Punks for McCain

Jonathan Cook, from Forever The Sickest Kid, has thrown his weight behind the bid to get John McCain into the White House. Let's not write him off as a know-nothing commercial punk, though: he's got well thought-out reasons. It's because, erm, when Obama chartered a plane, he painted out the company logo and put his own on instead:

Obama The Patriot - Removes American Flag From His Plane

Barack Obama recently finished a $500,000 total overhaul of his 757. And as part of the new design, he decided to remove the American flag from the tail...

What American running for President of the United States would remove the symbol of his country? And worse, he replaced the flag with a symbol of himself...

What in the world does this guy stand for besides self promotion? GRRRR sorry I am on a tangent.
John McCain 08 FTW!

Presumably Cook isn't such an idiot he doesn't realise that every presidential candidate who has ever hired a plane has had it repainted in campaign colours. So you can only conclude that this is just a desperate bid to try and prove something using spurious 'evidence'. (For the record, McCain has repainted his Swiftair plane with his campaign colours - that, though, wouldn't be self-promotion, would it?

Quite frankly, anyone who really considers the colours of an aircraft to be more important than... I don't know... maybe, say, actual policies, is pretty moronic. It speaks volumes about the state of politics (probably across the world) that people are still more concerned about how people display a piece of fabric painted to represent the land between imaginary borders than they are about the people living in that same region.

Man alive, basing your political position on the contents of the most recent 'Fwd: FWD: Fwd: Re: Fwd: CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?!?!' chain-email you received is a grim thing.

Next week, Avenged Sevenfold announce a benefit concert in aid of people who wake up in baths of ice without their kidneys.

Rather amusingly, Wickipedia describe the band as being 'power-pop'. Glad to see that Cook is being reamed in the comments to the blog entry.

@james: very good!
