My favorite come back so far:
McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said in response: â€œDoes a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses? Does a guy who worries about the price of arugula and thinks regular people â€˜clingâ€™ to guns and religion in the face of economic hardship really want to have a debate about whoâ€™s in touch with regular Americans?â€
ZING! See how loud they scream when you have the audacity to punch back?
Hawaii is now the destination of the ultra-rich elite and arugula, produce that can be found in even the shabbiest mixed bag of salad greens, graces the palates of kings!
Of course, air-headed, snark-meister Sharon and the Righteous Indignation Brigade are predictably clutching their collective pearls and decrying “LIBRUL HIPPOCRISY!!!” as if the damage hasn’t already been done. The amen corner can wave their arms about Rezko (a sound bite that the networks are already tired of “reporting” on) and try to muddy the waters but the one key bullet-point that voters are going to walk away with is that Obama owns one house and McCain owns enough houses that he doesn’t have the right to lecture anybody on being an out of touch elitist. He’s also a man who isn’t above hiding behind his wife’s skirt when he’s caught in a pinch.
PS – I don’t know whether you folks are aware of this but McCain was a POW! Who knew?
