McCain/Palin Downward Spiral Picks Up Speed
I don't even know where to begin about the continuing implosion of the McCain/Palin campaign. Last week, Democratic House Rep. John Murtha called western Pennsylvania a "racist area." The McCain campaign jumped all over this and there was much chest-pounding and flag-waving. Yesterday morning, McCain went to western Pennsylvania and agreed with Murtha. The video above is hilarious. Angry Johnny's attempt to correct himself made it even worse. Then today, at a rally in New Hampshire, he accidentally called a rate "cut" a word that rhymes with hunt and starts with a c on live television. Cindy McCain barely flinched. She must be used to it by now. McCain's continued use of "Joe the plumber" as a talking point, after it was uncovered that Joe was lying about his income and not even a licensed plumber, is further evidence that McPalin is, as Obama succinctly put it, "out of ideas."
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin believes she'll "run" the senate if she's elected veep in another humiliating piece of video while answering questions from school kids. She's definitely not smarter than a fifth grader...or a third grader in this case. I know McCain must stomp around the "straight talk express," hurling insults at Cindy and screaming about Palin destroying his last chance of being president. It was also revealed Palin's spent $150,000 of campaign donations on a designer wardrobe for the campaign trail. The hypocrisy of this campaign is verging on the surreal.
Brian Williams from NBC said the tension between McCain and Palin during an interview this week was palpable. Palin's been off-message for more than a week -- disagreeing with McCain's nasty robocalls about Obama and suggesting some parts of America weren't patriotic enough. Doh! And why won't she release her medical records? It's just stirring up more rumors that one of Palin's daughters actually gave birth to her last child who has Down syndrome.
It just boggles the mind that people are actually considering voting for dumb and dumber on Nov. 4.
