McCAIN IDIOCY WATCH….It’s hard to keep up. Two examples so far this morning. First, we get a lesson in civil engineering:
Republican John McCain said Wednesday that the bridge collapse in Minnesota that killed 13 people last year would not have happened if Congress had not wasted so much money on pork-barrel spending….”The bridge in Minneapolis didn’t collapse because there wasn’t enough money,” McCain told reporters while campaigning in Pennsylvania. “The bridge in Minneapolis collapsed because so much money was spent on wasteful, unnecessary pork-barrel projects.”
Actually, the bridge collapsed because it was badly built. Pork barrel spending quite plainly had nothing to do with it. Then there’s this:
At least 20 disabled activists, most of them in wheelchairs, were arrested outside Sen. John McCain’s offices Tuesday after being refused a meeting with the GOP presidential nominee-to-be over a bill to expand Medicaid coverage to more people who want in-home care.
….McCain’s Senate chief of staff said the protesters turned down an offer to meet immediately with McCain’s aides. Mark Busey said he didn’t know McCain’s position on the legislation but would ask.
He doesn’t know McCain’s position on this? Really? Does anyone really believe that? Or is the Straight Talk staff just a wee bit nervous about fessing up to McCain’s position on this?
