Aw, give him a break, he's old and senile

What part of that wasn't a boo-boo? ;)

Silly republicans!

Haha, here's another McCain slip from today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX1ImnGQYcE

Did he just say he agreed with Obama supporters saying nasty things about western PA?


Posted by: Pug Matt at October 22, 2008 2:49 PM

ouch. That was painful. So who's he agreeing/disagreeing with again?

Posted by: steph at October 22, 2008 3:09 PM

Oh jeez, this is just too horrible. Too bad no one in the crowd called him on it by booing or something.

What a mess.

I like how some people thought it was a joke and the rest probably looked around and wondered if they had missed something.

So the boo-boo was that he didn't refer to Obama as "that guy", yes?

Heh, for a second though I was like, "McCain's really going to tell Pennsylvania off?!?!"

If the situation wasn’t so scary he’d be really funny. Now it just freaks me out that there is even a slight possibility of him getting elected. And I’m not even American.

I agree too, good ol' John "Crash and Burn" McCampaign

That's a gaff there.

country first

Another recent very funny/ironic McCain gaffe:
(warning-- "c-word")

This reminds me of bush's "fool me twice... uh... won't git fooled again!" declaration. It also reminds me of my experience with elders in early stages of dementia and the tricks they use to try to hide it, even from themselves. He may really not realize what a buffoon he's become - that puts the onus on his family and friends to tell him to step down. And it puts more weight into our need to be sure Obama wins by a landslide.

I couldn't disagree with his agreement more, wouldn't you disagree?

Posted by: Bob at October 23, 2008 12:01 AM

I'm a diehard Obama fan, but when I hear a mistake that bad, it makes my heart sink. Yikes.

patriotism and god
always does the trick

Posted by: nivi at October 23, 2008 12:39 AM

Heck, I'm 12 and I'm scared of this guy getting into office

Posted by: Rach at October 23, 2008 7:34 AM


Posted by: joe at October 23, 2008 1:24 PM

I couldn't agree with Obama more that I disagree with you and... wha? where am i? who am i? Just who is John McCain????

Posted by: Central Tendency at October 23, 2008 2:02 PM

from Will: Heh, for a second though I was like, "McCain's really going to tell Pennsylvania off?!?!"

from me: lol I totally thought the same thing! I was thinking to myself, "THIS is a new strategy!"

Posted by: Laura at October 23, 2008 11:10 PM

I just keep watching it. It's possibly one of the greatest backpedals in the history of public speech. Ah, national television.

Posted by: Blank-Mage at October 25, 2008 1:25 AM

So the most glaring error there was the unconstitutional and irrelevant religious reference right?
