John McCain was on “Morning Joe” a few minutes ago to talk mostly about the bailout bill. His answers were, as usual, discombobulated as he ranted about Washington (as if he hasn’t served in D.C. for 26 years.) When pressed as to why he voted for the bailout package given all his ranting and complaining, McCain responded “This bill is putting us on the brink of economic disaster.” Does McCain know that he voted for the bailout bill?
Now, all those reporters and pundits who know John McCain so well (and used to ride around on the bus laughing at his stories) will just say, “Oh, that’s just John McCain being McCain.” But, if Obama made a screw up like that on the dominant issue in the campaign, it would be a huge story and those same reporters would be all over it. You know that’s true. And, it makes this video more relevant.
