If you’re supported by that same quartet, you must be Mitt Romney.
Cue the surrogates, classy as always:
“There’s nothing redeeming about John McCain,” DeLay told Fox News.
While McCain was being tortured in a POW camp, DeLay was squashing cockroaches. He wanted to fight Commies, mind you, but affirmative action stood in the way. No, seriously, that’s what the former exterminator once claimed:
He and Quayle, DeLay explained to the assembled media in New Orleans, were victims of an unusual phenomenon back in the days of the undeclared Southeast Asian war. So many minority youths had volunteered for the well-paying military positions to escape poverty and the ghetto that there was literally no room for patriotic folks like himself. Satisfied with the pronouncement, which dumbfounded more than a few of his listeners who had lived the sixties, DeLay marched off to the convention.
Tale a wild guess who, between McCain and DeLay, is more popular among the conservative base.
*I couldn’t resist this quickie from F*Hugh:
Taking a page from his Michigan strategy, John McCain lets Florida homeowners know he won’t be there for them the next time an Andrew comes ashore.
