You go, Steve!


Blogging Tory co-founder Stephen Taylor gets to ask presumptive Republican nominee John McCain a real, honest-to-God question, and he makes the most of the opportunity:



Stephen then offered to shine McCain's shoes and drive him to the airport afterwards but, sadly, McCain was already set with all that.

: Since Stephen is such a stickler for following financing rules, I would have thought he might have tackled something a little more meaningful. Like this.

I'm thinking that's why we here at CC HQ don't get invited to political conventions. It's a "substance" thing.

wow, Stephen Taylor really knows how to play political hardball.
i don't think it was McCain's shoes he offered to polish later.

That was pretty feeble, wasn't it?

In fairness, there's no way Taylor could have known any of the information reported on AMERICAblog at the time of the presser.

In all fairness, RT, I didn't expect anything more substantive out of Stephen Taylor or any of the other attendees.

This was clearly a John McCain love-in and shmoozefest, where anyone who got even mildly confrontational would undoubtedly have been gagged, dragged from the room out to the parking lot, and beaten in the kidneys with rubber hoses until they pissed blood.

So, no, one can't really blame Taylor. He was invited based on his presumed unbounded adoration for the maverick, straight-talkin' John McCain, and he played his part perfectly. He will almost certainly be invited back next time as long as he sticks to the script and says all the right things.

Apologies in advance if my fellow Americans are stupid enough to foist this asscrunch on you. I think in the interests of being kind to Canada, our friend, neighbor, and ally, he should give state visits a miss. You have enough fuckwits running around without us sending extras.

That sleazeball cracker Ambassador Wilkins is where the problem starts.

God, I never thought I'd start missing Paul Cellucci.

And could someone deport Tom D'Aquino already? I can't stand that oleaginous moron.

So PR was there?
