Mccain rejects and denounces chief economic advisor's description of economy

Mccain, who for weeks has been describing the psychological advantages of all his goofy economic proposals, has to distance himself today from his chief economic advisor and UBS executive Phil Gramm for saying the same thing less eloquently. As Kos says, "When you use that word this much, it's not a gaffe. It's a talking point." Of course, when you start speaking less eloquently than John Mccain, it may be a clue to call it a day.

Gaffe Classics: "I hate the gooks!"

SusanG over at DKos does a quick fact check of a statement from a Mccain spokeswoman that "John McCain has never once in his life engaged in negative, offensive rhetoric against any group."
Ummm ....
"I hate the gooks," McCain said yesterday in response to a question from reporters aboard his campaign bus. "I will hate them as long as I live."

“Now we’ve got the cables. We’ve got talk radio. We’ve got the bloggers. I hate the bloggers."

Hey I hate the cables too. That's why I canceled my the cables last year and now I just get the basic cables and the internets.

Mccain Ad: I will create new jobs in Mexico!

Mccain is presumably spending his paltry fundraiser to air this commercial, even though it is the most off-message ad I've ever seen:

Mccain's so gaffe-prone that he's decided to just go ahead and campaign on a message of gaffes.

Sudan, Somalia, whatever!

“How can we bring pressure on the government of Somalia?” McCain asked, which prompted Mark Salter to correct him. “Sudan,” Salter said. “Sudan,” McCain repeated.


Blogging duties here have been outsourced to Matt Yglesias:
John McCain owns seven homes and forgot to pay taxes on one of them for the past four years. But at least he's not an elitist like Barack Obama. He earned his money the old-fashioned way -- marrying an heiress.

The success of offshore drilling is inversely proportional to the success of Mccain's faltering campaign

On May 28th, Mccain said offshore drilling "would take years to develop."
But by June 16th it turned out offshore drilling "would be very helpful in the short term."

Apparently the worse John Mccain is doing, the more promising offshore drilling becomes.

Note To Sen. Mccain:

Talking about reinstating the draft to fight World War 3 is probably bad optics. Better to stick to your new beliefs about setting up new drilling operations everywhere with their helpful "psychological impact" and don't mention that "a 2004 study by the government's Energy Information Administration (EIA) found that drilling in ANWR would trim the price of gas by 3.5 cents a gallon by 2027."

Someone's up past his bedtime

John Mccain, sound asleep during the 2007 State of the Union:

Here Mccain's just resting his eyes during a congressional hearing on National Defense:
