Hot, Sexy Toe-Sucking Econ Advice, Dick Morris Style

Dick Morris has opened his considerable yap again, this time about economics and McCain. Ordinarily I’d just yawn, but it is too inane to pass without mockery.

Especially given that the McCain campaign has scheduled a stop in Ohio that is rife with lobbying comeuppance on McCain’s easily influenced purchase price with the help of his good ole pal Rick Davis. Never mind that McCain’s campaign says that job loss in Ohio as a result of the very deal he championed is a "narrow, protectionist concern."

Guess once his cronies have gotten their humongous payout of the backroom lobbying deal, the little people should just STFU then?

You remember our good buddy, uber-lobbyist Rick Davis, don’t you? If this were the first time he’d influenced McCain on behalf of a foreign interest client, it would be a blip — but it most assuredly is not. Not even close. In fact, Davis has been setting up meetings with clients while he has been McCain’s campaign manager. Ooopsie!

And what does Dick Morris say about the faltering US economy? It is too awesome for the GOP and McCain, that’s what. (I kid you not!):

…McCain can put economist after economist on the air to prophesy depression if Obama’s plan for taxes is enacted. And the public will not be reassured by the Democrat’s claims that his tax hikes are only on the rich.

Translation: "McCain doesn’t know his hind end from a hole in the ground about the economic woes of this nation or how to even begin to work on them, but his advisors will rock yer world (while they lobby on the side). Trust us."

Ummm…now where have I heard that before? Newsflash Dick: the raising taxes boogah boogah? So 1991. YAWN.

When we want economic advice from a toe-sucking whoremonger spin man, we’ll be sure to give you a call. Don’t wait by the phone.
