AND WHEN THE HELL IS THIS STUPID PRESIDENTIAL RACE OVER?
FITSNews – November 15, 2007 – You know the political “silly season” is upon us when the press starts manufacturing scandals (like they’re not enough real ones to report on) and then tries to pre-package some canned outrage over something that’s really not that big a deal to begin with. Like Barack Obama’s lapel pin. Or the old lady that asked Sen. John McCain earlier this week in South Carolina “How do we beat the bitch?” (CLICK HERE to watch).
Well, some blowhard CNN anchor decided to take McCain’s response to the lady – which was “that’s an interesting question” – and turn it into a little mini-scandal/ hissyfit. (CLICK HERE to watch that).
At any rate, apparently eager to score some points with the FOX News crowd by doing some gratuitous CNN-bashing, McCain decided to step up the profile of the “controversy” yesterday by focusing his weekly conference call with bloggers on the incident.
We didn’t phone in because we were busy (and because frankly McCain’s conference call music usually sucks), but at the end of the day the fact some crabby old Republican bag from South Carolina called Hillary Clinton a “bitch” is about as newsworthy as us yawning. What we really want to know is why does everybody who hangs out with McCain always look so old? Well, that, and when the hell is this stupid election over, anyway? Seriously, we don’t even vote and it’s starting to piss us off …
