Exxon-McCain ’08

OK, talking points ahead, but this was too dang funny to let slip by.

Now, you may have heard of the tire gauge stunt that totally backfired on the McCain campaign (I really want to type McSame, but am forced to backspace for civility's sake. That's easy to do when you are correct on the issues). It back fired, because, well, Obama a) didn't say what McCain implied, and b) what he did say was correct and made perfect sense. See, he wasn't setting some time National Energy policy when he spoke of tire gagues, he was answering a Citizens question:
"So now the Republicans are going around - this is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it! They’re going around, they're sending like little tire gauges, making fun of this idea as if this is 'Barack Obama's energy plan.'

"Now two points, one, they know they're lying about what my energy plan is, but the other thing is they're making fun of a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4 percent. It’s like these guys take pride in being ignorant.

"You know, they think it is funny that they are making fun of something that is actually true. They need to do their homework. Because this is serious business. Instead of running ads about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears they should go talk to some energy experts and actually make a difference."
Oooo , sting . . . burn!!

And now, the DNC is joining forces to make sure the electorate is very clear on what motivates McCain and the GOP this cycle, by launching Exxon-McCain ’08. I like how they put McCain in the Veep slot *laughing*
“The oil industry was so generous with its campaign largesse,” a party official says, “John McCain has not only put Exxon on the ticket — but he has graciously stepped aside and is allowing Exxon ... to run at the top of the ticket."
Anyway, 'Are you Pumped?"
