McCain Jumps the Gun with “My Fellow Prisoners”

In a speech today, John McCain told the audience: “Across this country, this is the agenda I have set before my fellow prisoners.”

Here is a 13 second YouTube clip from the speech.

I thought McCain had been in politics long enough to know not to notify people that he was nullifying all their rights until after the election.

    Jim, you just can’t make this stuff up anymore. I guess I’m still a bit nieve, but I thought for sure when I hit the link for the You Tube, an Onion bit would have come on, or even Andy Borowitz! I guess he’s abandonded his part on “my friends”. I watched a taped part of the debate while waiting for my truck to be repaired, and I stopped counting after 10 that phrase, “my friends”, as if he has any.

    Either no one noticed this at this rally or they really are good at keeping straight faces. Maybe they are on drugs.

    I’m surprise that this hasn’t got more play. Regardless, he’s still unfit due to suffering from ADD when it comes to the Constitution.

    Jean – I hope your truck is running smoother now than John McCain did last night in the debate.

    Dude was stalking around the stage like a sawed off Frankenstein.

    Ryan – I don’t know what the speakers who preceded McCain may have said at this rally, but maybe the attendees already had numb brains.

    Good quip on the ADD & the Constitution…

    With Wardens like this who needs prisoners?

    Maybe McCain was going for the prison guard vote. That’s especially big in states like California, where the prison guard union has been called the most powerful special interest in the state.

    Jim, With the Prison Guard union being the most powerful union in California, I suppose it is nigh past the time to pull the uniform out and brush the epaulettes and shine the jackboots.

    Especially with the rhetoric on the presidential campaign trail, this is no time for dusty jackboots.
