It was opposite day in the John McCain campaign yesterday. In this speech in New Mexico, McCain displayed a brilliant case of projection. He said Barack Obama – repeatedly changes his positions on the issues, refuses to answer serious and direct questions, called McCain a liar and he brought up an unnamed Chicago politician. (I wonder who he meant.) He also said that if you ask Obama a question, you get a barrage of insults.
In the Fox News McCain ad that ran over 7 minutes, Fox even provided little blurbs like:
McCain: Going to end corrupt spending in Washington
McCain: I just didn’t show up out of nowhere.
No, that would be McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, who showed up out of nowhere.
Isn’t Palin the one who refuses to answer direct questions?
The screen also contained a ‘Dow Watch’ box allowing us to keep tabs of the stock market while we watched the McCain infomercial. Also, during McCain’s speech Fox reported that the Dow fell below 10,000.
McCain just can’t escape that pesky economy.
