The mighty Saint John McCain, patriot and champion of bipartisan amity, has spoken out again, displaying as usual his unalloyed dedication to "Country First." We bring you his words of inspiration:
On the subject of earmarks, so close to his heart that he would never reduce it to some opportunity to score cheap partisan points:
“Can you believe they are putting $6 million of pork into Homeland Security?” he asks with his trademark clenched-fists."
That's 1/166,666th of the Federal budget. Glad to see you fighting to balance the budget, John, 1/166,666th at a time. Keep up the good work. If you can help this much every day, you will be done in 461 years, give or take a few months.
"Asked about the deficits, his response is blunt. “I think it’s the biggest problem we’ve ever faced.”
Ever? “Yep,” he replies."
Bigger that World War 2, I guess. Too bad he didn't worry about it when he and his buddy George W were spending all the money.
On Obama and the stimulus:
He says he has worked to keep his relations with President Barack Obama “cordial..."
Mr. McCain scoffs, “And now, the answer is, according to the Obama economists, we didn’t spend enough.”
Nothing says cordiality like standing on the sidelines and scoffing.
His "campaign" for President?
"I ask him for his best memory from the campaign. “The high point, I think, was the convention, the selection of Sarah Palin. He says his only regret in selecting the Alaska governor was that no one on the campaign predicted the ferocity of the assaults against her. “To the liberal left, particularly the feminists, she is their worst nightmare.”
Yeah, well whatever else he is, the guy is sure a kidder. Not much given to introspection, huh, John?
"Many feared he’d become the Obama administration’s ambassador to the Republican Party"
Ha ha ha! I guess they didn't need to worry about that!
