McCain: Utterly Unelectable
John McCain pandered to a foreign newspaper yesterday, saying things that would make him utterly unelectable if uttered in an American forum.
McCain told the Telegraph, a UK based paper, that he found America's bad image abroad to be "A very dispiriting situation and I know we will have to work hard to improve it."
McCain wants to dry clean the image of the "ugly American," and in order to do so, "I would immediately close Guantanamo Bay, move all the prisoners to Fort Leavenworth (an army base in Kansas) and truly expedite the judicial proceedings in their cases," he said. "I would reaffirm my commitment to address the issue of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. I know how important this is in Europe in particular."
Sure, McCain. Never mind that GitMo has gotten results. Never mind that global warming is unproven junk science. Oh, and never mind that the folks who vote for you are from AMERICA, NOT Europe.
Remember the debacle of John Kerry's "global test?" You just went there, sir.
Can you say RHINO?
