McCain In Bush Ads Make Me Laugh

I notice the news running stories about McCain as Bushies try to to rain on the Democrats’ parade. Something about Edwards being the second choice. As if McCain were really thrilled about Bush. Not sure where that came from. But try this on for size, from the DNC website: McCain on Bush.

Fire up your video player, sit back, and check out why McCain is such a great campaigner for GWB. If you’d rather read something, check out:

Doesn’t it suck for the Republicans that the Democrats are responding so quickly to Bush’s shenanigans this time around? As they say (or as they try to say) fool me once… (Check that out, if you have Flash)

I don't think McCain is going to appreciate being used this way by either party. Let's see how he reacts. :-)

Woops, I'm wrong. I forgot the guy has a sense of humor.

"For his part, McCain joked Tuesday about his starring role in Democratic and Republican ads. 'I'm in campaign ads for both candidates. I'm a uniter, not a divider,' he told reporters in Washington."

Must be tough to be so popular!

I love it. Using Bush's uniter line and everything. I wonder which side he really is on in this mess.

That's easy he's on his side. Same as he always has been. You know he's been setting himself up for another white house run in 2008 right?

Trying to gain political support by... playing nice with others?? What kind of a madman does that?! People might actually get off their butts and vote in 2008 if they see someone they *like*.

Nice isn't going to work this year, but maybe 2008 will be different.

Heh. Good point, Bob. He's friendly to both sides. People on both sides like him. His only problem is he's not Republican enough for the Republicans. After all, it's supposed to be Jeb's turn next...

I might get a chance to see Jeb in person. He's speaking at Bull's ship's commissioning. Now, if I can find a way to get to Panama City...

Anyhow, obviously I won't be going for the speaker.
