It’s strangely compelling how Grampy’s campaign has become this train wreck of absolutely catastrophic proportions.
Several things about John McCain’s Monday caused some head scratching, including the tease of some new economic policies to a town hall meeting with no Q&A.
Then came the event in Wilmington, N.C., held at — irony alert! — Cape Fear Community College. McCain stood in front of the crowd and said he would take questions or comments after he delivered his remarks. He finished his prepared speech and tacked on a longtime stump story about the bracelet he wears. But then the music and handshaking began. No questions or comments to be heard—at least those directed at the senator. “I thought this was a town hall meeting?” a man asked the press corps.
To cap off the day, McCain tried channeling Clark Gable. During an interview with CNN, reporter Dana Bash asked about McCain’s attacks on Barack Obama, including the Democrat’s relationship with Bill Ayers, the 1960s radical turned college professor.
“Very frankly, Dana, I don’t give a damn about an old unrepentant terrorist,” McCain said.
I almost feel sorry for him. No, I’m serious ... and then I remember that this is the same man who thinks Caribou Barbie and her race-baiting, bible-thumping, mouthbreathing redneck stupidity should be one heartbeat away from the presidency.
Needless to say, what little sympathy I have promptly goes up in flames.
