They Should Just Get A Machine To Do It
Okay, folks, let's play Campaign Mad Libs. Here's what I need: an illogical attempt to turn the accusation around at the other candidate --
"We're delighted to have a real estate debate with Barack Obama," said spokesman Brian Rogers, adding that the press should focus on Obama's house. "It's a frickin' mansion. He doesn't tell people that. You have a mansion you bought in a shady deal with a convicted felon."
-- a defense of McCain's actions that involves the fact that he was a POW, no matter how little that has to do with the subject at hand --
He also added: "This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years -- in prison," referring to the prisoner of war camp that McCain was in during the Vietnam War.
-- and an attempt to paint Barack Obama as "elitist."
"In terms of who's an elitist, I think people have made a judgment that John McCain is not an arugula-eating, pointy headed professor-type based on his life story."
Huh. That worked out better than I thought.
