The “Washington Squares”
Yeah, somebody might mention this to Dana Milbank, Bill Kristol and the "presumptuous" (i.e. "uppity") crowd:
Standing behind a lectern in Michigan this week, with two trusted senators ready to do his bidding, John McCain seemed to forget for a moment that he was only running for president.
Uh-oh, it looks like somebody’s in danger of not getting to sit on McCain’s lap:
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili says he talks to McCain, a personal friend, several times a day. McCain’s top foreign policy adviser, Randy Scheunemann, was until recently a paid lobbyist for Georgia’s government. McCain also announced this week that two of his closest allies, Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.), would travel to Georgia’s capital of Tbilisi on his behalf, after a similar journey by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice…The episode also follows months of sustained GOP criticism of Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, who was accused of acting too presidential for, among other things, briefly adopting a campaign seal and taking a trip abroad that included a huge rally in Berlin.
And results similar to Rice too, no doubt, as the Russians have gotten all they wanted…and they’ll keep it.
Say, it sure would be interesting to know when these "daily" talks started and what they were comprised of? I’m pretty sure even the GOP cannot assert a "Presidential Candidate" privilege. Especially since the criticism of Russian actions shouldn’t cause us to completely ignore the fact that Saakashvili is a bit of a rouge and a chunk of moron himself.
This video of McCain the other day sums up the whole … "John McCain Experience" — if you’ve seen a more pathetic campaign stop since "Bob Dole Stagediving" you’ve watched entirely too much C-Span:
Which, if you’re like me — and I know I am, reminds you not so much of any other candidate but this:
