Cheap Shot McCain
The cheap shots never seem to end, reflecting the inane, if not vengeful humor of John McCain. When McCain is trailing in the polls, he does the royal Hillary. The accusation of the day? Barack Obama is already taking a victory lap by allowing an inaugural address to be drafted for him.
Supposedly, President Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff, John Podesta, had already written a draft inaugural address for Obama. So what? Hasn’t John penned his honorarum yet?
McCain also loves to compare himself since he has little identity of his own. Two weeks ago, he was a Teddy Roosevelt Republican. Today, he glories as the underdog like Democrat Harry Truman. Truman defeated Thomas Dewey in 1948, a victory that came so late that a Chicago newspaper had already printed headlines of Dewey’s victory. I guess McCain needs glory wherever he can get it. “I want him to save that manuscript of his inaugural address and donate it to the Smithsonian and put it right next to the Chicago paper that said ‘Dewey defeats Truman.'”
“Ten days to go, we’re a few points down, and the pundits of course as they have four or five times have written us off. And you know what, my friends? They forgot one thing. They forget to let you decide … We love being the underdog and we’re going to win.” Glory on, Mr. Sarcasm.
