Denver, Colorado - In an effort to keep the peace, John McCain's security forces ordered the Denver Police, (public servants salaried by tax payers) to throw out 62-year-old librarian Carol Kreck from a Town-Hall meeting on charges of trespassing.
When she protested, Ms. Kreck was then threatened with arrest, jail, (the big house) and told someone would have to post her bail. Unlike the headline grabbing activities of Amy Winehouse or Naomi Campbell, this 62-year-old librarian was guilty of silently carrying a homemade sign that the McCain security forces found offensive. The sign read: McCain=Bush.
It wasn't as though, Ms. Kreck, threatened to perform a Jessie Jackson on the good Senator; it isn't even clear whether her McCain=Bush sign was meant to be derogatory or complimentary toward Senator McCain. However, it is a pretty sure bet, that like raw fish left out in the sun, Kreck now finds Mr. McCain putrid, and is taking the nation's librarians along with her and maybe all of the nation's 62-year-old ladies.
Though working lickety-split tossing out the librarian from his Town-Hall meeting, later when McCain was asked why he voted for a bill in favor of insurance companies providing Viagra coverage for men, but voted against insurance companies providing birth control coverage for women, his plane seemed to stall in the mid-air; eyes spinning like a gage needle on an empty fuel tank. He rubbed his chin in reflection; no words came out. Glancing left and right, his plane was clearly losing altitude. A 'gottcha' moment followed with silence. It was as though a librarian had said, "Schhh."
After what can only be described as a pregnant pause, McCain promised to get back to the reporter. His plane gliding down to the tarmac on empty.
Even the most stalwart women supporters of Hillary Clinton have to be having second thoughts about revenge voting for McCain. Voting for McCain would allow him to Stepfordize the rest of them. Skipping the vote would still give McCain a win. Not a realistic option for women.
Somewhere around Denver, Colorado, a 62-year-old librarian has to be smiling.
