Yes and that evil CBS news, a known right-wing megaphone dismissed it as a gaffe. I mean you and I both saw the policy position paper, the website issue page, and demand for inclusion into the party platform of the view that Iran and Al Qaeda are working together.
Or... maybe....just maybe... it was a gaffe.

What did I miss then because all I have see is three different links to the same news conference where Lieberman corrected him for misspeaking.

How dare you suggest we eat meatloaf in Trumpetland. No ice cream sundaes for you. You also forgot to add the part whereby we reenact the draft with a special exclusion from conscription tax so that I don't go and you do.
Isn't imagining fun?
Well your view is....patheticer....and stuff. Oh and it is silly. Fellowship said anything is bad that is silly so your view is very, very bad.
Or perhaps "getting down" is utterly different from singing a little ditty about bombing Iran? Really, are you serious with this line of reasoning?
I'm not serious. I'm completely unserious. In fact I am actually paid large sums of money by the powers that be to post stuff I never believe on here so that in replying to it, you are actively kept from changing the world. I'm pretty sure you would have personally created a completely renewable hydrocarbon that can be grown for cents on the dollar and solved the entire world's energy crisis but instead... bwahahahahaha... you are in here asking me if I am serious and so the evil overlords that fund me continue to rape and kill the planet. Bwahahahahahahaha!!!!
Yeah. That whole "Keating Five bit" is just stupid old news. And of course, that Times article had nothing to say about McCain's relationship to lobbyists beyond that "nonexistant" relationship. The campaign manager that runs his business out of the "Straight Talk Express"? Doesn't exist
I'm glad we agree on this. Oh wait... you were being sarcastic. Eitherway way you can't have it both ways. The press is either "bringing up" stuff about lobbyists in addition to hashing up old and made up stuff or they aren't. They can't magically not bring it up.. but bring it up.
Remember all the press indignation (including yours) that John Edwards' haircuts and big houses engendered? He's for the poor yet he has money! Hypocrite! How about Al Gore and his lifestyle? Hahahaha what a dick, he claims to be for something that his actions don't totally support!
Actually none of those things bother me. It was the whole "and by the way I am doing these things to study poverty" bit that was galling. Also Gore had more to do with his extensive use of private jets when he could use the wonderful internet he invented to video conference instead.
Oh and isn't it totally fun to bring up stuff that isn't even on topic here? BWaRRR!!! John McCain fit to lead? BWaRR!! Edwards, and Gore equal da eval bad!!!
But McCain thunders against the perniciousness of lobbying influence on governance, staffs his campaign to the gills with lobbyists, and your perfectly fine with that. Go figure, with you being such a consistent, principled figure and all.
Fortunately, the liberal press has made a huge firestorm over this obvious...... oh, wait. Damn liberal media.
They probably are all paid for by the 527 groups like on the left so they don't know how to bring it up without condemning their own side as well.
The cool thing is, when the press does make a huge deal over "gaffes" on the left, you get to yell "OMFG they totally meant to say that, that's no gaffe, that's a policy statement!!!!!"
So, in Trumptland, yes, your always right.
Absolutely and we don't have meatloaf as well!

I wish, you wish, we all wish, but not likely.

I beg to differ and the fact that McCain is seeking the highest office makes it that much worse.
I see no harm with Obama dancing on the Ellen show on the other hand.
Of course singing bomb Iran is silliness..YouTube
How serious does it look and sound there? Hear all the serious press laughing?
Oh course Obama is VERY SERIOUS here.
Look at that evil right-winger Ellen. She clearly has him punching a speed bag to make people think he is violent and has him swaying his hips to make white people think of him as an oversexualized black man who is going to rape their white daughters. Then she pays him off with an $800 bribe at the end....
Or...perhaps it is just silliness.

So I'm just saying get it while you can!
We all know what you are saying. You never say anything else. I think your posts must be a keyboard macro.

See what I mean?
Jimmac. You don't have to act senile in hopes that in noticing the traits in you, we will see them in McCain.
