Siding With Obama on this One However

Is it me or does John McCain seem just a bit coo-coo?

Obama voted against funding the war. Here's how McCain responded:

McCain responds and then some

McCain responds to Obama in tough enough, if predictable, language:

"While Senator Obama's two years in the U.S. Senate certainly entitle him to vote against funding our troops, my service and experience combined with conversations with military leaders on the ground in Iraq lead me to believe that we must give this new strategy a chance to succeed because the consequences of failure would be catastrophic to our nation's security."

But, McCain being McCain, he can't help himself and goes the next step in the statement's kicker:

"By the way, Senator Obama, it's a 'flak' jacket, not a 'flack' jacket."

Which is to say, "there is only one of us in this argument who has ever worn the uniform." (my words)

And if you still don't get it, a McCain aide blows away the anthill with, well, a rocket.

"Obama wouldn't know the difference between an RPG and a bong."
Well, if you are against the war then voting against it is an honest and principled thing to do. At least you are being honest. Hilary voted against it and I would have too. Here's what ticked off McCain. I may be a right wing Roman Catholic but I'm with Obama on this one.

Obama responded by taking the high road. Here, oh, oh, Obama just looked presidential and you, John McCain, did not.

John is just smarting from the beating he took for supporting illegal alien invader amnesty. Watch John mouth off about abortion soon so as to shore up his conservative credentials.
