At long last, the moment you've been waiting for: John McCain is back on the campaign trail!
Sure we all watched Johnny ham it up on the Tonight Show, laughing like a little girl about how he wasted the last two years of his life, compromised his integrity, all but ruined his reputation, picked some lunatic as his running mate, and sold out to the fringe right wing of his party all to return to the same damn senate seat (and same cold wife) he had before this whole "election" thing.
Ha ha, pure comic gold, Johnny!
Yes, in his first political appearance since losing the presidency to that lanky kid, McCain works his magic for another Republican he actually can't stand, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, who failed to capture 50 percent of the vote and now faces a Dec. 2 rematch with Democrat Jim Martin.
With his trademark forced smile masking a deep, simmering hatred and all the charisma of Ben Stein, McCain urges Georgia voters to make the right choice and elect Sen. Saxby Chambliss to the Senate.
"I didn't think I'd be back on the campaign trail quite this early. But there is a lot at stake here. ... I'm asking you to go into battle one more time."Sure, McCain and Chambliss have had some disagreements in the past.
Like when McCain spoke out against a controversial ad Chambliss used in 2002 to question the national security credentials of his then-rival Democratic Sen. Max Cleland, a triple amputee wounded in Vietnam, calling Chambliss' ad featuring Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, "worse than disgraceful, it's reprehensible."
But the past is the past. And as McCain explains, now it is time for everyone to come together in support of ole Saxby.
"We let spending get out of control and it cost us a lot of our conservative base."Which is exactly why it is so important to elect the very candidate whose party's reckless spending got us in this terrible financial crisis in the first place.
Looks like Johnny took a page right out of his own brilliant campaign book!
