Johnny One Note

McCain's POW Excuse

"On deflecting criticism about him not being able to remember how many houses he owns:
"This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years --
in prison,"

And later on explaining he hasn't always had 7 kitchen tables:
I spent some years without a kitchen table, without a chair...

For explaing why he couldn't have possibly cheated by hearing the questions at the Saddleback forum beforehand:
"The insinuation from the Obama campaign that John McCain,
a former prisoner of war, cheated is outrageous."

On explaining away cheating on his first wife with a woman 18 years younger than him:
“know that John McCain’s faith and character
were tested and forged in ways few can fathom.”

On opposing universal healthcare:
[Edwards] noted that he'd always enjoyed government health benefits, McCain responded that he knows what it's like to get inadequate care -- ``
from another government.'

On criticizing a museum dedicated to Woodstock:
McCain criticized Sen. Hillary Clinton for proposing funds for a museum celebrating Woodstock. He didn't know what there was to celebrate, he said, because he was "
tied up" during the music festival.'

And even on explaining his musical tastes:
Explaining that his favorite song was "
Dancing Queen" by ABBA, he offered that his knowledge of music "stopped evolving when his plane intercepted a surface-to-air missile." Dancing Queen, however, was produced in 1975, eight years after McCain's plane was shot down."

Hmm, there was one other guy who based his whole schtick on one event, wasn't there?
