Yesterday at a campaign stop in Virginia, John McCain said he would "whip [Obama's] you-know-what" in the debate Wednesday night. Meanwhile, his campaign is suffering from severe whiplash from their wildly jerking positions on every issue under the sun. From saying the economy was fundamentally strong one week to declaring it a dire emergency worthy of suspending his campaign the next, McCain and his dysfunctional cronies have been all over the map.
On Saturday, the campaign leaked word to Politico that McCain would be introducing a bold new economic agenda on Monday. The next day, spokesman Tucker Bounds retracted saying, "We do not have any immediate plans to announce any policy proposals outside of the proposals that John McCain has announced, and the certain proposals that would result as economic news continues to come our way."
Need further proof of McCain's dazed and confused behavior? McCain-Palin spent last week cultivating crazed blood-thirty mobs by saying Barack Obama pals around with terrorists. When the crowds got completely out of control, shouting death threats to Obama, McCain tepidly tried to calm down the rhetoric. Yet when asked by a local Virginia news station yesterday whether the chair of the state's GOP, Jeff Frederick, was accurate when he compared Obama to Osama bin Laden because they both "have friends that have bombed the Pentagon", McCain claimed he didn't have enough information to judge whether the remark was appropriate.
Apparently, McCain didn't know his spokeswoman, Gail Gitcho, had already condemned the remarks saying, "While Barack Obama is associated with domestic terrorist William Ayers, the McCain campaign disagrees with the comparison that Jeff Frederick made."
Along the same lines, after Obama rightly criticized McCain's campaign for “riling up a crowd by stoking anger and division,” McCain adviser Nicole Wallace attacked Obama for “insulting” their supporters. She said, "Barack Obama’s assault on our supporters is insulting and unsurprising. These are the same people Obama called ‘bitter’ and attacked for ‘clinging to guns’ and faith. … Attacking our supporters is a new low for the campaign that’s run more millions of dollars of negative ads than any other in history."
Pretty funny -- I'm convinced that Nicole Miller has no soul based on the wide-ranging depraved remarks she has made throughout the campaign. The day after Miller's idiotic remark, McCain's top adviser Mark Salter was the one who really insulted the senator’s supporters. Salter said, “I think there have been quite a few reporters recently who have sort of implied, or made more than implications, that somehow we’re responsible for the occasional nut who shows up and yells something about Barack Obama.”
So according to the McCain campaign, Obama is insulting when he says the crowd is being riled up, but their own spokesman is justified to call the supporters nuts? The only thing that's nuts is McCain and his dysfunctional campaign.
