be an automatic citizen.
    Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly
    our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments
    are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen
    by an emergency room doctor; your child’s 2nd grade class is
    behind other schools because over half the class doesn’t speak English.
    Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to ‘press one’ to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ‘Old Glory’ are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.
    Just my opinion, but maybe it’s time for the government to take down the bird feeder.
    If you agree, pass it on; if not, continue cleaning up the poop!
