McCain uses baseball to try to score against Obama

Posted by karmalily on October 22, 2008

I’m so very tired of John McCain and his bullshit. Seriously.

What is McCain’s latest reason you shouldn’t vote for Barack Obama? Baseball.

From BBC News:

Speaking in Pennsylvania, Mr McCain said: “Now, I’m not dumb enough to get mixed up in a World Series between two swing states.

“But I think I may have detected a little pattern with Senator Obama. It’s pretty simple really. When he’s campaigning in Philadelphia, he roots for the Phillies, and when he’s campaigning in Tampa Bay, he ‘shows love’ to the Rays.

“It’s kind of like the way he campaigns on tax cuts, but then votes for tax increases after he’s elected.”

What did Obama actually say?

“I’ve said from the beginning that I am a unity candidate, bringing people together. So when you see a White Sox fan showing love to the Rays – and the Rays showing some love back – you know we are on to something right here.”

Seriously, that’s exactly what McCain was referring to. So not only is McCain a liar, he pathetic. Maybe he thinks talking about baseball, America’s favorite sport, will win him some votes. I doubt it.

McCain’s strategy is becoming more and more like a disgruntled child who isn’t getting what he wants.
