How stupid do they think we are?

The stupidity of McCain’s surrogates keeps getting better and better…

Today it’s Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. He appeared on ABC This Week this past Sunday and had the balls to take Sen. Obama to task for being absent on so many Senate votes, saying; “Sen. Obama’s been gone more than he’s been here.”

Apparently either someone forgot to tell Graham or he’s too narrow-minded to see the truth… which is that McCain remains THE MOST absent member of the senate… missing 63.8% of senate in the 110th Congress compared to Obama missing 45.5%.

So either Graham didn’t read up on his facts or he’s simply making them up… as conservatives are prone to do as this is hardly the first time that McCain or his surrogates have tried to paint a picture that Obama is ignoring his senate duties… and each time it’s mentioned that McCain is ignoring his senate duties as well, just at a higher level because he’s missed MORE.

McCain slammed Obama for missing a vote that HE ALSO MISSED…

McCain said he hasn’t missed any votes on energy legislation…EVEN THOUGH HE HAS…

McCain said he supports Sen. Webb’s GI Bill (he didn’t) and to show how much he supports it, HE SKIPPED THE VOTE…

So once again Lindsey is employing the gop’s tactic of not letting facts get in the way of a good talking point.

And McCain surrogates with the last name of Graham weren’t finished as senator Phil Gramm has talked his way into trouble yet again.

(Yes, I know they spell them differently, but they both pronounce them the same and both share a tendency to say incredibly stupid things… a feat in and of itself)

After saying in July that the US has “become a nation of whiners” the McCain campaign allegedly stopped soliciting assistance from Gramm…well, that didn’t happen, and now Gramm’s stepped in it once again.

Speaking to McCain supporters are a Financial Services Roundtable during the convention, Gramm said; “If you’re sitting here today, you’re not economically illiterate and you’re not a whiner, so I’m not worried about who you’re going to vote for.”

He’s right… McCain supporters aren’t whining… because they’re going to get tax breaks up the wazoo if McCain is elected why the Middle Class gets screwed with their pants on.


No way. No how. No McCain. No Quayle Palin.
