That Scheiße Touch


Hah. I see This Modern World had the same idea I did--with much better photos. Go check it out.


Who is running the McCain campaign? When the RNC came up with its cockamamie idea to run radio ads in Berlin, PA; Berlin, WI; and Berlin, NH, on a day when Barack Obama was giving his big speech in Berlin, Germany, someone should have told them no.

And what idiot thought it was a good idea to schedule a McCain appearance at the cheesy Schmidt’s Sausage Haus und Restaurant tourist trap in Columbus, Ohio? What a way to highlight the difference between the two candidates. While Obama makes the big, important, statesmanlike international appearance, McCain enjoys the Senior Citizen discount and orders “a couple of cream puffs to go”? Bizarre.

Maybe next time Obama leaves the country John McCain can open a shopping center.

Which is more impressive: the photo at left, or this:

And what’s up with Lindsey Graham of South Carolina tailing him wherever he goes? It’s starting to creep me out.

The funniest thing is how McCain is trying to play the “humble” card now:
McCain told reporters that he'd loved to give a speech in Germany. "But I'd much prefer to do it as president of the United States rather than as a candidate for president."

This from the guy who was in Colombia, Mexico and Canada a month ago, who met with the leaders of these countries and yes, gave speeches.

This is the most inept presidential campaign I ever remember.
