Cheers and Jeers: Wednesday

Just read Jack Cafferty’s blog on McCain, then read this funny breakfast platter from my friend Bill in Portland Maine

Breakfast…served up by Jack Cafferty on a silver platter (See also czardingus’s diary. And then remind me again why Obama’s surrogates rarely speak this plainly.)

Start with a juicy melon wedge:

It occurs to me that John McCain is as intellectually shallow as our current president. When asked what his Christian faith means to him, his answer was a one-liner. “It means I’m saved and forgiven.” Great scholars have wrestled with the meaning of faith for centuries.

Some toast with jam (blueberry’s my favorite):

Asked about his greatest moral failure, he cited his first marriage, which ended in divorce. While saying it was his greatest moral failing, he offered nothing in the way of explanation. Why not?

Eggs Benedict:

He was asked to define rich. After trying to dodge the question — his wife is worth a reported $100 million — he finally said he thought an income of $5 million was rich. One after another, McCain’s answers were shallow, simplistic, and trite. He showed the same intellectual curiosity that George Bush has—virtually none.

Home fries:

He no longer allows reporters unfettered access to him aboard the “Straight Talk Express” for a reason. He simply makes too many mistakes. Unless he’s reciting talking points or reading from notes or a TelePrompTer, John McCain is lost.

And a fresh cup of coffee:

Bush goes bumbling along, grinning and spewing moronic one-liners, as though nobody understands what a colossal failure he has been. I fear to the depth of my being that John McCain is just like him.

Urp! When’s lunch?
