He knows a thing or two about divorce
What a breath of fresh air. A sliver of honesty escapes McCain's mouth during the "Service" forum.
"It's easy for me to go to Washington," said the Senator, "and frankly, be somewhat divorced from the day-to-day challenges people have."
He praises mayors. But we know Johnny M. It's a safe bet that's a huge flip-flop. And it is.
The guy stands out as shameless in a profession full of the shameless.
Back in October 2007, when McCain's candidacy still appeared dead and buried, the Senator berated the two Republican front runners for lacking the necessary political experience to handle commander in chief responsibilities.
"I have had a strong and a long relationship on national security, I've been involved in every national crisis that this nation has faced since Beirut, I understand the issues, I understand and appreciate the enormity of the challenge we face from radical Islamic extremism," the Senator declared. "I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training. I wasn't a mayor for a short period of time. I wasn't a governor for a short period of time."
And just for fun, here's the unbelievably great impression of the Hokey Mom by her seeming twin, Tina Fay on SNL (in case you missed it.) I particularly admire Fay's ability to capture that bizarre Minnesota style accent and the incredibly annoying tone of voice.
