The Continuously Clueless Candidate
It's the old fallback political position, when caught in a lie, always claim you "misspoke". No, I'm not talking about Hillary Clinton, I'm talking about John McCain. Last week he stated that Iran was aiding alQaeda in Iraq, which would be sorta like the Church of England backing the IRA, but a doddering old fool can be forgiven, as long as he's not, you know, running for the president of the United States.
Now he's alluding to an audiotape made by Osama Bin Laden about Iraq, saying they both agree on "Iraq as a training field for jihad". How nice. A guy who's dead as dirt and a guy who's as old as dirt agree on something. Except they don't.
Sadr militia fighters battled troops in four Iraq cities. Yes, senator, tell us again how that surge is working. Just as well as your brilliant plan for helping the economy. America has spent the last eight years with a lying clueless president more interested in starting wars and handing out tax cuts to those who don't really need them, than he is in doing something for the other ninety-nine per cent of the people. I don't think we can stand even one more year.
